5 Ways to Avoid Abandoned Carts On Your eCommerce Magento store

If you’re managing an eCommerce store, I bet you’ve seen this scenario happening before:

A customer enters your store- it could be a Magento store or any other eCommerce store online- and starts looking around.

Product reviews are one of the most trusted sources of information for customers, as they originate from people who have actually used the product and are not affiliated with the store. Good product reviews are well known for their power to increase conversion rates and generate sales, as they make both your product, shipping, and customer service far more reliable.

The challenge is getting your customers to leave their product review in the first place. No, this doesn’t mean sending email after email in an effort to annoy the customer into leaving a review. It can be as simple as providing an incentive for customers to leave reviews.

Magento and WordPress Integration – Why Bother?

Magento and WordPress Integration – Why Bother?

A lot of times before you finish developing your Magento store, it just so happens that you are already running a WordPress blog. This means that you actually have an online presence already established when you launch your new store. Having both a store and the blog is successful Magento and WordPress Integration.

Also, after your store is live and selling, you will still want to maintain your WordPress blog. This usually takes you to the point of decision: should I just leave it where it is, or should I integrate it as a blog inside my Magento store? This is not an easy answer, as the right answer as always, is that it depends.
