MVP055: How to move/renovate your local game store without going insane

posted in: Podcasts | 0


Every owner of a profitable game store will eventually face a difficult decision. Do you move your store or do you expand? Well, lucky for you this episode of the Manaverse Podcast covers both! Gary Sproul from the Haunted Game Cafe and John Coviello come on to share their experiences with both sides of the coin.

John elected to move his entire store to another location and Gary chose to gobble up the retail space next to his existing one and expand. We cover the pros and cons of both approaches as well as tips for getting the job done either way without going bankrupt in the process.

Need a website to sell your products online? Check out Bluehost and you can get access to a special deal where you can sign up for web hosting at only $3.49/month. Why Bluehost you might ask? Why not GoDaddy or Host Gator? 

Nothing against either of those two options, I'm sure they both can do the job. But what it comes to hosting I like to keep things simple and reliable. Everything about Bluehost is easy, signing up is a breeze, installing WordPress takes a single click, and up time (the time your website is available and online) is nearly 100%. When I broke this site and needed to fix it, their customer support went in for me, removed the offending plugin, and got Manaversesaga back online in less than thirty minutes. 

It doesn't hurt that Bluehost's prices are very affordable and you can host multiple domains on a single hosting account. So far I've used Bluehost to host every domain I own so far. They can also scale with me as the site requirements go up, if you need something more robust, Bluehost has the tech to handle whatever kind of traffic your going to be looking at.

So if you need a website for your shop, you should check out Bluehost and sign up today. I don't think you'll regret it. Full disclosure, if you sign up through this link I will get a small commission at no cost to you, it helps keep the lights on around here 🙂
