  • All remaining inventory including glasses, cases and microfiber cloths
  • The contact information for Corey's supplier
  • The keys to every social media account for Syght Glasses
  • One month free of Shippo
  • A consultation from a Shopify Marketing Expert of your choice.

Over the span of 5 weeks, Corey Ferreira recorded every detail of how he built and launched Syght Glasses, a business selling affordable gaming glasses that combat eye fatigue caused by prolonged exposure to blue light.

In this episode of Shopify Masters, you'll hear how Corey turned his existing interest in gaming culture into a profitable business selling glasses imported from China, and how he managed to move so quickly from product idea to product sales and made $2416.51 in under 2 months.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • How to use your competitor’s product reviews to improve your copywriting. 
  • How to reverse engineer the viability of a business idea.
  • How to find and work with influencers, and only pay them when they sell your product.
