"I operate as a consultant to the small-to-medium business sector and have previously used the IRUN package to build a relatively straightforward website to promote my consultancy practice. However, with the Equineweb.com website I needed to build an eCommerce site to enable me to sell polocrosse equipment via the internet.
With some trial and error, I managed to build the site on my own, with no training, and got everything working so that visitors can now purchase goods online, easily and securely.
Through my experience of the IRUN package, I am now able to demonstrate to my consultancy clients how easy it is to build a website, even one with a complex eCommerce function.
The website has only just been launched so it is too early to evaluate its performance. However, in the next few weeks I will be promoting the site to all my contacts, using its newsletter function. From this I hope to gain some valuable Christmas trade, as well equipment sales prior to the new polocrosse season, which starts in April 2008.
Most people don’t think they can build a website themselves, but I have shown that they can."
