  • T-Mobile's Home Broadband Carrot
    by Jeff Kagan on March 25, 2019 at 7:43 pm

    Not long ago, T-Mobile COO Mike Sievert said the company would start selling a wireless home broadband service. Now, it looks as though it has begun a pilot program of invited users. However, there is an important catch with respect to this new service: the motive behind it. Sievert made it clear that growth with this new service will be possible only with a Sprint merger. That's too bad. […]

  • Switching from POD to manufacturers with Shopify.
    by /u/nicklolololololol on March 25, 2019 at 6:41 pm

    Hi, I've been running ABSÜRE CLOTHING for a little less than a year now using Printful + Shopify combo. After a while grinding and recently investing in SEO, we are getting a decent amount of revenue and traffic. At this point I have realised I am doing a little over £15 over £50 orders, which to me it seems ridiculous, so I plan to switch to manufactured products in 2 months time. What is it that I should know about this switch? Is there anyone here that has done something similar recently that could give me some tips regarding how to ship orders, print labels and if there is any manufacturer based in London here that prints DTG ? submitted by /u/nicklolololololol [link] [comments […]

  • Facebook / Insta eCommerce - Products say "Out of stock"???
    by /u/mikaselm on March 25, 2019 at 4:43 pm

    Hello, all! I've been trying to get my products up on Facebook, with the goal of enabling native checkout from within the facebook platform... ​ I've uploaded my items into my catalog in business manager (via csv upload), and everything looks great there. All items show up and they're all listed as in-stock and it's great. ​ When I go do my actual shop, however, only one item shows up, and it's listed as out of stock. I was able to contact Facebook about it, but they've not been helpful at all. Does anyone have an idea as to what this means or what I could be doing wrong? ​ I'm sure more info is needed for troubleshooting, but I'm not what's relevant. I'll update with any requested info, tho. ​ Thanks! submitted by /u/mikaselm [link] [comments […]

  • BI and Big data. insights for success?
    by /u/shootinputin33 on March 23, 2019 at 11:57 pm

    Im considering taking a BI and Big data course, And i wanted to consult with you reedits and specially SQL beasts and people familiar with the topic. back in the day when i learned branding and marketing, i really like doing the diagnostics. searching for small pieces of the puzzle in order to build the bigger picture From my point of view the huge amounts of data can provide in many cases insights and solutions that can lead you to a much more "calculated" strategy, user experience, personalisation and etc. I realise its a hard job to look in a pile of trash for a golden nugget, but the fact i know it is hiding there, makes me even more want to find it. here also pops up my question. I am thinking of building my website on shopify platform because i dont have any experience with word press and etc. will i have less access to data about my costumers and the overall analytics? And does a "simplified" platform like shopify even require serious knowledge of BI and Big Data? is there any other platforms with more access and good UX? Will i have more access to more "valuable" data by building my own website using word press and HTML? appreciate any help, Love you guys submitted by /u/shootinputin33 [link] [comments […]

  • Migrating Etsy shop to Shopify, looking for advice...
    by /u/wilsonreserve on March 23, 2019 at 8:49 pm

    Hi everyone, so I'm finally wanting to take the plunge and build a stand alone website instead of having all of my eggs in the Etsy basket. I just want to make sure I go about everything the smartest and most logical way as I'm not terribly familiar with Shopify. I sell tees/apparel printed by a few different DTG printers (Printful, Printify, Print Aura, etc.). I use the various POD printer's Etsy integration so my printer's fulfill the orders without me having to manually input anything. I just imported my 158 Etsy listings into Shopify "products" via a CSV file. So say I list those items in a Shopify shop and someone purchases a shirt. Am I always going to have to manually input that order to my printer? Is there a way to make it to where my Shopify store is still integrated with my printers and all orders get automatically submitted and fulfilled without me having to input them? I really hope I don't have to go back and manually list these again using Printful/Printify's Shopify app integration. Thanks for any help or suggestions you can provide! submitted by /u/wilsonreserve [link] [comments […]
