Congratulations on your new store.
Here is some feedback:
Your logo on the left side of the homepage looks a little out of place. Try to get rid of the white space beside it and make the banner larger. The font you used for "Get the best" is also not very readable. Try either a different font, or a different colour (maybe white) to make the text more visible.
the text on your banner is not contrasting the banner, and so, it looks a little out of place. Instead, you can put a Shop now button on the banner so that it will redirect you to the catalog page immediately.
make your header sticky, so that it appears even when you have scrolled down. this makes navigation much more easier.
you can add a chatbot to your website, which will help you collect user insights, as well as answer frequently asked questions.
because yours is an apparel store, it is always a good idea to put images of the item from multiple angles. This way, customers will really understand how your product will look.
Try to add more images in the front page, so that people can see that your store has many designs to choose from. You can take the "no professional photographer" part to the about us page, where you can tell them more about you.
Remember to add captions to your pictures.
If you are still wondering how much images will help you out in the long run, you can read more here: Shop the look: When customers are buying more than your product
Add reviews and customer testimonials on the home page. Honestly, people look at reviews more that product description. IF they see 5 other people have good things to say about you, they will trust in your store more and it will help them make the decision to buy from you faster.
That's all from me! Thank you and Best of Luck!
Hope the following suggestions will help you
Congratulations on your store, after spending a few minutes on it I have some recommendations that might be useful for you to improve it.
1. Navigation bar
Your current logo is too big and it takes a lot of spacing which is not necessary. I suggest that you should reduce the logo's size and put it on the left side of your Navigation bar.
You should make your navigation bar horizontal: logo, navigation page, the toolbar on one line.
2. Hero banner
Your current hero banner's image is not related to your store, I suggest you should change your image into your lookbook or a banner of your store. Customers will know exactly what product you're selling.
The contents in your hero banner should be clear and straightforward for anyone to encourage them to click on the CTA.
Add the CTA button to lead customers to a specific page to make the purchase in your store.
3. Font family
The current font is might not suitable for your store, I suggest you should change to the Poppin font, it's really beautiful.
4. Product Details
- Product Image should have some realistic image for customers could have an overview of it.
- Color: you can use a color swatch for a better view instead of a select dropdown
That's all recommendations I'd like to suggest to you. Moreover, you can check this article to optimize your Homepage and design it better.
Hello @marantd, I hope you are doing good! here are some suggestions:
- On the collection page, display products in a grid view instead of a list view.
- There is a blank space in the header.
- The home Page should flow better. I would recommend setting it out like this. Slideshow Image- Collection List- New arrivals, Bestsellers- Testimonials- Newsletter sign up box- Instagram Feed.
- Add a call to action button on the banner image.
- Setup announcement bars or timers to promote your offers on the store. AiTrillion has pre-designed templates of announcement bar, timer & sales motivator bars.
- Setup a reward program for giving points and let customers redeem on their next purchase.
- Make sure to enable automatic workflow emails/push for abandoned cart, win back old customers, welcome email, purchase follow-up, or browse abandoned customers.
- Setup Product recommendations on product pages as well as cart page.
If you would like to implement the above features/ customer engagement or marketing tools in your store. I would recommend you to install the all in one Shopify app AiTrillion. I am sure you will find it useful.
Hope this Helps!
Hey there, @marantd!
Welcome to Shopify! You’ve put in a lot of hard work to make Marantd where it is today, but there are still a few things to do to make it even better.
Let’s start with the top, the very top - You need a Favicon. Use your logo. While we’re here, think about what you want to use for phrasing in the tab. Right now it shows, “Clothing - Marantd.” You can make this pop even more.
Next, the homepage
You’re on the right path here, Mark! I can’t wait to see how your business grows. When you see how your visitors use your website, you’ll be able to make changes that improve their experience and turn them into customers. Lucky Orange has heatmaps, session recordings and more with a free trial (no credit card needed) and plans that start at US $10/month.
I hope this helps! Good luck!
Cheers - Danny
