Built my first store, selling cannabis designed socks. Built everything myself, and I am in the beginning of running ads.

 

I am wondering if I need to:

-Have my store looking perfect before I run ads, or can somewhat "homely" sites profit as well?

 

If I should work on my store more before I run ads:

-What should I improve first?

 

Any tips on apps, store layout, pricing, products, that might help me become profitable?

 

Thanks.

Hey Kushsock,

"Faq" and "About us" can be shifted to the main menu beside "contact us" and removed from the footer respectively. Apart from that, some other keen observations regarding your store are as follows:

  1. The newsletter should be shifted to the footer instead.
  2. Utilize the newsletter space for adding testimonials very crucial for better brand promotion.
  3. Bestsellers need to be added to show the unique site products.
  4. Seperate "Sale" section needs to be added for all discounted products.
  5. Currency converter needs to be added as you deal with worldwide shipping.
  6. The product description needs to be more detailed along with the addition of more images to it.
  7. The central banner needs to be full width in order to avoid the unwanted space on both sides.
  8. You can also install one of the most popular app Growwave which is all in one marketing platform that helps store owners increase conversions with ease.
  9. Finally, I would also recommend replacing the default search with an advanced search like Sparq which allows synonyms, advanced custom tag filters, spelling correction, and other such features. Visitors with search are high intent users and their conversion rate is higher than normal users.
    Check out the features live here.
    You can use Sparq free trial for as many products in your store. After the trial period, you can enjoy with Sparq’s Free Starter Plan for upto 1000* products.

Hope the store improvement yield positive results for you.

Hello,

 

I had look into your website, It' looking good.
I observed few points on your website, I hope those are helpful for your website.
-> There is lot of extra space in the header part. You can remove those extra spaces so that user may not scroll down the page to view your banner images and simultaneously CTA also get highlights.
-> Add more than one Gallery images under product page.
-> Add Reviews under product page.
-> Regularly post your products through social media pages.
Otherwise great work you have done on your website.

 

Thanks,
Appfreaker.

Hi @Kushsocks , 

 

For a single-person-owned and first store, your site looks captivating. Despite the fact that you specialize on a very specific market, you have a nice variety of items and the site does not seem to be empty or unfinished at all. 

 

What should I improve first?

-The header menu is too wide, that green space that you have takes up half of the screen and does not look too appealing. Place the icon lower, on the body of the homepage. 

-use the static-fixed scroll to give access to all essential pages from any place of your site

-place the links on the navigation bar in the center

-on mobile there 3 pop-ups appearing one after another, that might disrupt a person a little

-customer reviews section on the product page is barely noticeable. if you want more testimonials, you might want to make it stand out more

 

Any tips on apps, store layout, pricing, products, that might help me become profitable?

-To add more social engagement on your site I recommend using our app- Growave. It has Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards and so much more all in one.

-As for prices, it depends on the cost per item and obviously the location where your audience is.  If it is in developing countries, the prices might be too high. And for the developed countries, the price is average. I would like to say though, there are socks out there that retail for less. 

-you can expand your product variety by adding more prints that resonate with your brand. That will keep you in the same niche, but cover more audience. 

 

Hopefully, I managed to help you, if so let me know by marking this post as a solution or reply for more detailed information. 

 

Good luck!

Hi Neha,

 

I quite enjoy this reply. Having the FAQ and About Us in my top menu can be beneficial, and have more than just reading resources up top.

 

I like your suggestion of adding testimonials to my page, it will make it look more authoritative and might garner some sales that way.

 

Couple questions for you:

 

-Do you find the green color, and the logo "unappealing"?

-How would I go about getting more product images, if the images are from a Dropshipper?

Hi Aizada,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

Can you specify on what 3 pop-ups you are experiencing?

I know there's one webform asking you to sign up. Are you referring to the messenger chat at the bottom right and perhaps "sale pop"? 

 

If you referring to those 2, can anyone else chime in on whether Sales Pop and messenger chat bubble constitute as taking away from the shopping experience?

The pleasure is mine! Pleased to help you. Coming to your question, the logo looks perfect with a blend of green and talking about your second question, Even if you don't have more product images still, you can just expand your product description a little bit which will suffice the purpose.
