There is no need to clutter your e-commerce site with pictures and text if your background is aesthetically pleasing. In fact, online stores that are well-spaced, and give the customer a chance to “breath” as they browse from webpage to webpage, outperform ones crammed with “too much.”
Thus, picking simple, bold, consistent theme colors is an easy way to increase sales on Shopify. Remember that the colors don’t have to take up the same amount of space on your site!

Some opt for a central image to focus user attention, while others break up their homepage into “blocks,” with each section conveying a different feature of their products and services. Other put a video front-and-center to engage the user right away, and give a flavor of what their product looks like in action!
Another aspect of site design to consider is where you put “clickable” buttons – including the following dynamic items:
To increase your Sales on Shopify, having these “clickable” buttons across your webpages make it more interactive and easier for users to navigate. If you have a product on sale for the next month, for example, you may want to update your site to reflect that! Adding in a “click here for our new special” button may entice customers that would otherwise keep browsing.
We’ve talked about the importance of CTA buttons placed strategically across your homepage and product pages. They should land in spots where a customer has taken in key text, images, or videos, and may be pushed to buy items if you make it easy for them. Place CTA buttons around key text, images, and videos! It makes shopping easier for the customer and will help increase your sales on Shopify.
At the top of bottom of your page, have your clickable buttons for links to social media, as well as certificates from your trust badges. They are easy to place and bring extra layers of connection and credibility to your Shopify site,
Re-evaluate your Shopify store design regularly – testing out different layouts and designs is not as hard as you think. It can have a marked impact on your store’s success, so be sure you are keeping a fresh, open perspective on the options for your Shopify theme and store layout!
