What to check first if your Shopify store sales have dried up

I've been hearing rumors of many Shopify store and ecommerce stores in general starting to see sales dry up. It could be due to COVID changes, economic stagnation, or any number of other factors that impact buying behavior. Checking your sales and order counts is one way to see if...

When to stop marketing to lukewarm customers

One question I hear often is when should a store stop marketing to lukewarm customers. In Repeat Customer Insights I'd recommend using the advice in the automatic segments. It's recommendations will include recommendations to not market, for example in some of the defected customer segments. But if you don't have...

How marketing strategies mirror plant lifecycles

Last week I received a couple of perennial kale plants along with seeds to grow another couple hundred. Perennials are useful food plants. Since they can live for years they take more planning and patience than annuals (which will only live for a year-ish). You have to research what kind...

Analyzing my app's "products" to find improvements

I've been wondering which areas of Repeat Customer Insights were most used by customers so I can prioritize my time. Yesterday I started an analysis to look at the "traffic" for each report. If I consider each report as it's own product, then use a lot of the product analysis...

Did I want unflavored, lemon/lime, orange, or berry flavor? Berry might be good but how berry is berry? Too-berry? Luckily the...

How your customers automatically decay with RFM

RFM scores are built from three components: Recency, Frequency, and Monetary. Though they are scored the same, they act differently. Recency is an odd one and can look the most chaotic for some. That's because Recency will start to decay from the moment a purchase is made and get lower...

The garlic from beyond the solar system

I was thinking about what garlic to grow next fall and began browsing descriptions online. Last year my 1st and 2nd pick were sold out because I didn't plan ahead. I came across one seller who has a bunch of new types, many from wild garlics they've been collecting and...

Perfect analytics data is a mirage

Yesterday I was talking with someone about their Google Analytics setup. Since they were using a 3rd party platform to sell their product, they weren't able to get most of their funnel metrics. The platform sends some basic data to them (e.g. traffic amounts, urls) but no referal, campaign, or...
