Also if you dont mind checking out my website and telling me what i can do better and please do not sugur coat anything. Again thank you for you time and effort.
Hi Jack, I visited your website. I would suggest choosing a brighter theme as your website does seem a bit gloomy to me. Secondly, you did not mention how much traffic you are getting. If you are not using Google Analytics, I strongly suggest you do so.
If you figure out that you are getting a decent amount of traffic and still there are no sales, it may be because you are attracting the wrong kind of traffic on your site. You may have to invest in Facebook marketing to get a more targetted reach and valid traffic.
I would suggest changing the design of your website. It does not look attractive for the customer, maybe is better if you choose a white background instead of black.
You should also start investing on marketing, otherwise you will not get traffic (no traffic = no sales)
You can start with Google Adwords or Facebook ads, but first make sure to redesign your website first!
