How can product reviews help your site? There are a lot of ways!

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.

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.

What to do When a Magento® Promotional Coupon Isn’t Working

What to do When a Magento® Promotional Coupon Isn’t Working

A couple of months ago I was running a promotional campaign for one of my clients that has a Magento® CE based online store. They started a promotion to get customers back to their store, giving a 15% off coupon to loyal customers who hadn’t shopped for a while in their store.

They asked me to set up a Magento promotional coupon code that can only be used by registered users who belong to the specific customer group (loyal customers), and be able to limit its use to one time only.
