Magento Shopping Website Design - £999.99 plus £49.99/month Hosting and Maintenance.
Why choose Magento for your online store?
Magento is a fully customisable business solution for small to medium companies offering a larger product inventory, therefore it is more than simply an online shopping cart system. The software was first released in March 2008 and now powers more than 230,000 websites.
What can a Magento online shop / store do for my business?
With a shopping site designed around the Magento platform, you will be adding to your current sales channels with an impressive online presence. With the right balance of advertising, SEO and social media marketing, your store will increase revenue for your business via online sales and also attain further exposure of your brand.
How do I run a Magento website on a day to day basis?
There is a learning curve invloved in running a Magento website yourself. Your main target will be to create an environment whereby the vast majority of the workload brought about by the website will be processing customer orders for dispatch. There is however an element of initial site configuration and the ongoing task of utilising the administration features for updating products, offers, images, news letters and so on. These facilities you will need to learn during the first couple of weeks after setup - but generally before going live.
What's included in this design package?
Below is a list of the main features of Magento which are provided as standard. The complexities of additional theme requirements, design considerations, shipping options, stock management, training and maintenance can be discussed and established. Inclusion of certain facilities within the fixed price package will depend largely on your needs. To an extent, the level of business process knowledge which can be transferred to the online process within your organisation will also be a factor.
In summary, a Magento system (as with any online shopping solution) is, in relative terms, a larger undertaking than a standard non-selling website and requires due dilligence from inception through to the day to day running.
