Why should I use automation on my Shopify store?

So, what is automation? Automation refers to the use of technology to process tasks without manual intervention. Automation can help you save time and money, increase productivity, and provide better customer service.

With up to 61% of businesses experimenting with AI solutions, now is the time to explore the benefits introducing automation to your eCommerce store. Some areas you can automate include product tags, pricing, inventory management, customer service and more.

Automating product descriptions

The world of writing product copy is a nuanced one. It can be easy to get it wrong, especially when it comes to maintaining the brand tone of voice with a sales-oriented copy. Plus, investing in a copywriter may be out of reach for many small-to-medium enterprises, so that’s where automation comes in.

Automate your product descriptions and you’ll save time creating content that resonates with your target audience. Solutions like Okkular’s Description-Gen make writing product descriptions en masse a breeze. Okkular is a powerful AI program for retail automation and intuitive product discovery.

Leveraging machine learning and drawing on data generated through visual AI, Description-Gen works by creating product descriptions that are optimised for SEO. This keyword-rich product copy can be uploaded straight to your Shopify store, and can also supply additional descriptions for other sales channels like marketplaces and socials.

By introducing automation to tag assignment, you can scale your product information to a level that would be near impossible to achieve manually.
