The product may have come out of stock and may have become affected by promotional prices or discounts. The rate at which feedback and updating of information is carried out on the site from store managers may be related to the amount of buyers. Any delay may lead to the loss of some clients causing a bad reputation and poor advertisement.
Below are some ideas for the automation of your online store to help the growth and improvement of your business.
Shipping Matrix Rates
Sale Category Pro
Facebook Like Discount
Bulk Prices Updater
An essential part of the road to development of business is the automation of shipping options calculations. The Shipping Matrix Rates extension allows for the editing of pricing and altering of rates by making use of just a single CSV file. You will not need to hire anyone with expertise in coding to alter rates. Frankly speaking, getting qualified personnel requires more investments than making use of this module, which will provide the same result of work. Easy, fast, and perfectly calculated shipping options appear like the huge progress of the selling process, do you agree with me?
Let us discuss how it can be made possible. If an “X” company is the online store and due to high sales activity, the company requires the services of 3 employees who work simultaneously and are involved in the calculation of shipping rates. During a month, their services cost the company a salary for the employees, rent of the room in the office, maintenance of equipment ( electricity, functional computers, provision of a comfortable working atmosphere such as cooling systems, kitchen equipment, etc.). In the actual sense, those costs are quite relative and you can utilize the method of visualization to relate this information as closely as possible to your business. However, the approximate total cost in the calculation of individual shipping rates for your customers will be much more compared with making use of the module will cost you just $139.00
No more manual intervention! Our module helps to deal with producing a list of products having special prices Sale Category PRO. The automation of this process is a quite essential aspect necessary for the improvement of your business. As soon as you have customized the module, it will automatically be able to make manipulations thereby making a lot of workers redundant. For instance, the product can be taken off the sale category upon expiry of the product’s sale. The extension can help add certain products into the sales category if they have a special price which is less than their regular price. Furthermore, it can help include products in the sales category as they go on sale and automatically delete them as soon as the sale ends.
Management of sales listing may be a daunting task for admins. It is quite difficult going through an entire catalog while adding and removing products with a special price to a certain category referred to as “Sale” or other names. Kindly take note that the keyword is “automatically”. The benefits of the automation of your business include the reduction of the human factor and lesser investments in the business. This means that the successful automation of your manipulations is what we strive to help you achieve.
Advertisement of your products making use of a social network is a smart move. During the first quarter of 2018, Facebook recorded about 2.19 billion monthly active users. Now I am not referring to necessarily showing expensive banners, commercial pages or spam images. The technique comes in using friends, relatives, acquaintances and different other types of interpersonal interaction on Facebook. A lot of people seem to trust recommendations more than advertisements. Your customers will share with their friends and subscribers their review about your store. People who come across it will see it not as a form of advertisement but as a friendly tip.
The process of utilizing the Facebook Like Discount takes the following format: a logged in customer click on the "Facebook Like" button. After this, the store redirects him to a Facebook page for the verification of the "Like". As soon as the customer’s Facebook profile is verified, the configured discount is applied and displayed on the shopping cart page. Can you believe that? The entire process goes on without any human intervention form the backend support. This means you can apply this powerful automated tool for the conversion of new customers via a simple discount. I still can’t think of a single store, not in need of this module.
It is quite clear that a lot of customers rely on the experience of other clients while searching for a product. This is the reason why another essential feature for an online business is customers’ feedback.
Asking your customers for the review of a product they purchased or the level of service gotten may seem quite simple. You may even hire personnel to manually complete the task on a daily basis or just simply install our Review Newsletter module once and forget about using employees for such a simple task. We have an intelligent solution for you. Save the working hours of your employees for tasks that are of more importance. Let an automated code deal with this for you.
Some days after the purchase of the goods, the Review Newsletter will ask your client for a review on the purchased goods. The module will also send reminder emails to those customers. This means, if a customer purchases one or more products from your store, the extension will send them an email. A letter will also be sent after the expiration of the prescribed period. In X days, the client is to receive an email calling his/her attention to a review for the ordered newsletter. Furthermore, if the client has other orders before the last one, the email will contain such products in the email. On a final note, as soon as the customer decides to review the purchased goods via the link in the email, he will be provided with a list of all his purchased goods. This can allow the client quickly leave reviews for the products without leaving the page. There is no need for authorization due to the fact that the link has a unique token.
The last on the list of our automated helpers is the Bulk Prices Updater module. This is essential due to the amount of time required to alter different prices during discounts. This module is designed for fast and precise price management. It can update the prices of thousands of products in quite easy steps.
It simply means you save a lot of unnecessary investments of your employees’ time. For the update of prices making use of the Bulk Prices Update requires lesser workers and efforts. More information on the advantages of this module can be found here: Magento 2 Bulk Price Updater: Advantages and usage.
Making use of the visualization method, you will easily create specific goals and the techniques to achieve them. Practice the method twice a day for just about 10-15 minutes for improved outcomes. Develop yourself and your business because are good enough to do so! Good luck!
