Please review


I have been with ECWID since the early days and have learned so much. Although, I have still not had any official training in web design, my abilities have definitely improved.
I really would like to know how my site looks these days to the unbiased viewer, and would appreciate any critiques on how to make it better and more professional.
Thanks,
John

Some pictures doesn't look clear enough. Like the one with Coconut Oil Products, this gives your site a bit not professional look. I've recently made my site through this drag and drop website builder: http://www.templatemonster.com/moto-cms-3-templates.php. They offered plenty of different designs so I had what to choose from.

Hello,

Can you please post here a link to your store page where the images do not look clear enough? Are these the product images? Do they look the same in different browsers?

What device are you using?

The screenshots of what you see will also be of great help.

Thank you in advance.

Thanks for your reply Liza. If images are blurry, it's on my end.

Thank you Peter for the review, I was aware of the low quality shots but kept putting it off. I will be fixing those shortly. I am happy with the theme I am using, as I get better at design, it gives me the liberty to arrange my site the way I like.

How are you able to put outlines or borderlines on your right panel product browser??

Thanks for providing help on how to make their background transparent

Your store will benefit with a mobile app, have they offered ShopApp to you yet?? imagine your store in your every customer's pocket.. the marketing you can have with them.. I only hope Ecwid will make it available on Business Plan too at least.. not everyone needs the features on unlimited plan..


Best,
Ehmi

The app is not important to me right now.
Here is the script-

div.ecwid-productBrowser-details-rightPanel div.ecwid-productBrowser-backgroundedPanel {
background: transparent;
border: 1px #003159 solid;
}

You have an interesting assortment of items.

Regarding feedback on the look and professionalism. I'd suggest polishing up your product photographs. It's a never ending task to work towards improving but here are some things that have helped me a lot.

Adobe Photography Plan which give me Lightroom and Photoshop ($10/month) I use them for simple edits to brighten up photos and remove grey backgrounds. I think the invisible maniquin photos are the most professional looking. I found a video that explains how to do it. The video explains it but the key to getting rid of grey backgrounds is to light behind the product and in front of the product. I do all my photography with an iPhone 5s. I use the ProCamera App with PhotoSync to transfer the photos to my computer.

I'd like to know how you did your product search. I found that you are on ebay but I could not tell if you are using the ebay-ecwid integration. I'm starting to use it. I'd like to know your experience if you using it. Have you tried the Google Merchant integration? I tried to find you via search on google but I could not find your products in the Google shopping. I found you on facebook the "shop now" looks good.

Thanks John for your feedback,

My wife and I have been growing this business for a few years now. Unfortunately, we have thousands of product pictures, many of which were taken during our extreme amateur days. If you view our New Arrivals page, you will noticed a big change in the quality of the photographs, yes many still have a grayish background. I will definitely check out those videos you suggested and hope they will help me improve my pictures.
Our products are separately on Ebay and our website. Hoping to draw more customers over to the website through SEO practices. Ebay is our life-blood, but each sale we get on the site either organically or by promotion is less we have to pay in Ebay fees. I do not pay anything towards Google shopping or Adwords and am hoping to grow the website myself by trial and error. Thank you for checking out my Facebook shop, unfortunately, we have never had a sale from there.
Which product search are you referring to? if it's the drop-down, I borrowed those from this forum. Would be happy to share if that is what you are asking.
Thanks again you are very helpful
