      Question submitted 01/07/20 @ 01:18pm

      Shopify or WordPress/WooCommerce for e-commerce. We purchased the development of a new website and online shop on WordPress/WooCommerce, launched end March 2020 (previously on Wix). We weren’t advised to use Shopify at the time. We are ratcheting up our e-commerce – refining our web design and email marketing etc etc. It has been suggested to us that a really smart e-commerce system is easier done with Shopify (designed for e-commerce and easier to use) rather thanWordPress/WooCommerce (great if you want special design but not easy to use). Further, that we should change now before we undertake the refinement of our e-commerce. If we were starting with no website, it is probably a no-brainer – go with Shopify. But we have our website in place, and we’ve been working with it for nearly 3months. I understand that we must look forward for what ‘s best, and not focus on sunk costs – but what is best? The question for us is: Is Shopify better than WordPress/WooCommerce for us and if so why? Should we change now before refinement despite what it will cost to change ($3k or so) and the disruption to do this. Especially when we are in a critical point of recovery from C-19 impacts. Or is this something that could be actioned at another point? The context for the decision is: None of us are experts in any of these apps/platforms, but we’ve been learning. The labour pool that we draw from doesn’t have these skills either so we use self-learning and training to make do in this area. The developer who set up our WordPress/WooCommerce site/shop advises when required at a cost, but is not ‘on-tap’ support. We only have a small range of products we produce in our online shop but want to expand our offering in a range of ways – so we have much more of a store worth visiting!! Turnover is only about $5k currently.

      Is it worth out-sourcing our advertising to an agency? It’s pretty expensive, will it actually pay off?

      Is now a good time time to rebrand? We currently dont have any social media presence or advertise at all (waiting on rebrand) but now with Covid-19 worried that its not the right time. Can you provide please provide any insight on launching a new brand and advertising within current climate and what approach and tone should we take when many business/people are in a bad way. We are a telco in the SME space. Many thanks.

      Question submitted 18/04/20 @ 10:02am

      I have an online course to help high school athletes with their mental well being – I haven’t had a sale since going into lock down.  I haven’t been actively marketing because I don’t want to be seen as taking advantage of this horrible situation, however I know that this is something that is definitely needed and could help a lot over this time. Any suggestions on how to continue putting the course out there without coming across in the wrong way?
