About the Shopify business

I'm a professional artist/painter who sells original paintings, art prints, events and commissions through my Shopify site. My business launched in 2020 but didn't gain sales until 2021. My target audience is professional women 35+ based in the United States.

Describe the experience

I purchased the Impulse theme because I liked the layout and aesthetic. It also includes features like announcement banner and email pop-up, so I don't need additional Shopify apps. Although the menu layout is nice, it was a little difficult to set-up. One con is that I can't change the color of the Sale and Sold Out notification on products without editing code. Overall, it's a good theme but may require custom coding based on your needs.

About the Shopify business

Children’s clothing, reusables. Launched in August 2020, target market is grandmothers and moms of babies - 7 year olds. It’s going well. I wish I had more time for it.

Describe the experience

It’s good! I love the look of it, very clean and easy to navigate. I’ve had many compliments.

I didn’t understand how some features worked and thought impulse would help. It didn’t solve the problems but I love the theme.

About the Shopify business

Women accessories, since 2015, stopped in 2018 and now planning to restart!

Describe the experience

It's a cool fast theme. Could be better in product page details and in different layouts.

I set it up because I ve seen it in a friends shopify store.

About the Shopify business

We make bison apparel, socks, gloves, hats, etc.. have been using impulse for over a year, and our target market is 25-70 year old outdoors enthusiasts, has been quite effective.

Describe the experience

At least for the moment, we love it. Very happy with it's mobile performance, which seems to be doing pretty well. I am not as excited about the page load speeds, but that might be other issues. I would love something faster, but for now, this is good.

We moved from Mobilia to Impulse, partly because of the menu features, quick view and a couple of other layout features. We had Sprucely Designed do the setup and customization.

About the Shopify business

I'm selling Chewma Protein Bites, a savory snack that's gluten and grain-free, low-carb and high protein. The site launched in early March and I just started getting orders. The target is the "whole foods mom". On the go moms who don't have time to stop for a meal.

Describe the experience

The theme has clearly delineated blocks for different functions. While I am not the developer, I have been able to make some changes, such as increasing logo size on header, pretty easily. There are other areas that are a little more challenging to update such as the footer. I had to hire a developer because I was adding bundles and this required a third party app.

I selected this theme at the recommendation of a shopify developer. it's a good use case for a more limited line of products that are new to the market and require more images
