Hi @ed31

This is Kate from PageFly - Shopify Landing Page Builder App. 

For most Shopify stores, a hybrid approach using both Shopify marketing apps and Google Ads is often the best option. You can benefit from the ease of use and Shopify focus of apps while reaching a wider audience through Google Ads.

Here are some key points for you:

  • Start with Shopify apps: For email marketing, social media posts, and basic SEO, use apps like Klaviyo, Mailchimp, Hootsuite, and SEO Suite.
  • Run targeted Google Ads campaigns: Consider paid search ads for branded keywords and product-specific terms, and display ads for broader reach and retargeting.
  • For analytics, use both Shopify Analytics and Google Analytics. Shopify Analytics provides valuable insights into store performance, while Google Analytics gives you a broader view of user behavior across platforms.

Hope this helps!

Hi @ed31 


For marketing, you can try these apps besides running Google ads: ReConvert (upsell & cross-sell), Smile.io (loyalty program), Tido (live chat) and Avada Email Marketing & SMS.


For analytics, I recommend using TrueProfit alongside Google Analytics. The app will allow you to sync data from your ad channels, shipping platforms and Shopify dashboard to calculate your exact net profit, ROAS, etc. in real time. 


I hope that this helps!

Many store owners find it beneficial to use both Shopify's built-in analytics and Google Analytics in tandem. This way, you can leverage the strengths of each platform to gain a deeper understanding of your store's performance and make informed decisions about your marketing strategies.


Along with this, you can get an even deeper understanding of your store by collecting product specific data such as:

- a products conversion rate at price A

- a products conversion rate at price B


This data is priceless 😉 as you will be able to find your most ideal pricing.

If this interests you, get Crowly! With our free plan you can automate A/B testing pricing and descriptions for your products all while collecting data for each.


Good luck merchant!
