If you’re an established Shopify merchant, you already know that — although Shopify is a great eCommerce platform — in order to make your store function at a higher level, you’ll need to install add-ons.

In our increasingly digital society, your website is the most visible aspect of your business. It’s the portal to the hearts and minds of your potential customers and clients. It behooves you to make that portal as clean and attractive as possible. The good news is that it’s never been easier to build a professional, effective business website — one that drives conversions and looks good doing it.
I like Weebly (see our review). There, I said it. Weebly isn’t the most exciting or buzz-worthy website builder around, and it is generally not the choice of web designers who design high-end websites for their clientele. However, Weebly occupies a special place — in my heart, at least — for its supreme familiarity and ease-of-use. […]
Technology is evolving at breakneck speed. Consider this: when I was born in 1982, personal computers weren’t a thing (though we did have rotary phones for hours of dialing fun). I personally witnessed the genesis and extinction of the VCR, CDs, CD-ROM, floppy disks, flip phones, and AOL. That’s a lot of technology to rise […]

That free site, though, will come with limited storage and features — and Wix branding on every page as well as in the URL. So is paying for a plan the smart route to take? It depends. The first step is understanding Wix’s different pricing plans and what each extra dollar you spend gets you in return.
Strange as it may sound, there was a time when a photographer’s one and only way to compile a collection of their work was through the use of a binder. Nowadays, with the advent of easy DIY website builders, it’s never been easier to put together a digital portfolio of your photos for all to […]
As DIY website builders go, Squarespace has long been seen as the Neiman Marcus of the industry; a pricier, more elegant alternative to the likes of Wix and Weebly. This notion has always been something of an exaggeration, as Squarespace’s pricing and level of features don’t drastically differ from the offerings of the competition. However, […]
Those of us in the eCommerce industry know full well that Shopify is one of the best and biggest shopping carts out there. Over the past year or so, Shopify has become a household name (partly due to the recent controversy regarding a few of Shopify’s more notorious customers). Here at Merchant Maverick, we love […]
