“Why [my seo app, facebook ads, etc] isn’t getting me more sales?”
- How long has it been?
- Have you touched it at all?
The timing is really important. Trying something new such as an SEO app for Shopify takes time.
Using this example, Google itself can take a few days or a few weeks before it recrawls your site. Then add time on top of that before you start to appear in search results.
So if you tell me it’s been a week or two, my next response is to be patient. Even if it’s been a month or more, still be patient. Some stores take months before Google will start to index your site.
The reason I ask if you’ve touched it at all, is because when you make and changes to your [seo app, facebook ads, etc], you’ve essentially started your test over again.
Testing is really important with ecommerce stores. What works for one may not work for another. It’s best if you give something a try, let it sit for a bit (see above on timing).
There is a fine line between being patient and wasting time. I get that. So there isn’t a magic number of days. Use your tools such as Google Analytics over the period of at least a month maybe two, before you make any conclusions if something is working or not.
If you feel like something isn’t working, make a minor change. Test for another few months and see how it goes.
Making too many changes too fast will only hurt you in the long run.
So be patient!
