Build your website
With MadBeeTech, you get your own .com website with a domain name of your choosing.
The MadBeeTech website builder software is included with every website. From your
private administration area you easily define the theme, or overall look, of your
site. Then you enter text and optionally upload graphics to give your site the content
you want. It's all point and click — there's never any HTML, programming,
or code to know. In no time at all you'll have your own e-commerce site.
Sell digital downloads
Most small business site builders allow you to sell shippable products, but don't
allow you to sell digital downloads (sell downloadable files). With your MadBeeTech
website you can choose to sell shippable products, downloadable files, or both.
To add a digital download to your online store, just supply the basic information
for that product (title, description, and price), then click the Upload
button to upload the file to sell. That's it — your file is ready to be purchased
and downloaded by customers who visit your site. When a customer makes a purchase,
that customer automatically receives an email with instructions on how to download
the purchased file. You automatically get emailed a notification of the sale. You
need do nothing to complete the sale — the customer downloads the file, and
the money goes directly into your PayPal account!
Include a Membership-Only Area
Your MadBeeTech website allows you to have a membership area that is accessible
only to visitors who choose to sign up, and pay, to become members. You set the
registration payment options to whatever price and monthly time table you'd like.
When a visitor signs up to become a member, that visitor automatically receives
an email with a username and password providing instant access. You automatically
get emailed a notification of the registration, and the new member's payment goes
right into your PayPal account. The membership area includes pre-defined pages for
displaying videos, photos, and audio files, and for listing files of any type for
member download. If a page doesn't apply to the type of content you want in your
site's membership area, you simply turn off that page. Adding custom pages, such
as a blog, is done with a click of the mouse button. If you choose to not include
a members-only area, one mouse click turns off that feature.
Set up your online store
To sell a product online, just type in a product title, description, and price.
Optionally upload pictures of your product with a click of a button. Easily change
the product information or price at any time. Your site includes an integrated shopping
cart, so once a product is entered, it's automatically ready to be added to a customer's
shopping cart when the customer clicks the product's Add To Cart button.
Promote your online business
When you sign up for your website, MadBeeTech submits your site to all the major
search engines, including Google, Yahoo, and MSN. Get listed, and start getting
business — fast. Additionally, your site's administration area allows you
to enter a site description and keywords particular to your business. This information
that's personalized for just your site helps search engines categorize your site
so that it shows up when potential customers do online searches.
Accept credit card payments
MadBeeTech is a web host that provides a complete web hosting experience. When a
customer at your site has finished adding products to the shopping cart, the customer
checks out. At that time the customer chooses to pay using a credit card, debit
card, or PayPal account. The money from the sale immediately appears in your PayPal
account. You don't need to sign up for a long-term, costly, credit-checking merchant
account. When a customer makes a purchase, the customer is automatically emailed
a receipt, and you are automatically emailed notification of what was purchased,
and who bought it, so you can ship the items to the customer.
Include a forum (message board)
A forum (message board, discussion board, bulletin board), is used for holding discussions.
A forum is a means of creating a community to ask, and get answers to, questions.
If you're selling downloadable software you might have a forum for feedback and
support of the software. If you're selling sports memorabilia you could start a
forum about sports souvenirs. There's no restrictions on the subject matter of forums.
Your website includes a forum page that you administer — you define the initial
groups, or topics, and then visitors post messages. If you're not interested in
running a form, simply turn the forum off and it disappears.
