Tips to increase conversion rate

4 0 0

Hi, I own the site "". We sell Padel accessories which is a big sport in (mainly) Spain. 

I was wondering if anyone could come with feedback to increase our conversion rates.


Only looking for feedback on the store, not marketing right now.

I have some ideas:



Your social media links in the footer open in the same page, instead of a new tab. This will bounce users from your site, lowering conversions and increasing bounce rate (which is a factor in SEO).


Open any external links in a new tab. You can use the attribute target="_blank" on the <a> tags of those links.



Create a compelling "about" page that shows your passion for the topic and connects your brand with the target audience. I've done heat map testing and found that people click on About page a lot if it's in the header - this means people want to know who they're buying from.



Set up an email capture form. I like to put one in the footer, and then also either a) small slide in box in the corner that triggers after 30 - 60 seconds or b) an exit intent popup.


Email is typically the highest converting channel, so utilizing a targeted email list is a good way to raise overall conversion rates (and free traffic).


If you'd like some more tips, I wrote a guide with 20 CRO tactics I've personally used on Shopify sites:

Huge thank you for this answer, will take a look at the guide aswell.


Was just wondering, how did you make the heat map that you mentioned?

Sure no probs 🤙


For heat maps I use hotjar. I also like the poll feature too for surveys / data gathering.

Working with a few stores in Europe. The biggest area for your store right now is figuring out your brand and branding. Right now you store does not standout in a unique way Here are some ways to make your store even better and make people want to purchase.


Homepage Feedback

    1. Carousels / sliders have been proven to lowers conversions rates ...limit how much you use the one on your site. No one is going to wait around to see what is on each sliders

    2. I would clean up the design of your homepage as it's disorganized right now. The brand logos should be higher on the page. You should tell your brand store on the homepage and not just show tons of product. People will click into your store if they want to

    3. Maybe I missed it but add links to your footer for return/refund, and shipping policy. I didn't see these pages on your site and they are ones customers will look for

    4. I would consider only having 3 SKUS / row on your collection pages and make each image bigger

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

    6. I would have the Brand drop down as it's own menu item. Or just link to them in the footer, since you only sell a handful of brand

Product Page  Feedback

    1. 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

    2. Make sure all your product images are the same size and dimensions and the same style/brand. This is going to help tie your site together

    3. If you have a buyers guide, would be great to link to that on key product and collection pages. Help people figure out what racket they want. This could also be good content to rank in the future.


Your store just needs some tweaks to take it up a level. Hope you found this helpful, if so please click "like" below to let me know.

Hi @Padelexperterna 


Very nice store, I love the color scheme that you went for. First impression is of a huge importance and you totally nailed it. The hero banner image is amazing. 


-Add images on the blog section on the homepage and the blog page itself 


-The sale you have seems to be a nice deal, however, people always need to know why you have made such sales, is it a seasonal sale? or is it because there is no demand on it? Does that mean the product is bad? 

Instead of giving discount for nothing, give them as rewards for completing certain actions on your store ex. for creating accounts, for leaving a review, for sharing your site, for spending money on your site. It is not difficult for a user to do and you will get so many actions on your site, and you are having discounts anyway.


-I recommend choosing one or two colors and sticking with them. I see that you have green, red and orange going on. Maybe leave black and green or black and black and orange?


-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


Social media has become a huge thing nowadays. I highly recommend taking advantage of that and adding Instagram galleries on your homepage. It will help drive traffic from your site on to your account and vice versa.


For implementing all that on your store you can use apps, try to reach for ones that have more than one function within. I recommend using Growave, because if offer 10 marketing tools, such as Rewards, Reviews, Instagram, Social login etc all in one.  It can also be translated to any language easily. 


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


I wish you the best of luck!

- Visual Reviews with automated emails
- Loyalty&Rewards
- Wishlist
- Instagram

I did vist your store and noticed you have a wide range of products.

Adding to @DuaneBrown's comments I have below suggestions:

1. Include the product type/category in each of your product page URL and title for better SEO.

2. You can as well as categorize your products based on the Brand.

3. You can use free keyword tools such as UberSuggest to add possible keywords to your product.


Hope this was helpful

I have gone through your site. Though it looks good, there are quite a few things missing on your store which if added can really make a lot of difference to the user experience, conversion rate and your overall sales.

Logo & Favicon -- Your logo should highlight your brand name. Add a favourite icon so users can locate your webpage easily.

  2. Footer -- Optimize your footer with more professional and functional look and also highlight your newsletter sign up so people who follow your brand will receive more updates about promotions and sales. There are legal policy pages which are missing in the footer that must be included for authenticity and security purpose



A lot can be done to your homepage to make it more informative & attractive.

Hey Padelexperterna,

The conversion rate is influenced a lot by the overall store look and appearence. Some of the tips for store optimization are as follows:

  1. Using high-quality images and videos on product pages, offering limited-time coupon codes, using cart abandonment software and the checkout process should be clean.
  2. A "home" button is a must at the starting of the main menu of any ecommerce store.
  3. The addition of the "Sale" section to the main menu will help to keep all discounted items in one place.
  4. To improve customer decisiveness, product reviews should be added below each item.
  5. Testimonials tend to strengthen customer trust and belief.
  6. Social connectivity can be further enhanced if you add social links like "Twitter and Linked in" to the site footer as well.
  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.

May the store receive an increase in the overall conversion rate very soon.

Neha :)

Sparq is a fast and beautiful product filter and search solution for Shopify store owners. It allows store owners to add a custom tag, metadata, or variant based filters on their collection page and upgrade their default search to an extremely fast, more user-friendly and feature-rich search.
