Nice to meet you!
My name is Andrew Lowry, and I have been in love with the internet for longer than I can remember. I have been selling things for many years, so it is no surprise that I am now doing my life's work as an Offline Marketing Coordinator at Shopify. I help pull off amazing events that help merchants across the world run a better business. I also have a passion for building websites. Feel free to scroll down to check out my portfolio!
Lessons From Behind the Glass
Lessons From Behind The Glass is a self-published book written by Allyson Tufts that is a hilarious take on the rollercoaster of emotions that come along with having a son or daughter playing competitive sports. It holds a special place in my heart, as it was the first Ecommerce site I have ever built which had real sales. I had built many other sites in the past for fun, but this was the first one with real orders coming in. The book is doing extremely well, and is now in many Chapters and Canadian Tire locations.

Straight Outta Apparel Co.
Straight Outta Apparel Co is probably my favourite E-Commerce story, as the way it all started was rather serendipitous. I noticed the virality of people sharing the Straight Outta Compton graphic all over social media, with the word 'Compton' replaced by their own hometown. A lightbulb went off in my head to build a t-shirt shop around this idea, and 48 hours later straightoutta.co was launched. I grew it to over $1000 in sales in 3 weeks and sold the company shortly after, and it is still being run by the new owner today!
Wine About It!
Wine About It is a print shop that is meant to be quirky and fun, and allow customers to share their love for wine in a hilarious way on posters, tote bags, and more. While it didn't necessarily take off and came with no shortage of challenges, it is still extremely important to me because it was a huge learning experience. I have learned (and iterated on) the importance of consistent content publishing, razor sharp Facebook ads, and website layout/design, among many others. While my energy is now being focussed on a new shop, Wine About It is still live and can be found here.

"Andrew is the best manager I have ever worked for. He shows an incredible love for Shopify and willingness to continually go above and beyond. Andrew is one of the most empathetic people I know. During my time at Shopify, he and I would talk about different ways to improve our communication as a company with our employees and our merchants. He has taken entrepreneurship seriously and has the boldness to try, learn and fail. Andrew is one of the main reasons I enjoyed working at Shopify because he is an incredible advocate, and is representative of the culture that Shopify is trying to foster."
"Throughout his time at Shopify, Andrew has shown a great deal of care for both our merchants and Shopify’s employees. He consistently completes projects with an impeccable amount of detail, insight and organization. Andrew is excellent at managing priorities while maintaining deep and meaningful relationships with his teammates and his squad. This combined with his personal retail experience (both through running his own stores and Shopify’s retail tours) makes him an excellent fit for the role. I have no doubt that he’d be an exceptional addition to your team."
