Commerce: a force for good

This admittedly self-serving report from Shopify may be of interest to subscribers. Here is a section:

The success of millions of independent business owners is critical to our world’s economic prosperity. Every new business adds more value to the world. It’s not a zero-sum game, and commerce benefits from more voices rather than fewer. But entrepreneurship is challenging. That’s why we remove barriers and friction for independent business owners. We create tools for anyone, anywhere, to start and grow a business and impact the global community.

There is no doubt that the software companies like Shopify and Wix.com sell, which allows anyone to create an ecommerce site in a couple of hours, is a major innovation. However, the job of marketing that website so it can find clients is an altogether more involved process.
