Shopify is one of the biggest eCommerce platforms that enables businesses to take their products online and sell to a global market. The ease of setting up an online store has actually resulted in a new store being launched every other day. No matter what products your store sells today, there is always at least 10 more that have competitive products.
Don’t believe us? Well, Shopify themselves announced that they now power more than 500,000 businesses across 175 countries.
That’s definitely a lot of stores for a typical consumer to choose from. So how do you ensure that your brand sticks and your customers keep coming back to you for more?
By upping your branding game.
“Products are made in the factory. But brands are created in the mind.”
We’ve always been about enabling your Shopify store to get more sales, and at the same time, boost your customer loyalty. This time, we took your store’s branding to another level altogether by launching a feature that will make you a part of your customer’s day-to-day lives!
Plobal Apps Launches Custom iMessage Stickers for Shopify
While everyone keeps talking about WhatsApp and the Facebook messenger, no one really acknowledges the one platform that mobile usage is trending towards – iMessage. According to a study shared on Hackernoon, the millennials engage with iMessage more than any other social platform.
Come to think of it, isn’t it obvious?
With stickers, gifs, handwritten notes and other options being available on iMessage today, it is only obvious for those who own an iPhone, to use the iMessage more than any other channel. It’s easy, the interface is pleasing and of course, all of their circle is already using it.
That’s why we launched the one feature that every millennial loves to use on a day-to-day basis: STICKERS.
Sniper Gang Apparel launched their iOS and Android apps with Plobal Apps awhile back. Since then, they have been able to generate revenues worth thousands of dollars, just from their mobile app consumers. Their customers love the app for making it simple to shop their products on the go.
But most importantly, the Shopify store was able to boost their brand recall.
The Shopify store realised that their customers enjoyed carrying the swag around and often used their merchandise to communicate in their circles. Seeing this high a brand recall value for their store, they decided to take it a notch higher with Plobal Apps by launching their very own iMessage stickers.
The launch of their sticker and gif packs for customers not only boosted their brand recall value, but also helped them add an additional source of revenue to their Shopify store. But what’s more, is that it got the them a lot of word-of-mouth promotion every time their customers used the packs during a chat!
Why consider launching iMessage stickers for Shopify?
1. Increase brand recall value
While stickers are fun to use, they are also great to increase your brand recall value, which refers to the extent to while your Shopify store is remembered for its products and services distinctly.
2. Boost customer loyalty
When your brand recall value increases, it also boosts your customer loyalty and retention. Like we said who wouldn’t remember to come back and check your store for more when they’re using your stickers so actively on a day to day basis?
A 5% increase in customer retention can increase your profits by a whopping 75%.
3. Leverage word of mouth marketing
If we like something, we all have a tendency to ask where something is bought from. With cool stickers, you’re not just creating your loyal customer base, but also leveraging word of mouth marketing. Drive more customers to your Shopify store with the help of your existing customers – organic growth, nailed!
4. Increase your mobile revenue
But the highlight of it all, is creating another source of revenue for your Shopify store. When your customers are enjoying using stickers so much, why not leverage their behaviour to earn more money?
