eCommerce works on many of the same principles as business in general. If you have a product or service that others need and can afford, you are basically in business. The rest is marketing and management.
Whether you are in the business of selling online or offering to help other businesses sell online, you may consider using Magento as part of that solution. But Why Magento? How does it compare to other eCommerce platforms? What does it cost?
Magento is a feature-rich, professional open-source eCommerce solution that offers merchants complete flexibility and control over the look, content, and functionality of their online store. Magento’s intuitive administration interface contains powerful marketing, search engine optimization and catalog-management tools to give merchants the power to create sites that are tailored to their unique business needs. Designed to be completely scalable and backed by an extensive support network, Magento offers companies the ultimate eCommerce solution.
If online documentation, forums, wikis, blogs, and books are not enough to flatten out the learning curve, how about some face time, live presentations, a Q&A session, and networking? The focus is on making Magento work for you by giving you the knowledge and confidence you need.
