You're looking to grow your Shopify store, my friend. You're in the right place. I help Shopify store owners, like you, get more from their store: more sales, more traffic, more email subscribers, and more repeat customers. Book a call with me to increase your conversion rate, improve your checkout, fix your products, and talk marketing and email marketing. I've owned three Ecommerce businesses (two on eBay, one on Shopify) and currently own and run a Shopify store selling digital products (90%) and physical products (10%). CALL AVAILABILITY Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 1 PM to 3 PM Pacific Time. Because I protect my free-time fiercely. I can't accept calls outside of those hours.
Don't even think about monetization yet. You want to focus on first starting to capture this month's traffic - even just 1% - as email subscribers who you can continually message and Market to.
Once you have someone as a subscriber, you can now email them a dozen times over a few weeks promoting your affiliate offer, increasing the chance that they'll convert -- after all, who is more likely to convert? Someone who just read a post or someone who opted in and received a dozen trust building emails promoting a product?
If you have an email list built off of this traffic you could even promote multiple products over time! If you have three compelling offers, you can pitch all three in sequence, with breaks for education and information.
You're right to want to monetize this audience. First and foremost: you want to capture this audience as subscribers to your email list.
