Hi Ibrahim,

Good website,

Being searching for Blog news on the website, I have found an Liquid error on the page. Clear it asap...

In Chapters page, I can see only 1chapter and the remaining are locked which redirects to a page inturns the Facebook icon doesn't show any profile. Try to update the page with all chapters.

Your website could be more trust worthy if you can place your photographs in About Us page if possible.

Be on more social plaforms to SEO your website https://www.shopify.com/guides/make-your-first-ecommerce-sale

Hope that helps,

Hi Ibrahim,

Your website looks great! Nothing really makes me want to buy though, what makes your clothes special?

I think you're headed in the right direction, but I would definitely have to say that the home page feels very empty.. The website feels more like an art gallery than a clothing store, it just feels plain. Try sprucing the website up a bit, some free themes just look terrible no matter how hard you try.

Don't forget that social media when used correctly, can be your best friend, and your worst enemy when used incorrectly. Again, see what your competitors are doing well and try to repeat their formula. You have to engage people on social media, like their comments and comment back. Comment and like their material as well, it can't be one way. Instagram is single handedly the best eCommerce marketing platform.

The more money you spend on logical marketing, the more you get back from your investment. Things like collaborating with people who have businesses that can help make yours seem more appealing (IE models if you sell clothes, chefs/photographers if you sell food items, etc), reach out to people who are currently marketing your niche (but aren't your competition) and get them to feature your product on their blog/social media.

Oh, and, you opened a week ago but you've only managed 8 Instagram followers? How are you getting so many visitors if you have no social media traffic whatsoever?

Always ensure that your website has a Terms and Conditions section and a Privacy Policy section. Shopify can randomly generate them for you, but it is better to make it sound like you wrote it yourself. Have a section for these causes people to actually trust your site.

Best of luck!

Thanks,
Jared

Hi Ibrahim,

Great website! Love the discount lottery feature. The testimonials on Home page are good but I don't see specific product reviews. The majority of customers trust product reviews as much as personal recommendations.

HERE is a detailed Shopify guide to make your first sale. Your traffic number is great, and I would suggest to investigate the quality of the traffic. Facebook is one of the most effective platforms to advertise for your business. I see you have a few followers on Facebook so I recommend to promote your Facebook Page first and then work on paid ads. Also, check out Pollen, an app that makes targeting on Facebook much easier to increase your traffic quality. Have you tried retargeting as well? Retargeting is a great way to convert visitors into purchases. Hope this helps and good luck with your business!

Best,
Mike

Hey everyone,

Thank you all for your insightful advice, it has honestly helped a lot. This is my first business, so any help is really appreciated.

I've placed the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy on the "Legal Stuff" page. Would you guys advice putting them on seperate pages or would it be fine in its current form?

Kind regards,

Ibrahim

Hi Ibrahim,

Looking much better!

I would definitely suggest havng separate pages for the privacy policy and the terms and conditions. People look for these as a sign of trust. Even if no one ever actually reads them, it still makes your website stand out in a sea of untrustworthy websites.

Can I suggest you that you use better hashtags on instagram? Yours are pretty bad to be honest, don't just use generic ones, they need to be deep niche specific for higher engagement rates. If you want to grow your Instagram, you have to do three consistent things, like other peoples posts when they Use similar hashtags to what your business is selling (I aim for 1400 likes a day to other peoples posts), Post meaningful content with relevant hashtags that will actively engage your targeted customer base (you should know the age range, gender and location of your primary customers before you even start your business), and Consistent posting every single day of the week (a day wasted is a potential sale wasted). Other suggestions for growing quickly, Follow at least 800-900 people per day from your competitions follower base, and a consistent themed content feed (this one is very hard to do unless you plan everything in advance).

Best of luck!

Jared
