    I think a lot of people on here use MrSite which is pretty reasonable, but we are also blessed with a lot of IT people on here so i think you will soon get plenty of info. There have been a couple fo threads in the vein so lots of info to be had

    I think if you aren't knowledgeable in Web Development or Design a Mr Site or something like that is a good option. Have you thought about Etsy or something like that where you can potentially reach a huge audience without having to do so much work in terms of SEO and promotion?

    Also take a peek at the Business Link site, lots of free resources for going into business: Business support, information and advice | Business Link

    I have to say it. If you're going to even consider writing anything for a website, or for etsy, you really have to start doing it in 'real' English. Textspeak, deliberate mis-spellings (which seem popular with teenagers at the moment for some reason) etc, just will not do, both here in the UK and especially for anything like etsy which also covers the US market.

    If you're dyslexic, or have problems with spellings, please make sure you either use a good spellcheck, or better still, ask somebody to proofread for you.

    There are few things more offputting in a website than bad spelling, punctuation and even grammar. They just imply a lack of pride and professionalism, and there's no excuse for them.

    I'm not that keen on mangling the English language on forums either.

    coodnt agree more...nofink wors den bad speeling.!!!http://www.cooksongold.com/forum/ima...ilies/nono.gif would say is that if you want to really sell jewellery online then you need a good ecomerce site and they can cost up to 1,500...then SEO and with a term like 'Jewellery' to optmise you are looking to spend thousands . I know of a good SEO company so PM me if you want....spend depends on what you want/need...
