Where can I ask for advice / critique on my shop?

Is there somewhere I can go to ask for advice and critique on my shop? I am having trouble attracting any views on some items and I wonder if it is my titles, tags, photos, or just the things I am selling in general....? Is there an appropriate place to ask for advice? Any advice would be much appreciated!

you can go to teams and search for critiques. everyone says sassy critiques is good.. but honestly, the same goes for everyone, so if you search around the forums for relevancy and titles and tags you'll find plenty of information. Really the advice is the same for everyone regardless of what you're selling.
I will say that off the bat, since google reads the first few lines of your descriptions and the first few lines of your description say this:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄ Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ● Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ

instead of describing your item for sale, this is not a good idea, even though it looks nice.
Oh really? I only recently changed to that (matter of days) because I thought my shop must be too boring to get views! Ha! I shall head over to teams now and thank you for your words, I have learned something already! :)
I haven't had any luck with any replies over there, if anyone has any other suggestions? Actually it's probably a time difference thing and nobody is around to help maybe? Maybe I will try again tomorrow :)
Bel.... you won't get an immediate response, even if there is a time difference. We are all sellers helping each other, and sometimes we get busy with our own work too. Just try to be patient, and read up on SEO, and relevancy topics here in the Forum to learn what you can just from previous threads.

Also look through the Announcement section of the forum to learn about changes, and get admin's advice too. :)
I thought I was being patient lol 7hrs is very patient for me. I Have been reading up but still find it confusing and there is also only so much reading one can do and when nothing happens shop wise I'm pretty sure I'm doing something wrong still. Thanks though I will check back / try again tomorrow. It's Night from me now though. :)
I don't want to be begging for help so if someone could just point me to where I should be reading in case I have missed something. I realise every shop can't be critiqued and people are busy and so I will try and help myself as much as I can, but would appreciate a gentle nudge in the right direction...? :)
I can't offer any advise as I am very new to selling, but at a glance your shop looks very interesting. I'll be checking back for more items. :-)
Thank you Jenn R. I was beginning to feel as invisible as my shop is ;) I shall return the favour and have a look around your shop now. Good luck!
