WeShopSC: Empowering Small Businesses Across South Carolina
Over the past 15 months, the Beyond Main team has been hard at work, in collaboration with Main Street South Carolina, to develop a statewide e-commerce marketplace. We're thrilled to introduce WeShopSC.com, a virtual marketplace designed to help local entrepreneurs and artisans showcase their unique products and services online. In August, WeShopSC officially launched as South Carolina's largest collection of small businesses.
Earlier this month, the Beyond Main team visited South Carolina to offer hands-on support. We traveled to four different counties, covering over 2,000 miles, to work closely with more than 75 small businesses. Our focus during this trip was on providing essential training in e-commerce, marketing, and photography.
Meeting the passionate small business owners and hearing their inspiring stories was a truly remarkable experience for our team. We're excited to have had the opportunity to offer them valuable insights to expand their reach and build brand awareness.
As our Beyond Main Marketplace continues to grow, we're proud to announce that we now have over 600 small businesses from across the nation actively participating on our platform. This growth is a testament to our commitment to supporting and uplifting small businesses, not only in South Carolina but throughout the United States.
