Top Ten Tools For Managing Your Ecommerce Store
No Brainer EcommerceVery little maintenance required
I’m a WordPress expert but I use Shopify for my ecommerce store. Pro Tip: If you want a premium theme, choose a company with great support and an updater app like Pixel Union.
Backup Every Day!Better to have a backup and not need it than to need it and not have it.
My Favorite Shopify ThemeThemes for start-ups, large catalogs, brands with a story and more
I have used Pixel Union’s Empire Theme for several years. It just keeps getting better. Pro Tip: When it is time to update your theme (due to new features), get the Updater app. It will make the update process much easier especially if you have made customizations.
Need a Membership Site?The premier membership software with loads of features
Have You Been Hacked?I personally know Regina and she will clean your site!
Stay Safe TravelingSelling online means you can work from anywhere, but...
Hide My Ass
The great thing about having an online business is that you can work from the beach, a cruise ship, a ski lodge or anywhere. But, you must have a secure connection or risk having a skimmer steal your credentials. I’ve used HMA (Hide My Ass) for years. Pro Tip: Load the software on all your devices. There’s no extra charge to stay safe on mobile.
Analytics You Can UnderstandIs Google Analytics too overwhelming?
Google Analytics is the gold standard of website tracking but those reports are too much. Clicky gives you succinct numbers right to your email box. You can also watch visitors in real time. Use it for any website including Shopify. Pro Tip: you can get a free account but upgrade to Pro for lots of goodies.
