Coach’s Store Building Service
Hire the Store Coach Team to Build Your Store For You
Why Use Coach’s Store Building Service?
Building an online store the right way takes A LOT of time and requires A LOT of writing. Our ecommerce training course teaches you everything you need to know to build your web store yourself… but knowing and actually doing are two very different things! Besides all the “technical stuff” like setting up your category structure, creating your product feed file and keyword-optimizing your meta tags, there’s simply lots and lots and lots (and lots!) of writing to do! If you want to have any chance of getting ranked well in Google, virtually every single page on your site (your home page, category and sub-category pages, brand pages and every product page) needs at least a couple paragraphs of unique, “hand-written” textual content. (Like we said, lots of writing!)
Care to skip out on all of that? Well, so did dozens and dozens of other Store Coach Members! That’s why, at the behest of our Members, we created Coach’s Store Building Service. Personally overseen by the Coaches, our store building team will build your store for you… and we’ll build it fast! Build-out packages start at just $199 and typically take no more than a week or two! Think you might be interested? Take 3 minutes to request a quote. There’s absolutely no obligation to hire our team, so you might as well get a quote!
That’s completely up to you! There are several things we can include, but instead of trying to fit everyone into a “cookie-cutter” package, we leave it up to you to tell us what you want to include in your store build-out. When you request your custom quote, we’ll ask you to tell us which of the following you’d like…
A Professional Store Logo
No one wants to shop from a place that appears to be run out of someone’s garage. If you’d like to brand yourself as a true competitor in your market then it’s essential that you get yourself a professional store logo. A good-looking logo will make you look like a major player in your market and will also make you more memorable for repeat customers. As part of the store building service, you have the option of adding a professional store logo at a discounted price from our regular price if you were to buy one separately.
Home, Category & Product Content
Having unique content throughout your site is just about the most important thing you can do to make your pages appealing to major search engines like Google. Without it, they will have little to no reason to reward you with top rankings. When you order your store from us, all of the content that you get will be 100% unique and original. You can choose to have us write your home page content, category page content, and even all of your product page descriptions for you. Your quote will be dependent upon whether you have us do the home page content, the category pages & product pages, and how many of each you plan on having.
Standard Support Pages
Although support pages tend to be somewhat generic from site to site, it’s important to have them on your site for a number of reasons. We have built over 50 eCommerce sites ourselves and developed MANY more for our clients and have created very good support pages that we use for all of our stores over the last few years. For a very nominal fee, we can include all of these support pages for you. By the time we’re finished, the only additional support page that you may want to create yourself is an ‘About Us’ page.
Buying Guides and Articles
Store Coach suggests that every new store has at least 5 articles or buying guides. These guides should be linked to from the home page, category pages, or even product pages. When you order articles or buying guides to go with your store buildout we will do this interlinking within your site automatically for you. Articles written by our Contentastic.com team are $14.97 for 500-word documents. Articles or buying guides purchased as part of the Store Building process will be given a discount off that price.
First impressions are everything. When a potential customer lands on your site, you literally only have a couple of seconds before they’ve made up their mind whether they’d even consider buying something from your site. Although having a slideshow isn’t for everyone, it can definitely add a lot to the look and feel of your site. We suggest adding a few slideshow banner images to the home page of your site to make a good first impression on the customer. These banner images could feature products, talk up a seasonal sale, or mention your “amazing” shipping & returns policy.
The Store Build-Out Process
1. Get a Quote
The first step is simply to request a quote from us. We will have you fill out a form that asks for basic information about your selected niche and suppliers, what elements you’ll want to have included in your store and how many categories and products you plan to have in your store. When it comes right down to it the number of each thing you order is how we determine our quote.
We’ll deliver a ‘tentative bid’ to you within 1 business day and a member of our team will be in touch with you either by phone or email to explain the whole process in detail. We say ‘tentative bid’ because after doing this for several years now, we know that things will change. If you accept the bid, we will have you pay for approximately half of the store up front. When we finish your store we will determine the final number of products, categories, and other elements of your store to determine the final price owed to us.
2. We’ll Build It
As soon as your first payment is made, the Store Building team will get right down to business. All of the store building work is done right in-house so there is no need to worry about non-native English speakers working on your store. Content is absolutely our number 1 priority and we would never outsource this important element of your store buildout.
A manager (likely the person that will be in touch with you from the very beginning) will be over your project to oversee every element of the store building process. This will be your go-to person in case you have any questions. Please keep in mind that you may not see any work done on your store for large periods of time. This is because much of the work is happening offline and only makes sense to update when large pieces of data are ready to upload. If you don’t see any work being done for a while, don’t worry. It’s all part of the plan.
3. We’ll Deliver It
Depending on the size of your store, it will be ready for delivery within 1 to 3 weeks. No store should ever take longer than this. When the store is ready for delivery we will notify you that the store is complete and what the total price is going to be. Again, we have to wait until this point to give the exact quote because the total number of products, categories, articles, etc could have changed by this point. You will have 1 full business day to check over your store and make sure everything is in order and to make final payment on your store.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Anything not specifically mentioned on this page will not be included in your store buildout. This includes customizations to your template.You will be required to choose your own template OR give us the go-ahead to choose a template for you. For extra customizations please use our template customizations service as soon as your store has been delivered to you.
