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!.
Free shipping is one of the greatest marketing tools available to an online store.
In a survey by Walker Sands Communications, 90% of people said that having an order ship for free is the biggest incentive to add more to their cart.
Not only are you helping your customers save money, but it's an awesome way to squeeze a little extra from every sale that goes through your store by encouraging visitors to add an extra product to their cart to reach that free shipping threshold.
Upsells are a great way to encourage every shopper to buy more. Not only are you making their order better with items that go great with their original purchase, you're also making more money!
Amazon make millions every day by upselling with their recommendation widgets. You've probably used them yourself when you see complementary items in the "People also bought" panes.
Luckily, you can unlock the the same techniques as that billion dollar behemoth without hiring a team of coders — apps like Bold Upsell will help you drive revenue through pop-ups and special offers.
The traditional upsell or cross-sell can be great on their own, they both encourage customers to spend more money and increase your store's average order value (AOV).
That sounds great, doesn't it?
But do you want to really take upselling to the next level? Then it's time to unleash the BOGO!
No, that's not a lagoon monster! It's a buy one get one free offer. With our apps, you can easily combine two great sales techniques to create the ultimate special offer.
The "buy one get one", but as an Upsell.
That's right. Not only can you present customers with an upsell (i.e. "only $14.99 more for this bigger, better product!), but you can offer it at a discounted price (the "get one" part), using Bold Upsell & Bold Discounts together.
During the holiday season, thousands of brick-and-mortar retailers will offer "gift with purchase" promotions, where customers who spend a certain amount during a sale will receive a free bonus gift.
These types of promotions are great for increasing the amount that customers spend on every order that goes through your store, also known as the average order value.
It seems like natural disasters have taken over our news feeds for the past couple of months.
Wildfires have been burning through British Columbia the entire summer, floods in India have killed hundreds, and Hurricane Harvey has ripped across the Gulf Coast, leaving thousands of people in distress.
It's easy to feel helpless in the face of such destruction, and I know I often wish I could help out, but don't know where to start.
One of the oldest sales tricks in the book is the classic upsell; a customer chooses an item to purchase, and the salesperson recommends an additional item (like a protection plan or extra batteries) to go along with it.
This strategy can work wonders for a store's bottom line, especially when they have immediate communication with the customer (like when they get to the cash register). But how can it be done online, where that personal interaction is difficult to replicate?
In this post, we'll show you how to do that, plus how to set up a high-converting upsell offer in less than 10 minutes.
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.
A returns app is a great way to keep your store organized.
It keeps you and your customers updated throughout the entire returns process, giving them more flexibility and control over how the return is handled while keeping everything organized on the back end.
But we decided to shake things up! With our latest release, we’re taking our Returns Manager app for Shopify to the next level by annoucing 5 new features that, believe it or not, make it even better!
