    Jordan Gal is the founder and CEO of Cart Hook. On the Happy Progress podcast, we covered a variety of topics related to startup growth and Shopify. Some of the key highlights of the interview include: CartHook was founded in 2015 as an abandoned cart app. In 2017, we launched post-purchase upsells.


    Startup Growth - Success & Growing Pains:
    Growing a Startup in a fast-moving, ever-changing Shopify and eCommerce ecosystem
    Learn about the Future of Shopify
    We also cover a brief intro into Headless Ecommerce and discuss if  Shopify Plus customers going to want more advanced features like Headless Commerce or different needs of enterprise ecommerce companies.
    Post-Purchase Upsells with Shopify
    There are a variety of ways of doing post purchase up-sells and cross-sells. CartHook will now have a Shopify app. One example of a post-purchase upsells is to up-sell a "Monthly Subscription". You're offering automatic delivery of a product they know they'll run out of (that's a time saver for them). By buying now, they lock in a lower price (that's a huge saving over time).

    Some of the companies mentioned on this podcast: Shopify, Shopify Plus, Shogun Landing Page, Liquid Landing Pages, Builder.io Headless CMS.

    010. I'm NOT Happy - Self Doubt Solved with Podcasting for Public Speaking

    010. I'm NOT Happy - Self Doubt Solved with Podcasting for Public Speaking

    Happyprogress.com - My mom told me I was MUTE and now I'm introverted. That doesn't make for a great public speaker or podcaster. 

    In honor of mental health day, I decided to open about what I have been really feeling. I haven't been happy. There isn't a specific reason why, but it's really something I've struggled with most of my life. We all put a lot of pressure on ourselves but it's important to have self-awareness about what we are really going through. I discuss how I got into podcasting, been stuck in my head with self-doubt, imposter syndrome, and dealt with social anxiety my whole life. 

    Some of the topics mentioned in the show: Hollywood Florida, Mitch Joel - Six Pixels of Separation, CC Chapman - Managing the Grey, SXSW, creating a podcast, Tony Robbins UPW, small business, startups, and business.

    008. Landing Pages for Paid Advertising & Social Media - Website Optimization Tips

    Happyprogress.com - New tip to increase your website sales and generate more leads. Today we are talking about landing pages. What are landing pages, why are they used, and how to determine how you can create your own landing page and funnel experience for your paid advertising campaigns and social media. 

    If you need an easy way to create landing pages, I recommend the software Unbounce, Instapage, Click Funnels, and your own CMS.

    006. Gary Vaynerchuk on Self Awareness - GaryVee of Vaynermedia & Vayner Sports

    006. Gary Vaynerchuk on Self Awareness - GaryVee of Vaynermedia & Vayner Sports

    Happyprogress.com - Many years ago I met Gary Vaynerchuk at the FOWA conference (Ryan Carson of Treehouse) in Miami, Florida. When I saw him on stage, I thought who is this guy, sho does he think he is any and I really like him. I really want to meet him and see what makes him so passionate. From there I followed Gary to many other conferences and wine library parties including SXSW and the Thunder Cruise. The Thunder Cruise was an all-inclusive cruise that Gary hosted as a wine tasting event. 

    This track really inspired me to think differently about my self-awareness. I would listen to this in a Soundcloud playlist to help aspire me to take action and approach different scenarios related to my career and future thought process. 

    Do you have a soundtrack, motivational video, or speaker that has really inspired you? Share it with Alex Harris aka AlexDesigns today...
