Shopitag press and media kit

Last update: 6 March 2019

For small businesses running an e-commerce shop can seem tedious, time-consuming and from a profit point of view, pretty dramatic. Specifically when the small business owner has a physical shop that needs to pay the bills. With Shopitag Post A Shop, we created an e-commerce platform for people who have no time for an e-commerce platform. Contradictory? Read on to understand!

PS. For enterprises, we have a specific proposition named Shopitag Plus.

The short bite

Shopitag is helping small business owners to deal with e-commerce. The founders of Shopitag talked with a lot of these small business owners, and they found out that the e-commerce platform on itself is not the problem. The problem is time. The problem is operationally running a webshop. Certainly when in a physical shop people need to be served, not much time is left to run a succesful webshop. So 9 out of 10 these small businesses either don't start with e-commerce, or just stop after a while.

Shopitag helps by reducing the time to run a webshop AND at the same time cuts the time it takes to create visibility on social channels. This combination is the Unique Selling Proposition). In fact, businesses don't need an own webshop, as the Shopitag technology allows to generate a webshop based on the images a customer (business owner) takes using the Shopitag App.

Using the Shopitag App (available in the App store and Play store) require no prior skills, allows full customization and a business can link its Facebook page in 1 simple step.

Since the introduction of advanced plans, companies can opt for the "Shopitag Plus". These plans are characterized with bold features like dynamic pop-up shops, real-time personalization, conversational commerce and API connectivity. The plans were introduced as an answer to the request for more bespoke scenarios, where customer intimacy and generation of new revenues are priorities for the business clients.

The medium bite

For those businesses that do have time to run a webshop, Shopitag helps them too by making the most out of the number one channel on mobile: it supports Facebook ads, Facebook pages, and Facebook Messenger chat bots. For businesses that are not happy with the performance of their ads, Shopitag is the ideal solution to link these ads to a focused landing page. And for chat bot enthusiasts: the tight integration with Facebook Messenger gives you a seamless solution to start monetizing chatbots.

User comfort works on both ends: Shopitag is designed to guarantee a quick and easy set-up for the merchant, and provide a seamless shopping experience for the customer. It piggybacks on technologies that are already widely known, such as Facebook. Incidentally, Facebook is also home to 2 billion users, so Shopitag customers don't need to invest in new channels or make an additional effort to divert Internet traffic: the audiences they seek are already there.

The longer bite

Steep learning curves, high investment and novelty areas can be scary to entrepreneurs, certainly if IT and e-commerce are not their forte. That's why Shopitag offers a three-pronged solution to these issues: it is incredibly easy to set up and use, it offers great value at a low risk, and it is built to work in tandem with technologies people already know.

Through a simple 3-step procedure in the Shopitag App, business owners can create a Facebook post and at the same time generate a webshop (pop-up shop) with a streamlined, clear offering. Shopitag also lets users create multiple posts in their social feed, generating awareness and visibility without extra effort.

Shopitag is not an exclusive solution to end all other web shops. On the contrary, it can work together with an existing web shop infrastructure to give businesses some room for experimentation or conduct A/B-testing.

Also, its ease of use is in no way contradictory to the more adventurous spirit some businesses have about e.g. chat bot technology or API fiddling. Shopitag's API allows developers the necessary freedom to repurpose it to their own needs — or the needs of their own customers. For instance, marketing agencies, banks or telecom players with business offers can make Shopitag part of their offer to the SME and start-up segment.

At the end of the day, Shopitag is all about creating more visibility and awareness for the small business that is active on social media. An increased number of eyeballs leads to more visitors on the (dynamic) webshops and ultimately increases top-line revenue. Having inflow of new visitors and conversion hand in hand, creates a powerful relationship. No longer will desperate entrepreneurs have to throw up their hands in frustration and ask "what the shop?".
