Ok so from the beginning and starting my website I went with Volusion as my ecommerce website solution based on a friends recommendation and after a little bit of research it seemed to be the best with 100 products for about $30 a month.
I soon found out that these "100" products meant that every size on a product that I put up was also counted as a product and when having 3-5 sizes in each item that cut me down to about 25 items so I quickly ran out of space and have not been sure what to do about it and let my website run into the ground a little bit and my stock inventory would also randomly change with them and I got to the point where I needed to bite the bullet and make a change.
So about a year ago at a friends party I became friends with a guy who was running a webdesign company out of his garage, Black Nova Digital, and I decided in taking my leap of faith and spending a large amount of money on a proper web design and set up that I would go with him for the fact that I will be confident in the work that I am getting done and if I can invest in a friends small business I will, I know small businesses can be tricky at the best of times!
I have been working with them for the last month on different ideas for the website and it is now coming up into it's final stages and will be based in Shopify which will be alot cleaner and easier to manage and hopefully I can start getting alot more customers through my website, because lets face it the one that I have at the moment is terrible and people don't really take a second look at it.
Within the next month hopefully the new website will be up and running. And I just wanted to keep everyone up to date with what was happening with me and the shop of late.
