Excellent Tools to Help Manage Your Online Store (Part 2)

This continues our last blog post about excellent tools for managing your ecommerce store. For this post, we’ll focus more on Shopify apps you can directly install via Shopify’s app store.

Sweet Tooth

Customer loyalty programs are a great way to get your audience coming back for more. When you incentivize customers to return to your store, the chances that they’ll come back increases exponentially. You can start accomplishing this through Sweet Tooth, a customer loyalty app that takes less than 10 minutes to set up, but it gives you endless access to customer rewards systems that help you make more money and keep a loyal consumer base.

ReCharge

This app has actually been the number one sales app in the Shopify store for months. It focuses on recurring billing, which can be a lifesaver if you operate on a B2B level or offer subscription products/services. This can be great for businesses like beauty bag or blogging subscription services where you need to schedule payments for recurring billing cycles.

Rare.io

This simple to use application has a lot of features, and many Shopify storefront owners prefer it to other, more heard of services like Mailchimp or Aweber. These platforms don’t fit seamlessly into the Shopify system, but Email Autmoation does. It helps you track customer behavior, gives you various email templates, and allows you to automatically create and send emails with personalized flair to targeted groups.

Social Media Stream

You don’t have to outsource all of your Shopify related social media if you want to succeed. Social Media Stream directly ties your Shopify store to the social media accounts you choose, like Instagram and Twitter. This allows you to gain more followers and visibility.

Yotpo

User-generated content has been found to be one of the best ways to market your store online — especially when you don’t want to spend a lot of money. One of the best free ways to get UGC on your site, as well as a great opportunity to optimize your Shopify SEO, is to install Yotpo. This app lets customers leave reviews directly on your site.

Lucky Orange

If you aren’t checking in on your Shopify analytics, you’ve got a big problem on your hands. Don’t know how? Never fear — Lucky Orange is here. This all-in-one analytics application is a powerhouse that provides you an indepth look into the most vital analytics statistics so you can make your shop better and better every day.

Sufio

Need a quick, simple way to create an account invoice? While it’s always great to have a backup copy (and trust us — we know backups), Sufio can be a way to easily generate accounting reports without ever having to balance a checkbook or learn a thing about accounting. These invoices aren’t just black, white and boring all over, either. They look professional and add a little of your own pizazz through custom options.

We’ve given you some great options for your Shopify management, so now is the time to decide which will work for you. Pick one, or pick them all — no matter which you select, you’re sure to improve the Shopify experience for both your customers and yourself.
