Thumbs up

A few tips:
-You have an email list?A really credible list and not the sort that will get caught up in the spam filters?
-Remove any references to 'buying' from the top fold-don't start your pitch too early since potential customers are looking for information on websites.

make sure your website can be accessed on mobile phones or smart phones. if its confusing or complicated or has broken links you will never be able to achieve your target sales. Give out special offers or deals and maybe even freebies. everybody loves those!

This may be difficult to do for all items, but it will be good to have a detailed description on some products. For example on the amazon website for electronics they go into great information on the specs of the product.

You haven't mentioned properly what market you are talking about. You need to be specific and focus on something! Main thing I would say is focus on customer satisfaction. It's the key ingredient at the present moment. And, good and relevant search engine optimization is always best.

I would consider giving your site a bit of a makeover! What's great is that you can actually do this without having it be too terribly expensive these days.

Your product is great, and it looks like you know your market well. Redesigning your site so that it's a bit more open and breathable might really do you some favors in terms of traffic. It also might help you out in the search results -- a lot of things like load time and on-page optimization affect the way you appear in Google's results.

The other information in this thread is true, as well. If you wind up going with a redesign, you might want to look into something that's mobile-optimized. There are a ton of website templates that can give you exactly what you want, which is why this doesn't necessarily have to be something that puts you in the red.

Hope this helps!

Default Make Fair Deals With Your Customers

Winning is not difficult, but remaining on winning position is rather difficult. If you've been standing on victory stand and want to maintain your position, you must follow some of my tips. I would love to suggest you to be fair with your online customers. Fair deals bring back the consumers and visitors as well. Because if you once lose your valued customers, you would lose them forever.

Testimonials! Oh man, testimonials.

When you can get your own customers to talk about how much they love the experience of shopping at your store, you're able to convince COUNTLESS others that it's a good idea to do the same thing.

It's called Social Proof, and it's a huge part of online marketing (especially social).

I'd develop a program through which you reward customers who evangelize for your brand. Reward people who post cool stuff about your store on Facebook. Hold a contest to see who can come up with most creative or funniest way to talk about how awesome your webstore is. There are a ton of ways to get creative and have people start talking about your brand in a really positive way.

And it works. Well.
