Does a 1month old shopify store with 500+ daily traffic but no sales have any value?

    I have a store with 500 daily traffics that i cant seem to convert. Only made 1 sale in the month it has been running. I have been building the IG account (aged) with FL and currently is at almost 1,500 followers and getting 70-120 likes per image with non spammy comments too. Sadly i dont have the time or money to invest in it with FB ads or reddit ads that much. $5 ads are getting a lot of traffic but no conversions so im pretty sure someone with more experience could make some money.

    FB page has 100 likes and ig has 1,500 followers.

    Could i sell this?

    If this traffic is real then there is surely something seriously wrong with your website.
    If it is real traffic then we would like to work with you on this.

    how do i check if its "Real" traffic? i got 632 visitors yesterday with 553 "Unique" which 98% (525) came from facebook. But in "refferals" im seeing weird websites marked there like "perezhilton" and "jezebel" which i have never been there.

    Whats your bounce rate?

    Im not that familiar with shopify, do you have your own .com domain? If so, did you buy it new or through auction?

    You should be using an analytics service, like Google Analytics, which will provide a bounce rate. For example, if you have a high bounce rate, it would be an indicator that your traffic may be bots, or otherwise very un-targeted traffic. On the other hand, if you have a normal to low bounce rate, you could wager a guess that the quality of your traffic isn't necessarily your issue and move on to other diagnosis.

    I was asking about the dynamics of your domain for roughly the same purpose; many auction domains may still receive considerable amounts of traffic from existing backlinks, but wouldn't bring people to your site that were wanting to be on your site. Again, that type of issue would likely be reflected by a bounce rate.

    500+ uniques per day to a store with no purchases isn't just odd—it means something is very wrong with your approach.

    It's hard to make many guesses without knowing more about your site/niche/methods.

    If you'd like to talk more specifically feel free to PM me.

    If not, good luck!

    Oh ok thanks. I noticed i have a lot of spam on my email. And they know my info like name and state. i dont wanna say it came from godaddy (selling info or something) but it is really suspicious. The 500+ traffic is coming almost all from FB ads i have running so at least i know the traffic is from people interested. I also have traffic from instagram and reddit.

    No. I have $5 shipping on US and Free shipping on 99.99+ orders.

    Its been my experience that godaddy absolutely information to third parties.

    Id suggest change your email on your account with them. Its hard to find, and they save it 2 different places. Know, however, that you wont receive emails about your account.

    I set up a separate email for just them, and it has more spam than my primary email.

    Godaddy is the fckin worst.
