Pinterest is a great place for marketing your ecommerce brand with its 367 million users worldwide. It’s the fastest growing social network and one with a huge impact on ecommerce sales.

The coronavirus crisis is forcing many food businesses to focus on – or start – their online channel. Deliveries are the only way for restaurants to survive in many countries now. And the trend is likely to stay as people expect to be able to order anything online no matter the circumstances.
Our mission at Metrilo is to help entrepreneurs grow and thrive so as more and more food companies rely on ecommerce setups, we want to show you how you can grow your business in no time and make it (very well) through the crisis.
In times of uncertainty like now, people cut down their shopping. They might be cautious about their cash flow month in and month out, or they might think most purchases can wait. Whichever the reason, your ecommerce business may be hurt.

Some subscription-based brands have exploded to stardom: Harry’s, Dollar Shave Club, BirchBox, ipsy, Trunk Club, BarkBox, etc. not to mention Amazon Subscribe and Save.
You probably also want to reap the goodness of customer love as they do, but cannot offer subscriptions for some reason. We get it! Not all products and brands can immediately get thousands people on board paying monthly. Or because your customers buy at very different time intervals (you can monitor time between orders with Metrilo’s retention analysis).
