Why don't visitors buy?


My site is getting on for a year old and although I share it a lot on social media (and get plenty of likes etc), my visitor numbers are dire and making a sale is rare. Please can you have a look and say why I have this situation?

And, most importantly, what can I do to improve things?!

Thanks, Bern Ross

The paintings are nice and your website is quality. When I type site:www.modernartbypost.com/ into Google search I get 3 pages. Only a few of the paintings are in the search, and all the ones I checked were no longer available. Your pages are there, but individual paintings are not. This could have something to do with your lack of sales.

Hi Bern,

It’s Daria from Ecwid Customer Care team.

I've checked the link to your store. What I can say is that technically it works correctly: I can browse the store, view products, add them to bag and go to checkout. Also, I see that you've had a couple of sales recently, which proves once again that your store works fine.

To increase sales in your store, you should think of ways to attract more customers to your store. Sure, SEO is an important part of it. You can see how to improve it in this article: https://support.ecwid.com/hc/en-us/articles/207100509

Another big part is marketing and promotion. Share your products in Facebook and Twitter, write good product descriptions, start selling on Marketplaces and many more. You can find useful advice on how to boost your sales in our blog here: https://www.ecwid.com/blog/marketing-and-promotion

We wish you high sales and a significant growth!

Good day Bern,

I agree with previous posts, the website design and functionality is not the only key to success.

As for me you can try not so heavy (black/dark red) colors.
But gradients , for sure, will look better if you use colors that are close to each other on the palette.

Good luck!

Thank you. I take your point. The ecwid store css dictates the red background but I will experiment with colours and gradients on the other pages. Thank you again.

I agree, I'd try lighter colors and not the black/red.

There are several reasons for this type of problem and after solving issues, it is possible that visitors will buy from your online store. According to me, you must do your best for increasing the number of visitors and for this you can give some discount or offer to your visitors. One more thing I want to suggest you that you make some changes in your website and for this you can search it on the internet for example, you can look at funeralflowersphilippines.com.ph and I wish your problem will solve.
