We use Tsohost, a very well known hosting company with amazing support. They always offer a discount, with the following affiliate code (click the banner) you can also get a good discount. We can recommend a fantastic web developer who can design and build a website from £500 – £5000. Of course, we don’t recommend you spend over £1000 for your first ecommerce website unless you’re 100% sure about what your doing.
So once you have your website you need to add products. Thats where we come in. We’ll guide you through our range and depending on what you are targeting we can recommend a range suitable.

Trying to find a good reliable digital marketing company is a task in itself. We have used many over the past 15 years and have been promised the world by some. In reality, marketing companies are a business trying to make money so they do have to offer confidence in what they do. We recommend finding someone you can trust, family member or friend who can offer guidance to start but ultimately try and do the basics yourself as we did in the early days. If you get some traction and your business starts to grow then maybe invest in a company with a proven record. We use Simba Digital. Ben has many years of experience who always offers more than than he promises. Simba also offer Web Design so worth taking a look.
