March 12th, 2015


So much of business, especially commerce, is now done on the web. A big part of having a successful e-commerce site is providing a good user experience for the customer. E-commerce software like Shopify make it all too easy to create beautiful and user-friendly online sites, and plugins and integrations make things easier on the commerce manager’s end. Here are four integrations that, when paired with e-commerce softwares, will increase usability and efficiency for everyone involved.

You probably use a few different applications to run your business, but it can cause headaches when they don’t sync and keep all your data up to date. Instead of wasting time  with duplicate data entry while still stressing that your separate apps might not all be synced, let itDuzzit do it all for you. This cloud integration platform organizes and facilitates data exchange between all your apps. You can quickly and easily connect your Shopify data with CRM platforms like Highrise or Project Management services like Asana. Then you can relax, and let it get to work for you.

Email marketing is still important. In early 2014, companies were already attributing 23% of their total sales to email marketing compared to 18% in 2013. That’s why a tool like MailChimp is so valuable. This service helps the user manage clients, send emails and track results. It also connects with Shopify—and is called Chimpified—as a free application, and allows you to seamlessly add customers to your mailing list, target email campaigns based on buying behavior, and automate email campaigns to drive repeated business.
