Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm glad to hear you're interested in opening an online shop and would be happy to provide some guidance on getting started.
To provide some context, Shopify is an e-commerce platform merchants use to sell both online and in-person. We have a great FAQ Page you can check out for a complete breakdown of the platform, how it works, pricing, etc.
If you have not already, please feel free to sign up for our Trial Period to begin testing out the platform to ensure it works for your business needs. I also encourage you to check out our Starting An Online Store Guide for step-by-step instructions on how to build your online shop.
Do you however, have any ideas on what you'd like to start selling just yet?
Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns and I look forward to hearing from you!
Congratulations on starting an e-commerce business. According to your description, assuming you have already done the website, and based on our experience in serving thousands of customers, I think you have two important things to do.
upload your product
If you already have a product, you need to take a photo, make a promotional image, and upload it to your store. You also need to determine the name of the product to ensure that the product can find you in Google's search and help you get more traffic. If you have no products yourself, you need to install some drop shipping plugins to enrich the content of your website and help you sell your products.
sell your product
To sell products, you need to solve your traffic and conversion problems. Traffic can be brought out from platforms such as communities, forums, and blogs to link your store, and let users know that you have such a product. Secondly, you can consider the issue of advertising, such as: Google, Facebook, etc., to increase the number of website views. After you have traffic, consider the conversion of traffic. You can use the combination of pop-up windows + coupons to increase the probability of users leaving emails, and then use email marketing to increase the conversion rate of users. By uploading products, introducing traffic and using third-party automated marketing tools, you can sell your products and increase the sales of your store.
