Shopify Build a Business Competition is back!

Shopify Announcements

The Shopify Build a Business Competition competition has returned!

This year marks the 5th Build a Business Competition for any new Shopify store, and the prize is even better than years past. Shopify says it best:

We’re flying five winners on a private jet to Richard Branson’s Necker Island for a five-day adventure full of mentorship, exploration, and professional growth.

Five days of mentorship from the likes of Sir Richard Branson, Tim Ferriss, Marie Forleo, Seth Godin, and Daymond John. How awesome is that?! Winners will have personalized advice and guidance on running their new business from entrepreneurs that have met success after success.

The best part of the Build a Business Competition is that you have to do what you’re probably doing already anyway – create a product and start selling via Shopify. That’s it. No, really.

Once your store is ready to go, simply join the competition to start tracking your sales over the next 8 months. Sell the most to win. Easy peasy.

If you aren’t using Shopify already, you can sign up for a free 14-day trial in minutes to get started!

Want to drive traffic to your new store? Try blogging. We’ve got an app that will help you import posts from another platform if you don’t want to use Shopify. Want to move out from under Amazon’s shadow? Try selling personalized products with Product Customizer. Want to encourage customers to visit and purchase again, or share purchases via social media? Our Happy Ending app is just the tool you need.

Set up your store, showcase your fantastic product catalog, supercharge it with some helpful apps, and best of luck in the Shopify Build a Business competition!
