ShopWorks builds and sells ready-made niche researched ecommerce businesses. After we’ve completed our research, we create a great domain name and build a website around it.

Once a customer chooses their business and joins ShopWorks, we work with the client to ensure they feel confident moving forward. ShopWorks provides a step by step ecommerce consulting and training program. During the consulting process we go over every area we know you need to be trained in to run a successful ecommerce business.

We also offer custom website packages. This is where you come to us with your idea or concept and we take your idea from conception to completion. We essentially build for you a complete ready-made business in a box based on your idea.

After you’re all setup and earning revenue, we still provide 24/7 support so you are not left out in the cold. For as long as you’re a ShopWorks customer, we are here to help.

All businesses cost money to get started and maintain. Here is an estimate:

Website hosting: We have partnered with onward.com.au and for the first 12 months we provide you with free web hosting. After 12 months, the cost of web hosting is $114.95/year

Web hosting is the foundation on which your business (website) sits. A website cannot exist without web hosting.

Domain Name: The domain name for your website costs $9.98/year

Free Call Number (optional): up to $120 per year

Address / P O Box (optional): $80+ a year

Marketing & Advertising: you set your budget for this but we recommend spending at least $350 to $550 per week.

The difference with marketing money is the more you invest, the better your return should be. The more customers visit your store, the more sales & revenue you will make.

It all comes down to the amount of orders you receive and if you’re holding stock. For drop shipping, it is approx 3-15 hours a week. If you’re holding stock, you need to factor in the time required to process those items.

As soon as we have secured the suppliers and loaded in the products, you can start marketing the site right away! This could take 2-8 weeks depending on the product information upload time frame.

You do, and ShopWorks gives you the tools to do so. During the Training Process we teach you how to work the back end, check orders, add categories, add content, add pages, etc. The only area we don’t consult on is web design. We do not go over coding, how to design sites, how to change the design on your site, etc. You will need a web designer to do this part.

You will find it is very easy to work the back end. That is why we choose this particular cart. It’s very user friendly and extremely easy to use. If you need changes to your design you would contact your designer.

Drop shipping is quite a simple process. Once you get an order from a customer on your ShopWorks designed website, you send it to your vendor. The customer paid for the order and the shipping when placed with your website. The vendor will then fill the order and ship it directly to your customer. The vendor charges your credit card on file. This process allows you to hold no inventory and run your business from anywhere in the world that you have a phone, computer and internet connection.

Within 24 hours, ShopWorks will provide you with access to the Training Hub.

Of course! ShopWorks encourages our clients to continue to grow and expand their vendor list, as well as, their product collections. During the training process, we teach you how to research, contact and work with new vendors as you grow your business. We show you how to find new products and suppliers without having to attend trade shows.
