Hey Hipster Jewel,

Marketing methods and store optimization both play a very important role in boosting overall sales and conversions rates. Regarding marketing methods, some effective tips for improving marketing strategies leading to better sales and conversions are as follows:

  • Decrease cart abandonment by optimizing your checkout process. If your checkout process is smooth and trustworthy from start to finish, you will increase conversion rates and decrease cart abandonment.
  • Make your checkout process as easy as possible. Try to get everything on one page. If you have to have several pages, consider showing a progress bar at the bottom of each page so that your customers can visualize how much longer your checkout process will take.
  • If you are selling any type of clothing or accessory, provide a size guide. Not only will this help customers but it will cut back on returns for your business.
  • Be upfront with the customers. Let them know how much they will be paying at the beginning of your check out process. Or charge a flat rate shipping if this is an option for your products.
  • Give the customers the option to keep shopping.
  • Let customers know what kind of payments you accept.

Coming to your store,

  1. A home button should be added to the starting of the main menu for better navigation to the homepage.
  2. "Contact us" should include a contact form as well for better customer interaction.
  3. "About Us" and "Contact Us" should also be a part of the main menu. 
  4. The proper order of arrangement of elements in the main menu is as follows: Home. Hot, (All product categories like bracelets,earrings etc), Blog, About us and Contact us.
  5. The currency converter is a must as you deal with worldwide shipping.
  6. Favicon is missing, which is quite crucial for site identification.
  7. The logo needs a lot of modification. Try adding different color combinations and font styles for a more defined and unique look.
  8. Social links like Facebook, Instagram etc need to be added for better connectivity.
  9. The header template should be used to highlight exciting discounts as well apart from free shipping offers.
  10. 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.
  11.  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 store optimization and improved marketing lead to a lot more sales.

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.

Hello,

 

Have you promoted your products through social media pages like Facebook and Instagram? I am unable to find your store's social media links. Social media marketing mentions to the business of procuring traffic or attention through social media sites.
I suggest you can use Facebook Marketing and Instagram marketing.
In Facebook Marketing
-> Optimize Your Profile Picture and Cover Photo of your company logo with high resolution.
-> Fill Out Your Facebook Bio.
-> Set a Consistent Posting Schedule.
-> Schedule Your Posts at the Optimum Time.
-> Use Video To Attract Your Audience and Target The Right Audience Using Facebook's In-App Targeting Features.
Instagram Marketing
->Instagram business profiles allow your team to optimize your profile, add contact information and your website into the bio section making it much easier for your audience to interact and connect with you.
-> Keep your Instagram profile uniform by keeping your photos within one color scheme. And Use #tags, Hashtags are a big part of Instagram's posts because it allows photos and video content to become searchable on the channel.
-> And i suggest you can use Instagram Stories To Stand Out In The App.
Otherwise, Great work you have done on your website.

 

Thanks,

Appfreaker.

Hey @hansonchoy ,

1. You should add a referral program. It helps in increasing sales and creates brand awareness. You can ask your customers to refer a product to their friends and family. When the product is referred by some known, people tend to purchase the product. The referral program helps in increasing sales. You can give a reward for referring the product. Referral marketing is a great marketing strategy adopted by big brands.

2. You can add a countdown timer to create urgency and it will increase the curiosity amongst customers. It helps in increasing sales. 

3. Add a favicon.

4. Add a newsletter pop-up.

5. Do promotions on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest. It will increase reach. It will take time but you will see the results.

 

If you would like to implement a referral program on your store I would suggest you to install AiTrillion.com. It has all the features in a single app and is a fully integrated app. It is all in one Shopify app. Plus you don't need to install multiple apps. You can check it out. I am sure you will find it useful.

Hey @hansonchoy 

 

Here's a couple of strategies I've used with great success that are super low cost. 

 

1. Test free traffic strategies. This costs time rather than hours, but creating a presence on forums and buiding an audience on social platforms has proven great for me and countless other. Depending on the product, Instagram and Pinterest are great places to provide value through media content, which can then be used to drive traffic to your store through links. I've even used Reddit, which is even more difficult but even more rewarding. Just remember to never blatantly advertise there - Redditors will sniff you out and pick you apart. Look for ways to humanize your brand and connect with the communities there. 

 

2. Use upsell strategies. There's a ton of apps on the Shopify app store to add upsell and cross-sell functionality to your store. You're operating with a 25% profit margin right now, but that can be double with an upsell. Look for products that complement your offer or give the option of a quantiy upsell (discount with more than one item purchase).

 

3. SEO. Appearing on organic search engines takes time to build, but can generate warm traffic once you know how to keep google happy. If you can provide value through blog content on your site, you'll strengthen your branding, build trust and find yourself with opportunity to subtly promote your products in the process. If you've got a knack for writing, the process is entirely free (although time consuming). 

 

Hope these suggestions help. It's always better to rely on a host of different traffic strategies so you're not completely dependant on paid advertising.
