What's new in the world of e-commerce data

Salesforce Integration

We've just released an integration with Salesforce, a popular customer relationship management platform. With the Salesforce integration enabled, accounts on all plans can manually create new Salesforce accounts from Store Leads domains. Existing Salesforce accounts can also be manually updated. Accounts on the Pro or Elite plans can also: Automatically update all Salesforce accounts with the latest Store Leads data. This happens automatically as soon as we refresh our data (weekly).

Historical App Review Counts

We recently added historical tracking for the number of reviews left on apps. Seeing the number of reviews for an app in a graph makes it easy to see how quickly an app is growing reviews. You can find this information on any app detail page. Review count history for app. Data goes back to the end of July 2020.

Introducing List Actions

Lists are an easy way to keep track of e-commerce stores that are interesting for any reason. Store Leads has built-in lists that track all favorited stores and all stores that have a note. It's also possible to create your own custom lists by manually adding stores to a list or by saving a search as a list. Once your account has a list, it's possible to both search within the list and export all stores in the list to a CSV.

Detailed App Breakdowns

Breakdowns on app detail pages give you insight into an app's install rate across certain dimension, like category, country and co-installed apps. While this was useful information, if you wanted to derive more advanced insight, like the lift provided by the app across values in the dimension, then you'd need to export all app data and run your own calculations. We've updated our app detailed page to provide this information directly.

Automatic Tags

We are now automatically labeling (or tagging) stores in our database if the store is interesting for some reason. For instance, a store that is rapidly growing Instagram followers will be tagged as "Trending on Instagram". Here are the tags we support: Dropshipper: The store is using a dropshipping app. Print on Demand: The store is using a print-on-demand app. Trending on Facebook: The store has at least 5,000 Facebook followers and at least 5% growth over the last 30 days.

TikTok

E-commerce stores have started to use TikTok, the latest social media craze, to engage with their customers. Adoption is still relatively low but growing quickly. We've just added TikTok accounts for over 2,000 stores in our database. Use the Social Media and Contact Info search filter to refine the list of domains to include only domains with accounts on specific social media networks. Social media and contact info filter.

Improved Social Network Follower Data

Filtering stores on the number of social network followers is one of our most popular features. But simply knowing the number of followers a store has isn't always enough. Often, you'll want to find stores that are growing their follower count quickly. To address this use case, we've added a history of follower counts for each of the store's social network to the domain details. Follower count history.

Advanced search preserves filters

Advanced Search can be a little tricky to use but it is only option if you want to run complex searches (like filtering out stores running a specific app). Often, you'll start by running a Basic Search and later realize that you need to switch to Advanced Search to get the best results. In doing so, you have to enter the search parameters again because switching to Advanced Search would result in a brand new search.

Segment Stores by Pricing Plan Change Date

Let's say that you want to find all Shopify stores that have switch to Shopify Plus since a specific date. To support this use case, we've added a filter that allows you to find stores based on the last date that they changed pricing plans. To do this, switch to Advanced Search and add the filters from the screenshot below. Last Plan Change filter. Then click the Execute Search button to see all stores that have switched to Shopify Plus since the provided date.
