Running an e-commerce business has many challenges, including trying to stand out from the other 3 million e-commerce businesses. Everyone needs help. Especially those of you trying to run a successful e-commerce business. 


That’s why, this week, we wanted to put together a list of tools that will make your business stand out and thrive.


First, you need to pick the right e-commerce platform for your business. There are a bunch of these platforms with different styles and tools to choose from, so you want to go through them and decide which will work best for you. These platforms come preloaded with tools and services to help you manage your business. Some platforms are Amazon, Shopify, BigCommerce, Wix Stores, etc.


Next, having a digital payment processing system can be beneficial to your business. This is important because you can convert more business by making your products purchasable on your website. Good thing these tools are easy to use! Examples of these tools are PayPal and Stripe.


Another important tool is a social media management tool. Any successful business will have a strong social media presence. Using these tools will allow you to automate posts so you don’t need to worry about constantly being active. These platforms are great for helping organize your content and automate posts based on your editorial needs.This will free up your time to work on other parts of your business. HootSuite and Buffer are good social media management platforms. 

Finally, customer relationship management (CRM) software is the most important thing for your e-commerce business. Even if your website and business aesthetic are perfect, nothing matters if you don’t have a strong relationship with your customers. Luckily, there are easy-to-use CRM tools that concentrate on creating the best customer experience on your website while tracking those experiences through an extremely intuitive interface. Zendesk is one of the best CRM tools available. 


We hope this blog was useful and that you will use these tools to help your business!
