When it comes to e-commerce, a lot of the conversation centers around Shopify. With it’s clean UI and focus on simplicity, many marketers and businesses have flocked to the platform.
What if I told you there was a way to effectively utilize the functionality of Shopify with the robust features of ClickFunnels?
You’d probably think I was nuts. But, imagine how much simpler and more elegant your store could look with the help of a tool like this.
Yes, it’s true. You can integrate Shopify with ClickFunnels and take advantage of all its features. In fact, doing so can dramatically improve the usability of your online store and boost your conversion rates. So let’s have a look at how to do just that.
Set Up Your Amazon Affiliate Account
First things first, you’ll need to sign up for an Amazon affiliate account. You can do this through the Amazon website or via their mobile app. Once you’re signed up, you’ll be able to start earning a commission from any products that are purchased via your affiliate link. You’ll also need to verify your account, which you can do by linking your bank account.
Now that you have an account, it’s time to move on to the next step.
Install The ClickFunnels App
Next, you’ll want to download the ClickFunnels app. You can find this directly from their website or through the App Store or Google Play. When you install the app, you’ll be presented with a simple welcome page, which gives you an overview of the various features. At this point, you might be wondering why you should even bother with the hassle of setting up the app. Well, the app will take you to a pre-loaded landing page, which you can use to create your store. So, in a way, using the app is as simple as clicking a few buttons.
Once you’ve installed the app, you’ll see a link to your newly created landing page. Simply click this link and you’ll be redirected to the main page of your website.
On this page, you can click the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) in the upper right corner to see the apps available for download. From here, you can download the ClickFunnels app, which will give you a head start in creating your store.
Create Your Shopify Store
When you visit the Shopify website, you’ll see a big red button, which invites you to create a free store. When you click this button, you’ll be taken to a screen, where you can give your store a name, description, and set the default country for your store. After you’ve done this, you’ll be presented with a list of templates you can use to organize your product pages. To create your product pages, you’ll need to visit your store’s homepage and click the “Products” tab.
From here, you can select a theme for your product pages or opt for a multi-coloration approach, which allows you to choose a different theme for each variation of a product. You can also choose the products you want to feature on your store’s homepage.
As you can see, creating a store on Shopify is incredibly simple and straightforward. However, you have a lot of choices and settings to adjust. So you might want to spend a little bit of time familiarizing yourself with the platform before you dive in.
Customize Your Shopify Store
Once your store is set up, you can start customizing it. First, you can change the layout of your product pages by clicking the “Products” tab and selecting the theme you used for your store. You can then make as many changes as you like. When you’re done, click the “Save Changes” button at the top of the page.
As an option, you can decide to have your product pages display on desktop, mobile, or tablet devices. To do this, visit your store’s homepage and click the “Settings” tab. Here, you can change the layout and style of your product pages as well as decide whether or not to hide the button that takes you directly to the checkout.
If you decide to show the buy now button, you’ll need to fill out a little form with your contact information, billing details, and shipping details. After you’ve submitted this information, you’ll be presented with a purchase button, which will lead to the product’s page on Amazon. It’s important to point out that if you decide to show the buy now button, you’ll lose the ability to offer free shipping. So, if you’re looking for an easy way to ship items to your customers, you should look back at the earlier step and choose to hide the button.
Use The Amazon Fulfillment Center
If you have a product or multiple products that you want to sell through Amazon, you’ll need to set up an account with them. To do this, visit their website and click the “Accounts and Security” tab. Once here, you can create a new account or log into your existing one. On the left side of the page, you’ll see a big green button, which you can click to jump to the Fulfillment Center page.
This is where you can find all the information on Amazon’s services, including Fulfillment by Amazon, which you can choose for your products. Select this option and you’ll be presented with all the information you need to know about the service. To begin, you’ll want to determine how you want your products to be delivered (via Amazon Fulfillment or another shipping service). Once you’ve chosen the delivery method, you can move on to the next step.
Use The Marketplace To Find A Product
Another way to find a product to sell is to use the Amazon marketplace to search for products related to your niche. Using the search bar on the left side of the page, you can search for whatever you’re looking for. When you find a product that interests you, click on it to be taken to the product’s page. Here, you can read about the product, see the Amazon rating, and read some reviews. If you’ve found a product that looks good, click on the “Add to cart” button to go to the shopping cart page of the product’s page, where you can change the quantity of the item you desire.
On the right side of the page, you’ll see a big green button, which you can click to access the products listed on Amazon. From here, you can select a product to add to your cart or continue shopping for more.
Use The Fulfillment By Amazon To Order The Product
Once you’ve found a product you want to sell on your site, you can click the “Add to cart” button to add it to your cart. As an alternative, you can click on the “Fulfillment By Amazon” tab on the left side of the page to be taken to the product’s Amazon page. Here, you can find all the information you need about the product, including its pricing, reviews, and more.
By using this tab, you can see the various fulfillment options available for your product. Should you choose to have your products delivered by Amazon, you’ll have the option of using their Fulfillment Center, which you can learn about on their website. This option allows you to have your products packed, shipped, and waiting for you at your door. If this sounds good to you, click on the “Add to cart” button to go to the shopping cart page.
Use The Post-Purchase To Up-sale The Product
If you’ve already added a product you found on Amazon to your cart, you can use the “Post-purchase” tab to up-sale it. This feature is extremely useful for those selling beauty products or jewelry. For instance, you can take the plunge and add the product you found on Amazon to your cart. Once your cart is full, you can click the “Post-purchase” button and be taken to the product’s page. Here, you can read about the product and see the reviews. If you’ve found something that interests you, you can click the “Add to cart” button to go to the shopping cart page.
On the right side of the page, you’ll see a big green button, which you can click to continue to the payment page, where you can make a purchase or continue shopping.
