Let SiteLINK Help Grow Your Pinterest Presence

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Posted by: Molly Griffin, Marketing Associate

As previously mentioned a recent Dydacomp blog,  Pinterest is the hottest social networking site on the web right now. The site has already expanded faster than Facebook or Groupon did when they first started. Pinterest is a new social media site that allows a person to pin items of interest to their PinBoard  and share them with their Facebook friends and other social followers.

It is very beneficial for  eCommerce merchants who can use it to accelerate sale of products through existing customers and prospects. When a visitor to your site pins a picture of a particular product from your site on their PinBoard it gets shared with their followers which introduces your offering to their network . According to a recent article from Shareaholic , Pinterest currently drives more referral traffic than YouTube, Google+ and LinkedIn combined.

How can a SiteLINK user capitalize on Pinterest?  Easy.

SiteLINK 7 has a powerful “Add This” capability that enables your store to easily add a “Pin It” button to your SiteLINK pages so that customers can easily add one of your products to their PinBoard. This will ensure that your site can facilitate “Pin Its” at the product level and help increase brand awareness for your offers.

To learn how to easily add “Pin It” feature to your SiteLINK V7 store using the “Add This” function, visit here.

Check out this SiteLINK example of how easy sharing on Pinterest can be:

Reminder for businesses: to avoid any copy right issues, make sure the images you pin are either owned by you, or you have permission to use them in a commercial manner.  This might limit your ability to add pins, but it is better to be on the safe side.

Enhance Your M.O.M. Knowledge at Dydacomp’s April Training

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Posted by: Christine Amodio, Dydacomp Technical Writer and Trainercamodio2 Enhance Your M.O.M. Knowledge at Dydacomp’s April Training

Dydacomp’s Multichannel Order Manager and SiteLINK eCommerce solutions are jam packed with features to help facilitate order management, inventory management, order processing and more for multichannel merchants. However, many times M.O.M. and SiteLINK users do not utilize M.O.M.’s complete feature set. One great opportunity to receive hands on training on M.O.M. and SiteLINK functionality is at the Dydacomp training seminars.

All are invited to join the next M.O.M. & SiteLINK training seminars being held at Dydacomp  on April 25-27, 2012. The three-day training sessions are run by M.O.M. and SiteLINK experts who know the ins and outs. These experts will provide M.O.M. users tips that enable you to capitalize on your M.O.M. investment, learn more about M.O.M. Version 8 newest enhancements, and master your eCommerce channel with SiteLINK. These training seminars have proven to be beneficial for our clients, especially those who only recently started using M.O.M.. Multichannel Order Manager and SiteLINK eCommerce clients who attended training have seen a significant decrease in the number of basic support tickets (how to questions) they opened and found they contacted Support only when they had more complex questions.

100% of the clients attending the most recent training agreed that they would recommend Dydacomp’s training to any client looking to gain a more comprehensive understanding of M.O.M. and SiteLINK eCommerce. The training offers real insight into the inner workings of  Multichannel Order Manager’s features and how to use them to benefit your small business.

Recent training attendee, Evie Redling from Trappistine Creamy Carmels, was able to gain a better understanding of M.O.M. for her small business out in Dubuque, Iowa. “We were able to learn about ACVM  and how it would make my life a lot easier! If I would have taken this training before our busy time last year I would have saved myself a lot of stress and extra steps.” Trappistine Creamy Caramels  is a small business run by a group of Cistercian Nuns who specialize in caramels (chocolate coated ones too), caramel sauces, Irish mints, Swiss mints and hazelnut meltaways.

Another training attendee Phyllis LeBlanc, from Harbor Sweets, stated, “The most beneficial aspect of this training was being able to develop a working knowledge of the software.” Harbor Sweets is a gourmet chocolate company Salem, Massachusetts. Take a look at their SiteLINK eCommerce store at www.harborsweets.com. Phyllis also added “Overall the training was a worthwhile investment of time.”

If you wish to increase your understanding and knowledge of Multichannel Order Manager and SiteLINK eCommerce, do not miss the opportunity to attend our training session on April 25-27, 2012.

To register, fill out the registration form here or call Dydacomp sales at (800) 858 3666. We look forward to seeing you there!

Don’t Forget to Backup SiteLINK too!

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Posted by: Daniel Cirasuolo,  SiteLINK eCommerce Support Specialist

The Dydacomp team is always reminding customers about the importance of backing up your Multichannel Order Manager system and hopefully customers have taken our advice to back up their M.O.M on a daily basis. Backing up your M.O.M. system is a crucial step to help ensure the integrity of your data, but many people don’t realize the importance of backing up your web design pages for your SiteLINK eCommerce store. This back up helps ensure that if you make changes to the design of your web store, you will always have a copy of the original to restore if issues arise.

The SiteLINK eCommerce team here at Dydacomp have received a number of calls because clients have forgotten to save their website (.asp) pages before making adjustments and lost custom work and other designs. Failure to back up your SiteLINK eCommerce pages can result in the loss of your custom work that could hurt the functionally of your website. It is important for SiteLINK clients to save their .asp pages before making any changes to your SiteLINK store to ensure you have a back up copy to restore if you accidently change specifics of your site.

I recommend that clients make a copy of any  SiteLINK eCommerce .ASP page they are going to be editing.  Copy and paste the .ASP file to an area on your computer that you will be able to access if needed.  I usually recommend to SiteLINK clients that they should create a new folder called BACKUP within their FTP site, and copy and paste any .ASP files they make changes to. This will help prevent the loss of your web design in the future.

Posted By: Al Pascale, Dydacomp eCommerce Managerapascale Let M.O.M. Improve Your SiteLINK Ecommerce Store Today

Two key factors needed to run a successful eCommerce store are the ability to keep accurate inventory counts and the ability to fulfill/process orders in as close to real-time as possible. Multichannel Order Manager offers your business the ability to automatically download orders, while keeping inventory management accurate by automatically synchronizing online inventory in a batch.

The lack of synchronization can cause issues that lead to customer dissatisfaction and a loss of sales. Let us help you get as close to a real-time order download/inventory synchronization as possible to improve the quality of your online store.

To enable the Automatic Order Download and Inventory Synchronization:

The average SiteLINK store experienced a strong 12% increase in their average number of orders per day over March 2010 and a 27% increase compared to February 2011.  The notable increase in traffic and orders contributed to the 12% growth in revenue per day over March 2010 experienced by the average SiteLINK eCommerce store.

eCommerce on the Rise

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Posted By: Al Pascale, Manager of eCommerce Services apascale eCommerce on the Rise

Good news for eCommerce merchants as  online spending grew for the fifth consecutive month this March. According to a recent article from Internet Retailer, online spending in March increased 16.1% over the same time last year. This rise in spending follows the 13.2% increase in online spending compared to February of 2010. The rising gas prices may be one reason shoppers are choosing to shop online rather than to drive retail locations.

SiteLINK eCommerce customers have also experienced this double-digit increase in online spending. The average SiteLINK store experienced a strong 12% increase in average number of orders per day compared to March 2010, which lead to the fifth month of consecutive growth in online revenue. The notable increase in traffic and orders contributed to an impressive 12% increase in revenue per day over March 2010.

Whatever  the reason for the growth one thing is clear, the online market is a growing marketplace and with the right tools eCommerce merchants can benefit. SiteLINK’s eCommerce offers SEO features, selling tools, integrated cross channel customer management along with social media sharing which help to increase stores online visibility. This visibility has helped to drive traffic to online stores and increase conversion rates to produce that exciting 12% growth.

Lets hope April follows this steady growth and produces  six consecutive months of growth. Has your eCommerce store experienced similar growth? If so we would love to hear about what efforts have helped you seal the sales and grow your business!
