We first had discussions with My Trade Product about how we could help them drive traffic and sales through their existing Open Cart website. We recommended a deeper audit of the website from a UX and functionality perspective as well as to learn more about how it had been set up for SEO. The results of this audit showed that the site would potentially be a bit of a block on any digital marketing we could do, and therefore the conversation switched focus into whether a move to a new website would be the best approach.
We knew we could quickly help them onto the Shopify platform, and this would deliver the functionality and foundations they needed to grow. The team were at this point currently split across Wales and Perth, Australia but a few late night meetings and a collaborative team work meant the site went live within a couple of months.
With the website live, we moved into a digital marketing support role, using Google Shopping to drive the conversion part of the funnel, whilst looking at content and social media activity to boost awareness. The next phase is now underway to build on the success of the winter months, ready for an even better 2021.
