You distinguish yourself from the sea of competitors by creating great content. I'm not joking either. Creating high quality, highly relevant, engaging and SEO enhanced content is arguably the most important marketing exercise you can undertake. It takes a while for your content to be indexed by Google, but once it is the effects are cumulative (the more content you add, the more traffic you generate) and persistent (unlike online advertising, which offers no long term benefits).

Most people think that the journey of starting an online store first starts when they sign up for Shopify. But successful online stores take a few earlier steps to help them achieve long-term success. The idea stage isn’t simply about having an idea and executing on it, it’s about building a foundation. Here are a few ideas for your ecommerce checklist:
In the spirit of Spring Cleaning and the tax season deadline, I figured I’d give out an audit that people might actually appreciate. We perform audits for prospective and existing customer eCommerce sites to evaluate where they might be losing sales. We have developed our Website Audit Template specifically for eCommerce websites, and it has been extremely helpful so we wanted to share it with you. To get access to your own copy of the eCommerce site audit template (spreadsheet form), just click the text link or fill in your email at the bottom of the page to subscribe to our blog and get instant access!

Among the best lead generation strategies around today, one is optimizing your landing page content. It is important for your business, and will allow your customers to reach your content any time. If your landing pages aren’t optimized, you will lose out on valuable business, which you can’t afford. By optimizing the landing pages, you will be able to generate more leads. Unbounce has a great guide here. Interestingly, I would go straight to Chapter 14 first to understand whether the landing page is right for you or not!


Short of time and looking at a quick checklist to ensure you are on the right track to a successful lead generation campaign? Over the years I have consulted for several startups and also deployed lead generation techniques that work. This is our own checklist of ideas and points we follow to either brainstorm and come up with more ideas with the rest of the team. Use this checklist in cases where you have started several campaigns and noticed the results or conversions are not coming through, or if the leads have suddenly stopped, then look also at ensuring you are up to date with newer strategies or techniques that are coming out to market.
Some people like extensive checklists while some would rather have short ones. Some are satisfied with using words while others might be more visual and would prefer adding images or graphics to theirs. Whatever style you have or however your mind works, the beauty of creating a design in Canva is you can customize it to suit exactly what you want or need. Personalize the list with your ideas, use colors to distinguish or highlight certain sections. Completely remake a template or just edit the parts you want–it’s all completely up to you.

You must make your site as easy to use as possible. Potential customers won't waste their time trying to work out how to use your site. If it's not immediately obvious how they can get what they want, they won't do it. Not only should the UI (User Interface) be optimized, but the site itself should be designed to make it as easy as possible for visitors to convert to customers - i.e. it should be optimized for conversions.
This digital Take 5 safety checklist is designed to help mining workers and contractors minimize health and safety risks and hazards. It should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete. The checklist asks the user to confirm they have received training, are aware of safety processes and have actively identified hazards and risks. Complete the Take 5 by providing a digital signature.
These are what the user will see on the front end of your sales funnel. ClickFunnels also provides other advanced elements such as surveys, progress bar, rates tables and development bars. These are used to push a client to sign up or put in an e-mail address. Almost all aspects in ClickFunnels can be tailored and users can change typical homes like background color, fonts and margins.
Installing Oberlo on your store allows you to find products that you can start selling the same day but without having to buy inventory upfront. As Oberlo is the most popular product sourcing app in the Shopify App Store – and because, you know, we are Oberlo – we’ve decided to break down the process of setting up Oberlo as well.
