Your home page is a very important part of your Shopify store. It tells your customers more about your brand, what they can get there and your brand’s core values. Therefore, you can help convert a customer with a good home page.

A good home page is also central to your SEO strategy. Without a good strategy for SEO, you can’t succeed because you won’t generate enough traffic.


The overall design of your home page is set by your theme. These are often designed in sections where each section can have a certain type of content (text, image, video, meta tags etc.) that you can edit. Most themes will let you swap out certain sections that aren’t applicable to your website, but that isn’t always the case. In all sections, you should be able to customize the content to fit more within your brand.

There are some fixed sections on your theme. These will be the header and footer. These cannot be moved regardless of the theme options. They can be customized and will most likely be the same on every page that you publish on your Shopify website, including all product, collection and blog pages.

The Theme Editor

There is a theme editor that allows you to add, reorder and delete sections from your theme. The theme editor is located within the left-hand side of the Shopify admin area. There are two tabs within the theme editor: ‘Sections’ and ‘General Settings’.

In the ‘Sections’ tab, you can see the page content of your theme. You can customize all the sections within this area.

The ‘General Settings’ tab allows you to make changes that are carried throughout your store. This includes the fonts, text, background colors and connecting your Shopify store to social media accounts.

Theme Styles

Most themes have more than one style that you can apply. Each style can include a different general appearance with different font, color schemes and more to distinguish itself from the other styles. To change the style you can click on the ‘Change Theme Style’ button that is located within the ‘General Settings’ tab.

There you will see a list of the available styles. You can then select the most appropriate one.
