Hi,
Am currently running a small scale jewellery business from home selling through one shop and through home parties. I would like to try setting up a web site to increase opportunities for selling (possibly) and have heard some good reviews of Mr Site as a package. I have some experience of setting up a website before but with simple programme. Anyone else done such a thing and would appreciate any thoughts / comments on wether i should bother? Have posted in other subjects too to try and catch all relevant peeps.

Hello,
Not had any expereience of Mr Site but someone I know is using http://www.ekmpowershop.com/index.asp and is happy with it. Their templates are pretty customisable and the whole shop part does what you need it to (ie is straightforward for customers and also for you to administer). HTH.

I don't know anyone personally using Mr Site but I have read some good reviews of other beady people using it. It's supposed to be easy to set up I think - best of luck with your venture !

I've used 1 and 1 for mine,thats a website,shop and hosting. They do great deals.

My Dp coded my website himself(his first one) but the shop is done with all 1 and 1 templates.They've got a good range.

Aa Whizz said alot of Jewellery Makers /Bead Artist's use it and get along with it ok.

I used it for mine - it's really easy! (you can get it cheapy on ebay as well.) Actually i do reccomend it - let me see if theres a referral scheme type thingy if you're interested and you may save some ££.

my site here

actually, it wasn't ebay - it was amazon - £14.97 for regular, saving £20.02.

Will look 1 and 1 moonmother - and for those using Mr Site did they have basic one or pro? Only difference i can see is site optimization tools. Thanks.

Hiya

hope I am not too late to join in but my experience with MR Site is not good, have been with them for 2 yrs and am giving up with them-there is no customer support at all and they have cocked up my site twice in the last month - you get what you pay for and £14 is too cheap. If you are going to go with them my 2 words of advice would be
1, don't bother with pro, its not worth it
2, Register your domain first independantly of MrSite so that you own it (it will only cost about £5 for 2 yrs) That way you can change webserver anytime you like.
