What Is The Shopify Workshop?
The workshop helps business get online and selling quickly with the help of our carefully selected e-commerce experts.
This session will encompass a wide range of e-commerce expertise where someone with no prior experience in e-commerce will be able get a store up and running within 3 hours. Specifically we will show you how to build your very own Shopify store and give you the skills needed to customize and catalyze your e-commerce business.
Why Did We Decide To Use Shopify As The E-Commerce Platform?
The reason is simple, they’re local (which is amazing) and one of the best e-commerce platforms in the world! Currently Shopify supports hundreds of thousands stores worldwide and is used by notable companies such as the Los Angeles Lakers, Google, Tesla, Herschel, etc. Local supports local, it doesn’t get any better than that!
What Will You Learn?
The workshop starts with an overview of Shopify’s “theme environment” and best practices which will optimize your time when building your very first store.
After that you’ll learn how to use pre-built templates for your store’s products and in turn learn to customize each page so that it’s aligned with your company’s branding. This workshop will also teach you everything you need to know about your shopping cart, Shopify’s vast collection of apps, drop-shipping, analytics and so much more.
By the end of the workshop, your newly created storefront will be transformed from a pre-selected template to a wonderfully unique design, that’s ready to start generating new revenue streams for your main street business or online e-commerce project.
