Hey guys, I am launching my store tomorrow at noon and I would love to get some feedback and opinions from some outside unbiased eyes. If you have some time just check it out and let me know what you think. I am opened to all criticism. Thanks in advance for your time :) Jupitersonestopshop.com
Solved! Go to the solution
I would say :
In the top menu (header) add :
Your Collections/Catalog + FAQ + Contact Us + About Us
In the botton menu : Your Collections/Catalog + The differents Policies + FAQ + About/Contact Us
Everything looks pretty empty but the website looks good, just too empty for me.
Btw, if you can review mine i would appreciate : www.apexlegensau.myshopify.com
Jason here from Shopify Support. Thanks again for the shout out. Truly appreciate it!
I love your store's color scheme. It's edgy and modern which speaks about your brand really well. It makes a strong impression. Since you're going to launch very soon, here's The Essential Shopify Store Launch Checklist. Even though when I took a tour around your store, I was fairly certain you've done your own checking, but it's never a bad idea to be over-prepared for the big event. By going over this list, it'll ensure your launch as smooth as possible.
These are the main points I have for you. Some of them are larger than the other but don't get detour by it. I see great potential in your store.
Now on to something that's going to come right at you soon. Have you thought about which digital marketing strategy you going to focus on first? Feel free to share with me! I'd be happy to offer you useful resources to help you grow your business.
As always, if you need anything or have any questions, feel free to reply in the thread or simply give me a shout. I'd love to help out! Don't forget to quickly skim through the checklist I mentioned at the beginning of this post. Keep me posted on how the launch goes!
All the best,
First impression.... nice visuals.... seems to imply you're some kind of 7-11 convenience store but online?
But I scroll down and you're starting to tell me about pets, cosmetics, phones... all kinds of stuff.
Really kind of confused about your lack of focus and clear expertise on a given type of product.
Congratulations on the launch! Kudos on making some adjustments! Again, just like I've mentioned in the other post, it's a continuous journey because your business will evolve with time, so will the designs and contents.
Great question. Whether if a general store or a niche store is more likely to succeed in the dropshipping model has been a long debate. If you look through various stores, there're huge successes in both models.
Here're a few points that can explain this a little better:
Keep in mind that this is your store. You're the owner and can adjust it until you find what works for you the best. If you're strong with digital marketing, a general store can certainly thrive. If you aren't as strong and with a smaller marketing budget to start with, try to edit your products and decide whom you want to attract. It'll help you grow your business more effortlessly and eventually it can grow into a general store.
Feel free to reach out at any time. I'm here rooting for you!
Hey Jason thanks so much for the feedback. I ended up having a great launch and a lot of people liked the site. All the things you pointed out made a lot of sense and I already started fixing the product titles and descriptions. I also went on to fix the fonts and it really made a dramatic difference on the readability and overall flow of the site. So again, thank you for that. The only thing that I'm finding a bit difficult is getting the external links to open up in another tab, I tried adding that code in and it didn't work for my theme. If there is any other pointers you have or any ideas you think i should implement into my page I'd love to hear it.
Also in regards to marketing I currently have an Instagram page and a Facebook page that I plan on consistently running ads on. I have 2 ads up on instagram running and 2 on facebook and I am also looking to start some google ads as well. Im just trying to see what the numbers look like now and go from there. Do you have any advice or suggestions in regards to the marketing aspect? I feel like the big task was getting the site done now its all fine tuning and most importantly marketing and I'd love to hear your take on that aspect of things and see if I could implement some of your knowledge to my marketing strategy.
That's fantastic! I'm so happy that your launch went without a glitch. It's a true testament to the preparation that you've done! I'm, again, glad that you've found my suggestions useful.
I'm so happy that you've started the largest task we've talked about. Remember to divide and conquer so you don't get burnt out through the process. I can help you out with getting the external links to open in another tab. If you'd like my help, simply let me know so I can send an authentication email to you and forward your request to our theme support team on your behalf.
There isn't much I'd tweak for your store just yet. It's nice to see how our work plays out for a week or two first. Though, one thing I'd challenge you is to come up with more suitable names for Collection List and Featured Collection on your home page. Just like how you coined the term Best Sellers on the main menu. More shopper-focused/sales-driven terms can help you stand out. Because your store has that 24/7 convenient store yet edgy vibe, try to think outside of the box and make the titles attention-grabbing. Feel free to brainstorm with your friends or perhaps do a little research on what your competitors are doing.
Thank you so much for sharing your marketing strategies clearly in the public. This allows me to offer more tailored suggestions. In your case, if you're still somewhat new, I recommend you interchange the ads. For example, one week with Facebook and one week with Instagram. The reason behind this is that not only you get to monitor your ads more closely and determine how effective they are, but it also helps you spread out your marketing budget. This way, just in case if the ad isn't too effective, you aren't spending too much money on it. Remember to continue tweaking your ads along the way according to the analytics you receive.
What I suggest the next is potentially quite personal. I find that Google Adwords require a bigger budget to play with. Typically, unless you've done some researches already, I recommend you focus on Facebook, Instagram, and email marketing first. For Instagram and email marketing strategy, I encourage you to check out E-commerce Email Marketing 101 and Grow Your Business with Instagram from Shopify Academy. If you're a reader, come check out Shopify's Facebook marketing blog and Instagram marketing blog. There are great updated posts on various approaches on how you can scale up your ads.
Keep me posted on whether or not if you'd like me to send the authentication email to you!
