Below we will quickly show you why it's so important for your business to be online in 2020. If it seems daunting to get started, don't worry, that's why we are here! Let us help you set up a professional online store that compliments your existing brand.
Why do I need to get my business online?
It’s no surprise that online businesses have some distinct advantages over traditional brick-and-mortar stores; from lower overhead costs to a wider total-addressable-market, there are significant growth opportunities. Whether you want to only run an online business or if you want to expand to another sales channel, now has never been a better time to open an digital store: e-commerce revenue in Canada is expected to rise from $25bn in 2019 to $33bn by 2024, with 24% of Canadian saying they will increase their online shopping spending post-Covid-19.
It is important to know that the online world is extremely competitive, as are most business industries. That is why it is imperative to setup your online store properly. There are so many facets to the digital world and it’s easy to get overwhelmed or lost. It takes years of business experience to navigate, build, and grow online.

Why don't I just sell on Amazon?
Amazon is a great complimentary service to your business, but we advise against it becoming your sole online sales channel. Amazon charge fees for everything you do on their platform such as: inventory in and out, inventory management, stale inventory, shipping, oversize packing, labelling, returns, unsellable inventory, monthly fee, etc. They also have strict guidelines and rules that can change with little notice leaving you vulnerable.
That’s all without mentioning the competition! While Amazon.ca has less competition than Amazon.com, there is still really strong competition. If you’re selling existing products, you will be competing for the lucrative ‘buy box’, and joining the race to the bottom for margin. If you’re selling your own custom product, you will likely need to spend lots of ad dollars to get it on the front page. If you product has no reviews, or a review score below 4, your product will typically be overlooked by consumers.
To alleviate this, we recommend you build your own store. With your own store, you control everything!
As a Shopify Partner, we will help you create a professional-looking store that is reliable and easy to manage.
