We are looking for a WordPress platform to educate, promote, and sell our specialty coffees and teas online.
The problem is that we must expand our market online with a platform to educate, blog and/or video blog about what we are doing, what's fresh, why this coffee or that tea is superb, etc. We have a loyal base of customers now, and are looking to expand that. Most of our customers like good coffee, but don't know a whole lot about it.
1. Must be integrated with Twitter, Facebook, etc.
2. We want the site to be able to sell our coffees and teas online, but not "in your face" e-commerce. It should be a blogsite that leads to sells, but isn't all about selling.
3. Must be attractive enough to hold first time visitors to learn more about what's going on.
4. Must be designed to get people to sign up for a free guide "Why does my coffee at home not taste as good as it does at the coffeehouse?"
5. Place to promote our coffee and tea of the month clubs.
Examples of what we like, in order of preference..
