I just started my store with printify and tonight is my second night wworking on my store , had a lot of fun designing the shirts to sell as well as building the website. I invested on a couple facebook ads to get some traffic in and I have low sales as to be expected 3 to be exact lmao.

Hi There,

I just took a quick look and it looks pretty good to me--but mind you I am in the process of revamping my store with a web developer and trying to increase my sales as well. At least you got 3 organic sales--I have yet to do so!

The only thing I might do is play around with the background to make your products easier to see? Even out the sizing of the product letter titles? Maybe add an "About Us" section? Choose a product and pt it on sale?

Wish I could be of more help!:)

Here's to Abundant Sales & Cash Flow!:)

Hey @BlackMenthol !! Great to see your store running. I must say, you have some amazing printed products out there! After going through your website, here are a few suggestions that I'd like to give - 

 

1. Instead of having a black background, have a white background - it will enhance your products! As soon as I scrolled down to see your products, It was weird to see those white boxes. I understand that you wanted to have a theme that should compliment your name, but try and have a theme with a white background and see the magic!

2. Your homepage at a lot of space here :-

Don't do that. It just spoils user experience. If you want, we can design a logo and make it fit in the header menu itself so that all this extra space can just be occupied somewhere else! 

3. It's great that you gave social media handles, in the same way, you should also enable product reviews and testimonials! It just adds authenticity to your store. And shoppers love to give their reviews! 

4. You can edit your About us section and talk more about your brand instead of using it as a space for Q&As! 

5. Why don't you have a blog section? It will be useful to rank up in the SERPs which finally means that you're gaining momentum. 

6. We can remove Powered by Shopify  - Its just one of the customisation we do for our stores! 

7. Your fonts are eating up the look~eel of the store .. The are quite big and too simple to capture user's attention! 

Don't worry, because you've just started your journey and it's been 2 days .. the store looks decent! People actually ignore to take reviews .. But you' being conscious about your store 1st day onward just tells about your seriousness and dedication towards your store! Do not hesitate to reach back to us for customisation ; store development ; formulating sales strategy ; implementing analytical tools in your store ; and much more! 

There was a client of ours - Ron CEO of Vorratu - crazy sellers of crazy tea flavors & we helped them as much as we can. Today, the store has a dynamic presence, and its getting orders from across the globe! 

Then there was Freshmo - selling a range of fragrance products around the globe - when they started their store we were glad to get associated with them and with time we have grown astonishingly! We hope to add your venture in our list too .. because there is a lot of scope in your store and in sales strategy. 

You can check our client stories to know that what we do might not be the best, but it definitely has an impact and its result-driven!

We are just a message away! We'll be glad to have a small-talk with you! 

Cheers!

Helping store owners in their smooth eCommerce journey! ;)

Hi @cicicreates 

Welcome to the Shopify family, and congratulations on your store.

Your store looks pretty great on the first look, good job. I have a few observations to add:

  1. Why is “slide” written in the first fold?  As soon as I land, doesn’t tell me anything about what you sell. There are images, but I could only find out what you actually sell by scrolling down. Consider updating the content in the first fold. Be clear about who you are and what you’re selling, and why someone should buy from you
  2. Anime_Streetwear_–_BlackMenthol (1).png
  3. The product images are really really small on the catalog page. Only if I click a specific product is when I’m actually able to see the item in detail. Consider increasing their size.
  4. About us - You’ve given a nice explanation about your company ideals. I would say add a human factor to it by talking about the people as well - the team and why you started. Mention your story, add pics of the people, and make it personal. 
  5. IN the t-shirt product listings, it might make sense to insert a proper size chart. One which actually says what the dimensions of each size are. I personally tend to look into these a lot whenever I’m shopping for clothing, because sometimes different shops are slightly different sizes. It’s currently added in a greyish font, I can’t see it at all in most cases. 
  6. This button really makes me question the legitimacy of the testimonials. So will users. I’d suggest doing something about this. 
  7. Anime_Streetwear_–_BlackMenthol.png
  8. There is something in the way your fonts and product images are structured, on the home page. It doesn’t look professional. Your website is the only experience users have with your company, and you have to make it professional enough to earn their trust.

I hope this advice helps out. Hoping for more sales in your store!

Cheers.

Fun store! A few suggestions:

1. If you get a free tool like Hotjar, set up some heatmaps to see what people are doing on your site and how far they are scrolling down.

2. Do you retarget your emails that you have collected?

3. I would add some brand building elements on the homepage. Add some text about your story and why you are different from your competitors. You can display your products right under it :)

Hope this helps! AdRoll is currently offering a 90 day free trial for our growth plan. Check us out:

Hello @BlackMenthol ,

I just had a look at your store, your store looks great. I have a few suggestions for you hope they might help you.

 

  • Add a live chat so that if a customer has any questions they can easily contact you.
  • There are no trust badges at your checkout page, try adding them as trust badges help your customers know that your site is safe to shop. 
  • Try adding SEO related high search keywords in your title and product description so that it will be very easy to market your products and display them at the top in google search.
  • Add a blog page, blog page helps you to share more about your website and products which increases your site visibility.

 

 

I hope our feedback helps you.

 

Thanks,

Hi @BlackMenthol !

Welcome to Shopify and I wish you good luck!

1. The first thing that I have noticed - as you are having a very dark black theme, your white font is not so comfortable to read - change the font, or theme, or style of your text. While reading your product descriptions, my eyes got tired. 

2. Add the CTA button on your hero banner "Shop now"

3. Add trust payment badges

4. As it is your own production of the clothes - I suggest adding the blog page - and tell there about your brand, story about your products. 

5. Implement an opportunity to log in and sign up using Social Media account. We all have accounts at least in one social media. And if I have an opportunity to create an account just with one click, I will do it. having an easier way to Sign in will help you gather customer base. The most valuable thing for a company is the customer.

6.90% of people read reviews before purchasing an item. I personally do not read the description too much, I go straight on to the reviews section because that is social proof. In my opinion that is essential for every site. I highly recommend (almost insist) and adding that feature on your site. You can use Growave for that, it offers automated emails within the Reviews feature as well. 

For adding the functions above you can several apps. However, if you want to get all of them at once just with a couple of clicks, try  Growave.

We have 6 great features -Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards, Social Login, Instagram, Discounts, etc. 

There is a free plan available.

 Hopefully, I managed to help you. If so, please let me know by liking this post.

Hi @Sajay ,

I appreciate the feedback, but I think that you got my store mixed up with BlackMethol.

My store is in the process of being revamped, so I will definitely ask for feedback when it's finished.

It's plain, but you're welcome to have a look.
