Boost Shopify Sales With an Abandoned Cart Strategy

 If you're a Shopify or Shopify+ brand and you don't have a solid abandoned cart recapture program, chances are you're leaving a lot of money on the table.

If you’re a Shopify or Shopify+ brand and you don’t have a solid abandoned cart recapture program, chances are you’re leaving a lot of money on the table.

It’s estimated that brands on Shopify miss out on around 70% of their potential sales due to shoppers abandoning their carts alone. This represents a massive segment worth targeting. But how do you capture, identify, and bring them back to seal the deal?

Let’s walk through it. 

How to get abandoned cart shoppers back: 

Set up robust email retention and retargeting plans. What is retargeting? It’s making sure the right email goes to the right person at the right time. This is actually the hard part, even though it’s not that difficult. 

It really comes down to a few things: 

  1. The first step is to set up an automated email sequence that’s triggered when someone abandons their cart. There are a number of apps that can help you with this, such as Klaviyo, Omnisend, or Seguno.
  2. Once you have your email sequence set up, the next step is to create compelling copy that will persuade abandoned shoppers to come back and complete their purchase. Offer a discount code or other incentive in your email to sweeten the deal.
  3. Finally, it’s important to track your results so that you can see what’s working and what’s not. Most email platforms offer some sort of analytics that will allow you to see things like open rates, click-through rates, and conversion rates. Make sure to keep an eye on these metrics so that you can optimize your emails for maximum effect.

Okay, that may be a bit oversimplified. Want to know more? We’ve got you covered.
