WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: Start an Online Business with Shopify (Episode 142)

There’s no doubt 2020 has changed the way we do business. And the most dramatic change? The need to be online as a primary way of doing business.

One of the best ways to start that online business is with Shopify. With over 1 million merchants now on board, it’s easy to use and it can put you in front of a worldwide marketplace readily and efficiently. Once you’re on board with Shopify, it will run seamlessly behind the scenes, powering your website so that you can conduct all e-commerce activities, from getting found to closing sales, with ease.

Jeff spoke with Samantha Renée, business tutorials producer at Shopify, who shared her expert tips in the Business Beat segment below:

WJR Business Beat Transcript

Good morning, Paul. We all know how dramatically our lives have changed in 2020, and along with it, businesses specifically, our small businesses, have been forced into dramatic change, as well. One of the more glaring changes? The need to be online as a primary way of doing business, not a supplementary way, but figuring out how to do that efficiently and in a low-cost way that delivers a supreme customer experience.

Well, I’ve got a tip for you on how to do just that.

One of the most highly recommended go-to turnkey solutions to consider is Shopify. With over 1 million merchants now on board, it’s easy to use and it can put you in front of a worldwide marketplace readily and efficiently. Once you’re on board with Shopify, it will run seamlessly behind the scenes, powering your website so that you can conduct all e-commerce activities, from getting found to closing sales.

I spoke with Samantha Renee of Shopify this morning, and she offers a step-by-step course on how to get started successfully with Shopify, and had this to say:

“Our broad mission at Shopify is to make commerce better for everyone, and that just means making it easy for people like entrepreneurs who want to, whether it’s start a new business or even bring an existing business online, we make that easy, and you can start a store on Shopify, which is like your full website. And from there, you can host your products and sell products, whether it’s in person or online. And it just gives you an easy way to sell globally. We make shipping easy. We make all the things that you might bump into as a business owner, you will have access to all of the things that I mentioned before in terms of managing your inventory, you get discounts on shipping, you get access to 24-hour customer support. You get everything that you would need to start and grow a business for $29.”

So, needing to ramp up your online sales or thinking of starting a new online business of your own? Think Shopify.

I’m Jeff Sloan, founder and CEO of StartupNation.com, and that’s today’s Business Beat on the Great Voice of the Great Lakes, WJR.
