A big part of a successful store is it’s ability to convert traffic into sales, and this is where most store’s fail. Their conversion rate is low and that means, it doesn’t matter if you send high quality traffic to your store, you will still not get any sales.
If this is you, here are a few tips to help you increase your conversion rate:
- 𝙊𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧 𝙁𝙧𝙚𝙚 𝙎𝙝𝙞𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙜
This is a great and easy way to instantly increase your conversion rate.
People are more likely to buy something which cost’s $30 + Free shipping compared to a product that costs $25 + $5 Shipping.
It’s a psychological trigger and you need to take advantage of it.
You can argue that this will eat up your profit but there is a simple walkaround it, add the shipping cost into the selling price of the product, as simple as that.
If you already offer free shipping on your store, make it known to the people. Have it mentioned in banners and different places where everyone can see it.
- 𝘼𝙙𝙙 𝙍𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙚𝙬𝙨:
People buy based on what others are buying and reviews are a huge way to sway a potential customer into a paying customer.
One study found that 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations, and 72% of consumers say positive reviews make them trust businesses more.
Millennials, in particular, trust user-generated content 50% more than other media.
Also make sure you add picture reviews to your store and not just text reviews because they have more credibility and people will trust them more.
Also choose reviews that are relatable and connect with the reader as that will have more conversions.

Scarcity and urgency are two great marketing strategies that you could use to increase your conversion rate.
In case you don’t know what these terms mean, this is for you!
Really simply said, scarcity means that you only have a limited amount of that product (“Buy now, only 100 left in stock”).
This means that your store visitor needs to buy it now or might regret it later on when the product is out of stock.
And urgency means that there is a time limit on a product sale, for example.
For example, when you have a 50% discount on a product and you say that it will only be there for the next 24 hours.
After that, the price will return to the normal price again.
These are very effective if done properly, just make sure they seem genuine and not spammy.
Those are 3 quick tips to help you increase your conversion rate and get more sales.
Hope this helps you, if you have any questions leave them in the comments below and I’d be happy to answer them.
Wish you all the best.
