We help agencies like yours take advantage of e-commerce opportunities

The rise of DTC (direct-to-consumer), new challenger brands and huge market shifts (cannabis and the CBD sector, we’re looking at you…) mean that there has rarely been a better chance to win great branding, packaging and web work. However that last one component can be tricky; happily though, that’s where we can step in.

Planning

We love to get involved as early as possible, and we’ll happily work with you on a proposal or a pitch. In the past this has included everything from creating a technical recommendation for an RfP response, to joining an initial scoping session with the end client, to just chatting through options and ideas on the phone.

Platforms

We specialise in two primary e-commerce platforms, delivering both bespoke builds as well as ongoing support and maintenance:

WordPress and Woo-Commerce

We love WordPress here and the WooCommerce extension turns it into a leading e-commerce platform.

We tend to recommend WooCommerce on projects where the site is primarily a “content hub,” that sells products incidentally (or perhaps sells memberships, content subscriptions, etc). WordPress is the best-in-class content management platform abd immensely better than Shopify on this account.

That said. we have built a number of large WooCommerce builds for pure e-commerce brands and we know it is up to the job.

Shopify

If we love WordPress and WooCommerce for content-driven e-commerce builds, we love Shopify for sales-focused projects (where the content might only go so far as a blog and/or some info pages).

Shopify is just so darn easy to use, so well-supported (almost any functionality you can dream of is available as an add-on: subscriptions? Easy. Member-only pricing? No problem. Payments over 3 months? Done.), and it is genuinely a platform that grow with your business as big as it gets.

We can easily adapt existing themes to your clients’ needs, or even start entirely from scratch and build a fully bespoke Shopify site, fitting completely with the brand identity you created for your client.
