Is it a good idea to put adsense ads in a store website? What if the user forgot about the 120$ cart items by visiting another site through the ad which gives you .12$?
The site is really professional and awesome. But i would recommend affiliate marketing rather than adsense ads in store sites because you can open the links in new page if you like and also get higher money per transaction with affiliates.
Looks very neat and clean i must say. I like the name of the website as well. The ads do flow nicely with the website although I feel if you're not careful people might click it thinking its going to lead to something in your website when truth is it won't.
On the contact page it might be a good idea to list a phone number and some type of business address. This could even be a PO box. People want to see that everything is legit and I know personally this is one thing I tend to look for.
I do like how you can switch currencies. I have no idea how the pound and USD co mingle so it's nice to see to be able to compare.
Somewhere on your site you may want to list how you ship your products. Another big thing I look for. Also shipping prices is helpful as well.
One big thing that I have read about and it makes a lot of sense is why do you need to register to buy something? I forget where I read about this (prolly cracked.com) but it is one of the biggest problems with online shopping. People are just too god damn lazy to register. You can always make it an option though so if the user wants to register to receive special offers or keep there CC on file it can be done to allow for easier access the next time.
Thanks for the feedback guys.
And thanks for the compliments and cristicisms.
I will look into sourcing some affiliates for replace the google ads, as thre policy states you cannot open ad's in a new window.
Yes, i may have to put my address on there, but i work from home, and i dont particularly lik eot put my home address on.
Yes, i believe registering for a site to buy one item is a hassle.. and there is an option to purchase as guest, and it creates a tempory account automatically to process the order. But... it was a pain to setup. I may attempt it again as this would definately be a bonus.
And i'll certainly add the postage details.
You can actually use a PO box for the company address. It's actually quite a common thing to do.
Anyways, hope the site is doing well.
By the way, instead of google ads, if you wanted to keeps ads, you could always offer ad spots on your sites to other companies that don't sell products. Like websites that review products instead of sell them, like bloggers. There was a site to set this up... I can't think of the name at the moment... Ah, buysellads.com that is probably the only way you'll make some decent money off of ads.
Wow Hammy.... nice site I must say.
Looks quite professional and attractive to the eye as well.
The only thing thats bothers me is that one can see right through the menu bar and tables grid.
But otherwise it looks like a good shop.
Keep it up the work.
