Ever wish there was some magical way to make your ecommerce business just look and perform fantastically?
Well, good news, there is a magical trick! In 2018, magic can happen for your business with the use of effective visuals—particularly the visuals and themes you use in your online storefront.
To put it simply, the magic of visuals helps you perform well digitally as a business. Brick and mortar storefronts have a leg up on ecommerce businesses because customers have the opportunity to physically view products in person, touch them and observe the quality. It’s hard to compete with that in a digital store. As the owner of an online business, this is the challenge that you face: recreating the “magic” of your products and store experience in a digital way.
But, if you are struggling to create a strong visual experience for your customers, don’t sweat it! Magical magento themes are here to save the day!
With the right Magento themes, you can feature your products in a way that lets you compete with and even beat the brick-and-mortar experience. In this article, I am going to review what makes a great Magento template work well and take an in-depth look at several Magento templates you can use to give customers the greatest customer experience they can have from the comfort of their smartphones.
What to Look for in a Magento Template
The look and experience of your online storefront matters just as much as its functionality, particularly nowadays when 38% of people will leave a website if they find the layout unattractive or difficult to navigate!
So in this case, looks are everything…
Before we get into the details of how to pick Magento themes, here are basic necessities your ecommerce storefront should have:
- High-Quality Visuals: Quality photography and video—particularly for products—is incredibly important to the success of your Magento template. Your visuals help your customers decide if they want to purchase a product.
- Mobile-Experience: People now use their mobile phones to shop more than they use desktop computers, so you need a Magento theme that is designed to provide a great mobile experience.
- Intuitive Design: A good Magento theme should easily guide customers to the products they want and through the purchasing experience. Shopping is hard enough without having to fight your way through the store.
- Easy Checkout and Functionality: The biggest thing that will hurt your sales is a terrible checkout experience. You could easily be losing more than half your customers if your checkout is poorly designed.
