Why Your Business's Website Will Become More Important In A Post-Pandemic World - Forbes Why Your Business's Website Will Become More Important In A Post-Pandemic World - Forbes Posted: 30 Nov 2020 08:18 AM PST STEVE WASTERVAL It's hard to believe, but as we entered 2020, there were still many entrepreneurs and small businesses who treated their website more like a static brochure.

That was a humbling blow for eBay, the world's first online auction platform for person-to-person transactions. It also explains why Shopify stock has soared more than 3,700% over the past five years. During that same period, eBay stock rose 76% and Amazon stock advanced 375%. Image source: Getty Images. Investors might be reluctant to buy Shopify stock right now, since it trades at over 290 times forward earnings.
