Hello. Thank you for reviewing my job offer. Please read the entire description carefully as I explain specifically what I need and do not need below. I have a pre-launch Shopify store that is partially finished. I am looking for a contractor to do the following:
(1) Take me on a "tour" of all of the main functionality of Shopify. I have a basic understanding of e-commerce and its Wordpress-like format but want to understand how to use the Shopify platform well;
(2) Help me develop my store's design and layout. This will include getting graphics, menus and text in the right places;
(3) Help me become an expert in using Aliexpress and in selecting, uploading and formatting products so that they appear professional and attractive in my store;
(4) Apps - Explain to me in detail how each of the apps I use in my store (at present: Product Upsell, Improved Contact Form, Klaviyo Email Marketing, Happy Email, Trackify, Yo, and Oberlo). Please note the desired contractor MUST be very familiar with each of these apps and have used them extensively in the past on an end-to-end basis, and be able to explain to me how they all integrate with the store and work together.
Please note that I am NOT looking for theme development or customized solutions. My goal is to get the store up and running and then refine it as I go.
It would be helpful, though not necessary, if the contractor can make non-technical, business, marketing or design suggestions. I am more than open to a longer-term relationship with the right contractor depending on his or her skill set (note that some of my contractors have been with me for years and earned tens of thousands of dollars).
Please note that this is a TRAINING style engagement. I may delegate certain tasks just to get them done, but at present am more interested in figuring out what I am looking at and how to use it myself. I anticipate doing screen-sharing Skype sessions where you can walk me through click-by-click what has to happen to do a particular task. Once the store is more developed there may be opportunities for you to take over tasks directly if desired.
Thank you for your time!
