This is the Easy Way to Make a Website for Your Coffee Business

When you start a coffee shop business or an online coffee business, you will have lots on your plate. From choosing the right location, picking your coffee beans, to hiring your employees. Sometimes too much that it can be nearly paralyzing.

Creating your coffee shop website, however, can be a snap.

I recommend that when you decide to start setting up a coffee shop, you should create your online coffee presence.

start a coffee shopHere’s why: It’s a motivation builder!  In fact, one of the great “momentum building” things you can do is to get your future coffee shop website up online.  (And it’s pretty easy and affordable too!)

In fact, I believe that if you have the skills to send an email or update your Facebook page with pictures of  your last vacation, then you certainly have the skills to build your own website. I will demonstrate just how easy it is in the following videos.

But first, when it comes to setting up your “online coffee business”, let’s consider you options:

Shopify makes everything pretty easy by allowing you to quickly get your website up and online and ready for business in relatively no time at all.

Shopify is great if you are about to open your café and if you are wanting to sell stuff directly online right away. They deal with the hosting and the hassle.

The cost is about $29 per month. So, how many sales do you need to make up the cost of having a great website and shopping cart?
