Hi @Lifeathome  

I have thoroughly assessed your store and I can see that your store is lacking sales funnel integration, social media page, even though there is live chat.

You need to create a strong social media presence for your brand/products.

The other thing is that are you able to target the right audience in your ads? You must be able to target and get your service / products to your right audience through audience insight.

Hi @Lifeathome welcome to Shopify community 

Hope your business is going well during these difficult times. I checked your store website, and I have a few tips and feedback I'd like to share:

1. Add Wishlist to your website. They are a great way to alert customers about a sale, drive traffic to your site. Also, you can do more target-oriented email campaigns. Also, Add to Cart and Checkout Page needs to have a bit more planning - like giving users a visual checkout process, and the option to continue shopping from the checkout page.

Build confidence by using social proof: Social proof comes in many forms. They can be reviews, trust badges, customer testimonials, videos, ratings, etc. Customers are more likely to trust you when you have social proofs that establish you’re a reputable brand other people are already buying from.

------> Reviews: Get more reviews in your products, this is for shoppers to gain some confidence in buying from your store. To know more about how to ask for reviews politely, you can read it here.

------>Add trust badges and trust seals: One of the easiest things you can do to make your e-commerce site more trustworthy is to add trust badges, this will make them feel more comfortable making a purchase. You can read about it here

2. Show off the products: People tend to rely on engaging visuals to help drive their purchases. Since online buyers do not have the option to experience your products in-person, it's important to draw them in with great product photos, and right now your images are of low-res and small. More on visual cues that can help make your store a better shopping experience can be read here.

3. 
Add a favicon to your website. It will help you strengthen your brand and to add a polished look to your website.

4. Adding product stickers/trust badges can help increase your sales by tapping into powerful psychological triggers such as scarcity, social proof, and urgency. Also having graphic and personalized stickers on products will help grab the attention of customers easily and nudge them to purchase.

I hope this helps!

Hey, 

I agree with the other posters here to fix some of those issues. But right now we can only point out things we see.

There's a lot of the process we can't see.

My advice is to start tracking your data and then make the changes and see if it impacts your metrics. You need to look at it from different perspectives not just conversion rate, but bounce rate, time on page, cart abandonment rate, and product detail view rate at the minimum to understand what can be improved. We also do video replays, so you will be able to collect replay videos of your customers, journey through your website to know who, why, where your customers are dropping off. Time to stop doing guess work.

If you would like, I can provide a free analytics consultation which involves:

  • getting you started on tracking data
  • taking a deep dive into your data: look at where your traffic comes from, what they do on site, why they might be dropping off
  • identifying metrics and areas that could cause issues
  • working together to see what we can improve to bring up that conversion rate
  • at the end of the day you know your market the best, but I can help to provide key insights and a second opinion on what could be improved

If you are interested just send me your email in a private message and we can work together more efficiently via email. 

If you have any questions, I'm open to being fully transparent. I'm really just looking for some positive reviews for my app.

Cheers

Hi @Lifeathome !

Welcome to Shopify and I wish you good luck!

  1. Clear CTAs - help to show what to do next. Hero banner on your homepage is a key to make a connection with every visitor. You should clearly communicate what your website is about.
  2. Branding - clearly show your company branding. Logo, brand colors, brand fonts - should be the same across websites, emails, and social profiles. A key part of building your brand is making it recognizable. 
  3. Social proof - an incredibly powerful sales and lead generation tool. 
  4. Engaging images - you need them on your homepage to give visitors a sense of what your business is about. Images help you to tell a story and show visitors what they can gain from your product. For a product website think about how images can convey the value of your product and help your visitors to achieve their goals.
  5. If your website doesn’t have a blog already, make creating one a priority. But if you have a blog, it gives people a reason to keep coming back. Blogs also help improve your SEO because you’re constantly adding new content to your page.
  6. I have also found that there are only a few products in your store, try adding more products so that your customers will have a lot of options to select from.
  7. 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.
  8.  Homepage designs guides your visitors around your website. To engage visitors you need to work on homepage layout design.  Include trust indicators on the homepage. Homepage content should be strategically decided.
  9. 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
  10. The items in your store are something that every person will need in their lives. Therefore, I recommend using a Referral program by Growave to give your customers an opportunity of sharing your products with friends and getting rewarded for that.
  11. 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 @Lifeathome 

Your half job is done that you are able to attract visitors. If you have visitors to your store but they are not converting then you would definitely need to see the visitors' analytics to check their behavior and then to interact with them through email marketing and Facebook live chat to understand their feedback and give them customized offers if needed. It's most important that you look into building customer relationships. I would recommend checking the abandoned cart recovery app by CareCart. It's simple and easy to use and will help you a lot in interacting with your visitors. I am not selling anything here, just giving you a tip to check out the cart abandonment thing I think that's where the problem lies.

Apart from that, I won't recommend spending too much on ads if they are not driving sales pause them for some time and try to build direct talk relationships with your audience. Good Luck

Hi @Lifeathome,

Just take a look at your store and have some comments below:

- I think those sliders are too big, I can see anything but those photos at the first sight of your home page.  

ConveyLego0612_1-1598935292541.png

- I guess you're building your Instagram, so try to do faster because it looks so alone at the end of your homepage.

- I don't see the unique parts at home on your homepage. Your story is the best part to add on. 

Hope it helps!

Hey there @Lifeathome ! After going through your store, here's what I'd like to suggest - 

1. You need to reduce the size of the images. They're too big in the homepage and eating a lot of space out there! Also, you can reduce the button size on product pages. Such big text fields are not required here.

118258351_10218313418970807_79228533817326687_o.jpg

 

2. If you're not welcoming customer reviews, you should! They add authenticity to the product and to your store! 

If you're not getting sales by running ads, then you should stop running ads for the time being. I see that you don't have many products for now. Maybe you should go for social media marketing and try and grab the attention of online shoppers organically?! Also, what are you doing to entertain abandoned carts? 

Another possibility might be is that you're not there on any of the marketplaces! This might be a hindrance to not grabbing sales! It's time to start drafting a nice sales strategy for your online store and side-by-side to do all the necessary corrections! Let me know if we can be of any help to you!
