How to create your own ecommerce store, find product, get traffic and start sales

hi guys! as you know im a passionate jetsurfer but i am also doing
ecommerce selling on amazon and shopify and today i am going to show
you how you can make money by opening your own shopify store, what
tools you need and what traffic sources you can use.

As a fresh example I will be using my new surfing fashion store that
I just opened, take a look. It’s called Noshoes store and it’s selling
funny tshirts http://noshoes.store
It’s a fully functional website so in case you want to support me and
what we do at jetsurfingnation feel free to buy a funny tshirt for
yourself or your friends!

Allright! lets get started! To keep this video quick I will be only
showing you essential tools you need, assuming you already have a
basic understanding of ecommerce. If you have never done any ecommerce
before, then the best is to first pass my short video course at
http://sellslikehotcakes.co that will teach you everything you need to know
from a to z.

So what tools we will need.
1. account at shopify which is a biggest ecommerce platform
2. a domain which you can buy at namecheap and then connect directly to shopify
3. fiverr account which is a biggest marketplace of freelancers that
will help you customise the store and do the designs
4. and finally instagram and facebook ads account to drive traffic
5. and of course i would suggest to get sellslikehotcakes.co account as
well so you can be using the research tools that we developed to help
you find the products

Now lets go through the store i created showing you first major
elements that you need and what to pay attention too.

Next you need to choose the products to sell and the niche. I would
not recommend trying to copy me because surfing is way too small of a
niche. To choose the niche for you and find the idea you can use several tools.

Passionate niches tool
niche finder and google trends
aliexpress top sellers
junglescout

After you chose the product you need to choose the way to sell, there are 3 ways
1. Dropshipping – basically the customer is placing an order and you
go re-order it from the supplier on aliexpress
2. Print on demand – the one that i use in my store using teescape app
3. Amazon FBA or your own fullfillment. When you go big its the best way

Creating a product is what we are going to discuss next. There are several ways:
Sourcing
whitelabelling
create your own designs – fiverr

Now lets quickly go through my store and the design and apps that I am using.
I am showing you all the apps I use and how they help me with the conversions

Finally getting traffic. There are several ways to get traffic:
facebook ads (Directly or via agencies like Vantage app)
retargeting ads (Retarget app)
instagram and youtube influencers (directly or via famebit)

Here is a sample email to instagram Influencers
I’m Mike from Pug Lovers Club… maybe you heard of me from
my youtube channel where I review different pug products.
I’ve been following you for a while and was wondering if you’d be
interested in doing a sponsored post about my new pug dress / Frisbee?
If you’re interested, we can send you free sample for review/unboxing,
and can discuss
further compensation!

Good luck!

P.S. If you have never done any ecommerce
before, then the best is to first pass my short video course at

from a to z.

And don't put all eggs in one basket. Launch several products (ideally related) to build a brand quickly + Build your LIST!

I think we replied that before.. Please use SEARCH first! Use the dropshipper's return policy.? You can use mail forwarding (virtual office) address for package forwarding..

DHL Express for all international shipments. IT's 20% more expensive than USPS but it will provide international tracking and it's much faster as well. For example $30 for 16 ounces (500 gram) in DHL to Australia.. (discounted rate) get account with them!

I was on shopify then left over grey areas of card merchants not wanting to support product. Months later I came back and then left after 10 days due to lack of available products in my niche. Aliexpress vendors using misleading titles or description don't help. I then tried an app to upload Amazon products as an affiliate and do a review site, but it looks gawdy compared to shopify, and I will never make money like that. Therefore, I am convinced that shopify is way better. I'll just have to find a different niche that Aliexpress or a US dropshipper can fulfill!

I think the niche finder tool and the "Most passionate niches" report will help you find the product http://sellslikehotcakes.co/niches.php Good luck, keep us posted on your progress.

Shopify supports Stripe and Paypal, no grey areas there, very easy these days. Try to attach them both!

Btw great idea for you: customized license plate... build shopify store, then source from sites like buildasign.com Then promote via Facebook ads. Like PUGS licence plate for pug owners etc
