Ecommerce Site or Brochure Site?

This was a decision a client had to make recently, you really need to think about what you want to do / achieve with a website when starting out a business, running an ecommerce website / business is not a simple ‘one-off’ task and we will give you a overview of what you can realistically expect when you come to us for advice about any website.

Here are my notes / thoughts from today’s meeting, initially I do remember we were talking about a non-ecomerce site and that’s where the initial figure may have come from, will still honour this but what you really want / need is a full ecommerce system to show all your products efficiently allowing each to be viewed and purchased efficiently and this will be at our standard rate.
