We've just added an awesome new feature to Bold's Multi-Currency app that lets your customers shop AND pay in any currency they like!
Helping our community is something everyone at Bold Commerce strives to be a part of, and Extra Life is no exception! We're proud to be a part of our community, so we try to give back as much as we can.
This year we wanted to give back bigger than we ever have. Last year we raised over $4,000 with your support and put on a ~30 person LAN . This year we're aimed to host a 100 person LAN on game day with a goal of raising $20,000!.
Black Friday is less than a month away, so if you haven't already, now is the time to plan, prep, and most importantly let your customers know what's coming down the pipeline!
88% of small business owners say social media is effective for branding, content, marketing, and word of mouth.
So staying on top of your social game is key to your BFCM success. Incase you still need convincing, here are a few more reasons:
One of the easiest ways to increase your average order value (AOV) this holiday season is with a classic upsell; a customer chooses an item to purchase, and as that item is added to the cart (or when they reach the checkout page) they're offered an upgrade to a bigger size or premium version.
We had the absolute pleasure of taking over Shopify's Snapchat story on September 14!
What is Snapchat?
Snapchat is a mobile app that allows you to take pictures or 10 second videos and share them in real time. Users can send their ‘snaps’ directly to one of their followers or add it to their ‘story’, which is then available to all their followers for 24 hours.
When was the last time you were shopping online, made it to the cart page, and were told, "you're only $16.99 away from free shipping?" It's probably more than you even realize.
Have you ever wondered why online stores do that? Well, it's because it works! When customers know exactly how close they are to receiving a promotion (like free shipping or a free gift), you can increase their average checkout total by 20-30%.
Video is what people want.
- The amount of time online users spend watching videos has grown 38.5% in the past 2 years
- 64% of all internet traffic globally is videos
- 4x as many consumers would rather watch a video about a product than read about it.
- Having video content on pages can contribute to 157% increase in organic traffic from search engines
- Product videos increase the likelihood of purchases by 85%
Now I don't know about you, but personally, if I had a problem on my store, I’d much rather watch a quick video than read a support page.
What comes to mind when you think about your last experience as a customer? Did you walk away from the experience with good things to say, or did it leave much to be desired...
If your customer service sucks, it doesn't matter how good your product or marketing is. Customer service is something every company needs to get right to grow. Here's why:
We can't say it enough: our merchant's success is our success. Our company mantra is to "Build the best company to attract the best people who build the best products and provide the best support and services SO THAT we can empower entrepreneurs to achieve success."
