I can help you look at your data. It's to help you narrow down where people are dropping off and not purchasing anything.

It could be literally anything.

Just pulling a few things from what I can see, is that your product descriptions are lacking. Which you will need to properly fill out if you want build trust.

The reviews button on products is empty.

Page load speed is a little bit slower than I like.

It looks like you ripped things off of Ali Express. You may want to write your own descriptions and take your own pictures of the products.

Having proper tracking while improving your website should help to tell you if what you are doing is working.

 

Shoot me a message, if you are looking for more serious help on getting started on how to track.

Hey there 

 

 

As per my opinion, you need to create a some urgency and social proof on your store. And I sincerely think you need to add a top announcement on your store which shows urgency and you can display your announcements like "free shipping",etc. on them. I highly recommend Superbar

 

Social proof will help your visitors see who all has bought your products and that increases the trust of the viewer on your product. You can use the same app (Superbar) it provides you tools like a countdown timer, geolocation, etc. I’ll be adding links of a few apps that you could use for social proof as well below. 

 

For example, I'm sure you've seen how amazon creates urgencies in sales by showing the number of products left, upcoming sales, or drive sales by showing how quickly they have to order an item to get quick delivery, right down to the minute. 

 

If you want to sell more, boosting the sense of urgency in your marketing is the way to go. Making people feel as if they’re about to miss out on or lose a great opportunity is a powerful way to drive conversions.

 

One parting tip: like many other techniques, the urgency is best used in moderation. Don’t try to put pressure on your potential customers all the time, or they’ll stop taking your offers seriously. 

 

Instead, focus on periodically offering great deals that really are limited. I'm providing you some other app links that might be useful.

Your social proof product won't work, if they haven't made a sale yet. The original poster is looking for why there are no sales.

Blindly throwing apps on your site isn't the greatest either, because it just slows down the site making it less likely for visitors to come and shop.

 

My suggestion is to limit the amount of apps used and make sure the ones that you use are absolutely necessary.

 

Cheers,

Hey,

Sounds good, what is the best way to contact you?

I can send you some instructions and ask you some questions. Then give you a plan to move forward. I have no guarantees that it will work, but it is a place to start for sure.

Sincerely,

A note for anyone else who would be reading this thread in the future:

 

The OP mentioned that they are getting visitors to their store however they are not able to convert the sales and get the traction they need

 

Social proof is proven to help with conversions and sales and is one of the most effective ways for building trust with your visitors. Here is a very well written article about the same on the shopify blog https://www.shopify.in/blog/social-proof

 

There is no one shoe fits all when it comes to marketing and conversions trying different techniques or apps and seeing what works for your store is the way to go.

 

Cheers

Yes,

Social proof is definitely important, but with out statistical data to track it and back it up, you are likely to bounce around between different apps left and right at best guessing whether it works or not.

You should definitely try different apps, but you need to be able to measure and quantify the benefits of the app in order to bring about results. I'm definitely advocating for making sure that you have the right apps installed.

In case you don't believe that installing a bazillion apps doesn't affect conversion rate, take a read through this article: https://blog.hubspot.com/marketing/page-load-time-conversion-rates. Each app adds to the load time, more apps -> slower pagespeed -> less conversions.

Install apps, measure their performance and impacts on different metrics that contribute to conversion rate; such as: bounce rate, cart abandonment rate, session duration, product detail view rate. Rather than blindly install different apps for social proof, users may need to focus on the basics of their stores, then slowly add apps to help boost some of these metrics. Empires are not built in a day.

That is simply all I'm advocating for.

I'm not sure where this is coming from, after reading the thread once again I didn't see any part of it denying what you're trying to advocate.

That being said.

Obviously,Knowing your numbers is very important and as a thumb rule installing unnecessary code or apps to a store should be avoided
