Rewardical adds enhanced support for Shopify stores!

Today we released enhanced support (with instant, verified claims) for Shopify’s APIs, a big first step in greatly expanding our worldwide network of merchants that will award you Rewardicals with every purchase. 

First, in case you’re not familiar with Shopify, here’s brief recap:

Shopify is a Canadian e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. It is also the name of its proprietary e-commerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems.  Shopify offers online retailers of a suite of services, including payments, marketing, shipping and customer engagement tools to simplify the process of running an online store for small merchants.

  • The company reported that it had more than 600,000 merchants using its platform as of August 2017, with total gross merchandise volume exceeding $55 billion.
  • Shopify is a publicly traded company (NYSE: SHOP).
  • In September 2015, Amazon.com announced it would be closing its Amazon Webstore service for merchants and had selected Shopify as the preferred migration provider.
  • In January 2017, Shopify announced integration with Amazon that would allow merchants to sell on Amazon from their Shopify stores.
  • In April 2018, Shopify announced a partnership with Deliv to offer same-day delivery capabilities to Shopify retailers.

Learn more about Shopify HERE.


What this means for SFI affiliates:

• With easy integration with the Rewardical loyalty/rewards program for Shopify merchants, shopping choices can increase exponentially.  Indeed, over 600,000 online sellers use the Shopify platform and can now instantly add Rewardical support to attract and retain customers!

• If you’re currently a Rewardical ECA (RECA) or have been thinking about becoming an RECA, consider setting up your store on Shopify.  By doing so, all purchases are verified and you can enable easy, instant auto-payments knowing all claims for tokens are valid.


Don’t forget!…

• Every Rewardical that is dished out by an RECA or Localvantia merchant generates CV (Commission Volume).  That means a Direct Commission paid to the referrer, Co-Sponsor Commissions (if buyer is an affiliate), and 12 compressed generations of Team Overrides can be earned on every sale.

Special notes for Sponsors and Team Leaders:
Be sure you’re talking to your group regularly about not only patronizing Rewardical and Localvantia merchants…but also referring new ones regularly!  Rewardical and Localvantia can become SFI mega-goldmines once we have more vendors in place.

  • Learn about pre-registering Localvantia merchants HERE.
  • Learn about referring Rewardical ECAs HERE.

One more thing…

As stated, today’s integration with Shopify is just step one.  Step two involves building an app that Shopify merchants can use to plug into Rewardical even easier and that would be listed in Shopify’s own directory of merchant tools.  Watch for future announcements about this development.


Head over to the FORUM–to the SFI NEWS DISCUSSIONS section–to discuss this announcement with your fellow SFI’ers now.

IMPORTANT MEMO FOR ALL SFI SPONSORS

To: All Sponsors
From: SFI President Gery Carson

What’s the biggest obstacle to success in SFI?  Most would agree that it’s all about the lack of activity on the part of new affiliates.  Indeed, if the “front-end” of SFI could be more efficient in creating engaged, active new affiliates, business and income would EXPLODE for all.

“Cracking this code” has proven elusive.  I really should say “re-cracking,” because, in years past, we’ve been able to engage a much higher percentage of new people.  But the numbers have fallen off, despite our best efforts.  

Why have they fallen off?  That’s the million dollar question.  But I can tell you that, over our now-20-year history, the marketplace has shifted many, many times.  What worked last month/last year no longer works this month/this year.  Technology changes, governments change laws, behaviors change.  What was once novel and exciting now no longer works…and visa versa, too!  For example, email used to work wonderfully. Today, we’re probably lucky if 5% receive and/or open the emails we send them.

So, what’s the answer?  The answer is that we have to start testing new approaches.  Moreover, we have to start doing it more scientifically, instead of simply trying to interpret the numbers on our data reports.

That scientific approach is known as “Split” testing or “A/B” testing.  Here’s essentially how it works:

Let’s say I’ve got a new product I want to sell.  I create two different ads (an “A” ad and a “B” ad).  Each is distinctively different from the other.  I expose my two ads each to the same number of people.  The ad that produces the most sales is considered the winner.  The ad with the lesser results is discarded.  I now might take the winning ad and create two variations of it.  

For example, I might try two different headlines, or two different images, or different color schemes.  From my NEW “A” and “B” I now determine again which produces the most sales…and I discard the other.  I keep repeating this process until there’s essentially no difference in results.  At this point, I should have a solid, proven ad to generate optimal results from my advertising (well, at least for now, at least until the marketplace shifts).

See how that works?  You’ve removed guessing, speculation, instinct, “gut feeling,” etc…and you’ve replaced them with scientific testing and good ole math.

And that, my friends, is what we’re going to put to work for us on the front-end.  That is, effective immediately, we will begin A/B testing a variety of new landing pages/Smart Start approaches.  And, actually, because we typically generate THOUSANDS of new sign-ups a day, we have the ability to do A/B/C or A/B/C/D or even A/B/C/D/E testing.  

That is, because we have such a large sample size available, we can actually effectively test 3, 4, 5, or more distinctly-different front-ends at the same time, putting each of the different approaches in front of an equal number of randomly chosen sign-ups.  It also means we can much more quickly determine what approach is the most effective. 

WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU

It means, VERY CLEARLY, that you need to make sure you keep your welcomes and initial contact/training GENERIC…because, at this time at least, you’re not going to know which approach your new sign-ups sees.

The good news is, a generic approach is always what I’ve recommended be used.

There’s an old saying that people don’t care what you say until they know you care.  A very wise saying that is!  It’s also true that throwing lists of things to do, lots of links, etc. at new people is, more times than not, going to confuse and/or overwhelm them.  And as a good friend has told me many times over the years, “A confused mind says no.”

So keep it brief, keep it friendly, and don’t get into any potentially-confusing specifics (no matter how harmless it may seem).  

“HOW CAN I HELP YOU?”

All of your messages should revolve around helping and serving your new PSA.  Make sure that this theme comes through loud and clear! Introduce yourself of course, but otherwise stick mainly to…

“Do you have any questions I can answer for you?”

and

“If there’s anything I can help you with, don’t hesitate to ask.”

There will be plenty of time later to recommend LaunchPad, the To-Do List, or whatever.  And, don’t forget, in the welcome letter they’ll get from SFI we’ll let them know about how to get started.  So don’t even worry about that, just break the ice and make sure they know you’re there to help them!

So…look over your welcomes/getting started materials and edit as needed.   Then stay tuned as we embark on this very important test that, with any luck, will lay the foundation for a vastly more effective front-end within a few months.  

Here we go!

Gery Carson
