One Shared Client, Sideshow, is Exceeding Sales Expectations with Use of Social Sharing, Trending Wall, and Purchase Sharing
Charlotte, NC - AddShoppers, Inc., the fastest-growing onsite marketing platform, has enhanced its successful partnership with Upshot Commerce, developers of a comprehensive eCommerce platform with robust, enterprise-ready features.
One shared client of the two companies, Sideshow (www.sideshow.com) has had great success in integrating AddShoppers applications into their Upshot Commerce platform. Sideshow is a specialty manufacturer of licensed and proprietary collectible products. Their development team creates original designs and intricately detailed likenesses of popular characters from highly recognized brands, such as Star Wars, Marvel, DC Comics, The Lord of the Rings, and more. Sideshow had already developed a strong customer base, however, they wanted deeper information about their customers’ interests, browsing, and purchase behavior. They also wanted to understand the value of social sharing to each network and increase sharing to drive more traffic and social sales.
Working with both Upshot and AddShoppers has proved successful and painless. As Chris Pirrotta, Director of eCommerce for Sideshow, explained, “Both Upshot and AddShoppers have always been extremely effective in communication, providing timely and quick responses to issues.” Upshot provides “personal and intimate support from the team, with a history of responding to needs as they come up,” while getting a response from AddShoppers has been equally painless - “When you want an answer, they have it for you almost immediately.”
Over the last 16 years, working with Upshot has allowed Sideshow to craft the eCommerce platform that fit their business needs - including an affiliate program that allowed for growth internationally and a rewards program built with Sideshow customers in mind. These tools were integrated into an easy-to-use backend toolkit that allows Sideshow to manipulate their databases daily, responding to changes and trends in their market. A partnership with AddShoppers was a logical next step and has allowed Sideshow to better understand customer data and browsing behavior, allowing them to make informed marketing decisions and increase social engagement across their growing customer base.
Both companies are committed to client success, with a focus on engaging customers and growing revenue across channels.
