  • Thematic CTAs: Flow Yoga uses thematic CTAs like “find your flow”, to add an extra dash of quirkiness to an otherwise purely functional webpage element.
  • Good tagging: instead of using generic tags such as “yoga” or “wellness” for their content, the blog opts for tonally more appropriate ones like “non-attachment”, “myofascial release”, or “abundance”.

What we can learn from Shopify blog examples 

The key takeaway from these examples is that fundamentals matter. You don’t need special skills or advanced strategies to run a successful Shopify blog. So Let’s summarise everything we’ve learned.

Here are 5 essential takeaways for Shopify blogging…

1. Products

Products are the backbone of your Shopify content. Write about them often, and embed them into your posts where possible. This makes it easy for customers to seamlessly switch from browsing to buying once they’re ready.

2. Visuals

Visuals are essential for keeping your blog posts lively and engaging. They are more effective at capturing viewers' attention than text. Use them throughout your blog as feature images, product images, diagrams, and everything else.

3. CTAs

CTAs are the linchpin that makes it all work. Tactical use of CTAs within your content is essential for actually getting customers to buy something. Try to be creative with your CTAs - use context-appropriate naming, make them stand out by colouring them something vivid like red or orange.

4. UX

Designing your blog with user experience in mind is essential for making your blog ‘click’ with customers. To this end, make sure your blog is functional, visually distinct, fast to load, easy to navigate, and thematically consistent. 

5. Content

Your blog content serves two important purposes - to nudge customers to convert and to help search engines divert traffic to your Shopify store. As you can see from the examples, your content should be divided into sections via headings, it should contain relevant SEO keywords, and should provide value to customers.
