The world of eCommerce can be a daunting one once you see through the shiny veneer of a customer facing website and realise it’s what goes on behind the scenes that makes the difference. Whether it’s basic SEO, element placement or even how well a customer can search for what they want! If the ‘engine’ isn’t looked after, the whole car will break down and be useless. That’s where we come in – a website mechanic, if you will! So what do we do? Well – a little bit of everything. Whether is the design and layout, SEO, ad campaigns, product uploads, descriptions or extensions to make your life easier when managing a site, we have you covered.
Below is a small break down of our services. As we primarily work on eCommerce, that is what this is geared towards. However, if you have a blog or a personal site, we can cater to you too! Even if it’s a basic wordpress based site, we can work with you to reach the goal you want.
The design for your e-commerce website is as critical today as a good placement in a phone book or business directory was 20 years ago.
Customers are using digital methods to search for information, reviews and ideas about the products and services they are buying before they make those purchase decisions.
Your site needs to look professional, reflect your brand, be mobile friendly and free of stagnant low quality images and content that could cause people to second guess their choices.Presenting your offering using best practice methods to ensure you take full advantage of all the cutting edge mechanics for placing you ahead of the competition.
Where other eCommerce developers will simply throw a list of extensions at you, we intelligently work through your requirements, to produce the ideal blend of custom work and efficient use of our partnerships to procure the add-ons that will produce the results you desire. As well as making sure it is still easy for you to use and that you are entirely happy with the outcome.
Regardless of if your business is a side venture in the evenings or a full time enterprise employing hundreds of people, we can help with a solution to match the needs that best fit what suits you. The key is making it as easy as possible to do as much as you can in as short a time, while still having a complete and professional result. Something as simple as uploading or editing products can become a long and laborious task when done 1 at a time, or much faster and streamlined when you can just upload a file that updates everything in 1 go!
A significant part of your store is identifying the correct platform for you to work with and that will scale best with your business model. Whether you are a small business on Volusion or a larger international company on Magento, we will have the right options, advice and ability to implement to see you get the results you want.

Once the site design, platform and extensions are in order, it’s time to look at visibility. No good having a nice fancy site if nobody can find you or your products is it! That’s where SEO comes in. A lot of people look at this and say ‘I will do that later’ – this is a big mistake. SEO is critical to the visibility of your site and needs to be maintained. Whether it is an up to date robots.txt or full meta on all products, it cannot be stated enough that you should take care of this!! There is one big warning though – if any company promises you page 1 ranking in 30 days, run. I have no doubt that they will actually succeed in this, in the short term, but I will bet my life after 2 months you will sink faster than the Titanic and never be able to recover. These are known as ‘black hat’ strategies that link to hundreds or thousands of pages with little or no relevant content on them. As soon as the search engine’s algorithm’s start noticing this, you are essentially black listed. The road to recovery is a long one after that and many cannot come back at all once the damage is done. For more information on SEO and it’s impact, click here
