What is Shopify?


In a world trying to convince you that you need an arsenal of tools to run your business, Shopify is a swiss army knife. What is Shopify? Shopify is an e-commerce platform that lets you create, mature, and oversee your business. What does this mean, and why use Shopify for your business?  Glad you asked because this would be a very short blog if you already knew the answer.

There are a ton of e-commerce platforms in this world that demands your company have an online presence. At JEG DESIGN INC., you know we already offer you Squarespace. Squarespace is great because it allows the company to use a variety of options, such as but not limited to:

  • Coupons
  • Shipping options
  • And management of email lists

Essentially, it provides you with complete control over your website.  However, if the company does what not every, but a lot of companies strive to do – become bigger – then you’re going to have a harder time if you had another e-commerce platform, let’s say…Shopify.

Shopify Grows as You Grow

I’m not tall. If you know me, you realize my growth spurt happened right around the time Michael Jordan won his second NBA Championship.  And when you’re 43, that’s a long time ago. 

Growth is essential. Growth is our brass ring. Growth is why we get up every day. And if something impedes our growth, we need to either face it head-on or find another solution. In the case of Shopify, you’re assured your website will not be something you need to work about. 

If you’re business grows, you have the ability, and better yet, the option to purchase whatever you need to keep you trending in the upward direction. 

But what about your prospective customers?

Shopify is Responsive

Today, people don’t come to your business; your business comes to the people. Meaning, you need to be sure your website can meet people on their laptops, desktop, phone, iPad, etc. Shopify’s responsive design adapts to whatever device the user is using. 

And speaking of responsive…
