How Shopify is Helping Small Businesses
Join the Online Retail Revolution
Online shopping is the future, and it will involve a lot more than simply scrolling through 2D images on your smartphone. Augmented reality, AI, and virtual shopping assistants, are just some of the technologies companies are working on to provide online customers with a fully immersive retail experience. So establishing an online presence today is essential for any business that wants to be a part of this future retail space.
But if you're a small business owner with little or no experience in digital retail, where do you even start? Small business finance provider OnDeck can help. It recently created a small business owner's guide to using Shopify, the e-commerce platform for hosting and organizing online stores.
The guide starts by explaining why you should choose Shopify as your e-commerce platform. It outlines all of Shopify's biggest selling features, including built-in SEO and marketing tools, insightful analytics and reporting tools, and how to sell your products in over 130 countries. It also highlights the apps you can add to the Shopify platform to help run an online shop in a way that suits your business needs.
And don't worry if you've never used an e-commerce platform before. The second part of the guide walks you through a step-by-step process to setting up shop online. You'll learn how to set up a free trial, select the correct payment package, and much more. And each step includes a pro tip to make sure you avoid those common rookie errors.
Going digital has never been so easy. So read on, then start preparing your business for the upcoming retail revolution.
