I'm not sure how much traffic you're driving to your store and what your expectations are with regards to your conversion rate. Typically, if you have less than 1000 visitors in a month, you should be working on driving more traffic. A good conversion rate for a new store is around 2 - 4 % so that would be between 20 and 40 orders if you have 1000 visitors.
When your conversion rate is lower than 2%, you should be looking to establish if you're not targeting the right people or if it's something to do with the shopping experience itself. Since I don't know how you're targeting your customers, I will focus on your store for now.
The $50 price tag seems a bit high to me since the necklace is gold plated. $25 seems more realistic. The way the pricing is set up could be affecting sales so it may be worth experimenting with that.
When I think about websites selling name necklaces, Tatty Devine is the first one that springs to mind. They have a product customizer on the page with a mock-up generator so I can see what my own name will look like in the different fonts and colours. It gives me a better idea of what my purchase will look like. It's hard to judge when I can only see necklaces in someone else's name. You may be able to use the MyCustomizer app to achieve a similar effect or you can hire a Shopify Expert.
I should be able to get a feel for your brand's personality when I visit your site. At the moment, it isn't that memorable so I might forget to return. Keep in mind, most people don't make a purchase on their first visit, you want them to come back to increase your chances of converting them. An About Us page can help bring your brand alive.
Make sure you also have Social Media pages set up for your store. You want people to follow you on there as well as join your email list so you can easily re-target them without the need for as many ads. You can link your Social Media pages to your footer by going to Online Store > Themes > Customize > Theme Settings > Social Media.
To learn how to increase your traffic, check out the free courses on Shopify Compass. We have two courses on Facebook Ads to help you optimize your ad dollars. We also have courses on email marketing, Instagram Marketing and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) which are all cost-effective methods. Email marketing is still the most effective method but you will, of course, have to build your list first.
Since you're offering free shipping, it would be a good idea to make it clear if it is worldwide or if it's just certain countries.
If you're still having issues with your conversion rate after making some adjustments, the Lucky Orange app can help you figure out the reason for abandoned carts.
Let me know how you get on.
We meet again @ConsumerProduct ! I remember you wanted store review and now you're looking for conversion ideas. Well, that's a very nice pace! Hope to see more of it. Here is what you can do to make sure that you're focusing towards conversions -
1. Retarget and remarket - Run your ads with an aim to call back customers who visited your store but they never ordered. Just like Amazon does it through retargeting, try and come up with the same plan and I'm sure a chunk of visitors will return, and out of them, some will definitely get converted!
2. Make your email campaign strong! Maybe they forgot to come back? Maybe they are seeking surety? Maybe they are waiting for a price drop?
3. Have social proof and sharing option! This adds authenticity.

One of the best things you can do to increase your conversion rate is make sure your customers have good experiences. We covered them all in this blog post about nailing customer support. Here are some key stats from the post.
Also - don't be afraid to scale once you're driving traffic from one source. Conversion rates tend to max out and become harder and harder to increase.
Thanks for this reply and all of the others you have provided along my journey of creating this store. You have offered a lot of helpful advice and it is greatly appreciated.
I plan to run a retargeting campaign soon and will update everybody with the results!
I have been sending out emails at regular intervals: 1 hour, 24 hours, and 48 hours.
As for social proof, I am unable to make a Facebook store page for this for some reason, still haven't figured that issue out yet...
Maybe I will try Tumblr, Tik Tok influencers, Snapchat Influencers, or Pinterest.
I've also made some changes to my store based on the other replies to this thread.
Thanks again and glad to see you helping so much!
I would like to give you some suggestions on how to increase conversion rate
Anyway, you have done a good job with your store. Try to increase conversion rate with my suggestions!
I hope this helps.
I am glad to hear that you are finally getting sales!
Now to increase conversion, one of the most effective methods I would suggest is retargeting campaign.
Retargeting campaigns are used to remind customers of the products they are interested in or were put into the cart after they leave the website with very kinds of creatives. You can start by installing the Ako Retargeting app on the Shopify app store. Ako Retargeting is a cost-efficient tool that could help your business increase awareness and conversion. The app helps you get your potential customers back to your website by delivering the most relevant product information to them at the right time, right impression and right cost. You can learn about this Ako Retargeting here: https://medium.com/@akohubteam/what-is-ako-retargeting-c43bda83143b.
Hope this helps you! All the best!
A retargeting campaign is a smart move.
What sort of problems are you having creating a Facebook Business page?
How many people do you have on your email list?
I love this blog post about amassing an army of micro-influencers. They used Instagram but you could apply the same principle to Tik Tok, Snapchat or whatever works for your business.
Facebook seems to have disabled my account and me from posting my store link for no reason. Still waiting to hear back from them if I ever do.
Our email list is still growing which is why I mostly running Prospecting Ads on Snapchat. I recently began my first Retargeting campaign but have not seen results from it yet.
I am, though, running retargeting email campaigns to gain back customers that abandoned their carts.
I will check out that blog post because I am sure that the same information is applicable to Snapchat, thank you!!!!
I will continue to update everyone on this forum with my journey.
Wishing you all the best and hope everybody is staying safe!
That sounds frustrating. I hope Facebook sorts that out for you soon.
Definitely do the Email Marketing course on Shopify Compass I mentioned. It's one of the best time investments you can make because reaching your customer's inbox has a better effect than ads they see in passing and it's more cost-effective to implement. Giving away something for free is the easiest way to collect email addresses, normally a digital download of some sort.
