One of the most common questions that concern young entrepreneurs in our days, which they often direct to their older and more experienced colleagues is: What would you have done differently if you had to start your business all over again?
Surely, there are many answers to that question, but there is one in particular that seems to be a timeless one and keeps coming back.
It’s been about five months since we first released the all-encompassing CM multi-vendor Marketplace extension for Magento, and our team of expert certified Magento developers has not rested for a minute since!
Rather, they have been busy working to further the extension to new heights, constantly adding new features that improve the user experience on all ends of the equation: The admin panel, the supplier’s dashboard, and finally, the customers.
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.

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.
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.
