Shopify Tools: The Top 5 Tools for Your Online Store


Oberlo merchants have access to a wide range of Shopify tools to help them build better, more profitable stores. But these five tools are downright powerful. Hi everybody, it’s Jessica from Oberlo. Today we’re recommending 5 Shopify tools
that we think are indispensable for Shopify entrepreneurs. If you’re ready to power up your store,
you’ll want to watch all the way to the end. Alright, let’s dive in and start with our
first essential Shopify tool: 5. BURST Banners, ads, product descriptions, social
media – you’re going to need pictures for all of these things. And that’s why you need to know about Burst. Burst offers free, beautiful stock photography,
no strings attached. You can use Burst photos without worrying
about copyright infringement, and you’re never obligated to give the original photographer
credit. Best of all, Burst’s gallery of photos is
curated with the needs of ecommerce entrepreneurs in mind. You’ll find specific images for niche products
like cell phone cases, watches, and makeup brushes. If you can sell it online, then Burst probably
has a photo of it. Burst updates its image bank with new material
at least twice a week – so if you’ve landed on the next fidget spinner, Burst is going
to be your best chance of finding appropriate pictures for your store. There is a link to a video on how to use Burst
in the description below, so click that to find out more about using this Shopify tool 4. KIT Batman’s sidekick is Robin. Hans Solo’s sidekick is Chewbacca. And the Shopify merchant’s sidekick is Kit. Kit is a smart marketing automation tool that
can send emails, create ads, post on social media, send you reminders, keep you company
on Valentine’s Day, and much more Kit acts as a marketing assistant. No really. You chat with Kit online, just as you would
with a real marketing assistant. Cool, huh? One last thing about Kit: Because it’s owned
by Shopify, it integrates into your store seamlessly. That means no headaches or lengthy set-up
processes. Just install Kit to get started. 3. Oberlo Oberlo is a marketplace that makes it easy
to find awesome products to sell online. With Oberlo you can access a huge variety
of different products with just a few clicks. Whether it’s fashion, electronics, toys,
beauty, or the next trending product – Oberlo makes it easy for you to find products from
suppliers all over the world and instantly add them to your own online store. Once you’ve made a sale your supplier will
ship the products from their warehouse straight to your customer’s doorstep – you’ll
never need to worry about storing, packaging, or shipping your products. What’s more, you can adjust the settings
so that your product inventory and pricing auto-updates when your supplier makes changes. Your product descriptions and images can also
be edited to match your store’s branding. Oberlo has great shipping options too: for
instance, you can choose to ship from a warehouse in the U.S., or you can use ePacket to ship
products from China as soon as possible. To get started with Oberlo, just click the
link in the description. By the way, that’s where we’ll put links
to all of the Shopify tools we mention in this video. Make sure to check out the description at
the end of the video–it’s full of useful resources. A moment ago I mentioned branding. That brings me to our second to last Shopify
tool recommendation… 2. Hatchful Using Hatchful is like hiring a professional
to design your logo. The only difference between Hatchful and a
professional designer is that Hatchful is free–and it doesn’t have as many tattoos. With this Shopify tool you can create a beautiful
logo for your online business in a matter of seconds – saving you time, money, and
the headache of trying to design a beautiful logo yourself. Hatchful has eye-catching and memorable logos
for a range of niches, from fashion to tech – and in a range of styles, from simple
to more artistic varieties. With Hatchful, you can find exactly what you’re
looking for in a logo without breaking the bank. If you do have room in your branding budget
for a logo, you can purchase one of their premium designs. Speaking of budgets, our last tool is going
to help you keep your books in order. 1. Finance Calculators Shopify offers three finance calculators for
a range of monetary needs, but they all help you stay on top of your dollars and cents. The free CPM calculator is probably our favorite
one, because you can use it to determine the cost of your ad campaigns. Simply enter the total campaign cost and ad
impressions and it’ll tell you what your cost per thousand impressions is. This means you’ll never have to count on
your fingers and toes again! Before we sign off, remember to check out
the description below. There’s a link to a blog post that includes
more details on these five tools, plus four more tools you should be aware of. On top of that, we link to two more financial
calculators in case one awesome math hack isn’t enough for you. So what do you think? Did I mention your favourite Shopify tool? Do you have a good tip for one of the ones
I have mentioned? Let me know in the comments, I love reading
them and will get back to you. If you want more easy to digest tips and tricks

  1. Thanks for the tips ! I've been trying to advertise my website on Bing Shopping Ads. No matter what keywords or product descriptions I use, there appears to be a monopoly on ad space from the top two advertisers in my nitche. My product ads do not show, but the big guy's ads are all over the place. I'm at a loss.
