2016 - Website builder Weebly adds marketing emails to challenge Shopify
Website building service for small businesses Weebly launched Promote, a platform for building marketing emails. Email marketing is the number two concern for small businesses behind their website,” CEO David Rusenko said. However, more than half of Weebly users aren’t taking advantage of existing email marketing tools, because “it’s confusing and hard for them. So Promote allows them to build those emails using the same drag-and-drop tools they use to build their websites. Weebly Promote is currently limited to users of the existing Weebly platform, but the plan is to make it available to everyone soon. Pricing starts at $8 a month.
2015 - Shopify launched add-on apps for its iPad POS to keep up with Weebly
Shopify is expanding the capabilities of its iOS point-of-sale system with the launch of nearly a half-dozen apps for the platform, allowing merchants to add custom features to their point-of-sale solutions without having to upgrade to a more expensive POS platform. The apps include those that will help merchants run promotions, upsell to customers, turn their Wi-Fi into a marketing tool, offer wholesale discounts to select customers, plus print invoices, labels, receipts and more. The current lineup available today includes loyalty card app Appcard, Ultimate Sales Manager, Turnstyle (the Wi-Fi app), Supple Wholesale and Order Printer. The introduction of POS apps is notable because it allows merchants to customize their POS experience in a much more affordable way than was previously possible, and because it can help brick-and-mortar merchants tap into Shopify’s online offerings. Meanwhile, for developers, the launch is meaningful because it introduces a new platform to build for – and there are shops out there that solely work on building Shopify apps.
