Using a Third Party Platform

There are so many platforms to choose from – how do you know which platform is best for a startup online business?

So, which platform is best for you as and the type of business you intend to run? Your decision will be based on your product or service offering, the geographic location you will offer to, the functionality requirements, and your own knowledge and experience of online platforms.

We strongly recommend you carry out in-depth research of the platform you wish to choose. We’ve listed just a few of the advantages and disadvantages for you to consider - but remember, one size does not fit all and so you need to consider the solution that’s just right for you.

To be hosted or self-hosted - that is the question!
