How To Customize WordPress Faster & Eliminate Frustration At The Same Time

How To Customize WordPress Faster & Eliminate Frustration At The Same Time


If you want to speed up the time it takes
to get your website just right and find the exact settings that you want to change and
also reduce frustration at the same time then this video is for you hi my name is Adam from
WPCrafter.com where make WordPress tutorial videos for non-techies if your new year consider
clicking on the subscribe button if you don’t want to miss a thing click on the notification
bell we are talking about getting your website exactly how you want it were talking about
the customizer in finding those little changes you know I gotta say for me whenever I’m trying
a new theme or even in a theme that I use for everything it could be a little frustrating
sometimes just going through the different levels and layers of menus in the customizer
I do think it’s out of hand and I do think that not everything developer does a great
job of organizing the options in a logical way and even the ones that do a great job
and it is still a little frustrating sometimes to find exactly what you want to change in
your WordPress-based website and that’s where this plug in that I may share with you in
this video comes into play I’m talking about this blog and right here it’s free it’s called
customizer searches in the WordPress directory you consult directly from your WordPress website
and what this plug-in does is one simple thing when you’re in the customizer of your website
is going to put a little search icon you can click on that and now you could just search
for the exact option that you want in the customizer for your theme and this can work
with all themes that have gone through the process of taking all the options and putting
them in the customizer really where they belong anyway so this is not going to be specific
to a particular theme it’s gonna work with just about any theme out there, show you how
neat this is and how logical it actually is right now so you just go in your WordPress
website go to plug-ins add new and do a search for the words customize their search and it’s
going to go ahead and be probably the first result right here I’ve already installed and
activated it so let’s go ahead and take a look at how this actually works so it doesn’t
add anything to the backing of your website it doesn’t slow anything down I know we all
should be very conscientious of that this is all it does when you go new appearance
and then customizers in our jump in into the customizer of this website it does one simple
thing can you spot it probably not because I did it at first it adds this little search
icon right here and when you click on it it reveals this tidy little search box that you
can now search for settings in your customizer so just to give it a shot him to go ahead
and enter the word footer and here it produce a list of options related to the foot or so
any of these so Sam wanted to change the color of the text in the footer all I have to do
is click right here but you can scroll down and hears all of the options related to the
footer so go ahead and click on text color boom and jumps me right on into that that
series of options to do that in the customize I didn’t have to jump back and forth is just
one click and I’m right on in there so now let me back out again and get back to the
search now one of the things I like about this and this is just the problem was searching
for anything in general we have the language we use the search the words that we use the
search and then there’s probably the the correct terminology while this plug-in it solves that
problem let me demonstrate it for you so Sam wanted to change the size of a headline now
I might use the word headline but for themes that’s typically going to be the word heading
not headline so let me say what happens when I do a search for the word headline so there
I have the word headline and see what it’s doing it’s taking what I put in headline and
it’s kinda bridging the gap between the language that I use and then the proper terminology
she can see it it starts shaving off the letters until it can find something related to what
I’m searching for she can see right here it’s showing me the options for headings even though
I’m not searching for head the word headings I’m searching for the word headline and that’s
what I love about this because normal English is headline it’s not heading or if you’re
new or not so experienced with WordPress and all this kind of website terminology you’re
using what makes sense to you it can bridge the gap and the best thing is you don’t need
your theme developer to do anything special this plug-in does it all in a work with any
team that has options in the customizer I hope you could see that man this is going
to be pretty much a huge massive timesaver I wouldn’t be surprised if this is one of
those plug-ins that all theme developers start recommending for their users because it’s
going to reduce the frustration in that time wasted finding the exact options that you
want in this kind of menu system of the customizer that really needs to be improved upon anyway
and have a better focus on usability is not super usable right now it’s better than a
backend settings panel but now when you marry it with this customizer search plug-in that’s
totally free now you can really start making changes lightning quick this is one of those
plug-ins that should be in the core of WordPress and who knows maybe it might be one day hey
thanks for watching if you enjoy the content in this video give it a thumbs up and maybe

They have them in bracelets a lot of weirdos wear ’em. So if you get– – Woah! Woah! (Amber laughs) – Talking about–
– It’s a safe space – No, no, no. I’m saying
the people that wear them don’t camp. Usually they’re just like “I always have my paracord
ready just in case”. – What is a paracord?
– Yeah. – I have no frigging idea. – Okay so
– Okay! (Contestants Laughing) – Don’t feel like I’m attacking you. You don’t even know what a paracord is. – Let’s just say that I really
– No, no, no, no! – Hope that you would know
what you do as a side hustle. – Maybe it was a– – And it’s not Mens
Luxury Underwear Designer cause you made us touch it. – So this is your final choice? – That’s our final answer
– Final answer! – Yes!
– Yes. Final choice. – Final answer. – Alrighty then. – Open the hatch– – Let’s see how smart
you guys are or aren’t. (metal door rolling) (contestants celebrating) – Yeah! We won. Yes. – Hi five, hun. There we go. – Ouch! My finger! – Oh! – Time to get some Grappz. – Oh yes! – Alright guys, great work
guessing my side hustle. This is my company, my baby, my passion. It’s called Grappz. This is a product I invented on my own. We are currently patent pending. This is a finger protection
device via compression glove. I busted my fingers so many
times and had to tape ’em and it just wasn’t cutting it. So when I tore my ACL, had
so much time that I was able to just bring this idea to fruition. Kurt Angle, Olympic
Gold Medalist, Wrestler, was a buddy of mine cause
we did a film together. Sent him the pair, and
he’s like, “I love this,” “I wanna be involved.” So he got involved, he’s part owner and he is now my endorser, he wears them in the WWE, I’m very proud of that. We have three different
variations, check it out. Check these out. This is the guy who it’s gonna work for. You were a Rugby player.
So now think about pushing, pulling, pushing,
pulling, pushing, pulling. It’s meant for all athletes
that injure their fingers. Basketball, Football, anything
that a ball would come to. Dodgeball, Rugby. But it’s meant for grapplers. Obviously the name is Grappz. Kinda like Boxers wear
wraps, Grapplers wear Grappz. – What do you love most about
the product and doing this? – I love when I get
messages from customers literally all over the
world, in different sports that I didn’t intend to saying thank you so much
for inventing these. I’ve been looking for something
like this for a long time. (upbeat music) – I thought it was pretty easy, I have a pretty good team with me so I felt like we worked
together pretty well and we were able to narrow it down. – I don’t meet a lot of people
who are starting a business from scratch so I think it was really cool and fun to figure it out. – I liked touching the stuff
and not knowing what it is. I don’t like that, I don’t wanna touch it. I was ready for a scary animal. I knew it wouldn’t be but it was fun. – Guys, thank you so much.
– Yeah. Thank you. I’m really proud of this
– Thank you. Thank you. – Keep an eye on us. Thanks for playing Guess My Hustle. Check out more episodes right here. Piece of advice I’d
give to someone starting their own side hustle, is resilience. You gotta keep going, if
you really believe in it and really passionate about
it. You gotta be malleable. You gotta take the blows and move forward.

How To Create A Mastermind Group: My Step By Step Blueprint | FHTV Ep. 109

How To Create A Mastermind Group: My Step By Step Blueprint | FHTV Ep. 109


– All the most successful
groups of people throughout time have had a mastermind group. Think about king
Arthur and the knights of the round table. You think about my
group of people. The funnel hackers,
like the illuminati. That’s actually
probably a bad example, but all of us have a
(mumbles) group of people where we get together and
we share ideas, thoughts, passions to be able to get
something even more successful than where we are today. If you think about
it, they always say that you are the average of
your five closest friends in terms of how
much money you make, how successful you are,
the things, the vision, everything you’re
doing is all based on the people you’re
surrounding yourself with, and the right mastermind
group can elevate you to the next level. (intense music) So why should you
have mastermind group? If you do have one, how
do you actually run it? Well with my mastermind group, the way it works, we get
together twice a year and it gives the chance to
hold each other accountable. Every time before the
next meeting happens, everybody’s so excited
to get stuff done they promised
they’d do last time ’cause they don’t
wanna disappoint the
rest of the group. Number two, it gives
you foresight and vision what to do next. It’s kinda like Wayne Gretzky. He said that the reason
why he was so good is not because he knew
how to find the goal, it’s ’cause he knew
where the puck was going, because he knew
where it was going, he was able to get there
before everybody else, and the same thing true
in the mastermind group. You figure out the
vision where you’re all going collectively, and you get there
before everybody else. Other amazing benefits
are you get some amazing collaborations. Your best partners are
typically inside of your mastermind groups. One of my favorite
things is it’s actually the best way to learn. It’s way better than our
traditional education system. Here I’m learning from
people who are in the weeds doing it every single day as opposed to people that read
theory about it in a book. And now I wanna tell you
about how I created mine so that you get some insights
to how you can create yours as well. (intense music) First things you
gotta think about as you’re deciding
to do your mastermind is what’s the topic? Every mastermind is
themed around a topic. Some around business
building, some around fitness, some around financial planning. Whatever your market it, you gotta find that group
of people to be interested. The second phase is then
figuring out who are the right people in the room. Who could actually
complement each other? Who’s ideas, if
they were shared, would actually help
the group grow together as opposed to competing and
kinda tearing the group down, and really figuring out what’s
your space in this ecosystem? Why is your mastermind
different or unique from anybody else’s? Why would some come
all the way to you, to Boise, Idaho, or
wherever you live, to be a part of your
mastermind group? What is it that
makes your special? Mine’s called the inner circle and what makes ours
special is we’re the only mastermind group that
specialized in sales funnels and using sales funnels
to grow your companies. That niche inside of
all business buildings is what makes ours unique
and makes ours different. You gotta figure out
for yourself what
makes yours different and that’s what’s gonna
get the right people to come to you and be
attracted into your group. Another example, my friend Stu, he’s got a huge mastermind
group teaching people how to run membership sites. Another one is Rhonda Swan. She lives all the
way out in Bali, and she helps people
to do branding, but also it’s a
niche inside that where people actually
wanna travel as well. So they’re traveling to Bali,
they’re talking about travel, so it’s taking the
people who want branding, people who want travel, and that cross
section is what makes her mastermind magic. It doesn’t matter
what market you’re in, as long as you pick a market and find people
inside that market who are interested
in your topic, and bring those people together and collectively you
all grow together. (intense music) All right, now one of
the most important things when you’re building
your mastermind is how you get the groups. The first thing is
you have to run people through an application. If you let everybody in, you have no idea what
kind of crazy people can get into your room and
destroy the whole group from the inside out. – All I’m–
– Shh! – They’re gonna get–
– Shh! – I–
– Shh! – I’m just–
– Shh! Knock, knock.
– Who’s there? – Shh! – So we always have to have
an application processes to get somebody in, to
make sure the right fit for the group you’re
trying to build. Number two is when
somebody’s in there, you have to be protective
of your family, of the group you are building. Multiple times I’ve
had to kick people out because they weren’t
willing to share or they were takers and not
serving the group as a whole. You have to be willing
and okay with actually kicking people out and
giving them their money back. And number three
is you have to cap how many people are
inside of the group. As it started to grow, I decided I was gonna
cap it off at 100 people. Which was the smartest thing
I did. Two things happened. Number one, is it
kept people in. People didn’t leave because
the group was finite, and they didn’t want
to lose their spot. We call it inner
circle for life. If they leave, they
can never come back in. once somebody is in, they’re in, and the second thing
is that as soon as the spots are filled up, and no matter what happens,
we do not sell more than our 100 spots. At that point, the
group is locked out and that way it keeps
the family atmosphere because everybody keeps
re-upping year in and year out, that family gets
tighter and tighter, and everybody
collectively as a whole, all their companies, all their
businesses all grow together, and you see a bigger
impact amongst the people you’re serving when you cap
it and keep everybody within, as opposed to having a
mastermind where new people are coming in and out
every single week, every single month,
and every single year. (calming music) So after you got your group
and people are signed up for it and you’re gonna do it, then the next question
is where do you do it? Do you do it virtually,
do you do it online, or do you actually go somewhere
to a physical location? I’m a big believer that
there’s some magic that happens when people are
together in a room that you kinda miss
when you’re just online. So I’m a big believer in
getting people into the room. There’s two kind of
places you can go. Some people like me, who’d
like to stay close to home can do it in their hometown, or the other idea, which a
lot of people do as well, is find a destination location. Go somewhere where people
wanna go on vacation anyway, do the mastermind group, and
then have a extended vacation right either before or after
the mastermind as well. Which is a good way to get
people to want to go there, because not only are they
going for your meeting, they’re going for
their vacation as well. When people come in the
room the very first time, we try not to just allow
them to sit anywhere, ’cause they do that, they
go sit by their friends and by the different
relationships they already have, and when you’re
super comfortable, it’s hard to be vulnerable, so what we do is we
actually set the room and we move around the seats so you’re not sitting
next to the people you’re super comfortable with, you sit next to
people who are new so you can get to know them. You can talk about them, and it’s the easiest way to
start opening yourself up. And each time you come back in, all the seats are
mixed up again. So you’re never sitting
two days in a row next to the same person, and that way you get
different perspectives and different insights
than you would by hanging out with the
same friends you know every single time. (calming music) When they first come
through the door, one of the things we give
them besides the swag that we have them put
on, is a notebook, and it’s always a new
notebook, it’s completely blank from the very beginning, and the reason why we did
that is after the first two or three years of
giving out notebooks, we had one of our members,
his name’s Jamie Amus, he came on stage and he
held up three or four of his notebooks he had and he said, I’ve been in
the mastermind group now for two years. I’ve been through four meetings, and he said, every
one of these notebooks I fill full of notes when
I’m sitting in the room. He said, as I’ve gone home, every one of these
has made me at least an extra million dollars. He says there’s four million
dollars of value right here in this hand, and he
said I’m back excited to start filling up
book number five. And ever since then,
we’ve always had a brand new clean, clear
notebook for everyone as soon as they
come to the door, because their next million
idea is about to be put into that thing, and if they get it,
they can take it home and they can execute on it. (intense music) First it started
really, really small, and I didn’t really
know what I was doing, and if I’m completely honest, at first it was kind of boring. But what I wanted to
talk about tonight is kind of a broad
overview of the whole internet marketing business. And then I realized
one of the secrets. Is if you run a mastermind group the way you run school,
the way you run college, what happens is
everybody falls asleep. (grunting) And so we decided, okay we
have to keep the energy up really, really high
if we’re gonna have a successful experience, and people are gonna get
the most out of it possible. So they come in the
door, immediately
they always get swag. When they come into the room,
we have to have an ambiance, and a feel that feels
a little bit different, ’cause we want this
to be a marketing raid where people are learning,
they’re enjoying it, but they’re not
gonna fall asleep, so that’s why we’re
consistently pumping oxygen into the room to make sure
everybody stays awake. That’s not actually
true, we don’t do that, but that’d be awesome. (laughing) Between every single break, people don’t sit, everybody
stands up and they walk and they move. Momentum will move you forward, momentum keeps your brain
working and functioning at the highest level. If I’m gonna keep your
energy high for two days, it can’t be like school. It has to be a different,
unique experience. It has to be more like a
club than your homeroom. Then the second layer is sound. If it’s super quiet, it
keeps the energy low. We gotta keep the energy high. Again, just like
you’re in a dance club. So we have a DJ, next you have to
have a whiteboard. Not any kind of whiteboard. It’s gotta be a big
whiteboard with big markers so as you’re doodling fast, people can see everything from the very back of the room. There’s nothing worse
than mic runners and everybody’s waiting,
it slows the energy down. So we have the mics
that you can actually throw across the room. Keep the energy high, so the second someone’s
got a question, you can address it, they
can ask the question, throw it back. We keep the motion and keep
the momentum moving forward the whole time. Then we have all of
the energy drinks. These are essential,
’cause most entrepreneurs have ADD, and we’re not used
to sitting in a classroom behind a desk. In fact, most of us struggled
or we failed out of school. When we’re siting in a desk,
it kinda stresses us out, so we allow people
to stand up to move. We let them drink energy drinks, ’cause we want nobody
dozing off, feeling tired. We wanna keep the energy
level high the entire time. We also have energy gum. The stuff came
from the military. If you chew that, then you
will never fall asleep. The next step, we
always bring food in. The food is very paleo. Lots of meats, lots of
vegetables to make sure that nobody slows down
both mentally or physically as we’re going
throughout the day. (intense music) I’m gonna walk you through
how we run our day here. When the meeting first begins, I usually get up at
the very beginning and kinda go through
some of the ground rules and how the whole
game’s gonna be played, because a lot of times
there’s new people coming in so I explain how it’s gonna work and kinda set the
tone for the day. Welcome to inner
circle, everybody. (cheering) So excited to have
you guys here today. Immediately after
that, then I transition into the biggest
takeaways that I’ve gotten since the last six
months I’ve been here. As a facilitator, I wanna
make sure that I’m always bringing the best, the
newest, the coolest stuff to share with them. The stuff they wouldn’t
see anywhere else. They’re not gonna see
it in a product course or online anywhere else. Just the stuff that we’re
seeing behind the scenes, and I just open up the curtains. I give them everything
that we’re doing. So see exactly what we’re doing so they can then
take those things and implement them
back in their business. To be the first isn’t the key, but it’s understanding
how to actually design and execute on a category, and when you do that, and you become
the category king, then it’s almost impossible
to beat you, right? Then we break down and
we have each person gets a chance to get up on stage and talk about their business. So the way it begins
is I grab the mic box and I scream their name
at the top of the lungs, everybody stand up and give
them a huge round of applause so we can set the tone
and the energy right. We then have their
song start playing as they walk up on stage. Together for Mr.
James P (mumbles) (applause) Yeah. They’re given 30 times of
time to go on and present to the audience. The first 10 to 15 minutes, they have a chance
to share their story, and to give anything
that they’ve got, that they’ve learned
inside their business, any of the big takeaways,
the big ah-ha’s, the things that are
working the best for them. They just give
those to the group, and one of the biggest
rules is you always provide value first before you ever
ask for value back in exchange. So after they provide as
much value as they can to the group, then the last
15 minutes they transition, and this is where they can
ask the group for help. Here’s the things
they’re working on, thing they’re stuck, things
they’re not sure about, things that they’re
thinking about doing, they want feedback
from the group before they actually do that. But we don’t hold things back. We tell them exactly what, not what they wanna hear
but what they need to hear. We give them actual
proof of validation of hey we tried this in my
business and it didn’t work. We saw it over her
and it didn’t work. Instead you should
be doing this. Sometimes it’s brutal,
sometimes peoples’ dreams, and visions, and plans
we kinda destroy them, but afterwards we
build them back up and give them the
foundation they need to actually move forward, so that way when
they go back home and they start running, they’re
running the right direction. There’s nothing
worse than running and doing everything right but you’re running in
the wrong direction. We course correct, we get
them on the right path, and make sure they’re running
towards the right target. When they do that, they get to where they’re
trying to get to a lot faster, and that’s the goal
of the mastermind. After you get off stage,
then I grab the mic and I yell back, all
right everyone stand up and you’re gonna walk and talk and share with the rest of
the group the biggest takeaway you got from that
person’s presentation. And everyone has a chance
to then grab a new partner, walk around the room,
and share the biggest ah-ha that they got from
that person’s presentation. One of the amazing
byproducts of the mastermind that you don’t plan
on when you show up that happens every single time is that you think you’re
gonna get the most value when you’re on stage, but typically what happens is
while you’re paying attention to serving that person,
that’s when you get the biggest ah-ha’s for
your own personal business. So as you’re listening
with those ears, listening for the ah-ha’s
coming back down to you, and you grab those things, and
as you’re walking, talking, you share them with the
partner next to you, ’cause when you share
them, it solidifies them, it cements them into your mind and it actually gives
you something you can use when you go back home. As we walk around the room, we walk and talk, we
keep the energy high while we’re switching
up and getting the next person prepared for
their chance to be on stage. When it’s all over,
the last thing we do at the end of day number two is I allow every single
person in the room to share the biggest
takeaway they got. The biggest problems you have when it comes to
something like this, is you got a notepad full of
thousands of different ideas. Which one are you gonna
actually execute on? I have everyone
spend a few minutes and look at everything and see
what’s the biggest takeaway. If you were to take just
one idea, one thought, one impression from
the last two days, what would be the
thing you’d implement that’d have the biggest
impact on your life and on your business? Then we let everyone
go around the room and share their
biggest takeaway. What’s interesting is that all
of us sat in the same room, all of us heard the
same presentations, all of us saw and
experienced the same thing, but every single person’s
biggest takeaway is different. A lot of times they got
a different takeaway that I didn’t even
hear when I heard that exact same presentation. And it’s amazing
’cause I hear that, I’m like, oh my gosh
I totally missed that, and I’m able to get
the biggest ah-ha’s from each person in the group, and a lot of times
I end up rearranging my takeaways and my order of
priorities because of that, and that’s the best
way to kind of end the mastermind group because it gives you a chance to get a different perspective on what was the most impactful
from the entire experience, and then after the mastermind
is over each night, and throughout the
weekend afterwards, we have what we
call the aftermind. Which is where
everyone gets together, they network, and they
keep the party happening, they keep the energy,
they keep networking even into the night to help build the
relationships even stronger, to help them to
understand each other, help each other more, and
we keep that happening all throughout the night
during the aftermind. (intense music) They say that
entrepreneurship is the most lonely job in the
world, and it is. You’re sitting there on your
computer with your mind, and a lot of the times,
the people around you don’t know what
you’re going through, they don’t understand
what you’re going through. Even if it’s your
wife, your family. They love you, but they
don’t understand it. I’ve watched over the
last five or six years I’ve been running
this inner circle, people who didn’t have
anything came into this program and watched as they grew
from the seed of an idea inside their mind
to companies that do millions of dollars
a year in sales, and it’s been interesting to see as this group, they went
from being colleagues and acquaintances, to
friends, to now family. And we look at it
from the outside, it may seem kinda simple. It’s not a super
complicated process, but what happens
inside of these walls, it changes peoples’ lives. When someone is there with
you during your down times, when they experience the
pain of your sacrifice, they celebrate the wins
with you 10 times more than anybody else, and
that’s the power of having a family mastermind
group like this. So if you don’t have a
mastermind group yet, go and find one,
find your tribe, find your group of people
you can connect with, you can grow with, you
can serve together, and if for some reason
there’s not a mastermind group in whatever marker you’re in, then now you have my permission,
you have the tools now to go and start your own. So that means get
your energy drinks, get your disco lights, get
your swag, get your notebooks, get your tribe, your
people together, and change the lives of the
people you’re gonna serve.

start watching that particular course it’s a great course I know you’ll enjoy
it now let’s talk about starting your
e-commerce business it’s hard to do it’s hard to do if you don’t have a blueprint
but I’m gonna give you one so let’s get going now before I give you my method of
doing this I want to hear your method did you try anything yet if so put your
comments below have you had some issues put your
comments below do you have some suggestions put your comments below I
want to hear from you okay let’s check this out now starting an e-commerce
business well it’s hard oh it’s hard to do that’s why I did this video to make
it easier for you there’s a lot of steps that have to
together and you got to do them in the right water or you’re all over the place
right we want to keep you organized number one choose a product yeah I mean
you gotta find something sell and that’s really not that hard to do nowadays but
it’s got to be the first step in your e-commerce journey because that products
gonna have to do with your knee should even sell to then your audience and you
know how you’re gonna ship it all those things combined so you got to pick a
product first yeah picking your product well this this often is the most
difficult thing in the world to do but what I would suggest is using some tools
and some of the tools you can use our you know search subjects that you like
look on the internet for things that interest you you can also use tools you
can use something like a Barolo and what an overload will do is it integrates
with Aliexpress and it will show you the top selling products and what’s doing
well and you know the number of those products that are sold in that’ll give
you some good ideas to the next thing you do after you’ve selected your
product you kind of got up to valuate your idea you got to say well this is my
product is it gonna sell in the market is there a demand for this product in
the market you want to do this step it’s super important because if there aren’t
enough people searching for that particular product or you need that
particular product and you’ll never be able to build your business around it
another cool way you can figure out if your products to sell or not is just
know to Google friends that’s trends not google.com when you go
there you can type in a particular subject you can type in a particular
product and you can actually see what the search trend is how many people are
searching for it is that trend going up or down there’s a staying flat it’s
going down you probably want to stay away from it because that’s not a good
product obviously if it’s going up then that could be a good product for you but
is it a trendy product because I know all
little gadgets that come out and you know they may be trending but they may
not be around very long either so you want to be really careful when stuff
like that and the next step is obtaining your product okay where are you gonna
get this product fun this is super important after you figure out your your
product and what you want to sell you gotta figure out a source to get that
product and in sourcing it should you make it should you manufacture it should
you buy wholesale should you dropship all of these things are super important
we have products that we dropship we have products that are digital products
that you know we don’t to worry about manufacturing or any of that because
I’ve already made the product and people just get access to it and then they have
physical products like my survival tube which is a big product okay and it needs
to be shipped out and you have to manufacture it and you have to ship it
there’s a lot of work to getting that product in the hands of the consumer but
you’ve got to consider all of these things when selecting your product now
once you’ve selected this product okay and you’ve done your research and you’re
prepared you’re now ready to actually write your business plan and you’re
ready to sit down and start the process now writing a business plan I know I
know you don’t want to do it it’s a pain in the butt but you got to do it you got
to do it because this is going to be your roadmap to growing the business and
if you write a good business plan and you go through all the steps you’re
gonna be much more likely to succeed than if you just wing it and you just do
things as they come up that’s a tough way to go about it the next thing is
naming your business now this is something that people spend way too much
time on it’s just not that important the name of your business doesn’t even have
to be the name of your website you know it could be junior official business you
know it could be a VC business that doesn’t matter really but you just have
to have a name for your business and you want to check with your local zoning in
your local business license regulations and you
to get that business up and running now the next thing that people do I ever
think is creating a logo a logo doesn’t matter that much I mean I see people
with misfit hours or weeks or months or years trying to figure out a logo people
don’t care as much about that logo as you think they do
as a matter of fact they tend to make them too complicated and the simpler the
better if you think of something like Nike okay you know what is their logo
it’s pretty easy or you know television stations ABC CBS NBC you know all of
these are really really simple logos and understand that that logo is just going
to be something off to the corner it’s not going to sell any products for you
or anything like that and you can have somebody quickly make a logo on Fiverr
or on upwork something like that you don’t have to give it all this
thought the next step is to understand search engine optimization I can’t
overemphasize this because when I started I had no clue what it was didn’t
know what it was this is the thing to get your company in front of people when
they type a search in that search bar when people search on Google they’re
gonna type in a term and that term is gonna be run for Google and Google is
gonna go out there and they’re gonna look for titles and descriptions that
have that term in it on a webpage so you want to make sure that you optimize
those titles and those descriptions on every single page in your site and I’ve
had people say well do I have to do SEO to every page or can I just do it to the
main pages I say just do it to the pages that you want to come up in the search
results because if you don’t do it on all the
pages all the pages won’t come up just the ones that you do it over so it takes
time and you don’t have to do it all in a day right you can do a little bit each
day you can optimize each page I just went through my J.R. Fisher comm
website recently and it took me about a couple months but each day I would grab
a couple pages and I would do the titles and the descriptions
put the tags and there do all that and you know over time I got it all done
again so this is something that’s gonna take time you need to do this because
that’s the only way you’re gonna come up any organic search results now there’s a
lot of ways to build your store you can do WordPress you can be Shopify I kind
of recommend using Kartra first because now Kartra is not a website builder per
se but you can build pages there and what you can do and this is the smartest
thing to do is find a product build a page runs in traffic to it to see if it
sells you don’t want to get a product and then get 20 other products similar
to it and build a big webpage and find out that none of them sell so what we do
in Kartra is we put a product in Clark Pro and we can build that sales page and
see if it sells if it doesn’t we try another product another product and once
we have one that sells then we can add related products and actually build a
web page but the best place to start that is in Kartra I’m gonna put a
link in the description below you can actually get a trial for $1 and Kartra
which is pretty good deal right and it’ll actually build your web pages
it’ll do your memberships it’ll be your emails it just all kinds of stuff if you
just click on that link down there there’s a video you can watch it’ll
explain all that to you if you like it which would be crazy not to like and
it’s so good you can get it for only $1 so I highly recommend that the next
thing you need to do is decide on your sales challenge what do I mean by sales
channel well these are just places you’re gonna sell your product you know
you can be maybe you’re just selling them on eBay maybe you don’t even have a
webpage maybe you want to make Kartra pages like what I just said and you want
to sell them there maybe you want to sell on Amazon maybe what a WordPress
website maybe you went shopping ah there’s a lot of opportunities out there
but what you want to do is just hone in on a couple of them and I really do
recommend I don’t want to I don’t want to beat a dead horse but I do recommend
Clark there because that’s an all-in-one platform and you can you know test your
products there and you could do your emails and you could build your sales
pages all in one place and that makes it so much easier because I know when I
started I had to buy all these different software’s and try to integrate them and
make it work and it just didn’t work as well and finally I mean it’s only been
out for years at the time I’ve done this video
but finally there’s a place where you could have all the software’s at one
place so that’s what I recommend ideally ideally you’d want to have Kartra but
you also want to have a web page you’d like to have your product to me but
you’d like to have them on the Amazon you’d like to have one Shopify but you
can’t do it all in the beginning but think of this one down the road don’t
just have a mirror focus onto one place to sell your products look at a whole
bunch of possibilities and that way you increase your sales now the next thing
you want to think about is preparing to launch and if you’ve got physical
products and you’re gonna have inventory you want to make sure you get your
shipping all set up you want to make sure you get your credit card processing
all set up all these things need to be done before you actually launch your
site I had a client the other day and she was really anxious to run Facebook
ads and I said great what are you gonna run Facebook ads to she hadn’t set up a
product that she actually wanted to run their Facebook ads to but she was all
hyped up on Facebook ads so make sure you have all these things in line think
of all the steps and obviously credit card processing is one of them and if
you have physical product shippings one of them
ideally in the beginning if you can do drop shipping it’s better you’re not
gonna make the margins you’d make if you ship them out of yourself however it’s a
lot of work to do so and if you don’t have that in place it’s a lot to take
one in the beginning now let’s talk about something real quick
this KPI these are your key performance indicators what is a KPI well a KPI is
what you expect to get so it may be if I have a thousand people visit my site I
expect to get thirty sales if I run an ad and I spend you know ten dollars I
would expect to have a customer that spends twenty dollars so decide what
these KPIs are now these can change okay you may have them incorrect in the
beginning you may not know what your profit
percentage is gonna be you may not know what your conversion rates gonna be you
may not know what your click-through rates gonna be but upfront understand
these indicators because you know I didn’t in the beginning I didn’t know
what a KPI bugs but in the beginning if you understand all these things you can
start checking them early and you can tweak them so that you get better
results on all these different areas now what is post-launch when you got all
this stuff set up here’s post-launch you need to get a
customer you need to sell something ok so we want to concentrate on selling
once we get the store set up we’ve got to get that first customer we got to
start getting data and we got to figure out how we’re gonna do that the next
thing we got to do we got a marketer store in our products and how you gonna
go about doing that I mean that’s super super important you know there’s
different ways to get traffic there’s you can buy traffic you can do social
media you can do emails and once again emails Kartra will do that for you so
you know you want to have maybe opt-in pages where people can opt-in and get
free downloads and Kartra can do that so you know I highly suggest you check it
out Kartra that links below there check that out I’m not beating a dead horse
and they didn’t pay me to do this video okay that is my affiliate link but they
didn’t pay me to do anything on this video I just really like that software
and I think it’ll help you out a lot and if you get it and you get good results
with it you’re gonna be happier with me and that’s what I want now if you’re
deciding to go the social media route wow there’s a lot of opportunities you
know you can do Facebook post you can do Facebook Ads
you can do Instagram post you can do Instagram ads you can do snapchat you
know you there’s a Soviet you can do YouTube stuff there’s so many social
media things out there right now you’ve got Twitter accounts that you can go for
try to pick the ones that you have used in the past and that you know the best
okay so I’m not an Instagram user I know it’s a great platform but I don’t try to
do anything on Instagram because it’s just not my thing I don’t do it
I understand Facebook I understand YouTube and I tend to lean towards those
areas there so in the beginning don’t try to hit every social media area
can get the ones that you’re currently using that you like because you’re gonna
be a lot more comfortable and you probably gonna be a lot more successful
with okay now that you’ve got those sales what you want to do is optimize
them now what do I mean by that you need to a be split test so maybe you have two
different sales pages that when somebody clicked half of them go to one page and
half go to the others now this sounds complicated but it’s really not because
all this is set up in Kartra and you could click and duplicate a page
instantly change the title change of video whatever you want
and you can do a/b testing this is really important because we want to get
the maximum results out of the people that go to those pages okay guys now
starting off your web page and getting your first sales that’s the beginning
that’s just the beginning you need to use analytics this is how you’re going
to make it in the e-commerce world you got to use analytics you can use Google
Analytics there’s other softwares out there you can get but the blueprint this
blueprint I’ve given you is just the beginning knowing what’s happening
afterwards is what’s important how many people are going to your site where are
these people coming from you know what sources are working best
for you that’s where the analytics come in that’s something you got to check
every single day especially if you’re running ads you know we run ads and we
wouldn’t go in there every day and see which audiences are working for us which
ones are not working which ones are costing us more which ones are getting
us clicks which winners are getting us sales because if you just let it go on
its own you won’t know it you won’t make the good right decisions now as you go
through this process understand that you don’t know a lot of things right now and
here’s the scary thing you don’t even know what you don’t know okay and that’s
how I was I didn’t know what I didn’t know and the way you find out more
things the way you learn more things so you get in there can you try new things
and as you try new things more and more things are gonna be uncovered I know
every day I see something new and I’m like oh my gosh I didn’t realize that or
I didn’t notice that and you could do little things like you can make a sales
page or you can make an upsell page and it can be wrong and you don’t know
what’s wrong because at the time you were focused on making that page my wife
and I looked at one of her pages the other night and it was an upsell and we
didn’t want them to know it was an upsell one of them to watch the video
but at the top of the page we had put the price for the upsell and as soon as
they got to the page they can see we were trying to sell something so that’s
not what we wanted we wanted them to watch the video and in the end of the
video that had a product that we could actually sell it so a lot of times
you’ll do these things and if you don’t analyze them and the analytics aren’t
just Google Analytics they’re your analytics in other words once you’ve
done something and it’s working or not working look at it and try to figure out
why something’s not working and your funnel if something’s not working in
your sales process don’t say well that thing doesn’t work because all things
work your thing doesn’t work you know there’s some tweak you need to make
maybe you need to change the title you need to change what you said you need to
change a color you need to change a price but all things were online you
could sell anything online but you’ve got to analyze and that’s not just like
I said Google Analytics or these software analytics through your
analytics you need to stop and look at things because they can’t measure that
all they do is measure what happened or what didn’t happen you have to look at
it and see what needs to be changed okay so I hope this blueprint helped you out
you’ve got all the steps now you can get going
but here’s the question of the day what have you already done what are you
working on okay what did you try that worked or didn’t work put all of that in

want to talk about three things that make this course really special number
one this course contains a ton of downloadable content keep an eye out for
spreadsheets templates and PDFs now I’ll always point these out on camera but
it’s really important that you catch these because this downloadable content
will save you a ton of time think of them as shortcuts that help you copy and
paste the stuff you need to build a store directly into the platform we’ll
use to build that store number two whenever I talk about a tool a link or a
blog post you can be sure to find that resource below the lesson I want to make

nothing that I use on camera that I don’t link to so that you can use it too
and number three and this is really special throughout this course you’ll
get insights from real successful online entrepreneurs these are people just like
you they started their first store with zero ecommerce experience now many of
them make over six figures in revenue and run their businesses full-time I’ve
personally met and interviewed all the entrepreneurs you’re going to meet in
this course they come from every corner of the globe and they include working
moms and college dropouts soft-spoken introverts and bubbly extroverts most of
them started out their business without much money or business experience but
all of them wanted it they all wanted a little extra money every month they
wanted to build something they could call their own
they wanted to prove to themselves that they could be their own boss there’s no
ingredient that those entrepreneurs have that you don’t have yourself you’ve got

How To Use Any WordPress Page Builder With Genesis Theme From Studiopress

How To Use Any WordPress Page Builder With Genesis Theme From Studiopress


Welcome back to another video my name is Adam
from WPCrafter.com were I make WordPress videos for non-techies and in this video I’m to show
you how to use any Genesis theme or child theme and integrate pretty much any page builder
into any of those themes now page builders have become super super popular I prefer to
build all of my websites using the page builder and it’s quickly becoming a standard now the
challenge is they don’t fully integrate with every single theme and I’m going to introduce
a solution to that problem in this video so with Genesis this is a standard Genesis theme
it’s actually the default parent theme and if I have a page builder for example I have
Beaver Builder installed this solutions can be for any page builder this is what the integration
looks like now typically when you’re using a page builder you want that road to be full
with edge to edge and you don’t want the title on the page are all this margin on the top
and margin on the bottom you don’t want those for full page builder integration and so for
Genesis there is an existing solution to this but what I’m introducing today is a better
way so here I am on this website I want to go to my plug-ins area and here is the existing
solution is called Genesis damn Buster and it’s been great and it served the community
well but there’s some things I don’t like about it first of all this is what the settings
panel looks like when you’re on any kind of page so for instance years that full with
page I created when you scroll down it is tab after tab after tab with options and things
you need to check in all that and I just find it a little more complicated than it needs
to be and then that brings me to the number two problem with this solution is it only
works on Genesis so what happens if you ever changed from Genesis themes to something else
you’re going to be SOL which is completely out of luck you’re no longer going to be able
to use Genesis damn Buster anymore because it only works with one theme the solution
I’m introducing will work with any theme and any page builders you’re not locked into anything
so now obviously if your code or you can whip up some CSS for any theme in any page builder
and do it like that but for the other 98% of us we want an easy solution so here is
an easy three click solution to get full page builder integration with virtually any page
builder and virtually any theme and this is a simple as it is your go to plug-ins you
go to add new and you’re going to search for the word fullwidth and this is what’s going
to come up full with templates for any theme or page builder now this is a newer plug-in
I’m one of the contributors it was actually my idea I realize there needs to be a flexible
way to give anyone with any page builder full integration with any theme and before this
there really wasn’t a solution for that so just go ahead and install and activate and
let me show you how easy it is in three clicks to integrate any page builder with any steam
all we have to do is go back to pages, go back to that full with page so instead of
creating a new meta-box and just adding more complexity to your page this is using a native
WordPress feature which is right here templates and what this plug is gonna do right now it
adds three templates I want added 1/4 one but is just adding these three right here
fullwidth full with with no header and footer sets can make it perfect for creating any
kind of landing pages or sales pages where you want the visitors focus solely on the
content and you don’t want to provide options for them to go other places on your website
and then full with with no sidebar so what were going to use most the time is this one
right here full with so just go ahead and select that and then click on update so I
don’t know if you’re paying attention all that took was three clicks I scroll down I
clicked on this drop-down I chose the one I wanted that was my second click and then
I click on update and this is what you get I want to go ahead and refresh the page and
you get full page builder integration with Beaver Builder or Elementor or even Divi builder
if that’s what you wanted to use it will pretty much work with any page builder and anything
now here’s a couple caveats there are thousands of WordPress themes so invariably you might
find a theme where there might be something odd happening and all you have to do is open
up a support ticket on WordPress.org and let us know about it will look into it and we
will update the plug-in to make sure it supports you a perfect example of this is when we release
that it wasn’t working right with the storefront theme and so someone told us about it and
within a day or two we updated it and we made it work perfectly with the storefront theme
so if you notice any weirdness with anything you’re trying to do all you have to do is
let us know will gladly look into adding support for your theme however this is already tested
and working with Genesis themes and most other well coded themes definitely all the most
popular themes and like I said earlier the best part of the solution is it’s not tied
to a particular theme you can change your theme and retain all of these beautiful full
width pages so that means for any website that your building you might as well just
install and activate this plug-in and use it from day one so you don’t have to later
go back in and select these page templates for each one of these pages it would just
be a lot easier that way and of course if you use this plug-in with success we would
be very happy if you went on to WordPress.org and left a five star review to show your support

How to Start a Drop Shipping Business

How to Start a Drop Shipping Business


Many people shy away from starting an online
store because of the initial start-up costs. But imagine if someone offered to pay your
up-front inventory costs on thousands of items and manage all your shipping and fulfillment
operations for you. It’d be much easier to get started, and you could run your business
from anywhere in the world. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not,
if you know about drop shipping. In this video, I’m going to explain exactly
how drop shipping works, show you how to find drop shippers for your products, and give
solutions to some common problems associated with drop shipping.
And if you stick around until the end of this video, you’ll get access to “The Ultimate
Guide to Dropshipping” a free bonus guide that shows you exactly how to start a dropshipping
business. Alright, let’s dive in. What is drop shipping? Well, drop shipping
is a retail method in which you don’t keep products in stock. Instead, you partner with
a wholesale supplier that stocks its own inventory – you transfer customer orders and shipment
details to them, and they ship the goods directly to the customer.
The biggest benefit of drop shipping is you don’t have to worry about fulfillment or inventory
issues. Also, most customers don’t know you’re drop shipping, since “private label shipping”
lets you ship from the wholesaler with a return address and invoice customized to your ecommerce
store. Let’s quickly go over a few other benefits of drop shipping.
One – You don’t need buckets of money. Drop shipping makes it amazingly easy to get started
selling online. You don’t need to invest heavily in inventory, yet you can still offer thousands
of items to your customers. Two – Convenience and efficiency. Successfully
launching and growing an ecommerce business takes a lot of work, especially if you have
limited resources. Not having to worry about fulfillment is incredibly convenient and frees
up your time to concentrate on marketing, customer service, and operations
Three – Mobility – with all the physical fulfillment issues handled, you’re free to operate your
business anywhere you can get an internet connection.
Four – It’s a trusted model. You might be thinking that this sounds like some sketchy,
fly-by-night model – but it’s not. Plenty of online stores, and even major retailers
use drop shipping to offer a wider selection of products to their customers without having
to deal with increased inventory hassles. How do I find drop shipping wholesalers? Well,
first off, in the United States, most suppliers will ask you for your business EIN number
and a copy of your state sales tax and/or resale certificate. So you may want to consider
having your legal ducks in a row before contacting suppliers. However, this isn’t always the
case and there’s no reason why you can’t start contacting drop shipping suppliers immediately.
Now, if you already know what products you’d like to drop ship, contacting the original
manufacturer is the easiest way to find qualified distributors. Not all distributors will be
willing to drop ship, but it will give you a list to follow up with.
Unfortunately, the market is littered with scams and low-quality information. If you
do decide to invest in a directory, we recommend the paid directory World Wide Brands as a
reputable source of drop shipping wholesalers – but it’s still very important to exercise
caution. Additionally, if you’re using Shopify you
can access a variety of apps in our app store that will connect you directly with reputable
dropshippers. I’ve linked to a few of these in the description of this video.
How to use Google to find wholesalers. Google can also be an effective tool for finding
drop shippers, but you need to keep a few things in mind. Here are some tips you can
use to find a wholesaler through google. The first thing you’ll want to do is Search
Extensively. Wholesalers and drop shippers are notoriously bad at SEO and marketing,
and usually aren’t going to pop up on the first page of Google for a term like “handbag
wholesaler.” Instead, you’ll need to dig deep into the search results, often going
through 10 or 20 pages of listings. Additionally, you should use lots of modifiers:
As you hunt for suppliers, don’t stop with a search for “wholesale” – make sure to
use other terms, including “distributor” , “reseller” , “bulk” , “warehouse”
and “supplier.” It’s also important to note that suppliers
also tend to have outdated, late ‘90s-era websites. So don’t be scared away by abysmal
design and layout. While a sleek, modern site could signal a great supplier, a low-quality
one doesn’t necessarily indicate a bad one. Now, despite our glowing recommendation, drop
shipping isn’t ecommerce nirvana. Like all models, it has its challenges and downsides,
which we’ll quickly go over now. One – There will be loads of competition and
weaker margins. It’s true. Products that can be drop shipped will spawn a lot of competition.
Usually this will lead to cutthroat pricing and diminishing profit margins, making it
hard to build a viable business. To be successful, you typically can’t compete
on price. Instead, you’ll need to offer value in a different way, usually through top-notch
product education, service or selection. Two – syncing inventory is difficult and leads
to out-of-stock items. The best way to mitigate this problem is to work with multiple suppliers
with overlapping product lines. It’s inherently dangerous to rely on a single supplier. Having
two suppliers doubles the likelihood that an item will be in stock and available for
shipment. Many sophisticated suppliers offer a real-time
product feed, and you can use a service like eCommHub to easily sync your Shopify website
with the warehouse. Eventually, you’ll sell a customer an out-of-stock
item. Instead of canceling the order, offer the customer an upgraded product or discount.
You might not make much – if any – money on the order, but you’ll likely build a loyal
brand advocate. Three – It’s hard to sell products that
you never see, however In today’s world, it’s possible to become an expert in just about
everything through information online. Selling products from manufacturers with detailed
websites will allow you to become intimately familiar with a product line without ever
having touched a physical item. And when you do need to answer specific question about
a product, a quick call to your supplier or manufacturer will give you the answer you
need. You can also buy your most popular items to
get acquainted with them, and then resell them as “used” or “refurbished,” often
recouping most of your investment. Four Third party errors. Involving a third
party will result in more fulfillment errors, mistakes, and logistical problems. Even the
best dropshippers make occasional mistakes, and mediocre ones make a lot of them. Suppliers
are fairly good about paying to remedy problems, but when they’re not, you need to be willing
to spend what’s necessary to resolve the issue for your customer. If you try to blame your supplier for a fulfillment
problem, you’re going to come off as amateurish and unprofessional. Similarly, if you’re unwilling
to ship out a cheap replacement part to a customer because your supplier won’t cover
the cost, your reputation is going to suffer. One of the costs of drop shipping convenience
is the expense of remedying logistical problems. If you accept it as cost of doing business
– and always make sure to put your customer first – it shouldn’t be a long-term issue.
Is drop shipping the path to overnight ecommerce success? Of course not. As with any successful
online store, you’ll need to invest over time in a quality website, marketing, and customer
service. But drop shipping does provide an easy way
to get started and the ability to leverage other people’s capital without having to invest
thousands of your own. When managed correctly, it can form the foundation of your own successful
online store. If you’re looking to learn more about drop
shipping – check out our “Ultimate Guide to Drop shipping” , a free comprehensive
guide that covers everything you need to know about building and running a successful drop
shipping business. Thanks for watching and if you found this

Introduction To Shopify Theme Editor || Shopify Help Center 2019

Introduction To Shopify Theme Editor || Shopify Help Center 2019


When you use a free Shopify theme, you can
easily modify the content and layout of the different pages on your store. Use sections to add and move features like
a gallery, slideshow, testimonials and more. Use theme settings to customize your store’s
fonts and colors, and make changes to your social media links and checkout settings. If you’re new to the channel, consider subscribing
for weekly how to videos from Shopify support. Check out the timestamps to navigate this
video. To access your theme customizer, start in
your Shopify admin. Click Online Store. Choose what theme you’d like to edit and
click Customize. This example selects the published theme which
appears in the Current theme section. You are now in the theme customizer. In the top left, you see the name of the theme
you’re editing, like this example, Debut. On the right, you see your online store and
how this theme currently appears. As you make changes in the theme customizer,
you see them update in real time. Since the Debut theme is the current theme
for this store, you see the Live icon in the top right. Right now, this store is password protected,
so any changes made are not visible to the public. But, if you are editing your published theme,
and your store is not password protected, all saved changes are visible to the public
as you make them. You may also be editing a theme from the theme
library section. If you’re editing a theme that is not published,
then you’ll see the Publish button in the top right and Draft in the top left. Any changes made are not visible to the public. The theme editor tool bar on the left, is
divided into Sections and Theme settings. Sections are customizable blocks of content
that determine the layout of different pages on your online store. To edit sections, select which page you’d
like to edit from the drop-down menu at the top. Each theme includes fixed sections, like the
header and footer, that show on every page of your online store. You aren’t able to move or delete these
sections, but you can edit them regardless of the page type that you select. Make use of the icons at the top reflecting
different preview styles. Here you see a desktop view. But you can also select a mobile view, or
full screen view. As you’re making changes, use these icons
to see how the online store appears on different devices. A great place to start customizing, is the
home page of your online store. Depending on what theme you chose, the default
layout may look a little different. To add a new section, click Add section. The options available here are known as dynamic
sections. Each theme has a unique set of dynamic sections
to choose from. Scroll through the list and click on a section. You see a preview of this on the right. If you’d like to use this section, click
Add. From here, customize as you see fit with images,
text or anything applicable to this section. Then, click the arrow in the top left to go
back to the toolbar. You can continue to add and customize sections,
with up to 25 sections on your home page. How you see the section’s stacked in the
toolbar is how the sections appear on the online store. If you want a section to appear higher in
the page structure, you can move this section where you’d like to see it. To do this, click and hold the six dot icon
beside a section. Then, drag the section to a different place. You can also hide sections that you don’t
want to display on your online store. For example, you can create an image with
text section to promote a new product, and then hide the section until you’re ready
to start selling it. Click the eye icon for the section you want
to hide. When a section is hidden, the eye icon has
a slash through it. Then, when you’re ready to show a section,
click the eye icon again. To remove a dynamic section, start by opening
the section. Scroll to the bottom of the toolbar, and click
Remove section. If you ever make a mistake, you can quickly
undo or redo changes using the arrows at the bottom of the toolbar. By clicking Theme actions, you can preview
your theme in a new browser window. You can also access the theme’s code and
language settings here. Always remember to click Save as you’re
making changes. Finally, Theme settings is where you customize
your store to suit your brand. You can customize colors and typography, add
links to your social media websites, upload a favicon and even customize your checkout. It’s important to note that when you make
changes in this section, the changes are made across all pages. For example, if you change the color of Sale
text, this change takes place on all online store pages. For more instructions on how to use the individual
Theme settings, see the videos linked in the description. For more videos on how to grow your business,

as possible when your products so we’re starting again today guys with the
Shopify store that my mom I’m creating for my mom I created one for her for
hating a general store for her so I’m kind of using her store as a case study
to work on getting her store selling within the first month and I’m kind of
connecting her right now so everything that I do you know on live trainings and
also live trainings I’m trying to really record it so that you guys can see it
and don’t forget if you want the full entire bundle of the Shopify set up
series the link will be in the car make sure that I put the link below this
video so that you guys go ahead and grab that bundle it is value pack bundle even
has some Facebook Ads Basics in there for a great price guys so make sure that
you grab your bundle so I’m gonna go ahead and get started if you do want to
stay in touch and make sure that you get a lot of these trains that I’m doing as
we go you can join the e-comm profit tribe if you are on Facebook and you can
get in there and I’ll make sure that link is also in the comments I’m also on
instagram and EECOM cash queen as well so that you can get updates with trains
as well guys so let’s jump into it so here we are guys we’re in the back
office where the dashboard of my mom’s Shopify store so far guys I create I’ve
connected Pinterest I’ve connected Facebook to her store and the facebook
Messenger already did a video teaching you how to connect a facebook store to
Shopify so that you can publish your products into the Facebook marketplace
so now guys I’m going to apply my mom’s store
for wish so basically the key here guys my mom is 50-plus years old probably
really sixty plus years old now I I have already trained her how to add products
to her own store the more basic the better for her she doesn’t need a lot of
steps so basically I’m teaching her I’m basically connecting sales channels that
are very low maintenance and all she has to do is either a quick share or you
know basically these products are gonna be automatically fed into these
different sales channels so which is one of those guys that you can kind of
automatically feed your products into their marketplace me personally a lot of
my sales don’t come from wish maybe every now and then one thing about wish
is that from what I can see which is mainly like a Chinese marketplace it is
open to you a lot of other you know places to kind of like businesses and
other locations to sell but it really is driven by the Chinese marketplace so the
only issue with publishing your products to wish is that you’re getting a lot of
the same products from China if you do do a lot of sourcing from China but you
also have the competitor who is actually going to be your manufacturers or your
distributors that you’re buying for from are also on wish so the competition I
mean it’s not even really fair like you’re gonna be pricing your products at
like three times the price of a lot of the Chinese sellers on that marketplace
but it’s still worth it to get more eyes on your products so I’m gonna go ahead
and connect this for her because I really want to get as many as eyes on my
mom’s products as possible so here we go I’m gonna go from strache I’m gonna
click on sales channels so that I can see what I haven’t connected yet wishes
all the way down at the bottom so I’m gonna go ahead and add the sales channel
to my mom’s store so I’m actually gonna have to sign her up because she does not
yet have a arm account here on wish so the first thing that you’re going to
want to do is create your account so I’m going to pace her email address in here in the store and I’ll just kind of like
this I can use an apostrophe okay and they want me to use a more
secure password and you know what’s wrong with the store name oh no spaces
okay so let’s try that again okay they don’t like my password so I
probably won’t be able to complete the full setup of this because I’m not gonna
really be able to connect to our payment method right now umm and stuff so guys I
kind of entered my mom’s information like her address and name and phone
number and all that kind of stuff off the screen um you know don’t forget
you’re gonna have to use a country code if you’re in the United States it’s
going to be the number one with a phone number that you want to use one wish
okay so um it’s gonna act you kind of like what platform are you currently
using I’m gonna select Shopify I’m going to go ahead and grab her Store link
again and I’m gonna paste that in here you know I’m not gonna really saying how
much revenue that I make last year I didn’t really make any revenue last year
because I really wasn’t in business so I’m not really going to and I don’t know
they may require they your store have been around longer than a year I’m not
sure my inventory I’ll just say it’s in the United States and in the state here
and I she’s gonna be sounding a lot of
different categories so I’m just gonna click off a bunch of stuff probably no
electronics for the most part but I’ll just select everything and then I’m
gonna click enter my store you can also read over their terms and services to
see so this these are all the steps which is basically going to give you all
the steps that you need to take to be able to sell one their website so you’re
gonna need to confirm your email address so let me do quickly off camera just a
moment so I went into the email address and confirm the store for her so as you
can see this box is also checked off they’re gonna actually took them confirm
your phone number now I’m not with my mom right now but you can also do that
where you can click go and you can always change the number so I can always
change it just like to my cell phone really quickly to try to confirm it make
sure the country code is in there just a moment guys so now it’s time to enter
the payment information I want to hit him verify the other things so I’m gonna
go ahead and do that I’m just going to click on PayPal let me change the
provider up here it says PayPal China it should be able to you know send you the
money to a US PayPal account one more second guys walked into this information
so once you enter your payment information as you can see they’re just
locking us through all the steps it’s gonna say add product listings to your
store so I’m going to click there next to see what they’re require me to do
next um you really shouldn’t have to actually
do this part because we’re actually connecting this through Shopify um let
me click here review the Terms of Service I’m just gonna do that so you
want to read through the Terms of Service guys I’ve already done this in
the past you want to read through those and then you’re gonna hit agree they’re
gonna ask you to check off all these boxes here so feel free to you know read
through everything and see what you’re getting yourself into one thing about
which two you’re probably gonna have to fill orders in the whole so you’re gonna
have to fill the orders upfront if you get them like which is not going to pay
you until after you fulfill the order so that’s just something to think about so
I’ve completed all of these steps I’m gonna go back over to Shopify here okay
you go back over to Shopify store they’ve actually taken me
out of here gonna go back to sales channels and I am
going to thought I already added wish okay so I’m gonna click on add wish and
I’m going to just click Add sales channel god I already did all of this so it should automatically add it for me
okay so now I’m going to connect the account hold on for one second so I went
ahead and I actually connected the account guys for her um as you can see
it looks like one product has already been published on wish but it says that
my store is not open yet I’m gonna go ahead and click here to make sure that
my store is open so a lot of these processes guys they are really the the
processes are really quick to be approved like like my last video was um okay just a moment guys so one swish approves it it’s gonna be
published here but what I was trying to say guys like the last video I was
saying that I wasn’t sure whether my mom had been a food for Pinterest yet and I
looked and she had already been approved so as long as you have all the
information completed no red flags they typically just approve you pretty
much right away so these are all of the sales channels I think I’m gonna go
ahead and move forward and I’m one ello as a sales channel for my mom is wow I’m
gonna go ahead and submit that application as well for her and you know
the more the merrier guys and this is like it’s it’s automatic that your
popular products will be published to these sales channels so it’s really like
a win-win so just wanted to share with you guys where I’m at with the store
definitely make sure that you subscribe to the channel guys follow me on
facebook at econ cash Queen and Instagram Facebook group is the econ
profit tribe the course for Shopify guys is the Shopify setup series bundle so
I’ll be sure that that’s below and love you guys make that money have a
