The success of an ecommerce business relies heavily on the extent of your marketing tactics. Although Magento is one of the most trusted ecommerce platforms, identifying the best tools and resources for your online store can be time-consuming and difficult.
In my previous article, I shared an easy way to design email templates using Templates by Email Monster from Product Hunt – a platform where one can get new and useful products to make ecommerce marketing tasks easy. Similarly, for this post, I did some research on Product Hunt and stumbled upon E-commerce Stack.
E-commerce Stack, built by Gorgias, compiles a list of all the popular and useful tools from the top 10,000+ ecommerce stores. It has a large number of categories and each one of them has a various number of tools.
While all of the categories listed in Ecommerce Stack are useful, I found the following three to be the best:
