Shane Quigley

In the fast-changing world of online shopping, it’s crucial to listen to experts who understand how things work. One such expert is Shane Quigley, Co-Founder of SHIFT Marketplace. His ideas have turned SHIFT into a top-notch Amazon consultancy. Shane, an experienced figure in the industry, has created and successfully managed multiple e-commerce platforms.

In 2004, he ventured into digital marketing with the establishment of Epiphany. Witnessing the nascent stages of search and digital advertising, Epiphany flourished, growing to 300 employees. In 2012, Shane expanded internationally, and sold Epiphany for £18 million.

His subsequent ventures include Earth, an online furniture retailer, and SHIFT Commerce, a SaaS e-commerce platform. SHIFT Commerce generated over £30 million before selling the IP in 2023.

With these experiences, Shane understands how to navigate the digital marketplace. So, he shared some tips that he followed to stand out and flourish.

  1. Establish a Strong Online Presence: Building a robust online presence is the foundation of successful e-commerce. Start with a user-friendly and visually appealing website. Invest in professional photography and compelling product descriptions to make your offerings stand out. Shane also adopted this strategy. His new ‘SHIFT – The Amazon Experts website’ is featured on One Page Love, a gallery showcasing the best single-page websites, templates, and resources. SHIFT was appreciated for its spotlight features, such as the unique header navigation and a project slider that loads up the client success metrics and testimonials.
  2. Embrace Social Commerce: The fusion of social media and e-commerce, known as social commerce, has become a powerhouse for online businesses. Shane emphasizes leveraging platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest to showcase your products. Engage with your audience through content that tells a story and creates a connection.  For instance, besides business-related posts, Shane frequently shares informational and inspirational stories on his LinkedIn profile.
  3. Optimize for Mobile Shopping: In the previous year, approximately 56% of total online sales originated from mobile devices. Shane suggests ensuring a seamless and secure mobile shopping experience, from browsing to checkout. A responsive design and intuitive navigation create a positive user experience, encouraging repeat business.
  4. Prioritize Customer Experience: Customer experience is paramount and the digital marketplace is no exception. Positive reviews and satisfied customers contribute significantly to building trust and attracting new business. This is what sets SHIFT apart. Shane’s personal touch, combined with the team’s expertise, ensures that businesses get more than just advice. “The team at SHIFT has been a key partner in our brand growth. Bringing expertise, knowledge, and support along with ambition and drive. We could not ask for a better partner,” endorsed Harry Symes-Thompson, Managing Director of Wild.
  5. Leverage Data Analytics: Shane believes that data analytics can help businesses to understand customer behavior, preferences, and trends. It can guide strategic decisions, from inventory management to personalized marketing campaigns. Platforms like Google Analytics and e-commerce-specific analytics tools offer valuable insights to optimize your business operations.

All in all, thriving in the digital marketplace requires a strategic and adaptive approach. If you are a business trying to figure out the online world, Shane’s ideas provide a way to not only survive but also do well in the ever-changing online market. So, following his approach, you can shape a successful e-commerce venture.
