Are There Additional Costs Involved With Zero Up™?
The Zero Up™ business model does require additional costs, which are not limited to the following:
- Shopify Account: Zero Up™ is 100% integrated with Shopify, which means you'll need a Shopify account in order to take full advantage of our software. Each Shopify account requires a monthly subscription fee, which starts at $29 per month for the Basic Shopify Plan. While we do recommend going with the $79 per month Shopify Plan for lower credit card/transaction fee rates and more features, it is entirely sufficient to go with the Basic Shopify plan to get started. You can always upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time. For Shopify's pricing, please visit the page here.
If you do not have a Shopify account yet, we have negotiated a deal with Shopify, which will provide you with 21-day free trial PLUS 10% off your monthly subscription for an entire year. To take advantage of this exclusive offer, please use this link https://www.shopify.com/fredlam to sign up for a Shopify account. Please note: you will not be able to see any trial-day or price changes until AFTER you the original trial period is over. This offer ONLY applies to new Shopify accounts.
Furthermore, Zero Up™ does give you the ability to integrate with multiple Shopify stores. However, each Shopify store will require a new Shopify account, each subject to a monthly subscription fee.
- Website Domain: For your online store, you will need a website domain (aka. your website URL). There are many domain providers in the market, which you can purchase one from anywhere you like. GoDaddy, NameCheap, and Siteground are definitely the more popular domain providers. Please note: you do not need to purchase any web hosting because Shopify will be hosting your online store, you just need to point your domain to Shopify.
- Email Autoresponder: You will need an email list management service to manage your email leads and send them emails. We recommend Sendlane, which starts at $19 a month. For a whole list of email autoresponders that Zero Up™ is integrated with, please click here.
- Advertising Cost: You will need to do online advertising to drive traffic to your store. For example, advertising on Facebook & Google. The budget is entirely up to you. However, we do recommend starting with $5 per day per ad set. So if your campaign has 4 ad sets and each ad sets spend $5 per day, then each day you will spend $20 per day for your campaign.
- Shopify Apps: We do recommend installing the following Shopify apps to enhance your store but they are not required. These apps are what we are using and what we have found beneficial. Likewise, you may install more then the following apps depending on your needs.
