I would very much appreciate feedback on my store website if you have time.
The store website went live on 10/23/20. Shopify analytics shows I have had over 400 website visits with one sale. The day after the website went live,I sent out a "we are open" email blast to the 350+ people who signed up to be notified when the website goes live which to me was great! I know the product sells as I have participated as a vendor at different art festivals and shows. Three small local stores have carried my product and the product did well with sales; one store carried the product and kept ordering from me for 2 years.
I decided to try and build a website to see if I could get some online sales - It wasn't easy and I had a very small budget.
I know the product is not for everyone (in fact, I haven't had any feedback, good or bad from family or friends and I know they have visited the website - not much support from them which kinda sucks).
To be honest, I like the product and believe in it, but with no real family/friends giving any kind of feedback, I have to say, I'm feeling a bit self-conscious about the whole concept of this product right now. Any and all feedback would be helpful - design, functionality, product, content, do I need more clarity with the content
Really it's ok, give it all to me; don't hold back -I say this with a deep breath lol. Thank you in advance.
Hello @kcdomin, I hope you are doing good! Could you share your store URL so we can provide you the honest feedback?
It's hard to say for sure without looking at your website (if you share your store link, I can update my response) but going off of what you said about product not being for everyone, that's not a bad thing. The key isn't just getting traffic, it's getting the right kind of traffic, your target audience.
We hear from a lot of store owners A LOT that they get a lot of traffic but no conversions. We’ve created a video walking you through how to do your SEO properly so that you can target your intended audience:
