I had reduced the slider size by 200 px. Now my customers should be able to see the featured items. :)
For the speed of the website, that is the best I can do. Not sure how to reduce the loading time. Even back home, I am taking around 3 to 5 sec to load the front page.
My items are all consignment based, therefore I would not be able to do any size exchange for my customers. I know in the states, it is possible.
Will also make the measurement page more accessible, so that customers will know how to find out if the clothes fit them well.
It's a nice site. Looks a lot like a Wordpress style site. But that's OK. Need to tighten up the height a little to SHOW THE PRODUCTS! The bottom slideshow is NICE !! Should be better higher up by 100 - 200 px. Maybe can shrink the middle images a little too.
It is elegant, clean, colors are good. Have to look too hard for home button.
OH, the top slideshow did not start for over 10 seconds. That is too slow, make it 5 or 6 seconds.
When nice products do not sell, the reason is trust and fear of no fit. Your About Us must focus on Your Address. Real company address, phone number, Returns Address. Speed of returns, replacements? Filming one model or two in a video section might be good, or on a home page "walk on" with transparent background or pop up.
Emphasize Customer Service and Quality. The prices look reasonable. Make more statements about Quality of items. Say they are not cheap costume jewelry. What guarantee? how do you stand apart? What is your competitive advantage?
Don't go international. People don't trust going too far. It is TOO expensive marketing. You can not depend only on organic marketing. YOu need to appear in some local area touted list of better suppliers and refer to it from top of your site: "Named Better Online Women's Clothing Online of Singapore by ______________".
I think maybe online clothing is difficult, In USA mainly only Well-Known Brands and well known stores are successful online.
I really think the concept is difficult. All online is getting VERY difficult because so crowded. The whole world does not fit on Google, sorry. It will be time for BIG CHANGE within 2 or 3 years.
Raise prices a little and then run Sales, discounts. Now everybody wants a sale. Give them only 10 days or so at a time. "Buy Now and Save !!",
The site over all is a little slow. That's a problem with generated pages.
