A Short History of Shopify
Shopify has grown by leaps and bounds over it’s lifetime to now, and to get even more people on board with them and engaged they hold a contest every year for their members, and the winner can receive a cash prize, and this can be as high as $100,000!
You may be aware from your experience or schooling that holding such contests will excite and keep your customers engaged. You can hold such contests for your customers too, it is a good idea.
Shopify has been around for a long time in internet terms, where business and ventures come and go in a flash…
Beginning in 2004, it has developed into what it is today – a major solution for e-commerce business owners in the market today. It is an easy way to build trust and get people to buy from you.
People shopping online know Shopify, so automatically you have a leg up regarding building trust with your customers and you will be able to convince people to buy from you.
It started as a platform to make setting up and running a store simpler and faster, and it was one of the earliest solutions available on the internet.
It has always helped business owners create online stores in a shorter amount of time.
These days, according to the developer of the platform, Tobias Lutke, “Shopify makes it possible to do in just 20 minutes, what it used to take months before the product was launched.”
So quite naturally it quickly became a seller’s favorite platform and remains so to this day…
Now you understand why it exists and thrives today, from it’s humble beginnings to the full featured platform it is today…
What Makes Shopify Different?
Shopify is a store platform which comes at a monthly cost for your participation/use. Whether you know anything or nothing about computer or website programming does not matter…
The framework (coding) they use for their store platform is called Ruby on Rails instead of the more common PHP language…
This unique framework coding language requires a lot of support, and they most certainly provide that to their clients. Similar companies use PHP and many can leave you trying to figure things out for yourself.
Shopify is very responsive in helping customers with their issues. This is especially important when starting out, but even as an experienced marketer it is good to know they will be there to help.
Over time, a huge amount of supporting services have also been developed that will offer solutions to some problems, and these may work better at times (faster) than the book solution from Shopify.
Remember anything that causes you to waste your time means losing opportunities to sell!
