Hi! I enjoyed your video. You are always very helpful. I was wondering if you designed your own website (blog)? If so, what theme is that on squarespace because it’s beautiful!
I currently use Weebly for my business…. they are continually adding features which is nice but there are negatives to their platform as well… I picked them because of the ease of use, it was the least overwhelming for me.
Thanks so much for this! I’m at the crossroads of where to go and make my own website in addition to my Etsy shop. I too found WordPress way out of my league, as far as my skills go trying to modify my needs so I’ve put it on the backburner. I’ve also checked Shopify, which looks promising but I wasn’t sure how easy it was to use and navigate. Your Shopify shop looks absolutely gorgeous and I’m glad to hear that it’s doable even for those of us who aren’t programmers and coders!
But I do have a couple quick questions for you:
Do you have more sales on Etsy or Shopify? And which site provides you with a larger profit after all the backend costs?
Thanks so much! 🙂
Thank you so much Holly. This was very helpful information. I currently have GoDaddy and I’m so frustrated with it and getting no sales in my shop. I look forward to seeing more of your videos. Nice to meet you!
Thanks @Holly Marie Casto. I need to find a new host in 2 weeks since my current plan expires. I’m looking for the easiest site possible!
Hi Holly, I was checking your blog and it’s possible to pay with PayPal. May I ask you how you you managed to enable Squarespace to accept it? Thanks
Great tips! Thanks for sharing.
I just heard about this one platform called volusion. It’s free for the first 14 days and the basic fee monthly is $15 to list up to 100 items and goes up from there.
Great video! Very informational. Thank you.
I checked out your blog, it’s beautiful!
Thank you for the upload, it helped alot! New sub☺
+Holly Casto ?
Holly….Really good review. My thanks !!
This was very helpful… Thanks!
thanks so much Wendy!
Thank you for this video. Can you post a list of your sites indicating which are made with what platform
Great video, my choice for myself and all of my clients has been WordPress due to how easy it is to use and update.
This was extremely helpful. Thank you, for taking time out of your day to give us valuable information. I wish you the best in your endeavors. 🙂
Awesome video! Thank you so much for the information. I know this is an older video, but I do have a question if you have the time. My business is conducting physical classes that upon completion provide a certification. I want to build a website that people can go to to either pay for the class ahead of time, or put a down payment. In the future I am looking to offer the whole class online complete with training videos and then the test, but for now I just want to provide the ability for my customers to pay. Which site do you feel would be better for my situation? I have no experience in creating a website. Also, I heard that squarespace does not accept PayPal. Is this true? Thank you very much for your time and help. Sorry for the long post.
Thanks for the info. I have had Squarespace for two years and thought it was not user friendly. I figured it out, but the blog portion was horrible. I’m looking for something different. I did accept Paypal on it, though.
