    I am not looking for some secret methods or to be spoon fed with exact traffic formulas. I am new to the ecommerce world and would like to know if I am going in the right direction. I am working hard on the look and overall use of the website. I have a lot more products to add but I am making sure that I am doing whatever it takes to make it in the right direction first before i go ahead and load a bunch more products.

    I have a real cool responsive theme which works smoothly on Computers and Mobile Devices. I have made sure the picture quality is good and I accept credit/debit cards via stripe. I hate Paypal as they are crooks. I added some pages and I am about to add some more.

    I think the prices are fair plus I will add a bargain bin category where i will have some t-shirts at more discounted prices.

    I offer free shipping on orders over $75.

    Every second order from the same customer will receive a coupon code for further discounts.

    I submitted to the Search Engines and created some social bookmarks and blogs for SEO traffic.

    What else could I possibly be missing? I really want to make it big and willing to work my ass off to do it. Is their something more I could implement or add to get more traffic? I did a lot of research and tried making my URL's more SEO friendly.

    The website is richforeign.com

    Thank You,
    BHW Members.

    I hope i placed this thread in the right place. I wasn't sure where I should put it so I placed it here. I assume its in the right thread category. If not, please don't go hard on me as I wasn't sure on where to place it.

    One of the things I said to myself when I landed on your site was:"I think this site is selling shirts, but I am not sure"
    I did noticed that shirt and a line saying that you offer free shipping, but I was not completely sure. Try to change that tag line (THE DESIGN THAT UNDERSTANDS YOU THE MOST ), kinda makes no sense to me.

    Looks clean and nice! Good job. Few suggestions from my side. Every time I order clothes or stuff from internet I am interested in the Shipping and Payment details. Maybe you can add two sections about these...stuff like how long it takes to process an order, what are the shipping options, in which countries are you shipping, what are the payment methods, etc.. Also maybe a FAQ section that will guide people on your website would also be cool.

    Good luck with your new business!

    I've run a decently successful online micro-niche store for a few years and one thing that has boosted sales for me is offering free U.S. shipping. I have found that even if I markup the item for more than shipping, people are more inclined to shop around when they know there will not be an additional markup at checkout. My prices are often very far from being the cheapest around, but I continue to make sales. Although, It has slowed down due to lack of motivation on my part to upload products.

    Also, maybe create a few discount codes for %5 off, or $5 off an order of $50 or more. Create 4 or 5 and send them out into social media for coupon aggregators to find them and add them to their sites. This has worked well for me to get targeted visitors ready to buy.

    One other suggestion is be creative with titles and urls. Think keyword rich, and potentially include "t-shirt" or "shirt" in your product urls, maybe by adding them to a shirt category and updating your permalinks.

    You could also create a blog that somehow complements the products and their designs, or would at least appeal to your target audience. Make sure you send those updates out on social media.

    This is also just my opinion, but I could go without the rollover images, and would rather see the the shirt on a model with white background over the closeup of the image. I personally think it makes it look cleaner.

    Overall, I think it looks pretty good, and if you continue to work at it, you will naturally get traffic, and sales. Best of luck!

    I like the mellow birds shirt. Hahahaha.

    "You are welcome to contact us via our Twitter or Facebook Page for Inquires." - Add an email option, sales, support, contact, joe blow, or whomever it should be directed to. Maybe look into a 1-800 number if things start getting big.

    "We will respond in 24 - 48 business hours." - I would change "in" to within, and drop the business from hours. Otherwise I interpret you dont look like you're monitoring your website daily, but instead check it every couple of days. A business day is only 8 hours, so you could be ... 3-6 days away!

    Also a shipping time frame would be a good idea, "Orders processed immediately and shipped within 48 hours, or % discount on next purchase" or something like that. People will actually want you to take your time then!

    Site looks good, clean and simple, from personal experience with ecommerce I would reconsider not having a paypal option putting your personal feelings aside for the sake of more sales. Since you are using Stripe I would mention on your payments page something to the effect that the buyers transaction are secure and no credit card details are actually transmitted just encrypted keys etc etc. Lastly, on your hoodies page put something like coming soon with a graphic instead of "Sorry, we couldn't find any products here."

    I come from a User Experience background , i would stay very clear of the grey background with eCommerce and fashion. Go white make your logo pop and you will notice users stay on your site longer. Also for your Featured products i would have the default featured image be the model wearing the shirt instead of just the design. Best of luck.

    I agree on this. When I opened the site a question came out from my mind. "Free shipping? of what?". A good site though.

    its relatively new. Its only a couple months old. Sorry for the late reply. So much work i had to do. I am getting about 14 visitors a day. I haven't really promoted it yet. I plan to research methods on doing just that.

    True. I just don't like the way paypal handles business and it puts me at fear for my funds and etc. because they have a crazy way of just freezing accounts for no REAL apparent reason. I get so tired of dealing with their bull shit. I just wish that people would support other payment processors more so paypal can learn that they cant keep doing whatever they want.

    Your site looks good! I agree with those who suggested that the default image should be that of a model wearing the design. I like seeing the shirt's design up close, but seeing how the shirt looks when worn would benefit site visitors more.

    Also, don't forget to proofread your content (i.e., About Us: "in many ways that we cannot being to explain"). It's minor, but worth paying attention too.

    Proofreading! It drives me CRAZY when I see simple errors. It seems very fickle as the person making the mistake, but it looks very "novice" in my eyes. It's not a big deal on social media or blogging for personal satisfaction, but when it's a business: It should be perfect. I come across magazine articles and hard cover books that have errors and I'm just wondering where editors have gone, as well as subconsciously beginning to question the "authority" of whoever is writing. I would suggest reading out loud, as it forces you to slow down and process the words.

    The graphics on the site look good (if you really want to kick it up a notch, you would blend the logos in with the t-shirt more, but this isn't necessary), but there's something about the site that makes me not want to buy a shirt from it. It's quite possibly the lack of "Sort By..." options on the site as I've come to expect those on shopping sites.
