Cha-Ching!

What?! Show me the money!

Can you imagine the look of disbelief on my face when I woke up yesterday, turned on my computer in saw 8 Sales on my New Shopify Store?

That’s 7 sales in the prior 24 hours, and 8 Shopify Sales in 2 Days! Whoa!!!

Here’s the detail::

I’ve had this online store open for one month now, and prior to the past 2 days the sales were only trickling in. But you know what they say, to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result is pure insanity, isn’t it?

So I decided to put a new ad out and write new copy. Made the ad pop more, changed the language a bit, and added some cool new and exciting pics. I then added a new exciting product for kids on my store.

Still I was not expecting all so much. Then BAM!

I suppose this might surprise some here. Everyone thinks I’m just the guy who writes some motivational blog posts and asks a few thought-provoking question, which I do.

I don’t usually mention “the behind the scenes” work for what I am doing, but I do manage to do a great deal of work online with my businesses and websites while still remaining active with WA. The work is virtually non-stop, and I “squeeze” the posts in here and there in between.

Shocking , isn't it!

Yes my dear friends, I will continue to write motivational blog posts related to business, my journeys, and then even the odd personal story once in a while.

The message here for everyone is to keep on going, and above all to keep a fresh open-mind into trying new things and to experiment using new approaches.

The BEST way to learn is not to over analyze, learn something and then just DO IT. And if something doesn’t work, try something else and CHANGE IT QUICKLY. You need to have skin in the game.

You next sale (or FIRST) is only a day away.


Wishing you all the BEST on your income producing roads to discovery!

Thank you! I'm creating a new website now of my passion about 10+ years ago that has touched my heart heavily to do this week. I'm going through Certification Course 2 to work on it better as I go. I have all my material, it's just putting it all into place and FOCUS as it requires a lot of metaphysical, energetic work I am re-awakening inside me--my heart is ready for this again!

Have a blessed evening!

Thanks! Keep experimenting with new products Darleen, different price points, and see what will work for you. Many times we are not succeeding with something simply because we have neglected it.

Curious....
Any reason why you are doing shopify e commerce rather than affiliate marketing and is it the drop shipping model?
Also, what training resources are being used to get a shopify store up and running?
Thanks
Paul
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
This is a straight up retail store. Affiliate marketing is something i will also get into but which I've put on the back burner. Too busy right now with my other businesses.

Thanks for your comment Paul.

Nice to see you Patrick, haven't seen you for a few posts, I was beginning to worry!

YES indeed, BOTH definitely do mix P, don't believe the BS that ALL active people here on the platform are just playing "candy crush" and not working on their businesses- many here remain active 1-2 hours per day because we want to help others, BUT make no mistake - we are working hard and long hours on our online businesses!

Wishing you the BEST, And as always, Thank you for your continued support my friend!

Thank you Kaju. I have put off ambassadorship for a long time since I got here. Now I am at that point that it can't be helped, I have to keep moving. It's really taking on more responsibility but it naturally happens at a certain point in our journey otherwise we won't grow. Thank you Kaju. I really appreciate it.

I wish you many more sales. I think once it starts it keeps increasing as long as you keep doing what you are doing.

All the success to you.

Was shopify easy to set up, I was trying to do the woo commerce training that Chris had put up and had it all done apart from lessons 4 and 5 and then I deleted the wrong test site one day and lost the lot. I can't get it to work the same now so was going to try something new. xxx

Congratulations Kaju!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay! You had to beat me and get 8 since I got 7 huh? I am happy for you!

I was just getting a nasty head cold yesterday and I was so annoyed because I just couldn't get as excited about my sales as I normally would have been since I was sneezing and nose dripping and attached to a Kleenex box! I am feeling better now though and your picture of the monkey is actually how I looked too even with the cold when I saw the sales on Amazon! Really, that is literally how I looked.

Yahoooo!
Reply
jetrbby80316 Premium
Ha ha Jessica. I didn't beat you, my 8 sales were over 2 days, your 7 were in one day - but still pretty good I'll take it!

btw, I am very happy for you too.

Had to use that pic as I was certainly the monkey too, that was my face all the way! Couldn't believe it. Woo hoo!
