Hey @!

 

Cal here from Shopify, thanks for reaching out to us. I've taken a look at your store and you've done a great job revamping it! I have a few points that you could consider if you're looking to refine the great work even further: 

 

1) Delay the newsletter popup, give your customers a chance to look at the store before you suggest signing up for marketing updates. 

 

2) Some images in the About Us would be great! Either some modeled shots of the clothing or staff photographs to give the shop a more personable feel.

 

3) The product photography is excellent. Really, really good! I would love to see some of those clothes in motion though, have you considered a lookbook video or similar for some of your products? 

 

4)  Because you are willing to ship internationally, have you considered having a currency converter app on the store? There are lots of options in our app store here: (http://bit.ly/2SyXQs6). 

 

You've done a great job with this site! Congratulations. What sort of marketing strategy are you planning for the site?

Hi xylene122,

 

Your store looks nice and the products are good.

 

I have reviewed your website briefly and here are some of my feedbacks that you can implement on the site easily.

 

  1. Make sure your social media pages opened at the new tab instead of the same tab. This will ensure your customers stay on your website while looking at your social presence.
  2. Make sure all your product images are the same size and dimensions. This is going to help tie your site together
  3. Place description in the right hand side of the product image section, currently lot of space is wasting and its adding additional page scroll when you add description under image section. Like - https://simolux-8.myshopify.com/products/pike-boots-combat-boot
  4. The default search landing page https://www.velvetgoldmine.com.au/search?q= is bit off, I mean it's empty. You can show products on that page as well by simply updating the default search on the website with different search solution.
  5. Lastly, I would strongly recommend to replace the default search with advanced search like Sparq which allows synonyms, advanced custom tag filters, spelling correction and other such feature. Visitors with search are high intent users and their conversion rate is higher than normal users.

 

I hope my feedback will help you converting visitors into customers.

 

May it rains customers and orders,

Neha :)

Here are some ways to make your store even better and make people want to purchase.

 

Homepage Feedback

    1. I would delay the 25% off popup to one minute to give me a bit more time to look around the homepage

    2. Consider adding a Featured Product section on the homepage (i.e. XY Of The Month). Pick one products and tell people why you picked it and what makes it great

    3. I would look at adding content to you category pages. This will help you sell more product and rank higher is search


Product Page  Feedback

    1. I would tweak the layout of your product page as the product title, price, add to card..ect are all higher up on the product page then they need to be. Especially with the fact you have tons of white space below this section.

    2. Add a longer product description as this is how you convince someone to buy on your site. Plus it helps with SEO and ranking in organic search

    3. Add a section for customer reviews when you get them. This helps build social proof

Hi @xylene122

 

Good to see your redesign. I think others have mostly covered the important points that stand out. I just thought about suggesting some stores which I came across recently, from where you could take inspiration. I like https://www.tluxe.com and https://littersf.com/. You can have a look and see if that helps you!

  1. Make sure your social media pages opened at the new tab instead of the same tab. This will ensure your customers stay on your website while looking at your social presence.
  2. Make sure each product has 3 - 5 images as that will help someone decide if they want to purchase.
  3. Make sure all your product images are the same size and dimensions. This is going to help tie your site together

Hi @xylene122 

 

Your store looks amazing, and your products are really adorable.

 

How about giving your users an option to search for products by an image or a real-time picture by using their phone camera? It would be new user experience. Moreover, the type of products you are selling is completely being purchased based on its style, pattern, color, and aesthetics, which a user cannot put into exact words to type in the search box and find it from your catalog. Adding such a feature allows them to search the product by an image which they found in social media, TV or from the street. Try the "Visual Search +" app from the Shopify app store. This AI-powered app helps your customer to search through your catalog with the image they are uploading and give them most matching results instantly. This helps you,

  1. Faster customer conversion
  2. Increase catalog discovery
  3. Boost sales from social media
