Shopify Tutorial for Beginners

so you do not need to put a credit or debit card in there it will ask you just for an email okay so let's get started the first thing that you need to do is just click on the link on the description box down below as I told you it will not ask you for a credit or debit card so let's get into it.
okay so let's get started the first thing you need to do is click in the link in the description box below under this video and then once you're here you can have a password for your website let's make it fast and secure and then is your store name so mine's going to be called in product with Russ, yeah and you can click create stuff so next is going to ask you a couple of questions these are not super important and then what you've got is some information.
that you need to put in once you've done that you can enter your store, ok and now we are going to get into the good stuff and as you can see right now we are at the dashboard this is the main part of Shopify we're going to be looking at this every day in the right here we have a sales breakdown States so once you make a sale you're gonna see it here and believe me guys you're going to check it.

almost every 5 or 10 minutes ok so on the left here we have your menu and in the middle, we've got some information to start off with so if I have some nice training as well ok we can definitely check that out later on so on the left here we have our older sections this is going to allow you to see the daily orders and all the information about your customers we've got products and this is where we add the product and we do this in just a little bit so we're going to do this a little bit later.
okay so we got some more information right here but generally, it's going to be heating up the product section if you go to the customers, you will be able to see everything related to customers and get in touch with them so you've got to see customers and people who accept marketing and who don't accept email marketing okay so next up we have our analytics section so this is essentially the statistics would go to see your total sales online stores session on how many people actually call me to the store returning customer right and your conversion rate and things like that so this can be a great way to actually help you guys and this can give you a very a good overview of what's actually happening on your website in the marketing section in here.

this is relatively new and this is going to allow you to create Facebook or Google ads so don't forget this is just a short tutorial guys but we're going to get into more in-depth to that later this is a little bit more in-depth so we won't cover this in the quick tutorial but I will make a video about this later on in the discount section right here we can create discount code so we can maybe do a buy one get one free discount code or we can create something like a Black Friday discount code you can check this out with defense than try to get a discount on your product so we're going to go through this a little bit later we also have the app section and the app store which allows you to plug-in apps.

it really allows you to really get some great features on the website and then down here we have our sales channels today our sales channel is the online store we've got themes which allows you to change different themes or templates on your website we've got blog post which allows you to create a blog post pages which a standalone page is like a Contact Us page or something similar to that your shipping policies retain policies things like that navigation.

which is your menu so essentially your main menu and the full menu we have domains which allow you to create a domain name and then we've got also some preferences down here which are essentially your SEO preferences your meta description and also if you've got things like a Facebook pixel or Google Scot at the bottom in here we have a Settings section which is definitely something.
we will take a quick look at as you can see right here we have all of the different information you can change you can change your text rates you can change your payment provider so whether you can be paid through PayPal or other payment provided depending on the country where you're going to operate you can customize your check out and then you got things like buildings and well which is something.

we are going to take a look at now but first what we're going to do is add a product okay
so let's add the product essentially what you need to do is you need to go at products and then you've got your title right here so as we got something that has to do with posts you're fixing essentially we're going to create let me call it to posture fixer 2020 because you know there might be a lot of campaigns that have to do with fixing the posture this is just like a sample let's say today down here we have a description section so okay this is great posture fixture let's say something like posture fixture that will help you with back pain improve your hate and more and then what we can do is add an image let me select this one okay so let's upload one I have a posture fix picture in here okay upload it we can also have pricing let's say we're gonna charge this $20 so you can include Texas fees.

let me put it like we have 10 on stock and then what we do is we are going to Click Save right here you can say you can see that if we click on the view in here okay that we now have our posture fixture then now we can have the possibility to even Add to Cart and persons that if we wish to so next what we're going to do is to go to an online store and set up a website how it looks so what we're going to do for this one is going to themes to our right here so what we can do is we can click on explore free themes because Shopify comes with a number of different preteens and you can say that we have a number of different themes in here that you can actually use I think today we're going to use the Brooklyn one so we need to do what we need to do is we need to click add Brooklyn so what you can do is scroll down you can click on actions in here and then you click on publish and now you'll see that we've got the Brooklyn, it will be published so if we go to the website in here by clicking on this little I okay you will now see that the Brooklyn is our team we have a number of different sections in here which allows you to really customize the site so let's customize it so let's click on edit homepage at the bottom in here you can see on the left in year we have a number of different sections so if we can adjust our head up which is the top in here you can exhaust the slideshow which is the hero banner we have a rich text section we have a collection list a feature section and there's a product that we actually. 

just had before and then news later too so let's keep it relatively simple because this is just a quick tutorial and I don't want to go too much in-depth of this I think that we have to click is a slideshow and then maybe we want to have probably a used later and then also we need to have let's have of featured products and let's get add so click on the select product and we have the poster fix in here we click select okay let's go back and what you can actually do is moving this above the newsletter which is really quite good okay so now I want to add a photo to the side.

so we can go right here on the left we can click select and upload the image after we click on so after we click on an image we click to upload an image and I've got this photo right here let me click as you can see it will start to upload you can Click select and now we've got a nice background image what I'm gonna to do is add some text and okay yes yeah and now you can see and what I'm gonna do is add some text on one moment, yeah and now you can see that we have a slideshow the shop will add the site link so let's go to collections okay perfect so we've got the collections in here we're going to click on save now and let's jump back for a minute you can actually say that the website is really starting to come.

together we have a logo up here which is auto-generated we have a menu we have our main hero image without text and a SHOP NOW option we've got the link we have our poster fixer which we can add to cart' and then we have a newsletter we should probably change this right here so let's jump back again click up here on the top again we are going to hit save and let's just have a quick look again and the website really coming together one other the thing I do want to mention is that if we go to the header section in here we've actually got an announcement bar.

which we can also have which is the one right here if I click on it okay this one and say free shipping on orders over $100 ok now people can see we've got free shipping to let's change this to a brown color or something and you can see it's right here that looks really good let's just have a quick look at our website which by clicking this button in here it really is looking quite nice in under about 10 minutes so if we want to create a discount that.

I mentioned to you guys a little bit earlier we can go to this discount section, you can create the discount code so let's put it something like Black Friday or as Valentine's Day as an example so we can type Black Friday discount code which is what you would share with your customers and let's say everyone who types this will get 30% off or 20% off for something similar to that.

so you can also change it to a fixed amount a free shipping amount or buy one get one free so what we're going to do is we're going to limit this to one use per customer so one customer at the time we're going to click on safe discount and there we go right now when people get into this on the checkout that would.

get 30% of their order so we just set up a website running in up to 10 minutes you can definitely do a lot of great things with Shopify in a short period of time if you want to have another tutorial let me know down below you can go to get more details about that so this was just a way to show you that you can set up a website in under 10 minutes pretty good and you should definitely do this with your own Shopify site so thank you guys this was just a quick tutorial and I try to keep that as simple as possible hopefully, you enjoyed that and see you
