Riff on the best ideas

The past couple of weeks I've been listening to a lot of cover songs. I like them because they are familiar but also have a touch of surprise. Especially when they cross-genres. This idea of taking something that works and tweaking it to make it unique works well with ideas...

Promote your best products during the holiday season

During the holiday season (and any busy period), it's important to promote your best products. Promote a weak product and you risk losing the sale.

Evaluate your November customer cohort to find repeat customers

December 1st marks the close of the important November customer cohort. This group of customers are the ones who first bought in November. Typically the majority from your Black Friday deals. This makes them important to monitor over the next year: Did they buy again or did were they a...

How much value loyal customers add to your Shopify store

Have you ever wondered how much a loyal, repeat customer spends over their lifetime? There's Average Lifetime Value but that includes one-time customers.

Thank you

Today marks Thanksgiving in the US. If you celebrate it, happy Thanksgiving to you. If you don't, happy Thursday-before-Black-Friday. Official holiday or not, today's a good day to be thankful for who you have in your life and how you can help them. That includes family, friends, employees, and customers....

Access your 4th quarter metrics to track this holiday season

The holiday season can be chaotic. To help out, I've given every Repeat Customer Insights store access to the 4th quarter reports, no matter what subscription plan. (Normally only part of the $99 Growth plan) This means you'd be able to track dozens of different metrics and behaviors during this...

Test your New Customer Welcome campaign

One thing to test out this week before Black Friday is any automation that adds new customers to your New Customer Welcome campaign. This is a pretty simple automation, complexity-wise, but it's a vital one. You want to be confidant that every new customer who orders is added to the...
