Welcome to our mini course on shipping frozen product! We’ve designed this course for farmers and ranchers who have frozen products that they would like to start directly delivering and selling via an online storefront. If you sell more locally, this course will still show you how to build an online store via Shopify.
Perhaps you’re a little overwhelmed at the idea of creating an entire store online as well as figuring out all the logistics of shipping materials, working with shipping carriers, or how you should even sell your products (a la carte? As packages? As eighths or quarters?).
However, despite all the seeming complications between Point A and Point B, it really doesn’t have to be difficult. You don’t need fancy or expensive equipment when you’re starting out. We shipped for years out of a garage and 2 chest freezers before finally upgrading to a shipping warehouse and a walk-in freezer! You also don’t need a super complicated website with lots of products at first. If you’re just starting out, it’s ok to stick to the basics. You don’t need to ship nationwide–in fact, you shouldn’t! And finally, in this course we’ll show you how you don’t need to go figure out problems like how to ship through UPS, how to process credit card payments online, or how to manage orders. Instead, we’ll give you a seamless solution for these problems.
So overall, shipping and selling online on your own storefront doesn’t have to be complicated! In fact, you can be doing it in just 5 days.
Yes, these are going to be full days. There is still quite a bit of work between you and handing off a ready-to-ship box to the UPS driver. But we completely believe this is feasible if you put in the time and work!
