Yes! The Thunder Bay Shopping Site offers showcases (websites).
So just what is a ‘showcase’ website?
Think of our site like a virtual department store or a mall where you rent your own space for your site within. So you can have something like http://YourBusiness.ThunderBayShopping.com/ web space where you can run your own website from.
Why would I want a website here?
You are probably thinking I could get one of those free websites or use Facebook as my online presence (or you already have). The problem with those is you don’t really have control of your own content and how your site works. Yep, think about it… Can you move your content/website to another service, can you change how the site works?
We use WordPress (a free content management system) so if you outgrow your showcase you can move/upgrade to another service (like WebTerritory.com) with no hassle.
IMPORTANT TIP: Use social media as your on-ramp to your site/content, not as your site/content.
What can I do with my TBS showcase?
Just about anything (within reason), setup an information, shopping, blog and/or customer portal. We have a library of plugins that can be added to your site to allow it to perform the functions needed (ex: PayPal buy now buttons).
Feel free to contact us if you have any more questions or wish to upgrade to a showcase package.
