So you’re considering hosting your e-commerce website on Shopify. But now you keep seeing the term “Shopify expert” thrown around. And you’re wondering what exactly a Shopify expert is and if you really need to hire one.
What is a Shopify Expert?
Simply put, it’s an e-commerce web designer and/or developer who has fulfilled a few mandatory requirements, such as successfully launching a minimum of 5 stores. Experts actually have to maintain their status by launching a minimum number of Shopify stores each year.
Why should you hire a Shopify Expert?
Because you want your online store to rock, of course! Jokes aside, hiring a Shopify expert can and will take your online store to the next level. While Shopify is a user-friendly platform, there are some major benefits to leaving the set up to the pros.
To be blunt, search engines just prefer custom built sites over the free, generic templates. And SEO is absolutely crucial to your online store’s success. You would rely on someone who knows the area to give directions to your physical storefront, wouldn’t you? So why risk a low search engine ranking by taking on the project yourself? Let the experts make sure your online customers find and love your store.
A major factor in a business’s success rate is establishing consistent branding. When you work with an expert, you will receive some guidance on setting your brand up for success. With their help, you will be equipped with the tools you need to carry out your branding across multiple platforms, assisting in brand recognition.
When you work with a Shopify expert, you’re privy to their wealth of knowledge. Experts know the platform backwards and forwards. They’re committed to staying up-to-date on platform updates. And with their experience, they’ve had the opportunity to determine what works, best tips and tricks, and best practices for the platform to foster your success.
