Hi, guys. Newbie, here. I own Extraordinarythingz, and I've been operating for about 6 weeks now, and have not made a single sale. I'm on a fixed income, so, a very limited budget. Could someone have a look and maybe tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you for your time and consideration of this matter.
Would you mind sharing your website URL so I can provide you with some curated feedback?

Hello Larry, it would have been much better if you shared your store URL link for me to have a look at but anyways here are two major general suggestions that could be useful.
1) You should make sure the social media accounts of the business as well as accepted methods of payment are both present at the bottom of the homepage.
2) You should consider bundling products together in your store. For example, if you are selling clothing items you could bundle matching shirts and shoes together and sell at one joint price. Customers tend to lean towards deals like these ones. However, to do this efficiently you’ll need the aid of an app and I suggest none other than the Bundler- Product Bundles App. This app would help handle everything you can think of with regards to bundling products in your store together for the most optimal results. You can even try it for free here https://apps.shopify.com/bundler-product-bundles

Congrats on your new store! I have just taken a quick look at your website and here are some plus points:
That being said, here are some suggestions for your store to increase the conversion rate:
1. Have a favicon for your store
This makes your store look unique and professional. You can check this Shopify guide for more details https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/online-store/images/add-favicon
2. Make your notification bar well-designed
Let's make it simple with your convincing brand values. This keeps the intrigue high, inspiring them to scroll & learn more about your products.
3. Have a sticky header
This will help customers navigate from every part of the homepage to any page of your store more conveniently.
If possible, please resize your logo to save more space for your products to be viewed, especially when scrolling the page.
4. CTA buttons
A primary call to action button is one of the important things for a home page of an online store.
With this button, you will redirect customers to the page you want them to take action mostly. It can redirect to a collection page, or a product page, etc.
It’s great when you placed a “Shop all” button on your banner. A CTA button here will urge visitors to make the purchase and it is a great way to optimize your home page.
You can consider adding a background color for it to highlight the button.
And, please rest assured that all CTA buttons should have the same styling to boost the conversion rate.
5. Adjust reasonable spacing
You might want to add more spacing among these texts as it makes your store outlook more aesthetic.
6. Align the items evenly
As long as the product titles and product prices align with each other, the product list becomes more attractive to keep the customers stay longer on your site.
7. Add testimonials - customer reviews
Customer reviews are proof of your product quality. This section will help you build customers' trust. You can show rating stars for each product or you can add customer reviews as text and photos.
Moreover, International Women’s Day 2023 (IWD) is just around the corner. With the theme #EmbraceEquality, here are some worthwhile ideas for you to make the most of it:
1. Personalize your discounts and deals
You can offer sales, discounts, or special deals to your female customers to make them feel more valued in IWD!
2. Show testimonials from female customers
You can show rating stars for each product or you can add customer reviews as text and photos. Additionally, featuring women's portraits with their testimonials would make it even more engaging.
3. Spotlights female staff
This can be a great way to enhance your brand presence as a brand that supports equality for women. You can even promote your own business if it’s women-owned as it is probably a golden opportunity for you to receive support and promotion from others.
And that's my feedback! Hope it helps your business.

I'm sorry to hear that you haven't made any sales yet. Starting a new business can be challenging, and it can take time to gain traction and generate revenue. Here are a few possible reasons why you may not be making sales:
1. Lack of visibility
If people don't know your business exists, they won't be able to buy from you. It's possible that your marketing efforts aren't reaching your target audience. Consider investing in some low-cost marketing strategies, such as social media marketing or email marketing, to increase your visibility.
2. Ineffective messaging
If your messaging isn't resonating with your target audience, they may not see the value in what you're selling. Make sure your messaging clearly communicates the benefits of your products and how they solve a problem for your customers.
3. Poor website design
If your website is difficult to navigate, slow to load, or unprofessional-looking, it can turn off potential customers. Make sure your website is easy to use and visually appealing.
4. Limited product selection
If you only offer a few products, potential customers may not find what they're looking for. Consider expanding your product selection or offering customization options to appeal to a wider audience.
5. Lack of trust
If your website doesn't look secure or professional, or if you don't have any customer reviews or testimonials, potential customers may be hesitant to buy from you. Make sure your website looks trustworthy and consider reaching out to friends and family to leave reviews.
It's possible that you have competitors who are offering similar products at a lower price or with better marketing. Consider researching your competitors to see what they're doing differently.
To address these issues, you could try:
1. Optimizing your website for better search engine visibility, including using relevant keywords and optimizing your content and metadata.
2. Offering discounts or promotions to incentivize people to buy from you.
3. Reach out to your social network and ask for referrals.
4. Creating partnerships with other businesses or influencers to expand your reach.
5. Reach out to your target audience directly through email or direct mail marketing campaigns.
Remember that building a successful business takes time, effort, and patience. Don't get discouraged by slow initial sales, and keep experimenting with different strategies until you find what works for you.
