If you're interested in selling online, first of all, congratulations! It's a rewarding endeavor. In order to be successful, you need to do it right. I have used many different platforms for selling online and I have found that Shopify provides the most turn-key product to begin with. Sellers can have a store up and running in a matter of minutes (as I show in this course).
Not only is it quick to start, but Shopify provides countless tools to enhance your experience. All of them are easily installable.
I will show you how to:
I will then guide you through the process of getting those products on a live store that you own, ready for the public to consume.
Funny you should ask. Facebook provides the most targeted and affordable advertising platform on the web. With their database, we are sure to find an audience that is eager to buy your products.
I will show you how to:
What is Shopify? Why should I choose it for my e-commerce solution? Let's get these answers.
Before starting a store, we need to decide what kind of items we'll be selling.
Signing up with a free trial (http://ecomfastlane.com/shopify), choosing a store name and setting up our account.
Having our store look good is just as important as the products it sells. Let's make our store look great and trustworthy.
Add key pages, contact forms, and menus that are expected of every store. Establish proper .com domain and site description.
Choosing between the many options we have to receive payments (Shopify, Stripe, Paypal, etc...)
There are a few options we need to decide on how our customers' checkout process will flow.
In order to employ a "Free + Shipping" promotion, we need to establish some shipping rules or get an app that will make it much easier.
Shopify provides many add-on features with the use of apps. These are a few of the essentials that will save us time in the long-run and help us recoup a lot of money.
There are a few places you can find products. We will walk through these places and discuss what to look for and how to choose the first products for your store.
Once we figure out what items we want to sell, we need to import them into our store with Oberlo (http://ecomfastlane.com/oberlo).
Once our products are set up in store, let's create the upsell funnel to create more revenue!
Our store needs a Facebook Page in order to have ads sent to it. We also need to make an attractive ad banner.
Start the ad publishing process by selecting the audience you are targeting. Do this using Facebook's Ad Set function.
Once the ad is finalized with the proper image and written copy, you are ready to start sending traffic to your product page.
Use Oberlo to send orders to AliExpress and purchase them for your customers.
