In desperate need of honest feedback.

Hello my name is Devin and on April 21st I launched Dude Essentials. Dude Essentials is an online clothing store for men that targets guys ages 17+. Right now the store is just selling casual menswear, but formal menswear may be added later (although I don't see many Dudes in formal wear). Anywho, I have started multiple ad campaigns on both Facebook and Instagram as well as Google Adwords. I seem to get the most quality leads from Google Adwords, My users from Facebook seem to just bounce right off the site, and my Instagram referrals fall somewhere in between (although I do have the most followers there). I was hoping to get some feedback on my site because I have seen an increase in traffic lately, but I have yet to sell anything. This is my first store and I've only been at it about 10 days, but I would really appreciate any advice to point me in the right direction because I am starting to get discougaged. However, I am determined to make this work and any tips or resources you have at your disposal would mean the world to me.

Hey there,

I think you should have a proper logo. Also, your contact page is just a blank form.

Hi There,

Below are my findings about your store.

- Design a logo for your store.
- It would be helpful if yopu provide your contact details like email and contact no for customers.
- Provide Shipping details - Estimated delivery date.
- Give some related items of the products.
- Please add refund policies.

-Add trust badges like Secured seal, money back guarantee. You can check the below link for related apps https://apps.shopify.com/search/query?utf8=?&q=trust 

- You can check our photo review app https://apps.shopify.com/myreviewfy to get reviews in attarctive layouts with images.

Hi,

Please do not add secure seals badges, money back garanguar. Those won't help you at all. They will hurt your business. Anyone can add that crap. 

You can Norton seal or a simmilar seal but not those apps. Ask a Shopify experience for advida and they will tell you the same I'm telling you. :)

Thanks for the feedback. Do either of you have a suggestion for a website where I can make a logo for free or inexpensively?

Hello there, 

I always use Canva.com to design my logos and other slideshow images. 

It's pretty much for people who don't know how to use photoshop or want to save time.

Hey Devin,

I took a look at your store and I have some tips for you that might help you improve.

  • For some reason, you have Contact us and FAQ buttons twice in your footer menu. You should erase one. 
  • On your home page, you have a blank category Your collection's name. You should erase that. 
  • As the other guys said you should add a button for info about Shipping instead of just writing it in your FAQ page.
  • You might want your social media links to open in a new tab so your customers stay on your website and are not redirected elsewhere. Here you can find how you can do it.
  • Once you have enough visitors you may think about approaching them with retargeting ads. You can try our app ROI Hunter Easy for that. It generates personalized ads with products your visitors left in the cart or have browsed. Sometimes, the visitors make a purchase immediately but usually, they need more than one visit to make a decision and it's good to remind them of your store.
  • If you'll need more feedback or advice you can try this FB group. It small but still growing group of people interested in improving their e-commerce. 

Hope it helps.

Hello everyone! I greatly appreciate your feedback and I decided to take some of your advice and redesign my store a little bit. I am still trying to figure out how to add a disclaimer to product pages about shipping times so if anyone has a suggestion other than going in and updating every product description it would be greatly appreciated. 

Thanks Again!

Hi Devin,

Have you used your 60 minute free time (for store changes) with Shopify?

Just wondering because all stores come with one free hour website tweaking.  You can either chat or call Shopify and they will help. :)
