Hello world, I just recently launched my site and made my first legitimate sale. I'd love to get some feedback from some seasoned members on pros and cons.
- Homepage recommended layout- The home page should flow better. I would recommend setting it out like this, top announcement bar, Slideshow banners, Collection List, Product Recommendations, product reviews, Newsletter sign-up box, Blog Posts, Instagram Feed & footer.
- Issue with navigation- Make your store easy to navigate. Add a sticky header with a drop-down menu. If your store will be easy to navigate it will help you to reduce the bounce rate.
- Add a favicon.
- Make the announcement bar clickable and add a call to action button to let customers make an action.
- Add a web push notification. It turns visitors into subscribers and subscribers into customers. You can retarget customers & send notifications of new updates and offers. It can be sent even when customers are not in your store and bring back the lost customer to your store. You can also send an abandoned cart push notification, it helps to reduce the abandoned cart rate.
- Add trust badges in your store. With the help of trust badges, customers will know that all the processes taking place are safe and secure.
Just do these improvements and add the required tools in your store which will help you to drive conversions to your store. Make your store engaging to engage the visitors coming to your store & drive conversions for the long term.
To add the above marketing engagement tools there are many apps available in the Shopify app store. Instead of installing multiple apps, you can install the all-in-one Shopify app AiTrillion and get all the benefits of marketing features in a single app.
P.S- Free plan available.
Congratulations on your store!
