I started a shopify store about 7 months ago and I see a lot of people asking for guidance so I wanted to share my story.
The beginning likely starts the same for all shopifers, researching, editing, asking for feedback and a little praying. Maybe similar to most of you I didn't want to get help, I wanted to do it all on my own, I'm one of those stubborn guys. I was doing okay by myself, getting a few sales a week, enough to pay for the website and pocket the leftover. This was a good feeling for a few months, seeing sales come through but obviously I wanted more. So I gave in, I reached out to a local marketing firm who said they had experience in e-commerce and specifically Shopify stores. The owner met with me and went over the plan, which sounded a lot like what I was already doing, promote on social media, email campaigns, Facebook ads, but I still gave them a shot. Since then my sales have sky rocketed, my followers and engagement online has increased. I'm not writing this because they paid me to or gave me a discount or anything like that, just because I'm genuinely grateful for them and want to provide direction to fellow entrepreneurs. The company website is mad-money-media.com, if you want to check them out, they have been a life saver to me. And of course if you want to check out my site or have any recommendations it's swagforthelow.com
