For example, if an unauthorized seller starts selling your product, changes the price or changes the images, you will be notified immediately. This is truly incredible with so much fraud going on in the Amazon marketplace today.

Tom Baker, FordeBaker
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? Scientificseller.com is my favorite Amazon keyword tool. It’s honest and realistic about what data can be extracted from Amazon. Other vendors import Google search volumes and often aren’t upfront about the fact Amazon doesn’t (yet!) provide keyword volumes. Don’t let bad data confuse your decision making

Chris Spenner, Makaboo Personalized Baby Gifts
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? I really enjoy using the Gravity Forms extension on WooCommerce. It makes it easier for the user and being able to use conditional logic on some products has made it easier for users to purchase with or without personalization.

Jared Ebrahimoff, Lavari Jewelers
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? My favorite tool is Gifts on Order which is actually an app I recently added to my Shopify store. This app automatically adds a free gift to every customer’s order and even allows the customer to choose which gift they want. Making the experience more personal.
Canva is also an extremely powerful tool that can help anyone improve their graphics game. The biggest challenge I see for eCommerce sellers is identifying and then connecting with their target demographic. At Lavari Jewelers, we are currently switching to a new target demographic as our first two attempts have failed and the results have been almost instant! I learned the hard way, that failure is going to happen and that it is going to happen again and again.

Sharrell Kline, Kline & Company LLC
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? I could not coach groups without Zoom. It’s easy to use for a technophobe like me and very affordable. I also couldn’t function without Camtasia for video editing. It makes it easy, and again it’s affordable.
For those just starting out, it’s possible to build a website with WordPress and to find a virtual assistant to help with everything from graphics, logos, websites, and anything else you need on Fiverr.com.
It’s important when you’re starting out to keep things simple and keep costs down. Don’t hire expensive help right out of the gate because you’ll waste a lot of money during the learning curve.

Steven Pope, My Amazon Guy
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? Helium 10 – Best Amazon tool, bar none. It has keyword research, sales data, listing optimization and more.

- Similar Web – Best for website checking on strengths, traffic, for potential partners and competitors.
- Last Pass – You need to track a ton of accounts, passwords, this is a must have for anyone in eCommerce.
- Fresh Books – I run a digital eCommerce Agency called MyAmazonGuy – the ability to collect payment via PayPal for only 50 cents a transaction for high ticket items is amazing. Saves me 3% in fees.
- Shopify might be the best eCommerce platform. It has very easy to install widgets.

It provides you with important reminders to ensure that you have touchpoints with your clients and keeps track of historic action taken with clients which can be used for future business/sales opportunity.
Another very useful tool is ZOHO which is a full-service management system. It provides a full CRM suite of services similar to Pipedrive, but it also has features which are useful for the management of virtual teams which becomes useful when you have your operations outside of your home country with no physical/dedicated space (eg. production team).

Maia Bush, Savvy CEO Consulting
Founder, International Business & eCommerce Strategist
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? As an entrepreneur in eCommerce, your goal should always be to create an unforgettable relationship with your audience through better online experiences and scaling to increase profitability while saving time.
Shopify is one of my favorite eCommerce selling platforms as it sets the seller up for success at the beginning, not as an afterthought. It provides a marketing ecosystem full of apps to add on and the support to help improve your marketing strategies, even as a beginner.
Email marketing is crucial to creating loyal relationships, customer retention. It’s the best sales channel that increases online conversion and drives traffic to your website. Your email marketing landing page should be introduced to your customers on your social media profiles as well as your website. Always provide your customers with a valuable incentive to sign up to your email list. Email converts higher than social media and with the support of sales funnels, you almost double your profits online through email alone.
MailChimp and convert kit are my two favorite tools for email marketing due to the ease of use for the seller, their low cost, and their focus to increase your engagement and profitability.
Social Proof in the form of reviews, testimonials, and sales-pop ups increase online conversion the likeliness of potential customers purchasing.
It’s a marketing psychology strategy that initiates the ‘like, know, and trust’ factor and persuades potential users to purchase.
Your audience wants to make an informed purchasing decision and with the support of seeing previous customers and(or) influencers provide great feedback about your company provides the user with confidence about buying from your brand.
Always display these forms of social proof on your social media accounts and your eCommerce websites.
Proof is a great integration for sales popups on your website. For Shopify users, Beeketing marketing apps support your website’s effort to increase traffic and sales.

Frank Gamboa, Frank Gamboa Consulting
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? Google ads is my favorite tool for most eCommerce products. Why? Because with search advertising, you know exactly what is on the consumer’s mind at the point in time they see your ad.
For example, if someone searches for a product like “vitamin d supplements” on Google you know that person is focused on at least learning about these types of supplements but maybe even buying right then and there.

Thierry Augustin, Sent Agency
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? For online retailers to grow, they need to be able to leverage any and all data they collect. That’s why services like Drip or Klaviyo are so essential to customer acquisition and, even more importantly, retention. They allow you to see how prospects and customers are interacting with your brand across various touch points so that you as a founder or marketing manager can make more informed decisions that yield better results from more personalized marketing and automation.
It’s all about relevance. Customers now more than ever are demanding to be recognized and catered to, especially since there are always a bevy of options to choose from. At Sent, we always recommend taking a deep dive into the data, seeing what the popular products are, what platforms or touch points customers engage with most and then meeting them where they are.
Studying the customer life cycle and knowing things like time between purchases, whether they buy individual products or bundles or if they respond to promotions allows you to know how to tailor your messaging in the future.

Saulo DSC Ferreira, PFSWeb, Inc
Senior Analyst and Magento Developer
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? Right off the top of my head I must say that serious eCommerce businesses should adopt MAGENTO 2 (owned by Adobe) Commerce as their GO-TO-MARKET eCommerce platform which is considered #1 tool with most features out-the-box available and the licensing price tag is at a reach for all companies that consider themselves part of the SMB (small-medium-business) arena.

Amazon Stratagist/ Seller Central Account Manager
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? My job is almost strictly Amazon specific so my tools might not be for everyone but they are great if you are an Amazon seller. I use teikametrics for my advertising ppc management it automates most of the processes like creating negative keywords or harvesting search terms and moving them from a manual campaign to an automatic, or moving a word or phrase from one match type to another. It saves me roughly 10 or more hours a week. I use viral-kauch for marketplace sales and competitor research and for its valuable and accurate keyword research tool.
My best secret weapon is being an active member of peer groups such as the one founded by Ed Rosenburg who is an Amazon seller advocate. He is a lawyer as well as an Amazon service provider and gives his group member real time updates to all things related to Amazon selling such as policy changes or current black hat tactics used by unscrupulous Amazon sellers looking to game the system. Staying compliant while thwarting black hat tactics out of China. The way we approach eCommerce in the USA is drastically different than the way China does business.

Brennan Valeski, Survival Tech Shop
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? I’d say the top E-commerce tools can vary a lot depending on the software someone is using (Shopify, WooCommerece, Magento, etc.) and their specific business needs.
As a general rule of thumb though for E-commerce tools, I would suggest Privy for email collection and Hotjar for conversion rate optimization and analytics as my top two picks.
When speaking of E-commerce software, I’d recommend Shopify for those who want something simple and easy to use with only an E-commerce store. If you need something more, or customized systems for your business, then I would suggest WooCommerce for WordPress.

Nicolas Posada, Boeing Distribution Services Inc eCommerce Manager
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why?
- SEM Rush – To track and evaluate SEO competitors. And to improve internal SEO efforts. The tool works equally as well if you are managing B2B or B2B platforms.
- Stripe – Makes Payment Systems integrations easy to implement, reducing the complexity of PCI compliance and other online payment processes.
- Google Analytics – The free version continues to be every eCommerce professional’s best tool to track Audience, behavior, conversions and many other critical data points. The ease of integrating with AdWords and other Google tools makes it a top in my list (For paid versions, Criteo and Adobe Omniture).
- CRM’s: Both SalesForce (for higher budgets) and ZOHO CRM (Lower budgets) are great tools for managing your customer base, Lead Generation, Adwords, and Social media campaigns as well as Customer service systems (Zendesk, Twilio, Aircall amongst others). The world changes once you can manage your customer purchase funnel.
- I have used many E-commerce/CMS platforms, some are better for more complex implementations (Sitecore, Magento, Oracle ATG or even WordPress/WooCommerce when is well implemented). But I always would recommend Big Commerce or Shopify to any starting or middle size Business. It makes eCommerce easy to implement and maintain as long as you are not planning on customizing the purchase process.

Imran Abdullakutty, Al Hafiz Imran: The Complete Global Business Consultant
What are your favorite tool(s) and software for eCommerce sellers and why? The photo or image which we present to the customers must be realistic and clear. It shouldn’t confuse the customers that the image just for a representation only and the product would be totally different. If we are honest in that, the customer will promote our product through mouth advertisement and social networks.
We must include a relevant and short description about the product in simple sentences. I strongly suggest amazon app for promoting our product. They have a world wide coverage and it is relatively cheap too.
