Nugget Friday (3/23/18)
Here's the deal, if you signup for our newsletter you'll get a weekly dose of "Nugget Friday" - it's our way of sharing VALUE right before the weekend. If you have missed prior ones we have released in the past be sure to checkout our blog and catchup on all the gold nuggets you have missed!
Before you kick this weekend off in the biggest way, here are gold nuggets you need to know!
What we're pondering —
35% of Amazon.com’s revenue is generated by its recommendation engine - “Frequently Bought Together” and “Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought this” (source)
App we're enjoying —
We'll cheat and give you two nuggets here:
#1: With the click of a button, YASIV searches Amazon and builds an awesome web of how a search term or ASIN relates to all the other items frequently purchased with that product. It displays not just what other customers bought with that product, but what other customers bought from those resulting items as well. And it is a great opportunity for sellers to discover bundling/kitting ideas for their products. Check out this video to see it in action, or hit this link to try it out for FREE.
#2: We're indulging with our frequently bought together obsession, (re: massive nugget last week) by adding that SAME Amazon recommendation engine functionality to our Shopify store using the Bold Brain app.
Podcast we're listening to—

What we're hearing —
