Hello again Alan,
I will try my best to address your concerns, kindly refer to my answers below -
1: If I research "Turnkey Shops" on SaleHoo I get negtive feedback responses on forum posts. Perhaps this is a problem of word usage.
In the EBook - The Ebay Fortune Guide - it is recomended. Why?
I haven't read The eBay Fortune Guide so I cannot comment as to why they recommend turnkey stores.
But at SaleHoo we feel that turnkey stores do not necessarily provide the most profitable products to resell thus do not recommend them.
The idea of selling preloaded stores may sound appealing we still would not recommend it. The reason being that you have absolutely no way of distinguishing yourself from the hundreds of other sellers using the same tool or host selling the same products!
If your titles are the same, your pictures are the same, your description is the same, the shipping and service is the same â€“ what is your competitive advantage? Where is your unique selling point?
You might get a couple of sales if you are lucky, but itâ€™s not a workable model for building an ongoing profitable venture. Thatâ€™s just our 2 cents!
2: I am good at using WordPress. But there you have to integrate Plugins which have Pros and Cons. I am shure you know... and 3: Or should I use Zen Cart as recommended so many times?
It depends on how large your store will be, if you're planning on setting up a store with different products and product categories, then we suggest you use zencart since it's designed for ecommerce/online selling.
Unlike Wordpress which is designed for blogging. But if its just a small store offering a few products, then you can just go with Wordpress.
4: Or should I buy a expensive e-commerce solution?
The decision is yours but why buy an expensive ecommerce solution, when you can check out Link hidden: Login to view
SaleHoo Stores helps you sell more with your own professionally designed, search optimized e-commerce website. and we offer 3 different plans so you can choose which one best suits your preference.
5: What is best for SEO!? - LOL - you see where it goes...
I would most probably give you a bias answer to that :) But like I mentioned in my reply to you other post, I would recommend trying our Link hidden: Login to view
If you do decide to get your own SaleHoo Stores store SEO should not be too much of a concern since our stores are designed from the ground up to be easily optimized for the search engines (like Google) you can start getting free traffic from the beginning.
Your Store will even send out automatic messages to the search engines that act as little boosters that help you get noticed faster.
Hope this helps, all the best!
PS, don't worry too much about all the questions that keeping popping up in your mind (i think its common to most everyone who is about to start a new venture online and offline) :)
