Hi guys,

I'm a fashion designer and going to sell my own stuff. I have my stuff already. The biggest problem is that I know too little things about selling online, so I think I will go for small first. I'm here for some suggestion about themes, store setup, what theme should I use for my store? Marketing on Facebook & Instagram..., how many money should I spend?

Thanks so much

Hey Alice! Welcome.

My #1 suggestion is to run Facebook ads. Best conversions out there!

Ask yourself: Does your copywriting have clarity, brevity and differentiation?

Should be a great starting point. 

Good luck!

Start with a theme for clothing. You are not aware of cost so I suggest that you go for a free theme first.

I would love to invite you to try my SalesHunter theme, I create it with all sales boost element (such as countdown clock, sales notification, customize cart page...). And it's free.

You can also try some Shopify themes for clothing, all are free. Just go ahead and give it a try.

Good luck on your store :)

Hi,

First off wishing you much luck with your store!  I know as a lover of apparel and shopping..when I shop online I want to see high quality images, all the important sizing details, images from all angles. Be as transparent as possible.  This to me is one of the most important aspects of selling clothes online..since you cannot see or touch the product..people need to know every detail about it.  I would also  think about offering a discount off your first purchase. Start a newsletter and you can get people to sign up and give them that discount offer for doing so.  I would also set up your website with an abandonment app..so when people are about to navigate away from your store before making a purchase...a pop up appears with an enticing offer.  I use Exit Offers I usually do a percentage off or free shipping..it has definitely helped my conversion numbers.   Wishing you all the luck!!!

Hi Alice,

You will need some quality product shots but there's no need to set up an expensive studio or hire a pro photographer at first.

We outlined some steps for you to follow if you want to take your own clothing photos here:

Best of luck.

Having your own product designs is great and ideal becuase you are unique. Agree quality images important especially for fashion. If you have a designer's eye you can take great ones with your mobile and there are loads of really good editing tools.

Be careful to research first thoroughly before setting up your theme, apps and ads. When you're new often you get approached from other businesses wanting to help but eseentially they want your money. Just be discerning.

You will get many people suggesting ways to get fast traffic but beware this is not always targeted traffic. You need targeted traffic; people who are interested in your product and potential buyers.

Social media marrketing is not enough on its own and depends on your products. Facebook and Instagram may not always get the sales you want but will get good exposure at the least. Also depends how good your ads and message are. Advertising offline is good too.

With Shopify apps, you can't have them all and so many will be recommended to you. Take care to research them well, trial free ones first to stay within your budget or it can get very expensive.

Would definitely suggest to do paid google advertising without a doubt but again take care to learn the basics first so you don't burn though your budget. 

Don't expect immediate results but persevere.

Good luck!

Selecting a store theme will depend on what type of items you are going to sell, chic wear, accesories, men fashion, etc. the theme should match with the mindset of your customers. Dont make it too gaudy. You can easily set up your store on Shopify without any technical expertise and if needed you can xchoose you install apps as per your need. Marketing is toughest part. Many options, like Influencer Marketing - You must be having network of designers and models, make use of them. If you can get a coverage of your store with design in any of magazine it would be better. Word of mouth will work good if you have a botique collection. Invest in SEO in nominal terms, just to get at least first or second page, though i must not discourage but internet is flooded with fashion websites. For paid ads, use carousal ads on facebook. lastly if you want to increase sales channels contact CEDCOMMERCE.
