I recently had a Shopify store that had to close down due to the COVID-19 outbreak. I was looking for some guidance in knowing if nows a good time to try and re-open or wait till this is all over. I've tried looking into affiliate marketing for the time being to see if I can get some small cash from doing that for a few months. Does anyone have any other suggestions? or should I try for the Shopify store again?
I think you should try again, Shopify is offering 90-day trial and you can take it.
It might be difficult to make sales during this hard time, but at least you have 90 days to create and research and fine-tune your store, and wait for the crisis to go away.
Many marketing courses are being offered for free, MOZ and Ahrefs are the ones I know, some of which even worth $799. I think you would be interested.
Just search "MOZ free courses" or "Ahrefs blogging for business", you'll see.
Hank here from Shopify.
