Hi all, I'm fairly new at this, finding my sea legs gradually.
My new store is Places+Things Co.
I'm getting some traffic, not much in the way of sales yet. Starting some advertising on Facebook and Instagram, which at least has a few people looking.
Any comments are welcome. Thanks in advance.
Hey Places And Things,
"New Arrivals" should also be added for keeping customers updated regarding the latest store trends and designs. The contact form is missing in the footer, which is quite crucial for customer interaction. Other essential observations regarding store modification are as follows:
Wish the store reaches the heights of success through store modification.
I think this is the best way of using Debut theme I have seen so far. I didn't realize it was Debut even :D
I assume you have used a page builder, it looks amazing. One can tell right away that the site has been created by someone who has a pure passion. The effort and time that you have put in the site is noticeable, it is very informative home-like and inspiring.
Design wise you nailed, now lets take a look at the functionality of the app.
There a couple of moments I recommend adding or changing to make sure you do not splurge your money on ads and get no sales. (that happens a lot
I recommend adding such features as
-Reviews -to gain Social proof and testimonials. I personally read reviews before paying money for something, and if I liked the item I will leave a review.
-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 customers:)
-The sale you have seems to be a nice deal, however, instead of giving discount for nothing, give them as rewards for completing certain actions on your store ex. for creating accounts, for leaving a review, for sharing your site, for spending money on your site. It is not difficult for a user to do and you will get so many actions on your site, and you are having discounts anyway.
I recommend using Growave for that. It offers Social Login, Reviews, Rewards, Instagram and 6 more essential tools for marketing all in one.
-Do not forget to add Shipping Policy, Terms of Using and other boring things :) They are crucial.
I think that is it from what I have noticed.
Hopefully, I managed to help you, if so please let me know by liking this post,
The best of luck!
Hello @PlacesandThings , Your store looks captivating. All you need to do is maximize engagement on your store which will help you to capture visitors even when they are not on your store and without getting the email address.
1. Add a call to action button in the first fold of the homepage. It increases the chances of getting sales.
2. You need to engage visitors on your store. Add web push notifications where you can send the latest updates through push notifications anytime and without getting their email addresses.
Add a loyalty reward program. It helps in increasing conversions and helps in retaining customers. You can start giving loyalty points on activities like on signing up, allowing for push notifications, visiting a store, leaving a review. This will help you to entice your visitors and will also increase the number of push subscribers, reviews, newsletter subscribers.
If you would like to implement all these features to maximize engagement and conversions on your store I would suggest you to install AiTrillion.com. It has all the essential features in a single app and is a fully integrated app. It is 'All in One' Shopify app. Plus you don't need to install multiple apps. You can check it out. I am sure you will find it useful.
Thanks for taking the time to review my site, I appreciate your comments. All my policies were buried at the bottom of the checkout page by default in the Debut theme, so I just added them to the footer. Still trying to figure out how to get my social feeds on the landing page, which may not be possible in Debut? I would like to add reviews and testimonials, but I'll need some sales first LOL, so I'll have a look at Growwave and other marketing platforms, I'm still doing my research. Much appreciated.
Aizada, thanks for the nice compliments about my site design, that made me smile (and do a little "woo hoo!" at my desk :D ). I've got some experience as a designer, it's the rest of the e-comm stuff I'm still trying to figure out.
You have all made similar comments, so I have some work to do and some changes to make.
The pleasure is mine! Happy to help you.
