What its like to be a Canadian on American Thanksgiving

Is manual data entry haunting your dreams this Halloween?

Is manual data entry haunting your dreams this Halloween?

Thursday, October 27, 2016Lauren Macdonald One of the best things about Halloween (aside from the candy, of course) is the thrill of being spooked. Haunted houses, horror movies, scary clowns roaming the neighbourhood… it’s all part of the fun.

But when it comes to your eCommerce business, having peace-of-mind and a sense of security is a lot better than having fear. Fear that you can’t keep up with the volume of orders you’re receiving. Fear that mistakes made from manual data entry will result in costly errors. Fear that your customers will be unhappy with the slow speed in which they receive their shipments… the list goes on.

Keep an eye out for these Google updates if you're an eCommerce retailer!

Keep an eye out for these Google updates if you're an eCommerce retailer!

Tuesday, September 13, 2016Lauren Macdonald Hey e-retailers! It’s no secret that Google likes to update its search algorithm and advertising requirements from time to time in order to improve user experience. Last year, they began boosting the rank of mobile-friendly websites, and back in 2014 they boosted the ranking of sites with encryption as well. The intention is to not only direct people to more informative results, but also to results that are user-friendly and easy to navigate.

If you’re selling online and want to keep traffic flowing to your website from Google’s search engine results, it’s a good idea to stay on top of Google’s updates so that your search ranking is boosted rather than lowered.

To help you out, we’ve outlined two new updates that you should be aware of: Read More
