Shopify. How to manage featured and special products

As you can see, you can easily add a new product and pace it right where you expect it to be. The instruction shows how you can create the “special” product section. Overall, this platform is super easy and user-friendly, so you don’t need to be tech-savvy to manage your online store.

Shopify provides you with all the necessary tools, but you need to pay attention to your web page and make it look attractive. Your page design influences customers’ behavior. If your website looks modern and it works perfectly (it loads all the elements fast and a visitor can find the product or the service they need) – the number of potential clients will increase. However, your website may become difficult to manage, especially if you have many plugins and add-ons installed.

You also may consider getting a free template and test it. There are many of them – for all kinds of products. Let’s say you have an online store and you sell clothing – please consider getting an amazing template like Apparelix or Minimal. You can download a demo version. Of course, it doesn’t have all the features that a full version has, but you still can see how it works and if it’s right what your online store needs. Our templates are super flexible and you can customize them easily – you can add various elements or remove something. These templates are optimized so all the elements will be loaded fast (it helps to retain visitors, which is extremely important for an online store). The idea is simple – download a demo version and test it. If you liked it – buy the full version will all the additional features.
