    Hi Everyone,

    First post so go easy, I am just looking for some feedback from my website good and bad, I get around 200 views a week and can get anything from 1 to 3 sales a week. Just wondering if there is anything off putting about the website or something anyone would change etc? Any feedback is good feedback.

    Regards

    Will Team Funky

    Personally, I like the simplicity of it. You put it out there in front of your viewers so they don't have to guess and hunt. I think I would add a little more description to your products though, I would buy from you.

    Most Artisan sites we manage use the simplicity of the black and white pages with their products in color. It promotes their art work and makes it standout better for viewers to their site.

    Good luck

    Well, its a theme I am assume since its from Big Cartel.

    One thing I would change and its extremely simple, but I would 1, find a different area to show the dimensions of the cushion. The dimensions sit directly to the right just doesn't fit well for me. That may be caused by my second issue in that the X is the same size as everything else. I had to stare at it for a few seconds to realize what it was. Its not a huge deal but it does sort of bug me.

    The "more" button does nothing? I clicked it and waited.. And waited.. And then realized there wasn't "more" to see. Either add more things or remove that from the site until it actually serves a purpose.

    Wait. I just clicked products and there actually is More! So I am not sure why that doesn't work when I click that option.

    There is no blog? Again, I would remove it until it has something to show.

    I do agree with Bleau, more of a description would be a good thing.

    Other than that, it looks nice, if you picked a theme then thats not really your work, but I will credit you on your choice of themes. If you built the theme yourself than I applaud your simplistic design as well.

    Sorry but you are selling pillows with logo with antlers...

    The design is nice and clean but too standard IMO.

    You have no SEO.

    I think you should build a business identity. Then make the website according your business strategy.

    If you're getting 1-3 sales a week from 200 views, that's a pretty good conversion ratio...especially depending on whether or not your own views are being tracked (if they are, your conversion ratio is actually higher, and that's a good thing). That means your design probably shouldn't be messed with too much.

    Your blog is empty. Either write something useful and original and be prepared to maintain it, or don't bother having it. It's a binary option.

    As far as SEO is concerned...there's not a whole lot you'll be able to do with the platform you're on. Big Cartel, from what I know of it, is designed to be "easy" for people to build storefronts and sell things. The problem is that "easy" equates to "low risk, very low reward." So a lot of the things you'd want to be able to do probably won't be available to you (h1 tags, decent descriptions, breadcrumb navigation, meta tags). So ultimately you may have a decision to make as far as getting off of Big Cartel is concerned.

    No one has touched base with you on this little matter yet but it is the thing that bugs me most. There is no need to put a back to site on the home page. To my experience little mistakes like this aren't a problem to the average shopper but to a professional be it company, operation or employer this can be a hit on your attention to detail. I think this is just a sales site that you put together to sell your product so if that is the case then just leave it but if you ever plan on displaying the site in a portfolio page or using it as an example I would suggest removing it.

    I didn't comment on it because it's likely part of the template and can't be adjusted. A lot of the third-party carts are pretty rigid.

    I like it! It’s simple as it should be in this case. But to be honest I love even more your products! Really awesome pillows! Is it digital printing or screen printing? Cheers!

    Personally I just hate websites that do not show prices straight away, it is annoying to have to put the mouse over each cushion to see the price of it. Simplicity is good, but too much of it hurts user experience.

    Simplicity is beauty my friend. Your website looks simple and clean. I just want to suggest though that if you have discounts or special offers, better place it in your front page. Aside from that, update your blog from time to time - it's very useful to for seo purposes. Add privacy policy to your website and in your contact page, add your physical address and phone number.
