Power up your online store
One of the most popular WordPress shop tools, WooCommerce offers lots of great add-ons to its core online store functionality. These affordable extensions can build trust, streamline the purchasing process and automate marketing. If you use WooCommerce and your goal is to increase online sales (who doesn’t want this?), then these five tools can act as a fantastic starting point.
1. Product Reviews Pro
A good review has a powerful influence on a shopper’s decision to buy. This WooCommerce extension provides Amazon.com style review tools including the ability to ask questions of past buyers. Reviewers can add photos and videos of products, as well.
2. One Page Checkout
Make the purchasing process lightning quick with One Page Checkout. Build special pages in your WooCommerce shop with a specific selection of products and use this tool to enable buyers to choose products, checkout & pay all on the same page.
“WooCommerce Recommendations by Graphflow turbo-charges your WooCommerce store with the power of industry-leading recommendations technology.” Using behavior flow, this tool generates recommendations that are more relevant for your online store shoppers.
Help customers keep track of all of the cool products on your online store with this Wishlist add-on tool. It supports an unlimited number of Wishlists, which can be shared via social media or email.
5. Follow-up Emails
Combine the power of email marketing with your online store. Keep your customers involved with your brand post-purchase by building an automatic follow-up email process. Not quite a full blown CRM, this handy shop add-on makes it easy to manage your customer relationships.
“Spend your time and resources smarter, build email templates to send single emails to customers, and automate your email marketing to increase the value of your existing customer base and acquire new customers. An email marketing strategy will immediately impact your top-line revenue. When it comes to converting your efforts into sales, email still outperforms search 2 to 1, and social 8 to 1.” – WooCommerce Website
