Dripping Springs, TX, June 01, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- A virtual book release party was held today for the "ShowMe Guides(tm) VirtueMart 2 User Manual" paperback. The guest of honor is popular Open Source eCommerce author Kerry Watson. This is the first book published in English about the open source ecommerce program VirtueMart 2 and the first available on Amazon.com. It was published simultaneously on all Amazon.com sites around the world, though it may take a few days for full availability.
Max Milbers, Project Lead for VirtueMart, praised the new book: "This is the official English VirtueMart 2 user manual, and it has my seal of approval.... I reviewed and approved this book before publication. This is the best user manual on VirtueMart 2 I have seen. The author, Kerry Watson, is an expert on open source ecommerce and brought a wealth of experience to the topic. This user manual is written in plain language with many screenshots, so a person with no experience with VirtueMart 2 - even if English is a second language - can understand exactly how to get, install, and set up a VirtueMart 2 store step by step. No technical experience is needed."
VirtueMart is one of the world's most popular ecommerce platforms, and it has experienced huge growth each month since VirtueMart 2 was released in December, 2011. VirtueMart has more shops in the Alexa Top One Million survey than osCommerce, PrestaShop, Volusion, Yahoo Stores, OpenCart or Ubercart. Now that a user manual is available, the growth should surge.
In addition to covering every Admin menu of the program, the user manual includes much bonus material:
- List of recommended web hosts that will install VirtueMart for free
- How and where to hire technical pros to help you with your shop
- Top 5 SEO Tips for VirtueMart Cheatsheet
- Six Tips to Get Great Forum Answers Cheatsheet
- How to install a professional template, and
- Online Security and Records Management.
A special companion Ebook offer is available for purchasers of the paperback on Amazon.com. Submit a copy of your Amazon receipt to receive a free, full-color downloadable copy of the book even before your paperback arrives.
