About the ShowMe™ Guides Series: “Everything you need to know”
The ShowMe™ Guide Series covers everything that a new, non-technical store owner needs to know to open an online store. Each task is rated from easy to difficult. If a task should behandled by a programmer, we say that. If you can get it done for free somewhere, we tell you that too. Every book in the series is based on an ACTUAL install & setup of a full ecommerce store. You see before-and-after shots with a screenshot of the ACTUAL settings that work for that screenshot. The most valuable part is the HOT TIPS for non-intuitive steps. You could buy our book just for the tipsand get your money’s worth. All our books have a 100% no questions asked, full money-back guarantee for any reason. All books in this series are arranged as follows: • • • • Quick Install & 30-Minute Quick Setup Guide Guide to the Menus Advanced Task Information, and Helpful Resources.
WE KNOW YOU ARE BUSY! Our books are NOT loaded with page after page of the history of the Internet or fillermaterial. We cover everything you MUST know, and nothing you don’t.
