Shopify Announces Winner of “Build-A-Business Competition”

(PRWEB) February 29, 2012

Shopify, the leading ecommerce platform used to create and power online stores, today announced the winner of its Build-A-Business Competition, that is awarding a total of $ 500,000 in prizes and giveaways. Over 3,000 entrepreneurs created new online stores that sold over $ 12 million in products during the eight month competition period. The grand prize is awarded to Coffee Joulies, an innovative startup that crowd-sourced funding on Kickstarter and built their ecommerce store on Shopify.

Coffee Joulies are polished stainless steel beans that regulate the temperature of coffee. The product was developed by Dave Jackson and Dave Petrillo, two mechanical engineers from New Jersey. They went on Kickstarter to crowd-source their funding with a goal of $ 9,500 and ended up raising $ 306,944 with 4,818 backers.

I spent one evening building our online store on Shopify. We were accepting orders the next day and quickly sold out. Using Shopify for ecommerce eliminated most of the tedious parts associated with starting a business,” said Petrillo. “The only thing we have to focus on is our brand, our products, and our customers – the way it should be. We know if we build our brand slowly and carefully, we can make Coffee Joulies a million dollar business by the end of the year,” said Jackson.

Coffee Joulies wins Shopifys grand prize of $ 100,000 cash, along with VIP trips to New York City and San Francisco to meet Seth Godin, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Timothy Ferriss. These meetings are intended to provide the winners with high-end business and marketing advice to further grow their company.

In addition to the grand prize, Shopify is awarding a total of $ 150,000 cash and $ 60,000 in Google AdWords credits to the following industry and regional category winners:

Tattly: Tina Roth Eisenberg was frustrated that childrens rub-on tattoos were often poorly designed. Tina (aka Swiss Miss), opened her own temporary tattoo online store featuring art by famous designers.

Opena Case: Rob Ward and Chris Peters solved a dilemma of epic proportions, having a cold beer but no way of opening it. Whats the one thing you always have on you? Your phone. Solution: an iPhone bottle opener.

FlockStocks: Sophie Kovic was working at a local movie theatre until she read Tim Ferriss book The 4-Hour Workweek. She followed his step-by-step business plan and created a feather hair extension online store. Her feathers are selling all around the world.

NeuYear: Jesse Phillips was disillusioned with his computer science degree and became determined to save himself from a life working in a cubicle. He semi-quit his day job and developed an artistic one-year calendar poster.

MyFootyBoots: Brad Jorgensen was tired of overpriced soccer cleats in his home country, Australia. He found suppliers and opened an online store offering fair prices.

Simply Hops: Small batch beer makers often have difficulty finding a variety of quality hops available for purchase in small quantities. Simply Hops was developed to cater to craft brewers that dont want to make expensive bulk purchases.

Clearpath Robotics: Matthew Randall and four other mechanical engineers from the University of Waterloo created an open-source and fully customizable robot called TurtleBot. Its currently the most powerful and capable entry-level robot in the world.

This is Shopifys second Build-A-Business Competition, the first of which DODOcase took home the $ 100,000 grand prize. This years competition exceeded all our expectations and we couldnt be happier with the results. We are blown away by the quality of all 3,060 online stores that were created to compete, and I cant wait to start writing checks for the winners, said Tobias L

Google unifica su política de privacidad para todos sus servicios

Tweet Hasta ahora, Google tenía hasta 70 documentos distintos sobre privacidad y condiciones de uso para sus diversos servicios y productos. Esto chocaba un poco con su idea de simplicidad y de unificación de todos sus servicios. Por eso, han unificado todas sus políticas de privacidad en una sola con la idea de crear una experiencia de usuario simple e intuitiva en todo Google. La idea es recabar en un solo texto las políticas de casi todos sus productos y explicar qué tipo de información recolectan y guardan y cómo utilizan estos datos de forma lo más sencilla posible para que lo entienda todo el mundo. Para Google es importante que el usuario entienda qué se hace con esta información. La idea es que Google será capaz de avisarte de que llegas tarde a una reunión basándose en tu calendario de google, en tu localización y en las previsiones del tiempo y del tráfico locales. Las reacciones de los usuarios ante esto son básicamente dos: los que creen que es algo buenísimo, y los que creen que es una invasión de la privacidad. A mí me parece algo muy bueno, y creo que Google simplemente está tratando de mejorar su producto. Pero por otro lado, sabemos que aunque Google garantice la total privacidad (a excepción quizá de que use los datos para mostrarnos publicidad), en cualquier momento puede venir un gobierno y quedarse con todos los datos de millones de personas como recientemente hemos visto con el cierre de Megaupload. Aquí las políticas de privacidad de Google para consultar. ¿qué os parece? Tweet

Prayer Goes Social on Episcopal Church Drupal Website

Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) February 28, 2012

The Episcopal Church has embraced the Internet to help its members embrace the Church. Among the features now available on its new website developed by Drupal developer Duo Consulting, church members can submit their prayers, view other prayers and like prayers to offer their support. In addition to bringing information on missions, feasts, fasts, sermons and doctrine to its members, the Church also offers perspective for non-members on what the Church stands for and what it means to be Episcopalian.

The requirement to launch quickly, on budget and with a broad new and imaginative set of feature requirements dictated the Drupal open source content management platform and led the Church to Duo Consulting. The Episcopal Church and Duo worked together to construct a site that was easy for non-technical staff to manage. The Duo team worked miracles, held our hands and delivered on time, says Barry Merer, manager of web services and social media for the Episcopal Church. Features of the new site include:
