First, you need to collect and create a list of emails, we have apps that can help with email capture:

Privy

Popups, Promos & Banners

Are some of the more popular ones. You can offer discounts among other things to entice the customer to sign up. Make it worthwhile for the customer giving you their email.

And you can use apps like https://apps.shopify.com/mailchimp to send out email marketing campaigns.

Hi Rakpa, 

Stephanie here from Shopify :)

There are apps you can use for banners such as Powr Banner Slider.

Certain themes also come with a built in banner where you can simply add text within your theme editor. 

A few themes that include this feature are Icon, Debut and Venture. You can check out our theme store here!

Hope this helps :) If you have any other questions, you can always reach out to our support! We're available 24/7 via live chat, by phone and email. 

Happy selling!

Hi Rakpa,

Josh here from SmartrMail, seems like the Shopify guru's gave you some great resources already. But I'll share some tips for your popups and signup forms from our top stores too:

  • Move your signup form to a more visible area of your site
  • Use a Pop up instead of a sign up form
  • Offer a 10%+ discount for first time purchasers in exchange for an email address
  • Include a free gift in first time purchases
  • Offer free shipping for first time purchasers
  • Rethink your copy, make customers feel like they're joining an exclusive club
  • Make it clear what emails and offers your customers will receive in the future

Good luck!!!

Create an incentive via a popup or banner so people will sign up.  Offer them a discount or weekly sales or something like that.  I highly recommend Get Social .  They advertise as a social media platform.  However they have popups and a cool header popdown email sign up option!  It is extremely easy to use.   Sign up and check out the free version!  If you like the options, it is super cheap but highly awesome.  The link I gave you gives you 50% off your first 3 months. I highly recommend Get Social
