Keir Whitaker has always loved design and early last year become a Design Advocate at Shopify. I had the pleasure to connect with Keir via email and he was kind enough to answer some questions I had for him on what it means to be a Design Advocate at Shopify, the current trends in graphic design and what store owners should focus on when thinking about the design of their store.
Once a month we will be publishing a case study on how we helped a customer address certain challenges. Our first case study features LCD 4 U, a Dutch based online store that sells a wide range of home appliances and other electronics. The case study covers how Yotpo helped LCD 4 U create trust among site visitors which helped the site increase sales by 14%.
I am pleased to announce that we have just released one of our most asked for features, Google Rich Snippet support for Yotpo reviews.
Rich snippets are extra pieces of information which are shown within Google search results to provide more information to the person running the search. Below are two examples of rich snippets being shown in search results.
This past Tuesday we held our first Twitter Q&A which was a lot of fun. Thank you to everyone that took part and submitted questions. For those of you who haven’t heard of a Twitter Q&A, the idea is that every Tuesday anyone can tweet a question and include the hashtag #askyotpo and we will do our best to answer the question and consider it for a blog post the following Thursday.
For this post I have selected one question that I think is very relevant to all of us and decided to go into some depth. Please feel free to provide your own answers in the comments section below. The more answers we have the better it is for everyone.
This coming Tuesday (7th May) Yotpo will be hosting it’s first weekly Twitter Q&A. Every Tuesday from next week we ask our fans on Twitter to post any question they have on Yotpo, eCommerce, social commerce or really anything else they would like to ask us. We will then take our favorites and create a blog post with both the questions and answers. Sounds like fun right:)
If you are not yet following us on Twitter then click the follow button below and get your questions ready for Tuesday.
