Shopify remote work: How working from home is the new normal


Working remotely is the one good thing that has come from the pandemic. It’s evident that COVID-19 has changed  lives, and that certainly includes the way that most of us will be working.

We always knew that it was possible to connect and sell online but this has opened up a whole new world for small business owners and consumers. New ways have grown from necessity, let's explore what's new in the way of marketing offline for brick and mortar businesses as well as exciting online possibilities. 

When we come out of this period,  the new normal I suspect will be  that remote work will be the ​ growing trend. That and companies that support this game changing trend.

One of which is Shopify.  A multinational  e-commerce firm  who is headquartered in Ottawa Canada,  (where I was born and raised.) Who is seeing a booming demand as more companies move to sell online.  The image is from my free Shopify site that I have started.

Shopify's CEO Tobi Lutke says the company is doing everything it can to help businesses start selling online to stay afloat.

"The spread of COVID-19 is going to be a tough time for all entrepreneurs," he said in a statement. "We are working as fast as we can to support our merchants by re-tooling our products to help them adapt to this new reality."

  1. Yes, it’s strange how adverse circumstances yield opportunities if you’re willing to look for them. There’s definitely opportunity for remote work since we’ve been forced into doing it. And that has yielded more opportunities to develop online businesses. Lots of great info here on tools to use.


    1. Hi Rosemary,
      Life is strange these days, that is true. The pandemic has exposed many things that we really were not aware of. One would be working remotely. Developing businesses in a different way. A new opportunity to be explored. New tools to do so with. The future is online work, from home. Thanks so much for your comments.
