Harness Shopify to grow your business

Shopify is a commerce platform that allows business owners to easily set up an online store in order to sell their products. It’s a great tool for small business owners as it includes the ability to keep track of product inventory, set up payment + shipping options, customise a storefront and integrate third party ‘apps’ with your business. We like to recommend Shopify if you’re a business that sells physical products as it’s an all-in-one commerce platform, which means that you can start, grow and manage the business all on Shopify.

However, with Shopify being such a rich ecosystem, Lumos Marketing can help manage your Shopify storefront for you so that you can take care of the more important stuff of running an e-commerce business.

How to know if you should use Shopify?

Shopify is the perfect all-in-one commerce platform as it’s a SaaS (software as a service) and encompasses multiple moving pieces such as marketing, web design, payment processing so that you can operate on a professional level. We recommend Shopify if you:

  • Don’t need a highly customised website
  • Only need to sell products
  • Need a platform that’s easy to scale
  • Need something easy to use and manage
  • Need it to integrate with apps such as Printful, Yotpo and Klaviyo

Why Shopify?

Essential

Easy to use

Shopify accounts for nearly 20 percent of the eCommerce website market and powers 3.5 million stores. The thing that makes it so popular is its ease of use for merchants, fully integrating everything from inventory management, to shipping and payments. Some of the other things we love are:

  • Clean, user interface in the back end
  • No coding required
  • Very quick set up
  • 247 support and help centre 

Compared with some of the other ecommerce platforms online, Shopify is considered the most user-friendly for merchants.

Seamless

So many integrations

Shopify has an App Store that comes with 4000 different, Shopify tested and approved apps, that integrate your online store with the rest of the internet. Some of these apps are paid but a lot of them are free.

Some of our favourite integrations are:

  • Shipstation (for connecting to your Shipping Carriers and displaying live results)
  • Yotpo (for reviews collection and display)
  • ReCharge (for subscriptions)
  • Smile (Rewards program)

What is the difference between Shopify developers?

When it comes to Shopify Websites Perth, there are so many different options available and they all come at completely different price points. Here are a few things to check if you are confused about pricing and why there are so many differences between services:

  • Are they building the site from scratch or using trusted Shopify themes?
  • Are they writing the copy?
  • Are they doing the graphic design and imagery sourcing?
  • Is the website being designed in Perth or overseas?
  • Is the website unique to your business or are they just copying their work from an existing site?
  • Will there be any conversion techniques built into the site?
  • Does the site include basic SEO?
  • Are they providing training or DIY instructions for ongoing maintenance?
  • What is the ongoing support like?

These questions should help you position everyone on a scale in terms of what you are paying for and why there are discrepancies between pricing.
