My store is fairly new and I am hoping to do things right from the get go!
I've red quite a bit on price points and the marketing side and i am starting to get visitors to my site but no purchases and nothing in shopping carts.
any feedback would be helpful!
Jason here from Shopify Support.
I love your store vibe and the products that you're selling. They are interesting with a fun retro vibe. It's clear that you have a target audience in mind. Kudos on doing price point researches beforehand! This will help you in the long run. After going through your pages in detail, here are my suggestions that can improve your store's user experience.
These are the minor tweaks I recommend you to check out and go through. When you have a moment, take some time to visit your favorite online stores. Take about an hour to take notes on what you like and dislike about them. Is the pop out ad distracting or helping you create interest? What are the colors used? What pages do they have? What are their product pages like? Once you have the notes, take a 15 minutes break and come back to your store. Start checking your notes and see how you can implement these designs in your store. Don't forget that with a paid plan, you have an hour design time with our Theme Support team. While some customizations are outside of the scope due to the time needed, feel free to reach out to our Support team at any time. We'd be happy to go through your requests and see how we can help.
After we've gone through the store designs, let's move on to your digital marketing strategies. You mentioned that you've done some research on the marketing side of things. I'm curious to learn what you've learned and what you're currently implementing to drive traffic to your store. I noticed that you don't have any social media buttons/links in your store. Have you been leveraging your social media followers? If so, I encourage you to set up social media links from the theme editor. You can do so by going to admin > Online Store > Themes > Customize. Once in the theme editor, on the left-hand panel, click on Theme settings > Social media.
Scroll down to Social accounts and you can enter your social media links.
When you're done, click Save at the top-right corner.

Customized products are great to sell but why should anyone buy from you ? At the moment your website is lacking a few key things to convert those visitors into sales. I'd work on.
