Not many words sound as glorious to a startup small business owner than "free" or "boost sales". When you combine the two words in the same sentence you get more attention than a cupcake in an elementary school cafeteria!
Here are three FREE Shopify Apps that can help boost your sales and satisfy your customer service sweet tooth! (Spoiler alert: Pun Intended)
Sweet Tooth is a Loyalty Rewards program app designed to reward your customers for frequent purchases. With an easy to use interface and loads of features, Sweet Tooth takes Customer Loyalty to the next level.

Give shoppers points for the most important thing: making a purchase. Customers can spend their points on a $ discount, % discount, free shipping, or store gift cards, the choice is yours.
Turn your existing customers into powerful marketers that generate sales. Give points for referring friends, and even give the friend a percentage off as an extra incentive.
- Account Registrations
Eliminate guest checkouts and gain valuable email addresses by rewarding points for registering an account.
- Social Shares
Give your customers points if they share your store with their network via Twitter and Facebook.
- Social Follows
A strong social following is a great way to build up brand awareness and sales. With Sweet Tooth you can give points to shoppers who follow you on Twitter or Instagram, as well as liking on Facebook page.
- Give Bonus Points on Birthdays
Show your customers you care by giving them a present on their birthday.
Sweet Tooth Rewards App has a free version and a paid version. Although the subscription version has many more advanced options, the free version has enough to boost your business and create a very respectable Customer Loyalty Program!
