❤️ Imagine you could set aside ONE weekend, build your website and be selling by Monday.
❤️ Imagine if you knew CONSISTENT online sales were possible and simple, every single day.
❤️ Imagine you knew exactly HOW to grab your ideal client's attention and KEEP it.
❤️ Imagine you knew EXACTLY what to do FIRST, then next, next, next until the LAUNCH of your own website.
❤️ Imagine you only sold things you LOVED making and your customers LOVED them even more.
❤️ Imagine you knew how to get found with FREE traffic streaming into your website.
❤️ Imagine feeling free and confident selling instead of guessing, hoping and wishing for sales.
❤️ Imagine giving up the constant Googling and Youtubing for the answers you want about Shopify and instead knew exactly what you needed to do to reach your GOALS.
A one weekend program designed to take you from,
'what the heck am I doing?' to
'Watch this. I know how to rock my eCommerce store!' in just 24 hours.
For years I've been building beautiful, functional Shopify websites,
that speak to my client's IDEAL CLIENTS about what THEY really want.
I've taken my years of training as a Shopify employee,
paired it with years of experience building user-centric websites
+ my love for training others how to do this themselves
to confidently sell their favourite products to their dream clients without
stress, overwhelm or worry.
I believe that no matter your tech skill,
your current business
or what you sell,
you can create and build a website that you love
but more importantly that your DREAM clients will ❤️ !
24 Hours to Launch is what will get you there..
1. Building your website is not half as hard as you think it is in your head: We tend to make things bigger, scarier and more daunting in our heads than they really are. Following the right steps and taking the plunge is the hardest decision.
2. You are way more tech-savvy than you think you are: Seriously. Just trust me on this one. Having worked with 100's of entrepreneurs, if you are on this webpage, you have the skills to get started.
3. Your products are amazing: They're more amazing than you think they are and not sharing them keeps them out of the hands of people who will love them.
4. While you're contemplating, others are doing: Those who take the necessary and required actions aligned with their goals will see the results they want.
5. You are solving problems, not selling products: It doesn't matter what you're selling, all that matters is that you're solving someone else's problems. If you aren't solving a problem, your product won't have a buyer.
6. Marketing your website doesn't need to be exhausting: You don't need to spend all day on Instagram or thousands of dollars on Facebook ads to bring in sales every day.
7. You do not have to sell to everyone: Trying to sell to every single person will land you fewer sales. Discovering exactly who you're solving a problem for will bring you greater and more rewarding success.
8. Perfection is often the death of greatness: Getting stuck in a loop of perfectionism will get you nowhere, slowly.
9. Your website isn't about you: Realizing that you're building something entirely for someone else creates freedom and the fresh eyes that you need to create a website that sells.
10. The cost of not knowing something is way more expensive than any program: Investing in supplies and equipment will help you build your products but your own education and knowledge is more important.
I help Makers, Artists and Artisans build
their online stores on Shopify every
But my truth is that I used to struggle daily
with getting my own handmade business
up and running on Etsy.
I Google'd, Youtube'd, joined online memberships
& did all of the things I was being told to do and
felt like I was being torn in 90 different directions.
I generally dreaded learning how to get found in the way
I was being taught. (Honesty Alert: I hate Instagram)
I often found myself HUSTLING harder and finding
very little, if any return.
After a year, I started losing the passion that I had to
start my handmade business.
How many more Facebook ads did I need to start getting a return?
How many more edits did I need to make to my SEO to start competing?
How could I REACH my ideal clients?
Who the heck were my IDEAL CLIENTS?
Then I found Shopify. And I actually applied for a job! I loved it.
As soon as I joined the team, I immediately fell in love
with the platform, with the people and most importantly
with learning HOW to run a successful online business.
Once I started implementing the training I received at Shopify
to my own handmade business, something they strongly encouraged,
I realized how quickly and easily others could use this information
in their own handmade businesses.
I didn't NEED Etsy anymore. I was finding my ideal clients and sending
them straight to my Shopify store.
So I started helping other Makers get off of the rollercoaster of Etsy
and jump into supporting their own brand on the best eCommerce platform around,
while making MONEY to support it. This became my new normal and favourite thing,
helping other Makers find online success with Shopify!
Without knowing who you're talking to, you'll be talking to everyone and while that may sound great it's one of the most unpredictable ways to build a website and sell your products. Talking to everyone means you're not serving your ideal client and potentially missing out on more sales. Defining who you're talking to means less work for you, easier sales and doing LESS work.
With your business you're either doing things yourself, hiring someone to do it for you or not doing it at all. In this lesson you'll learn how to be the most effective and knowledgeable source for your OWN business success. You get to be the one that makes the difference, no matter your tech skill or previous knowledge of the Shopify platform.
It's time to set perfectionism aside and dive into action. This is where you'll learn how to take your knowledge of your ideal client and the Shopify platform and combine them to create a website that your customers can't wait for you to launch.
Creating your goals can sometimes feel like guesswork or like nice dreams and aspirations. In this section you'll discover how to make goals and learn what it will actually take to achieve them based on statistics, then how to take appropriate actions to reach them.
I get that that's a big promise and I may be slightly biased,
but I honestly believe this to my core.
I have spoken to hundreds of Artists, Artisans and Makers and have watched them hold themselves back from taking a leap with their business because they do not know where to start.
Yet, with the right mindset in place, with the right guidance and proper training each and every one could build their website in just 24 hours.
And not just any old website, but a website that SPEAKS and SELLS to their ideal clients' needs and wants.
In 24 Hours you can have...
Dive right into my screen with me as I guide you through the world of the Shopify Admin, with in-depth how-to videos and tutorials on everything you'll need to set up your online store.
These easy to follow guides can be viewed on your desktop, phone or tablet and provide you with the motivation to step outside of the way things have always been (busy, overwhelming, frustrating) into using this time strategically to get the most accomplished with ease. As I said, easy peasy lemon squeezy!
My workbooks are designed to guide you through the processes you'll need to identify and then speak DIRECTLY to your ideal client.
With these two bonus modules, you'll learn how to work more effectively and learn some insider tips directly from Shopify. You'll also learn how to build and implement discounts into your store that make your customers come back for more.
You'll gain 10 days of direct access to my private group chat to ask me any questions you may have about Shopify or the content in the course. From Monday to Friday I'll be available from 10am to 4pm EST. Have a question about writing a product description? Need help coming up with a styled photo? Ask away and I'll be here to help you!
Shopify moves and evolves quickly and with that, so will updates to this program. Not to worry, as things update, no matter when you purchased you will also get updated information and data to build your website with freedom and ease.
"Melissa was instrumental in helping me launch my new website.
The program was an amazing experience and I HIGHLY recommend it. If you want to get your Shopify website up and running quickly, this is the way to do it!"
- Janet -
"We've had our Shopify site for 3 years now and I have not put much attention into... I was ready to get our act together but was feeling completely overwhelmed and not sure where to begin. Melissa was so down to earth and explained things in a way that was easy to understand."
- Angelina -
"I wouldn't consider myself a technically savvy person. 24 Hours to Launch was easy to follow & went in depth for what I needed to learn but wasn't too heavy to follow. I'm so excited to have my site ready to share and I know my ideal client will love it too!"
- Sarah -
*Includes 10 days of access to our private Group Chat for ongoing support.
Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm EST.*
Q: I already have a Shopify website and only want to update it, is this still worthwhile?
Absolutely! If there's even a bit of doubt or uncertainty on whether you've covered all of your bases 24 Hours to Launch will help you understand where those fears are coming from, acknowledge them and help you discover what to do next. Then you'll have the guidance to make the appropriate changes and address anything that may be missing while also providing the insight into designing your NEW website from the perspective of your ideal client.
Q: I don't have an Etsy store or I'm just starting my business, can I start on Shopify?
Yes, but please consider it may take you longer. Etsy, Facebook and other platforms can be a great place to get started, garner some attention for your brand and discover some new fans, however it's never truly "yours". I've seen plenty of people start on Shopify and succeed. I'll be honest though, it takes a certain stick-to-it-iveness and staying ON THE PATH to find that success. A clear vision of your ideal client is an absolute must and 24 Hours to Launch will help you find that to build a website your ideal customers will love. It will be up to you to use that knowledge to then go out and bring them into your website.
Q: I sell drop shipped or Print on Demand products, can I still take the 24 Hours to Launch?
100%. Although this program is developed with Artists and Artisans in mind and does reference Etsy users, anyone who wants to build a website can utilize the tools and structure of 24 Hours to Launch. It is not solely for handmade products. I use this system for every single website I build; from artists, to drop shippers, to service-based entrepreneurs.
Q: What if I only have one product to sell?
That's a great start! Whether you have 1 or 1000 (or no products, yet) you can still build a really great targeted website. It will also make building for your ideal client way less muddled, with fewer distractions. A solid foundation is the key to success.
Q: What if I need or want more support after the 10 days?
If you would like additional 1:1 or group support after the 10 days, please email firstname.lastname@example.org . We have lots of different services option.
*Please note, I don't offer personal support via email or FB Messenger but I am here to help you find the best solutions to your needs.*
