Since the start of this Covid-19 pandemic, many small business have struggled around the world. With inconsistent rules, difficult shutdowns, loss of customers, vaccine mandates and more, bricks and mortar businesses are seeing a slow and steady demise.

And yet, online businesses have exploded. The past 10 years have seen an explosion of online businesses and it doesn't seem to be stopping. In fact people's comfort level with online shopping, has increased significantly and the pandemic only contributed positively to this growing trend. Shopify is one of the leading e-commerce platforms and their trajectory shows no sign of stopping.

So why e-commerce. Well, the most obvious reason is that e-commerce never has to shut down, it is always open and always available for your customers. Even restaurants and otherwise non-online businesses are jumping on the trend - creating merch that appeals to their base and encourages their loyal customers to engage in different ways. Using methods like 'dropshipping' (where small business do not have to invest in stock, and where merchandise is printed on demand), small businesses have expanded into this ever growing market.

So why is it so important? Well if you didn't already know, the world is undertaking the 4th Industrial revolution which expands off of the third.
