Hello there!

I made a thread a few days ago asking for feedback and I did get great advice. I implemented almost all of them and made a few changes to my store.

How's it looking now?

I'm just at the very beginning, I didn't run any ads yet.

Hi @ThrusterStaff 

I would love to provide some recommendations for your store. By the way, I love your products and your store looks so professional!

 

DESIGN

Your store design is pretty good, includes in the arrangement sections, the spacing between the elements inside and other sections. However, I have some suggestions:

 

1, Testimonial

- People will trust more if they can see the product's reviews and that's why I recommend a Testimonial section for your store. You can add product's reviews under every product or make it like a collection like that2020-04-01 09.25.10.gif

2, Color of the footer

- In my opinion, the font colour of the heading and text in the footer is not suitable for the background colour. If you set the white color, then you need a background color that highlights the text.

3, No links

"Link to all our blog posts - Click me!". Click me doesn't have any link. You can check again

 

4, Blank

- You should not leave a blank like this. You can add an image here

PAGE SPEED

Page speed is one of the very important factors for a good online store. Basically, the page speed of your store on the desktop device is pretty good, but you should notice the page speed on the mobile device as well. 

There are some images that need to be optimized

They are just some of my comments. I've gotta leave now. But if you have more questions on other pages type, you can leave your question is this topic, I'll be sure to answer :)

Thank you for your reply mate, I appreciate it!
Since I have no customers yet, getting testimonals is a bit problematic. It's on my bucket list since the start.
When you wrote optimizing pictures, what did you mean? How can one optimize the loading speed of a picture?
Again, I appreciate the time you took to check the site out!

 Hi @ThrusterStaff 

 

The site overall looks decent. Massage gun has become quite popular lately, so you should be ready for some competition. Since you offer different brands, I think you have an advantage over the sites that offer only one type of that tool. 

 

I have also heard a lot of influencers talk about it, so it is a great product to sell:) 

-Here are a couple of things that you might want to put into consideration: 

Implement an opportunity to log in and sign up using Social Media account. We all have accounts at least in one social media. And if I have an opportunity to create an account just with one click, I will do it. having an easier way to Sign in will help you gather customer base. The most valuable thing for a company is the customer

 

-90% of people read reviews before purchasing an item. I personally do not read the description too much, I go straight on to the reviews section because that is a social proof. In my opinion that is an essential of every site. I highly recommend (almost insist) and adding that feature on your site. 

 

For adding the functions above you can use several apps. However, if you want to get all of them at once just with a couple of clicks, try  Growave.

We have 10 great features -Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards, Social Login, Instagram, Discounts etc. 

There is a free plan available also, we are offering an extended trial on the COVID-19 period. 

 

 Hopefully, I managed to help you. If so, please let me know by liking this post. 

 Take care and stay healthy <3

Hey Thrusteril,

The store looks quite "professional" with some changes to add on. The following changes need to be done:

  1. Create a "unique header template" and use "catchy taglines" like  "Last Chance! Free shipping on all orders ends today" OR "Ends Today! 20% Off Friends & Family" for highlighting amazing discounts and free shipping offers respectively.
  2. The section Who are we" can be made more "expressive" by adding certain "images" and a "detailed description" as well.
  3. "Facebook is the largest online platform in the world where you can connect with your market and audience".So, adding it in the footer social links is a great idea.But, you still need to add Instagram, Twitter and Linked In to the site footer as well as they are a great source of advertising as well.
  4. The "Quick links" section of the footer should include "privacy policy, shipping policy etc instead of (Home, Percussion tools etc) which are already a part of the header menu.
  5. "Gpay, Shoppay, Amazon pay", if added, to the checkout payment methods would help in providing alternate payment options to customers.
  6. Filters are very important for customers in order to identify the correct product from the huge catalog. So, you should look for advanced filter options for your store.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 Sparq’s Free Starter Plan for upto 1000* products.

 

Wish the new advancement leads to better changes in the store performance.

Neha :)

Thank you for your comment, mate.


1. I do see a value in it, but I also see how it can jeopardize my business. You see, I don't sell discounted items and I don't go for the lowest price on the market - You can clearly see I didn't mention price as a benefit of buying from me. There's a reason, since I want to build a brand. These are dropshipped items, although the brand that advertises them (Thruster) should be somewhat respectable and shouldn't appear like a cheap market stall. I might implement these discounts in the future for sure, just not as a main marketing strategy, because my price isn't and won't ever be the lowest on the market.

 

4. It actually had these, but then it didn't include the FAQ, since Shopify works with pre-created menus and not sole links, that means I could have my header menu or my legal menu etc. I chose to put the main menu + the FAQ since the legal manu is accessed just below that, through Shopify's legal pages section of the Theme. I mean where it says "Powered by Shopify".

 

5. I'm sure, but since I'm not yet a legal business, I can't use any payment gateway that isn't PayPal Express. This means in the future, after getting a sale or two, I'll create an LLC (or the equivalent of an LLC in my country), then I'll be able to use proper payment gateways.

 

6. I agree, but since my product selection is very narrow, it's not critical right now. I'll sure add them in the future.

 

7. I already use AiTrillion, but I'll check Growave.

 

Whatever I didn't address, I agree 100%!

Thank you for taking your time and answering me, mate.
