I opened up my Shopify store on a whim in the middle of the night on June 1, 2017. All I wanted at the time was a better platform in which to sell my Blogging Binder on. That’s it. Simple, right?! I had NO CLUE what that simple whim would lead to for me and my blog.
Within my first month opening my store, I made $52,060. Suddenly, I knew I was onto something. Something massive. I started devoting all my time in the store and I saw it grow and grow and grow.
In my fourth month of having my Shopify store, I hit a quarter of a million dollars. The total that month came to $251,276. Since then, very consistently, I’ve been making 6-figures/month in the store, which brought me up very quickly to the 7-figure/year mark.
What started as a whim, took off very quickly, the likes of which I wasn’t prepared for and I don’t know if it’s because I’ve sold on ebay for over 20 years, that I just innately KNOW what works and what doesn’t, or if I got “lucky” and hit on a gold mine. But what I will say is that privately, I’ve began coaching just my friends (I don’t offer coaching to the public) and they are seeing massive results as well using my tips and tricks. In fact one amazing blogger within a month or two of opening up her store, hit 5 figures in sales within a week!
I believe the money is there for store owners, however, most ALL of the stores I see online are doing things COMPLETELY WRONG!!!!!!! It seems like every store I go to is ran the exact same way and I know it’s not producing good money. I want to change that!
There’s no possible way I can personally coach every single store out there (I’m getting a TON of requests), so it’s my intention to start building a foundation, a framework if you will, of where to start if you want to have a rockin’ Shopify store.
These money making tricks: 30 days to a better Shopify store posts will get your store off the ground and moving in the right direction. A direction that is not only profitable, but also fulfilling and meaningful to your personal life.
Each one of my friends have a different TYPE of Shopify store, something that is true to them, their life, their heart, their audience, and their blog, and yet all of them, are doing very well in building a rock-solid foundation that is very profitable.
I hope that you come along for the journey. I consider it a pure joy to share my expertise with you, along with what’s working/what’s not working as I test things continually to make my store the best it can possibly be.
