Hi, welcome to Matsay’s Store.
Welcoming visitors to a space is not just an e-commerce idea but a business thing to always give customers a comfortable stay by handing out the first hand of ‘greeting’.
Welcome mats are one way to give your customers a good feeling about your store or website. It’s an easy way to make a very good first impression.
Sometimes your welcome bars can contain offers that will keep your customers and make visitors want to check your store out. Nobody hears there is a freebie to get and does not want to take advantage of it.
How do you create these welcome bars on your store’s website to attract sales?
Creating a welcome bar, promo bar and free shipping bar can be done with Shopify apps that help you create them seamlessly.
There are two Shopify apps we would consider in this article; Storebundle and Free Shipping & Hello Bar.
Storebundle VS Free Shipping & Hello Bar
Storebundle is a Shopify app with which you can make your own welcome mat and have your promo bars rightly placed. Storebundle is not limited to these two features, however.
Creating a welcome mat using Storebundle is quite straightforward and seamless.
Storebundle allows you to create a welcome mat either as a text mat or lead capture mat when you want the customer to take an action.
The Storebundle’s mat takes the full cover of the webpage with an exit button at the top right end. This welcome mat carries the information you want your customers to see and when there is an offer, you can create a lead capture mat to get customers’ email addresses to activate their freebies.
Free Shipping & Hello Bar is a Shopify app that helps you create an offer and welcome bars for your customers.
This app gives you quite a procedure to set up a promo bar by having an initial message, a follow-up message, and a goal achieved message.
The initial message is where you state the conditions and terms for the offer you are giving if the intent of that bar is to create a lead offer.
Storebundle also has a free shipping bar that helps you create and activate free shipping offers.
This app allows you to indicate the terms guiding the free shipping offer and also display a congratulatory message to your customers when they meet the goal to get the free shipping offer.
There is a progress message indicating how far the customer has gone in meeting the set goal
The Free shipping & hello bar app does not limit you to creating free shipping offers alone. You can also create offers for discounts, and welcome your customers to your store using this bar.
When offering a deal with the Hello Bar you need to provide the URL that activates the bonus when the conditions are met.
Storebundle, on the other hand, allows you to have a single app that executes all of your Shopify store’s operations.
When you use one app to accomplish many tasks, you can keep your website performance normal and avoid slowing it down when you have multiple apps loaded.
