My sister and I just started an online business selling hair and beauty products. The site officially launched last Friday 9 days ago. We have had around 400 people going through the website however only 2 sales. We are completely new to this line of work. Any tips or suggestions are most welcome! Any edits suggested for our website too. glowsis.uk

Wishing you all the best for your coming store journey.
Congratulations on your store page! It's quite well done. I like the minimal theme that you have selected because it keeps the focus on the products themselves. Most things on the store have been done right. I saw a couple of things that could be made better though, so I thought I'd share them with you.
Do let me know if this is useful for you.
Hope to hear from you soon! Till then, good luck and do stay safe!
Hello @Marixo82 ,
I just had a look at your store, your store looks great. I have a few suggestions for you hope they might help you.
There are fewer products in your store please try to add more products that will help your customers to find more options and select the best one for them. If you are a dropshipper then there are many apps that help you to dropship products.
I think aliexpress would be the perfect website to dropship products into your store and sell them as it has products for a lower price compared to all other sites.
To dropship products from aliexpress I would suggest you use the droppersstop app.
Droppersstop is one of the best-emerging apps in Shopify
I hope our feedback helps you.
Hyde here from Shopify. Great work!
Starting a site is not necessarily easy, especially if you're new to it, and you've done a fantastic job. I do have a few suggestions though, which I feel may help.
First off, as a new brand, you'll want to introduce yourself to visitors as robustly and engagingly as possible. So I'd recommend bringing your "About Us" page further up your homepage, either to the main menu (instead of the Footer menu where it currently is) or to a section on your homepage:
I also suggest expanding on your mission statement and purpose:
Here's what an About Us page should contain!
You want to bear in mind that visitors and customers still like to feel they're engaging with a personality, with a human entity behind the brand. So consider how you might personalize the experience for your customers. Could you expand on who you are, what your history is, what it is that moves you, and drives you to do what you do?
Then you'll want to consider how you're going share your message with the world beyond your website:
- Create blogs this is super important and here's why.
- Add a video to your store - people respond to moving images and this is why it's important.
I hope this helps!
All the best, Hyde.
