From Startup to Scale: Stori Coffee's Innovative Approach to E-Commerce and Marketing Technologies
By Joel Cummings
As a small start-up, Stori didn’t need a robust set of tools today. Still, like all companies, they needed a scalable solution that would grow with the company, supporting both their direct-to-consumer and wholesale accounts.
Stori Coffee, a new startup with several wholesale accounts, wanted to create a direct-to-consumer channel via an e-commerce store with the ability to scale and expand to Amazon.
Challenge: Implement the necessary tools and architect for the future.
As a small startup, Stori only needed a small subset of tools to use today, but like most companies, they desired a scalable solution that would grow with the company to support both their direct-to-consumer and wholesale accounts.
“Assemble has been a great technology partner. Helping us optimize the tools we have while planning for the technology we need in the future. As a small team, they help us operate as a big team”
- Arthur, Co-Founder of Stori Coffee
Approach: Build a scalable solution
Assemble worked alongside the Stori Coffee team to help architect a unique sitemap. Finding and connecting the right apps for the tech stack was very important to optimize sales and marketing channels. Assemble connected HubSpot to Shopify, allowing Stori to upload their current email and customer lists and send segmented marketing emails. The team also connected Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager, so it was easy for Stori to add and manage marketing pixels, both now and in the future. And lastly, upgraded their universal analytics account to the new GA4.
Solution: A scalable MarTech and Sales Solution
Assemble helped the Stori Coffee team create a Shopify for e-commerce with HubSpot for CDP, email automation, blog content, Google Analytics, and Google Tag Manager for data and marketing tags.
