Apps for Marketing and Social Proof

1. Omnisend

Okay, this may seem biased, but honestly—we believe Omnisend’s marketing automation platform is the #1 best app you can get for your ecommerce store.

Perhaps it’s because we’re the #1-rated email marketing platform on the Shopify App Store, or that we’re seriously focused on omnichannel marketing automation.

Nonetheless, marketing automation should be your #1 priority. With powerful, actionable data and personalizaton, you can reach more customers in smarter ways on more channels.

It’s perfect for ecommerce marketers that are ready to graduate from their generic email marketing tools.
