Yes it is true, if you have an e-commerce store making your own product videos or linking up with existing influencers is essential. This is a great way to build relationships and get your website and products seen by a dedicated audience. Look for videos similar to your products and reach out to local experts who would be a good partner.
9. Page Analytics –
Google Analytics has an app available for the Chrome browser that is called page analytics. This extension allows you to see your most clicked links on your website. From there, you can derive what links are working and where no one clicks to improve UI experience. The Page Analytics Chrome extension is free.

Is an extremely popular app for page building, A/B testing, analytics, and improving sales retention. It lets you easily build new pages with drag and drop options. Cost is $49 per month.
3. Lucky Orange
Is an app that gives you visual heatmaps that shows where your customers are clicking on your pages. I am a fan of heatmaps as a visual data tool to see what links are working and what are not. Similar data can be found using Google analytics plugin but it does miss where people are actually all going toward at once.
