Just wanted to show one of my recent projects. I hope you guys like it. It uses Flash, Builder and WordPress Ecommerce.

I really love IBuilder. It has really helped me to bring more custom wordpress sites to my clients that is really easy for them to update.

Hi Michael,

That is a really nice site! I'm researching ecommerce options; is WordPress Ecommerce easy to implement with Builder? For a non-developer?

Thanks!

Thanks,

To be honest I have just recently changed my ecommerce plugin to Shopp. I think it has more options and I like all the plugins much better. Here is my next ecommerce site I am working that is still in development.

http://eurosteam.com/store/

It is not live yet but you can see the Shopp ecommerce plugin in action there. I think it is easier to implement, plus seems to have less bugs. I am just working on bringing in the UPS Shipping plugin. I like it the best. It also has so many shipping options too. I have that one and two more ecommerce sites I am developing now. So I would recommend that one. :)

Once you get yours done be sure to post it.

Thanks Michael! I've got the Shopp page up reading through it now. One of the things I've worried about on launching an online shop is the inventory management aspect. I see Shopp has a basic inventory mgt with low stock alerts. The US Steam site is nice; I like a minimalist design and that really fits with a green company. I looked through your iDesigns site - small world! We're neighbors; I'm in Carrollton.

Thanks! Actually, I have several in development for me. I've developed a couple of sites for friends' businesses and had set up a web shingle for a marketing communications company. I ran an in-house agency for a national company for 8 years and it was a lot of fun, I handled web, PR, advertising, POP, all graphic design, etc. and love it all very much and planned to offer those services, but then I realized I would rather offer a product vs. a service, so I'm reworking it all at the moment to be a DIY paid member access site. The tech side is my weakness, so I spend a lot of time reading, researching.

One challenge I have now is I launched a social network on Ning in 2008; my membership is just under 1400. But my Facebook Page for the same network is at almost 25,000 - most of the networking occurson FB. So, I've been trying to figure out how to set up a WP blog using the same URL. I have a lot of content on my ning site I'd want on my blog, but haven't quite figured out how to do that due to the URL issue. The audience for this network is animal lovers and advocates; it's been my volunteer work, but it's also allowed me to test some marketing strategies. So, it's been win-win. This is the Ning network: http://www.pawsitivelytexas.com ... I haven't updated the design based on the desire to relaunch as a blog.

The ecommerce shop will be for this market; I want to generate some revenue to support the promotional campaigns for public awareness.

The biggest project I'm working on is the DIY site that will be paid member access. Do you have any experience with amember pro? I know it can do what I need, I just haven't tried to implement it yet, so I don't know how technical it will be.
