How we got 200 subscribers on YouTube

200 subscribers on e-commerce success by Ad360 YouTube channel

We’re proud to announce today that our YouTube channel, ‘Ecommerce Success by Ad360’ just hit 200 subscribers!

Thank you very much to all our subscribers and the persons who support the channel growth by regularly liking and commenting under the videos!

Sure, 200 subscribers is not a lot. By most standards, we’re still a very small YouTube channel. But considering we had 0 subscribers at the beginning of the year, it’s a great progress!

What’s more interesting is that the growth pace is accelerating for the YouTube channel: whereas it took us 4 months to get from 0 to 100 subscribers, it only took 2 months to get to 200.

Whereas we used to get around 1 new subscriber a day on average, we’re now getting 2 or 3 subscribers quite frequently.

This means that the growth rate tends to accelerate the more followers you have. This means that consistency and perseverance are key factors to grow on YouTube (at least for small channels like ours talking about niche topics like how to improve online sales for your e-commerce website on Shopify or WooCommerce).

We will regularly keep you informed of our progress, and share our learnings along the way, hoping that you get valuable lessons from it! If you haven’t already, we strongly recommend you start producing video content for your brand. This is key to attract new traffic in 2022, as Google will continue favoring video content more and more in the future.

If you haven’t already, we’d be delighted if you joined us on this journey by liking the video and subscribing to our channel.

We publish several videos a week on E-Commerce growth, Marketing, Advertising and Website design to help online business owners be more successful!

3 reasons why Google Reviews matter a lot!

5-stars review image

Google Reviews are an essential way to get more visibility online. These are the reviews left by people on your Google My Business profile, with a rating out of 5 stars, and a comment. Users can add photos too to their reviews (and you should encourage them to do so if you’re selling products!).

These reviews are super important for many reasons!

First of all, they show other people that your business is well respected and liked!

Secondly, more and more people are using these reviews to get more insights about a company and their products & services before making a purchase decision.

Thirdly, they are increasingly taken into account by Google’s search algorithms to determine your rank on Search Engine Response Pages (SERP).

These reviews appear on the right hand side of the search results when users type your business name, or find you from a keyword if you’re sufficiently highly ranked. They are also prominently featured on Google Maps, which can be a great channel to acquire new customers!

That’s why you should definitely ask your customers to leave reviews whenever possible!

This is what we do at Ad360, and we’re super proud and thankful to our customers that they left us our 10th 5-star reviews this week.

Public Release of Ad360 App for Shopify

Ad360 App for Shopify - found in the Shopify App Store

App Launch in the Shopify App Store

Ad360 announces today the public release of Ad360 App for Shopify.

Ad360 is proud to be a Shopify Partner and to take part in the thriving Shopify ecosystem by releasing its app in the Shopify App Store.

Today, any Shopify user can install the Ad360 App for Shopify and grow their business with the easiest way to manage all promotional activities in one place. 

On a mission to make e-commerce growth easier

Ad360 App for Shopify helps e-commerce businesses of all sizes be more productive, grow efficiently and easily, with minimal technical knowledge and no middlemen.

Ad360’s mission is to make millions of merchants happy and successful. We take care of all your promotional activities, allowing you to focus on your passion & core business.

Many business owners have serious marketing issues

According to merchants, the number one difficulty they face is the complexity of online advertising and the heavy investments required to get results. Newly launched business owners frequently cite lack of time, resources, and marketing knowledge as the primary causes for the lack of website visitors and buyers.

That’s a severe problem, evidenced by a shockingly high failure rate:
more than 90% of e-commerce startups have to shut down in their first six months of existence, according to a 2019 MarketingSignals study. The two most frequent reasons are “Poor online marketing” and “Lack of online visibility.”

Unfortunately, advertising methods which are both affordable and very effective, such as retargeting, are often unknown or deemed too complex to implement by small businesses. Retargeting allows showing ads to specific users interested in a merchant’s website and products. This advertising technique, well known by major brands and professional marketers, is not employed by most small businesses. That’s a significant missed opportunity, as it can reduce advertising costs while increasing sales by more than 50%. 


Providing a solution for businesses of all sizes

Ad360 aims to change this fact and make it easier than ever for any business, regardless of its size, to get started with Retargeting and grow their business.

In addition, for the first time, Shopify merchants can manage through Ad360’s centralized dashboard all their advertising channels and platforms, including search engines, social media, and millions of independent websites and mobile apps.

Ad360 makes it simple to get started with advertising by instantly generating creative banners in multiple formats and sizes, automatically including Shopify’s product collections data. 

These features, and many more, allow Shopify store owners to manage all their promotional activities under one roof, directly from Ad360 App for Shopify. They can save time while Ad360’s machine learning makes automatic decisions, such as where and when to spend their advertising budget to maximize sales.

Try for yourself with a Free Trial and Free Audit

Ad360 welcomes all new users with a 14-day Free Trial. This way, you can try by yourself the power of retargeting and other Ad360 App for Shopify features.

Frank’s story pt2: Making Ads Work

store traffic

This article continues Frank’s story, after the Part 1 in which Frank struggled to bring traffic to his new Shopify store.

Frank had accomplished a vital company goal during the pandemic – he moved his entire inventory online to Shopify, competing with all major retailers on the web. He also knew only losers and chumps rested on their laurels. Sure, the basics were out of the way, but Frank felt like a fish trapped in the social media “fishbowl” – an echo chamber he couldn’t market his way out of.

Unsure of where to start, Frank bought ad space on Google and Facebook. While he wasn’t experienced with these platforms, Frank invested thousands into marketing on social media because “that’s how many people do it now.” Frank is an expert on his store’s products, not marketing. He quickly found out the devil is in the details of online ad targeting – you need data analytics to uncover sales patterns and trends invisible to the naked eye. Frank needed to figure out how this all worked for his Shopify store… and quickly!

The social media advertising… it kind of worked. But Frank found himself as one of the 62% of business owners whose ads completely miss the mark. His social network was only seeing about 16% of the ads he put out… and it was draining his company funds.

If Frank didn’t find new horizons and more effective ways to promote his Shopify storefront online, he’d be insolvent in 2 months. Every time he looked at his online visibility and marketing versus the revenue brought from these efforts… the guy needed a scotch.  

On a final hurrah, Frank installed the Ad360 App for Shopify, which quickly introduced ad retargeting to Frank: something that went beyond social mediaHe knew he was onto something big when a few recent customers said they had found out about his Shopify store while surfing across the web.

One customer even said they heard about Frank’s Shopify store while reading a story on CNN international. “HOW?!” Frank exclaimed while his eyes lit up with excitement…

The ad technology had saved the customer’s interest in his store, and Frank’s product automatically popped up as an ad while the buyer scrolled through the news! The magnitude of that shift in visibility made Frank’s unique daily visitor go up and his sales significantly increased, without spending more ad budget. Really. We know it’s challenging and can be discouraging. Still, Frank’s story is not unique – and it changed his life and the life of his family for the better, forever.

Do you really feel you have researched and explored every vector of your Shopify store online promotions? Many Shopify owners need just a little push – and a little more visibility across the web – to truly flourish.

Find out how Ad360 takes local Shopify stores to success through next-gen ad retargeting. When customers start seeing your ads across more than just social media, you’ll want to keep driving ahead and never look back 😊
