After being abandoned by her long distance web designer, Julia Hart was referred to me by another client who introduced me to help her detangle the mess that had been left behind by him, as well as impliment her long overdue upgrade of her live Magento shop.

After a successful upgrade to the current Magento version, a complete responsive makeover has been implemented.

The e-commerce site launched in March 2013, after satisfactory bench testing. Integration of PayPal Express Checkout and Google Shopping, Customised Analytics were also successfully included.

After extensive SEO and page speed enhancements, a good B rating was achieved at GT Metrix.

Shortly after launch, Google had gracefully listed the shop for the term “skincare shop” at position 5 amongst blue chip competitors on the first result page such as Debenhams, Marks and Spencer, The Body Shop and Selfridges. Good result.

Kent Fireplace Company

www.kentfireplace.com

The Kent Fireplace Company required a slightly special type of site to give them the ability to sell their items online. As it was not feasible to sell such large items with the view to shipping them via courier, the site was required to attract customers to shop as you would expect on a normal e-commerce store, but then visit the store with your shortlist of possible purchases you found via their site.

The staff also had to have the ability to also use the website in-store as a demonstration kiosk whilst liaising with customers to find their ideal fireplace.

The final key requirement, was the ability for full control of the content to be added by staff, to minimise ongoing costs.

The site is a complete tailor-made solution, with an idiot-proof back-end to prevent any break in the layout and design. Yet at the same time, the back end gives powerful features to give the contributing person many nice options to improve the data being input.
