Changing approaches for changing times.
Retail is always a dynamic place. But right now, even more so. As former retailers ourselves, we understand the importance of being responsive and taking initiative. The world has changed in the last few months. When COVID-19 hit, none of us knew what would happen.
What’s happening in eCommerce right now? Who’s doing well and who’s struggling? These are the questions we’re being asked. On the whole, we have seen strong eCommerce growth across our client base. Businesses have adapted to the situation and how they engage with consumers – and in rapid time too.
Selling online for the first time
Brands who have never sold direct before now need websites in weeks, not months. With our experience working with brands like Hotel Chocolat, we’re well placed to go live in rapid time.
We’re seeing businesses continue to re-platform and build new eCommerce sites. Brands are recognising the growing importance of D2C as other channels, such as stores and wholesale, are temporarily closed or restricted.
We’re working to build new online offerings for our clients that drive a heightened customer experience. This will allow brands to build direct relationships with their audience and protect their future revenues, even in a time of uncertainty.
Magento 1 replatforming is still happening
We’re still talking to businesses about Magento 1 replatforming. The end of life deadline of June 2020 remains. Even more so now, it’s important to protect your eCommerce business and not risk this channel.
Staying on M1 exposes you to greater risk as it won’t be patched, making the switch more important than ever. We’re experts in replatforming, successfully migrating businesses like Neom, Slendertone and Highgrove, through a seamless process.
If you’re on Shopify already, you’ll need to maximise all the opportunities you can get right now. That’s where our Client Success Team can help. Experts in UX, tech, project management and analysis, we can unlock and enable opportunities to grow your sales, order values and conversion rates.
We’re determined to continue playing our part in helping our clients succeed. Unlocking opportunities during the COVID-19 outbreak, we can help strengthen your business as much as possible.
