WooCommerce Integration For Benchmark Email
Do you own an eCommerce store? Did you set up the store using WooCommerce?
If you answered yes to both questions, then this integration is for you.
We know that email marketing remains one of the most powerful marketing strategies for an eCommerce company in this present age. But that is only if you have the right resources. Generating engagement and dealing with abandoned carts are just two of the issues you have to sort out to keep your margins high.
We know, email marketing can be frustrating. But it doesn’t have to be.
So here’s what we did.
We created Benchmark Email, an easier way for you to take care of your email marketing campaigns and interact with your customers. With our WooCommerce email marketing integration, you’ll be able to stay in touch with your customers from the moment they submit their information to you.
You'll be able to send abandoned cart emails and create high-quality engagement with your customers. And that’s not all.
Let’s get into the details of why our WooCommerce email marketing integration will be a growth driver for your eCommerce store.
Why Use WooCommerce
These are some of the reasons why you should use WooCommerce, a customizable eCommerce platform, to launch your online store.
In a world where there are lots of premium eCommerce software options available, it is understandable if you feel dubious about one that lets you get started for nothing.
You might be thinking:
“Would I have everything I need to make my store look professional?”
“Would I get the support and resources needed for me to grow my online business?”
The answer to both questions, and most of the ones you might come up with, is yes.
With the free WooCommerce plugin, you’ll be able to set up and design your online business, offer secure payment channels, manage your orders from wherever you are, and so much more.
And if you like extra sophistication for your store, WooCommerce doesn’t leave you hanging.
This customizable eCommerce platform has an extension marketplace where you have access to both free and paid extensions that you can use to add a little more bells and whistles to your store.
All in all, WooCommerce - unlike other options - gives you everything you need (and more) to get started with launching and growing your online business.
If you are a store owner, then you must know how impactful SEO is to your success. You need your store’s website and product to rank high on Google’s search engine result pages if you want to drive traffic
The good news is when you combine WooCommerce with your WordPress site, you’re already making it easy for your customers to locate your store online.
WordPress is an extremely SEO-friendly CMS platform. And because WooCommerce is practically built on it, it automatically makes WooCommerce an SEO-friendly platform.
This advantage already lightens your marketing burden.
It Can Be Used To Sell Anything
Are you looking for a platform that will support you even when you make changes to your business? Maybe you sell physical products now but you know that you are going to add an online course to your store in the future.
As a business owner, you want a platform that gives you the flexibility to pivot any time you feel the need to. And WooCommerce is that platform.
It was practically built for selling. It doesn’t matter if you are selling physical goods or virtual products. Or if you plan on creating a membership site or subscription service. As long as it can be sold online, then WooCommerce is a good option.
One reason why this is so is its massive extension marketplace. You can power up your store with numerous free and paid extensions that will cater to your business needs.
Through the marketplace:
- You have access to 140 payment gateways (PayPal and Stripe are free).
- Free and premium themes that can help you make your store stand out. We’re sure you could find one for your niche.
- Numerous extensions to help you manage your store, and so much more.
It’s not always advisable to follow the crowd. There are times when you need to stand out. But there are also times when it’s difficult to deny the truth in the face of overwhelming evidence.
We’re talking about WooCommerce’s popularity and the trust it has generated in its community.
ECommerce business owners rely on this platform to reach new customers and improve their quality of life. You can do the same, too.
But, there are other reasons why WooCommerce’s popularity is a good thing.
- Finding WooCommerce developers and experts will be easier than most other platforms
- You will find a vibrant community open to helping new business owners get off their feet.
- WooCommerce is open-source. This makes it flexible and scalable, and also compatible with almost any service.
