     * Introduction step.
    public function dokan_setup_introduction() {
        $dashboard_url = dokan_get_navigation_url();
        <h1><?php esc_attr_e( 'Welcome to my marketplace Vendor', 'dokan-lite' ); ?></h1>
        <p><?php echo wp_kses( __( 'Thank you for choosing The Marketplace to power your online store! This quick setup wizard will help you configure the basic settings. <strong>It’s completely optional and shouldn’t take longer than two minutes.</strong>', 'dokan-lite' ), [ 'strong' => [] ] ); ?></p>
        <p><?php esc_attr_e( 'No time right now? If you don’t want to go through the wizard, you can skip and return to the Store!', 'dokan-lite' ); ?></p>
        <p class="wc-setup-actions step">
            <a href="<?php echo esc_url( $this->get_next_step_link() ); ?>" class="button-primary button button-large button-next lets-go-btn dokan-btn-theme"><?php esc_attr_e( 'Let\'s Go!', 'dokan-lite' ); ?></a>
