In Q4 of 2019 and January of 2020 I found myself speaking to many Small Business Owners about their plans for year, there was a very strong and recurring theme, particularly among the “mompreneurs”. It was to “go legit”. Meaning to build a true foundation for your business, proper sales invoices and tracking, generating high-level sales reports, EXPENSE tracking, all of the details needed to truly build and learn what is and isn’t working for your business.
Of course “going legit” bears a cost, platform fees, payment fees etc.
But, any successful business owner will tell you that you have to invest in yourself and your business to see it grow. A manual less sophisticated business can work for many but it depends on your goals.
If you are looking to scale up, to distribute and connect with consumers local and abroad I have a great find for you.
The Federal Government of Canada has partnered with Shopify to support a transition to a true ecommerce business and together they are providing a 90-day free trial.
Take advantage of this opportunity to:
- See how beneficial a dedicated website with all your product offerings and pricing can be to generate Sales
- Obtain instant real time sales reports
- Accept payments at the time of Sale, no money chasing!
- Plus the numerous Marketing and additional ecommerce tutorials and additions Shopify has to offer
- Inventory Management
- Sales Order Management/Product Insights -> Abandoned Carts
If 2020 has you thinking about sustainability and growth there is no reason not to try this for free and see how this can benefit your business with an online catalogue and access to information for yourself.
If 2020 has taught us anything it is that we must be agile and willing to adapt to business changes and my friends, ecommerce is that change.
Happy to chat with anyone not sure if this is for them or not.
