We’re all about helping retailers grow their business, so we put together a list of some awesome tools to help Shopify merchants increase their revenue.
Retargeting is a valuable marketing tool that helps to capture lost sales and encourage return visits to your site. The RetargetApp makes retargeting easier by allowing retailers to set up Facebook retargeting campaigns with few a clicks. You just set up the campaign and walk away.
The secret sauce behind the RetargetApp is that which ads a user sees depends on their previous interactions with your site, meaning they will only see products they have already shown an interest in.
There’s one more reason to use the RetargetApp: reduced cost per visitor. The app has been optimized in such a way that the average cost per visitor is roughly half of the industry standard.
The app’s dashboard gives you an overview of some stats such how many times your ads have been viewed, how many times your products have been added to a cart, and how much revenue it has driven.
2. Quick Facebook Chat
With conversational commerce becoming more important to ecommerce, it seems appropriate to include an app that makes it easy to chat with customers. Enter Quick Facebook Chat.
Quick Facebook Chat is a live chat app that connects your Facebook page with the shopper’s. The advantage of this app is not only that it helps to increase Facebook likes but that it allows you to take a look at that shopper’s profile so you can provide personalized support.
Another reason why retailers like the Quick Facebook Chat app is that they’ve focused on making it easy to use. The installation is simple and doesn’t require any coding. You can even chat with customers on your mobile device, meaning you can keep shoppers engaged from anywhere.
You can check out how the app works on their demo store.
Letting shoppers pay for their purchase over time is a great way for retailers to capture more sales and increase order values. And FuturePay makes that possible. FuturePay is an online payment option that allows retailers to offer their customers a flexible, instant financing option so they can buy now and pay later without a credit card.
In terms of benefits, the number speak for themselves. FuturePay retailers capture up to 37% more customers and shoppers using it spend an average of 173% more.
Here you can see how FuturePay sits alongside your other payment options.
Having a mobile-friendly or mobile-responsive site is a must for ecommerce retailers today. Fortunately, Shopgate makes it easy for Shopify retailers to create a beautifully responsive site design. Their platform boasts over 200 features to help you manage your mobile channel and sell more, such as push notifications and a store locator using GPS.
Perhaps you would prefer to have a standalone app rather than (or in addition to) a mobile site. Shopgate does that too, and there’s no coding required.
Social proof is a great way for retailers to build customer trust and drive sales, but getting customers to leave a review isn’t always easy. That where Yotpo can help. When a customer makes a purchase, Yotpo sends them a post-purchase email that includes an in-mail form for user to leave a review. These email tend to be quite successful, as Yotpo users typically generate 9x more product reviews compared to other review apps.
Yopto was also designed for mobile shoppers. When someone receives a review request on their mobile, they can provide a review without ever leaving their email app.
Yotpo’s in-mail review functionality comes in an out-of-the-box version that is free to use and will help to generate more customer review. But there are also paid plans that add additional functionality, such as coupons and Google Seller Ratings.
If that wasn’t enough, they’ve added the ability for Shopify retailers to simply play-and-play.
