    My goal has always to make a passive income of 40 a day. It doesn't seem to hard and completely within reach. However, the problem is I am completely new to all of this. I have no marketing experience, web design experience but these kinds of obstacles have never stopped me before.

    I decided on focuses on a niche that will grow but has no clear "big brand" dominating the niche. My facebook account has reached 150 followers from just pure posting and following/unfollowing and an Instagram account has reached 400. I post 4-5 times a day and spend 15 dollars a day on advertising. I've continually adjusted my audience to fine tune it to about 200,000 people reach with Facebook saying its an 8/10 (whatever that means).

    I dedicated maybe a full week to designing and importing a product line I believe is trustworthy and competitively priced. As it stands, my website has been open for 3 days with traffic around 50-100 people a day.I utilize social media mostly through conversion ads, PPE ads, and Instagram ads. However, I still have not made a sale yet so I'm going to continue to fine tune the operation until I feel like its lost potential.

    If anyone could give me tips my website is known as (Mod Edit: site URL removed at OP's request). Any criticism or tangible advice is 100% welcome.

    Ill continue to update my journey.

    Thanks for paying attention.

    I don't like the font, and the price if too small, can't read the price without forcing.
    The products all have different "design", like no pattern (white wallpaper, specific positioning) making me decipher what you are selling.

    The "New" and "Sale" capture more my attention than the product, maybe put them clearer.

    A last detail is at the end of your footer, you have the payment type twice. I don't know if you did it on purpose.

    Your product page is alright.

    When I go on it with Chrome, I have something saying "Would you authorize us to send you a notification ?"
    I hate website that do this, but it's up to everybody.

    You have my opinion, do whatever you want with it ^^

    Thank you man, do you think the products are "sellable" or is it due to the design?

    I suggest you add the addon "Hurrify" and make your add to cart buttons green if possible. This will increase your conversion rates incredibly. Also try out Reddit as a traffic source, you'll love it.

    I would love to tell you that they are sellable buy I am myself trying to find products that can sell and the ones I test don't work out even if I thought they were going to haha.

    Can I ask how much traffic is coming from your Instagram ?

    my best advice is to start looking on facebook for other shopify stores that are running active ads and see their themes and product pages. It is very important when it comes to sales how your page looks and operates. If you're new to everything i would mirror someone elses layout first. Good luck man

    You need to fine tune the Web since it looks not so professional otherwise the niche is decent and I believe you can get 40 bucks daily from it
    About the conversion rate perhaps you have to target the audience better, hows you demographic setting om the ads ?

    Like zebestof said, the font could definitely use some improvements and the "New"/"Sale" labels are better removed. If you can square the product thumbnails on the homepage, that would be better. I would also put a bit more efforts on the logo if you have photoshop skills, and also add a favicon and remove the "Built with Pluto. Powered by Shopify" on the footer. Other than that the site seems to be on point, it's mobile friendly with an SSL certificate so that's a plus. The products are also sought after and well priced. The real work starts now on marketing, so keep it up.

    Holy, thanks for the responses people. Im recovering from a surgery so Im dedicating my 2 weeks to literally just this. Funny enough jiungsong I built a subreddit but it doesnt really net me any traffic. zebestof, I average about 30-40 likes and handful of follows a day but I spend maybe 5 dollars a day. Kitaman, My demographic is around 200,000-300,000 people Im trying to find the right balance at the moment since I just started but apparantly my relevance score is 8/10. I dont know how much weight that holds. Should I continue to narrow down the audience?
