30 Days to Start & Grow an Ecommerce Business – The Introduction

Welcome to 30 Days to Start & Grow an Ecommerce Business!

I’m excited to bring this guide to you as there is a mass of information online, much of it absolutely awesome and created & published by super clever people with a wealth of experience, but knowing how to put it all together into a comprehensible step by step plan, is where I come in!

Having been in the Digital Marketing world since 2010 building audiences, courses and 6 figure sales funnels, then building a 7 figure Amazon business from the ground up with my partner, creating a Shopify store to accompany that business back in 2017 and then last year creating my ‘experiment’ store as I write about in ‘How Not To Start & Grow an Ecommerce Business‘ I can assure you I am wholly qualified to guide you step by step through this process. If you’d like to know a bit more about me, you can check out my story here.

However, I am not alone. As you’ll see, as you go through the guide, I have gathered some of the very best experts & resources online to accompany my tips & strategies to help you build your own successful ecommerce business.

Please note! You do not have to complete this in 30 days. It’s an arbitrary number, created just to give some structure to the process.

Whether you go through the steps in 10 days or 10 years is immaterial as long as you continue to move forward and enjoy the process!

Focus on the process

Over the next few days you’ll be setting big hairy audacious goals and creating a vision that excites you! But to truly create a lifestyle you love, it’s important to enjoy the journey and celebrate your wins big or small!

So without further ado, let’s get started!

Here is a rundown of the 30 Days and you’ll also see the links for each day in the navigation bar at the top of all posts so you can easily navigate your way through each page.

Please note there is the odd affiliate link scattered about the place, which means I may make a small commission on some of the links you click, although of course it costs you nothing. But 90% of the links are non affiliate. My main goal is to grow my audience and help as many action takers as possible to take control of your destiny and build a lifestyle business that gives you ultimate freedom in life.
