About the Shopify business

I sell digitally manipulated photography as well as some straight photography. I have been in business since 2003 and have been through many different website platforms. Up until this year I also participated in art festivals but I've become physically unable to do the festivals so I am focusing on website and gallery sales. It is going reasonably well but I am having trouble with determining the best advertising to do and upcoming Shopify changes (Shopify 2.0 is confusing) My target market is middle class to upper middle class homeowners.

Describe the experience

I chose the theme because it was free and simple and had what I needed. I prefer a simpler website because the images are what need to shine and my product is not impluse driven. It is something that people buy that requires thought and reflection. I like the theme because it is simple but it has some drawbacks. I have recently started with Pinterest and they want me to add an "ad to cart" trigger for Pinterest and I'm finding through research that it is not possible and minimal does not lend itself to modifications easily. I'd like to move my email subscriber box to a different part of the page and also to use my mailer lite box instead of the provided one and I can't figure out how to do that. Possibly other themes are easier to modify

Feedback or suggestions for the theme developer

It is a great theme for starting out but there is a lack of flexibility. Overall I think there should be more information on themes in general. It is very confusing the choose a theme in the first place and I didn't know what I would need when I first moved my website to Shopify.

About the Shopify business

Apparel brand to benefit dog rescues. It launched in August 2020. Currently getting very little traffic as my focus has been on my brick-and-mortar store. My focus is to update the website using the Minimal theme and build revenue.

Describe the experience

It’s simple. Easy enough to use. There are not many options with the theme itself, but it is very easy to integrate various Shopify apps. I love that it has a very clean look and very few bells and whistles that hide the overall purpose of the site.
