Welcome to Shopify and congratulations on opening a new store. All-in-one marketing platform Growave is here. I would recommend you update some features and implement e-commerce marketing tools in order to increase your sales and drive traffic. I hope my recommendations would help.
Invest in displayed photos and use professional camera equipment and lighting
Social Login provides easier access to a customer's account and enables creating an account within one click through social media account. It simplifies the login process and enables one-click signup. Also, gathered data through social login can be studied for customer retention and client analysis.
Loyalty and Rewards program motivates shoppers to engage more meaningfully with the brand. It allows you to strengthen customer relationships, increase repeat purchases, turn your customers into loyal advocates, and treat the most loyal customers with VIP treatments. In general, all those actions are designed to drive high-value purchasing behaviors. On the L&R page, you can include points, referral programs, and VIP tiers. Depends on you. One of the most useful features of the Rewards feature is the Referral program. Use it in order to give your customers an opportunity of sharing your products with friends and getting rewarded for that Through a referral program, you encourage your customers to help grow your brand community.
I haven't noticed any reviews at your shop. I strongly advise adding testimonials/reviews to products for building customer trust and social proof. Reviews are a vital part of an online store since credibility is a fundamental basis in any eCommerce. Testimonials have the ability to increase the confidence of new consumers, something essential to reduce rebound rates and abandonment of shopping carts. Since you've launched the online shop recently, try to collect them through apps, depending on your budget. Through the app, your customer can leave a photo or text reviews and will be reminded to share opinions whenever you prefer.
Offering a Wishlist is an effective way to reduce shopping cart abandonment and fulfill sales from customers who showed intent but didn't purchase. This is a non-obvious feature that extremely scales your purchases. Since you offer various designs and color options, I recommend adding a Wishlist to improve the user experience. If the items from the Wishlist haven't been purchased, automated emails will be sent out as a reminder. Moreover, you can analyze the data to see what items people save for later and what items they actually buy
For adding the functions above you can use several apps. However, if you want to get all of them at affordable price, try Growave. We have 5 great features - Reviews, Wishlist, Rewards & Loyalty, Social Login, shoppable Instagram gallery on Shopify store.

Feedback on: www.collectiblezoo.com
My feedback goes this
This website is very good and responsive for any visitors that badge in, but you did few mistakes that might reduce the flows of sales.
*Get more than 1 payment method to the site
*Try to Integrate social media Icon to it
*Install chat bot app for customer support
Concerning getting sales, you will need to run either 3 of the strategy
* Social media marketing
* Email Marketing/ SMS Marketing
* Google marketing
With this you can develop your store traffic and convert the customer with flows of messages. Traffic from unauthorized app won't fetch you sales.
Hi @Collectiblezoo ,
I'm Richard Nguyen from PageFly. I want to give you some comments from my experience in CRO method.
First of all, I advice you to add a favicon icon to your store. Having a favicon for your store will make your store unique and help customers easily recognize it. You can check this Shopify article to know how to add it
Now let's take a look at your store. I want to give you some comments on your homepage. Because you know, homepage is the most important page to drive your customers' attraction in your store. No matter what the demand is, people are more likely to start their journey from a homepage.
You have a so cute homepage. I thought the page has lots of code but it loads very well.
I think the horizontal menu navigation is unnecessary. You already have a vertical one and it's more prominent and it has the search field. Customers will prefer it. It would be great if you can keep the vertical menu fixed while customers browse your site so that they always can access the menu navigation no matter where they are landing on.
Maybe you should check social links on the menu. Facebook link isn't linking to your store account.
Make words on banner image clickable button so that when someone click on it, they can go to corresponding collection page. This will help increase the conversion rate.
The section "Feature collection" causes misleading.
When seeing that title, I think you will show product categories in your store, but you show products. So the title should be "Feature products".
Also, making product images have the same size will help your site look more professional.
Finally, you should consider adding a secondary image on each product image. This will help customers be able to see more images of this product when hovering on it. This partly helps increase the conversion rate.
Show off your feature products
You can add some sections that show your products on the homepage. These featured products can be on-sales, arrivals, best-sellers… Visitors are often curious about products like that and they will click to learn more. This can help you increase conversion rate and therefore, increase sales.
Add product reviews/ testimonials
People love proof, especially when they visit a store and see many good reviews, they will be willing to shop! So you should add testimonial/product reviews on your store. You can check this guide to know more about its benefits and how to make it effective.
It would be great if you have video testimonials!
You can use third-party reviews apps such as: Loox, Yotpo, or Judge.me, etc. PageFly integrates with these apps. Check the best review apps you should try here
Add newsletter section.
A newsletter can be placed on the bottom of the home page or you can put it on the footer. Having a newsletter on your site, customers can subscribe to their emails to receive product information, any sales campaign, etc from your store. This is a good way to keep in touch with your customers and increase engagement.
If you find my comment helpful, please tell me know by giving it a like. Thank you!
