    Thanksgiving and Black Friday online shopping this year had big gains on 2019, but both still fell somewhat short of expectations in what is proving to be a good if more muted holiday shopping season without the usual physical crowds to help enforce COVID-19 social distancing and many feeling the economic strain of the health

  • Email Solution for Uniquely Generated Reward Voucher
    by /u/acute_flash on November 30, 2020 at 4:46 pm

    Hi everyone! ​ I have recently started my online store, and I would like to increase my sales using email marketing. But I am not sure is there any email solution can fit my needs. ​ The kind of email marketing I would like to do is like this: - I would like my customer to take a picture of their products that purchased from my site and share it on social media and tag us. - By doing so, I can get my customers' help to promote on my behalf, and increase my brand awareness. - Of course, they are not doing this for free. Once they have shared the photos on social media. I will give them a discount voucher (via email) for their next purchase in my store, once I have verified their actions are completed. ​ So, here comes my problem, I do not know any email solution out there that can do individual targeting email. This is because I would like to send an "auto" email to each of my customers once they have done their part. All of the email solution I know (MailChimp, SendInBlue, etc) they distribute campaign email to an audience group, instead of individual email. ​ Of course, I can do it in a manual way. Creating a template email, and send it to customers one-by-one after I've verified their actions, using a random discount code generator. I am just seeking an easier way out. Do comment below if you know there is any email service that can suit my need. (hope I have described my scenario detailed enough). ​ Extras Info Web Hosting: Webflow Current Email Provider: Zoho Still exploring how to use MailChimp. submitted by /u/acute_flash [link] [comments]

  • Best way to create product catalog on Instagram?
    by /u/NobiruORBust on November 30, 2020 at 4:30 pm

    Hi everyone! I would like to set up my Instagram biz profile to have the product catalog so my products can be tagged on Instagram. It looks like my options are to either: 1) Connect my website to my Facebook page and generate the catalog there that will link to Instagram 2) Manually create a product catalog on Instagram Can I ask which method you all have used for this and why? Are there advantages to doing it one way or the other? My natural instinct is to link online store to facebook page because that is likely a lot less work than adding products manually to Instagram. But I thought I would get some ideas here first. Any other tips or good info on having on products on Instagram? I am all ears. Thank you! submitted by /u/NobiruORBust [link] [comments]

  • Best way to send out unique API keys when subscribing?
    by /u/steffapop on November 30, 2020 at 1:46 pm

    Hi, So I'm in the process of building an ecommerce store selling an online tool where you would need an API key to activate the tool. The API keys are being generated by a supplier I'm working together with so as of now I have x-amount of API keys already generated that need to forwarded to the user when signing up.I currently use WordPress/WooCommerce as check-out module and Reepay as a payment gateway. I thought about maybe using MailChimps Coupon Carrier but I'm not sure if there is a better/cheaper solution? How would you automize this in the best possible manner? Thanks. submitted by /u/steffapop [link] [comments]

  • An easy way to validate influencers. Use this to acquire yourself a small and effective army of ambassadors.
    by /u/SebastianJuhola on November 30, 2020 at 12:30 pm

    I’ve written before (find it in my post history, if you’re interested) that most “influencers” are broadcasters—not influencers, meaning that they have the ability to get a message out to a lot of people, but no authority over their buying decisions. The challenge—from a vendor perspective—is to distinguish between influencers and broadcasters. It’s borderline impossible to look at post quality, engagement rate, authenticity of comments, and draw an accurate conclusion over whether or not this person could influence people to buy your products. It’s fairly easy to spot shitty broadcasters and to know who won’t be helpful, which helps to an extent, but to really know who does have the power to influence their audience, you need to try it out. What I’ve found that works great is to go for quantity, offer really generous commissions for a limited time, and build longer relationships based on the results. Find as many micro influencers in the niche as you can, and negotiate a simple and short commission based deal. You'll quickly learn the approximate audience threshold where they won't do just commission. Stay below that. This threshold depends a lot on the niche and how lucrative your shop seems. Be super generous with your commissions short-term. The point is to get as many on board as possible. Obviously use your judgement on determining the fit of the audience. There's no point in wasting anyone's time. Analyze results and see if any deals gave good results in relation to what they posted and what their audience size is. Start working on longer-term relationships with these influencers. Be honest about the fact that you can't offer the same deal as before, but definitely make sure you can offer a fair deal. If all went well, you just validated some influencers. Rinse and repeat to build an effective group of influencers to work with long-term. I’ve seen this work wonderfully with many businesses. Good luck! submitted by /u/SebastianJuhola [link] [comments]

  • What is the process to find a good full service marketing agency for my growing ecom business?
    by /u/notpitching on November 30, 2020 at 4:26 am

    TLDR. I run a $100k/mo ecom biz and need a full service agency that can do a FB/email/Google/Pinterest marketing including organizing creation of content. As well as PR. Where do I start my research? My wife and I run a business. She designs stuff and I basically do everything else. Our business has grown a lot this year as we continue to launch new products. We will be doing $100k a month steady by the end of this year, after doing $2k in March this year I have handled the email and fb ads myself, but it became to be too time consuming and monotonous for me to continue, especially when I think an expert can do better. I outsourced my fb ad management to someone heading into Q4 on a purely commission basis with ROAS tiers. And they aren’t doing very well I am getting inventory sorted for a big promotion in Q1/Q2 next year. I am looking for a full service agency that can proactively run my marketing and help with PR. I’m looking for an established agency that has helped brands grow to 10 figures and can be a one stop shop (with obviously my involvement). I want to see how long I can run this without any employees, so I’m trying to outsource key aspects to a single partner. I don’t know where to start. I’ve googled a little bit. Neal Patel seems to be highly regarded as a marketer and he has an agency. But honestly since I don’t have much experience in e marketing, I’m really starting from a deep hole. (And no I’m not looking for PMs for your one man shop, nor am I looking for someone that can help my in only a subset of my needs. I need a full service agency. submitted by /u/notpitching [link] [comments]

  • How is my strategy for starting up?
    by /u/frustratedstudent96 on November 30, 2020 at 3:38 am

    eCommerce is the way to go. And I'd like to be part of it. Right now, I have a product in mind that I think would be great. It's consumable. Solves a problem. Margins are good. And is light weighted to ship. Doesn't seem too competitive since it's not very well known, but it also means less people are aware of it/don't care about it. Here's my strategy: Build a solid single page sales/landing page with product mockup (probably going to do woocommerce/wp since it's cheaper to maintain and at this point, I'm not mass scaling). Order a small quantity batch from a manufacture (private label) ~ willing to spend $1000 Run Google ads to product page (seems to be the best medium. Amazon also works but I like to control the entire buying process). Budget: $3000. Fulfill in house If I can sell all of them, I m pretty happy to breakeven. I'll reach out to my customers to get their feedback for version 2.0 of the product. Up until this point, I'm testing the water to see if the idea has teeth. Once proven, work on creating a social media following + branding. Switch over to shopify. Push more aggressively with ads. If this fails, I'll keep the product to myself and use it. I already like it so it's not a big deal. And it's small so storage isn't a problem. How does this roadmap sound? submitted by /u/frustratedstudent96 [link] [comments]

  • Shopify Or Wordpress For Informational Blog that will eventually sell products
    by /u/toydinosaur123 on November 30, 2020 at 2:31 am

    Hi Everyone, A little stuck here... I want to create a website that gives you all sorts of information in regards to practicing yoga and will prioritize on teaching beginners. I am currently making an ebook that i will sell on the site as well. My idea was to write out various blog posts, while mentioning my ebook that is a guide to it all in various posts. Then i would either use clickfunnels to sell the ebook or something else (woocommerce or shopify?). I do plan on writing blogs the whole time while running this website but my end goal is to transition into selling physical products that go hand in hand with yoga. I want to create this brand and be known for the products and the information at the end of the day. ​ My question is, because i am starting out blogging should i start with a wordpress site then integrate woocomerce once i begin selling products? or should i get Shopify off the get go as they seem to work better entirely when it comes to selling products. I just know shopify isnt the best when it comes to the blogging aspect, and i wanted to use the blogs as an initial way of getting the business started and growing an audience. ​ TLDR; I want to make a business that sells yoga products. But i want to begin by creating yoga blogs and an ebook to sell with those blogs. Should i start with wordpress and then use woocommerce when i sell physical products or should i just start with shopify from the beginning. submitted by /u/toydinosaur123 [link] [comments]

  • American living in China - What service can I provide?
    by /u/ttggboi on November 30, 2020 at 1:38 am

    I am an American living in China and I'm wondering how to leverage my position to provide value to people in the states. I speak intermediate Chinese and have lots of Chinese friends who would love to help out with a business of some sort. I am thinking, I can work with businesses in the USA to help them communicate with Chinese suppliers. I can do this through my friends here, or I can actually go to their warehouses in person. It costs very little to travel around in China, so this can be easy. Would this provide value to people? Any other ideas? I obviously want to make money with something in the short-term, but I'm also open to starting a business over the long term. Thanks submitted by /u/ttggboi [link] [comments]
