what website creator is best for ecommerce i have done a bunch of research and have decided on wix dose any one object to this decision and who would you recommend ?

At first i was definitely going to choose WordPress after reading entrepreneur books, after doing some research on YouTube, review sites and a recommendation from a friend, and skimming through websites of different website creators I chose WIX. Does anyone object to this choice of WIX and what would you recommend instead? What has the best value and easiest to access?

As a small business counselor I have noticed there seems to be a belief that a web site, the Internet and social networking can make the business succeed when in fact the real design of the enterprise itself may be lacking (niche, market base, business plan, competitive analysis and financial forecasting)

I hear from many clients who ask, "What Now?" having launched an enterprise that is going nowhere because they are driving the tools and not the car.

I take them back to the garage; design the auto to see if it can run and then apply the wrenches retroactively if that is possible. It is usually a traumatic experience and could have been avoided with strategic and business planning before launch.

Below is a simple test to develop your potential idea for a business.

Do you have a product or service niche in mind?

Do you believe you have a market for 1 above and the means to reach it?

Are you willing to develop a business plan using the tool kit linked below to validate 1 and 2 above before you launch?

If the answer to the above questions is "Yes", use the below planning aids to design your business vehicle and the road map you intend to follow on your journey:

When you have completed the above definition and planning process you will then be in a position to astutely select the tools you wish to use along the way and apply them successfully.

You will be able to network your vehicle, pick up riders as industry partners, and attract revenue fuel in the form of customers by marketing and social networking based on the thorough definition and content of your business plan.

In short, don’t let poor judgments on technology detract from your idea as well as raid your treasury before you launch. Define your business vehicle and its journey first. Then pick the right technology tools to make a successful trip.

No Objection, To be specific to your question, Wix is a good choice. My first choice has always been Shopify, however, Wix is also a very good platform so, in my opinion, you should be fine!

I wish someone would've recommended logodesigns center. I found them on my own .Their quality is 110% there and a much better option than wix .For entrepreneurs who don't want to waste time or money I recommend going with them , they have multiple successful clients .Their work speaks for itself wish I knew about them sooner. Of course you should have a quality product however I believe in business first impressions are big coming off as a real legitimate business stands for a good base of relationship with your customers.
