Shopping cart software leader 3dcart and NextBee Media - a cutting-edge Viral Marketing Software company - announced today a collaborative venture that will bring affordable and technologically superior marketing solutions to 3dcart merchants.
With NextBee’s Viral Marketing software plug-in, 3dcart merchants can increase their online sales, drive traffic to their sites, grow their subscriber list and gain the social media presence needed for ecommerce success.
“At 3dcart we’re committed to offer our merchants the best marketing tools to help their online stores become profitable and successful,” said Jimmy Rodriguez; Chief Technology Officer at 3dcart. “Together, NextBee and 3dcart will deliver a turn-key marketing solution that helps online businesses revolutionize their marketing power, reach a much larger consumer base and boost repeat sales.”
NextBee Media is the first ever platform as a service solution for word of mouth marketing. New and existing 3dcart merchants of all sizes; and across multiple industries, will have the ability to set up and run referral campaigns, loyalty reward programs, contests, customer reviews, and cross site promotions. They can go from sign-up, to set-up, to launch without any additional development efforts - making this a powerful tool for all online businesses.
"Our focus is on helping ecommerce business owners; who might otherwise not have the marketing budgets or the development resources needed, to enjoy the same access to social media trends and viral marketing traction as companies that have in-house marketing teams and unlimited resources.” states Ashish Mohole, Chief Technology Officer and VP of Products at NextBee Media. “Affordability, however, does not mean lacking. Every one of our marketing solutions is fully loaded with features such as advanced tracking, customized intuitive widgets, and easy to access data for full campaign optimization and the ability to change campaigns on the fly.”
Existing 3dcart merchant, Anu-Skin Store started using NextBee’s referral marketing software prior to this collaboration - with stunning results. “I already trust and rely on 3dcart to host and manage my online business, and when I wanted to implement a referral reward program for my customers in order to increase my sales and brand awareness, I decided to use NextBee as the platform provider.” commented Anu-Skin Manager, Mike Schwitz. “I chose them for my campaign due to their abundance of features, their superior technology and their affordability. I am more than happy with the results. Combining the power and offerings of these two outstanding ecommerce leaders is any online business’ perfect recipe for success.”
NextBee Media and 3dcart already serve a number of top online retailers and with this new partnership, 3dcart offers the innovative NextBee marketing solution to over 10,000 online merchants. By implementing NextBee Viral Marketing, online merchants gain measurable improvements in referral sales and social media presence. A recent poll of businesses showed that nearly half of businesses count on referrals for over 80% of their sales, making this tool a must-have for online success.
"Once a retailer has built its online presence on a top ecommerce platform like 3dcart, the next important step is expanding its marketing presence to reach qualified shoppers who are ready to make a purchase. The integration of 3dcart and NextBee streamlines and optimizes this process," adds Jimmy Rodriguez. "Both 3dcart and NextBee believe in empowering merchants to sell more online. Together, our technologies provide a powerful combination for maximizing online sales."
