Course Description

"For some time now I've wanted to create an online store but I've been told its difficult; it takes time and is expensive" Does this sound familiar???

What are the reviews saying:

"I have tried several times for starting e-commerce since I recognized big potential in E-business.. But I couldn't because It's not easy to build this e-commerce platform. However through this course, I found easy and simple starting point. Though It will be needed to buy license and takes time to build a site. I'm sure this course will give you great opportunities to start your own business. Thank you Sean..."

The One thing I wanted to give you is a laymen's type course; a course that you can follow step by step; a course that at the beginning you have the same starting point of nothing and at the end you have a functioning ecommerce website - something you just need to add products and images to. This is the idea of what this course is; and what it gives you.

It doesn't take time, its not difficult and it certainly isn't expensive. You don't even need stock as you can create an affiliate store..

So, I decided to take all the know how I had and played around until I found out you could create a eCommerce Website in less than 1 hour. Yes! Less that 1 hour and I wrote it down and created this course so that you could create your online shop in less than 1 hour .

In this course your going to learn :

  • How to start from nothing and finish with a working ecommerce website
  • How to use Wordpress, Ultimatum and WooCommerce and create your own online shop
  • Learn how to create your own theme and not change someone else
  • You'll learn how to add products, create coupons, setup postage costs, etc
  • Learn how you can be using a webpage to sell affiliate products
  • ... and much more

One more thing I wanted to do with this course.. Many many many Wordpress and WooCommerce sites out there use the odd free theme or some particular premium themes. What I didn't want to do was create another course where you use that theme and your shop looks like everyone else shop that uses that theme .

Using Ultimatum you start from a blank slate and your create Your Theme and Your Shops Look. You eCommerce site won't look like everyone else, won't get lost in the clutter and will be unique .

So, do you want to have your own ecommerce site. Do you want to have your own theme on that site? Then why not take a look at this course today and be selling .. well today..
