Hope the following suggestions will help you
Congratulations on launching your store! I've taken a look through and I have some feedback for you.
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.
I’d recommend utilizing Shopify’s sales channels for your social media pages. This is going to allow you to tag products that you post on your social media and then have that tag lead to your store. Here is how to implement it for Facebook and Instagram.
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.
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.
Once your logo is finished, 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 an estimated shipping time at checkout. For some people, shipping time can be a deal breaker so they won’t proceed with their purchase without that information.
If you are concerned that displaying longer shipping times will turn people off, I would say that for some it might but long-term, you want happy customers so it's better to say up front, "hey, this could take up to 3-4 weeks to arrive" rather than not giving a shipping time and then getting an email 2 weeks later from an unhappy customer wondering where their package is.
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 think you've got the right idea selling 1-2 products, my one caution would be make sure what you are selling is a winning product. A winning product choice should have these qualities:
We did a video that explains how and where to find winning products that you can watch here:
PS: If you decide to give Ecomhunt a try (one of the methods we recommend for finding winning products), here is our affiliate link: https://www.ecomhunt.com?afmc=2tp

- The home page should flow better. I would recommend setting it out like this. Slideshow Image- Collection- Features products- Testimonials- Newsletter sign up box- Blog Posts.
- Add links in the footer. Add policies, contact us, about us.
- Setup product recommendations on product pages as well as cart pages. Give it a title as 'You may also like'. This will help in upselling.
- That's too much blank space. Don't leave this much blank space.
- Add these tools to your store to maximize customer engagement in your store. It will help to reduce the bounce rate:
