Discover how Blog for Magento 2 advances your SEO while simplifying workflows across departments

Advanced SEO practice is a must to run a successful Magento 2 blog – a content pool meant not only to entertain customers but to increase the visibility of the store on the web.

Start a blog or import it to your Magento 2 store from WordPress and tweak the many configuration options that will help your content attract as much organic traffic as possible.

Top 3 Cross-Selling Scenarios in Magento 2 eCommerce

Learn from the use cases of Aheadworks Add Free Product To Cart extension for Magento 2 to effectively convert advanced cross-selling scenarios.

Magento 2 Cross-Selling Scenarios - Use Cases of Add Free Products to Cart extension

The Add Free Product to Cart extension by Aheadworks facilitates powerful cross-selling scenarios for Magento 2 stores. It helps online merchants build rule-governed promos which suggest customers free or discounted products in response to their topping-up the Cart. Such scenarios are meant to increase both customer retention and average order value. It is time we show some real-life use-cases of Add Free Product to Cart and expand on the scenarios in use by the extension, namely:

  • Buy X Get Y
  • Spend $X get Y
  • Coupon

Use Case 1: Buy X Get Y

We want to be able to do the following:

  • offer customers the Y Product(s) with a discount should the X Product(s) be added to Cart
  • decide how often the scenario is to respond: first, every or every Nth time the condition is met
  • condition scenarios against the multiple attributes of the X Product(s)
  • condition scenarios against X Products subselection

Solution

Although part of the native Magento 2 Cart Price Rules, the Buy X Get Y cross-selling scenario receives further functionality in Aheadworks M2 Add Free Product to Cart. The extension allows creating explicit rules for the promo. This involves conditioning the scenario against the many product attributes and setting the frequency of response to the condition. Merchants are able to select the Y Product(s) and indicate how many of them customers can add to Cart within one offer. Moreover, the extension enforces this scenario with advanced configuration of the promo look. This is essential to make a Buy X Get Y offer clear, attractive and informative – customer-centered, in fact.

How to Import and Export Magento 2 Data: a B2B Solution from FireBear

FireBear to spur further B2B engagement into eCommerce with the Improved Import and Export extension for Magento 2 data channeling.

Magento 2 Import Export

Dozens of articles describe how the B2B segment is taking over the e-commerce market. Some of the reviewers of the matter are positive about the changes. Others are in a non-stop search of ways to deal with the reformation. For both types, the fact is clear ‒ the situation is not a momentary process, but the result of the steady development of the supply-and-demand relations.

The team at FireBear find it natural. B2B commerce promises a definitive growth in business performance while an increase in service quality leads to a substantial revenue boost. The prospects are tempting no matter the cost; however, the ignorant use of B2B strategies can seriously drop the rate of the enterprise success.

The B2B peculiarities require a sizable amount of investments and a range of support tools. Speaking about Magento 2, it still has no actual means to sustain a B2B enterprise on all the levels. One can’t do such a business without third-party helpers. So is Magento 2 B2B worth considering?

How Much Support Does a Customer Support Team Need?

Aheadworks experts to reveal the secrets of their top-notch customer support. Come and meet the team, in an up-front talk on their job-role needs and demands. 

How Much Support Does a Support Team Need

Customer-facing roles require high stamina and resilience, even when you worship and admire your job. In a regular workday, a customer support team stretch their emotional intelligence, continuously engage in creative problem-solving, sprint for response times, collect customer feedback, analyse gargantuan volumes of information and write sharp. Awesome people are those, who help! 

Though, let’s face it, these jobs can be exhausting. The expectation for customer support fellas to be relentlessly cheery is dangerous. There is a lot of care a customer support team need too. Just think about:

  • Self-care;
  • Continuous learning;
  • Interpersonal communication;
  • Team care.

Let’s talk to experts, the highly acclaimed Customer Support team from Aheadworks. Let’s see what they say.
