Hi @Shopprettydress ,

 

I've spent a few minutes on your store and I must say that it looks great. The contrast is good, I like the way you use your product image in real context, it helps visitors to know how the dress might fit with a body. However, I believe there are some small glitches that we can still improve on the site. Let's figure out:

The banner images look a bit blur, have you noticed that? It's better if we can optimize them for the best quality. As a visitor, I might judge your site based on the quality of product images.

On the header, I think you can reduce the size of the logo to save space for the other navigation buttons so they will be aligned perfectly on straight line.

Since you've engaged visitors on your site to follow the store instagram, please make sure that they know where to click. It's better to add an external link in paragraph or heading text that opens instagram account of your store in a new tab.

I noticed a big gap under product details, it seems like an issue from the theme you're using. You should check the design first then contact the theme provider if you can't handle fixing it.

 

Next thing on the product page is that, while the page has an area to show reviews but I can't find anywhere to write a review. It's better to let visitors leave some nice words on your store.

Sorry if I missed a thing but I believe that the navigation should be rearranged, from left to right based on its group meaning: Home, New Arrival, Dresses, Sizing Chart, About Us, Contact Us.

One last thing, I've checked your page speed and it seems like the score on desktop is pretty good but on mobile it's a bit slow. This is mainly caused by your theme as well as some images haven't been optimized yet. You can check the result here: https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fprettydressboutique.com%2F...

 

Hope it will help you to bring more sales in the next quarter ;)

Have a nice day  😊

Hey Pretty Dress Boutique,

Everything from Logo to Central Banner looks quite professional and complete. But at the same time, some minor flaws can change the overall future performance of the store leading to loss of sales. Some suggestions of mine to you for store optimization are as follows:

  1. The logo should not be placed in between breaking the components of the main menu. It should be placed on the top left of the header instead.
  2. The spacing between the main menu components should be arranged accordingly.
  3. Main menu elements are haphazardly arranged. The correct order of arrangement is as follows: Home, Dresses, New Arrivals, Sizing Chart, About Us and Contact Us.
  4. Placement of the search bar on the top right of the header is more desirable than when it is placed on the top left for a well-organized header view.
  5. The header template should be placed above the logo and main menu instead of being placed above the central banner.
  6. "About us" section should certainly be descriptive. Add some images and a little more description to make it look more detailed.
  7. Decisiveness of the customer can be improved if you add product reviews below each item.
  8. For better customer interaction, a contact form is a must in the "Contact Us" section.
  9. You can also install one of the most popular app Growwave which is all in one marketing platform that helps store owners increase conversions with ease.
  10.  Finally, I would also recommend replacing the default search with an advanced search like Sparq which allows synonyms, advanced custom tag filters, spelling correction, and other such features. Visitors with search are high intent users and their conversion rate is higher than normal users.
    Check out the features live here.
    You can use Sparq free trial for as many products in your store. After the trial period, you can enjoy with Sparq’s Free Starter Plan for upto 1000* products.

Wishing you all the luck and fortune for the days to come.

Neha :)

HOMEPAGE :

A lot can be done to your homepage to make it more informative & attractive.

Overall you have a great site. I would look at making some changes on your product pages...


Product Page  Feedback

    1. Add a longer product description as this is how you convince someone to buy on your site. Plus it helps with SEO and ranking in organic search

    2. Ask past customers for reviews is a great way to build social proof and makes it easier for people to trust your brand

    3. ASOS and other leading fashion brands are doing little fashion videos for their product pages. Something you could film on an iPhone or latest Android and add to your site.
