I just came across this app, it was a sponsored link on my facebook feed (go figure)
The app hasn't been reviewed by Shopify yet and there aren't any reviews on either. The developer also doesn't have any other apps...
So i'm just wondering if I should risk installing it or not.
Good Day Tanmit
I have been using Wheelio for a few month now paying $14.92 dollars a month for the basic version that doesn't even have email validation. Anyway, I was looking for Wheelio alternatives but they all have one unique problem monthly subscription with the minimum functionality. And I have found one just recently called Spinio you can check all details here http://bit.ly/wheelio_alternative. What is great about it that it sells for a one-time price and have much much more features than its competitors. But most importantly it can be installed on both Shopify Stores and WordPress blogs you have.
I think this is what you are looking for. Best wishes.
Gamification is a great way to engage web visitors and this what Wheelio aims to achieve for its users. The idea is simple - visitors enter their email id and get a chance to win a discount coupon by spinning the wheel. But here's a catch - most of the people are a) reluctant to share their email address and b) People often enter spam email to get the discount coupon. Though there is a validation check for spam emails but they do come with a higher priced plan.
If your main objective is to engage your web visitors and turn them into loyal customers, then I would suggest you give browser notifications a chance. Apart from solving the two problems stated above, browser notifications also help you to - a) re-target users abandoning carts, b) Engage users and c) Retain these users.
Hope this helps :)
