Hi! May I ask for your feedbacks & suggestions for my first ever store? I would like to hear them before I go all the way on advertising my products. If possible, can you also tell me which product from my store do you think will be the best for advertising? I would really appreciate this so much as this is my first time using Shopify.
Thank you so much in advance! :')
I have visited your store and here are my suggestions. Hope they are helpful to you
In general, your homepage looks great. You can make a sticky navigation menu so that visitors can easily access all important sections of your site. The constant presence of the menu bar reminds users that other pages, ones they probably need, are also available.
Besides, so many products on your website can make customers get lost. They may stick to discovering all your beautiful products and take a long time to make a buying decision. You can totally solve this problem by adding a sticky cart displaying on any page on your website. It is always visible and reminds customers to check out for their chosen products in the cart.
Sticky cart and sticky bar encourage customers to buy more and decrease the abandonment cart rate. You can try out this app Advanced Sticky Add to Cart to activate Sticky cart in your store for free.
I see that you have a business Instagram account which is great to integrate your Instagram with your store. Turn your Instagram feed into a shoppable gallery and let your followers shop right from the posts. Displaying beautiful shoppable Instagram galleries throughout your site will aid in product discovery, inspiration, and sales. Link your Instagram profile to your store and convert your followers into customers. App Instagram Shoppable Feed can help you at ease and free.
Your products are quite diverse which is suitable for making product bundles. Product bundles with discounts is an effective tip to motivate customers to buy more products. Most customers are willing to buy product bundles to get a lower total price so that you should not miss this chance by adding many bundles on your website.
If you want to add product bundles in your store at ease and free, try out this app Product Bundle Volume Discount
That’s all my suggestions for your store. Hope they are helpful to you
Hope you are doing good. Your store looks nice and here are few suggestions.
Make a Sticky header for easy navigation. It helps customer to access menu at any time they want.
Improve hero banner, as it gives good impression when customer lands on the homepage.
Add few products with ATC(add to cart) on the homepage.
Add Testimonials or reviews on the homepage to build trust with the visitors.
Include Blog page, Blog posting will allow you to show your followers a personal side of your business. In this way you can engage with Existing and New customers.
You can promote your products with word of mouth strategy. Boost your sales with the app from the shopify app store which helps to increase your sales.
There is no terms and conditions checkbox at checkout. I suggest you to install an app from shopify app store which provides 'I agree to the Terms and Conditions' before checkout .As it makes easy for the customer to read your terms and policies.
Its good to have customer review option on the products, so that customer can write a review when they purchase any product from your store. Install Product review app from the Shopify app store.
You can also sell your products on Etsy marketplace as it is very good platform to sell unique, handmade and Vintage goods . If you are already selling on Etsy store consider our Etsy Integration app in the shopify app store. Etsy is a Huge marketplace for selling creative goods such as art & collectibles, crafts & supplies, jewellery &accessories and more, if you have any unique/handmade/vintage goods in your store, you can give further exposure to your products.

Congrats on your new store! I’m Richard Nguyen- CRO Expert at PageFly- Free Landing Page Builder. I’d like to give you some feedback and suggestions for over 100.000 merchants to help increase conversion rates for your store based on 5 years of experience.
First, I like that you have:
However, I still think if you add these suggestions below it could leverage your website.
Add a sticky header
A sticky navigation bar will make it easier for customers to navigate from any part of the homepage to any page of your store.
1.1. Add more bespoke images background
The background images of the homepage banner are a little bit bland and uninviting. You should use more bespoke homepage imagery and design, but be cautious if considering highly stylized, unconventional designs.
I take this banner as an example, the basic black and white are not appealing enough. It’s the upcoming BFCM and holiday season, you can consider putting out a promotion campaign. You can consult our templates for the holiday season right here.
1.2. Feature a representative sample of products on the homepage
Only showcase collections might not be enough. You should feature a diverse sample of products directly on the homepage. Typical small catalog sites should aim for featuring at least half of the product catalog on the homepage, and at least 1 product for each product type. I would suggest you add Best-sellers and New in categories.
1.3. Add a section for a brand story on your homepage
Lack of trust can be the main reason that you have visitors but no purchase. Even If you are doing a dropshipping store, the brand story still gives you the opportunity to create a long-term eCommerce store. Branding is also great to increase the trust and the percentage of customers returning to your store.
1.4. Adding a testimonial section with pictures from customers
Users usually rely on reviews to select a product rather than product detail descriptions and other information provided because they believe reviews are more legitimate and trustworthy. I recommend that you include customer feedback on your home page and product pages.
You can use third-party review apps like Loox, Yotpo, or Judge.me, among others. PageFly works with these apps.
This guide can also be used to select the best reviews app for your store.
2. Collection page
2.1. Have secondary hover images for the product
Customers can easily scan many products to see additional imagery by presenting secondary hover images.
2.2 Use swatches to indicate color variations
Use swatches to indicate color variations in list items (and a single swatch or text if there is only one color), you need to make sure swatches are large enough to provide users with enough visual information, and clearly indicate the total number (e.g., "+11") if all color variations cannot be shown.
This is a nice example from https://sunniesstudios.com/, you can consult.
2.3 Compile the average ratings for each product.
On the product list items, you should include both the average user rating and the number of ratings. This is one of the most important factors in user purchasing decisions. They will rely on both to determine whether or not to pursue a product further.
3. Product page
3.1. Add a minimum of 3-5 product images for all products
Product images are crucial for users to judge products; if products do not display enough images, users will not be able to get a full sense of the products and will be hesitant to purchase.
3.2. Add product description for all products
This is essential for all product so I think you should invest time to complete them and remember to add subsection headings helps users easily navigate long lists of bullet points as well as blocks of text.
If you think my answer was useful, please like and mark it as a solution. Thank you and best of luck!
