100X ROI with NEW BigCommerce Tool

A few years ago we started a little conversion optimization company called Conversion Voodoo. As we helped our clients grow, we grew up, too, landing a spot as one of the leading CRO companies in the business. It was our innovation in testing that helped our clients, and ourselves, rise to the top.

During our rise to the top we’ve created many tools to help explode the profits of our clients, but we’ve always kept our software under lock and key. Today, we’ve changed that. We’ve created an item promotion tool specifically for BigCommerce stores that we’ve proven to increase sales. (We’ll be adding other platforms in the future.)


100X ROI BigCommerce Tool?!?

Ok. 100X ROI. Really? I’ll explain.

Whenever we come up with a new CRO idea, we always, ALWAYS put it to the test. To do this we created a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) of our promotion tool and teamed up with a several BigCommerce stores who were willing to try it (and it paid off!). As of writing this post, the test stores have generated an average of $4,100 in profits each month during testing.

One of our testers even generated an additional $32,720 in a 30 day period of using our tool. The funny thing is that this client originally came to us for conversion rate optimization but we told them they were too small. Instead we convinced them to try this instead. Talk about an accidental MASSIVE success!

We would’ve been happy with $3,272 but somehow it exploded 10x more than our expectations!




We wouldn’t have believed it if someone had told us, but the stats weren’t lying.

We were blown away. Sure, we were used to getting results with our tests, but this was something we could put in the hands of store owners so they could increase their profits without our help.

Retention Marketing And Your Online Business – A Match Made In Heaven

Retention Marketing And Your Online Business - A Match Made In Heaven

Keeping the customers you have today has never been more important for your online business.

While finding new customers and growing that side of your business is terrific, keeping your current customers and increasing their loyalty is cheaper for our business in the long run.

We’re going to look at retention marketing and your online business. They are a match made in heaven, and we’re going to explain why.

First, let’s look at some statistics on the importance of retention marketing.

The Value of Retention Marketing

If you’re one of the many businesses not currently working to retain your existing clients, we’re going to provide you a few reasons why it’s time to refresh your marketing strategy.

Here’s a few reasons why retaining current customers is “better” for your business than acquiring new ones.

  1. A 2% increase in customer retention has the same effect as decreasing costs by 10%.
  2. Acquiring new customers can cost nearly five times as much as making your current customers happy.
  3. About 80% of your profits will come from just 20% of your existing, loyal customers.
  4. If you reduce your customer defection or churn rate by 5%, you’ll increase your company’s profitability 25-125%!
  5. Nearly 70% of your customers will leave your company because they don’t think you really care or because you provided poor customer service.
  6. Companies that prioritize customer service generate 60% more in profits than their competition.
  7. When customers are happy, they will tell nine of their friends about it. On the flip side, when customers are unhappy, they’ll tell 22 of their friends.

Now that we’ve solidly convinced you of the importance of retention marketing and your online business, let’s look at some tactics that work. Continue reading “Retention Marketing And Your Online Business – A Match Made In Heaven”

Step 4: Paste the Snake Charmer code

The following code will need to be pasted into the “Product.html” page, right before the closing </body> tag:

<!--- Track Viewed Product for SnakeCharmer --->
<script>window.SC.pluginBind('SCBCMain.productViewed', [%%GLOBAL_ProductId%%]);</script>


Step 5: Paste code into the “SideCartItem.html” file

This file is located within the “Snippets” folder. You will need to expand this folder before seeing the “SideCartItem.html” file. Select the “Edit” button like you did for the product page and paste in the following code:

<li data-name="SCBCCartItem" data-prodid="%%GLOBAL_ProductId%%" data-prodqty="%%GLOBAL_ProductQuantity%%" data-prodprice="%%GLOBAL_ProductPrice%%"> </li>


Step 6: Paste code into the “Header.html” file

This file is located within the “Panels” folder. Expand this folder and find the “Header.html” file, and choose “Edit”. Paste in the following code at the end of the file:

<div style="display:none;" id="SCBCCart">%%Panel.SideCartContents%%</div>
