[MUSIC PLAYING] Welcome to the bonus module. In the course, you'll learn how to design a Shopify store without making any customizations that required code. Though as your business grows, you may have changes you might want to make to your store that are beyond the capabilities of your theme. So how do you do it? I want to share four suggestions for making customizations to your website.
My first recommendation is use layout editing apps like Pagefly or Shogun. These are great apps to allow you to build more complicated layouts without needing code at all. I've included links to YouTube videos that show you how to use these apps and their capabilities. My second recommendation is an app called Power. [? Powerball ?] is an incredible suite of customizable features that you can add to your store, and for example, adding an FAQ widget or YouTube and Vimeo video gallery.
My third recommendation is an app called Spently. Spently allows you to apply design customization to your transactional emails like an order confirmation email that gets sent when you make an order. Shopify email notifications are pre-built and super powerful. But if you're looking to take your notifications to another level, Spently has a powerful email builder feature that allows you to create on-brand emails and even offer features like up-sell and cross-sell which is pretty neat.
And my final recommendation, if you really want to start outsourcing, is to try out the Shopify expert market. If you're at the point with your Shopify store where you need a professional opinion or even help leveling up your store, whether that's design, development, photography, and so much more, the experts listing is an incredible way to visit vetted experts. So there you have it.
