When it comes to dropshipping with Shopify, a lot of self proclaimed experts don’t actually reveal much.

Especially not for free.

We reveal it all. 

From our ad strategies to the actual products we’re promoting, we’re completely transparent!

There you will discover how to create and launch your very own Shopify dropshipping business.

After Bizathon3 move move on to Bizathon4 & Bizathon5.

We provide all the training you’ll ever need launch, scale and automate your Shopify business.

Shopify Profit Hacks For 2018

To  begin 2018 we really dissected everything about CommonPanda.

We want to know exactly what worked for us and what didn’t.

This was important to us, because it would help us understand our customers buying process.

We had a couple of winning products already.

But we needed more sales and a better conversion rate.

A 1%-2% increase in conversion rate would be a noticeable improvement in: 

  • Ad Spend
  • ROI
  • and Profits

Here’s how we did it…

Utilize Lucky Orange Heatmaps 

Luck Orange Heat Map Example

The first thing we needed to do was analyze our heatmap data.

Heatmaps reveal quite a bit of customer data.

You can see exactly where they focus their attention, for how long and when they go after.

If you have a high bounce rate, it’s relatively easily to discover why.

These are the 4 Shopify hacks our heatmaps reveals…

Hack #1 – Smart Shopify Homepage Design

Ideal Shopify Homepage Examples

The homepage is the first page customers see, and it needs to be full of products. 

Aside from top products, your header navigation needs to be present, as well as your footer navigation.

You can see how we laid out CommonPanda for inspiration.

This is what every Shopify homepage needs:

  • Primary Categories
  • Best Selling Products
  • Header Navigation
  • Footer Navigation (with links to shipping, refund and privacy policies)

Hack #2 – Converting Product Page

Ideal Shopify Product Page Hacks

This is the most important page on your Shopify Store.

It’s the page where visitors can actually purchase your products.

Similar to your homepage, the product page has four primary aspects:

  • Visual Product Description (include images)
  • Countdown Timer (scarcity sells)
  • Related Products (below primary listing)
  • Loox Reviews (app that delivers social proof)

Hack #3 – Optimized Cart Page

Perfect Shopify Cart Page

More than 90% of store owners ignore this.

And because of that, a lot of people see prospects dropping off at the cart page.

Your cart page should include some copy that reiterates the scarcity and encourages the immediate completion of the sale.

Again, you can checkout CommonPanda.com for inspiration. 

Hack #4 – Branded Checkout Page

Converting Shopify Checkout Page

You checkout page should be on a white background. 

The other colors should match the colors from the rest of your website.

Additionally, be sure to include your store logo, like you would for any other page.

This is all easily customizable from within your Shopify dashboard (“Theme Customizer”).

Finally, you’ll also want to have a countdown timer on your checkout pages as well.

We use an app from ConversionPirate, you can get here.

These four Shopify hacks have had a tremendous impact on our business.

We’re confident they will impact yours as well.

That’ll do it for Episode 8 – Great work!
