Kevin Sproles stated his modest web-design company at the age of 16. Today, the design service, Volusion.com has evolved into an e-commerce platform that creates the shopping-cart software used by roughly online 15,000 merchants. So what does his site look like? Among other elements, Volusion's homepage promotes a free trial and an online demo, and its navigation bar features a "pricing" tab that lets potential customers choose among 5 levels of service, including a free offering.
