Hi Mitchell! Maggie, a Shopify Partner here :)

Your store looks fantastic! Your images are top quality and the products look amazing. This is a specific niche, which means it will be much easier for you to target the right audience, than if you had a very general product range.

I will address the traffic issues as well, but first I have a small suggestion for your store: on Our Goal page you do feature the text in the form of images - they look awesome by the way. But, Google cannot process images the same way it processes text, therefore it doesn’t read the text within the images. I would recommend uploading the content in the form of text, to make this page Google friendly and help it index and rank your website. Optimize each page for the search engines - please watch this video tutorial How to SEO your Shopify Pages now: http://www.rockpapercopy.com/video-tutorials.html

I would also recommend starting a blog - this is a long term investment into driving the most relevant traffic to your store. Write about the benefits of the wooden sunglasses, why picking wood is better than plastic etc. It will help you create a stronger connection with the visitors and make people trust your expertise. Once they realize the benefits of buying wooden sunglasses, they will be happy to shop from you, as they already trust your knowledge and know where the sunglasses are coming from.

Social media - you open the links in new tabs; that’s perfect. Please check the Instagram link, as it opened on an error page.

SEO score: 47/100

You need more written - and optimized - content to improve your score. Please apply the tips in the video guide suggested above to help you improve your score.

 

Now, to the traffic - you mentioned you are getting a lot of traffic, but it doesn’t translate into sales. This situation happens very often, and it is very easy to resolve. If your visitors come to your website, but they don’t buy, it’s not always a fault of the website, but of the relevancy of the traffic. You see, if you get the traffic from a randomly selected group, it doesn’t increase your chances of selling a specific product as you are offering. In order to improve your conversion rate [sales per visits], you need to get more relevant traffic.

The easiest way to do it is to begin by studying how other of your competitors are promoting their websites, and where do they get their backlinks from. Find other US / Canadian wooden sunglasses retailers and check their backlink profiles. Are they active on the “green” fashion forums? Do they participate in the particular discussion groups? How do they promote their products on social media? Do they run competitions or giveaways? Analyze their current Instagram followers and connect with them - they are your most relevant audience, as they are already interested in the same product as yours. Engage with them and create a rapport [follow them, like / comment on their photos, tag them in some of your posts], in order to get their attention. They will then follow you back on Instagram. Once you build your targeted audience, make sure to post regularly and encourage them to visit your website.

This is an ongoing process, but it’s worth studying this as it can bring much better results than trying to get traffic from ‘anyone’. Please also have a look at this video tutorial: How to Drive more FREE Traffic to Your Website.
