All Web’s 2019 Review
I like to reflect at the end of each year to evaluate our growth, short comings, opportunities, and experiences. 2019 has been no different than any other year as we have had a roller coaster of a ride. Let me take you on a quick trip down memory lane!
Meeting New Friends at IRCE
IRCE 2019 in Chicago was the best one I have been to yet. Yahoo Small Business invited the Merchant Solutions developers to join them in booth. Hats off to the YSB team, they really know how to make a small town team feel welcomed! I loved the outside of the box thinking and the creativity the team curated. Having the developers on hand to answer technical questions, showcase some amazing Yahoo stores, and give insight on comparing the platform to others was smart and convenient for the event attendees.
Women in Business Webinar
Yahoo finds opportunities at every corner to showcase successful stores and business owners. This was no different, except focusing on some amazing women in the ecommerce world. I was honored to be invited to be a part of the panel, and can honestly say that I have learned a lot through this experience. Running a small business, I understand the struggles of finding new ways to overcome obstacles. The biggest takeaway you might ask? Every business is different. You need to morph your business with solutions to best serve YOUR customers, not your competitors. Find unique ways to stand out!
Let’s Build A Float
One thing we learned this year is that not all of our clients fit into a package. Well honestly, we always knew that, and that is one of our core values. This year we pushed that to the limit. When a business turns 100 years old, it’s a reason to celebrate in a BIG way. So, why not build a really cool parade float to enter into all the local summer parades. Before you ask, no, we have no experience building parade floats. But there isn’t anything this team isn’t willing to put a lot of research, time and effort into to learning. We have all the skills: creativity, budget minded, handy, and even a little crazy! Mix these all together, and you get an award winning parade float!
Looking Forward to 2020
Throughout this year, I have learned that this team is in it together, through thick and thin. They always seem to arise to the occasion, no matter what the circumstances. All Web has an unspoken code of family, teamwork, and dedication. I couldn’t be more proud to be an All Webber in 2019, and I am looking forward to 2020. I have a feeling there are big things on the horizon, and it’s going to be an amazing year.
