How I Made My Online Store With $0 in 2024

what is up you guys I am the CEO of bful and today I'm going to teach you guys how to make a free store completely free you do not have to pay any monthly fees or sign up or give your card information this is literally like if you're wanting to test your handmade products you want to test a Drop Shipping Store you want to test just literally anything this is the way the only thing that you do need is just a good way to promote which through Tik Tok Tik Tok literally promotes it for you I haven't posted in like 2 weeks you get to this point where like you don't even have to post Tik Tok will keep showing your post and almost like snowballs and you don't even have to really be on a like tight post schedule to get views and to get people on your site so today I'm going to show you guys the basics and just walk you guys through the process of creating this free website I think my website looks pretty good and it does the job I do not believe in spending bunch of money on Shopify and Wix when you're first starting out there's really no reason to it's better to invest that money that you're going to be paying monthly into your product so you can have nice products or have nice shipping supplies or have nice packaging so let's jump right into this video and I will show you guys how to create your free website in under 10 minutes all right you guys so we are going to start off on just my website itself so I just want to show you guys how my analytics looks and how useful this this can be free I do pay $10 a month to have more items but you have all the same features even with a free account account so if you take a look at my analytics I just want to show you guys my analytics I started this business in August and I've only had it for 5 months now in August was when I first opened my Tik Tok page and I promoted only from Tik Tok I do have an Instagram for my business but it's not as useful as Tik Tok and I just have I do have a lot of followers on my Instagram but that's only because it's my old account it was like my old personal account that I switched to makeup account which Then I then switched to my business account which I don't recommend doing I recommend just starting a brand new Instagram so you do not have issues with algorithm or anything like that so going ahead here so you're going to so you can see my business was super duper popular in September because that's when I had more viral videos along with December as well so I made from five months I made $244,000 that is not profit because you have to remember all the shipping supplies the products that I bought and the materials that I used to make some of my products it all adds up so you do have to remember that's not the actual um how much that you actually made so we'll go to my orders the orders are here the products are here you can edit your products in different ways so you can kind of see like how you can set things as sold out you can set of how many products you have so yeah I don't even have 25 products but I do pay $10 a month which I think is so affordable even if I say I don't make any sales for one month like that's only $10 whereas Shopify and Wix they charge so so much so like you don't want to lose money you can also add discount codes as well so let's go into I'm going to log out and we're going to just do this together so we're going to just start a brand new shop together so you're going to sign up click the sign up button here and they're going to show you pricing literally just five products free no credit card needed click sign up free then you're going to put in your email address I'll just put in my spam email gmail this one might even be used so you're going to put your email your password and I'm just for this purposes I'm just going to put bful backup at bigcartel.com so you guys will see the shop URL will be bful backup at bigcartel.com I know that's lawn but don't worry you guys can actually change this it's I think like if you want your own.com I will show you guys in the next video you can get your own um like Doom literally for like $10 for a year and and you don't have to have that like even anyways if your link is in your bio on Tik Tok people really aren't going to be worried about how it looks like the link like if they really want to buy it they will go and buy it like and to me personally this looks more professional than an Etsy store and ety takes more fees from you so if you're promoting your own business use this I I just don't understand how people don't have a shop this is literally the easiest way so you can add your products you can pick and customize your theme here you can set up your checkout literally everything's here for you it's super duper easy to use so I'm going to show you guys how I made my website so I'll show you guys how it looks and even though I have a doom you can still do at bigcartel.com and it will still come up the exact same way so you'll always have that URL so this is how my website looks I'm actually really happy with this I have seen Shopify stores that don't even look as good as this so just because you have you're paying a bunch of money for Shopify doesn't mean that your products are going to still come out looking good so I really do am happy with how this looks so you can see how I set up my theme this theme was free it's included in the free um plan as well so you can have it in the free plan my Wi-Fi is so bad in here so I'm very sorry but obviously this would load just fine it's just my Wi-Fi in this room is horrible but anyways you guys can see all my products I love how they all look super Square it's all even you can see what's on sale and what's sold out it just looks really nice to me I'm really happy with bigart health I have no interest in starting Shopify because this makes the money that I need to make so this is completely fine you can either link your PayPal or your stripe account which I never used stripe before so I just made a new stripe account super easy to make so you can customize your theme I'll show you guys how I customized my theme to look really nice and clean so let's go to the so you can add a slideshow so you can pick whatever pictures that you want to add the slideshow for and then let's see you can add your Twitter Facebook Tumblr Instagram Pinterest URL as well which is super cool so let's go back up so the theme that I used was the neat theme it's of course included in the free um version of Big Cartel so then once you have that you can add a slideshow so let me go back and for video purposes I'm just going to look up a background on Google [Music] so that's going to be like your slideshow and then you're going to add your you can add a logo here so right now it just says your name once you get like a logo customized you can put the logo there it looks really professional so I like the white look I'm very basic and I just like black and white so you can um change the fonts as well here you can choose an
