with a custom eCommerce site?
The reason I created it is because my current clients had specific needs for their online store and nothing that is out there fitted 100%. Was mostly too expensive to modify. On top of that various opensource eCommerce solutions get really really slow when you install a bunch of plugins.
I'm currently perfecting the site for the current clients and at the same time I'm thinking to build a few simple live or demo sites to showcase them. I can then throw some $ into advertising them and get some traffic with potential buyers.
The thing that I ask my self is if that is the right way to go. At the moment I can't afford to get a dedicated marketing/sales ppl of this. But my initial goal is get enough income so I can offload this to new team members asap.
My business model is that customers pay monthly fee for using the store and it comes with cloud hosting on my k8s cluster. Initial one-time cost would be for fitting the store to their particular use-case. After the site is launched they pay subscription.
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
