If you’re a Shopify user, I bet you’ve already tried out some of its default marketing and promotion tools. So, of course, you must have noticed that while a few of the features are pretty decent, the bulk of its default customer engagement functionalities leave much to be desired.
Call it what you want, but the truth of the matter is, Shopify just doesn’t offer the marketing features you need to properly drive conversions. But, on the bright side, at least the platform is flexible enough to support a wide range of third-party app integrations.

Well, to make the most out of dropshipping, you need the right tools.
