Shopify is one of the coolest ecommerce platforms to sell online with. Some people might think that larger brands and famous people wouldn’t be interested in Shopify because they might need something more powerful or customizable. This is far from the truth, because Shopify stores actually give you just about everything you need to expand your brand into something huge (especially with their new Shopify Plus version for high volume businesses).
From SMS Audio by 50 Cent, Daymond John to Third Eye Blind, Shopify shows that no matter how big your company, they have the tools to help you manage it when you are looking at all the ecommerce platform options.
Shopidy Stores: Lollapalooza
Lollapalooza is just about one of the coolest organizations in the world, so it doesn’t take much to get inspired by the fact that they use Shopify to sell their music festival merchandise. The website it rather sleek, and you can see how they always have professional photos for all of their seasonal apparel.
I particularly enjoy how they include quite a few photos for each product.
Shopidy Stores: Third Eye Blind
Third Eye Blind is an inspiration to all bands and artists out there, and they use the Shopify platform to really push their vinyls, along with merchandise like t-shirts. The site is simple and true to their brand, and you can even grab a free download of one of their songs at the bottom of the homepage.
Shopify Stores: Jimmie Vaughan
Blues star Jimmie Vaughan uses Shopify to sell his merchandise and music, and he even merges the interface to provide tour dates and other information that fans would enjoy.
SMS Audio works with several celebrity spokespeople like Carmelo Anthony to bring a unique take on high-quality, wireless headphones. The slider on the homepage is perfect for showcasing products, and you can clearly see some credibility boosts with endorsements from artists and athletes alike.
LMFAO is another popular artist group that makes a big splash with their Shopify design. The YouTube sensations have a clear brand that stands out from anyone else. Checkout their goofy pants, shirts and other items to get an idea of how to really make a brand.
Daymond John, one of the Shark Tank sharks, works with Shopify to show new entrepreneurs how to quickly get online and start selling their products. He is known for utilizing the platform for lots of his brands and wholeheartedly endorses Shopify because of how quick it is.
Tattly sells stylish temporary tattoos, but what makes them stand out on their Shopify store is the way they actually demonstrate how the product works in the product photos . It’s one thing to take a picture of the item, but in order to boost sales you must show how it works.
Packer Shoes has a unique take on the Shopify store by providing links to some of their coolest posts on Instagram at the bottom. This is an interesting way to push people to your social media pages and engage them to buy more products.
The thing I like most about Faucet Face is its extremely clean interface. The white minimalist touch helps you see the water bottle designs clearly and you know exactly where to click when you land on the homepage.
Love Is Art provides a full image for the homepage, with links to the different countries it services. This certainly grabs your attention with the sexy models, and you really only have one place to click when you land on the page. It’s all about simplicity, because if people have to search around for your products then they will just end up leaving.
Chalkd sells original chalkboards, and the homepage has a nice slider to showcase all the products along with the occasional button that prompts people to win a free chalkboard. What better way to bring in more customers than by offering something for free?
Three Square Feet is the definition of inspiration since the company is always working with a charity to promote happiness and awareness in the world. A large portion of the contributions go to these charities, which is not a bad business pitch and it helps the world.
If you are looking to sell something by convincing people that it will make them look better there is no better way to do so than by placing striking models on the homepage. That’s exactly what Noon Copenhagen does, and it makes their watches look even better.
Pencil by 53 sells one primary product, but they do it so well. The product is showcased with huge pictures on the homepage, and you can quickly find some information on what the iPad pencil does if you scroll down just a tad.
Shwood Shop is a remarkable wood eyewear company, with a huge photo of their unique item and just a couple buttons at the top that lead to the products. Your storefront has lots to do with how you portray yourself and this company shows elegance and a little bit of rustic flair.
Dodocase is a fun and functional product and they show this with bright colors and clear pictures of what the product actually does on the homepage.
Bohemian Guitars is one of the more simple websites on this list, but my favorite part about this Shopify homepage is the Get $50 for Free banner right when you land on the page.
Bottle Cutting Inc. takes a wise approach by placing a huge video on the homepage to explain what the product does. If your product requires a little explaining, go for a video.
I like Natural Force’s homepage because they tell you exactly what the product is, right when you land on the page. Not only that, but they tell you by giving you a cool catchphrase.
Longboard Living takes a unique approach to the Shopify store by using a menu that sits on the left hand side of the page. This way people can always see where they need to go and the content pops up to the right.
Leatherhead provides huge photos of its products on the homepage and there aren’t many navigation buttons so you don’t get confused on where to go.
Take a look at the Best Made Co. fonts and notice how they always make them to fit their brand. It speaks for itself.
I hope this list helps you muster up some courage and realize that with a little help from Shopify you can turn your entrepreneurial dreams into a reality.
