Hey, i am pretty new to shopify ( been working on it for probably 10 days now) and i have finally finished my store! I am really happy with how it looks and everything, but i would love if someone with experience could check out my store and give me some feedback on what i did right and what i should improve!
note: i have started facebook marketing with $10 cap everyday:)
my store is: Gymresistancebandz.com
Congratulations on the launch of your store! I've taken a look through and I have some feedback for you.
Your logo is one of those things that holds a lot of weight in how professional or unprofessional your store looks. I would highly recommend having a professional logo done up for your store, it’s a worthy investment. This is a service we offer so if you are interested, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Once your logo is finished, you can match the fonts and colors in your store to your logo. This is going to level up your store even more and make you look very professional.
I’d recommend adding a favicon so that your visitors can find you quickly when they have multiple tabs open in their browser. We did a video on how to upload a favicon that you can watch here:
You need to add in your shipping policy, return policy, privacy and terms of service. Shopify has made this extremely easy, you can add them with a click of a button (except for shipping policy because it will vary depending on the store). After they are auto generated you can take a read through each one and adjust them as needed. Here is a video showing how to add them:
I would highly recommend that you encourage your customers to leave a review on the products they purchase (your current reviews aren't able to expand/be clicked on to read). Positive reviews are very valuable, they add a lot of trust to your store. We did a video showing a free review app you can use and how to set it up:
I noticed you don’t have any social media links listed. Having an active social media presence adds trust to your brand. If there’s nothing about your brand online, it’s a red flag to your visitors. Potential customers are going to research before purchasing and one of the first places they are going to check is social media. Highly recommend getting on social media and adding those links to your Shopify store.
As you know, resistance bands can be purchased offline in hundreds retail stores as well as online through thousands and thousands of online stores. When a person is searching for resistance bands in Google, big companies with massive marketing budgets are who is showing up in search results and who you are competing with for customers.
Now, a person can complete IF they give people a reason to purchase from them vs. the other guys. An example of this might be someone who sells locally, their "reason" as to why you should purchase from them vs the other guy is because they are local and a lot of people are passionate about shopping local. In addition to this, they can also get products to their customers faster and can offer incentives such as free local delivery.
I would think about all your "whys" and what sets you apart and use that in your marketing and in the text in your store.
