Hey Virginia Custom Goods,

Home button needs to be added at the beginning of the main menu to ensure smooth navigation back to the homepage. Apparel has been wrongly spelled as "Apperal" in the main menu. Other significant observations regarding store improvement are as follows:

  1. The logo signifies no meaning or relevance. Kindly change the logo and create something relevant to your store name and purpose.
  2. A header template should be created for highlighting discounts or amazing shipping offers if any.
  3. Favicon is missing, which is quite crucial for site identification.
  4. I would love to see an Account login/sign-in system, as it is a must for an ecommerce.
  5. Login, when added, should be placed beside the cart and search bar for a more systematic header view.
  6. An "About Us" section needs to be added to the main menu and footer for improving site familiarity.
  7. "Contact us" section should be added along with a contact form for increasing customer interaction.
  8. You should add terms and conditions and FAQ’s if any, again these also help in building search engine content. 
  9. Proper discounts are a must for better customer engagement.
  10. Seperate "Sale" section needs to be added for all discounted products.
  11. Adding reviews below every product help in improving customer choice. 
  12. Instagram images and testimonials are a must for better brand promotion.
  13. You can also install one of the most popular app Growwave which is all in one marketing platform that helps store owners increase conversions with ease.
  14. Finally, I would also recommend replacing the default search with an advanced search like Sparq which allows synonyms, advanced custom tag filters, spelling correction, and other such features. Visitors with search are high intent users and their conversion rate is higher than normal users.
    Check out the features live here.
    You can use Sparq free trial for as many products in your store. After the trial period, you can enjoy with Sparqs Free Starter Plan for upto 1000* products.

May the store optimization help you climb the ladder of success.

Neha :)

Sparq is a fast and beautiful search solution for Shopify store owners. It allows store owners to upgrade their default search to an extremely fast, more user friendly and feature rich search

Hi Phill

Firstly, i have to say your page look quite similar and i think you should invest more content to increase conversion rate of it . Here is my advices :

  • Put your logo to header instead of hello image
  • Your background color is nice but it quite dark and i will effect to readability of text, consider to add white background to your text block or change the text color
  • Your homepage content is quite simple, your can refer some design / layout here and apply it to your business 
  • You should add some description and CTA to your slider / category image to urger people click on them
  • The contract of the ADD TO CART and your background is low , it makes the button quite blur
  • Apply sale period to your product and add countdown timer to them to increase FOMO effect
  • Add more content to your product page such as : product feature , competitive advantages of your store , FAQ ... can increase conversion rate

Hope my advices can help. Best of luck to your business !

  • However, I kindly suggest you improve your color scheme. I usually use Pinterest for inspiration, try "color palette vintage/retro".
  • Product name is quite long, so I recommend you shorten them. For example: "2019 Men's New Summer Personalized T-Shirt Wolf Print T-Shirt 3D Men's T-Shirt Novelty Animal Tops T-Shirt Men's Short Sleeve" to "2019 Men's Novelty Animal T-shirt". Long names cause visitors hard to skim through the collection, then reduce the chances that they might impress with your product. 
  • Adding social proof: those can help assure visitors about your product's quality and make your site more persuasive.
  • Make sure your content is displayed correctly and check it on mobile. Screen Shot 2020-02-07 at 5.38.51 PM.png

Few more ideas and good luck!

Hey @Vcg2020 ,

1. Add quick links in the footer like privacy policy, shipping policy, refund policy. There is a font discrepancy. 

2. Add a call to action on the images on the homepage.

3. Home Page should flow better. I would recommend setting it out like this. 

-Slideshow Image 

-Collection List 

-Newsletter Sign Up 

-Popular Products ( 4-8 Max ) I would only use 4

-Display testimonials or reviews.

4. You need to engage your visitors coming on your site by giving loyalty reward points which will increase repeat purchase and customer lifetime value, chatbot, email marketing with automation, web push notification, reviews and many other. It will help you to run your store smoothly and decrease the bounce rate.  If your store is engaging then it will help you to reduce Customer Churn Rate i.e percentage of customers who stop purchasing from your brand. It will reduce the bounce rate and will boost your sales.

 

If you would like to maximize engagement on your store and implement all these on your store I would suggest you to install AiTrillion.com. It has all the 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.
