WooCommerce continues to grow steadily with impressive download numbers every single month and despite newcomers to the space, like iThemes’ Exchange, I don’t see it slowing down a single bit, especially as other companies get on the WooThemes choo choo train.
For example, let’s take a look at Yotpo and what they’ve done with their Yotpo Social Reviews service.
Social Reviews aims to help you generate more reviews on your products and services so that you can get increased sales and to build your community. It’s a neat little feature that may have some serious impact to your bottom-line.
Recently they have launched a WooCommerce extension that will allow WooCommerce sites to take full advantage of their powerful system. Justin Butlion, their marketing manager, shared this with me about why he’s excited to get into the WordPress mix:
The reason this is exciting for us is that it obviously opens up a large new market to us, and from the WooCommerce merchants end, they can now generate tons of product reviews like their fellow merchants who are using any of the other 10 platforms that we support.
Neat. So what does the plugin do for you and your site? Well, for starters it’s a free plug and play social reviews plugin and service for online store owners. Yotpo helps store owners generate a ton of reviews of their products and provides unique social features to help them leverage their reviews to drive an increase in traffic and sales.
You can get a good idea via their overview video as well:
Butlion shared with me that Yotpo currently serves over 11k stores across 10 different platforms.
This might be something worth trying if you have a WooCommerce-powered site that could add that social layer that you’ve been wanting (and missing out on).
