Expert Knowledge / Ecommerce
As the ecommerce economy continues to grow, Shopify now powers more than 800,000 websites worldwide. Built well, the platform can supercharge your online sales with ease. Find everything you need to know about Shopify below, including the platform’s key features, how it differs from rival providers and how to work with Shopify experts. If you want to find out how Shopify can grow your business, let’s chat.
Choosing an ecommerce solution for your business can be tricky. It makes sense to pick a platform that can scale with you, support the entire customer journey, and integrate with the other channels you use, such as Amazon and Facebook. Shopify’s come a long way to provide this functionality. Inspired by a collection of poor ecommerce experiences, three guys in Ottawa developed a new platform to sell snowboards online. After some rapid evolution, Shopify is now one of the leading SaaS-based platforms in the world, used by around 600,000 businesses across 175 countries.
Shopify Plus packs a bigger punch. While it’s been around for a while, it’s important to clarify the difference between the two. Shopify works best for small to medium-sized businesses. It’s great for start-ups and to help take your ecommerce business to the next level. Once you get there, you’ll need Shopify Plus. This enhanced version can handle more products and more transactions. In fact, it can handle over 10,000 purchases per minute.
There are tonnes of plugins to choose from in the Shopify App Store. 2,400 actually. Sifting through them can be a laborious process without a Shopify expert. And it’s crucial to pick a targeted selection that’ll actually benefit the way you do business online. Installing lots of apps might feel intuitive to help gain the most insight possible. But this can overwhelm your site and create conflicts in the code.
Shopify is hosted for you. But this doesn’t necessarily mean that you can build a fully functional, beautiful and optimised site that’ll make you an overnight success. Employing an expert to develop your Shopify site is likely to accelerate sales performance and ensure the user experience is correct. From development and theme design, to digital marketing strategy, working with an expert gives your site the greatest opportunity to succeed.
