I want to start by saying I LOVE MY STORE! I am very sorry to have to list it, but I also work a full time job and have developed health issues, and neither are allowing me the time or money the store needs to have devoted to it. I'm also very proud of what I have accomplished so far on a serious learning curve and with my tiny budget. I started with $500.00. I made all the newbie mistakes last year.
I pay for the seo on adwords on a shoestring budget of $3 a day, so I have not been able to see the store's full potential, but it's there! The store has started to show a profit since May. It's modest, but it's a start for someone with the time and experience to put into the store. The rest of sales are coming from Pinterest and social buttons. I do feel this store could use a phone # and a dedicated person answering for service and calls. however I currently use a texting service and very rarely receive any. Returns are very rare.
Someone that understands the funnel better than me and can analyze the checkout process to find the drop off will see a big improvement. 550 add to carts so far this year should have more than 136 sales so far. Obviously being able to put more money into the adwords daily will also bring in more sales.
Christmas is huge. Last year I sold 70 gift basket in 4 weeks. This year, I am using a gift basket vendor and expect an even bigger Christmas just from that one item type.
The store has 4,000 items currently. I have put in hundreds of hours to adding product and there are a few thousands more to add from my vendors.
I currently have some independent brands on the site that were recently added and with some marketing budget behind them, will do really well. I also am one of the 4 or 5 US stores carrying Canadian brand Perth Soap Co. I have some physical inventory of this and the rest of the items are drop-ship only.
