Thank you for responding in a way that makes me feel a bit less like a idiot. Being
Not trying to make you look like an idiot. What I've provided you is advice I've received from my business mentors after I've gone off doing stupid stuff I've no right being involved in. Like you're about to do.
The most successful Nike retailer in NJ knows a lot about shoes. How well do you think they could design a site to sell shoes, get one that converts into sales, and do SEO? It's not a whole bunch more difficult than google the term 'opensource ecommerce packages' then buying some forum links right?
Clearly it's not. A successful shoe salesperson is almost guaranteed to fail if they decide to jump into your ecommerce area of expertise. Yet you're about to do the same thing, I mean, how hard can it be? This is very basic business 101 stuff even though I learned it the hard way.
Good luck, just don't quit your day job.
