  1. @frankl I'm having trouble getting the Facebook product ads to send traffic. I'm not quite sure I have it set up correctly. Here's what I've done so far: 1. Business page 2. Set up ads account 3. Uploaded catalog 4. Set up campaign but not sure if I have the dynamic ads set up correctly. I'm confused as to how to set up the deep linking to send visitors directly to product page. 5. Setup budget and payment method and target audience. I'm out of ideas unless Facebook algorithms it take awhile to start ranking products. Please advise me when you have a chance. Or if anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated.
  2. @Tsimi @raiwa I would like to run a contest to promote sign-ups. I would like to reward points towards the next order for each new referral. I was wondering if each registered user could refer unlimited friends at any time.
  3. @burt convenience is the key to user experience. How hard would it be to code a Tell a friend or refer a friend module with SMS capabilities? Here's a brainstorm: 1. A logged in customer click on tell-a-friend/refer-a-friend button. 2. A pop up with optional email and phone fields appears. 3. Customer enters either the friend's email or phone number (comma separated if multiple) 4. Account immediately credited with points. Customer uses points toward next order.
  4. @frankl I've been thinking hard about your Refer a friend suggestion. Are you using such a system? It's also a great way to get the customer to do the work as @burt said.
  5. @Tsimi My goal is to build a customer base naturally. Maybe on every product page could be overkill. So I'm left with the question I'm left that I'm asking myself. What is a great referral program and what is the best way to promote it? @raiwa I didn't think about the abuse. Maybe a Tell-a-Friend feature could be added to your program. My idea: Place a Tell-a-Friend button somewhere on the product page. Once clicked a small box pops up with a message "Suggest this product to a friend and receive X amount of points toward your next purchase if they buy. Learn more." Once they click the Learn more link they could be taken to the FAQ page. Don't mind me just exploring possibilities 😉😀
  6. @raiwa @Tsimi Are there any plans to make referral points part of the program more public? Someone suggested to me that I should use a Refer-a Friend program to gain customers. I was thinking that a link/button from the product page to a page explaining the referral program would be great. Thanks.
  7. I'll look into Facebook product ads and competitions sound nice. Can you refer me to a great read on contests/competitions as a starting point? Thanks for your suggestions
  8. @frankl I agree. My focus is to get them there organically at least once. User experience doesn't get them there the first time. It keeps them around. Any suggestions? @burt Great point. What other things you focused on to rebound from the update? @MrPhil Ranking high in Google has definitely become a science. I think I do focus too much on SEO and not enough on social media marketing. People are sharing my pages but not a huge impact yet. I'm focusing on getting them there organically so I can hopefully sell them something. That'll relieve my PPC budget.
  9. @wHiTeHaT thanks for your great comments. If you're selling a product, what question are you answering? You're correct about engagement. That is the challenge I'm having.
  10. No comment on Rankbrain? @Jack_mcs @MrPhil @burt @raiwa @Tsimi @frankl
  11. I was reading an article about Google's ranking factor called Rankbrain. From what I gathered, it uses user intent and artificial intelligence to rank pages. The article demonstrates how simply changing a search can really shift the results. It is suggested that Rankbrain is one of the top 3 ranking factors along with links and content. @Jack_mcs your HT SEO module has help us a lot. How can we use your module to achieve better rankings based on Rankbrain? Read more here
  12. @wHiTeHaT I don't want to seem stupid. Could those boxes be used to show like video demonstrations of featured products? Like you would see on flat screen TVs in shopping malls. I assume that would take some extensive coding to fit a video into a smaller area.
  13. I'm looking at things from a user experience viewpoint. I wouldn't want my customers to feel trapped in the checkout funnel. @burt floating modules would be great. It would be great to implement floating content modules
  14. What if the customer have a question during checkout? Not trying to challenge your logic. I hope you don't take it that way. The main reason I'm asking questions is sometimes I monitor Real Time activity in Google Analytics and I see customers enter the checkout process and bounce around from page to page. Many drop off altogether. So there's something grabbing their attention. I believe your addon will help with that. Also, I'm very excited about this addon and expect positive results. @frankl, @burt and @Tsimi what are your assessment to this particular reply?
  15. I understand your point. Keeping a logo would be nice. Looking at it in mobile if I hide the navbar there is no way to navigate to shopping cart for changes. Links to reviews, new products, etc are not needed during checkout. The goal I think is to remove access to other parts of the store to attempt to avoid distraction during the checkout process. In my opinion, I think all that is needed to be accessible during checkout is logo, shopping cart and contact us.
