I'm Kurt Elster, a Shopify Expert.
I help Shopify store owners uncover hidden profits in their websites.
But first, let's discuss how I got here.
I was one of the first Shopify Experts– after knocking out a custom theme for a local client, I was personally invited by Shopify Partners Program lead and Head of Shopify Experts Dan Eveleigh to join the program. Of course I said yes, and I loved it so much that in 2014, I decided to niche down exclusively on Shopify, bowing out of all non-Shopify projects. Since then, I’ve been writing about Shopify, talking about Shopify, and teaching about Shopify. Hell, I run the single most popular Shopify podcast by far, and I didn’t even start it that long ago.
As a result, I've been able to specialize exclusively and successfully in helping Shopify store owners generate huge revenue growth.
The reason for my success is simple.
I put my clients in the strongest position to yield the best results from every visitor to their website. To do that, I've built relationships defined by honesty and trust. My clients know I'm working for them and their customers' best interests. The Shopify stores my award-winning team builds are the product of the highest level of optimization in the business. We're not just building websites, we're building competitive advantages.
The numbers speak for themselves.
In 2014, the websites I designed received over 12 million visitors and $10 million in revenue. That wasn't an accident, it's by design. I know you need a positive return on your investment in addition to a well-designed and user-friendly website.

Ultimately, my goal is to build a business that supports the life I want. A life that lets me enjoy time with my family, and my beautiful wife. I'm running a small business by choice. I don't want to spend my days managing employees. Instead, I want to treat my time as a scarce resource and invest in helping others also build businesses for the lives they want too.

Because I love teaching people how to grow their businesses, and sharing my experiences growing my own successful consultancy, I've been interviewed and discussed more times than I can count.
