How to make your first online sale


This week we're interviewing two store owners live, diving into their experiences opening their stores, social media channels they're using, strategies they've found successful, and their best piece of advice for people who are thinking about opening their own Shopify store. 

Fun Fact: Both store owners interviewed are Bold employees... and one of them is me!

Make sure you stick around until the end for my favourite quote about taking the plunge and starting your Shopify store: "Until you launch you won’t have visitors, until you have visitors you won’t have data, and until you have data you won’t know how to optimize you store. So just do it!"
