The Shopify platform is a powerful tool for ecommerce entrepreneurs.
But what truly sets Shopify apart from its competition is the extra yards you can go (and the extra revenue and profit you can make) by adding functionality to your store via the vast ‘ecosystem’ of Shopify apps.
Shopify affiliate apps and apps for loyalty and referral programs are amongst the most useful of these, when it comes to growing your customer base.
Below I review the eight best Shopify affiliate apps available – right after I answer a simple question that I get asked repeatedly…
Driving traffic to your store via Google or Facebook ads is getting more expensive; and Instagram marketing usually takes time to generate serious traffic.
A great alternative source of traffic is affiliate marketing. After all, it’s free because other people send traffic to you via their own websites.
Essentially, you set up a team that may include existing customers, partners or even influencers and top bloggers from your industry – and they send their traffic to you.
What do you get? More traffic and more paying customers.
What do they get? Commission every time one of the visitors they send you buys something.
It’s a classic win-win-win for the seller, referrer and buyer. You only need to pay the affiliate if you sell something, so there is really nothing to lose.
But some Shopify store owners are unaware of the possibilities presented by affiliate marketing and others don’t know where to start.
It’s actually a pretty simple process:
Including existing and new clients in this program creates a kind of “virtuous circle”. Loyal customers encourage referrals; and by encouraging them to join your affiliate program, it engages them and secures your existing base, as well as potentially growing it.
Here are eight Shopify affiliate apps that can increase customer loyalty and help you introduce a successful affiliate marketing program in your ecommerce business…
