Updating BBs For babies website

26 Feb

New Website design

Two months mont ago I decided that I would get my toes wet with a website devoted to my ETSY shop.   Thus was born BBsForBabies.com.  Using the Intuit website service, which is very reasonable for a simple 5 pages web page set, I generated a web page devoted to my business in just a couple hours.   This option is incredibly easy.  Using their handy web page templates it’s a no brainer to pump out a website.

However having my website online for approximately 2 months, I noticed a terrible bounce rate and low time on the site.  My products were apparently not showing through enough to lure the viewer into clicking beyond the main page.  Having a love of colors, I decided to steer away from the boring template design that I had picked out previously, and created a site from scratch., using bright blues, pale lavenders, and accents of chocolate, I created a main page showcasing some of my favorite items.  Having my website updated for just 2 days, I’ve already noticed a better click through to my shop/products and a lower bounce rate.

I would love to hear some comments/reviews on this new design, as I believe it showcases my products well, but might be too graphic intense.

    You’ve done a great job with your website! Very colorful, and eaasy to use! You’ve inspired me to try one of these for my own etsy shop, http://www.expressivestitches.etsy.com

      Thank you so much, it was pretty easy and with the mini-etsy option that ETSY provides you don’t have to use a store front for your page. Hopefully I’ll get there some point where I can use this as a second store. Good luck and let me know if you need any help.

    Your website is beautiful! It makes me want to buy, but I have no babies to buy for. I added your shop link to my website so I can remember you for when I do. (thanks for the post on that, btw)
