Expect some neat things in Shopify regarding this very soon. But for now I am curious if you guys have any tips on promotion strategies, viral marketing & co.

Great idea Daniel. Another source of information is over at Digital Point’s Forums. You might have to weed through the muck, but there is some useful information there.

I’ve got something in the works for all Shopify users. Two things actually. One of the things is something that some of you have been asking for from the Shopify guys and the alternatives have been lacking to say the least. That’s all I’ll say right now. I will have more information for everyone in the next few days.

Stay tuned. ;)

One of the best 3-minutes I spent in terms of getting good feedback on how the site was going was adding Google Analytics.

I only came across it here on the forums, but it gives LOTS of information about site traffic, where people are going, goals, targets, ROI blah blah blah. If you’ve not come across it you should give it a look.

As all 5 fingers on hand are not equal so don't stick on only one thing to get success in your life. So here are some of the tips:


  1. Always be focused on your goal. 
  2. Use less words and work on action.
  3. Work for what you don't have and accelerate your life accordingly.
  4. Be Impressive.
  5. Build a platform for yourself as people desperately want to know you.

SMS marketing is something to consider to stand out from the competition and build closer and more personal connections with your customers. If you have not yet familiarized yourself with the topic, it’s definitely time to do that and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.

To help you gain a better understanding of SMS marketing and get ready to launch your first campaign, check out Senderium on Shopify app store. You will be able to get a step by step guidance and find some good tips for convenient ways to stay in touch with your customers and get the most out of your campaigns.

Some benefits of SMS marketing:

SMS works as an independent marketing channel, but can also be a great tool for complementing other marketing channels. For example, take advantage of SMS high open rate (98%) and send out an SMS reminder to check out your latest email newsletter.
You can keep your customers in the loop by sending them reminders about abandoned cart items, appointments, order status updates, confirmations etc.
Use SMS to collect feedback from your customers and provide customer support.
