Don’t Put off Opening Up Your Own Shopify Shop

I know it can be a bit scary to actually take the step to set up that online shop you’ve been thinking about for a long time. I held onto that thought during all of 2014 and never acted on it. When 2015 rolled around I was determined to set up my Shopify shop before summer started. Yes, it was a bit daunting at first especially because I kept going about doing things with an “etsy” mind set. 

A new series on Shopify Tips to help you get past the fear of taking the first step to opening your shop

I remember the night about 3 weeks ago when I opened a chat with a customer service “guru”. I’ve always put backl inks in my Etsy shop listings and was wondering how I could do that in my Shopify shop. I was totally blown away at how easy it is!!

When I have a question I’ve never waited more than a couple of minutes on the chat line and their answers are always on the money. I really appreciate getting my questions answered so quickly!!

So here’s the thing…..I know that taking the first step is the hardest. Staying in your comfort zone, even if you aren’t getting the results you want, is the easy answer. It takes hard work and a lot of brain energy to make decisions and get it done.

I’m starting a new training series here on my blog to walk your through all the things that I have learned about setting up a Shopify shop. My hope is that it will take some of the fear out of taking the first step toward your dreams and goals of having your own website.

Some of the great things about opening a Shopify shop is that they offer you a 2 week trial period for FREE. After that you can choose a plan for as little as $29 a month. If you are ready to get started and have things going for the holiday shopping season I’d appreciate it if you’d use my affiliate link to sign up.

One of the first things I was overwhelmed with was choosing a template. I didn’t know where to begin. Shopify has so many great choices and I had a hard time narrowing it down. So how did I choose? I started looking at other Shopify shops and seeing what templates were appealing to me. It was a process of elimination that turned out to be a pretty easy choice after all. The beauty of it is that you aren’t stuck with your choice forever. If you want to change it later you can.

I am looking forward to sharing lots more with you in my SHOPIFY TIPS series in the coming weeks. In the meantime…...use this link to get signed up and get yourself one step closer to your dream!!

I’d love to hear from you!! Share your questions about Shopify. What are those nagging questions that are holding you back from getting started? Or, if you have opened your Shopify shop already, what questions are still hanging around in your head?
