Hey there, @Blesser!

 

Welcome to Shopify! I understand that creating your very first Shopify store is a lot of work. I will be giving you some insights on how to create a successful store.

 

First off, you will need to understand and have a game plan on how you will run your online business. These are the most basic questions that you will need to analyze:

  1. What kind of products are you going to sell and introduce to your customers?
  2. Who is your target audience or customers?

The very first step in building a successful store is to know your target market.

 

Secondly, you will need to have a well-designed and user-friendly store to attract customers. It does not need to look extravagant, but more likely, it should be a store that scream "legit" and easy to navigate.

 

Next, is your marketing strategy. You will need to introduce your store to the world! as store traffic is very important to your website because that is where the conversion of store traffic or viewers to sales or potential customers is coming from. There are a lot of marketing strategies that you can try. Such as:

  1. Email marketing
  2. Media marketing, such as using Tiktok, Facebook, or Instagram
  3. Advertising

Lastly, do not forget to engage with your customers because, building trust with them is a must, as they can be your loyal customers and will also convince them to hit the buy button. You can do this by:

  1. Creating a "contact us" form or menu
  2. Having customer support
  3. Engage with them through social media, such bydoing live selling

Building a successful store will take time and effort, and with the right guidance, strategies, and mindset, you will achieve your goal. Also, do not forget that hard work always pays off.
