Hi @Landyy09 , welcome to the community. It would be much better if you let us know what kind of products you're selling. Then we'd know what advice to give.

- Though in my opinion, Email Marketing App is a must-have app. You should start building the email list from the beginning with and nurture the customers.

- A popup app is an effective tool to increase conversion and create a call to action. Especially Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales season is coming. Since you're a beginner, I'd recommend Sales Pop Master - Countdown by Autoketing. It has all of the features that other super popular, highly recommended Popup Apps have. Sales Pop Master - Countdown is unlikely to get advertised so it isn't as popular. However, in my opinion, popularity isn't that important. The features are the same and yet Sales Pop Master - Countdown has more simple and easy to customize for the beginner. 

Hope your Shopify business thrives. Cheers!

Hi @Landyy09 

Nice selections of apps. I can recommend you two more free apps. As a new store its important to protect cart abandonment and make your store a little more interactive so that you can reduce the store exits and get some fast conversions. One app is Wheelify Exit Intent Pop up that will allow you to capture the email ids of the new visitors and trigger a discount spin a sale pop up game to give discount codes to the visitors. The other free app is Sales Pop up - Conversion Pro that will show recent sales notifications to your potential buyers to boost their buying confidence and build social proof. It will also allow you to run a stock countdown timer to create a sense of urgency. I think these two apps will be a valuable addition to your marketing inventory. Good Luck

If you want to chat with customers who are Messenger users, you can use Facebook Chat Box. It will show a chat icon and chat popup on your store. You can chat with them if they contact you first.
Moreover, you can recover cart abandonment by sending message to customers' Messenger or notify when an order is confirmed.

As you have researched well, I would like to add a few more apps to help you manage your store, product management, shipping and fulfillment, finance, etc. Look out for apps like 

  • Ablestar - offers bulk product edit tools with customization and scheduling options.
  • PageFly - to create attractive landing pages and product pages.
  • Instafeed - for Instagram marketing tools.
  • ShipStation - to provide seamless order fulfillment services
  • Track123 - for order tracking and statuses
  • Uppromote - to use influencer or affiliate marketing to promote your products
  • Rivo - to boost your upsell through email pop-ups, discount/rewards pop-ups, etc.
  • Quickbooks - to manage your store finances.

Along with all the above, you would require efficient helpdesk software to streamline your customer support services. I recommend you check out Helplama Helpdesk - for its AI-enabled intelligent ticketing system, omnichannel support features, and more.


P.S I recommend that you take advantage of the 15-day free trial to explore the tool.

Hello Landyy09,


Thanks for reaching out to the community!


Well, there is one app that you shall not miss - SEOKart.


SEOKart is an all-in-one SEO app that can help you optimize your website or online store for the search engine, which best suits the needs of a newbie. Let me list the amazing features of this app:


  • SEO Audit: You can use this feature to carry out an in-depth SEO audit of the website based on 15 SEO factors, which helps in identifying SEO-related issues on the website that are categorized under meta tags, content, image, URL, and broken links. Based on the identified issues, different pages of the website are awarded SEO scores, and you also can benefit from AI-generated suggestions to fix the issues and improve the SEO score of the pages and website.
  • Image Optimizer: This feature helps you to optimize the images on the website by compressing the file size of the images to reduce their loading time, and changing the file format (JPEG or PNG) of the image to suit the requirements of the website. This feature also lets you add a keyword to the images’ file names and alt texts.
  • Bulk Optimizer: With the help of this feature, you can customize a template for different types of pages on the website using diverse labels, like product name, description, URL, SKU, etc. Thereafter, you can enable the option and optimize different pages of the website in bulk.
  • Cruise Control: Similarly, you can use the cruise control option to automate the optimization process for new pages on the website. Once you enable this option, all the newly added pages on the website get optimized automatically. 
  • Rank Tracker: Using this feature, you can track the rank of your website for certain keywords, considering the 4 variables, namely country, language, device, and search engines. You can also consider the keyword suggestions that are AI-generated and best suit the nature of your business. Furthermore, you can also add your three key competitors, and compare the ranking of your website with competitors’.
  • Google Analytics: There is an integration of Google Analytics 4 (GA4) with the app, which allows the app to pull up quantifiable information from GA4 and present it in the form of graphs, charts, and diagrams. These visual presentations of the data make it easier for the users to make comparisons.
  • Rich Snippets: Rich Snippets allow the website to present additional information about the website and its content on the results page, which helps the website stand out on SERP. Using this app, you can add the Product Markup Snippet, FAQs Snippet, and Home Page Snippet for your website. 
  • URL Editor: This feature lets you optimize the URL structure, which includes adding a keyword to the URL and reducing its length (to make it easier for the users to share it). Once edited, the traffic can be redirected to a new URL by implementing 301 Redirects that permanently transfer the value of the old URL to the new one.
  • 404 Fixer: This feature allows the users to assess the website and identify all the broken links on the website. The traffic can then be redirected to the right location using 301 Redirects.
  • Page Speed: With the help of this feature, you can check and track the speed of the website, different pages of the website, and category pages. You can also pull up the historical data, and compare the improvement in the speed of the website after integration of SEOKart with your website. The app offers an add-on service - ‘Page Speed Optimization’, which costs $149 per service, but every month certain eligible stores get this service for free.

Hope it helps!
