Your Shopify store is live, your products are ready to fly off the shelves, and your ads are beautifully designed and optimized. Now what? It’s time to link every single ad account to Shopify, of course! (Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds — luckily, most of these ad platforms have created Shopify integration apps, so it’s a one-click process!)
