Building a New Website February 05 2014, 0 Comments
Over the past two months we have been building a new and improved (we hope) website. We've gone from researching the different providers and deciding on Shopify, to adding our products and all of their descriptions etc, to deciding on which add-on features we wanted for the site. We also decided on which shopping cart payment providers were the best for our needs. It seems that Shopify has its own checkout system called...wait for it...Shopify Payments. Who could've figured that. We also added PayPal for customers that feel more comfortable with them.
Since most of the construction is now done, today we decided to add an app called 'Plug In SEO', that inspects our site's HTML (yeah, there's an app for that) in order to verify that it is optimized for the search engines such as Google, Bing, Yahoo etc. It had me change a couple of lines of code, add some picture descriptions and a meta tag or two and then it said we were good to go. Oh yeah, we also added a 'Wish List' and a 'Reviews' widget.
So I guess that by next month at this time we'll be rich beyond our wildest dreams! Yeah, this website stuff is a piece of cake.
