About the Help System

This help system is designed to provide you with all of the information you will need to setup and maintain your LiveDesigner Suite site.  You will also find attached to the traditional help system a "Business Guide" which is intended to provide to you with some additional advise on how to be successful with your LiveDesigner Suite Site.  

 

About the Business Guide

The traditional help system found with this business guide will provide to you the necessary basics to setup and maintain your LiveDesigner Suite (LDS) system.  The traditional help system helps you to understand "how" to setup various pieces of your LDS site, for example, pricing or a design catalog while the business guide will provide you more information on "why" you may want to setup pricing in a particular way.  It will also provide to you areas that you may want to consider or factors to take into account when working through the different processes involved in setting up and maintaining your LDS system.  The business guide is here to compliment the traditional help system by providing you with additional perspective on the areas of your business you may need to modify or adjust in order to be the most successful possible with the online portion of your business.  Every business is unique as is every customer that you will provide your products and services to, so this guide will not be 100% comprehensive for you and is not intended to provide you with all of the answers you may need.  However, this guide will serve to provide you with additional information and much needed perspective and further resources in order to inform you as best as possible what factors to consider when making critical decisions related to your online business.
