I launched my store two days ago and on the first day I made the few mistake of spending 200$ on meme bot ads for instagram .. I learned my lesson to not do that anymore. I tried a couple of influencers on instagram and had a spike of visitors spending around 150$, also used facebook/instagram newsfeed ads and spent another 200$, toying around with 4 different products and ads that have had high demand/good engagement on aliexpress.. However my conversion rate is terrible. I have only made one sale and it was today at 2am.
I have had 319 store sessions & 300 visitors just today with no purchase.. My conversion rate looks like this: -28 added to cart, 6 people went to checkout, only 1 bought something. I would really appreciate any kind of feedback to improve my sales, and possibly my marketing strategy because i feel like i am spending all kind of $ for nothing. I cannot keep doing this everything.
For example i have been promoting Lace wigs and choosing demographics to south africa and have been getting crazy amount of views and clicks, however very little to no engagement and zero purchases.
It's been two weeks i have been working on my website with barely any sleep and constant tweaks, promoting through instagram & FB. Any kind of feedback or constructive criticism will be appreciated.
My website is : www.mtlclubstore.com
I also went as far as improving areas where i felt needed improvement based on the analytical's i read for example, i saw the majority of traffic are mobile users so i made my page more mobile friendly, etc.
Also as for my sessions i have 602 visitors and 666 sessions since i opened my store 2 days ago..
Hi @FaridMTL !
Welcome to Shopify and I wish you good luck!
If your website is credible, you’ll be able to generate more site traffic.
One of the best ways to gain credibility is to leverage your relationships with influencers. You can approach this tactic in many different ways.
If you have the means, you can use celebrities to promote your brand.
That’s because these people are already known and trusted. Working with a celebrity shows your brand is legitimate. The problem is it’s obvious to consumers these celebrities are getting paid to pitch your products or services. As an alternative solution, you can use micro-influencers. One of the top reasons why I’m an advocate for using micro-influencers is because they have high engagement rates with their followers.
The sale you have seems to be a nice deal, however, when you make such a big amount off it might devalue your product. People always need to know why you have made such sales, is it a seasonal sale? or is it because there is no demand for it? Does that mean the product is bad?Instead of giving a discount for nothing, give them rewards for completing certain actions on your store ex. for creating accounts, for leaving a review, for sharing your site, for spending money on your site. It is not difficult for a user to do and you will get so many actions on your site, and you are having discounts anyway.
Use a referral program that will encourage your existing customers to share your products with their friends by giving discounts if the latter have purchased something from your store. With referral programs it is important to carefully set up so that you are not giving huge discounts and not getting anything back. [I recommend using one by Growave., because it is safe and it is integrated with 6 other marketing features (Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards, Social Login, Instagram, Discounts, Referral, VIP tiers) for better performance.
Hopefully, I managed to help you. If so, please let me know by liking this post.
After looking on your Product Page, I have some recommendations that may useful for your store.
1. Make your header sticky
This would be more convenient for all users if they're scrolling up and down in your store. They still can access to another section during surfing and easily checking what inside Cart right now or searching for a specific item.
2. Secondary button
If your primary button is 'BUY NOW' so make you 'ATC' button just using outline instead of a fully color background like this. Customers may have confused when they see 2 similar button like this.
3. Products description
Because you have many many product's images above so in this section, you don't need to put these images inside it once again. There is one thing you miss about this is the size of watches. You can put a table for customer to know what sizes are suitable for them? Is this product limit at any sizes? You didn't mention it in Product's title or description, so customers feel kind of confused before making purchase for it.
Hope that my suggestions may help you in some way. Furthermore, you can check this article to know how to optimize your product page.
I've taken a look at your store and found there are quite a few things which if added can make better conversions.
1. Add 'New Arrivals' section to help customers keep updated on new products.
2. Add product reviews as most of the customers read the review before purchasing the product.
3. You can add testimonials on the home page to make the store look more professional.
4. Discounts and limited-time offers will help to increase sales.
5. Add the footer page links under the Quick links section vertically instead of adding horizontally.
6. Add capital letters for the starting letter of each word in both header and footer. Example: change Men's club to Men's Club and About us to About Us
7. Set the width and height of Buy Now button same as that of Add to Cart button
8. Add more specific product title/url in product pages.
Creating the perfect SEO product title/url can help the search engine understand exactly what it is you are selling and drive more traffic to your site. So try to keep the product title/url unique and more specific.
Before you think of ranking you should ensure your pages are found (indexed by Google). flare by Mansion Ecommerce is a service intended for site owners, store owners, pro bloggers that don’t have the time or expertise to deal with GSC, Bing Webmaster Tool & myriad other tools on a daily basis.
