I have embarked on two new adventures in selling on the web—a bookshop on my website and a store page on society6 which produces art as prints, cell phone cases, pillows, stationery, and more. I’ve been wanting to offer my published books in a more consistent way for a long time. I’ve also been watching these sites that put art on all kinds of items and have had a hankering to do so with something of mine. It’s a coincidence that it has all come together in this week of week of cyber selling promotion. Here’s a little about each and links.
I use weebly drag and drop for my website which I love and have used for other websites as well. I find it very easy to use and like the clean look I can get with it. However I have found that there are limitations to its ecommerce store. Here’s a wee bit about why for those who are interested in such things. If you’re not, feel free to skip on down. Weebly gives the option for categories which I wanted to use. Mine are Books About Making Books for Children and Art Books and Catalogs. I wanted one page with both categories but that was not an option. Therefore, I had to do them as separate pages. Because I didn't want two items in the navigation bar, I had to create a drop down menu under bookshop. This means that there cannot be a direct link to the general title of Bookshop, but only to the two separate categories. To some degree they are separate markets so it is not awful but it would be better if I were able to share a link to Bookshop. Since I had been sending potential buyers offsite to amazon or etsy, I consider this to be a big improvement and am happy to share it with you.
