Shopify Marketing Agency Herts


Why be a Shopify Marketing Agency?

It looks like Shopify will be rebranding to just ‘Shop.’ Why? So, they can own the term ‘shop.’ A mite ambitious but it is the number one turnkey solution for ecommerce.

In short Shopify is really good at what it does.

It is possible to have a store up and running in a week if not less. Everything you need is built in.


There’s an App for That

Shopify is endlessly adaptable. The Shopify marketplace is jam packed with apps that add functionality from delivery options to Instagram feeds and SEO.

Search Engine Optimisation

SEO Manager is one app you’re going to need. It’s a few dollars per month but is saves time and allows you to do all the nitty gritty stuff. We’ve found their support excellent.


Marketing with a Shopify Store

It’s not very different from any other platform if you get the basics right like the naming conventions of products eg keywords within your product names and URLs.

That’s round one of marketing with Shopify getting the foundations right for Search Engine Optimisation.


Email Integration

Successful businesses will know that you create a hub, that is your website plus your email list and Shopify has all manner of integrations. Since MailChimp and Shopify fell out over data exchanging the big player is Klavyio. Klavyio has endless possibilities by using automation and popups.

Marketing Basics

So, we would recommend using Shopify BUT you have to be aware that although relatively cheap (until you need to expand) and easy to use, you are tied into the platform (that’s their business, fair enough).

There are limitations until you get to Shopify Plus (currently $2,000 pm). The main one is that you can’t do anything in the basket such as adding conversion tools and messaging.


The SOSTAC Marketing Plan

When you’re happy to use Shopify and most likely invested some development cost to customise what do you do?

You invest in a marketing strategy audit and plan.

That’s what we offer to all Shopify businesses and we use the SOSTAC marketing plan model.

Well, it’s not overnight. If you are committed to growing your business online then you have to invest time. A thorough audit of your online business is the starting point. After this research it is a question of creating proritised actions.

You may see results in a month, if you have the budget and the traffic to your website. It could take three months to a year. The best way of seeing digital growth is as a virtuous cycle. That is build digital growth into your business.

You have to spend money to make money. It’s true of all we do in marketing. Starting with an audit can start at the best part of a thousand pounds, but you stand to gain big time. T

A particular project can be done on a fixed fee over several months. It also depends on the people you have in your business that can help. So, you are talking about using an agency for a set number of hours per month. See our Pricing Packages for hourly rates.

An idea of what is entailed can be found on our blog post ‘Website Conversion Optimisation on a Budget'.

Method. Creative thought. Consistency. Measurement and a willingness to make a difference are also up there but in the main it’s how you, as a client, get on with the agency. It’s a collaborative business and a creative one. You’ll most likely have to make changes to how you see your business digitally.

What do you want to achieve? Is it principally revenue? We’ve seen a 20% increase in sales from a new website build. Is it influence? We’ve had a client grow their email list from a few hundred to 30,000 in 18 months. Is it branding and creating a community, your tribe? We’ve had a hand in building social following to tens of thousands.



Why I Love Hertfordshire

Why do we make a big thing about Hertfordshire? Because we love being in this wonderful county. Don’t get me wrong there’s lots of lovely places in the UK but Hertfordshire is where I was born, Kings Langley and where I went to school, Berkhamsted. I’ve lived in Welwyn Garden City for a long time.

St Albans is just up the road and a place to browse for food and coffee. Watford is somewhere I spent a lot of time growing up, visiting the shopping centre and especially John Lewis. My mum used to treat me to a Knickerbocker Glory.

I’ve worked all over including Hemel Hempstead, Watford (again) and Stevenage. I go to a lot of networking groups. I especially like the vibe in Harpenden and Hertford.

My daughter goes to school in Hatfield and I do enjoy acting at The Barn Welwyn Garden City.
