9 WooCommerce Tasks You Should Outsource

Jun 16, 2024 | WooCommerce

WooCommerce tasks can be overwhelming and time-consuming when running an online store, especially with a comprehensive platform like WooCommerce. To focus on scaling your business and ensuring customer satisfaction, outsourcing specific tasks to a digital agency can be a game-changer.

Here are 9 WooCommerce tasks you should consider outsourcing:

1. Website Design

Website design sets the stage for visitors to your WooCommerce store. Imagine walking into a supermarket where the aisles are jumbled and there’s no signage to guide you. Frustrating, right? That’s why good website design is crucial. UI/UX experts can craft a visually appealing, intuitive layout that makes shoppers feel right at home, finding what they need without any hassle.

Not everyone is a design wizard, and that’s okay. While you might know your products better than anyone else, a digital agency can help showcase them in the best light possible. They understand the nuances of design, like ensuring the “Add to Cart” button isn’t hidden in some weird corner. By outsourcing this task, you save time and ensure your website looks professional, clean, and inviting.

2. Theme Customization

So you found a theme that’s almost perfect, “almost” being the keyword here. Just like how you wouldn’t wear a suit two sizes too big, your WooCommerce store needs a theme that fits just right. Outsourcing theme customization can turn a good theme into a perfect one, tailored to your brand’s unique voice and needs.

Let’s say you’re selling artisanal candles and your theme screams tech gadgets. That’s a mismatch! For example, we align the visuals and functionality of the theme with your brand’s identity, ensuring everything from font choices to color schemes speaks directly to your target audience. No more cookie-cutter websites, just a unique online store that feels like an extension of your brand.

3. Plugin Development

Ever wish there was a magic button that did exactly what you needed on your WooCommerce store? That’s where custom plugin development comes into play. Think of plugins as those nifty multi-tools that have everything from a bottle opener to a screwdriver. They add functionality and features tailored specifically to your needs.

However, creating these plugins involves more than just waving a wand, or clicking around for that matter. It’s about coding expertise and knowing how different elements of WooCommerce play together. By outsourcing, you get custom plugins that meet your unique requirements without having to dive head-first into lines of code. This way, you get to focus on running your business while still getting the functionalities you dream of!

4. Product Management

Product management and tasks like data entry might sound mundane, but it’s actually super important for your WooCommerce store. Imagine trying to buy something online and the product description is empty or full of typos, you’re going to run away!

Outsourcing this task to an expert team ensures that each product is presented delicately with accurate descriptions, prices, and images. No more late-night data entry marathons; let the pros handle it while you focus on running your business.

Think of it like hiring a chef for your restaurant. You could cook the meals yourself, but a professional chef knows how to make everything just right. By outsourcing product data entry, you’ll be saving time and avoiding costly mistakes, ultimately serving up a polished, user-friendly online store that keeps customers coming back for more.

5. SEO Optimization

SEO optimization might sound like a buzzword, but it’s basically the art of getting your website noticed on Google without paying for ads. If your WooCommerce store isn’t properly optimized, you could be missing out on tons of potential customers who are searching for what you offer.

By outsourcing SEO tasks, you’re handing the keys over to experts who know exactly what buttons to push to get you ranked higher. SEO can be complex and requires ongoing effort, but experts keep your store optimized for search engines, manage content marketing strategies, and run targeted ad campaigns to attract your ideal customers.

They’ll stay updated on the latest SEO trends and algorithm changes to keep your store visible and relevant.

6. Performance Optimization

Ever clicked on a website and waited… and waited… and then just hit the back button? Yeah, that website lost a potential customer, you! Speed optimization is like giving your WooCommerce store an energy drink; it keeps everything running smoothly and quickly.

By outsourcing this task, you don’t have to figure out why your site’s lagging or how to fix it. Just leave it to the experts to turbocharge your store’s loading times.

Site speed and performance significantly impact user experience and conversion rates. Digital agencies conduct comprehensive audits to identify bottlenecks and implement solutions like caching, image optimization, and database optimization to ensure your WooCommerce store runs smoothly and swiftly.

7. Email Marketing Setup

Imagine you’re throwing a party but nobody shows up because they didn’t get the invite. That’s what happens when you don’t have a solid email marketing setup. It’s like having a direct line to your customer’s inbox, where you can tell them all the great things happening in your store. From announcing sales to introducing new products, email marketing is like that friendly reminder your customers need.

But setting it up can be tricky and time-consuming. That’s where outsourcing comes in handy. Talented email marketers can help you design appealing templates, segment your customer list, and set up automated campaigns. This way, you ensure that your emails are not just sent but also read and acted upon. You’ll be building a relationship with your customers without lifting a finger!

8. Customer Support Integration

Picture this: It’s 11 PM, a customer has a question about their order, and you’re quite comfortably in your pajamas, binge-watching your favorite show.

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone else handled that for you?

Customer support integration ensures that queries are answered promptly and efficiently, keeping your customers happy without you having to sacrifice your downtime.

Outsourcing this task means getting professionals who know the ins and outs of customer service. They can integrate live chat systems, automate responses for common questions, and even set up a ticketing system to manage more complex issues. You get to maintain a high level of customer satisfaction while keeping your sanity intact, a win-win situation.

9. Multilingual Site Setup

Let’s say your products have international appeal, people from all over the world want what you’re selling. The problem? Your website is only in English. Setting up a multilingual site can open doors to new markets and boost your sales globally.

It’s like having a storefront that speaks every language, making every potential customer feel right at home.

But translating your site is more than just running it through Google Translate (please don’t do that!). We utilize AI-powered translation tools that reflect cultural nuances and context, and if your budget allows, we’ll get professional translators on-board for the job.

You can rest while the experts handle everything from setting up the language switcher to optimizing SEO in different languages. Suddenly, the world becomes your marketplace!
