After 8 years of running a 7-figure store, I’ve narrowed down the top 5 Shopify apps that have had the most significant impact on my store’s success. In this article, I’ll be sharing my tried-and-tested recommendations to help you achieve similar results and reach your business goals. Get ready to elevate your e-commerce game with these must-have Shopify apps!
1. Frequently bought together by Code Black Belt
Frequently Bought Together is a Shopify app that helps businesses to increase their average order value by offering customers product bundles and recommendations. It allows companies to suggest complementary products that are frequently purchased together, creating a seamless shopping experience for their customers. Don’t underestimate the power of cross-selling to your customers. Anyone whose been reading my previous posts, knows the power of this app. We’ve been using it for just over a year now and have seen amazing results.
For anyone that’s interested to see my previous post about this, see here.
2. Judge Me Product Reviews
Judge.me helps businesses to collect and display customer reviews and ratings. It enables companies to automatically send review requests to customers, and then displays the reviews on their website. Reviews are often overlooked or not prioritized. However, this is a huge mistake. Reviews are a great way to show social proof and generate future sales. We actually get customers reordering through our website from the follow up review emails that Judge Me sends. The price is also really affordable, some other review apps charge an arm and a leg to sync reviews to Google (so they appear in Google Search). However, this is possible with Judge Me’s low $15/month plan. Also Judge Me has one of the best support teams.

3. Smart SEO by Sherpas Design
Smart SEO helps businesses optimize their online store for search engines. It provides a range of tools and features to help you rank higher in Google. With Smart SEO, businesses can easily edit meta tags, URLs, and other elements to ensure they are optimized for specific keywords and phrases. It also provides suggestions for improving website content, as well as ongoing monitoring and reporting on SEO performance. There are a lot of SEO apps on the Shopify marketplace, this is one of my favorites because it does what it says it does and doesn’t cost a fortune! I have seen great results using this app. At only $9.99/month for the pro plan, you won’t find another app that offers this much functionality and features for the price.

4. PushOwl Web Push Notifications
PushOwl is a web push notification platform that helps businesses to reach and engage with their website visitors. It enables companies to send personalized notifications to their subscribers, even when they are not on their website. With Pushowl you can target specific segments of audiences based on their behavior, preferences, and location. I’ve seen great results using this app for cart abandonment and sending out the odd sales campaign. It’s not the cheapest but has a great set of tools and good support.
5. Klaviyo: Email Marketing & SMS
Klaviyo is an email marketing and automation platform that helps businesses to communicate with their customers more effectively. It enables companies to create personalized email campaigns, automated flows, and targeted messages based on customer behavior and preferences. With Klaviyo, businesses can also track their customers’ interactions with their website and products, which allows them to send more relevant and timely messages. We’ve been using Klaviyo for a few years now, although on the pricier side it’s worth every penny!
I’ve been using all five of these apps for a number of years on my 7-figure Shopify store. I’ve been very happy with every single one of them. These are my go-to apps that I automatically install on any new store I open. Adding these 5 essential Shopify apps to your e-commerce business can help you achieve more significant growth and revenue.
