Hi! I am new to Shopify and ecommerce, I launched my online store (print on demand) 3 days ago. My niche are millennial dog lovers in Puerto Rico (the page is in spanish) and puertorricans and/or latin americans in the USA.  I am a little overwhelmed by all the overflow of instructions and information, since I am doing it all alone for now. You tube and emails to Canva, Shopify etc.. have been my teachers.

 

I have new likes in Instagram (4patas_pr) everyday and Facebook (4 Patas Puerto Rico) but still not much visits to my store and no sales. Please can someone give me feedback on my page? https://4pataspr.com and suggestions and ideas on how I can make my first sale (and the approximate time it takes to make a first sale on a new site).

 

Thanks!!

hey @lolaflores ,

1st question: how long does it take to make a sale?

  • It varies between hours and months. It usually depends on the product type. Since your items tend to be an "aspirational" good rather than a "need-to-have", expect it to take longer. 
  • If you aren't running ads, the Instagram insights can be rather limited. There is a huge chance that the likes on your pages are people who like the photos buy don't even own a pet

2nd question: how to make your first sale

  • If you have already installed your FB pixel and Google tag set-up, the lowest hanging fruit would be to work on retargeting people who have already visited those specific product pages.

  • If you don't have any visitors at this point, you should spend some time building up your funnel

Thanks so much for taking the time to write and giving me your expert advice! I realize I have sooooo much to learn and do before i can get my first sale! I have not installed facebook pixel neither google tagging. So that are the next steps I am going to learn how to do and do.

I am still setting up Google shopping in my shopify store and for some reason i have not received google ads email yet to complete the setup. But first things first. I love that you send me the graphics to guide me and hope this helps other people just starting out like me.
