Shopify Plus is a profitable ecommerce solution for retailers of all sizes due to its friendly user interface, powerful customization tools, and world-class technology infrastructure.
One of the best things about Shopify is its vast marketplace of 3rd party apps designed to work seamlessly with the platform. Shopify apps are a great way to add new functionality to your website without having to be an expert programmer. Check out these five awesome apps to help supercharge your Shopify Plus Store!
Email marketing is one of the most powerful (and often overlooked) tools in an online retailer’s toolkit. Creating engaging email content that is uniquely relevant to a particular customer can greatly increase your chances that the customer will return to your store over and over again. Klaviyo provides powerful customer segmentation and email tools which allow you to target customers based on usage behavior, browsing habits, social media attributes, and more. The ability to pinpoint target customers with custom tailored marketing is a game changer for any online retailer!
Rewards programs are a great way to keep your customers engaged and loyal to your brand. Smile.io makes building out and maintaining a rewards program faster and simpler than ever before! Did you know that 26% of customers say they prefer to shop at stores with loyalty programs? Allow customers to accrue points, refer friends, and gain VIP status with your store without ever having to write a line of code!
Subscription services are becoming increasingly popular and are a powerful tool to enable recurring revenue for your business. The only problem...building a subscription service is technically complex and can be extremely confusing! ReCharge Recurring Billing & Subscriptions provides your business with everything you need to get your subscriptions service up and running fast!
Including wishlist functionality into your online store is an extremely effective way to reduce shopping cart abandonment by providing your customers with an easy reminder about a product they are considering buying. Wishlist Plus by Swym Corporation seamlessly adds this functionality to any Shopify store and is easily configurable without any coding knowledge. Your users don’t even need to be logged in to save their favorite items.; it also allows them to easily share their wishlists with family and friends, which can be a great marketing tool in itself!
You’d be surprised if you walked into a store and there were no store employees to answer your questions and help you find what you were looking for. Why should online stores be any different?
