12 Shopify Apps That Will Skyrocket Your E-Commerce Sales

There’s good news for e-commerce retailers looking to make a big splash in the marketplace: a report by Forrester predicts US online sales will reach $500 billion by 2020 (having grown five-fold since 2006).
But a healthy marketplace with eager consumers also brings more competition for e-commerce retailers looking to make more sales. Nailing down your product offerings and building a memorable brand are only the first steps in standing out in a crowded marketplace.

You also need an e-commerce store that delivers what your customers want. If you have a Shopify store, there are plenty of reasonably-priced apps that can help you do just that. You can quickly install sales-generating tools and experiment to see what works best for your store.

No matter what your need is – from more customer referrals to live chat functions to enhance customer service – these 12 Shopify apps are designed to increase your sales and help your store thrive.

1. Get More Referrals
90 percent of businesses rely on word-of-mouth referrals to acquire new customers, yet only 5% of businesses actually have a system in place to generate them. You can quickly turn customers into loyal fans by giving them a way to immediately share your products when they purchase, in exchange for a discount on their next order. A referral system allows you to not only acquire new customers (and the lifetime value of a referral customer is 16% higher than a non-referred customer), but also to encourage repeat purchases from your current customers.

The RewardStream Refer a Friend Shopify app offers a fully automated referral program that’s up and running on your site within days. Shop owners can focus on selling and building their brand instead of technical issues, as no support from IT is required, and the Refer a Friend app works well with Shopify stores of all sizes.

Once the app is up and running, customers can refer friends through their favorite social media tools like Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp. Best of all, the software extension readily supports both Shopify Basic and Shopify Plus, and comes with the support of a team of referral marketing experts.

Price: From $0 to $49 a month, plus a % of sales from referrals
