Andy Forkgen – COO and Co-Founder

One of the areas that we are becoming very proficient in lately is Shopify. Following our goal to become a Shopify Partner in 2020, we have several analysis and build projects under our belts now including a huge project for a retailer of high-end consumer goods.

This is an interesting project encompassing literally thousands of SKUs and whilst we’re handling the Shopify build with a fairly breezy attitude (Shopify is great to work with, massively powerful and has everything that one needs to build a massive, scalable, secure E-Commerce site) we’re also working hard with the customer to ensure that the quality of content, imagery and residual metadata is on par with the quality of the Shopify build.

Hard work yet hugely satisfying and we can’t wait to launch in September 2020 and embark upon a six month SEO, marketing (Google Shop, Facebook, Ebay) campaign to promote the new store.

If you don’t know much about Shopify, put simply, the services they offer are wide ranging and are as follows (to use the words from their website):

No.1 eCommerce Platform for All Businesses. Start, Run and Grow Your Business with Shopify®. Customize Your Store With Our Website Builder. Trusted by Over 1,000,000 Businesses. Social Media Integration. SEO Optimized. Fully Hosted. Unlimited 24/7 Support.

This kind of underplays how powerful the platform is; where Shopify started off as a bit of a drag and drop system, it’s now grown into a mature and comprehensive set of tools and is trusted by huge FMCG and retail outlets alike. We’ve recently seen stores run by Sacla, Heinz and many others using Shopify so it really is trusted by the big boys.

And where we at GlobalizeMe do well is in our existing knowledge of cloud, content, security and general E-Commerce (having implemented Magento and Woocommerce stores worldwide) so we really know how to leverage the toolset.

If you want to know more about how we can help you build, market and maintain your Shopify presence, no matter how big or small, please do give us a shout.
