You already know that you should be using WordPress to manage your sites. WordPress offers so many plugins and themes to help you get started right away.
When it comes to running a digital agency, there’s one WordPress plugin that stands above the rest, WooCommerce.
WooCommerce turns your WordPress site into a fully functioning eCommerce store. As a digital agency, you’re not necessarily selling products, but you are selling services which WooCommerce is great at doing also.
There are four WooCommerce extensions that make running a digital agency so much easier:
- Email Follow-Ups
- Stripe Integration
- Sending Quotes
Obviously, being able to charge your clients a monthly maintenance fee is the number one priority. This is the heart and soul of generating cashflow. WooCommerce comes with a great Subscriptions extension that will automatically charge your clients every month.
Email Follow-Ups is another powerful extension. Every month you should remind your client that they will be charged for their monthly maintenance fee before you charge their credit card. Imagine how tedious it would be to manually send out email reminders every month to all your clients. This extension can automate all your emails.
You probably already know how we feel about Stripe. It’s just good to know that WooCommerce integrates seamlessly with your Stripe account. It’s never been easier to start accepting credit cards right from your site.
Combine Stripe, WooCommerce, and a web hosting company that automatically secures your site and you’ve got a recipe for success.
Finally, having the ability to send a quote to a potential client is super convenient. Once you send a client a quote, they can immediately accept it and pay for it. It really streamlines the entire process of landing new clients.
There so many other things that WooCommerce can do for you, like offer coupons and discounts, managing order statuses and refunds if necessary.
If it seems a little overwhelming don’t worry, we’ll show you how to put it all together.
