Hi Warriors

Can anyone please give me feedback on my new site built on Shopify

www.vintageleatherbags.net

I have done everything myself including graphics and SEO. Getting on Google page 2-3 for most targeted keywords.

I've tried to keep it kind of vintage-y to keep the theme constant. Getting about 50-70 unique visitors per day though organic SEO and Twitter/Pinterest referrals.

Had a few sales, but not many

Many thanks, looking forward to hearing from you
Trevor

    The look is fine, though you are getting brown and white as your main colors...might want to consider adding something complimentary in to brighten things up. Maybe in the header background.

    But as it is, the website seems fine.

    I'm a member of your target market (hooray!).

    5% is not much of an incentive to sign up. People don't get excited until around say 20-25% (and they don't really think a thing is a sale until around 50% off, so you have some goalposts.) Yes, I did see different offers pop up, a 10% checkout code.

    If you're getting sales, then conversion isn't the issue.

    You need more traffic. That's where to put your effort. Either do more of what you're doing on photo-driven sites, or find a new way to start bringing in pre-qualified traffic.

      Thank you Jason
      Can't really go much further on discounting. Margins are pretty tight in these. There is the school of thought that says price higher and discount more. Personally I'm not keen, but this may be a better way to go.

      I wonder what the general consensus is

      Thanks for your input, much appreciated and very pleased to hear that you are in the target market

    In general It looks fine. I just don't like those popping windows. I would get rid of It.
    Another thing - IMO you could do better job with those banners.It doesn't look bad, just could look a little bit better but for now this should not be your primary concern. Focus on traffic and you will get more feedback from your customers. Good luck. Keep up with good work.
