The “Grand Opening” of the LISM store!

Topic / Blogging

LISM Store OpeningOver the past couple weeks I added a store to LISM that has been secured, tested, approved and is good to go for both desktop and mobile users! Woo hoo!

While there’s not much in the store at the moment, I set it up so I could use it to distribute some other future projects I’m working on. I’m currently writing a second book for a publisher, a free ebook, and working on some youth ministry tools I always wished I had that aren’t available anywhere, so I’m taking it upon myself to create them instead (and hoping to support myself and my family in the process, of course).

The main thing in the store is my first book, “Life In Student Ministry: Practical Conversations on Thriving in youth Ministry.” To celebrate the store’s “grand opening,” for a limited time, my Youth Specialties/ Zondervan book is 30% off! It’s now only $8.95! Since I get an authors discount when I order a case of my book in bulk, I can resell them cheaper than any retailer. In fact, I checked all online retailers who carry the book and I’m cheaper than any of them. Plus, I make approximately 250% more money on the book (seriously) when you buy directly from me, so it’s a win-win for everyone!

Since the book is coming directly from me, I’m happy to autograph your copy of the book and write a note on it to you or to someone else if you’re planning to give it away as a gift. Just send me a note right after your purchase is complete to let me know.

  • Looks good, Tim. What store app did you end up choosing?

    • I'm using Cart66. It seems to be the most flexible. It's kinda limited at the moment, but it's under heavy development and is being improved regularly. I wouldn't recommend it for selling 100s of different products quite yet since you have to manually create a page and navigation for each product page (it merely provides the checkout experience), but I really do like the flexibility that comes with that, too. Since I'm just starting with only a few products (and probably won't have 100s in the long run anyway), it works perfect for me.

  • Thanks for that. I bookmarked it. I like that it includes a membership platform, might come in handy for a project I'm doing right now.
