Hi guys, I've got an old site, and am setting up a new company in a similar niche. The old site has about DA of 24. What's the best way to use the authority of the old brand to help the new one? Thanks
I've got all current clients on Squarespace for cheap-n-cheerful and Bigcommerce for anything serious. Probably 75% of the new clients I get want to know about Shopify and I have to spend significant time convincing them that Bigcommerce will meet their needs just fine.
However, I'm not super familiar with Shopify and I'm sure there's a use case for it. The comparison articles I've found are either dated, clickbaity and boilerplate, or both. I'm aware that Shopify's templates are a bit prettier, but beyond that, is there anything I should be aware of where Shopify is significantly better than BC (aside from apparently better marketing)?
I've never been unable to meet a client's needs with BC, but will spend some time learning Shopify if it can do significant things BC can't. My impression right now is that Shopify's got fewer features so you end up spending a heap on third party plugins, and to compensate they have nicer templates.
I'm looking for some good video or podcast channels to further my learning as a business owner and leader. My ecommerce business has 20 employees, we manufacture about half of our product in-house, and use outside manufacturing for the rest of the product. We use Magento (although will be shifting to Shopify soon to simplify) as a platform for the website, and use Netsuite as our inventory management and CRM program.
Before starting 3 years ago, I had zero work experience and an impractical undergraduate degree in marketing. I'm doing well all things considered, but am constantly frustrated/embarrassed by my lack of business acumen, and am looking for a good resource to help me build up knowledge and confidence in any/all areas that I can. Any suggestions are appreciated!
Over the past few weeks, I've had some messages which at first, appear like a normal customer either enquiring about an order, making a complaint or pointing out a mistake on the website. All of them contain some sort of link, which I'm assuming is malicious...
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up about these kind of emails and tell everyone to be careful what links you open and who you respond to.
I don't know how these scammers are finding me, but if anyone has any security tips on how to avoid this then I'd really appreciate your advice
I want to know if designing my page by adding banners with images that has text already text on it could damage my SEO. To explain further... i have a home page where i want to add some images with some explaining text about a company and in those images i want to add the explanation text but to the image directly. Like i want a designer to do all the text and then add the image to the page. Is this method bad for SEO ? or by just using the right plugins and site settings is enough?
Full disclosure: I work for an online shopping cart solution company called Snipcart.
I made this video presentation on how to optimize your shopping cart and what to look for in your checkout flow to reduce cart abandonment and increase conversions.
I am only posting it here because NOTHING is being sold in the video and you can use the information to check for problems with your cart on any platform (so if you're using Foxycart, Magento, WordPress...anything... the information will stay the same).
This is part of a 4-part series on the topic. Part 4 will be more of a live demo which will not be posted in these forums, but parts 1-3 are universally practical! Hopefully you find the information of value!
First time drop shipper. My supplier is based in CA, and I am based in Oregon. I am getting pretty confused on the sales tax component of this. I am using WooCommerce as my platform, and am working on setting up my tax rates. Not sure what/how to import, what I am responsible for, etc.
