What did I do now once I saw that sales were x what I had projected for I sent them another pallet they received the pallet about a week before I ran out of inventory but it was just sitting in their warehouse I had shipping confirmation that that they had received it but they had no then they didn’t have it in their warehouse like they didn’t have it checked in they didn’t have anything as far as I could tell. So what (more…)

Why your Website is not Making Any Sales

So you have a website up but it’s not making any sales why is that why does nobody trust your website there’s a few really good reasons why and there’s probably two main categories there’s the technical reasons why and the social proof reasons why and both these are critically important.

 

There’s the technical reasons first up your website probably looks really bad it probably looks crappy it probably looks like some kind of a scam website easy to fix here’s some of the things one go to your favorite web site go to your the biggest competitor you have the person you know that makes millions of millions of dollars and figure out who that is and copy the look and feel of their website in the meantime eventually you can afford to hire a designer and make your website look much much better but at first that’s what you need to do you need to go to your competitors website and try to copy all the details number two your about Us page probably looks awful no one trusts you what can you do to change that add a picture of yourself at the minimum add your story out of video and it’s not hard to add a video you can take your phone and just start recording I mean you make it slightly more professional than that but you know maybe set it up if you have some friends that know what they’re doing you know whatever it is talk about your company in yourself and if you for whatever reason don’t think you look good on camera don’t come across well on camera hire a professional to do it you can go on Fiverr and for five dollars you can get an about us video that’s gonna look (more…)

7 Biggest Mistakes Ecommerce, Shopify and Drop shipping Store Owners Make

 

In this video, we’re gonna talk about this 7 biggest mistake that online store owners ecommerce entrepreneurs make and this kills me when I see someone do it I’ve consulted it for a lot of different ecommerce stores and over and over again I see these mistakes.

1. Not Niched down
2. Header/Logo Too Big
3. Product Page Sucks
4. Bad About Us and Other Pages
5. Poor Navigation
6. Bad Photos
7. No USP

1. Not Niched Down enough – probably is my guess I mean I obviously don’t know your store but let me take a stab in the dark you probably not niche down enough. So what do I mean most people that come to me their target demographic is women 35 to 55 now you might be thinking yeah that’s a good niche that’s pretty niche down No then they say okay well what about moms 35 to 55 mmm still way too broad then they might say okay well upper middle class moms to getting warmer but not good enough. So I’ll say something like it should be upper middle class vegan yoga moms that own a pair of Lululemon pants that’s what I’m talking about it needs to be that specific maybe even a little bit more specific the reason it’s. So powerful is when you know that much information about who your target customer is and makes it a lot easier to make your entire website perfect for them make your entire Instagram page or Facebook make all the content on your website perfect for that specific niche of people you want to have thousand true fans you want one thousand people that are part of your tribe that just absolutely love your product love your company and if you go for women 35 to 55 no one’s gonna love your company (more…)
