    Hi ladies and gentlemen, I am following the guide of nihalsad about shopify menthod and everything has been created.

    Can someone here give me some advice? I made a shop on shopify and have been running ads of it on facebook, today my website got 580+ visitors but i haven't made one sale. The facebook ads are costing me a lot as well. My website is similar to nihalsad's guide about shopify business.
    Any advice/help much appreciated. Thanks a ton. If someone want to see my website and tell me what's wrong then please comment or pm me.

    Were the products added to cart or have you observed abandoned carts?

    There could be a payment issue or otherwise your delivery time would be longer than expected.

    PM me your domain and I'll have a look.

    1. You should offer free shipping
    2. Make sure to have good detailed description. Don't describe the product, sell it.
    Watch franklin hatchetts video on descriptions

    3. Add trust badges
    4. Add return policy, privacy policy and other pages to make your site look legit

    Hi, i can't send you a pm. My profile doesn't have that option to start a conversation maybe because i'm new. Could you send me one and i'll share my domain with you. Thanks. I have about 3 people abandon their checkouts.

    Yes, the method i am following is totally different. My profit will be made through shipping only, there's no way around it.

    number of visitors doesn't always count, sometimes with a very low number of visitators you could have few orders, sometimes you can have more than 2k and no order, most important it's the quality of your visitators.

    Yeah i see. I'm stopping the Facebook ads at the moment because it's costing me a lot and with no sales it's really difficult. Might just switch up my niche and make new ads perhaps.

    It's better if you change the method

    I was following a well written guide here on BHW and he was using the same method. I would change it if someone has another guide with a different method. If you know any could you let me know?

    This website is really helpful and I've been a lurker for about a month and have started experimenting different methods. I prefer following methods because I'm very new to the world of internet marketing.

    Free plus shipping never worked for me. Just charge money for the product and give free shipping

    Because the method is already abused, if you are starting now you will only see people reaching your cart and abandon at the checkout, you can always use the common sense
    - ( cheap product price + cheap shipping)
    - ( high product price + free shipping )

    You're probably right. I'm usually always late to the party. I'll try your suggestion. I'll use my common sense now. Thank you for your help bud.

    The sell things for profit method works really well for me.

    Seriously, just operate it like a normal store, offering your products at reasonable prices. Set up a cart abandonment system and offer people a discount code to come back. You can promote your discount code on coupon websites too.

    Free+Shipping can work, but it pisses a lot of people off when they get to the checkout and see that what they thought was free is now costing them money. Hell, some people get pissed off when they see that the $150 product they were going to purchase has a $5 shipping fee and will leave.

    Just be like a normal retailer and offer sweet deals and promotions which you have already incorporated into the cost of your product.

    Yeah, makes sense. Alright, I'm going to start another store and operate it like a normal one. See how that works. Thanks.
