Once you’ve assembled the basic components of your Volusion website, the next step is tweaking it to fit your needs. The Volusion App Store offers useful apps – new and old, free and paid – that facilitate task work, improve your sales, and give you e-store a boost.
Volusion’s App Store is still in beta testing, so the range of apps is limiting when compared to other ecommerce solutions. However, there are dozens of apps available and our goal is to point out the best ones. Here are the top 7 Volusion plugins (apps) for improving your ecommerce store:
Smart Conversions (by Spring Metrics)
Description: For excellent analytics and behavioral targeting, Spring Metrics is it (and your only real option). Get a quick, real-time overview of your marketing channels and customer conversions with just a few screens. Then use the data to create targeted, real-time customer offers, boosting your revenue in the process.
Cost: from $199/month
Description: Mailchimp is basically the go-to email marketing solution today, so to have it integrate seamlessly with your Volusion store is a blessing. Manage your customer lists, deploy newsletters, and track performance in a jiffy.
Yotpo Social Reviews System
Description: How is someone supposed to know how awesome your products are without customer reviews? That’s why Yotpo’s social review system is so important – we love it and recommend it to everyone. It’s easy to install and even easier for your customers to read and write reviews.
Justuno Social Offers
Description: Prevent customers from leaving your store in search of coupons by offering them one upfront. When customers sign up, Like, Tweet, or +1, they’ll receive a coupon code right away. It’s a win-win situation – one that keeps your customers shopping and saves them time and money.
Cost: from FREE
Description: Increase traffic and sales by targeting lost customers with your product advertisements, drawing them back to your site. It’s simple and effective and how much you pay is up to you. We love this concept and you should experience a huge ROI in no time!
Cost: per use
Description: Business owners who don’t leverage abandoned cart emails are missing out on a huge source of revenue. Customers frequently drop what their doing and walk away while shopping, so Rejoiner helps you win back that lost business with personalized emails.
Cost: from $99/month
Description: With so many stories in the news about hacking, online theft, and fraudulent websites, adding an SSL certificate will help give your customers peace of mind and make them happier to transact. It’s a small thing to do, but will have a big impact on how customers view your site.
