by Vachel Ladd Digital Marketing Manager

Being a Magento store owner, you often have to face distress as you find it hard to come up with the perfect formula for building an online store in the correct way. The problem is much grave than it seems because an under performing website leads to a dissatisfied customer which clearly leads to a dip in sales. Although, many online store owners opt for Magento consulting services in order to choose the best plan of action, there are many merchants who still are clueless about what works best and what doesn’t. Following are the top 6 tips to make your Magento store ultraproductive -


#1 Latest Version 

It is essential that you run the latest version of Magento because new versions are equipped with bug fixes and performance enhancers. For upgrading a Magento installation, you need to install a Magento file tree for the version you are trying to upgrade to. And then, you can run the installer from the file tree on top of the outdated database. You can switch extensions and themes to the latest version as the database is now upgraded.

 

#2 Data Backup 

Better be safe than sorry. A backup strategy is an indispensable part of a Magento store disaster recovery plan. And therefore, you need to take a back up of your e-commerce store regularly. If it seems a bit tricky, then opt for Magento consulting service providers who will assist you in the back up process.

 

#3 Caching 

There are currently multiple forms of caching which can be implemented with Magento. Also, Magento comes with a built - in module as well. To utilize Caching, just go to “System” → “Cache Management”. Select everything and then under the drop - down menu, select “Enable” and click “Submit”.  


#4 Image Optimization 

More than half of a website’s page is made up of images. Which is why, your e - commerce website might take a little more time to load. In such circumstances, optimizing your product images before uploading them will reduce the download time and in turn, increase the speed of your pages. Thus, always optimize your product images before uploading them.

#5 Fast Web Host

The most important step to take while custom Magento development is to choose a reliable and fast web host so that you are in complete control of your resources.


#6 HTTPS Connection

Hackers are always in a lookout for a loophole in your website. Therefore, to eliminate the possibility of your hacker gaining unethical access yo your website and its data ( like username and password), it is always advised to use an encrypted connection especially for all login pages. You need to set up HTTPS (SSL) with Magento to ensure safety.


With Magento, eCommerce merchants can have access to a plethora of custom options and extra adaptations. This is why custom Magento development has gained massive popularity amongst online merchants.
