NEW YORK, NY (November 10, 2021) — Yotpo, an eCommerce marketing platform, today hosted the first event in a new quarterly series, Yotpo Tech Talk, created to provide merchants with an open forum to participate and ask questions about the releases, updates, and announcements covered by Yotpo product experts. The introduction of this open forum event series demonstrates Yotpo’s commitment to consistent and transparent innovation that powers high-impact marketing experiences for eCommerce brands.

“Bringing the latest innovations directly to our customers is our top priority,” says Rosa Hu, VP of Product Marketing at Yotpo. “Our brands are active participants in the innovation and growth of every product on the Yotpo eCommerce Marketing Platform, and we’re constantly listening and acting on feedback. With Yotpo Tech Talks, we’re showcasing that feedback loop by walking through exciting impactful releases, big and small, while providing another opportunity for attendees to participate in product development.”

Today, the inaugural Yotpo Tech Talk unveiled Yotpo’s new integration with Meta during a fireside chat between Pranjal Boghara, Product Marketing Manager, Commerce at Meta and Erika Kwee, Product Marketing Manager, Reviews at Yotpo.

Attendees also learned about the latest product releases for the Yotpo’s SMS Marketing solution and Loyalty & Referrals solutions, and gained insights into how these product updates will optimize their business operations by strengthening community advocacy, increasing retention, and driving engagement. 

Today, we announced:

Yotpo Reviews

  • Yotpo Reviews Syndication for Shops on Facebook and Instagram

Yotpo is now an integration partner for Reviews Syndication onto shops on Facebook and Instagram. Meta is heavily investing in commerce, and this agreement is an exciting expansion of Yotpo’s long-standing partnership with Meta.

Syndicating Yotpo Reviews to shops on Facebook and Instagram helps brands accelerate sales, build immediate credibility, and increase the quantity of reviews and reviewed products. Reviews syndicated to Shops can also help minimize barriers to purchase on Facebook and Instagram. 

“Being able to syndicate our Yotpo reviews directly to our Facebook shop was easy to do and has been extremely helpful in getting more reviews on our Facebook shop quickly. As a skincare company, more social proof is key to enhancing the experience when customers are browsing our products.” – Gianna De La Torre, Co-Founder of Wildling Beauty

There are 1.2 million active Facebook Shops and more than 300 million people interacting with them every month. Creating a shop on Facebook and Instagram is free and simple. Sellers can bring their business online and connect with customers wherever and whenever it’s convenient

The Yotpo integration with Meta strengthens their shared mission of empowering 

businesses  to help grow reach and increase sales while giving consumers the information they need to make the right purchase decision. Sellers on shops on Facebook and Instagram run the full range, from small businesses to large businesses, and they use a wide array of eCommerce platforms to power their shopping experiences. Yotpo plays a key role in powering the Reviews and Ratings experience for many of these sellers. 

This feature is currently available by request to Shops on Instagram and Facebook in the United States with checkout enabled and that use Yotpo Reviews.

In addition, the new Campaign and Flow Analytics Dashboards give brands the ability to track critical message metrics in real-time, including revenue, cost, click-through rate, conversion rate, and ROI. Merchants can monitor the results of A/B tests to better understand performance and define winning strategies.

Merchants can also track SMS performance in parallel to other marketing channels with new revenue tracking settings that mirror the logic used across their tech stack. Brands can configure attribution rules to the appropriate time, length, strategy, and reporting efforts.
