Hey I’ve had my shop for a few months and it’s getting really discouraging, I have minimum traffic to my store and literally no sales. How do I generate more traffic and get people to actually buy my products ?
my website is https://lamarieskin.com
Hi @Lamarieskin !
I love your logo, and hero banner image.
If your website doesn’t have a blog already, make creating one a priority. But if you have a blog, it gives people a reason to keep coming back. Blogs also help improve your SEO because you’re constantly adding new content to your page.
Homepage designs guides your visitors around your website. To engage visitors you need to work on homepage layout design. Include trust indicators on the homepage. Homepage content should be strategically decided.
Social media has become a huge thing nowadays. I highly recommend taking advantage of that and adding Instagram galleries on your homepage. It will help drive traffic from your site on to your account and vice versa.
The items on your store are something that will most likely be purchased by one person several times. For better customer retention I recommend using Rewards program by Growave, that will give out various discounts depending on how much a person has spent on your store or how many actions he/she has completed (left a review, shared the site, created an account, etc.)

Hey there @Lamarieskin Not being able to generate sales is part of eCommerce journey. Don't worry. Great things take time! Here's what I'd like to suggest -
1. When I'm at your homepage, I see there is an About Me section. Because you're running a store, you need to rename it as About Us - a brief about your venture.
2. For now, when I'm moving my cursor to the image, nothing happens. You can add effects like as soon as I move my cursor the image bursts open or zoom in smoothly.
3. Too big fonts! Try and reduce them.
But these are small-small things that would not stop you from grabbing sales! What are you doing to take care of cart abandoners? Are you sending them emails regularly?
