For the last 6 months, the ID90 Travel team has been focused on building a new app. The primary driver for this product was the shift in traffic and noticeable downfalls of our current app. After deliberating what technologies to use (Ionic, Cordova & Angular), we began building. After 3 months, we decided we had an MVP we could elicit feedback from real life customers. So we decided to run a series of listening labs.
As you may know by now, I run my family’s online business on Shopify’s platform. We made the switch from SquareSpace after a year because we wanted more tools to automate our marketing strategy. We chose Shopify because it has an ecosystem of third-party Shopify apps that help you run your online business. From automating marketing programs to optimizing your online store’s performance, Shopify has you covered.
When we made the switch, we found ourselves asking the following question. Which Shopify apps could we use to get the most out of our store without breaking the bank? This is the question I seek to answer.
I was 22 years old when I graduated from college. During my college years, I read a ton of dense philosophical text and solved complex economic problems. This experience, I believe, trained me to think differently than my peers. My first job out of college was a healthcare IT company. During the day I helped facilitate operations for our implementations team. At night I learned how to code and use marketing tools. After a few months, I launched my family’s online business. This was the first time I truly owned a product. Fast forward a few years, we’re now serving customers around the world, automating marketing interactions, directly interacting with customers and growing our reach. Little did I know, I was cultivating my product management skills.
