Apple announced last month that it's launching a new classical music app. What’s novel about the Apple Music Classical app is how it lets music fans more easily search thousands of variations of the same song. For example, let’s say you want to find a Johann Sebastian Bach song. Over the past 300 years, many musicians have done ‘covers’ of his works, and there are variations by conductor, music, year, etc., thereby producing thousands of variations. Existing software ...
Your Shop Local Store has a new feature: Registrants can now invite friends to open a registry at your store. The new "Help a Friend" feature on registry lists allows registrants to send a text message to their friends with an invitation to open a registry.
In the example shown, we see a registry list at Luxury Gift Shop. In the "Help a Friend" box, the registrant can click the "See Details & Invite Friend" link to refer their friend to your registry service....
About 15 years ago, I bought a pair of Crocs sandals in Myrtle Beach, SC. Not only were they hot pink, but the insole was traffic cone orange. My buddies hated them, but oddly others loved them. The sandals were affordable (maybe $20), comfortable, and a conversation starter.
According to last week’s The New York Times' profile on Crocs, I’m one of tens of millions of happy Crocs owners. This happiness is profitable:
We love to mix patterns - don't you? But we also love mixing colors, shapes, and textures as well. Our Cantaria Charger in Morning Sky is a great base for any place setting. We've added the registry-favorite Isabella Pure White Octagonal Dinner and Azores Blue Lagoon Stripe Salad and Mug. Our new Botanical napkin (coming soon!!) is the perfect spring addition!
We are BEYOND excited to finally show off one of our newest patterns - Azores Oceana! This new addition to our Azores collection features a beautiful blue hand painted simple edge. Oceana has already become a registry favorite and it mixes so well with several other patterns!
Registry-favorite Historia looks great on all tables! For a more casual look, stick with the simple salad's pebble edge. To dress things up, mix it up with our assorted embossed salads. Each of these decorated salads is inspired by irons works found in some of Europe's most beautiful cities - Lisbon, Versailles, Milan, and Vienna. What's your favorite??

Your Online Store has a new feature: We've made it easier for you and your registrants to view information about a registry's gift givers. There is now a dedicated Gift Givers page that displays purchases grouped by the gift giver.
Traditionally, orders are organized by date. This page groups orders by the gift giver. The page outputs a registry’s gift givers’ emails and addresses on one page making it handy to manage thank you notes.
I was happy to see Tableware Today magazine share our experiences and lessons regarding the power of free shipping.

THE LAST WORD
FREE SHIPPING PAYS OFF
by JASON SOLAREK
Most indie stores don’t have the technical ability or people power to track pricing and offer discounts like free shipping. Indie stores need this information or they’ll be left behind. This information can make a difference: in ...

When growing our network, we consider what it takes to keep existing members and grow into other industries. Andrew Chen in The Cold Start Problem reports that Facebook famously wanted a user to get 10 friends in a week because then the person would likely use the service. Similarly, Slack said users with about 10 connections tend to become active users. My company currently doesn’t have such new user benchmarks and we need to develop them.
