      ***We're honored that this is the best-selling E-commerce Course On Udemy***

Shopify Power: How To Build A Website, Sell Your Products, And Grow A Business On Shopify. Taught by award winning CEO and Adjunct Professor of Online Marketing at Northwest University - Jason Miles. 

About The Instructor & His Authentic Credibility On This Topic: Together with his wife, Miles has sold millions online and their popular shopify website (Pixie Faire) has even been featured by Shopify as one of the sites premiere success case studies. Miles shares their insider tips, techniques, short-cuts and hard-won lessons acquired as they personally set up and built their Shopify site, which currently transacts 40,000-50,000 orders a month and serves over 1 million pageviews. 

How Is This Course Different? This course includes analysis, opinions, techniques, short-cuts, and tips from the instructor that you won't find on the help pages of Shopify, or in other Udemy courses. It also includes  step-by-step site build demonstration section. 

This course offers a unique and systematic framework for planning and launching a Shopify site in a step-by-step method that will prepare you for long-term ecommerce success.

Who Is This Course Designed For? Students should have a basic understanding, or willingness to learn web-building, such as having previously set-up a blog. They should also have the time, patience, and willingness to implement the lessons and details taught in this course. Students should already have a product, product idea, or product plan. If you have a private label product you sell on Amazon, or are an artist, crafter, or seller of unique items - and need a fully functional ecommerce website - then this course will be of value to you. 

Warning, Web Professionals - You May Find This Course Too Basic. We do not cover creating custom themes or working in Liquid (the code language of Shopify). This course is intended for entreprenuers, marketers, brand owners and small business people - not developers. 

Who is the target audience?
  • Take this course if you've decided shopify is the right ecommerce website platform for you
  • Take this course if you're ready to work hard to build your Shopify website
  • Take this course if you have a moderate amount of technology comfort particularly with photo editing using tools like Photoshop Elements
  • Don't take this course if you cannot take photos, write sales copy, or don't have a basic comfort with online tools
  • Don't take this course if you're a I.T. industry professional / developer looking for technical details about Shopify (this course is for entrepreneurs/marketers).

has sold millions online and he shows you exactly how

**Jason is the author of the bestselling Pinterest Power, Instagram Power, and Youtube Marketing Power, all available in bookstores worldwide and published with McGraw Hill. **

In 2008 Jason & Cinnamon Miles founded Liberty Jane Clothing at their kitchen table and began selling One-Of-A-Kind handmade items on eBay. Cinnamon was the artist with a penchant for designing on-trend doll clothes and Jason was the marketer helping during the evennings and weekends. His day job was as a professional fundraiser in Silicon Valley. They used social media to scale their fans, followers, and customers and quickly became eBay Powersellers, ultimately selling millions online via their own websites. How?

In 2009 they began selling digital downloads on their own website. In the first month they sold 11. But sales quickly grew and other designers began asking them if they could publish their patterns on the site too.  

From 2010 to January 1, 2014 Miles served at Northwest University in the Seattle area. As the Senior Vice President of Advancement he managed the Fundraising, Marketing, and Human Resources departments.  

That year they also founded of Sew Powerful, a 501C3 charitable organization focused on combating extreme poverty in Zambia. The Google Foundation has become their largest donor and they've received worldwide support for their innovative Sew Powerful Purse program and creative efforts to combat extreme poverty in Ngombe Compound - the worst urban slum in Lusaka Zambia. 

In 2011 Miles founded the Marketing On Pinterest blog to document their work on the popular social media site and two weeks after launch he was offered a three book deal with McGraw Hill Professional. Each book has been a bestseller and can be found on Amazon as well as in bookstores worldwide including North America, Korea, Australia, India, and Europe.

In 2013 Jason & Cinnamon launched Pixie Faire (a marketplace built on the Shopify platform). Pixie Faire has quickly become the Internet's largest doll clothes pattern marketplace with over 70 designers and over 1.5 million patterns downloaded. It attracts raving fans from both the toy and sewing world. The site averages 40,000 to 50,000 pattern downloads a month.

Jason is an award winning marketer having earned the All-Star Award repeatedly for Email Marketing & Social Media Integration presented by Constant Contact.

On January 1, 2014 Miles retired from the 9-5 world to focus on the growth of his company and charity. His corporate career included twenty years of work in Human Resources, Fundraising, and Marketing.

His work has been featured in Forbes, The Huffington Post, Wharton Magazine (of the University Of Pennsylvania School Of Business), IBM's Connect Chat, CNET, MSN's Business On Main, Social Media Examiner, Profnet, PRNewswire, and other premiere publications.

He is an Adjunct Professor of Marketing at Northwest University and regularly present for the American Marketing Association (AMA) as well as at other industry leading events where he presents on the topics of social media and ecommerce. 

He spends quality time mentoring and coaching others, kayaking, traveling to Africa, and helping Cinnamon teach the pre-school class on Sunday mornings at Renton Christian Center in the Seattle area. 

Jason's passion is to serve and help others, which he brings to his teaching and speaking projects. His unique experience as a Senior Marketer at a University as well as a start-up kitchen table entrepreneur give him a unique ability to connect with a wide range of learners. 

He's sold millions online, but is most passionate about the start-up phase, branding, social media, and the transformational power an online business can have in the lives of hard working people as they turn their dream into reality with proven techniques and practical online marketing strategies.
