Lesson 10.1 Insurance
Hi Tammy, Thank you for joining us. I just checked this page and it was working for me. This might have just been an internet connection issue, or maybe vimeo, where the videos are hosted, has a glitch for a minute? Please refresh the page to try it again. It should work fine for you. ~ Jen
Shoot, you have my attention, and I know a lot about Siteground and other services.
which setup do you recommend for starting a bath and body business? I don't know whether to do 10 or 20GB; will want web hosting. Do they set up the 'initial' website, then you add content (words stated for lack of better understanding)
@tbinning OK, first do you want a free website installed? Because I can do this for you on Thermal Mermaid if you check out lesson 11. This won't cost you anything. Second if you want to have a website installed and set up for you with your own domain (.com) you can do this through AngelFishSolutions.com. Siteground is reliable for webhosting. If you are new to building a website and you want to try to learn how to do it, start with their smallest package. You can always upgrade if you need more resources. Just be aware that the prices you see are introductory, and the real prices are in fine print, and site ground is not the most intuitive set up, so you do have some learning to do, but their customer service has always been helpful.
Oh, no they will not do it for you. You have to do it yourself. A web host company only gives you the space to host the site. You can pay a designer or an administrate through their services, ( I believe. )
Thank you Jennifer. I want to have a website where I have a place to show my products and have a blog to describe why I use certain products etc. I want to have my own domain (after I register my business name). I wanted to start selling locally, and deliver my product, then if it takes off, I would branch out and ship the product. Does this make sense? The website would help get out the word locally about my products. Do you think/suggest I do the route of a 'product sheet' (for lack of a better word)? I'm thinking a colored sheet would be more expensive than a website.
Yes, all these things are possible. It sounds to me like what you are looking for are more advanced website services than the free service I offer at Thermal Mermaid. I do have a web hosting company that can host for you and install a full shopping cart or blog, but depending on your skills you may need to hire a designer, which can get pricey. Typically, what I recommend is to take the baby steps that don't cost money at first. Instead of going all out, start with a small website. You can do this on any number of hosts for a small price, or on ThermalMermaid for free... and then start building from there. This way you'll really get a feel of where your skills are and what you need help with... and also how much of a service you need to look for. Theres nothing worse than over paying for something simple just becasue you didnt know the right tech question to start off. Setting up a store on Thermal Mermaid does not put you under any obligation to keep it or even use it, but maybe it will help to get your feet wet so that you know how much work is involved. Thats just an idea, but of course you may be already well past this stage, so we can bounce those ideas around here on this thread, if you like.
