00:00:00 00:00:03 you guys are insane did you know that a
00:00:02 00:00:06 video I did like a week ago is it
00:00:03 00:00:08 fifteen thousand views look at this like
00:00:06 00:00:10 look at how crazy that is fifteen
00:00:08 00:00:11 thousand and that that engagement rate
00:00:10 00:00:13 though look at that seven hundred twenty
00:00:11 00:00:15 four thumbs up you guys are crazy that's
00:00:13 00:00:16 so sick to see I'm glad you guys are
00:00:15 00:00:18 liking the content and something like
00:00:16 00:00:20 this that honestly it's started I think
00:00:18 00:00:21 this is kind of how YouTube normally
00:00:20 00:00:22 works it just starts it looks like a
00:00:21 00:00:24 normal video for a few days but it just
00:00:22 00:00:26 kept going then it took off
00:00:24 00:00:27 exponentially which is freakin crazy so
00:00:26 00:00:28 thank you guys for that to everyone who
00:00:27 00:00:30 supported and dropped a like on the
00:00:28 00:00:31 video I'm gonna keep trying to make
00:00:30 00:00:32 these bangers especially now that I have
00:00:31 00:00:33 that new store so I can kind of walk
00:00:32 00:00:35 through and show you guys the creation
00:00:33 00:00:37 process behind that I hope you guys like
00:00:35 00:00:38 yesterday's video if you haven't watched
00:00:37 00:00:40 that go back and check it out because I
00:00:38 00:00:41 made a new storm on the trial I'm not
00:00:40 00:00:43 like gonna build it out or anything but
00:00:41 00:00:44 I will go through and kind of screen
00:00:43 00:00:46 record on my computer and show you like
00:00:44 00:00:47 building the actual store like the
00:00:46 00:00:49 process of that and who knows maybe
00:00:47 00:00:50 we'll do a giveaway for a store or
00:00:49 00:00:52 something so I'm not putting too much
00:00:50 00:00:53 crazy effort into it but I'm just kind
00:00:52 00:00:54 of throwing some random stuff on there
00:00:53 00:00:56 showing you the process of like setting
00:00:54 00:00:57 up product descriptions doing all the
00:00:56 00:00:59 images eventually gonna go through
00:00:57 00:01:01 organize the actual site itself all that
00:00:59 00:01:02 good stuff so if you want to see more
00:01:01 00:01:03 videos on that be sure to drop a like
00:01:02 00:01:05 and let me know in the comments down
00:01:03 00:01:07 below specifically what kind of video
00:01:05 00:01:08 you guys want to see with the new store
00:01:07 00:01:10 I can kind of go through and do whatever
00:01:08 00:01:11 so I'm curious to hear your thoughts of
00:01:10 00:01:13 what you guys want to see ideally
00:01:11 00:01:14 something you're struggling with so that
00:01:13 00:01:15 when you see me do an example of it
00:01:14 00:01:17 hopefully it'll help you but with that
00:01:15 00:01:19 being said we're just gonna be toking
00:01:17 00:01:20 about like the bare minimum everything
00:01:19 00:01:21 you need I'm gonna be toking through
00:01:20 00:01:23 apps I'll probably end up making a
00:01:21 00:01:24 separate video fully on that and going
00:01:23 00:01:26 more in depth but we're gonna tok about
00:01:24 00:01:27 apps how many products you need actually
00:01:26 00:01:28 a couple different points that I've
00:01:27 00:01:29 toked about in different videos but I
00:01:28 00:01:31 want to put it all in one place for you
00:01:29 00:01:32 guys so if you haven't started your
00:01:31 00:01:34 store at all this give me everything you
00:01:32 00:01:36 need in my opinion to get started and
00:01:34 00:01:37 get things going as fast as possible I
00:01:36 00:01:39 always preach don't waste time and you
00:01:37 00:01:40 shouldn't there's not really reason to I
00:01:39 00:01:42 could literally go through and set
00:01:40 00:01:43 everything up in the next two hours I'm
00:01:42 00:01:45 not gonna like properly set it up cuz I
00:01:43 00:01:46 just don't have the time for that right
00:01:45 00:01:48 now but I'm gonna show you guys exactly
00:01:46 00:01:49 how I would do it what I'd be using all
00:01:48 00:01:50 the apps images products how many all
00:01:49 00:01:51 that stuff and actually if you guys

00:02:00 00:02:04 being said let's get into this video
00:02:01 00:02:06 okay cool so now that we're inside of
00:02:04 00:02:07 the trial on my story as you can see we
00:02:06 00:02:08 still 12 days left
00:02:07 00:02:10 you guys haven't seen the video yet I
00:02:08 00:02:12 opened a brand new store no I didn't
00:02:10 00:02:13 really put any effort into the name or
00:02:12 00:02:16 whatever I just wanted to throw it up
00:02:13 00:02:17 and kind of use it as an example not to
00:02:16 00:02:19 actually go make sales and stuff because
00:02:17 00:02:20 I'm not gonna be doing that I just don't
00:02:19 00:02:22 have the time to do that with the new
00:02:20 00:02:24 store as of right now I'm really really
00:02:22 00:02:26 watched and I promise you I will at some
00:02:24 00:02:27 point once I get my current store to a
00:02:26 00:02:29 hundred thousand a month or more so I'll
00:02:27 00:02:31 be showing you guys that journey along
00:02:29 00:02:32 the way but right now with this storm
00:02:31 00:02:34 just gonna be using that as an example
00:02:32 00:02:36 you know I'm a guinea pig if you will we
00:02:34 00:02:38 went in yesterday and we made some
00:02:36 00:02:39 products or excuse me we made one
00:02:38 00:02:42 product I went through I showed you how
00:02:39 00:02:44 to set up the pictures which was super
00:02:42 00:02:45 simple but mostly the descriptions so if
00:02:44 00:02:46 you haven't checked out that video you
00:02:45 00:02:48 can I know I mentioned it we did a
00:02:46 00:02:49 little bit on pricing but right now
00:02:48 00:02:51 we're gonna be going through kind of the
00:02:49 00:02:52 basic things you need I'm gonna tok a
00:02:51 00:02:55 little bit about products as well as the
00:02:52 00:02:56 apps so we're gonna start it off I think
00:02:55 00:02:59 products are a little bit more relevant
00:02:56 00:03:02 right in the beginning I mentioned this
00:02:59 00:03:04 in a video before but six to nine
00:03:02 00:03:06 products exactly that I really try and
00:03:04 00:03:08 aim for six like exactly and it's a
00:03:06 00:03:10 simple reason right my layout in the
00:03:08 00:03:11 template which eventually once we
00:03:10 00:03:12 actually go and build out this site like
00:03:11 00:03:15 the actual layout of the store you'll
00:03:12 00:03:17 see this but I try and have one main
00:03:15 00:03:19 product is it's the layout I use one
00:03:17 00:03:21 main product at the top and then under
00:03:19 00:03:22 that it shows like the collections and
00:03:21 00:03:24 the featured products and you'll see
00:03:22 00:03:26 that product and then five other
00:03:24 00:03:28 products so what this does and the
00:03:26 00:03:29 reason I picked this layout and kind of
00:03:28 00:03:31 organized it in that way super simple
00:03:29 00:03:33 reason when you're on desktop right
00:03:31 00:03:35 laptop desktop like same thing you'll
00:03:33 00:03:38 see two rows with three products in each
00:03:35 00:03:40 now the reason I do that and we'll tok
00:03:38 00:03:41 about mobile in a second is because you
00:03:40 00:03:43 don't really have to scroll okay so if
00:03:41 00:03:45 you land on the website you'll
00:03:43 00:03:47 immediately see that main product the
00:03:45 00:03:49 headline whatever and ideally get hooked
00:03:47 00:03:52 and you'll click on it or if you scroll
00:03:49 00:03:54 down usually one good scroll would get
00:03:52 00:03:56 you all the products in one like scope
00:03:54 00:03:58 right all on your screen at once and
00:03:56 00:04:00 it's very very similar for mobile except
00:03:58 00:04:03 it squishes it so obviously your mobile
00:04:00 00:04:05 phone right here is smaller so it's
00:04:03 00:04:08 gonna go to it's gonna go to products
00:04:05 00:04:09 and three rows so if you scroll all the
00:04:08 00:04:12 way down doing a good scroll it'll fill
00:04:09 00:04:13 up the page entirely that it's pretty
00:04:12 00:04:15 simple reason why I do it and hopefully
00:04:13 00:04:16 you do it as well is like the more they
00:04:15 00:04:17 have to scroll
00:04:16 00:04:20 the one that to look around and like
00:04:17 00:04:21 click buttons and figure it out they're
00:04:20 00:04:23 gonna lose interest they're gonna pull
00:04:21 00:04:25 back and they're gonna retreat just
00:04:23 00:04:27 because it's more effort on there you
00:04:25 00:04:29 want it to be as simple and as smooth as
00:04:27 00:04:31 possible so to kind of sum that up right
00:04:29 00:04:33 when you start your store get six
00:04:31 00:04:34 products up okay that's like I say the
00:04:33 00:04:36 same thing with Instagram like setting
00:04:34 00:04:38 up your account so if I don't we toked
00:04:36 00:04:40 about that just get six up right you
00:04:38 00:04:41 immediately do that you don't need a
00:04:40 00:04:44 hundred if you're having it if you have
00:04:41 00:04:45 a general store maybe okay I don't
00:04:44 00:04:47 recommend doing general stores if you're
00:04:45 00:04:49 doing that go ahead I hope you crush it
00:04:47 00:04:50 you're probably gonna want more products
00:04:49 00:04:52 but for a niche specific store like this
00:04:50 00:04:54 one right here as you can see bracelets
00:04:52 00:04:57 world bracelet yeah whatever the hell I
00:04:54 00:04:58 named it yeah it's good it's good to
00:04:57 00:05:00 feel like you just just throw in six
00:04:58 00:05:03 products and you don't know why this
00:05:00 00:05:04 section here will delete this well so if
00:05:03 00:05:06 you don't know how to delete a product
00:05:04 00:05:08 that's how bing-bang-boom so six
00:05:06 00:05:10 products up and get it going
00:05:08 00:05:11 now as for apps we're gonna be toking
00:05:10 00:05:13 through a couple different apps I'm not
00:05:11 00:05:15 gonna like try and confuse you with all
00:05:13 00:05:17 this right here at each look it already
00:05:15 00:05:20 knows that we want o barrel oh it's free
00:05:17 00:05:21 it's free this is how you import those
00:05:20 00:05:22 six products I've mentioned this
00:05:21 00:05:25 multiple times
00:05:22 00:05:28 Oh bear low is the only thing there's
00:05:25 00:05:30 two apps that I say you need but ol
00:05:28 00:05:32 barrel is the only one you actually like
00:05:30 00:05:33 you can't really do it without it okay
00:05:32 00:05:36 it's gonna be stupid so and especially
00:05:33 00:05:37 since it's free so well barrel is one of
00:05:36 00:05:39 them you'd go and install that we're
00:05:37 00:05:39 gonna open up the App Store here and I'm
00:05:39 00:05:40 gonna show you the second one that
00:05:39 00:05:43 you're gonna need
00:05:40 00:05:48 it's called horrify and I'll show you
00:05:43 00:05:50 why I need it okay it's $6.99 it's a
00:05:48 00:05:52 joke 27 bucks what it does it's
00:05:50 00:05:54 basically a countdown timer it helps
00:05:52 00:05:56 with both scarcity and urgency so it
00:05:54 00:05:58 does one of two days and I I do both
00:05:56 00:06:00 with it you can either show a decreasing
00:05:58 00:06:02 time where like is counting down like
00:06:00 00:06:05 you know three hours 27 minutes 18
00:06:02 00:06:08 seconds left and or I do both I do the
00:06:05 00:06:09 and I haven't do the decreasing product
00:06:08 00:06:11 so right under it it'll show there's
00:06:09 00:06:13 only 13 left or right when they land on
00:06:11 00:06:15 you know a couple of seconds later you
00:06:13 00:06:18 set that timeframe it'll drop from 13 to
00:06:15 00:06:21 12 so that's a major key I like using
00:06:18 00:06:22 that side note just make sure absolute
00:06:21 00:06:25 let's see so many people mess up with
00:06:22 00:06:27 this if you are using this make sure
00:06:25 00:06:28 it's congruent with both your ad copy
00:06:27 00:06:30 and your product
00:06:28 00:06:32 scription on shop five because a lot of
00:06:30 00:06:34 people try and like they'll say a
00:06:32 00:06:36 hundred left and then or let's say
00:06:34 00:06:37 they're only only ten left and the
00:06:36 00:06:40 actual ad copy on their Instagram
00:06:37 00:06:42 shoutout or whatever and then they go to
00:06:40 00:06:43 the thing that says 35 left so like that
00:06:42 00:06:45 subconscious it really messes with them
00:06:43 00:06:47 because it's not congruent right there's
00:06:45 00:06:50 an inconsistency in there and that's
00:06:47 00:06:52 gonna immediately I'm gonna go with
00:06:50 00:06:54 diminish their trust and your
00:06:52 00:06:55 credibility to them so subconsciously so
00:06:54 00:06:57 they're not immediately thinking about
00:06:55 00:06:59 it but it's just all the subconscious
00:06:57 00:07:00 like reminders and it's just gonna lower
00:06:59 00:07:01 your conversion rate that's it so make
00:07:00 00:07:04 sure everything is congruent looks good
00:07:01 00:07:07 horrify and Oh bear low to absolute must
00:07:04 00:07:08 use apps I'm not actually gonna go
00:07:07 00:07:10 through and set them up or show you that
00:07:08 00:07:11 just because like I said I'm not
00:07:10 00:07:13 actually building out the store I don't
00:07:11 00:07:15 want to deal with going through and like
00:07:13 00:07:18 closing everything down and whatever so
00:07:15 00:07:19 six products those are the two things
00:07:18 00:07:21 you absolutely need and I'm gonna tell
00:07:19 00:07:23 you the one app that I actually will go
00:07:21 00:07:25 back to the app store here that I always
00:07:23 00:07:28 use on my stores but it's not
00:07:25 00:07:30 necessarily a must-have okay for me it's
00:07:28 00:07:32 a must-have might not be for you if
00:07:30 00:07:35 you're trying to save some money then
00:07:32 00:07:37 you don't have to do it okay let's just
00:07:35 00:07:38 space in there better shipping you're
00:07:37 00:07:40 trying to save a few bucks you can
00:07:38 00:07:41 finesse the shipping like by weight for
00:07:40 00:07:43 every product and set all the different
00:07:41 00:07:45 pricing but for better shipping it's 15
00:07:43 00:07:47 bucks a month I pay that it's 50 cents a
00:07:45 00:07:48 day reason I pay that is because it
00:07:47 00:07:50 allows you it shows you all your
00:07:48 00:07:52 products once you set this up inside a
00:07:50 00:07:54 better ship in like the plugin and you
00:07:52 00:07:56 just set the shipping for each one and
00:07:54 00:07:58 there's a little tab on the side that
00:07:56 00:08:00 lets you do it for multiple so what I
00:07:58 00:08:02 mean by that is like let's say you have
00:08:00 00:08:04 a bracelet and you're doing a free plus
00:08:02 00:08:06 shipping offer for it you can set the
00:08:04 00:08:08 shipping to 995 and then click a little
00:08:06 00:08:10 plus and it says if they order two or
00:08:08 00:08:13 more how much should I charge them per
00:08:10 00:08:14 product because if they order five you
00:08:13 00:08:16 don't want them to only pin in 995 one
00:08:14 00:08:17 time you want it to pay it you want them
00:08:16 00:08:19 to pay for each product obviously right
00:08:17 00:08:20 so you can set that criteria so you
00:08:19 00:08:22 don't have to worry about people like
00:08:20 00:08:24 you know I guess robbing you basically
00:08:22 00:08:26 I've had that happen so better shipping
00:08:24 00:08:27 avoids that makes it super simple and I
00:08:26 00:08:29 never really went out and learned how to
00:08:27 00:08:31 do it with like setting up the weights
00:08:29 00:08:33 so I can't give you that answer
00:08:31 00:08:34 don't even bother asking that you can
00:08:33 00:08:36 google it I've seen YouTube videos on it
00:08:34 00:08:38 so I know the answers out there if you
00:08:36 00:08:39 want to put in the work for that but for
00:08:38 00:08:42 me better shipping makes all the sense
00:08:39 00:08:43 in the world so that's why I use it and
00:08:42 00:08:45 that's why I recommend you do too if
00:08:43 00:08:46 you're if you're able to now jump in
00:08:45 00:08:48 back real quick to what I said about
00:08:46 00:08:50 having like the main product up on this
00:08:48 00:08:51 site the site like the layout how you
00:08:50 00:08:54 have one and then you know something
00:08:51 00:08:56 below that one main one I hope randomly
00:08:54 00:08:57 pick it out of the six products
00:08:56 00:08:59 whichever one I think will do best and
00:08:57 00:09:01 if it's not doing well I'm gonna switch
00:08:59 00:09:02 it right I'm gonna go have like other
00:09:01 00:09:04 products cycle through there and see
00:09:02 00:09:07 which one's work best oh and my dog was
00:09:04 00:09:09 just barking at the UPS guy so I had to
00:09:07 00:09:10 deal with that but back into this so
00:09:09 00:09:11 what I was toking about having liked
00:09:10 00:09:13 the product and how I'm cycling through
00:09:11 00:09:15 is I'm just gonna keep tested if it's
00:09:13 00:09:16 not doing well whatever the main product
00:09:15 00:09:17 is I'm gonna go and I'm gonna switch it
00:09:16 00:09:19 to something else that I'm gonna keep
00:09:17 00:09:20 running through and testing and cycling
00:09:19 00:09:22 through new products to figure out what
00:09:20 00:09:24 works because whatever product is doing
00:09:22 00:09:25 the best and selling the most on your
00:09:24 00:09:26 store you want it to be the main product
00:09:25 00:09:27 on your store because then it's just
00:09:26 00:09:29 like doubling up on it it's just gonna
00:09:27 00:09:31 be an exponential growth curve and
00:09:29 00:09:32 you're gonna sell even more so hope that
00:09:31 00:09:34 was so straightforward practikal advice
00:09:32 00:09:36 my goal of this was to not confuse you
00:09:34 00:09:38 just to give you some like super solid
00:09:36 00:09:39 beginner advice for you guys who maybe
00:09:38 00:09:41 already have a store but ideally for
00:09:39 00:09:42 those of you who don't if you don't even
00:09:41 00:09:45 have your store yet there's a link down
00:09:42 00:09:46 below 314 to trial from Shopify that's
00:09:45 00:09:48 exactly what we're on with this store we
00:09:46 00:09:49 still have 12 days left as you can see
00:09:48 00:09:51 but that's what allows you to get in
00:09:49 00:09:52 tests that you can add your products add
00:09:51 00:09:53 the apps lay out your store do

00:09:55 00:09:58 cool and jump in there if you haven't
