How to Optimize Shopify Marketing with

The biggest challenge in Shopify Marketing has tripped up marketers for decades. You have to have the right product and then reach the right customers at the right time with the right message. 

It’s harder than it sounds–and it doesn’t sound easy! Even worse: it’s only going to get more difficult. 

Changes by Meta and Apple had significantly diminished the accuracy and reach of Shopify marketing. In 2024, Google is adding two more hurdles. 

First, they’re blocking third-party cookies in Chrome and they’ll be 100% blocked by the end of the year. Second, they’ve implemented much stricter rules around emailing and spam. The new rules include harsher penalties for violating senders. 

In one word: yikes! 

Effective targeting and strong email deliverability are the foundations of any good Shopify flow. Welcome series, abandoned cart emails, winbacks, and upsells are all proven shopify marketing strategies. 

So many Shopify stores rely on these tools to grow. If those flows at risk, their businesses are at risk. 

That’s why we’re so passionate about our Website Visitor ID X-Ray pixel and its potential for Shopify marketers. 

You can identify 20% or more of your anonymous traffic along with their contact information, the pages they’ve visited, behavioral intent information, and more. 

Sounds pretty useful, right? Let’s dig in. 

The Foundations of Shopify Marketing

The engine of Shopify marketing is personalization. When you make your customers feel like your store really understands them, you can turn them from a potential buyer into a customer for life. 

You establish this feeling over time through strategically nurturing your relationship with your customers. Digital advertising and email marketing are the best and most common tools that Shopify stores use. 

Two things separate the successful marketers from the unsuccessful ones: data quality and strategy. 

The Website Visitor ID X-Ray pixel provides the best quality and volume available. 

Now lets talk strategy!

Audience Segmentation for Shopify Marketing

Segmentation sounds scary and complicated. Thankfully, it’s actually pretty intuitive, especially for experienced shopify marketers. 

The principles are simple. Everyone is unique! You want to tailor your marketing to each person’s unique interests as much as possible. 

If you had unlimited time, maybe you’d design thousands of individualized campaigns for every potential customer, but you don’t. 

Instead, you rely on other information like how they’ve interacted with your store to group potential customers together into, you guessed it, segments! 

When you’ve got the right data, sorting Customers into the right segment is easy. With our sophisticated mix of digital ads and emails flows, you can make the most of your segmentation! 

Ad Retargeting for Shopify stores with

Retargeting is the perfect first step. When customers have heard of your business but haven’t expressed their interest in other ways, they’re a great fit for your retargeting audiences. 

What is ad retargeting? 

Ad retargeting means targeting ads to people who have already heard of you. 

These ads are a great value compared to other ad strategies because people who have heard of you already are much more likely to make a purchase. 

When third-party pixels were blocked, Ad Retargeting performance cratered. This included Facebook’s pixel. 

But Ad retargeting with data generated by our Website Visitor ID X-Ray pixels is way more effective. Our pixel can identify 5 times as many users as the Facebook pixel. Your super effective Shopify marketing strategy is actually super effective again. 

Restore for Shopify Marketing

Our Restore tool is perfect for ecommerce stores looking to reach new customers. 

Ecommerce stores used to rely on each ad platform’s pixel to identify potential buyers. But those just don’t work anymore. 

Our Website Visitor ID X-Ray pixel identifies 20-25% of your visitors! And even better, that data is yours to use. 

Setting up your retargeting audience is a snap, too. We’ve got a direct integration with Facebook that makes it easy. 

In your account, navigate to your My Leads tab and click on “Audiences.” 

You’ll see a big list of all your contacts. Then select “Add FIlter.”

In the Attribute drop-down, select “Landing Page URL” and in the Operator drop-down select “Equals.” Paste the landing page URL in the Value section. 

Then just save it as an audience and you’re good to send it to your Facebook account! 

Email Marketing with

A good series of Shopify flows are key to enduring customer relationships. 

The data generated by our Website Visitor ID X-Ray pixel is purpose-built for this. 

Here’s how you can use our tools for the most effective Shopify flows.

  5. We provide detailed insights on the items they were considering, including how long they were in their cart.
  6. You craft a personalized email, reminding them of their unfinished purchase, perhaps sweetening the deal with a limited-time offer or reassuring product testimonials.


The art of the upsell is not about selling more; it’s about enhancing value. Here’s how you do it:

  1. A customer makes a purchase from your Shopify store.
  2. We track the products they showed interest in but didn’t buy.
  3. You add these insights to your marketing strategy.
  4. When they next engage, perhaps through a follow-up or thank-you email,

  1. A previous buyer goes quiet and hasn’t shopped for a while.

  3. You craft a re-engagement campaign.
  4. If they browse again, we capture what catches their eye, including how long they linger on product pages.
