We are often asked which WooCommerce plugins are best for growing a WooCommerce store. With all the plugins available out there it can be tricky to decide which is the best one for you.
Some plugins can work for only one thing while others serve multiple purposes. Some of them are free and others require a monthly payment, so which one should you choose?
Not to worry! We’re going to show you the Top 18 WooCommerce Marketing Plugins that we use help to our clients grow and definitely recommend you also give these a try.
What if, in addition to your advertising campaigns, you have a group of people recommending your product directly to your target audience? As you know, influencer marketing is going to continue being a trend through all 2018, and if it is part of your strategy the Affiliate WP plugin might come in handy.
AffiliateWP allows you to manage and track commission sales for your affiliates and influencers such as bloggers, celebrities, industry experts, micro-influencers, etc. It integrates perfectly with your WooCommerce store, allowing you tie purchases back to affiliates. The AffiliateWP plugin is a self-hosted and less expensive alternative to the popular shareasale.com service. Among its features you can find coupon tracking, recurring referrals and setting per-product referral rates which are only some of the perks of this plugin.
Recart has more than 10 special features integrated into a single tool. Including an add to cart pop-up, abandoned cart push notifications, checkout tracking, cross-device cart rebuilding, and track and trigger technology. However, what stands out are their unique Facebook Messenger Marketing features.
For instance, the abandoned cart feature sends automated reminders to the customer’s Messenger inbox. Have in mind that Facebook Messenger has an open rate of 85% and a click rate of more than 50%. On top of this, you’ll be using a direct channel to the customer removing the high competition for attention that happens on any email’s inbox.
With the automated Facebook Messenger campaign feature, you’ll be able to send receipts, coupon codes, and send follow-up messages. As in email marketing, you will need a subscribers list. The advantage of Messenger is that the customer’s email is not needed. By approving a checkbox they’ll get subscribed automatically.
Once you’ve built your subscribers list, you can start a conversation with them. This communication channel can be useful to remind them of your latest sales, new arrivals, and other content. It will be just like email newsletters but with better open rates.

Created by one of the WooCommerce founders, this tool integrates seamlessly with the WooCommerce platform. Conversio is a very simple but powerful marketing automation tool. As everything in life it has its pros and cons. Its simplicity makes it easy to set up and get started with automation campaigns. But it doesn’t allow much customization in template designs and it doesn’t allow custom automation flows.
Conversio offers useful features too. You can create receipts, newsletters, recover abandoned carts, add product recommendations, product reviews and get your customers’ feedback on your online store. This plugin also offers a 30 day free trial where you can try all their Premium Tools for free.
4. Google Product Feed
When users look for a specific product on Google they will find in their search results a product image carousel with the best possible products matches for their search. Allowing them to compare prices, brands and offers in an easier and faster way.
This extension will allow you to easily setup and format your product feed to submit to Google, helping increase your product visibility and boosting your traffic. It is a necessity for anyone running Google Shopping campaigns with AdWords and it is also a required step prior to starting any campaigns.
How to use it? Set up your Google Merchant account, add the required product information, define the category levels for your products and you’ll be ready to go.
