I wondered what other web designers do.......
I have been getting asked more and more to build sites with e-commerce, and/or CMS systems, and as far as I can see I have a few options....
1) Try and integrate an off the shelf product?
Sometimes tricky and doesnt guarentee turning out exactly how the lcient wants
2) Build the whole system from scratch each time?
Would mean high costs for the client
3) Start building my own custom cart and CMS systems, which can be easily tailored to the individual client?
Big initial cost for me
4) Outsource to someone who specialises in these areas?
Wont make so much on a job (i.e. just the design side)
What do other people do/suggest?
