Product review is very important for a business owner to get testimonials for your products so others will trust you more. Also, you can improve your products through the review or recommendation they give. You can feedback to your suppliers and ask them to customize the item based on it if the idea is good.
But what if you’re just starting out and have no review for your product. Don’t worry, you can always import it from your supplier. For example, if you’re dropshipping from Aliexpress, you can import from Aliexpress directly to Shopify.
One of the keys to building a successful eCommerce store is upselling and cross-selling. Just look at your Amazon dashboard, on every product page, there is a section, frequently purchased with….. There they will upsell to something related to what you intended to buy and persuades you to buy more items.
Why is this important? Unless you have a huge fan base that will buy whatever you sell, most probably you’ll need to pay for the traffic to your sites. In order to compensate for the high CPA cost now, it is very important that you can increase the average cart value so you will make more revenue for each sale.
For more about upsell, you can read in the sales funnel here.
For some reason, someone might view your product page, add to cart, enters their details but not buying. They might be catching the train, being called to do something else or rushing for an appointment. They left their contact details and items in the shopping cart.
Many shop owners just ignore this, but this is actually a very important steps to increase your sales. Now you have their contact details, email them and tell them they left something here. Send them the link with special offer to close the deal.
This is a special app I would say. Not just an additional function, but a print-on-demand supplier. A similar model to dropshipping, but now you’re starting your own clothing line. All you need to do is have your design, either you can do it on your own on platforms like Canva or hiring a freelancer at Fiverr. Then, upload your design to Printful. It will be automatically sync to your Shopify product.
Now, the product is not printed yet. Printful will only print and deliver your item once someone order it.
While this might not be all of the top Shopify apps you need for our store, this is what we recommend and used for our. We highly recommend to only using selected apps that you need. Once again, never install all the apps in the store or your website will be so laggy and spammy.
