All major e-commerce sites have their personalized newsletter. You should have an efficient and attractive newsletter for your site with good graphic and text content. This will immediately make your customer click on your site and newsletters will remind them personally to check out your latest collection and may lead to a conversion. MailChimp is an effective tool for mailing newsletters for Magento ecommerce website. Zendesk and Gorgias are efficient mailing tools.

3) Live Interaction with customers:
Most of the people who shop online, lead a busy life and don’t have time to resolve glitches faced. Thus, they will leave your site if it contains any kind of error. You should have an efficient system of live interaction, a chat tool on your site, that the customer can use to get help. Velaro, Website Alive, Kayako Fusion, LiveHelpNow and Pure Chat are some of the chat tools available for Magento ecommerce sites and other sites.

4) Activity Stream (Only for Magento ecommerce):
It is a real time tool which is based on performance tracking. By viewing the real time activity of the customer, you can track their behaviour. If they are leaving the site, you can instantly offer them a discount or give some incentive to retain them. Thus, real time tool can be a big plus. Clicky, Userlook, Woopra, Luckyorange are some other tools.

5) Universal Product Codes:
Ecommerce had a great efficiency increase due to UPC. This system is prevalent in America, Europe and Australia. UPC are the 12 digit numbers found below the barcode on the product. Almost all ecommerce stores can generate all the information on their stock and the particular product. This saves a huge amount of time by simply scanning the code and getting the description content instead of manually typing it.

6) Tools for Team Communication and Task Management:
Trello and Mindmeister are excellent Project Management tools that allow you to plan your goals, create lists and brainstorm for ideas. Slack is the most used and a smarter Team communication tool. It can save a lot of time spent by employees on emailing each other. It is also very easy to use compared to traditional emails. Asana (by Facebook Co-Founder Dustin Moskovitz) is also a very good workflow and collaboration tool allowing to manage all the team tasks.

7) Bitly:
Bitly is a magnificent tool for broadcasting content on various Social Platforms. It offers shortened bitlinks that can be easily monitored. Bitly UI allows you to track how your bitlinks are performing on the social media and also lets you make notes on them.
