Looking for feedback on my store - The Rod Box

33 0 9

Hey everyone,

My store, therodbox.com , has been live for a month now. I am using the free debut theme and i get my traffic from google smart shopping ads. I was getting a few sales at first but not anymore.

I believe i may have a problem with my product pages. I have a high bounce rate. I also get adds to cart, but that's all now. I would appreciate any feedback you're willing to give. Thanks

Hello @Boxtherob, I hope you are doing good?

I have carefully gone through your complaint and I understand your compalint that you need a Shopify expert to rescue you from the challenges you're facing in your store which is about converting your store traffic to sales.

I have thoroughly assessed your store and just as you said, I can see you used Debut theme which is a free theme. I consider this as not appropriate for long term effectiveness considering the fact that you have so many collections and sub-collections in your store which even makes your store loading to be slow.

There are several reasons that could cause this.

-One of it is FREE THEME. Free theme is NOT the fair theme to use for this kind of store because of the products. 

-Also, getting bounce rate is as a result of wrong targeting of productss. You can't expect those that need a cup of hot coffee to queue for pizza, NO! You need a targered audience of your product and insight research of your the products in your store to help boost traffic and conversions.

The fact that you are having bouncing traffic in your store product page actually means that your store is having an issue and I recommend redesihgning your store using a Shopify paid premium theme. 

Another solution to boost conversion is the building of sales funnel for traffic conversion. Through sales funnel, you can target and retarg your subscribers who signuip to ypour mainling list, those who has bought products in your store before or those who has not but subscribe. Setting up series of automated campaigns will help you to get feedbacks from them regarding your store and making more sales because it will surely helps you to build relationship with your clients and prospects.

For a better discussion and sharing of knowledge regarding the success of your store, Kindly contact me!!!

I will be looking forward to your message to render all that I can for you.


Warmest regards

Hi @Boxtherob,

It's PageFly - Shopify Page Builder App here and I'd like to share some of my initial thoughts when first browsing through your online store. I hope that these comments can be somewhat beneficial to you in improving your site performance. But first, you can check out this article on how you can optimize your conversion rate of your homepage.  

I/ Homepage

1. Make the Header and Free Shipping Banner sticky. As the search bar is in the Header, you can consider make it sticky so that customer can reach for it anytime they need to find anything. As well as the Promotion Banner for obvious reason, repetitive display of the offer will eventually push the visitors towards taking action.


2. Add CTA button for Product Lists. CTA buttons serve as a guidance to your customers to know what to do next when browsing through your store.


II/ Collection Page

1. Use Load More instead of Pagination. The majority of the merchants would prefer Pagination but the feature itself poses some difficulties if they want to compare 2 products from 2 pages.


2. Add Secondary Hover Image. This will help your customers understand more about the products regarding sizes, style, which helps them decide whether to buy the product more easily.



Overall, this is a very clean layout website and you must have put a lot of time and effort into this.

HI @Boxtherob ,

After review of you store, I will advise you to install some social proof apps on the store. Most of the buyers will not buy if they did not found the site authentic. For first time buyer's you have to win their trust and social proof are great way to achieve that.

Also, you have not added any push notification app pan your store.Push notifications have high conversion rate. Most of the visitors just leaves after adding product to cart without purchasing it. Push notifications are great way to remind them of their abandoned cart and nudge them to complete the purchase.

You are really missing out with this core functionality which could easily recover some lost sales for you.

There are plenty of app on appstore which are offering push notification either for free or for very reasonable price.

I will recommend https://apps.shopify.com/cartbite

This one is offering abandoned cart ,back in stock and price drop notification on push and emails. 

If this is helpful please up vote the answer so that other merchants can get benefit from it too
