In less than 48 hours I launched a brand new niche e-commerce website focused on products available to make your upcoming Valentine’s Day even more special for you and your loved one. The shop, Show Your Love Shop, currently features 30 different products with more being added daily. This is half experiment and half serious business.

I say that it is half experiment because this will be a test to see how well different marketing techniques work to market a site with about only a month before the holiday. Also, it it is a test to see how well these different products might be able to sell. The site is based on the Shopify shopping cart system, which I will discuss more in another post.

This is also half a serious business venture because I had to put about $30 behind it so far to create and launch it. Shopify is only free to a certain limit (10 products) and I needed to have more than that, so I had to upgrade to the basic plan at $25, adding in the domain name, I have spent just over $30 so far – hopefully I can get a few sales and recover that amount.

So, I encourage you to check out the site, maybe pick up a thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift for your special someone, and give me some feedback about the site.

With only about a month before the holiday, I would love to hear any marketing techniques you can think of to get the site out there and seen!

    Do you have the actual physical products for your shop, or is this more of an affiliate business?

    Shopify looks cool, i want to try it. I want to do it as an affiliate type shop, though. Let me know. Thx!

    Hi Missy, I have some of them in stock physically and then the rest are drop shipped for me. Shoot me an email and I can tell you a little more about it and may have an opportunity for you depending on what you are looking to sell.
