The last weekend before Black Friday

Tomorrow starts the last weekend before Black Friday. There are different ways to approach it: Take a break and relax because the next few weeks are going to be busy. Work on the last minute things you need done. Or a mix of both. Given how 2020 has been, any...

Create the right environment to grow customers

I planted quite a bit of garlic in our newest garden beds that have been quite fertile. I had some leftover so I planted some in our old lawn that was recently covered with cardboard and wood chips. The garlic in the garden beds is mostly up after two weeks....

Trimming back customer behavior for better results

This season I'm going to be doing some aggressive pruning to our Japanese maples. The previous owner didn't take care of them well so they've grown into mutant octopus trees. They are so dense with leafs and twigs that I've been forced to wait until they drop their leafs to...

Your Black Friday checklists

It's time to create two Black Friday checklists. By now you should know what you're going to be doing for Black Friday, but a checklist will help you make sure nothing is missed. You're going to want two different lists. A Do list. A Check list. (Also called a Confirm...

Keep your key Shopify performance indicators easy to find

I was working with a friend on a metrics dashboard for his business. He wanted to have a better idea about a handful of key indicators he was watching. They measured how well his next two weeks would be and then overall how his business has been doing so far....

Which part of the chicken does the nugget come from?

Every other week I get an email newsletter from my kid's school. For the most part it's typical boring information dispersion. Every now and then though, a bit of creative genius shines through like this: Nutrition Services is Hiring! Are you, or someone you know, looking for job in the...

When your breadcrumbs lead poor Hansel right into the witch's oven

Last week I encountered a store who was using another SEO app that added Breadcrumb structured data. Incorrectly. You might have heard JSON-LD for SEO doesn't include Breadcrumb structured data because it's not possible to automatically create it correctly for every theme.
