Enovate have developed a modern site for Little Acorns to Mighty Oaks, an E-commerce store that sells non-toxic products for the whole family.
As many of our clients do, Little Acorns found our website and made contact with us through it to discuss requirements and better our understanding of the project and what business achievements have been planned to accomplish when redesigning the site.
Whilst the client had a working website, the client felt it was time for an updated and responsive site to increase traffic, conversions and purchases/transactions made on the site. The functionality was to be improved, making an easier checkout system for the customers and an emailing system with clear communication of each transaction steps.
When the production and completion of the project specification was ready, we began working on the design of the website, which involves iteration back and forth between ourselves and the client to gain a firm understanding of what they want the website to portray their business message and steps to achieving their business goals.
Designs for the major pages in the site were created and developed, following the clients feedback at each development stage until they felt ready to approve them. Once the designs were all approved, the next stage was for the developers to start writing the code to bring these designs to life.
Due to this being an e-commerce build, the client wanted to be majorly involved and responsible for adding the photographs of the products and the descriptions written for these. To be able to do this, the client has a training session on navigating around Craft CMS, a flexible content management system (CMS) that us here at Enovate use for the vast majority of our projects. Craft CMS allows both us and the client to have responsibilities throughout the CMS, being editing and adding content wherever necessary.
During the development of the project, the client had access to our Development site. This allows them to see the project as it’s being built, and provide feedback in the early stages. This also allows testing on the site to be ran on any device, such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, and desktop PC’s.
After the launch date, both ourselves and the client were delighted to see the end results of not only the design and functionality, but also the increasing number in transactions already being made on the site in the first few hours.
The site generated 1 months revenue on launch day.
It was a true pleasure working with the team at Little Acorns to Mighty Oaks and we hope the website continues to grow into a highly successful e-commerce store.
Why not take a look at it yourself, and if you’re considering a similar project we'd love to hear from you.
