Any freelance creative who’s in the game for long enough will face the same choice: to carry on as they are or to take the leap into the world of eCommerce and start selling your products online.

If you decide to become an online trader, you then face a further choice: do you sell your products on sites like Etsy or ebay, or do you create your own site and create a virtual shop front?

Many people go for the former option, but for those brave souls that decide to strike out on their own, one of the important decisions that will have to be made is just what kind of sales process you are going to have.

Since the release of Windows 8 at the beginning of this year, the so-called ‘flat design’ discussion has sprouted up all over the web. A lot of people call it a ‘new trend’ and while as a trend itself it can be considered a new thing, as a design concept it’s been around for years.
