Looka Review 2020 (Formerly LogoJoy)

It’s no secret that machines have been ruling the world of production for quite some time now. But, admittedly, we never thought they’d start taking over even the field of design this early.

All in all, welcome to the era of AI design! And more specifically, welcome aboard the as we roll out the red carpet for AI-based logo creators.

The Best Managed WordPress Hosting Providers for 2020

While general WordPress sites should be fine with typical WordPress hosting solutions, the bare minimum for online stores is managed WordPress hosting.

But, here’s the thing about it. Compared to other types of services, managed WordPress hosting doesn’t come cheap at all. It would cost you anywhere between tens of dollars to thousands of dollars a month.

Now, going by this cost range, it certainly wouldn’t make sense settling for any random hosting provider. Let’s leave that to novice merchants for now.

A serious WordPress-based ecommerce website, on the other hand, should go for nothing but the best managed WordPress hosting services. The type of hosting that’s truly optimized for WordPress, offering specialized capabilities that are indeed worth every single penny.

Constant Contact Pricing for 2020 – The Complete Guide

Constant Contact is one of those brand names that almost everyone in the ecommerce and digital marketing spaces is seemingly familiar with. The company has promoted its products widely and it continues to make a name for itself, especially when it comes to email marketing. We’ll give them that.

But, while many people are now vaguely aware of its powerful email marketing features (which you can learn from our detailed Constant Contact Review here), there’s a lot of confusion surrounding Constant Contact pricing.

Now, there are good reasons why businesses are increasingly falling in love with PWA. I’ll reveal all of them shortly. For now, though, allow me to introduce a specific application that will help you understand the whole concept of leveraging PWA.

Firepush Review – Omnichannel Re-Marketing App for Shopify Stores

If you’re a Shopify user, I bet you’ve already tried out some of its default marketing and promotion tools. So, of course, you must have noticed that while a few of the features are pretty decent, the bulk of its default customer engagement functionalities leave much to be desired.

Call it what you want, but the truth of the matter is, Shopify just doesn’t offer the marketing features you need to properly drive conversions. But, on the bright side, at least the platform is flexible enough to support a wide range of third-party app integrations.

Now, at the top of my integrations wish list are marketing apps. I’m always on the lookout for the best marketing apps on the Shopify App Store. Consequently, an omnichannel marketing app with an overall rating of 4.8 stars from more than 600 reviews is one thing you can bet I wouldn’t fail to notice.

And that’s how I discovered Firepush, which happens to be an omnichannel marketing app for Shopify, capable of email marketing, SMS marketing, web push messages, plus Facebook messenger marketing.

And how do you create a brand with the potential of growing as big as Gucci? Any specific software out there that can save you the trouble of hiring designers?

Fortunately yes. And that’s precisely what this post covers.
