Creating a sign up form
Creating a sign up form on your ecommerce website is essential to build a relationship with your subscribers and move them through the sales cycle. Signup forms have a few key elements that are crucial for the conversion of visitors to subscribers. One of these key elements is a call-to-action button, which entices the user to subscribe to your list. Typically, this CTA button will say “Submit” or “Get More Info” and is often accompanied by placeholder text.
When creating your sign up form, keep the number of fields to a minimum. More fields will result in cluttered forms and lower conversion rates. For example, if your sign up form has three or four fields, your visitors will be confused by the extra fields. Keep the number of fields to just two or three. Depending on the popularity of your brand, you may be able to increase engagement by reducing the number of fields.
Creating an image gallery
One of the most important things to consider is the size of your images. The smaller the file size, the better for page load time. According to W3C, images fall into three categories: icons, photos, and illustrations. In addition, you should use alt text for each type of image. And remember to provide keyboard access controls for closing and minimizing the gallery window. Once you’ve created your image gallery, you’re ready to display it to your customers.
Adding a mini cart
Adding a mini cart is a great way to communicate with customers. Not only does it make it easier for them to add items to their cart, but it also displays a subtotal for each item. Aside from communicating with customers, it’s also a great way to use cross-sell and upsell techniques. When used correctly, the mini cart can make shopping easy and seamless. Users should be able to add more items with a click of the mouse and qualify for free shipping or free gifts.
