If you sell craft beer, one of the things you can do to increase your sales is setting up an online store where you can sell your beers. Through an online store, you can easily meet the demands of your customers and even deliver the beer to their doorsteps.
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck, many businesses including craft beer businesses could not meet their targets with regards to sales. Their selling activities were affected because they could not deliver beers to restaurants and pubs (they closed down), could not sell to their customers directly, and most shops and stores were closed down.
Selling online and making sure that customers get their beers was the only way left for them. Even though the world has opened up, online shops have picked up and every business needs them for success. So, how do you get started?

The COVID-19 pandemic has made millions of restaurants around the globe shut their doors and adapt to a different and much more convenient way of doing business – accelerating the online restaurant ordering system.
Several third-party services like Uber Eats and Grubhub can help you get your restaurant menu online and take online food orders. However, their downside is that they come with a huge cost – and cut 20-30% from your earnings.

Conversion rate is one of the most important metrics to look out for when running an online store.
Once you have your store all set up and start attracting traffic to your site through SEO and paid advertising, it’s now time to look at how many of your store’s visitors are converting.
Let’s step back for a moment and take a look at what a conversion is, anyway? Conversion happens when a prospect does what you want them to do.
If the purpose of a page is to get the email address of the visitor, you’ll have a successful conversion when a visitor lands on your page and drops their email address.
In terms of eCommerce, conversions usually refer to the event when a visitor buys your products and completes the checkout process. Or simply put, it means a big, fat sale.
If you thought attracting people to your site was enough to persuade them to buy your products, well, you’re seriously mistaken. It turns out that the average conversion rate in eCommerce is only 1-2%. So, even if you’re doing everything right, you’ll be closing the deal only 2% of the time.
That means every little bit matters.
In this difficult territory of getting people to convert, comes a list of growth-hacking and optimization plugins for WooCommerce that will put your store’s conversions on fire.

Interesting, isn’t it? This has been on my to-write list for ages, so today I want to show you my first attempt at turning the Shop page into a list/table of products as opposed to the default grid.
This is especially suitable to B2B WooCommerce shops, or for those websites where customers don’t really need to see huge product images and are used to order “from a product form”.
Let’s see how I did this – I will try to comment my PHP as much as possible so you can understand my strategy. Enjoy!
