The Next Big Things

The collective hangovers from Christmas have subsided, we’re already being bombarded with deals on Easter Eggs at the local ASDA, and we’ve stopped writing “2015” on everything by accident – it’s safe to say we’re now well into the New Year. With this, our eyes are firmly set forward (most of the time, sometimes they’re looking at the great deals on Easter chocolate) on the latest and greatest trends in web design, the concepts that are going to define 2016.

Anyway, although EBay might look like an attractive prospect for new sellers, it can – in many ways – actually hinder your brand rather than help it in the long run. Now we’re not saying you’re going to need a responsive Magento Ecommerce platform just to shift some old junk from the garage, but if you’re going to make a career out of online retail, you might want to consider some other options.
