I am looking for three pages. Homepage, product page, and category page.
First page: The homepage. I would like a page with the categories at the top, with maybe a spot to say free shipping, contact us etc on the top. And then a banner spot would be good. Then, I want to show some featured products, maybe 3-4 in a row and 2-3 rows. And then I'd like to go right into the footer that has more info like about us, contact us, shipping & returns, and maybe another category listing. Like a typical footer.
Fitting some social features on the homepage may work well too. Like a facebook page like box, and twitter/g+ buttons/links.
I would like somewhere above the fold (maybe in the header?) where it says Free Shipping. Other things that may work well above the fold are Discrete Shipping, as well as a link to the returns policy and contacting us.
For the second page, the product page, you can look at a sample product page here: http://www.spacegrinders.com/produc…LARGE.html
I think this is ok. But I would like this one to be better.
A really cool infographic I saw recently about ecommerde product pages is here: http://dottvnation.typepad.com/.a/6…0d8970b-pi
I would like to get videos at some point, but don't have them yet. I like how some customer reviews are on the same page. And I don't have the ability to customize any options so don't include that. The similar products, call to action above the fold, and free shipping above the fold as well are great.
The third page, category/product listing, doesn't have to be too fancy. I have really no direction I want this to go in, but to match the homepage and the rest of the style of the layouts. One example is here: http://www.spacegrinders.com/catego…estselling
A pretty cool feature that my cart (BigCommerce) supports is the quick view that you can see on the page above.
