How to Leverage Your Shopify Data to Retain and Engage Your Customers

Upon new user sign-up or newsletter subscription, send a welcome email to users and guide them on how to navigate your website or with popular products to browse. Following is an example of a successful user sign-up for an E-Commerce beauty and wellness website.
Nudge users to complete their purchase
Remind users of products in their cart and nudge them with a limited period offer to continue purchase. Utilize personalization elements such as product name, product price, and more to enhance the user experience within the communication and boost conversions. Following is an example of an E-Commerce clothing website.
