Hi Thomas,

Your site's fantastic - niche, full of personality and has great products. I can see it being a success. 

Niche sites like yours are easy and cheap to market because you know exactly who to target.

I imagine you’ve got lots of funny ideas to promote the site – like, “The daily life of an ant” videos with voice overs. Maybe it's just my humour but I imagine that to be hilarious. A bit like Ozzy Man Reviews

Out of curiosity, how were you thinking of marketing your store? Posting in Facebook groups, forums, etc?

My recommendations:

There’re lots of call-to-actions on your homepage (Social icons, receive our latest newsletter, message us). I presume your primary goal is sales? Then I would remove all of your products and social icons from your homepage. Your homepage is there to build desire. On your homepage have great pictures and videos of your products in use without prices. Have a bold call-to-action above the fold titled “Shop now”. The primary goal of the homepage is to get visitors to click that “Shop now” button. I would reserve the social icons for the order confirmation page or at the bottom of blog posts. For inspiration check out Luxy Hair’s store.

Also, instead of offering a 15% discount to everyone, reserve it for people who subscribe to your newsletter (as an incentive).

These are just little things and I wouldn’t worry about them. Just keep experimenting and see what works.

I hope this is the type of feedback you were looking for,

I love your website! Great looking font! ? 

Your store seems well put together. I browsed your website so quickly and there may be some things that can be improved,...

When I quickly took a look, I noticed that on the text 'About your company' states "feedbacks." Feedback is a non-count noun. As such, it has no plural form. Hope that helps. :)

Your soon is very cute! ?

Guck luck to you!

Hey Thomas, the site is very cool. I didn't even know that this could be a niche until now. If you'll be able to get the word out to the community it could be a really successful site. 

You did very good work with the site so I have only a few tips.

First is to get more pictures. You sell a modular product. The best way to sell that kind of stuff is to actually show what you can build with the product. Get more specific pictures of the products. Complete with ats and everything. If you'll combine it with Instagram it will also be a great way to attract customers. Just connect with the community and actually show them what awesome worlds you can build with your products.

Make your social links open in new tabs. It will help you keep your visitors attention on your site. Here is how to do that.

Use retargeting. People often come to store like yours only to look, find inspiration or for information. So most people won't make a purchase during the first visit. Retargeting will let you engage those people and bring them back once they are ready to make a purchase. You can check out ROI Hunter Easy app for that. 

Hope it helps.

Hi @Thomas_Probst ,

 

You have a great website and it's kind of interesting to visit websites with an unusual theme. It really engaged me for more than 15 mins and that's what I call a good website. Even though it is not my intent to buy products for ants yet it's so compelling that I kept on visiting each page until I reached the checkout.

 

I hope that you receive good sales for these products. If you wish to get an app built on the same theme of your Store so that you can make your engagement more user-friendly then you can check our MageNative App on the Shopify Store. Also, you can start selling these products on the Etsy marketplace to earn extra revenue as well.

 

Good luck and hope you achieve good sales.
