10 Actionable Steps After Starting Your First Shopify Store

by | Jan 20, 2018 | Shopify Guides

Today I’m going to outline ten crucial steps you should take after launching your first Shopify store. Refer back to this as your checklist.

Let’s begin!

1. Connect a new or existing email to your Shopify store. Gmail works great. (*Free)

2. Purchase and setup your domain name. We suggest GoDaddy. (*Around $15/year)

3. Submit your new site to Google Search Console. This is a tool used to index your website on Google. (*Free)

4. Sign up and install Google Analytics. Which you will use to track visitor and traffic metrics. (*Free)

5. Create social media profiles. The key here is not to stretch yourself too thin and first focus on 1-2 platforms. We like Facebook and Instagram. (*Free)

6. Setup and install retargeting pixels. Do this via both Facebook Pixel and Google Remarketing codes. (*Free)

7. Add more awesome products to your store. We strongly recommend to consider our strategy to leveraging Amazon as a dropship supplier. (*No investment up front)

8. Blog, blog, blog! Seriously, one of the most beneficial things you can do as a new business owners is share your brand’s story and offer valuable content in your space. (*Built in to Shopify)

9. Share killer content on your social media. Remember, don’t just sell, sell, sell. Build your following by funneling content to your audience. (*Free)

10. Launch a paid advertising campaign with Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, and Instagram influencer shoutouts. Then follow up with an incredible re-marketing campaign to visitors of your site who were tracked using your retargeting codes. (*Paid)

Rinse and repeat steps 7 through 10.

Pro Tip:

  • Be patient. When running a paid adversing campaign, expect a loss as first. Accept that and move on. This is the stage where you need to invest a little up front to gather data and built your retargeting lists. Majority of the money is made with effective remarketing.

That concludes this guide. I hope it brought value to you and your business.
