Hey all,

 

I recently started my own website dedicated to band T-Shirts and Posters. I would appreciate it if you could go through my website, and tell me your thoughts. What is good, what I can improve on, and your personal opinions on my products and design. Don't hold back lol all criticism is welcome. I'd also like if you have any suggestions on how/what to improve. You can find my website at MyHeavyNeeds.us   or   https://myheavyneeds.us/

 

Appreciate it 🙏

Hey Sandra,

 

Im not sure I understand. What specifically about the design is bad? I used black because it is easier for people to see and fits more my products as heavy/punk/grunge, where black and fluorescent colors are normally used, could you expand on your criticism please?

 

Thank you 🙂

Hello @MyHeavyNeeds 

 

I hope your are doing well and staying safe. There are a few suggestions i would like to make about your store.

 

  • Sticky header is recommended, as it makes it easy for the user to directly jump to the menu at any point of time while they are navigating through the Site.
  • A properly designed and built hero banner can help drive the right kind of customers on your website. Consider a strong message that represents what next step you want your site visitor to do based on their needs along with the CTA button on the banner.
  • Growing your business with a business blog is a great way to market your site. Now that you have some traffic coming to your site through your blog, you have an opportunity to convert that website traffic into leads.
  • Expand your social media promotions and attach those social links to the icons on footer menu. Make sure that social links open on new tab
  • Update contact us page with adding more details, as it builds trust on your store.
  • You can also sell your products on Etsy marketplace as it is very good platform to sell unique, handmade and Vintage goods . If you are already selling on Etsy store consider our Etsy Integration app in the shopify app store which provides seamless integration between Shopify-Etsy shop. Etsy is a Huge marketplace for selling creative goods such as art & collectibles, crafts & supplies, jewellery &accessories and more, If you have any unique/handmade/vintage goods in your store, you can give further exposure to your products.

        Thanks,

Hi @MyHeavyNeeds,
This is Kate from PageFly - Shopify Landing Page Builder App. 

I admire the design of your store and believe that implementing a few easy CRO tips could further optimize your conversion rates. I'd love to go over these ideas with you here by:

1. Button text on the hero banner section

For a hero banner promoting a "Buy 2 Get 1 Poster" offer, the button text should be clear and action-oriented, directly related to the offer. "Our Tshirts" is a bit too general and doesn't highlight the special offer. You can consider changing it to: “Grab Free Poster Now" - This creates urgency and highlights the benefit directly.

2. Product images

Displaying product images with models on your homepage can significantly enhance its appeal. Consider incorporating more of these visuals to boost the attractiveness of your clothing store.

You can create a new section and Integrate social media into your store: to foster stronger connections with customers, boost brand recognition, and enhance the potential for increased sales. Like this:

3. Contact us section

I'm a bit puzzled because when I click on the email button, it takes me to the FAQs page where I can't find the answer I'm looking for. There also isn't a contact form for me to submit my query. Could you please add a contact form to this page for better assistance?

And please update the content here, it is default section now:

4. Resize for the footer

I realized that on there are some blank space on the footer, you can consider to add more information or range these sections again:

5. Issue on the product page

I realize that there is a short error message appearing when I hover over the product image, this must be an error from theme, you can check with theme support to fix that.

I hope my suggestions will provide you with valuable insights. Merry Christmas! 🎄

Thank you loads for your suggestions, I'll definitely implement them. I'm aware of the piece of code that it mixed up on the hover product pages, I'm looking into fixing that.

I really appreciate you taking the time, and thanks for helping me out 😀

Hi @MyHeavyNeeds 

 

I have took a look over your store and I have some suggestions for you to improve your store better.

 

- Change text font

At first sight, I think you should change your text font. I know you want to make it fit with your store. However, it makes your customers really hard to see or I can say it is a little bit annoying. So, the text should be changed to make your store look more professional and increase your customer buying experiences. I recommend you use OpenSans, WorkSans or Roboto, these fonts look basic, but it can make your product highlight. 

- Build hero banner

The hero banner is a very important part of every store, this creates the customer’ first impression and drives your customers to product pages or collections pages to increase your sales effectively. 

- Add an Quick Buy tab in Band Poster section on homepage

I saw that you have had a quick buy tab in the T-shirts section already, but the Band Poster hasn't had it yet. Quick buy tab will help you a lot to drive your customers to checkouts, because they don’t need to access the product page, select a product and then click buy, they can stay at homepage to buy what they want. So, this will change your customer behavior and then you can increase sales properly. 

- Display social media content

Your products look really cool, so I highly recommend you to show your Instagram Feed, Tiktok Feed as a social proof to approach more customers. This helps to create customer awareness about your brand and deliver a better product look for customers.

- Fill up your footer with more content

Your footer has so many blank spaces, I think you should add more content here. Firstly, you can add your brand logo and brand slogan to remind customers about your brand. 

- Change the layout for Terms and Condition page, Privacy policy page

The Term and Conditions page and Privacy policy page layouts need to be changed, these pages have enough information, but the customers have to scroll down too much to read all the information. So, you should change your layout to help your customers read easily.

- Update your blog posts

I saw you have prepared your blog pages, but you didn’t have any posts. Please add them as soon as possible or you can hide it from your store until you have it. 

- Fix the faulty code in product pages

The faulty code in your product pages need to be removed, this thing makes your store look unprofessional. So you should make it change as soon as possible. 

- Add more information for product descriptions

The product descriptions part is really important to help customers have knowledge about your products. I have seen that you lack a Shipping & Return policy, care instructions, these things help you improve your customer buying experiences and make them trust your products and your brand.

- Add customer review section

On the product page, you should have a customer review section. This section helps you to collect your customers' reviews to help you know what are the best products or what products need to be improved to make your customer satisfied. Besides, you can show customer reviews to attract more new customers by the good reviews from old customers.

 

That's my all suggestions for you. Hope you and your store success 😎

Hi Gasper,

 

Thanks for pointing out the quick buy fix with my different collections, seems like an easy fix thanks for letting me know 🙏

Ill continue to work and improve my store thanks to your suggestions, I am aware of the random code and am attempting to fix it.

You said also a customer review section. I realize that customer testimonials build trust but I'm in the beginning stages, do you have any recommendations of any other trust-building tactics?

 

Thanks again, appreciate it!

You're welcome!

 

About the customer review section, you should add it in your product pages first, although you didn't have any reviews. And about the other trust-building tactics, I have some options for you:

- Display social media feed as I mentioned above, you can choose to display Instagram, Tiktok or Facebook, etc.

- Add a trust badge to let customers know that your stores and your products are good. 

- You can ask your customers by email, live chat box. You should connect with your customers more and more to know what they want, so don't hesitate to contact with them. 

Hope everything good come to you!

Hey @MyHeavyNeeds,

 

Cool site. My feedback is on how you can get more organic traffic to your site by making a few small changes. 

 

Try to find a list of high searched for terms that you are selling and then optimize each product page to rank higher for those terms. For example- the term "Pearl Jam tshirts" gets 3,600 searches per month on Google. Make sure to optimize that product page for this term. So add a Description H2 here: 

nuerrify_0-1703711193764.png

It can say "Pearl Jam Tshirts"

Underneath you can add a few lines about the band to add some more content. Add alt tags in the image around different ways people could search for this. If possible I would move the "unisex" to the end rather than in between Band name and tshirt. Same in the URL. 

 

Nirvana tshirt gets over 10,000+ searches per month but is too difficult to rank for, so I would skip that. Similarly, I would try to make your site look more authoritative and start ranking high for certain terms. For example the following list is easy to rank for and would be great to create blogs on (and you can link your products in these blogs as well!):

 

germany heavy metal bands (1,900 searches per month)
heavy metal bands of 2000s (1,600 searches per month)
heavy metal swedish bands (1,300 searches per month)
heavy metal mexican bands (720 searches per month)
british heavy metal bands (210 searches per month)
 
Just these 5 blogs could get you 5,700 impressions per month or 60K impressions per year. 
 
If you do this, you'll start getting more authority in Google's eyes and your site will start ranking high for other keywords automatically. Good luck!
