I have created a website, and done all the steps I believe in what I am supposed to have done, it’s been almost a month and still no sales. I need help and advice. I have had creators working on my site and the marketing end to drive people to my site but still nothing… what am I doing wrong?

Hello, @Djchic!

 

Working up to get your first sale is a journey that is unique to each merchant, and there is not set time limit before which it has to happen, so take your time and go at your own pace.

 

From what you are describing, it sounds like you are working hard and taking all the right steps. 

 

You mentioned marketing - and that is only half the job. Once you start paying for ads/exposure, you need to consider how you are receiving the traffic that comes from this marketing.

 

When customers find themselves on a new and unfamiliar website, they may be wary before choosing to spend money there - so it is up to you to think of incentives and ways to turn that traffic into conversions.

 

One recommendation is setting up a first time buyer discount, whether you're offering a percentage off the order, or another really attractive option is free shipping (if you can afford it).

 

In case you're unfamiliar with how this works, here is a guide from our help centre on creating discounts.

 

I also have a great Shopify Blog article for you here on How to Make your First E-commerce Sale.

 

If you would like me to offer you some more tailored advice, please go ahead and share the link to your store with me here - I will happily provide feedback!
