Hello, I have come to the forums for help on my family's store a few times now.
Each time I get extremely helpful information, and I have implemented much of it into my store.
There is one thing I cannot add however.
Many people are recommending me to get reviews and testimonials to bring trust to the store. This would be great and I would 100% do it,
but since my store is extremely new and hasn't had a sale yet. (It is about 5 days old) I don't have any customers to get a review from.
Is it just a matter of time until I start to gain sales to use for testimonials or should I try to get around this problem. (If so, how?)
(Also, if there are any problems you see with the site. Please point them out to me.)
Reviews and testimonials really depend on the nature of your store and the products you sell. You might be able to get around that.
What that means is product reviews are more suited for drop shipping items. While it might be better suited for you to have some general reviews via a different program to build up trust.
You didn't post a link to your website yet, so let me know when you do and I can take a look at it.
