00:01:03 00:01:06 more time let's just get right into it
00:01:04 00:01:08 the first thing you'll have to do in
00:01:06 00:01:10 order to find any type of success with
00:01:08 00:01:12 these five tips however
00:01:10 00:01:14 is to destroy that like button until it
00:01:12 00:01:16 turns blue i promise just gonna take
00:01:14 00:01:18 two quick seconds faster than how much
00:01:16 00:01:19 it would take you to apply these tips
00:01:18 00:01:21 okay hopefully you have destroyed the
00:01:19 00:01:23 like button down below but
00:01:21 00:01:24 tip number one and that is upload
00:01:23 00:01:27 products from your
00:01:24 00:01:29 own home not from any online website now
00:01:27 00:01:30 what do i mean by this exactly with some
00:01:29 00:01:32 of my own
00:01:30 00:01:33 google ads mentoring students and by the
00:01:32 00:01:35 way i am still offering one-on-one
00:01:33 00:01:36 google ads mentoring
00:01:35 00:01:39 if you're interested in that send me a
00:01:36 00:01:40 message on instagram dedicated young
00:01:39 00:01:42 or leave a comment down below and i'll
00:01:40 00:01:43 reply to you with the more information
00:01:42 00:01:44 regarding the one-on-one google ads
00:01:43 00:01:46 mentoring
00:01:44 00:01:48 i've started to see more success with my
00:01:46 00:01:49 students getting their merchant center
00:01:48 00:01:51 accounts approved
00:01:49 00:01:53 if they go within their homes take
00:01:51 00:01:55 photos of items within their home
00:01:53 00:01:57 and then upload those to their shopify
00:01:55 00:01:59 store as if they were selling it
00:01:57 00:02:00 rather than going on aliexpress rather
00:01:59 00:02:02 than going on ebay
00:02:00 00:02:04 to directly add to their store like you
00:02:02 00:02:05 normally would and this is one of the
00:02:04 00:02:06 biggest game changers i've personally
00:02:05 00:02:08 notiked and
00:02:06 00:02:10 all you have to do here is basically go
00:02:08 00:02:12 around your house if you see a chair
00:02:10 00:02:14 somewhere or if you see a painting or
00:02:12 00:02:14 whatever that you see within your own
00:02:14 00:02:16 home
00:02:14 00:02:18 which is not really a branded product
00:02:16 00:02:20 you can put it on your shopify store by
00:02:18 00:02:21 taking custom photos meaning photos with
00:02:20 00:02:22 your phone
00:02:21 00:02:24 and uploading them directly onto your
00:02:22 00:02:26 shopify store and no this does not mean
00:02:24 00:02:27 that you have to become a professional
00:02:26 00:02:29 photographer or hire somebody
00:02:27 00:02:31 to take photos for you simply lay it
00:02:29 00:02:33 down on a flat surface on a plain
00:02:31 00:02:35 background and upload the photo and the
00:02:33 00:02:37 product to your website as if you were
00:02:35 00:02:39 selling it i just recently had a call
00:02:37 00:02:40 with a mentoring student today who was
00:02:39 00:02:42 able to actually get their merchant
00:02:40 00:02:42 center approved and their google ads are
00:02:42 00:02:44 kind of approved
00:02:42 00:02:46 through this method and there's other
00:02:44 00:02:48 students as well who have been able to
00:02:46 00:02:50 achieve this with custom photos and
00:02:48 00:02:51 custom products so
00:02:50 00:02:53 simply go within your home look around
00:02:51 00:02:55 for products and put them
00:02:53 00:02:57 on your store it can literally be a rock
00:02:55 00:02:58 as long as you take good photos of that
00:02:57 00:03:00 raw give it a fancy name
00:02:58 00:03:02 it should be good to go as long as it is
00:03:00 00:03:04 not a branded product
00:03:02 00:03:05 but in addition to that when it comes to
00:03:04 00:03:07 actually writing the descriptions
00:03:05 00:03:08 for these products and by the way when i
00:03:07 00:03:11 say products i mean at about
00:03:08 00:03:13 five to 15 different products of these
00:03:11 00:03:14 kind to your shopify store for best
00:03:13 00:03:16 chances of getting approved
00:03:14 00:03:18 for the descriptions for these products
00:03:16 00:03:19 first of all you want to write
00:03:18 00:03:21 a normal description maybe a hundred
00:03:19 00:03:23 word description describing the product
00:03:21 00:03:25 maybe just add specifications
00:03:23 00:03:26 or something like that but at the very
00:03:25 00:03:28 end add these do
00:03:26 00:03:30 two sections for every single product
00:03:28 00:03:31 first things first our guarantee section
00:03:30 00:03:33 this should tok about some kind of
00:03:31 00:03:34 guarantee which you are offering your
00:03:33 00:03:36 customers
00:03:34 00:03:38 number two offer the shipping times and
00:03:36 00:03:38 in this case i recommend putting in that
00:03:38 00:03:40 you
00:03:38 00:03:42 do deliver within two to ten business
00:03:40 00:03:44 days of course we're not really going to
00:03:42 00:03:46 be selling these products but for the
00:03:44 00:03:47 purpose of getting our merchant tenor
00:03:46 00:03:49 of getting our google ads account
00:03:47 00:03:51 approved we do need to write two to ten
00:03:49 00:03:52 business days but that is tip number one
00:03:51 00:03:54 and that could really
00:03:52 00:03:56 change your results that you're getting
00:03:54 00:03:58 with your approval for the merchant
00:03:56 00:04:00 center let's move on to tip number two
00:03:58 00:04:02 and that is related to the policy pages
00:04:00 00:04:05 this is one of the most overlooked
00:04:02 00:04:07 section of uh of any shopify store and
00:04:05 00:04:09 this is also one of the main reasons
00:04:07 00:04:11 why a lot of people get suspended with
00:04:09 00:04:12 google ads or google merchant center
00:04:11 00:04:15 and that is because they have not
00:04:12 00:04:16 properly set up their policy pages
00:04:15 00:04:18 you want to know that all policy pages
00:04:16 00:04:20 need to have the same data
00:04:18 00:04:22 and all of that data needs to be edited
00:04:20 00:04:24 what do i mean by this exactly
00:04:22 00:04:26 if you say the shipping time is 2 to 10
00:04:24 00:04:26 business days on your product
00:04:26 00:04:28 description
00:04:26 00:04:30 it should be saying two to ten
00:04:28 00:04:31 businesses on the shipping policy it
00:04:30 00:04:33 should say the same thing on the return
00:04:31 00:04:35 policy or wherever else
00:04:33 00:04:37 you decide to mention that if on one
00:04:35 00:04:38 page it says two to ten on another test
00:04:37 00:04:39 seven to fifteen
00:04:38 00:04:42 that is going to be known as
00:04:39 00:04:44 misrepresentation that is an easy way to
00:04:42 00:04:45 not get approved for the google merchant
00:04:44 00:04:47 center account so that is how
00:04:45 00:04:49 you kind of avoid that basically edit
00:04:47 00:04:51 the policy pages and make sure the
00:04:49 00:04:53 information is fully matching on every
00:04:51 00:04:54 single page but in addition
00:04:53 00:04:56 a lot of these policy pages actually
00:04:54 00:04:58 have special brackets where you're
00:04:56 00:04:59 allowed to go in and edit that
00:04:58 00:05:01 information and
00:04:59 00:05:02 actually shopify requires that you go in
00:05:01 00:05:04 and edit that information maybe add in
00:05:02 00:05:05 your store's url
00:05:04 00:05:07 or add in your store's name or any other
00:05:05 00:05:08 information so what you want to do is
00:05:07 00:05:10 read
00:05:08 00:05:12 these policy pages word for word line
00:05:10 00:05:12 for line and make sure that all of the
00:05:12 00:05:14 information
00:05:12 00:05:16 is correctly provided all of the
00:05:14 00:05:18 information where it needs to be edited
00:05:16 00:05:20 is actually edited otherwise you're just
00:05:18 00:05:22 going to not get approved for the google
00:05:20 00:05:24 merchant center account and again
00:05:22 00:05:25 this was the second biggest game changer
00:05:24 00:05:27 that i personally notiked to getting
00:05:25 00:05:29 more merchant center accounts approved
00:05:27 00:05:31 let's move on to tip number three and
00:05:29 00:05:33 that is the ways of communication
00:05:31 00:05:35 that you provide back in the day when
00:05:33 00:05:36 shopify was easy when google ads was
00:05:35 00:05:38 easy
00:05:36 00:05:40 all you really needed was a contact us
00:05:38 00:05:40 page with an email address and that
00:05:40 00:05:42 contact
00:05:40 00:05:44 us form and that was basically good for
00:05:42 00:05:46 all advertising platforms
00:05:44 00:05:48 nowadays if you have just that you're
00:05:46 00:05:49 most likely not going to be even
00:05:48 00:05:50 approved for the google merchant center
00:05:49 00:05:52 account
00:05:50 00:05:54 or for google ads and even in facebook
00:05:52 00:05:55 ads case it may cause you problems later
00:05:54 00:05:58 on down the line so
00:05:55 00:06:00 here is what i recommend not only should
00:05:58 00:06:02 you have a valid email address on file
00:06:00 00:06:04 on your website mentioned on multiple
00:06:02 00:06:06 pages but preferably you should also
00:06:04 00:06:07 have a phone number
00:06:06 00:06:08 and this doesn't mean you have to
00:06:07 00:06:10 provide your personal phone number you
00:06:08 00:06:11 can use free applications like
00:06:10 00:06:14 googlevoice.com
00:06:11 00:06:16 i use a paid one called openphone.com
00:06:14 00:06:17 and no open phone does not sponsor me
00:06:16 00:06:19 for this is this what i personally use
00:06:17 00:06:21 and what i have personally found results
00:06:19 00:06:22 with but having a phone number does
00:06:21 00:06:24 wonders because not only does it help
00:06:22 00:06:26 you stand out of the crowd
00:06:24 00:06:27 but it also proves your trustworthiness
00:06:26 00:06:29 in google's eyes
00:06:27 00:06:30 which is exactly what we want so make
00:06:29 00:06:32 sure to have a phone number along with
00:06:30 00:06:33 an email address mentioned on multiple
00:06:32 00:06:34 pages
00:06:33 00:06:36 and the third one if you really want to
00:06:34 00:06:38 go above and beyond is to
00:06:36 00:06:40 have a physical address on your website
00:06:38 00:06:41 now this doesn't mean again that you put
00:06:40 00:06:43 your personal
00:06:41 00:06:44 physical address where you live but you
00:06:43 00:06:46 can buy one
00:06:44 00:06:47 physical address online or you can have
00:06:46 00:06:49 a po box address
00:06:47 00:06:51 which you provide and all of these work
00:06:49 00:06:52 but this is just an extra step i don't
00:06:51 00:06:54 really do this personally
00:06:52 00:06:55 but just in case if you want to do it
00:06:54 00:06:57 feel free to do that that can only
00:06:55 00:06:58 increase your chances
00:06:57 00:07:00 of getting approved but this brings me
00:06:58 00:07:01 to the fourth tip
00:07:00 00:07:03 on my list and this is a very short and
00:07:01 00:07:04 simple tip it's basically related to
00:07:03 00:07:07 social media
00:07:04 00:07:08 nowadays having a social media presence
00:07:07 00:07:10 is extremely important
00:07:08 00:07:12 and if you already have a facebook page
00:07:10 00:07:14 set up an instagram page set up
00:07:12 00:07:16 properly but also with a few followers
00:07:14 00:07:18 it's going to do wonders with getting
00:07:16 00:07:19 your merch antenna account approved
00:07:18 00:07:21 now keep in mind that the merchant
00:07:19 00:07:23 center approval process
00:07:21 00:07:24 is not done by a real human it's done by
00:07:23 00:07:27 the algorithm and by a bot
00:07:24 00:07:29 but even in that case if the links are
00:07:27 00:07:30 present on your website and maybe you
00:07:29 00:07:33 have posted a few products on your
00:07:30 00:07:35 social media pages directly linking back
00:07:33 00:07:37 to your website that could be counted as
00:07:35 00:07:38 a back link and google is going to be
00:07:37 00:07:40 able to crawl through that
00:07:38 00:07:42 is going to be able to note that down
00:07:40 00:07:43 and that can only benefit you
00:07:42 00:07:45 with getting your merchant center
00:07:43 00:07:46 account approved so what i recommend is
00:07:45 00:07:47 having social media channels set up
00:07:46 00:07:49 properly
00:07:47 00:07:50 but in addition post a few things on
00:07:49 00:07:51 there make sure you have a few followers
00:07:50 00:07:52 on there
00:07:51 00:07:54 you can ask your friends or family
00:07:52 00:07:55 members to follow or you can even buy
00:07:54 00:07:58 followers maybe
00:07:55 00:07:59 even 50 to 100 it doesn't really matter
00:07:58 00:08:01 the main reason why we're doing this
00:07:59 00:08:02 proof to google has that we are a legit
00:08:01 00:08:03 and verified business we're not just
00:08:02 00:08:05 somebody
00:08:03 00:08:06 who's in here to scam our customers and
00:08:05 00:08:08 that is exactly
00:08:06 00:08:10 what google wants and that is exactly
00:08:08 00:08:12 why the rules have become so strict
00:08:10 00:08:14 for a lot of us dropshippers so that's
00:08:12 00:08:15 tip number four have an active social
00:08:14 00:08:17 media presence and at least have a few
00:08:15 00:08:18 followers on there but
00:08:17 00:08:20 this brings me to the final tip that i
00:08:18 00:08:22 have for you guys and that is
00:08:20 00:08:24 related to the shipping and the general
00:08:22 00:08:27 settings when it comes to the merchant
00:08:24 00:08:29 center and google ad and shopify itself
00:08:27 00:08:30 you want to make sure that all of the
00:08:29 00:08:32 settings across the board
00:08:30 00:08:34 are the exact same so when you're
00:08:32 00:08:36 signing up for a merchant center account
00:08:34 00:08:38 you put one address in make sure that is
00:08:36 00:08:40 the same address used for the google ads
00:08:38 00:08:42 account as well as your shopify store
00:08:40 00:08:44 if you have one address on the merchant
00:08:42 00:08:46 center another one on the shopify store
00:08:44 00:08:47 that can be counted as misrepresentation
00:08:46 00:08:48 and that can actually cause you more
00:08:47 00:08:50 problems because
00:08:48 00:08:51 that is going to be a little bit
00:08:50 00:08:52 suspicious to google as to why you have
00:08:51 00:08:54 two different accounts
00:08:52 00:08:56 when you're using both of these for the
00:08:54 00:08:58 same purpose so in order to avoid that
00:08:56 00:08:59 always make sure to have the same
00:08:58 00:09:01 settings throughout all of these
00:08:59 00:09:02 different platforms but in addition
00:09:01 00:09:05 when it comes to setting up stuff like
00:09:02 00:09:06 shipping settings or general information
00:09:05 00:09:08 that you need to sign up for a merchant
00:09:06 00:09:09 center account or a google ads account
00:09:08 00:09:11 or a shopify store
00:09:09 00:09:12 make sure all of that matches for
00:09:11 00:09:14 instance one of the easiest ways to get
00:09:12 00:09:16 suspended how on the merchant center is
00:09:14 00:09:18 to not have accurate shipping settings
00:09:16 00:09:20 and then when google crawls through your
00:09:18 00:09:22 website it notikes one shipping setting
00:09:20 00:09:23 but then on your merchant center it says
00:09:22 00:09:25 something completely different and that
00:09:23 00:09:27 is a cause of misrepresentation because
00:09:25 00:09:28 your shipping settings are not properly
00:09:27 00:09:30 set up they're both saying something
00:09:28 00:09:32 else and that is an easy way
00:09:30 00:09:33 to get suspended so make sure not just
00:09:32 00:09:35 shipping but generally
00:09:33 00:09:37 all of the settings match all of them
00:09:35 00:09:38 are the same but this is my top five
00:09:37 00:09:40 tips for you guys
00:09:38 00:09:42 in order to find better success of
00:09:40 00:09:43 getting your merchant center
