Hello, I have been working on getting my store open, and it has been challenging. I am having trouble with Google analytics, seems they have disabled me and I can not figure out how to fix the problem. I am new to alot of this work, but really trying to learn.
Can someone, (or many) take a look at my store, buckboardgifts.com and give me any advise for improvement? It would be greatly appreciated and welcomed. Thanks so much in advance.
This is Richard from PageFly - Landing Page Builder App. I would love to share my initial thoughts when first browsing through your online store.
Add a favicon to your store
Having a favicon for your store will make your store unique and help customers easily recognize it. You can check this article to know how to add it.
1. Make the menu sticky
2. Add trust badges, tell your brand story
Your products are not everything, your brand credibility is important too. Using trust badges can help you with that. A trust badge section should tell the customers what you have to offer, maybe Free shipping, a Money-back guarantee, Certified products, and so on. There’re a lot of apps for trust badges you might want to check them out on Shopify App Stores. Basically, a trust badge section should look something like this
In addition, it’s also essential to have a brand story section on your homepage. Tell the customers what you do differently, and why they should choose you over other brands out there. This will also help increase your brand credibility and encourage your customers to make a purchase. A brand story section can look something like the image below.
3. 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. This section can also help you increase your conversion rate because reviews from previous customers have a big impact on your potential customer’s buying decisions.
4. Create a unique sign-up form
Having a sign-up form on your site, your customers can subscribe to your newsletter to receive product information, any sales campaign, etc from your store. Make use of your sign-up form and be creative with it, like adding a background image. You can take a look at the image below for an example.
1. Highlight the “Filter and Sort” feature
According to Blue Stout, adding button styling to the Filter and Sort selection on Collection pages results in a 16.3% increase in conversion rate and a 26% increase in the likelihood of customers using the sort/filter functions. Adding a bolded black contrast on an important Filter and Sort feature allowed visitors to get to the product they were interested in that much quicker. Less confusion, more user-friendly design.
2. Add links to other best-selling collections at the bottom of each collection page
According to Blue Stout, adding links to your other best-selling collections at the bottom of each collection page keeps customers on-site, leading to a 17.3% increase in conversions. Redirecting to specific high-performing categories at the end of the page eliminates the need to scroll back up into navigation. Once a customer reaches the end, give them the option to narrow their search by linking to a popular category collection.
1. Create a FOMO effect
A recent test by the Blue Stout team shows that using visitor data helps increase the conversion rate by 42%. Creating the FOMO effect by adding a line of real-time visitor data next to the add-to-cart button can add major sales to your store. This sense of urgency makes your customer perceive its popularity, leading to a confident purchase.
2. Subdivide long product descriptions with Sections and Headings
It should look something like this
Furthermore, you can consider using a page builder app with a Shopify theme made for this niche to enhance your store appearance and increase the mobile experience for customers. You can check out the following themes Blum, Sense, Dawn…
Page speed is extremely crucial for both buyer’s experience and Google ranking. You can improve your page speed by optimizing your images or reducing unused code on your site.
I hope it helps and happy selling!
