Hi, I have recently upgraded my store ShirtPlugs.com, with new styles and layout and have been open for a few months now... How is the store now and is there anything you would suggest I change to improve my site and make it more user friendly and make them want to buy??? How can I get more sells?!? Are there anything apps that increase sells or do you have any people/ blogs or website links I could use that can drive more sells or does ads for you??? Would you shop from the store, why or why not??? Thanks in advance I LOVE YOU, shirtplugs.com
The first thing I noticed is that your is is extremely slow; I wouldn't worry about sales yet until you've boosted your site speed. There are too many popups, your images are probably too high a resolution and you probably have too many apps running which is making your site really slow, which is the first major thing which will put off sellers.
I can help you personally, if you'd like
You've got a cool logo, website and product, great potential here!
You've got a lot going on upon first arrival, too many things vying for your visitors attention all at once, it's overwhelming.
Getting rid of a lot of these things will also help with your store speed, which is on the slow side.
Your social media icons in both the header and the footer of your store don't link to your pages, they are linked to instagram.com and facebook.com. I would add that in, people want to check things out before they buy and one of the first places they are going to look is social media.
My last piece of advice is to spend some time on your SEO. The most important piece of selling is getting the right kind of traffic to your store, your target audience. We hear from a lot of store owners A LOT that they get a lot of traffic but no conversions. We’ve created a video walking you through how to do your SEO properly so that you can target your intended audience:

Hey @ShirtPlugs, I hope you are doing fine!
Congratulations on your store!
Your store looks absolutely fantastic no doubt there, the home page and layout colors everything is great. One thing that I found odd is that your store is taking a lot of time to load which is really bad as the customers might not wait that long and also your product titles and their description don't live up to the store's amazing look, if the description is a little organized and descriptive it will surely help customers to understand better about the product. Lastly the product title a good product title should have all the essential information about the product take Amazon’s product titles for example.
In addition, I checked your website's On-Page SEO score and it wasn't looking good. I'd strongly suggest you work on that along with the products which have useless meta description as meta description and SEO rating vastly impact your store visibility on google and other possible interaction places. Also, the meta description plays an important role in attracting the right kind of traffic ultimately resulting in better conversions and increased sales.
I’d really suggest you try Descrii, they provide titles, descriptions, and meta descriptions for your products that’ll help your website to climb high in search rankings and ultimately gain more traffic and conversion.
I hope this helps you achieve your goals.
Good luck with the store.
Have a nice day!

Hi @ShirtPlugs !
Implement an opportunity to log in and sign up using Social Media account. We all have accounts at least in one social media. And if I have an opportunity to create an account just with one click, I will do it. having an easier way to Sign in will help you gather customer base. The most valuable thing for a company is the customer.
90% of people read reviews before purchasing an item. I personally do not read the description too much, I go straight on to the reviews section because that is social proof. In my opinion that is essential for every site. I highly recommend (almost insist) and adding that feature on your site. You can use Growave for that, it offers automated emails within the Reviews feature as well.
