How can I set up analytics and marketing for my online store?

Okay, so I somewhat got my shop up and running on Shopify, but when it comes to setting up the analytics and marketing stuff I am utterly clueless. I go into the section of the site that is supposed to be for setting up my marketing but I feel like it was designed for people who already know what they are doing. I am completely lost. Currently my shop is getting about one or two visits a week and for the most part is completely pointless.

 

Is there a service out there somewhere that can set everything up when it comes to google search, marketing, etc???

Hi, @HNWoodworks!

Thanks for reaching out and congratulations on starting your Shopify store! I am happy to point you in the right direction. 

 

I completely understand your concern with having very few store sessions a week. This can be quite common at first as it may take a while for you to create and action your marketing plan. While we have many guides that can help you with this, you can contact Shopify Experts if you are not comfortable optimizing your marketing needs. This is a marketplace that connects you to professionals in a variety of fields related to your e-commerce business. Doing so will allow you to outline your exact requirements and specifications to promote your store. If you would like to know more about finding the right Expert, please click here.

 

If you would like to dig into this topic further, I'd definitely suggest taking a few courses from Shopify Learn. This is a free learning platform that many merchants use to level up their business. We have a variety of marketing courses that are meant for entry level learners. We also have many articles that cover a wide variety of topics like How to Build a Marketing Plan That Actually Works and 11 Best Marketing Strategies Any Small Business Can Execute.

 

Feel free to check out these resources and follow up with your ideal marketing plan. Are you looking to leverage social media ads to promote your business?

Well, although I appreciate the response, it really didn't answer any of my question. I don't think I would be able to learn any of what you just suggested easily myself and certainly not in a reasonably short time frame. I would like to get my shop off the ground sooner rather than later and don't really have weeks or months to learn all there is to know about analytics, etc. I am trying to find someone to do that for me, not teach me how to do it myself.

@HNWoodworks about setting up the Google Analytics and Google Search Console isn't a job to do. 

I mean, this is a very basic job, which you can also perform or you can hire someone to do this. 

When It comes to doing Marketing for your store, then you will need to hire some expert who can give you a complete guide about How actually marketing is doing on Shopify stores? Which factors are important? Who can give you a complete Guide and Service?
