The covid pandemic has proven the power of e-commerce once and for all.
With the help of digital tools from Shopify, businesses small and large were able to stay connected and replace 94% of in-store sales with online sales in the first six weeks of the pandemic alone. E-commerce has only become more necessary as shoppers want to support small businesses while staying safe. And now, with $5.1 billion generated by Shopify sellers on Black Friday 2020 alone, companies can prepare to grab their piece of e-commerce sales as the holiday shopping season fast approaches.
To learn how to set up or optimize your e-commerce presence, we invite you to join our free 3 Weeks to Selling Online sprint in partnership with Shopify. Running from October 11 – 29, each week brings a new step-by-step guide to get the most out of the e-commerce platform. You’ll also get access to live mentor sessions that provide tips and advice straight from the experts at Shopify.
Let’s go over what you’ll take away from each week of the sprint.
