Tony Robbins

It’s hard not to get on board with Tony Robbins and his philosophy of adding the most value to the human race that you possibly can. Being a company centered on growth we’re long time fans and clients of Tony, so needless to say we were stoked to help his ecommerce channel grow.

The Problem:

The Tony Robbins site is massive stable of content between all of his different experience offerings, coaching, and blogs which is built on WordPress. But there is also a commerce component which is hosted on a separate Shopify Plus site.

Initially, the experience transition between the content site and the ecommerce site was inadequate with limited tracking. That meant that is was impossible for them to tell what parts of the content site were working to drive sales and what parts weren’t effective. There was not enough visibility to effectively grow their ecommerce store.

Why Metacake?

At Metacake, we are data driven and multidisciplinary. We are have some of the top experience in the world in WordPress (which hosts Tony Robbins content site) and Shopify Plus (which hosts his online store), and we know these platforms like the back of our hands. Better yet, we know how to GROW brands on these platforms. We believe in growing brands that matter and in doing so based off of analytics, not instinct (although we have a good sense about that too).

What We Did:

In order to fully integrate content and commerce, we used a unique method of embedding Shopify Plus buy buttons within content on the content site. Now when you add something to cart on Tony Robbins, you are linked directly to the Shopify cart along with all the tracking data necessary to attribute marketing campaigns.

We also integrated the analytics in such a way that you could track the marketing activities across both platforms.

Previously, any buy buttons hosted on the content site were popping up a checkout modal, which also prevented the Tony Robbins team from doing any cross promotions between his different products.

This was particularly important when it came to Tony Robbins event pages. Tony Robbins’ event pages attract a TON of traffic. Millions of people are funneled to these event pages and were completely unaware that there was a full online store with products that might interest them. Instead there was just a popup modal to checkout for the event for which they wanted to register. They were also was missing out on a huge opportunity to sell additional products to these visitors.

Now instead, users are dropped into the store checkout with the product they selected on the content site already in their cart. This allows Tony Robbins the potential for cross sells and upsells that were not possible in the past.

Lolli & Pops

A Lesson in Analytics & Conversion Reporting

Lolli & Pops is a luxury candy company that truly offers the best in specialty candy such as truffles, chocolates, and all manner of delicious treats as well as curated gift boxes for special occasions. They have locations all over the United States, from New Jersey to Chicago and California.

They have a beautiful, complex and highly custom existing Shopify store, but were having slight troubles with their analytics and tracking customer activity. Ultimately, this was making it difficult for them to receive valuable customer data in order to continue growing their business through a fluid customer experience. So, the team at Lolli and Pops came to Metacake as trusted Shopify Plus partners.

The Metacake tech geeks jumped right on it and performed an assessment of their Google Analytics installation setup to make sure it was configured correctly. In English: we spent time digging to understand how things worked in their online store. With their seamless store and checkout experience being so customized, they ended up breaking the standard analytics integration. So, this needed to be fixed as soon as possible.

The end goal? To implement full funnel analytics and conversion reporting, fine tune the customer experience in the checkout, and provide a custom installation of Google Tag Manager (better known as GTM), in order to tag the events and selections of the customer, including the tracking of micro events. This would be used to track customers through the funnel and assess where improvements to the experience might need to be made.

Through our team’s work we were able to deliver an analytics solution that provided tracking through the entire flow giving them valuable customer data to further grow their business. And you know we’re all about growth here at Metacake! We also delivered clean and accurate customer data to help them track campaigns, which helped them manage their marketing activities. Without accurate customer data and analytics, it’s impossible to grow.

Our expertise in working with Shopify and Google Analytics and our experienced development team allowed us to solve a big problem for Lolli & Pops that was hindering their growth.
