Hi, Ross!

I have been blogging for 5 months by now and followed precisely a pattern Kyle taught: two informational or how-to posts and one review. Of course, it is very labor-intense.

Maybe it will be smarter instead of having just a blog theme (free or not), to use a Shopify theme where I actually can have a store and a person can see everything if he/she would like? Now even if they click, it goes either to the Amazon or another site.

In other words, would it be great to blog and have a store?

Please share with me your wisdom. I would sincerely appreciate it.

Thank you!

I have not used shopify before, so I am not qualified to speak about the service.

However, what I think is the bedrock of online business, particularly, affiliate marketing is offering help. Or a perception that you are offering help and this is where posting informative contents becomes crucial. That is my style.

Even though the frequency of my posts is not fantastic and I don't recommend it, I am happy with what I am doing. I only have to post more content, but an informative ones.

I wish you the best in whichever style you choose.

Hey Ross,

Having never used a Shopify theme before, I have a question.

When making changes like this, the next time Shopify updates their theme, wouldn't your change be overwritten making that line reappear once more; and if so, can you create a child theme to protect your changes made (like when using regular Wordpress themes)?

Wordpress, Differs from Liquid.themes. Shopify Is a standalone system much like WordPress.

It's E-commerce based, easier and more functional for those looking to strictly sell e-commerce items. The free liquid themes provided will always have that appear there unless removed.

I moved to make themes for Shopify after I opened my 3rd store, it was another great source of income.

Hope this helps,

Its worth a look my friend, Take it a step further, I have a ecommerce site dedicated to hats.

I now can host a few of my amazon affiliate links under my actual ecommerce site, so those still wanting a hat but maybe not mine can now roam to amazon and I can still pickup a potential conversion.

The trick to online is finding a few suitable means of income generation and making them overlap in a few instances, or programs even.

Hi Ross, don't mind if I ask you a couple of questions here. If I have a Shopify store, should I blog within the Shopify platform or blog on a Wordpress site and send people to the Shopify store to buy? Are you saying that I can apply for Amazon affiliate using my Shopify store?
