Shopify – Mailchimp integration & GDPR

Let us tell you how Shopify – Mailchimp integration works. Every email address you collect on your website, whether that’s through checkout, or the newsletter sign-up form, creates a Customer within Shopify Admin. Depending on the path taken by a user, this Customer will have different amount of information filled out. If they go through checkout, and select “Accept Marketing”, they will have a lot of details, such as name, surname, email, delivery address, billing address, phone number etc. If, however, they use the newsletter sign-up form, it will only hold their email address, nothing else. Every so often (10 minutes or so), Mailchimp checks with your list of Customers on Shopify, and adds any new emails. Here’s the confusing part.

What you are trying to do is called Double […]

Positive Partnership

Quiz Master Shop does not sell “Widgets”. It doesn’t sell items that can be stacked on shelves and shipped through the post. It doesn’t sell a range of products that will appear in a catalogue, from which the customer chooses. Quiz Master Shop sells quizzes. In fact, Quiz Master Shop is a totally new way to buy quizzes.

Furthermore, they can download the quizzes as and when they want, but, to make things even easier for them, they can subscribe and receive a […]

Becoming a freelancer is a good idea if you know you can be really strict with yourself. You won’t have a boss to keep on nagging you to do the job, you need to be 2in1. Personally I found that was the hardest thing to do at the beginning. It is all up to you how you going to do things and how you will approach a client, which projects to take and which not. Until you get into a routine of doing things, it might feel like a real struggle. It is always harder to learn good habits and those bad – die hard.

Shopify. What, where and how?

In most cases, companies do not have a dedicated online store person, so they need to train a few people, if not the whole team. The manual was created to help with that (and to reduce the quantities of emails asking about adding products, but you didn’t hear me say that). You can sign-up for 14 days free trial of Shopify. If you do, you can follow this tutorial to learn the basics of Shopify store management.

Project Milestones

Hey! Recently we’ve heard that a lot of businesses in our area have problems with Web Designers taking money for projects and not delivering anything. We are a new company, and as such we don’t have a huge portfolio of happy clients, so we needed to address this issue so people are more willing to trust us. We don’t want people wondering if we’ll actually do the work they are paying for, it’s bad for PR and the lot.

We decided to use that same system, upgraded a little, to incorporate milestones, and client logins.
