    I'm not sure either, both of those are pretty hyped at the moment and the two things aren't even mutually exclusive. Shopify combined with instagram - either as main or just partial/supplementary traffic source - is used by many members on BHW.

    Isn't shopify a eCommerce platform and Instagram a platform for promoting things?

    Not sure how to answer this question. Two entirely different platforms. Instagram is still growing it's user base tremendously.

    He is talking about instagram and shopify methods, not platforms as seperate.

    Both are still hyped up, some newbies go for IG because its easier to setup and cheaper

    Shopify is a good choice if you want to focus your business instead of dealing with technical stuff to setup your store.
    Personally, I would choose to use WooCommerce (Wordpress based) as I have a technical background and I could customize every single pixel on my own.

    Instagram is a great platform to promote your biz online. You should seriously look into IG marketing to reach more target audience.
    I have seen a better conversion via IG as compared to FB. Ultimately, it still depends on your niche and target audience.

    The analogy is just wrong...did you just try to create a post but didn't have a good topic?

    I hear nail salons are a trend now, not bank saving accounts anymore. Thats about as logical as the question is
