Now Is The Time To Put Your Shop Online – With Shopify

With all these changes due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, would you consider moving your brick & mortar shop into the online space?

If so,

How would you like to trial Shopify FREE for 3 months? 😱

Most of you probably know what Shopify is. But for those who don’t, it’s an eCommerce platform for setting up online shops for anyone.

Shopify offers you an online shop where you can sell your own products. You can select from over 70 themes or “looks” for your shop, it offers analytics, a mobile app, and a secure shopping cart and more.

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, Shopify has been generous enough to offer a FREE 90-day trial for all new customers. And an extended 90-days trial for anyone who’s currently on the 14-day trial.

How do you get this offer?

To get your FREE 90-day trial, visit Shopify here – https://www.shopify.com/ And enter your email to start.

But I’d advise you to think a little through, check out how the site works, watch some tutorials to get an idea and plan out what you want to do first. THEN sign up to get the maximum out of the 90-day free trial.

What if you already have a Shopify store?

Unfortunately the 90-day free trial won’t translate to existing Shopify shop owners. BUT…

If you are already a Shopify shop owner you still get loads of other benefits. Check them out here – https://www.shopify.com/covid19

Sooo, those of you who have been procrastinating on your online shop OR never thought of trying it out, now is the time! Go Go Go!!

And, don’t forget to share the good news with your friends 😉
