  15. 15. WHY? SIMPLE: logical UX for designing, no CSS necessary. FEATURES: includes all social and SEO plugins. APPS: very useful, affordable from reputable platforms. CHEAP $14 starter. HELP: good CS and community. SIMPLE: easy to use/hack templates. CUSTOMIZABLE: design beautiful forms, templates are drag + drop (great for design conscious). ANALYTICS: drilled down reports. HELP: best CS and community. Fantastic how-to videos CRUCIAL: get on Google Product Search, which is separate from organic search. You must submit data feed – not easy! And set up Adwords (don’t need pay, though)
