With some of the biggest sale events of the entire year (Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas) coming up, you need a Shopify store that's rock-solid.
The last thing you need is to be spending a small fortune (and a ton of your time) on executing marketing strategies flawlessly, only to have your bottleneck be the one place where you actually need your customers to convert. 🤦
If you're not thinking about optimising your Shopify store now, you truly should be.
These events are going to catch up to us fast.
What are we focusing on most right now on our clients' stores that is absolutely making the difference?
It's what we call the low-hanging fruit that is going to increase the conversions on your store. Plain and simple.
What does that include?
- A Speed Audit
- Image Optimisation
- Fixing Your Site Errors
A Speed Audit
Plain and simple, we're going to run your site through tools we use internally to figure out what's causing speed issues on your site.
We're then going to give you a full report on what action needs to be taken.
Why is this the most important thing you can do as a Shopify merchant? Because as you and I both know, our customers do not have patience.
In the same way you and I consume content on the internet, if a site is taking longer than 2-3 seconds to load on mobile, typically your customer isn't hanging around.
They've already clicked the back button and they're gone before your pixel even got a chance to fire.
They've bounced, you can't retarget them and you lost your opportunity.
Don't be that store owner that loses the customer before they even entered.
At least get them in the door so they can explore your products and your offers. Otherwise, you're truly wasting your time and money.
One of the biggest issues we see on Shopify Stores? HUGE image files and oversized images.
Again, in 2019 your customers are looking for an ever fasting shopping experience with less friction.
Give it to them and get those images optimised.
Fixing Your Site Errors
If we had a dollar...
After image optimisation, this is the second-largest issue we see on Shopify Stores.
The worst part? You probably don't even realise it's happening.
Ever installed a Shopify app and removed it later?
By and large, chances are the code is still knocking around in your theme files.
One of the biggest issues with uninstalling Shopify Apps is that once you've "removed" the app, the app developer no longer has access to your theme files and couldn't even remove their code if they wanted to.
Now, multiply this by maybe 20... or 30 apps.
That's a lot of old, useless files knocking around that are probably still trying to fire off requests.
We're going to take a look at your theme file, compare it with the apps you actually have installed and actively use, and then remove the old app files still hanging around totally unnecessarily.
Better yet, we'll conduct a process we call "conditional loading".
– What the heck is conditional loading?
Apps do not need to load on every page of your website.
For example, if you have a subscription app, then it's highly likely you only need that app to run on your product pages.
Having that app load on your homepage, collection pages, blog pages, FAQ pages, and so on is a complete waste of resources and putting an unnecessary load on your users' device.
We'll make sure only the apps that are required on each page are the ones that actually load.
Fewer apps loading = faster website for you.
With only a few weeks to go before these sale events begin, do not leave it until the last minute to begin trying to fix this stuff.
The competition for attention has never been higher.
Customer acquisition costs have never been higher.
Don't waste your hard-earned cash.
Invest in your website and execute with the best chance of converting.
Good. That's what we're here for. Message us today and we'll truly tell you if we can help.
If we can't and you've already nailed everything - kudos, you're doing a great job and we'll tell you so.
