Bridge Store Celebrates Its 10th Birthday

Ten years ago, we created a key part of the software that helps our retailers, brands, and reps.

Prior to Bridge Store, we had to make unique sites for these businesses and this was slow and expensive. Then we created Bridge Store, a template-based website with a shared code base.  This enabled us to much more quickly and cost efficiently setup online accounts and stores.

The success of Bridge Store is evident in user  growth: a decade ago we had just a ...Read more of post

Happy Presidents Day: George Washington VS Amazon

Shopify's Chief Operating Office said on CNBC last week:

“While other companies are trying to build empires, we are arming the rebels...”

That's a clever quote that could be applied to our retailer base. Bridge is helping hundreds of retail 'rebels' fight back against the hegemony of Amazon.  Bridge gives indie stores and brands the software tools they need to connect, sell, and grow. 

Today is President's Day, and ...Read more of post

3 Factors Hurting Retail

What is killing retail? Austan Goolsbee, a University of Chicago economics professor, shares three factors other than the Internet affecting retail including: big-box discount stores, a shrinking middle class, and shoppers preferring ‘services’ over tangible things. 

I found this except interesting:

“In 1920, Americans spent more than half their income on food (38 percent) and clothing (17 percent) and almost all of that was through ...Read more of post

Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

Curious why you don’t sell more online? Answer: selling online is brutally competitive. Just ask Brandless, a company with more than  $100m in funding that just closed and laid off all 70 employees. Selling online often produces the opposite of what you’d expect: thin margins. 

One bright spot in e-commerce: gift registries. Gift registry orders have higher margins, lower customer acquisition costs, and a built-in promoter for your site: the ...Read more of post

My Dad

Dear Friends, 

I’m writing to sadly share that my dad Don Solarek passed away last week.  He was quiet, thoughtful, and would gladly walk in New York City from the Battery to Harlem. 

Don always had time to chat with me, share a story, give a lesson, and encourage me.  He helped me with my paper route at 6 am when it was 3º in Rochester. He came to every high school cross country race and wrestling match—which were often held ...Read more of post

Do Brands and Stores Need to Collaborate on Advertisements?

I visited the New York’s Post website--to get my fill of New York gossip--and I was shown a massive advertisement from a leading tabletop brand.  (I have covered the brand's logo with yellow rectangles for the privacy of the brand.) Before visiting the Post's site, I had visited this brand's website. The ads appear because the brand has hired some advertising platform to track me around the web, show me ads, and direct me back to its DTC (direct to...Read more of post
