What is Shopify?
An amazing turn-key solution for the small business owner
Shopify is an ecommerce website platform that allows you to set up an online store to sell your goods both online and off without hassle.
With the recent addition of their POS, Shopify is a viable solution for bricks and mortar retail stores too.
Although it is a turn-key solution, you can benefit from our Shopify experts. We have both Shopify expert designers and developers to ensure your site looks great, functions as you need it to, and attracts and converts your target market! No customisation is too hard for our team.
Why choose Shopify as your eCommerce website solution?

This can include customer history as well as product listings and inventory levels. A Shopify expert on your side is critical to effective migration free from errors, lost data, or technical faults.

How easy is it? How do I add in keywords?
- How easy is it to set up a Shopify website? Do I need a Shopify developer to help me?
- How easy is it to add in SEO to my Shopify site
The answer to this common question is two-fold, setting it up can be easy but you are most likely going to need a Shopify Expert to make it convert customers and turn it into a site you are proud of marketing.
From a user-friendly perspective, Shopify is much more straightforward than Woo Commerce. We have list below are the basic steps, that certainly make it sound simple! However at Confetti Design we get customers everyday say they tried and got the bones of the site set up but just couldn’t make it look as professional enough to go live.
DIY Shopify Set Up – without the help of a Shopify designer or developer
Step 1: Go to https://www.shopify.com and click on the green “Start Free Trial” button in top right.
Step 2: Fill in the details such as your email address, your password for your Shopify account, and your store name. Note that it might take a while for you to find a store name that is available, so you will have to be very creative in deciding what your store name will be. Click on “Next” afterwards.
Step 3: Shopify will ask you two questions; ‘Are you already selling’ and ‘What is your current revenue’ Choose your answers from the dropdown. There is also a tick box asking if you are setting up the store for a client, leave it unchecked if you are creating a store for your own business. Click on Next.
Step 4: There will be a question on whether you’d like to make a brick-and-mortar store or an online shop. Select the Online Shop option and then click next.
Step 5: The next page will ask to fill in personal information such as first and last name, address (configures currencies and tax rate), and phone number. You will then need to click the “Enter my store” button.
Step 6: The Shopify step by step process afterwards are pretty straightforward. You will be asked to add a product first. You will need to fill in details like title, description, price, and vendor. You can add a few products first to test and then add more later when you’ve completed the set up.
Step 7: Select a theme for your website. There are free themes that you can choose from which look amazing and are responsive as well.
Step 8: In your dashboard, set up your domain which you can also buy from Shopify, or you can use the free one they provided.
Step 9: Activate your payment by clicking on the payments tab on your dashboard. You will also need to choose a plan and put your method of payment on file.
Step 10: Once done setting up the payment, click on the Launch Website button to make your website live.
Assuming you know what keywords you are going to be adding into your Shopify site, we will be covering what is automatic within the Shopify platform, what is a manual job and where you go to add them.
Shopify has some built in SEO Features
Shopify has a built in SEO feature that helps optimize your content, such as adding canonical tags to pages so duplicate posts do not show up on search engines. This is automatically done for you without having to edit any of these settings yourself or use a Shopify developer to do it for you!
Page titles are automatic
Shopify page titles are the default H1 tag for pages created through Shopify—avoid manually adding an H1 tag anywhere else on the page.
In order to make sure your page titles are not cut off in search engine results, keep them under 60 characters. Google consistently displays the first 50-60 characters of most webpages and always include keywords near where you want people see it when they’re browsing (e.g., at beginning). Lastly remember: use more general language for a listing instead than writing an essay or complete sentence!
Write compelling page titles and descriptions that are simple, think Grade 8-10 year old.
The copy you write for page titles and meta descriptions should clearly describe the content on each individual webpage, include important keywords in an interesting way that will make users want to click through. Make sure your writing is not only informative but also engaging so people read all about it!
Optimise your URLS
Include a keyword in your page URL. For a Shopify store, the title of a page is like the URL. I recommend that you put your target in there, but keep things short and sweet by not having too many words so people can remember it.
