The Top 5 Must Have WooCommerce Plugins
November 5, 2021 | Jon Teodoro
WooCommerce is a great plugin for anyone running an ecommerce store through WordPress, but it probably doesn’t have everything you need built right in. Luckily, there are countless plugins and extensions you can add to your shop. We’re not going to make you comb through them all, though! Here are our top five favorites:
You probably already use Google Analytics (and if you don’t, start!), so why not streamline your web windows and monitor your web store’s performance right from your WordPress dashboard?
If you have a few hit products that are really driving traffic to your site, you probably want to prominently display them. MonsterInsights can do that for you! With its best selling products widget, all you have to do is select your favorite layout and MonsterInsights takes it from there, making sure best sellers are easy for your customers to find.
HubSpot offers users a whole wealth of knowledge related to digital marketing, all in a free, organized and easily-digestible dashboard. Through HubSpot, you can see your entire sales funnel in one place, sorted just about however you want. HubSpot’s CRM can track all of your customer interactions, no matter where they’re coming from—email, social media or phone call.
Google Product Feed
If your web store sells physical products, it’s about time you hop on the Google Shopping bandwagon, if you haven’t already! After all, Google Shopping ads drive about 76% of retail search ad spend and win 83% of all clicks, according to SmartInsights. With the Google Product Feed, you can create a real-time feed of your products or services to the Google Merchant Center—and it’s totally automated.
Loyalty Program by Advanced Coupons
Luckily, the trend of having a six-inch thick wallet loaded with loyalty cards is a thing of the past. But that doesn’t mean customers don’t still want to save money! It’s just done online now (seriously, your wallet thanks you). With Loyalty Program by Advance Coupons, your customers can earn points with each purchase and redeem them—without any extra work on your end. The plugin will message your customers as well about their points when they earn new ones, have points expiring, or have enough points to redeem, and all you have to do is sit back and watch the (also automated) reporting!
You know how it feels to constantly refresh your inbox, waiting for an answer to a question that’s weighing on you? You don’t want your customers to ever feel that way! In our culture of wanting everything when we want it, a chat option is crucial for business owners. The LiveChat plugin seamlessly integrates with your Google Analytics account and CRM, making sure your customers are always able to find the answers they need.
