Kit is being hailed as an experienced virtual AI marketing assistant for Ecommerce Stores. Kit can drive sales to your shop by creating targeted Facebook Ads, send thank you emails to customers, run email campaigns, post to your social media fans, and much more. Kit can save you a great deal of time in your marketing efforts and for a fair cost too. The basic plan is only $10 a month and Kit Pro is $25 per month. With Kit Pro, you can have more access to premium apps, marketing templates and more.
Installation of Kit is rather easy and a majority of communications with the AI Assistant can be done via text or messenger. Once Kit was installed on our store, Kit created a dynamic retargeting ad to target customers who had been to the shop but not yet made a purchase. We wanted to see, from start to finish, whether Kit integrated properly with the teelaunch app. Shortly after, we had a sale. The sale went through Shopify just fine and went through our batching process with no issues at all. With that said, we can confidently state that the Kit app is compatible with the teelaunch app.
Facebook Messenger Channel
The Facebook Messenger Sales Channel is by default available in your Shopify store. It is very easy to get started with it and will only take you activating the channel and linking your Facebook page with it. Once you link your accounts, the Facebook Messenger Sales Channel is capable of a lot of nice features. These features include, sending notifications to customers about shipping and tracking of their orders, allowing customers to directly speak with you about products, and allowing customers to shop directly from the Messenger box.
Once we had the sales channel activated, we decided to try out a test order. We went through the process as any normal customer would and found a product and clicked “purchase”. Once this happens, a new page opens to your website with that product in the cart and ready to buy. The customer only needs to add their shipping and payment details at that point. Once the purchase was made, the order went smoothly through our batching process. The Facebook Messenger Channel and the teelaunch app are completely compatible. This channel is a great way to bring in more sales and increase more trust in your brand. Did we mention it is free too? Can’t beat that!
Wanelo Sales Channel
Wanelo is one of the most trafficked marketplaces on the internet, allowing its users to create boards of products they want as well as purchase products direct in their marketplace.
The Wanelo Sales Channel is located in your “sales channels” sidebar in the Shopify backend. Activation of this channel is pretty easy, all you have to do is create an account with Wanelo and have your application approved to sell on their marketplace. Once your account is approved, your products will sync to your Wanelo store automatically so you don’t have to do any manual inputting.
When you make a sale, it is synced right into your Shopify store. The Wanelo sales channel is free to use, but they do take 15% commission of your sales made through their marketplace. We created a test order on our shop to see how the process worked. Once the order was placed via our Wanelo page, the order was visible right away in our Shopify orders. Wanelo orders even have a special note in the order stating it was from Wanelo so you can keep track of that. The order went through our batching process with no issues and we can say that it is 100% compatible with the teelaunch app.
Product Upsell by Bold:
As most marketers know, a good upsell is the key to pulling out that additional revenue that is all too frequently left on the table. Product Upsell by Bold allows you to create offers for your customers that upsells them when they are making a purchase in your store.
Bold apps can be a little more labor intensive to set up than some other apps. Beyond installing the app, there isn't too much code modification. The code that needs to be added, though, is a bit tricky to figure where it goes. This app can make use of AJAX, so the user will need to figure out if their store uses it. If so, a small snippet needs to be added to the success function of the AJAX 'add to cart'. The app developers cannot tell you exactly where this can be found per theme but they do offer helpful hints and examples.*If the Shopify store does not utilize AJAX, no further setup is needed after installing.
Once the app is installed, you need to create an offer. There are a lot of ways to customize your offer. For the purpose of this test we created an offer that displayed after the customer clicked the “checkout” button and chose a product that would work well as an upsell to all of our products. You can customize your offers further by creating triggers for price ranges, adding additional products, etc. The cost of Product Upsell ranges from $9.99-$59.99 per month depending on which plan you select.
To test this app, we created a test order through the front end of the shop. Once we clicked “checkout” we were prompted with a popup with the exact specifications of our offer. For testing purposes, we also added the upsell product to our order too. Once the order was placed, the order went through batching with no issues and we can say the Product Upsell by Bold is compatible with the teelaunch app.
The Motivator by Bold
The Motivator by Bold is a classic mouse meets cheese app. It is incentive based, creating a goal for your customer to meet in order to get their offer. It is like a game, and we want our customers to play. Your offer can be anything from a free gift to free shipping to a discount. That is up to you.
This app requires fairly significant template modifications, all of which are detailed by the app developers. Although it takes some time, the directions are straight forward and fairly simple to follow. Once the app is installed, you have to create a goal. Creating a goal is pretty straight forward, you need to set a cart total (like $100.00) for customers to reach to get the offer, you need to make a pitch (free shipping on orders of $100+) and you need to create a message for when your customers meet that goal. It is important to note that the Motivator does NOT modify cart totals, so if you are providing free shipping or discounts, you should be adding a coupon code to your ending message. If you do not do this, there is no other way for customers to reap the benefit of the goal. The Motivator app ranges from $4.99-$9.99 per month, depending on which plan you choose.
Because of the nature of this app, we felt it was unnecessary to create a test order. This app will be compatible by default as it does not modify cart totals or create any issues in the ordering or batching process. We can say that the Motivator App by Bold is compatible with the teelaunch app.
