Follow A Proven Step By Step Process To Starting A Successful Online Store And Becoming Your Own Boss

Chances are, you found this website because you’re tired. You’re tired of working at your day job. You’re tired of having to drag yourself out of bed every day to spend 8 hours at a place you don’t even like. You’re tired of having to answer to someone else.

After all, it’s about time you called the shots and became your own boss. It’s about time you set your own schedule. It’s about time you took charge of your life. Bottom line, wouldn’t you rather be spending more time with your kids or your friends and family?

Most people think that starting your own business is too risky. If you read the paper or watch the news on television, you’ve probably heard by now that 90% of small businesses fail during their first year of business. And if you pay attention to this statistic, you’re making a huge mistake.

Why? It’s because most of the people who fail don’t know what they’re doing. Most people who fail jump right in without doing the research. Most people who fail have no clue how to market their business.

Honestly, anyone can put up an online store website, but the difference between success and failure is your ability to drive targeted customers to your website and your ability to complete the sale.

Dispelling The Myths About Business Ownership

mythsIn the next few minutes, I’m going to let my existing students in the class do most of the talking.

I know many of you are probably skeptical about your ability to start a successful online business.

But as you read the student stories below, keep in mind that these students signed up for my class without knowing anything about website design and had absolutely no experience running a store whatsoever.

Now they all run online businesses that they are proud to call their own!

So please, try to forget everything that you’ve read in forums, what your family and friends have told you, and especially what the media has conditioned you to believe… If you are willing to put in the work, then you too can run a successful online business with the proper guidance and education.

And bottom line, what most people really need is someone to hold their hand through the process and strong support from a community of like minded entrepreneurs. So if you’re ready, my students and I will now squash all of the myths about starting your own business.

Myth #1: Starting A Business Is Too Risky

Most people think that starting their own business has to be an expensive and risky endeavor. While it is true that many successful entrepreneurs self-fund their startups by racking up massive debt on their credit cards, it definitely does not have to be that way.

In fact, my wife and I launched our first online store while both working full time jobs. And with just $629.90 initially invested into the business…

We managed to earn $102,113 in profit within the span of a year from our niche online store

Thanks to the Internet, starting your own online business is as inexpensive and risk free as ever. One of the most amazing aspects of running an online business rather than a traditional brick and mortar store is that you can reach hundreds of millions of potential customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

By setting up a computer to manage your storefront for you, you can create a business that can be run for as little as $4.95 a month while freeing up your time to do things that you actually enjoy.

The best part about opening a store online is that your business will continue to grow as word of mouth travels about your store and you become further entrenched in the search engines. Every year since the launch of our online store, our business has increased in the double and triple digits.

Myth Busted!

Lob signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started his own online store selling Cupcake Stands And Towers on a very limited budget.

Here’s what he has to say about the course.

Steve’s course is the real deal. While there is no course out there that will guarantee your success, Steve’s program will give you all the knowledge and support you need to succeed. When we think of the value that Steve’s course has provided us, three main things sick out:

1) Easy to follow step by step training: Steve has created a great training system that provides you a step by step process to getting your eCommerce e store up and running quickly. His course goes through the beginning stages of searching for a niche all the way to making your first sale and beyond.

2) Relevant and up to date: eCommerce is an ever changing industry and Steve helps his students stores stay relevant by constantly having weekly updated training material so you never feel you are losing your edge.

3) Community and support: When you sign up for the course, you not only get a training system but you get access to Steve’s private forum and weekly live sessions where you can ask any questions that you may need. For us this has been a godsend.

My wife and I signed up for a course but we also gained a mentor and a friend. We highly recommend Steve’s course.

Myth #2: Putting Up A Good Looking Website Is Too Hard

Most people who are new to the web are afraid of the technical aspects of launching a website. In fact before I started my online store, I used to think that starting a website was too difficult as well. Then one day, a close friend of mine showed me his website where he was selling photos online. I was so thoroughly impressed with his online store that I asked him who he used to design his website.

When he told me that he did it all by himself, I was astounded because he did not know anything about web design. The truth is that all of the software is already written for you and it is completely free and easy to install. You can literally launch a full blown and fully functional shopping cart website with just a few clicks of your mouse.

Even though Brandon knew very little about website design prior to signing up for Create A Profitable Online Store, he created his own online store selling Washer Toss Games all by himself!

Here’s what he has to say about the course.

I wholeheartedly recommend the Create A Profitable Online Store Course that Steve has to offer and I found it absolutely invaluable when starting my own online business.

Steve helps you avoid 90% of the mistakes that newcomers usually make because he walks you through the process step-by-step of starting your business; from picking a niche, to building your website, to marketing your site and more.

Just the videos and course materials alone are worth the price of the course, but Steve also makes himself available to help you individually when you need it. You also get access to the wonderful community of other students in the course to share ideas and experiences with.

Even if you are completely tech averse, there are many fully hosted solutions available now where all you have to do is sign up and they pretty much do everything for you. Several ecommerce solutions offer a drag and drop interface where you can create your store with just your mouse. It’s not expensive either. Fully hosted ecommerce solutions start at just $25 a month.

For the course, I’ve already taken the time to perform thorough evaluations of all of the popular shopping carts out there, and I will provide you with the proper guidance on what ecommerce platform to choose depending on your specific needs.

Myth #3: Finding Products To Sell At A Profit Is Next To Impossible

It’s true. Finding products to sell by using the search engines and the Internet is difficult to do. Why? It’s because the Internet is full of scammers and middlemen who pretend to be wholesalers and are just waiting to rip you off.

In fact, looking online for products to sell using the search engines is probably the worst way to find wholesale vendors for your online store.

The truth is that most legit wholesalers don’t advertise online and rarely advertise at all. They don’t advertise because they don’t want every little mom and pop store contacting them to ask to sell their products. Instead, most wholesalers only want to deal with legit, honest businesses that can sell in sufficient volumes.

I will teach you how to find legit wholesalers for your store and how to distinguish the true distributors from the scammers so you can buy your goods at rock bottom prices. For those of you who do not want to store your own goods, I will also teach you how to run a dropshipped online store without having to carry any inventory whatsoever!

Sean signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started his own online store selling leather working supplies. And in just a year and a half, his store now makes six figures per year.

Here’s what he has to say about the course.

Steve’s course helped us to expedite the process of getting our online store up and running. Instead of having to figure out what to do next and stumble around between different things to improve, his course provides an effective and efficient path to launching your business.

Myth #4: You Need To Hit A Home Run With Your Business

When most people think about starting a company, they immediately think about the Googles, the Facebooks and the Amazons of the world. The reality is that you don’t need to set your sights on the next big thing. You don’t have to aim for the fences or create the next multi-billion dollar company.

In fact, the Create A Profitable Online Store course advocates the complete opposite mindset. This course is all about teaching you how to create an online business that suits your lifestyle so you can spend more time with your friends and family and focus on doing the things that you love.

If your end goal is to earn enough money so you can quit your day job and be your own boss, you only have to go for a base hit. Your business doesn’t have to be the next big thing and aiming small doesn’t preclude you from making a lot of money either.

Myth Busted!

Today, our online business selling customized handkerchiefs for special occasions caters to a very small niche yet it is extremely profitable.

In fact, our online store brings in much more money today than both of our day jobs ever did combined. We’ve also been featured in many publications such as Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings and Real Simple magazine. Recently, we were on the NBC Today Show.

Running the business requires only a few hours of work each day.

And most importantly, it allows my wife to stay at home with the kids, call the shots and set her own schedule.

The key to running a successful ecommerce business is to find a niche that has just enough demand to suit your income goals without being too competitive. And a significant portion of the course is dedicated towards helping you find the right products to sell.

Myth #5: You Don’t Have Enough Time To Start A Business

I’ve got two kids, work a full time job, run a blog, run an online store and run a course on how to create an online store. But you know what? I’m not superman. In fact I’m quite lazy. The key is to break your tasks down into small pieces that can be accomplished in 20-30 minutes.

Opening an online store is all about doing a little bit each day and setting your sights on your long term goals. If you were to start an online store today, I would say that you should be willing to devote at least 5 hours a week if you are serious about starting your own business.

Joining the course will make sure you stay motivated. As soon as you sign up, you will instantly become a member of an exclusive group of like minded entrepreneurs. Through the discussion forums, you can bounce your ideas off of other store owners and share your thoughts and experiences in a highly supportive environment.

Tina signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started her own online store selling Childrens Wall Decals. Even though she has 2 kids under the age of 4 and a full time job, she still managed to create a beautiful looking online store in a short period of time.

Here’s what she has to say about the course.

Steve’s course has been a God send! After taking the Create A Profitable Online Store course, I was able to launch my own online baby decor store in weeks instead of months.

If you value your time this is huge! Plus it helped me evaluate and decide on a what products to sell, choose an ecommerce software, and find a drop ship supplier with absolute confidence!

I would not hesitate to recommend Profitable Online Store to anyone considering taking the plunge of starting an ecommerce site. The ramp up time it saves is invaluable and it helped me avoid 90% of the mistakes that I would have made on my own.

Myth #6: Marketing An Online Store Requires A Large Budget

You absolutely do NOT need a large marketing budget at all. The big media conglomerates don’t control advertising anymore. In fact, there are many effective methods of marketing and advertising that are absolutely free.

In my course, I will walk you through many different ways to market your online business for no money at all. In addition, I will teach you how to achieve a high search ranking for your website in your targeted niche.

The beauty of running a store online is that you can easily track the effectiveness of all of your marketing campaigns. I will teach you how to set up a Google Analytics account to measure all aspects of your website so that you can easily fine tune and improve your conversion rate.

Finally, I will turn you into a pay per click marketing expert by teaching you the most effective way to use Google Adwords for your online store.

Craig signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started his own online store selling Martial Arts Uniforms. Craig made his first sale within the first week of launch without spending a penny on advertising by leveraging social media and various free online tools..

Here’s what he has to say about the course.

For any e-commerce beginner, this is a great course that gives you all the information you need without having to read several books. The online seminars are great for up-to-date info as well. Highly recommended!

Myth #7: Getting To The Top Of The Search Engine Rankings Is Too Hard

When it comes to search engine optimization, most newbie webmasters are at loss when it comes to increasing their search engine exposure and getting backlinks for their site. In fact, there is a common misconception that large ecommerce companies have an unfair advantage when it comes to search because they have powerful websites with a huge staff of SEO gurus.

Myth Busted!

The truth is that any website can rank in the search engines if you know what you are doing and are willing to put in the work. Our online store currently ranks #1 for 28 keyword terms, #2 for 25 keyword terms and on the front page for countless other terms.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to boost your search engine rankings and I will walk you through the entire process.

Myth #8: You Can Figure Everything Out On Your Own By Surfing The Web

While there’s a ton of information freely available on the Internet, trying to digest all of the different strategies, opinions and the ‘latest and greatest’ ways to start a profitable online business only leads to information overload.

The “Create A Profitable Online Store” course only teaches you what you need to know and leaves out the fluff. It’s simple, intuitive, easy to follow and just what you need to launch your store without making any silly mistakes.

More importantly, how many so-called experts out there actually run their own online store and practice what they preach? Why would you want to follow someone who doesn’t already walk the talk and have a highly successful online store to prove it?

Once you sign up for the course, I will be available to answer your questions should you ever get stuck. In addition, you can share your experiences with other students in the class through our online forums.

Myth Busted!

Tracey signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started her own online store selling handmade beaded jewelry. One of the biggest reasons she signed up for the course was to interact with other like-minded entrepreneurs and to share her ideas. She also wanted a place where she could ask questions and obtain solid business advice.

Here’s what she has to say about the course.

I was lucky to find Steve as a mentor when I started the journey to start my own business. I took his course, which provided a huge amount of incredibly helpful, on-point information. I was able to use the steps in his course to logically and systematically start my own online business.

Steve answered questions and provided help and encouragement through the whole process. I learnt so much! and now sales are coming in. Starting my own business was a dream of mine for a long time. Now I am working with indigenous artisans in Ecuador, introducing their handmade, traditional goods to an international marketplace.

My little fair trade shop is making a difference in the quality of people’s lives. Its really amazing! Thanks Steve!

Myth #9: It’s Too Hard To Sell Without Relying On Ebay Or Etsy

While it’s very easy to get started selling your goods in marketplaces like Ebay or Etsy, it’s very difficult to make a decent profit. Not only do Ebay and Etsy take a good chunk out of your profits but it’s also difficult to make your storefront stand out among thousands of other shopowners. In addition, these services can and will raise prices and change their policies at a moment’s notice.

So instead of putting yourself at the mercy of the Ebay’s and Etsy’s of the world, you should be asking yourself why you are building up a shop that is controlled by someone else. Do you want to be in control of your own destiny? The only way to do this is start your own web property. So stop relying on the Etsys and the Ebays of the world. These sites are good for getting your feet wet but will prevent you from ever growing.

And most importantly, you don’t need these sites to sell your goods online!

Myth Busted!

Sandy signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started her own online store selling personalized kimono robes. Because it’s easy to get lost among the thousands of other shops on Etsy and Ebay, she decided to take charge and start her own store!

Here’s what she has to say about the course.

So many aspects of running an online shop were foreign to me when I first considered the idea. I assumed it would take a lot of money and technical skills. On top of that, I didn’t even have the first clue what to sell or where to go to source products. Nothing about it was comfortable for me.

Steve’s course streamlined the process of getting up and running. Concepts that were incredibly complicated were now fully explained. It is amazing how simple things become when there is someone to explain it to you.

The class has an intuitive layout that will take you from knowing nothing, to having a live, fully functional store. When I signed up, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to sell or how I would find products to sell. Yet, it only took me a few months (while holding two jobs and parenting a toddler) to get me from nothing to actually carrying inventory.

The course even covers marketing and advertising so you can learn how to attract and retain customers. My store went live almost 5 months ago, but I still review videos and attend office hours to continue to grow the business further.

My favorite aspect of the course is the personal interaction with Steve and the other students in the class. For me, a community is invaluable when it comes to starting something new. Watching countless stores launch and seeing everyone grow has kept me motivated and provided knowledge that I would have missed out on if I was going it alone.

Overall, Steve has given me the ability to take something that I thought was a far off dream and turn it into a reality. With the knowledge and the desire; it could be a reality for anyone out there. Steve will certainly provide that knowledge.

Myth #10: You Are Too Young Or Too Old To Start A Business

After running my course for quite a while now, I’m continually surprised by how students of all ages are able to pick up and understand the material so quickly. A handful of my students are well over the age of 60 years old. And at the other end of the spectrum, I have students that are as young as 14 years old.

It just goes to show that if you have the desire to learn, then it doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know anything about web design. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never started a business before. Most of the students that join my class don’t have any experience at all and it’s amazing to discover what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it.

Myth Busted!

Nik signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started his own online store selling handwoven bracelets from Ecuador. And believe it or not Nik is only 14 years old!

What’s interesting about Nik is that he started his store in order to raise money to help pay for school and to fund his trip with Me To We, an organization that sends youth to help with aid projects relating to clean drinking water, education, sustainable income, and health care in developing countries around the world.

This is an email that I received from Nik’s mom about his experience.

With the guidance of your videos, I helped my 14 yr old son set up a shop called HandwovenBracelets.com – he didn’t have any money to spend on it and could only afford to accept payment via Paypal. He set it up hoping to raise money for a humanitarian trip he is going on through Me to We (a sister company to Save the Children).

He set it up a couple of months ago but didn’t really do much marketing, so he hadn’t been getting any hits and had no sales at all. This week, the deadline for the final payment loomed, and suddenly out of the blue he got an order for 800 bracelets and made enough money to cover his entire portion of the trip.

The very next day, he got a call saying that he had been granted a scholarship to help pay part of the trip fees, but he asked that it be given to some other kid who needed it more, because he had earned enough money through his shop.

Myth #11: You Have To Be A Computer Whiz To Manage A Website And Server

If you are completely new to creating websites, managing an online store might seem like a daunting task. And most people have this misconception that you either have to figure things out all by yourself or pay someone a hefty sum of money to help you out.

This is completely false. When it comes to creating an ecommerce store, there are many solutions out there that encompass all different skill levels. As part of the course, I will help you discover which solution you are most comfortable with depending on the level of exposure you want to the technical aspects of running a store.

If you want to learn more about how to run a server and how websites work, then great! If you just want to get your store up and running and focus on selling, then that’s fine as well.

For those of you who don’t want to deal with the tech, there are full blown ecommerce solutions available that pretty much handle everything for you for as little as $25/month.

Myth Busted!

Ron signed up for Create A Profitable Online Store and started his own online store selling fabric wall decals. Ron did not want to deal with the technical aspects of running a store so he went with a fully hosted shopping cart solution.

Here is what he has to say about the course.

When my wife and I decided that we wanted to start a new online business we started by doing some research online. Although my wife has a background in web design and I have a background in marketing, neither one of us had a clue about how to start an e-commerce store.

We got frustrated looking online for answers because it’s time consuming and we just felt like we were getting more confused. When my wife found “How to Create a Profitable Store Online” I was hesitant at first to spend the money for the course but I’m so glad that I did.

I was expecting to download a manual and watch some videos online, but what I received far exceeded my expectations. What I value most about the course is the live weekly office hours where Steve provides fresh new material and he takes the time to answer everyone’s questions.

I was also able to email him when I had questions and he always responded promptly. When someone starts a new business venture (especially in a field that they are not very familiar with), it’s a blessing to have a mentor guide you through the process.

The knowledge and guidance that I received from this course has been invaluable and I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking to start an online business.

The “Create A Profitable Online Store Course” will walk you through the entire process of how to open a profitable online store.

Because the course covers every aspect of how to run a profitable online store, it is designed to cater to both brand new entrepreneurs and existing online store owners alike.

New Shopowners Will Learn…

For Existing Shopowners…

Currently, I have many students in the class who started their own online shops prior to signing up.

If your store is having problems with getting traffic, marketing, ranking in the search engines or converting customers, this course will help you improve your sales.

Many existing shopowners come in with the misconception that some of the early stage lessons in the course may not apply if you already have a store and this is partly true. After all, if you already have your niche and vendors for your shop, why would you need to learn more about it?

But in reality, a lot of the aspects of running a profitable online store are intertwined. For example, if you have chosen to target extremely competitive keywords, your search engine rankings will tend to be very poor even if you are a link building master.

If you are sourcing your products from middlemen, your profits will tend to be lower. If you’ve picked a niche that is crowded, you will need to do some extra work in order to convert customers at a high percentage.

For students with existing shops, I schedule a full video website critique to point out the areas of improvement for their existing site after they’ve had a chance to review the course materials. All reviews are recorded, include custom feedback about their shops and are available to be reviewed at any time.

For Entrepreneurs Outside Of The United States…

Currently, I have students in the class from all over the world including Canada, England, South America, Asia, Australia and even Saudi Arabia!

The beauty of the Internet is that the concepts of selling online are not affected by geographical boundaries. And outside of the module on “Making Your Business Legal”, all of the material will apply to everyone no matter where you live.

As long as you have a connection to the Internet, you can start an online store!

Why You Should Sign Up For The Course

When it comes to launching any business for the very first time, you’re going to encounter many roadblocks along the way. The Create A Profitable Online Store course will save you time and heartache by preventing you from making silly mistakes and set you on your path to profitability as fast as possible.

Let’s face it. Every business is different and will have its own unique set of challenges. While the videos in the course do a great job of teaching you how to run a profitable online store, it’s impossible to cover every possible business scenario and there will always be certain aspects of your business that ONLY apply to you.

That is why it’s crucial to have access to a real live person to help you with your own unique set of challenges. As part of the course, you will be invited to our live office hours where you can ask your questions up front or live on the call.

Also during office hours, new lessons are presented on a regular basis to ensure that the course material never goes stale. As an example, the search engine optimization module has been updated many times to address the constantly changing nature of search engine algorithms.

Rave Reviews And Testimonials From People All Over The World

I’ve had an overwhelming response from people ALL over the world who’ve had only good things to say about the course. Here are just a few comments from real people who have gone through the course materials.

I can personally attest to Steve’s course and his commitment to his students. He’s genuinely concerned with our success.

But in all honesty, there is work evolved here. This isn’t an overnight, set it and forget project. There’s lots of trial and error and you are forced to became a jack of all trades and master of most. However, we have not come across one single issue that Steve’s coursework or guidance (on the forums and weekly office hours) has not helped us find the solution to.

He stays current on the constantly shifting SEO landscape and Google’s frequent updates and relays that information to us swiftly.

I could go on, but I’ll end with a message to those who’ve entertained the thought of starting their own business online – there are lots of resources on how to launch a business but most do not paint a complete picture. Steve’s course does. Again, highly recommend. Feel free to contact us via our site if you want more details.

When we decided to sign up for the course, we really hesitated. Because it’s not a $39.95 purchase—it’s a bit of an investment. Of course, we realized that it was still a bargain compared to other sources of education (our local University offers a 15 week class on starting a business that costs $2,000 and really just focuses on stuff like SBA loans, finding retail space, etc. Not what we needed and way more money). But we had to make sure we were serious before we spent the money.

When we got the stuff, we quickly realized how comprehensive the course is and were thrilled (and terrified that there was so much to learn!) We felt like just the videos and the 400 page book were worth every penny of what we paid.

And though some of Steve’s info IS available out there online, it’s his perspective and experience that makes the difference. Google AdWords is one example. Google has a thorough explanation of how to set up an account, how to find keywords, etc…just like Steve. But it’s easy to let Google take charge of your campaigns, which can be really costly. We narrowly avoided that mistake thanks to Steve. And BensonBowties—thanks for being willing to share your story with the class.

And that’s where even more value comes in. This forum, and the many students who are willing to share their stories (both successes and tribulations) has been invaluable. We’ve learned, by watching students post and other students (and Steve) respond, how to avoid pitfalls that others have had to suffer. And we’ve also learned from your successes by trying to figure out how to replicate what you’ve done to fit our stuff. When we were customizing our site, we poured over all the student sites and found so many wonderful things you’ve all done; then tweaked things to fit our niche and store. We also got encouragement and support when things were starting to look bleak.

The community that Steve has built here (and with the weekly phone calls, which our schedule doesn’t allow us to participate in, so we watch the videos later) is invaluable. The access to Steve’s experience and perspective and his willingness to be so transparent with everything from his goofs to his sales numbers is amazing. And the students! The mentoring we’ve received here (both direct and indirect) has been such a boon to us as newbies.

As we gain experience, we’ll pay it forward and try to participate more in this forum in order to give our advice to the newbies.

So, thanks Steve. Thanks for creating such a thorough, comprehensive course. Thanks for offering one-on-one support and continuing to add valuable content weekly. And thanks for building a community where we can help each other, and learn from each other. I don’t know how you decided on the price of the course, but I’m glad you set it where you did because we could never in a million years be able to afford what it’s actually worth

Great resource for any online business owner. Steve quickly responds to all my questions and gives amazing feedback.

What I love most about the course is support and advice I get not just from Steve, but all the other students.

Can’t tell you how annoying it was to be posting questions on other online business forums/courses and getting no response. Steve is reliable and supportive.

With a family and a demanding full time job, I needed a course that allowed my to go at my own pace. Steve’s course enables me to work on my website at my leisure.

I can access Steve’s video tutorials whenever I want. I also like the breadth of topics in the course. Steve walks you through every step necessary to get your store running successfully.

He is also very responsive to emails which allows me to bounce ideas off of him just about every week. Finally, and most importantly, Steve’s course has given me enough technical knowledge to create a professional website which I deemed impossible without any technical web skills.

This is our second on-line course and does not compare to the first course we took. The first time around was far more expensive and did not provide this level of detail or assistance.

Our questions are always answered, most times within 24 hours. Steve is very detailed and explains each step thoroughly. He even added extra videos to clarify questions we have had during office hours. He goes above and beyond to make sure you understand.

The videos and materials include step-by-step from, finding your niche, product sourcing, setting up your store, website optimization to marketing and much more. He uses his own online store to show real live examples. He is very generous with his personal stories and information.

Finding Steve’s course was just what my wife and I needed to start our own e-commerce site. We had no experience with e-commerce before but the “Create a Profitable On-line Store” course walks you through every step of the way.

In six months and working hard on the site, we were able to build an attractive, functional site. Steve is constantly adding fresh videos, giving advice on selecting a niche, answering questions and critiquing student sites. There is even a membership forum where students share their experiences and learn from each other.

Steve has critiqued our site and with his suggestions, a few months and our hard work, we know we will have our own business that will meet our goals.”

Steve’s course has been a God send! After taking the Create A Profitable Online Store course, I was able to launch my own online baby decor store in weeks instead of months. If you value your time this is huge! Plus it helped me evaluate and decide on a what products to sell, choose an ecommerce software, and find a drop ship supplier with absolute confidence!

I would not hesitate to recommend Profitable Online Store to anyone considering taking the plunge of starting an ecommerce site. The ramp up time it saves is invaluable and it helped me avoid 90% of the mistakes that I would have made on my own.

Steve’s course has been invaluable to me in starting my online business. It was great to find such insightful and comprehensive guidance on launching an online store all in one place. I am not technologically savvy, but Steve’s course provided clear, easy to follow steps on building a website even for the tech averse. I especially liked the way the course provided alternative solutions depending on how “hands on” you want to be with respect to the technical aspects of creating an e-commerce site.

The marketing and SEO sections were also invaluable. I had no idea how many inexpensive, yet effective ways there were to market my online business until I read the course materials. I highly recommend taking Steve’s course. It has saved me a tremendous amount of time and has given me the confidence to start my own business that I would not have had otherwise.

“If there is ONE person I trust when it comes to teaching how to create a profitable online store, it has to be Steve Chou. He is one of the rare people who walks the walk and can teach the walk.”

“Lots of people want to create a business online. The web is full of people talking about this process, but a smaller smaller group is actually *doing* it. Steve is one of those people. I just got done reviewing and reading his “Create a Profitable Online Store” and I can say – with absolute certainly - I’ve never seen, nor heard of a product this thorough and this effective for starting your own online store. Steve walks the walk and teaches you how to do the same, step-by-step.”

“I have followed Steve’s blog for a few years now and have always respected and learned a great deal from his articles. However this course on how to build a profitable online store is simply incredible! It is not only the most in depth course on building and running an online store I have seen but it also provides you with the essential business basics you need before you even get started. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to sell a product online.”

“I have been following Steve’s blog for over a year now. As someone who is a bit less than knowledgeable in the realm of all things business, I still find his content easy to follow and apply to my own online business pursuits. I was EXTREMELY impressed by the amount of content included in this course – it covers everything from choosing your niche, finding the right products, the ins and outs of setting up the store itself, legalities, marketing, SEO, and so much more. This course will walk you through everything you need to build your online business empire from scratch with minimal frustration of having to find other sources for details. And if that’s not enough, then you get the accompanying checklists, spreadsheets, and supplementary material to further guide you along your way.” Kristi Hines

“I’ve been doing business online for more than 10 years and, although it seems so simple that everyone can do it, I know it first hand it isn’t. One of the first difficulties you’ll hit is your huge competition. If it’s so “simple” that everyone can do it, well, expect that everyone WILL do it. And once you get caught in this daily game of getting market share, attracting customers and managing your inventory, you will soon face a wall.

And that’s exactly where products like Steven’s guide are really kicking in. When you look at a course with 400 pages about creating and maintaining an online store, all you get to say is: “Why didn’t I know about this before?”. The answer is simple: because there wasn’t such a course before.

Steven guide is incredibly detailed, grounded and useful. It’s not a compilation from other books, it’s based on his hand on experience with his own online business. And it shows big time. If you’re in this business, I honestly recommend to search no more. You just found a great guide. Go for it!”

“The most difficult part about setting up an online store is…well, everything! Where do I start? What do I do? What do I sell – and how do I get customers so I can actually make money, and avoid being stuck with a garage full of inventory nobody wants?

Finally, there’s a guide that answers all those questions in a way that’s easy to understand.

There’s no guessing, no “hoping” it’ll work – Steve gives specific recommendations on exactly what to do to get your store up and running, and walks you step by step through exactly how to set up an online store. All that technical “stuff” is taken care of for you – rather than wasting weeks researching it, you can get the benefit of 4 years Steve has spent researching and testing everything for you in a real life, high volume online store.

One of the most gut wrenching things about starting an online business is how often people set up websites, and nobody comes – no customers, and no sales. Fortunately, Steve covers that in detail – by the time you finish the niche selection exercises, you can be confident that you’ve done your homework. The material is tight, focused and well written – but that’s not the best part.

The single best thing about the way Steve explains everything is that he’s making 6 figures a year with his online store – but it wasn’t that long ago that he was making nothing. He really gets it, and he never talks “over your head.” For someone who’s just starting out, this is absolutely priceless: he walks you through step by step exactly what you need to do to get started, and makes it easy to get answers to all your questions about generating an income with flexible hours and working on your terms.

If you’re looking to generate an income online, but aren’t sure what step 1 to start an online store even is then this is the guide you have been waiting for.”

When Steve contacted me to take a look at his course, I started off my reply as “I don’t know if my readers are into being entrepreneurs…” But with Steve’s track record of offering solid advice regularly on his site, who else would I refer to if anybody was ever interested in opening up an online store?

With that in mind, I agreed to give him my thoughts on the material and as soon as I started reading the course, I was blown away by the amount of detail that it goes into. From administrative details such as which legal structure to create for the store to online marketing to tips on reducing customer support calls, the guide goes into just about everything you will ever think of for an ecommerce site.

I found the course extremely useful as a fellow internet entrepreneur. I could only imagine the benefit an aspired online store owner could get from all this.

And to top it all off, Steve is planning to run webinars where he will be answering all our questions. What else can you ask for?

The only thing you have to do is take action!”

What Would You Pay To Gain Access To This Step-by-Step Course On How To Build A Successful Online Store?

You’re probably wondering how much it would cost to have access to such a powerful step-by-step guide, hours of detailed videos and live instruction. And granted, similar courses and seminars normally cost an arm and a leg.

If you were to attend a weekend eCommerce seminar, it might cost you $1500 for just a few days of instruction. If you were to receive private business coaching from an instructor, it might cost you $700 an hour.

Because this course contains a comprehensive tutorial of every aspect of what it takes to open and run a profitable online store, there are literally hundreds of hours worth of knowledge contained within each module. If I were to charge you by the hour for every hour of content in the course, then the cost would be ridiculously high.

The truth is that I want to make this course available to as many people as possible and help you create your own online store in the fastest and easiest way possible.

Seriously, opening an online store has made such a meaningful and powerful difference in my life that I want other people to have the same feeling of success and independence.

So here’s the deal…

For the most committed students who want live instruction as well as comprehensive course materials, I’m offering the full course deluxe package for only $699.

At only $699, this is less than the cost of a single hour of private consulting and you’ll make the money back in a hurry once you successfully launch your online store. And the beauty is that you can take the course over and over again and review the material as much as you would like at your own pace.

Most Importantly…Does The Course Really Work?

Here’s a very small sampling of the success stories in my class. Today there are over 600 students in the course and the number of profitable online stores continues to grow!
