One of our more interesting challenges was to construct an e-commerce website and blog for Our Lady’s Gift Shop. One of the main challenges being that the customer themselves had held back from doing this for many years. Getting to know the product range and the specific requirements needed for this customer to be able to manage their online e-commerce prescence in its various forms took both us and the customer down some unfamiliar and challenging paths. Creating the perfect e-commerce solution is always a learning curve for us and our customers, but we believe our experience over 20 years of dealing with online solutions for retails customers gives us an edge and allows us to make decisions based on that experience.
E-Commerce – Catholic Gifts Online
Everything we did needed to be as familiar and intuitive as possible with the customer wanting to take as much responsibility ongoing for various areas such as SEO themselves.They sell a wide range of Catholic gifts, from the simplest of Rosary Beads, Baptism and Christening Gifts, First Holy Communion Gifts and other products which are more precious or unique such as 9ct Gold Devotional Medals, Hand Painted Wooden Crosses from a Fairtrade Co-operative in Latin America and Holy Land Olive Wood products.
These were products that we just didn’t know and the customer understood in depth as many of the products they had been sourcing themselves directly for years. So we learned a lot from each other and we still continue to learn as we strive towards making their commerce website a continuing commercial success.
We are based in Guiseley (just north of Leeds) but we do travel around the UK to work with customers, and we are increasingly working with more and more customers over seas. Don’t worry if you are not completely familiar with e-commerce and are frustrated because you know selling online would give you access to a much larger customer base.
