Drive Traffic with Pix
For a long time, the best way to discover new wine was to visit wineries and have tastings. Now, post-pandemic, wine lovers are online, but how do they find new wines? Pix is a wine discovery platform that helps shoppers discover wines. When they find your wine, they click through and buy from your website. This traffic will drive sales, which is essential for your online success.
Join us next Tuesday for our webinar with Pix, presented by Joe Fattorini, known around the world as "Obi Wine Kenobi", the expert presenter on The Wine Show.

Recovering Lost Sales: The Land, Sea & Air Approach
Let's face it... Cart abandonment is not only here to stay, but it's getting worse. And with the holidays rapidly approaching, most retailers are about to see a surge in not only website traffic but abandoned purchases too. While abandoned cart emails can almost always help you recover a significant portion of those lost shoppers, these campaigns are still only one small piece of the very large, very profitable "Shopper Recovery" puzzle.
