The reason why people choose to go with Magento development are many such as the fact that is open-source, has loads of plugins/extensions widely available to give you that extra oomph for your online store, has superb functionality, is secure, available in multiple languages/currencies and can easily be customized around your business needs with all that it offers. No matter what your size, choosing to develop your online store in Magento is a decision that you won’t regret if you are serious about your Ecommerce capabilities/presence. Granted, they are many alternative options that are available if you are looking to setup your online store but choosing to develop a Magento-based Ecommerce store is a safe and reliable choice. The Magento CMS has loads of free/paid extensions that are easily available but below, we will discuss the 3 must have Magento extensions that you need to have for your online store based upon our past experience/expertise:

SERP Editor – This extension is a must-have and has been developed by the mgt-commerce team.

Improving your CTR or Click Through Rate is probably the best thing you can do to help improve the conversion rates/increase sales on your website. If you want more conversions which equals more sales, you need the ability to edit/create your meta titles, description and keywords so they are concise, clear and action-oriented. The best part of this is that you can see what a user will see real-time allowing you to edit and action your tag lines according to best practices. Lastly, by developing good titles that a user can see, this will help your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) rankings which is a must in this day and age for your digital marketing efforts.

Today, users purchase products by evaluating the reviews/feedback they see online so why not give them the ability to do this within your online store rather than looking elsewhere which increases the risk of them not coming back to purchase the products or services that you are offering them. If you have good reviews, this will drive more sales to your online store making it a win-win situation for both your customers who get to see them as well as you as an online business owner.
