    I know what I want in my store and this video shows me just what I'm looking for in a site template. My store will have colors that match the vibe of my products and services.

    Thank you so much for all your informative content!! Can you also talk about SEO Yoast for blogging as well?! I watched your video on marketing and you covered it, but it was so brief and fast, it was difficult to comprehend especially for a first time user.
    I watched your tutorial and started creating my blog a day ago.
    I barely know how to use PowerPoint so I'm not too savvy with computers and your tutorial helped me immensely!
    Lastly, my blog is about social media addiction/overuse so I haven't linked any Facebook, Instagram, etc icons on it yet. Do you recommended I still link social media icons or is is possible to get traffic without them (I figured most likely not)
    Once again thank you!l

  • Jennifer Dalton

    Greg! Your tutorials are awesome! Within Woocommerce, when you add a product to your cart, an ugly green box pops up showing user what is in cart. How do I change this color??!? It's awful and I've been through everything imaginable, code, custom CSS, etc and I can't seem to change this option.

  • Larry E

    Thank you for your kind and patient tutorial. I would like an online store that is relatively easy to make developer changes, great product display and description and easy purchase capability.

  • Frank McKinley

    This is awesome, Greg. Does this work for selling video courses, books, and coaching packages? If so, then my store would be the most inviting place for writers to make their dreams come true!

  • Cori Leigh

    Greg – Thanks for creating this tutorial! Absolutely beautiful!
    My online dream store would hopefully look like this theme and tutorial video!

    1.It would be attractive to look at. 2. Fun for my visitors to shop in.
    3. Easy for my visitors to navigate creating a pleasing shopping experience.
    4.Loaded with features and images to encourage a shopping spirit!
    5.Have features like what I see the Flatsome theme has.

  • Mario Litano

    Thank you Greg! My dream store would look very much like this tutorial with my small ecommerce brand products. I appreciate the work you do thanks again

    Hi Greg,
    For your tutorial, you don't use child themes, but if I use the child theme will it work following your tutorial.

  • Calvin Lawrence

    "What would your dream online store look like?"
    I want a store that allows the customer to immediately see what I have to offer. With maximum 2 clicks they should be able to browse and select their items for purchase. Next the payment process should allow them to pay by credit card or PayPal.

  • Andria MacDonald

    My dream online store would have all my shops on one webpage. That way I can hand out one business card and get everything under one easy umbrella.

  • Andrew Bridekirk

    Hi Greg. Thank you for making this tutorial. I followed your one previously and enjoyed making a nice website. I am currently following along with this tutorial. I bought the theme but am adding in my own images specific to the site I want to design. My question is regarding the SLIDER. everything appears different on phones in particular and Im trying to centre a product with text over it so that it appears well on all devices. At the moment the image is sometimes cut off or badly off centre on phones especially. It looks good on computers but bad on smaller devices. Any ideas?

  • Zainab Marzah

  • wesley geiger

  • Oliver Hoody

    Hi Greg,

    you made a great tutorial and it `s very very helpful to me.I have a very critical question to ask you,does the Flatsome be able to command or control the Password Strength Settings of woocommerce registered function? Because the woocommerce Password Strength Setting was so stringent and difficult to customer.If the Flatsome did`t have such functions,could you please recommend a good plugin or tool or methods to me?

    Thank you .

  • Alexis S

  • Alexis Macatula

    I'm only 15 minutes into this video out of 5 hours, and I find this video extremely awesomely informative. I wish I could like this 100+ times! Thank you for your time and effort. I'm sure it takes a very long time to put this video together.

  • ogochukwu aguba

    hello, i really find this so helpful. am about starting up and with your teachings i think i can find my way. can you be my mentor as i start to build my web store. i stay here in Nigeria.

  • Jynkx

    I would like to use this tutorial but with a another theme, is that possible??? Because i have downloaded some themes and i really don't know where to start…

  • CaptnCynical

    Greg, great tutorial. What would you recommend to do with the extra demo pages. I hate to delete them because I may want to look at how they were constructed but they clutter the Pages list.

  • Greg Narayan

    I felt pretty goofy/silly/awkward doing my first youtube interview, but I hope it's worth it to show guys how to not only make a WP website (which every old tutorial does) but how to actually sell and live off an ecommerce website. That business knowledge is so necessary these days!!

    Hi Greg, thanks for making this video! ? I just started watching it, but I wanted to stop and give you first, as I see that the video is lengthy ( I'm going to 'binge' watch it this weekend ?).

    I literally was just mentioning to a family member yesterday that they should build an 'updated' (someone built their first store on some crappy platform ? that's not really functional) eCommerce store for a product line that they are selling,

    We were discussing whether or not to build it ourselves with woocommerce, or go with Shopify. I think woocommerce is a better choice. It seems more versatile and newbie friendly, would you agree (if they follow your video ?)?

    Let me know your thoughts and comments on this matter, as I value your opinion. ?

  • Dhanushka Herath

  • Roberta Pate

    I need help.  I've followed directions. I got registered at hostgator for 24 months, received my log-in email from them.  I was on to word-press instrustions number 6.  I click on it and it just sends me to a blank page, (minus the blue sidebar) I am not given a prompt to select my (only) web-site … any suggestions?  I have a word-press account already, could this be the problem (it is not a store though.)  I just don't know what to do.  Thanks for any help, it is truly appreciated.

    Hello Greg
    Thank you for your lovely tutorials. I am one of your subscribers and I have watched your video and set my website using the Sydney theme. However, I want to sell products as well as Blog through my website and I have now noticed that you have used the Flatsome Theme. Could you please let me know whether the Sydney theme is the wrong theme to link to Shopify, or what are your suggestions?

  • Nguyễn Ngọc Tú

    thank you very much. so i have a problem about add google map, could you show me how to do that. thanks again! from vietnam

  • Roar Khan

    Hi Dear Greg can I do this course with another theme + elementor. I am only interested to do the tutorial. No plan to sell online. Yeah maybe in coming future charge clients to make websites for them. Basically I can't aford expensive themes at the moment. I have generic question why we need different theme for different purpose. Can't we use multipurpose theme for different types of websites. thanks

  • Kathleen Luttrell-Hawthorne

    I've been so frustrated throughout the whole process of building my website. I had the basic "shell" done and need to add the store. I couldn't find a decent tutorial to help me add this until I came to your video. While it is looking like it will be a great help, I don't want to start over. Can I continue to use the Ocean WP theme I have and just add woocommerce? Or is Flatsome part of the ecommerce and I need to use that, too?

  • Jessie Leo Malangen

    If somenone order a product who will ship the product? Does the website have a company that is integrated to the website? Thank you

  • Thomas

    Hi. When I click "quick view" on my product the product image is blurry. Can anyone help to fix this problem? I can't seem to fix it. Love your work Greg thanks, Justin.

  • Robert Rademacher

    Hi Greg, Just a general thank you for all of your work… I’m 56 and all of this is new to me as I near retirement and prepaid for my next adventure with your help. I’ve watched a lot of YouTube instructional videos and by far yours are the most helpful to the novice like myself. You take the time and explain each step in plain simple language. Some of the others can be extremely frustrating because they approach web development like we are already experts in the the field. That’s again and keep up the good work!

  • Panacea Polai

    I love this website tutorial but I wish it was a dropshipping version. .. please teach us how to make a dropshipping website using the same flatsome theme
