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.

That's not an issue as long as you don't sell on amazon or ebay and only use this method on your OWN site (shopify store). So you customer cant ruin your acc feedback with negative reviews on slow delivery time.
For amazon you should only use domestic dropshippers to avoid long waiting time.
One more tip - call the shipping "FREE". when something is free people tend to complain less. Okay it's slow but i got it for free so i will wait.

Use the best selling products of your website of course. You can also do the seasonal offers there (like Halloween, Christmas etc)

Thank you Ted. I feel silly asking newbie questions, but it's the only way I'll get over the hump of launching my first store.
