Your jewelry store’s website is your most important asset.

It’s where new customers learn about your company and where repeat customers come back to order from you again and again. 

Don’t leave your website to chance.  If you want to start with a solid foundation, in my opinion there is no better platform than Shopify.

What Is Shopify?
Shopify is an all-in-one e-commerce platform complete with everything you need to build and grow your jewelry business. 

It’s a solution that eliminates the headaches and hassle of selling online, making it easy to scale your business and increase sales.

How Does Shopify Work?
Shopify combines everything you need into a single platform.

It is a completely cloud-based, hosted solution, meaning you can access it from any connected device. 

Software and server upgrades are handled entirely for you, making Shopify entirely maintenance-free.
 
With Shopify, you can build or customize your online jewelry store however you’d like.  You can sell through the web, mobile, in-person at trunk shows, pop-up shops, or any brick-and-mortar location. 

You can even syndicate your store and sell across multiple channels such as Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, and other online marketplaces. 

Shopify also offers an array of tools to handle inventory, manage jewelry styles, customer payments, and shipping.

Instead of cobbling together multiple technologies and systems, you have everything you need all in one place. Gone are homemade solutions that aren’t reliable and frequently break. Your imagination is truly the limit when it comes to how far Shopify can take you.

The best part about Shopify is that you don’t need to be a “techie” or an expert to use it.  Once you’re up and running, anyone in your company can quickly learn how to manage your Shopify site.

Here are six more reasons why you should choose Shopify for your jewelry website.

1. Fast loading speed
As a global solution, Shopify offers a worldwide network of hosts to ensure that your jewelry store’s website is blazing fast, loading within milliseconds, which also helps you with your search engine rankings.  

They have a trusted, reliable infrastructure and optimized hardware along with software designed for ease of use.  Self-hosted solutions simply cannot compare.

2. Powerful marketing tools
Shopify gives your jewelry store the marketing edge that you need to compete in the digital arena.  

With advanced SEO features and e-commerce analytics, you have the insight and intelligence needed to make better marketing decisions.  

In addition, tools such as customized emails, the ability to offer gift cards, and promo codes give you the marketing power to compete with much larger jewelry stores. Shopify truly levels the playing field when it comes to success.

3. Many integrations from which to choose
With more than 6,000 integrations to choose from, Shopify has the largest marketplace of “plug-and-play” solutions to help you grow your jewelry business. 

What’s most unique is that any feature you choose to add is vetted by Shopify and guaranteed to work, meaning that you won’t waste time with a piecemeal solution. 

The amazing customization options are as endless as your imagination. Your Shopify site can be anything your business needs it to be.

4. Maintenance-free web hosting
Hosting an in-house shopping cart system is extremely technical and requires constant maintenance, especially when handling credit cards. 

There are multiple security concerns you have to deal with when taking payments, and hackers can easily bypass most in-house solutions. This leaves you with a lot of financial risk if anything ever goes wrong. 

When you use Shopify, they maintain your website server, hosting, software and the payment gateway—everything that goes into a successful e-commerce site.

5. Reliability you can count on
Shopify is a proven and reliable selling solution. 

Security has always been No. 1, and Shopify defends your jewelry business against hackers, traffic attacks, bots, and other things that threaten to take down your website.  

With years of experience and a track record of success, Shopify’s reputation is unparalleled. It’s no wonder why millions of businesses choose them!
6. Mobile-ready
With most customers using their phones to shop, it’s critical that your website is mobile-friendly.  

With Shopify, there’s no second guessing. Your jewelry website will work on any mobile device from day one.  

Each theme is responsive and works on any size screen, no matter how people view your site.  Shopify is fully optimized and makes shopping and checking out a breeze, which every customer will enjoy.  

In conclusion, when it comes to succeeding online, there is no better solution than Shopify. It has everything you need to start, grow, and scale your jewelry business.

Give it a try, and you’ll quickly understand just how powerful it is.
