top 10 magento extensions

Customer experience is the first and foremost goal for every business that sells online. Simplifying the purchase process is a modern rule – if you don’t make it, you wouldn’t succeed. The same rule applies to online shops. Make it unique, easy and attractive.

Unique – because your online store has to be different. Custom components will make the shop recognizable and user-friendly. Every effort in business is worth trying, especially when it comes to proven results. Pre-designed templates and cheap solutions won’t cover the constantly increasing customer demands.

Easy – navigation is something that you must provide to your site’s visitors. Like Google Maps or GPS, it helps to reach the goal. One button click or a clear & easy menu navigation is more likely to result in purchase. On the other hand, confusing category distribution and so many unnecessary steps before the actual purchase are deadly mistakes. After that, customers will no longer visit your shop.

Attractive – a good look is enough to say “sold out”. Every webshop is more a visual presentation than any other. Good design sells better than words and product description. High-quality product images, easy to view, Pin or add to cart, will only increase the number of total purchases per product or category. Just like custom components, unique design attracts your visitors and new customers very fast.

Besides unique, easy and attractive look & feel, every good webshop needs various extensions. Magento extensions are necessary ingredients for an extraordinary visitor’s journey. They are applicable to various store departments including: design, store development, marketing and SEO, sales, site performance, frontend, etc. Extensions are available for both community and enterprise Magento webshops.
