Recognizing the importance of reaching customers online to drive sales, Christen turned to the ShopHERE powered by Google Program. With limited knowledge of website development, she sought their guidance and support.
The ShopHERE program powered by Google program helps simplify the approach to website development for small businesses and artists. By providing a structured process the program equips business owners with a new online store, and provides the necessary knowledge and resources so they can effectively manage their online store. This includes support from a dedicated E-Commerce coordinator who can get to know the needs of an individual business. Through the ShopHERE powered by Google program, small businesses can have their customized online store up and running in no time, and owners can feel empowered to manage the store themselves.
“The e-Commerce Coordinator was amazing. She took the time to listen to my needs and worked with me throughout the process. She was very knowledgeable and patient. I didn't know how to build an (online) store. I learned a lot from the e-Commerce Coordinator. I would never have thought about all the various policies I would have to write down. As a new store owner, I needed someone to guide me, and the e-Commerce Coordinator was here for that.”
The ShopHERE powered by Google program played a pivotal role in establishing GloWell Designs' online presence with a new online store so that they can successfully reach a wider audience.
I had nothing before this program. Just ideas. Now I have beautiful website. My website is so beautiful and looks so professional! I am receiving many compliments. I would never have such a beautiful website if I had to do it myself for the first time.
The program also equipped Christen with the knowledge and skills to manage her website's day-to-day tasks. When reflecting on the program, she shares:
“I am eternally thankful for the opportunity to be a part of Digital Main Street’s ShopHERE program. The fact that such an amazing resource dedicated to helping businesses is available for free is mind-blowing! The e-Commerce Coordinator exemplary guidance and expertise made this experience even more extraordinary than I could have ever imagined. I would recommend to all small businesses or artists looking for assistance, or simply a boost, to enroll in the ShopHERE powered by Google program from Digital Main Street. They will find help, resources, and people to connect with, which is paramount!”
Digital Main Street was created by the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Areas (TABIA) with direct support from the City of Toronto.
