Let’s settle the debate of “is MRR black hat?” — A THREAD:
MRR stands for Monthly Recurring Revenue for those who don’t know already & in the eComm community it seems to be a hot topic at the moment.
MRR In and of itself is not blackhat. Pre-Checking a box on a Shopify Checkout IS. You cannot preemptively opt your customers into a subscription that they “may or may not” know about..

Is your #eCommerce store making as much as it could from email + SMS marketing?

If not, here are 5 ways to make MORE from your email + SMS marketing this year... 👇
#1: Use a Pop Up to Grow Your Email + SMS Lists

First up, make sure you're using a pop up to grow your email + SMS lists.

We prefer the @PostscriptIO pop up for this to collect emails and phone numbers.
#2: Make Sure You're Doing SMS Marketing

I'm shocked at how many brands aren't doing SMS yet b/c SMS open rates are 90%+ and you can make 20% of your revenue from SMS marketing.

Make sure you start SMS right away if you're not already doing it.

Pro Conversion Rate Optimization Tip (#CRO) for @Shopify Store Owners

Make sure you pay attention to where you experience a drop off (or improvement) after you make changes to your site, in order to improve conversion rates.

Here's how... 🧵
Let's say you raise your price or stop offering FREE SHIPPING in your banner.

Whatever it is, you'll want to pay attention to this section in your Analytics tab in @Shopify. 👇
Let's assume conversion rates go down.

Are fewer people adding products to their cart, are fewer reaching checkout, or are fewer completing their checkout?

For the last 3 weeks, I didn't have any days off and usually got back home around midnight. The reason – a new #startup. It's tough, but it's fulfilling.

What is it like starting a fundraise when the market crashes and what mistakes I've made – read in a thread:
Being YC-alum with industry insights and a team behind me, I hugely underestimated how difficult it will be. It seems that everyone around raises money easily, others may tell you how easy it will be, but, in reality, it's never easy, man.
I had too much confidence in my connections and their power. What each friend can make, 3 intros? Should be enough to close a small round! In reality, it's 0.2, and more ghosting than intros.

(Appreciate all those who really tried to help 🙌 I value it more than ever)

First, I made sure the new vendor had its own collection page.

It's much cleaner to have a URL that reads:


than to have:


This also allows you to set a title and description.
I created an article that introduces the vendor: "We now sell vendor-name products!".

Introduce that vendor and why they're great. Link to the vendor page that was just created. List each product, write a short description, and link to the product pages individually.

Internal Search is a powerful tool for both users and #SEO professionals, especially for large #ecommerce sites.

(P.S. It is also one of our favorite keyword data sources)

Unleash the Power of Internal Site Search for Better UX & Conversions with these 5 Tips🧵
✔️Tip 1: Check for Content Topics that users are searching for (a lot) but you don’t have a specific Landing Page for. This can improve UX and your chances to rank with that page on Google Search.
Bonus: Blend your internal searches with your search console data to find if there are quality and high-volume searches that have little to no organic clicks.

#AfricaTech #Reflections: Where we might go from here?
2021 gave us many reasons to celebrate. More startups. More money. More deals. More global and local investors. Feels like the stage is set. But is it? And even if yes, what can we expect?
Few pre-weekend thoughts - long 🧵👇
1/ Reading this great piece from @fcollective – was a good reminder of value creation and the fact it is measured over time and not just on the first fundraising rounds.
2/ A giant drop in public markets tech multiples across the board + eye-watering pre-seed & seed valuations – are a reason to stop & think.
Is this a sustainable track and the best way to embark in '22 onwards?
Or are there frameworks to help #AfricaTech grow healthier & better?
