6 Ways To Increase Your Magento Store Revenue Without Spending A Dime

Assuming you’re willing to invest some time, learn, and get your hands dirty then these tips will help you get your store’s revenue trending upwards.  Let’s dive right in.

Install an “Exit Intent” lightbox

For the uninitiated these are the annoying banners that pop up (and sometimes shake) at you when you move your mouse off the top of the screen presumably to close the tab.

The technology that drives these now nearly ubiquitous pop-ups was once limited to companies with huge marketing budgets or large development teams, but now you’ll find them nearly everywhere. There are several free & open source options but for my money the best option is Oui Bounce. Even if you’re not graphically inclined a simple text based popup will give you one last shot at converting a customer before they walk out the door. Continue reading

Memcached Now Available on All Hosting Plans!

Good news, everyone! We’re quite pleased to announce all of our hosting plans now offer memcached support. Even better, it’s 100% free! For those unfamiliar, memcached is a general purpose memory caching system. Its primary benefit is to cache your database requests and reduce (or eliminate) the need to hit your database for common queries. For a number of sites (especially those that run WordPress), inefficient queries are one of the most common causes for site slowdowns. Caching those queries and serving them from memory will show some drastic performance improvements for even your busiest sites.

Everything.

Save the poor databases!
