I am starting a brand new endeavor, with a brand new product. I have my own website, and also plan on selling from social media platforms. Will Shopify be a good option for me. Thank you!

Hey, @Joyfuljigsaw777!

 

How exciting to hear!

 

I believe Shopify would be an awesome choice for you! Can you tell me what you're going to be selling, and what is your plan? 

 

The first thing I would recommend doing is signing up for a free trial here, this allows you to get a feel for how the platform works and if it is a right fit for you.

 

In regard to social selling, we do have a tool called Linkpop. Linkpop is our free tool that enables you to create a shoppable landing page accessible through social media apps. With Linkpop, your customers can easily navigate through your various social media profiles, access shared links, and make purchases using shoppable links.

 

By utilizing Linkpop, you can create a customized landing page that showcases links to your different social media pages, online store, web-based documents, and media content like videos or music playlists. This allows for a seamless and convenient browsing experience for your customers and enhancing engagement. You can learn more about Linkpop here at this page.

 

We actually have a super helpful blog here which walks you through everything from designing your store to marketing your products to help get you started!

 

Looking forward to your response!

Hi, I will be selling Jigsaw Puzzles, our own brand, created by my little team here.
What is a shoppable landing page? 
Thank you Maz!

Hey, @Joyfuljigsaw777!

Thanks for your response.

 

Did you manage to get time to read through the link I shared above about how Linkpop works? What were your thoughts?

 

A shoppable landing page is a web page designed to showcase products or services in a visually appealing and interactive way, with the primary goal of driving conversions and sales. It allows visitors to browse and purchase products directly from the landing page itself, without the need to navigate to a separate online store or product listing.

 

This page can be linked to anywhere, but they’re typically linked to via the user’s social media profile in the bio for example on Instagram. You do not need to have a Shopify store to create a Linkpop page, but you won’t be able to use the commerce features of the products—unless you create one or link your existing store to your Linkpop page.

 

You can also see a breakdown of all the subscription plans here at this link. If you weren’t sure about which plan is best for your business, there is a layout here of the different features of each plan at this page.

 

Your business idea sounds awesome, and I'm super excited for you! Are you currently with another platform or just scoping out some information right now? You might find this blog helpful on how to start a business like yours! If you have additional questions let me know, happy to chat further!

Hi Maz, thank you so much for taking the time to share all that info with me. 🙏🏽

I currently do not have an official platform. I did build a website, and it’s up and running, but I don’t have e-commerce set up, and really haven’t begun to push my line of puzzles, only because I have just 5 puzzles complete.

I can start with just 5 puzzles, and it will give me an idea of how well they are accepted and sell. I have a manufacturer, and so they’re ready to go anytime. I also just finished my box designs for each puzzle. Oh, and I’m also applying for a trademark and going to also do brand registry.
Here is the link to my website if you’d like to take a peek!

Thank you again Maz. I hope to stay in touch. Take care.
