When people say the word “ecommerce” everybody thinks it’s quite complex thing to get started with or involves a lot of hard work. People think online shopping carts and all sorts of things, but today with modern technology it’s completely the opposite.
You could actually create your brand new online shop working in just 10 minutes (Yep Just 10 minutes!) and start selling.
How to start an online shop and start selling
If you know what you want to sell – that’s all right, but if you are undecided then there are two kinds of stores you can make to start your business – A drop shipping store or an Online store where you have your own products being shipped from your warehouse. A drop shipping store is pretty straightforward and can be easily made in 10 minutes and involves the least amount of work.
A store where you have your own products and ship them is a bit more involved and can take a bit longer like half an hour to build your store. First I will explain the difference between a “drop shipping store business” and a let’s call it “general store” shop.
A Drop Shipping Store Business in 2019
This is where you decide you want to open a shop/store online but don’t want to be bothered about inventory, sourcing and storing products and then physically packaging or shipping them to your buyers. What you really want to do with this method is just open an online shop and list & sell products and once a product is sold then- you just buy that product that you sold in your shop from another seller in china (alibaba/aliexpress) and put in your buyer address and it gets shipped directly to them from china. You obviously would have listed that product at a much higher price to make a commission on the sale.
You need three things to get a drop shipping business started:
3. Oberlo – App to make listing products from aliexpress to your store easy (free 30 day trial)
If you have used wordpress or (operated a blog/website like me) you know it’s one of the easiest website building software in the world and you can easily make professional looking websites just by pointing and clicking a few buttons ( my tutorial here) . Well Shopify is the wordpress for building online stores. Shopify is one of the easiest and best service provider to build an “online shop” quickly and easily and they are quite affordable too. Make sure of the free 14 day trial link I have given above and you can check prices on their website from there.
Once you register for their free trial, you will get access to your online shop and you can see that structure of the design makes it easy to do everything to get your store online. You will get familiarized with all the sections as you use the store more and more. To just a list a couple of products and get your store online doing drop shipping should not take you more than 10 minutes.
Aliexpress is an online marketplace from china which list products for sale in hundreds of niches from fashion clothing, gadgets, electronics, kid’s toys, stationery and much more. There are thousands of sellers from china selling their products on Ali express and they deliver from china to your doorstep. If you are doing drop shipping- then you will provide your customers name/address while purchasing (once you get a sale on your own shopify shop).
Oberlo is a paid app that makes it easy for you to add products from your aliexpress account to your online shopify shop. This app makes it easy to add products quickly and easily from aliexpress to your store. Once the app is installed in your store , all you need to do is search for a product (clothing or gadget what’ve) in the app in your store and it will show you the product, details and pics of gthe listing. Now just click import product and it will import the whole product title, description and pictures.
You can choose which pics to keep for your post and then just hit publish and the product is ready on your store to sell and it also shows inventory of how many are still left from the ali express seller account.
If you want – You could do all this manually with your Ali express account, browse Ali express for a product you want to sell, copy and paste product title, details, description and pics etc. and then list it on your store – but the oberlo makes this damn easy and quick. When you have to add many products to your store and you want to save time doing that, this app becomes a blessing.
Trust me with drop shipping it is best to add as many products to your store to get sales. 10 to 20 products on your shop is a good number to start with.
Both a drop shipping store and a general niche store when made with shopify, will have shopping carts and all features of an online store as they come pre- installed so you don’t have to worry about all that.
A General Store
For explaining purposes here, I will say A general store is where you will buy products or make products and then store it in your house/ garage or warehouse and then when you get a sale from your shopify shop, then you will manually package and ship the product to your customer country based on how many they ordered and where they want it to be shipped. You will need to keep constantly keep track of your inventory and order more as you need it.
What’s different from drop shipping is that you don’t need to do packaging , not storage space needed , take professional pics for products , no spending time figuring out where it needs to be sent and shipping costs etc. with drop shipping. Most aliexpress sellers offer free shipping for their products to many countries.
Design or Look of your Store
Parallax them by shopify
The design or look of your store is very important and they are some amazing free designs for your online store, just browse the free themes/templates from your store and apply it to see how your store looks. Be warned though changing templates sometimes involves a little more readjusting of logos etc. with every change – your content will always remain in store as it is but will change how it displays with every time you decide to change the look/template in your shop. So choose a good one right at the start and stick to it.
Multipurpose theme by themeforest
They are some awesome paid templates that shopify sells and there are many third party providers also that make good designs for shopify stores. Just browse shopify or then the internet and you will find them.
Collecting money for your sales is important and shopify has made this seamless, you get your shopify payment processing gateway when you sign up with shopify and so you can accept payments from all over the world. You’re automatically set up to accept all major cards as soon as you create your Shopify store. Shopify tells you if the payment method used or credit card is suspicious or dodgy and sometimes block payments.
If you’re not using Shopify Payments and you want to accept credit cards, you can choose from over 70 ecommerce payment gateways for your Shopify store. Check the list here. Businesses in Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia can accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express debit and credit cards.
You also have the option of adding other payment gateways if you have a particular preference. https://www.2checkout.com/ is another option that some shops use as their payment gateway for processing payments.
How to make sales from your online store
This is where you will know if you can make it or break it. You are the measure of your own success. As with any business it takes time and hard work to make a business successful and that is the truth. If anyone tells you otherwise there are full of sh*t.
When you manage to make sales on your store then you can just keep doing the same thing and scaling and make more sales. Test more, try more new things and make more sales, find out what’s working for others doing the same thing, test try and sell more.
Setting up shop is the easiest thing to start your online shop, the rest of the bits are the hard ones. Like getting sales is hard and this I where you need the hard yakka. Saying that, I know some of my mates who have just started a shop, got the right ads and products on their shop and are doing $100k sales a month within 6 months of starting their store.
So how do you make sales with your store – This is something that you will need to test and see what works with your product. Facebook ads promotion is a must for everyone to try, but people are finding success with INSTAGRAM product promotion via shout outs from people with large following, promotion via Google and Bing ppc ads and some have managed to get sales via pinterest as well. So test out everything, but Facebook ads is a good platform to get sales for your shop, as you can find the right audience for your specific products with Facebook audience insights.
Apparently Facebook video ads also work very well and cost less to advertise right now.
Top Advertising platform for your online store:
1. Facebook ads
2. Instagram shootouts and ads
3. Google PPC advertising
4. Bing PPC advertising
5. Pinterest Advertising
6. Reddit advertising
7. Also Twitter, linked in and other social media platforms can be tested
I would recommend that as soon as you shop is published and online, you set up a business page from your Facebook account with your store URL and start publishing relevant content and your products to your Facebook business page.
Do create an Instagram account for your business and start posting relevant pics and content to your instagram account as well. I would suggest you keep your entire business accounts active by regularly posting stuff or get a tool to automate posting stuff by scheduling post s to your Facebook page/ instagram account etc.
As Facebook and shopify work together – With a Facebook page and store you can integrate your store to your Facebook business page, so that when you add products to your store – it automatically publishes in your Facebook business page as well.

Word-press hosting for websites and Blogs
WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time and most hosting providers provide this website software for free when you purchase their hosting plan, So you dont have to buy it separately or go through a long process installing it yourself . WordPress is also knows as a CMS content management system.

If you are looking to host a wordpress blog there can be a bit of confusion, as there are two popular services and websites with the name wordpress( www.wordpress.com and www.wordpress.org ) I get this question all the time… from bloggers, entrepreneurs, small business owners
What is difference between hosting with wordpress.org and wordpress.com ?
[ The difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org ]
According to the figures fromteh top blogging software website wordPress.com, there are currently over sixty million WordPress-based websites or blogs in the world. Half of them are hosted on WordPress.com and the rest on other platforms.
About 100,000 new WordPress websites are created every day. In realtion to difference between wordpress.com and .org – the WordPress.com website hosts the site on their servers ( so its a free blog service like blogger.com), so you don’t really need a hosting account, but tehre are limitation as any free service and your blog can be banned at any time if it goes against one of their hundreds of policies that you should be aware off.
I know this is a risk you will take with “free blogging services” has happened to me with two major blog services and they didn’t have the courtesy to tell me why they banned my blog and i didn’t know why it was banned as well.
Cons of wordpress.com free blogging service
WordPress.com provides a limited amount of space and customization options.
WordPress.com does not allow you to include advertisements of any kind.
Your blog is at risk of being banned if you inadvertently break on of their rules
WordPress.org is the website that provides the software for wordpress. This wordpress software is available free from wordpress.org and can download it and use it for free. However as most hosting companies already have a 1 clickinstall in their hosting account for this free software , tehre is no real need to download it , if your buy a hosting account with one of the hosting providers.
WordPress as a self hosted blog
As a wordpress blog with a hosting account is called a self hosted blog , and you have paid for your own hosting , you are free to customise the wordpress as you wish to your needs. and then install on a separate web host (or ISP).
Extra information you can consider before making a final choice of webhost service provider
How to Pick a Good Web Hosting Service
What is cpanel ?
Cpanel – Most WordPress blog hosting companies provides a cpanel which make sit much easier to navigate the inner bits of where your blog resides, In the cpanel which is the backend of you blog admin area , you can create ftp accounts to transfer files directly to your website, change passwords and update the software, but a lot of these tasks can also be done via login through the blog interface (http://www.yourblog.com/wp-admin).
Script library & windows Vs linux hosting
This is no biggie, both Windows hosting and linux hosting does the job, though most providers have linux hosting and they do a good job. Script library is of importance if you think you will start a forum , or a email list , or a subscription blog .Many hostingservice providers provide an array of easy script installs via their backend like forums , blogs, email list software.
Personally I believe there is not much more to consider, with the exception of obvious time delays for support when choosing a hosting provider in another country vs. US hosting as US hosting is mostly cheaper and you will always get a lot of USA traffic (irrespective of which country you are based in) making US a good choice for hosting.
I have already discussed why I prefer US hosting to other countries hosting earlier ,but I do wish to stay transparent and give people who still wish to explore other options like a local hosting choice, so here are a few popular hosting solutions from CANADA, UK, South Africa , India, Europe, South America and more..
CANADA HOSTING PROVIDERS
Canadian web hosting is a growing force to be reckoned with, with many new webhosting providers recently hitting the market. We have listed a few Canadian based hosting-companies with affordable prices below.
WebHostingCanada web hosting – the name says it all! Web Hosting Canada is proudly Canadian. They have fast servers based in Montreal, Quebec and Canadian technical support – in both official Canadian languages.
Vancouver-based Canadian Web Hosting is 100% Canadian owned and operated. A solid featureset and three package options (including a spacious business plan) are backed by a 60-day money-back guarantee.
Price $7.95 a month (Canadian Dollars)
UK Hosting & European hosting
Some of the European hosting is also mainly UK hosting with clook.uk, evohosting, pacwebhosting, icdsoft being some popular hosts being mentioned around forums. Let me know if you have a favourite one that has worked well for you
Some popular companies in south Africa are Cybersmart hosting, Ample hosting, Elite host and hostking and there are still many more good ones we will cover later
It’s the cheapest out there. You just need to pay for a domain. Not recommend for a business but for a private site or blog there’s nothing wrong with it except for maybe being a little bit slower than the other packages.
Pricing: They got packages tarting with free Pick package to blue package to aqua package . The Blue basic package starts at R18 (rand) to Aqua R98 (rand)
You get a free domain (what else you want) and you can only host one website( not good) with which you get 10 email addresses(good). The 500 MB should be enough for most small websites and you also get unlimited bandwidth.
It’s ideal for a small website where you pay less than R10 a month and have your domain included in the price.(can’t go wrong)
More technical info…..
Where are the datacenters Located.
Many big companies like google, Microsoft their major data centres in different countries but they basically use their datacentres or servers for their own use. Datacentres if used by a hosting company and is based can be a benefit to you based on where the datacentre is and where you are..if you want more speedy loading times for your website for your local area or country. But if you are getting traffic from all over the world this is not important at all and you could just choose a cheap US host or then a cheap host from any country.
Microsoft’s has their mirror server in Hong Kong one datacenter….which is called HKNET… Australia bandwidth not bad at all, i can boost it like 600kb/s and USA more than 500kb/s with multithreading.
Some of huge data-centres that we believe are the largest found anywhere- range between 400,000 and 1.1 million square feet. Here are some of them
Range International Information Hub
6.3 Million Sq. Ft.
Las Vegas, Nevada
2.2 Million Sq. Ft
Utah Data Center
1+ Million Sq. Ft.
1.1 Million Sq. Ft
QTS Metro Data Center
970,000 Sq. Ft.
I hope i have provided enough information for you to choose and pick a suitable webhosting service and good luck to you – Dont wait – take action now _start a blog today!

Post Updated 13 June 2018. Go daddy is one of the biggest domain registrars in the US . Inspite of being quite well known and being one of the most popular advertisers on the Superbowl “Americas premier sporting event” they have taken a beating to their online reputation on various websites and forums. It is surprising that they still offer very competitive deals when it comes to website hosting and domain names.
I was surprised when I did a recent search and found the cheapest price for ssl security(https) with godaddy. They are definitely good at price beating their competitors.
You search online and you can get many bad reviews about Godaddy. I got my first godaddy hosting account and domain with great nervousness almost 5+ years ago, in spite of reading all the online bad reviews about Godaddy.com.
I purchased webhosting at that time from them, just because they were offering a $1 a month hosting offer, which to me which sounded really cheap. I just said to myself – what the heck and signed up – it wasnt much less to lose at that price. I id not regret it and currently hold 15 + domains with them.
I have collected and listed some awesome current gdaddy deals just below and they are some here on this websiteas well.
This hosting that I purchased was most certainly a very cheap price at that time. If I remember right, it was $1 a month hosting, and it was definite cheap compared to the other website-hosting deals going around at that time of roughly $5 to $6 a month.
So I just grabbed it and set up a few niche blogs and also an affiliate site to promote products online. If you already have GoDaddy’s hosting service, then you can use that for yourWordPress site
The niche site did well and I also made money from the affiliate website and so my initial investment was already covered ten times in that year.
So was godaddy worth it ?
Well as I was just starting new websites, I was not really tracking stuff like if they were 100% online all the time or then how slow my website was loading, but as my websites was new and did not use much bandwidth and resources everything was good and chugging along fine. They just worked well with my wordpress website.
In fact go daddy at that time already had a 99% uptime guarantee, so I never had to worry.
A little later – I also purchased Hostgator and Dreamhost hosting plans for more projects and so I got to test them out as well. I had issues with my accounts getting hacked and slow servers speed and downtime in initial years with one of them ( not godaddy).
I got emails from them, telling me that my website was hogging their server resources , when I didn’t even have like 100 hits a days , while my godaddy account was fine and no emails from them , so from that point of view surely GDaddy was a winner for me .
I’m still with hostgator and blue host and they are doing fine. As far as the other host goes , they have stopped sending me resources hogging emails, or your account will be limited etc.. So that’s definitely good sign of the hosting industry emerging with their security.
The best thing about godaddy that I like – is that they have local American support that you can pick up the phone and speak too anytime.
I always get to speak to a person pretty soon without staying too long on the line even though i am calling from overseas into US.
The few times that I called support, I was actually attended to by knowledgeable staff who managed to sort out the problem I had.
If you are looking to get a website or blog started and you are on a low spend budget, until you find your bearings – Do try one of go daddy’s cheap deals above – they will surely do the job and at a budget.
These are the basic pointers I know about the GoDaddy Web Hosting:
GoDaddy is the world’s largest domain name register and cloud platform dedicated especially to small and independent ventures.
GoDaddy gives unlimited bandwidth (bandwidth is basically how many people can visit your site at once).
GoDaddy offers quality WordPress AutoInstall.
GoDaddy has great security and restrictive policies that help to keep out all the scams and the attacks. They have acquired Sucurri and SiteLock companies in the web security world to protect their customer’s web privacy.
GoDaddy offers you 24X7 phone supports which are not common among hosting companies.
While both Bluehost and GoDaddy come with 1-click WordPress installs – Bluehost comes with the easiest one. GoDaddy provides Premium DNS and beats BlueHost on free ad money
Godaddy has online discount offers throughout the year and offer domain name registration, webhosting, SSl certificates website builder software, ecommerce shops, domain auction buying, domain parking and has a global presence in many countries with avast inventory of domain name extensions.
They have just launched an awesome offer which includes 24 of the premium studiopress genesis themes if you purchase the hosting package which is priced from $27 to $47 a month. Check out our post for more details on offer and discounts.
Most people would love to know when and how to start a blog , when they are starting on their new online journey.
Today I am writing this tutorial for you as a total beginner friendly guide to starting a website.
If you want to start a blog quickly, it can be done in just three steps, once you have everything ready to install and set up your wordpress blog. 3 steps blog
It can be done by picking a domain name and installing a blog with 1 click install , then writing your first post and just clicking publish to go live on the internet.
This wordpress themes provider is the king of WP themes and there’s no doubt about it. They are one of the best premium wordpress SEO themes that work out of the box with minimum fuss.
I have wanted this theme for many years now and I finally decided to spend the money. I did manage to test a copy of this theme previously and it did wonders, so I decided to take the plunge and buy the whole pro plus lifetime pack, including all the themes in the Genesis studiopress stable.
[Update: Studiopress has been taken over by WPEngine recently , if you want to sign up directly with WP engine- Go here] WPEngine is a premium and fast wordpress hosting provider with good tech support for your websites.
How does genesis framework work?
There has always been wee bit confusion about the framework and the studiopress wp themes and many people still don’t understand how the framework and theme work.
These themes are made up of two parts a basic core framework theme called the genesis framework theme and the child theme (Business pro , Altitude pro etc whichever theme you purchase) that sits on top of the basic core theme. Both these framework + theme you buy are provided by studiopress on every theme purchase.
What this enables is , that you can make customisations or modifications to your child theme that you purchased and it wont break or effect your website design every time word press is updated.
This also helps you to revert back to the default theme design without any problems that is – if you end up making errors with your design.
You can keep changing designs (studiopress theme/templates), but your basic core theme data in the framework theme will always be saved to your site.
Why do I need to pay for genesis framework?
No! You don’t. If you are purchasing a website theme then you get the framework free with the theme as they both work together. But if you want they have given you the option of buying just the framework as well – you may ask why?
Yes, I will answer that – studiopress is not the only company that develops themes for genesis framework and many other theme developers make themes that you can use on the Genesis framework.
The framework is known as a robust and stable framework and so there are many quality third party developers building themes to use with this framework.
If you see a third party Genesis theme you like and you don’t want to buy a studiopress made theme, you can just buy the framework and use the theme purchased from the third party. I prefer to use studiopress approved themes with the genesis framework because it know it will be vetted before it gets on the themeshop.
Studio press by itself has a lot of wpthemes designed for the framework, (in fact 35 of them) – however, Genesis has allowed third-party developers to build themes as well which has further benefitted their subscribers with more options.
Genesis Framework Features
The Genesis Framework includes the following functionality:
· Accessibility Ready
· multiple page post layout options
Layouts options of the framework & theme
This Genesis framework theme is included in your Pro Plus Purchase. When you purchase a studiopress theme, you also get the genesis framework theme.
Why Genesis & Studiopress is so good?
I don’t need convincing, I have already used Genesis themes for a couple of years and seen my keywords ranking easily and getting more targeted traffic with minimal effort. This is a very important factor for most websites.
In fact, compared to some other sites of mine, the websites with studio press-genesis wp themes started getting traffic faster, and that too out of the box without any help from adding additional SEO plugins.
I have seen one of my affiliate sites targeted traffic double after switching from a themeforest.net templates to the Genesis framework + studiopress sample theme.
The sample theme is just a basic content + sidebar theme that works with the framework. This combination is definitely recommended for affiliate/launch page/landing page websites to promote sales to your pages. Why the sample page works good for these kind of pages- because the design is minimal and fast loading and well structured for Search engine optimisation.
If you want a something a bit more fancy then you can choose any of the studiopress themes from here.
All the genesis templates are made with inbuilt SEO structure and speed of loading in mind and it delivers. Genesis supports schema.org code (needed for rich snippets)
Features that you will find in most studiopress themes
· Html5 markup
· eCommerce support
· Landing page support
· Mobile responsive
· Full width page/post template
· Pricing pages
Why the themes are so pricey?
I didn’t like it either initially myself as the pricing held me back, until I purchased a plan and see what it could do for my sites. Its pricey compared to other good themes but I realized if I am getting something that works out of the box and with less effort to rank my sites- Why not.
Genesis studiopress themes
t’s no secret that many top bloggers use this theme and it’s for those very simple basic reasons – It’s easy to rank in search engines with this framework and theme, as all you have to do is just produce great content and promote it.
You will be saving money in the long run on SEO, as I have learned from my own experience. Many top bloggers use YOAST and ALL in SEO plugin to get more granular access for SEO reasons and push it a little bit further, but in reality for me, this has worked just best out of the box with the inbuilt SEO settings.
After buying and installing this theme, all you need to do is write good content that search engines love and stimulate that content and the rest the blog/website onpage seo will do for you.
Who makes these themes ?
Studiopress themselves makes wordpress themes that are listed in their theme shop, but they now also have approved third party theme developers.
Some of them third party developers are listed below:
Large Selection of Genesis-Powered WordPress Themes
Prices for these themes range from $99.95 to $129.95 and this price includes the theme you purchase + framework.
Here is an example of what this pricing includes for the magazine template
Magazine + Genesis
· Includes the Genesis Framework
· Includes the Magazine Pro Theme
· Get Instant Access
· Unlimited Updates, Support & Sites
· Access to Detailed Tutorials
· One-time Purchase Fee
You could try studiopress by purchasing a single theme (anywhere between $99 to $129 with genesis framework) or get the plus package including all the themes. But, there’s something to be said about buying the Pro plus All Theme Lifetime Package because you don’t have to pay again. Ever.
