TaskHusky On A Mission At IRCE 2018
In our mission to bring great small task development services to the universe of Shopify and BigCommerce stores of the world, last week we went to IRCE – the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibit tradeshow. It … was … a … blast! We met up with existing partners and made some brand new friends – theme creators, app developers, and digital agencies who have customers that need a little help now and then. And a lot of individual Shopify and BigCommerce merchants stopped by to chat too.
The tradeshow estimates that 6500 people attended the three-day event. And there were hundreds of booths. Shopify came BIG and put on a great show with a starship-themed booth for ShopifyPlus complete with special effects. BigCommerce was there too and even put on their own side-event called the Growth Summit – we stopped by for a visit there too.

Representing Pro Development Services at IRCE
We’ve gone to a lot of Shopify events and we also attended the BigCommerce Growth Summit, but this was our first time attending and exhibiting at a big, international eCommerce event like IRCE. And as you can see, we made sure that everyone had a great time. We had the Blues Brothers in our booth – hey … it’s Chicago! They were there to make sure that everyone who wanted to got a great, memorable selfie. Everyone got a pair of our awesome TaskHusky sunglasses to take home while we introduced them to who we are and what we do.

And that was really interesting too.
We told everyone that TaskHusky makes eCommerce problems go away. We fix the issues and make the website tweaks that agencies and big developers don’t want to do … and that’s why everyone loves us. It’s a special niche, and we fill it professionally with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
What made that so interesting to me is how people embraced that simple message and commented back to us. So, without further ado, here are:
The Top Ten Comments Made About TaskHusky at IRCE 2018
“Oh I get it … you didn’t build the house, but you’ll come and fix my fence.”
Yep. We’ll even install the fence if you want.
“You’re like the Uber for Shopify!”
Never thought of it that way, but sure. Start a task when you need us, we’ll leave you alone when you don’t. But all of our developers are full-time with us.
“Sounds like personal tech support.”
Right. But only for Shopify and BigCommerce stores. Specializing on platforms keeps us efficient and costs low.
“Unlimited revisions and no contract? Sounds too good to be true.”
We hear that a lot. But it’s true. The task isn’t done until you’re satisfied.
“I want new header images and specials formatted and installed every week … I could just set that up as tasks and you’ll do it?”
Sure … love to help.
“You’re like a website handyman.”
Exactly … but we work over the magical internet and don’t get to wear those cool toolbelts.
“Theme updates always break stuff … you fix that?”
All the time. It’s one of the most common tasks we do.
“You guys have the best booth at IRCE.”
The customer’s always right. But our service is even better. :-)
“That’s way cheaper than the agency.”
They’re not set up to handle small tasks. We stay in our lane. That’s why agencies and development shops love us and send us customers.
“I need you!”
Yes … yes you do. ;-)
Bringing Our Shopify and BigCommerce Message to the People
Things worked out so well that we are going to try to outdo ourselves at IRCE again next year.
