use e-commerce to reach your customers
The effects of Covid have caused many challenges for all of us, not least for businesses trying to sell their products to their customers. Lockdowns and uncertainties of going out and mixing with other people have forced many businesses to sell on the internet for the first time. For other businesses it has meant that they’ve had to improve their e-commerce websites to offer products in new and innovative ways.
The change in the market place has increased the amount of enquiries for us from customers either looking for a new e-commerce web site of looking to revamp their existing site to increase sales. We're based in Bideford and have clients in Barnstaple and acroos North Devon, but we're increasingly dealing with e-commerce clients across the UK.
We mainly use wordpress for our websites and woo commerce for the e-commerce, but we are increasing building and managing Shopify sites as well. With e-commerce websites there is no such thing as an ‘off-the-shelf solution’, every business is unique in the way it sells its products, it shipping and delivery, accounting integration, stock management, the list goes on….
We are able to build your bespoke e-commerce website which will take into account your individual business needs and help you to reach new customers to grow your business.
Give us a call, send us a message. We'll arrange a meeting to discuss your e-commerce needs.

we're not gardeners, but we like to dig
If we're going to develop an e-commece website that meets your business aims then we need to do some research. We need to understand what your business goals are, who your customers are, what they want, who is your competition and the area you operate in. It is only by doing this digging that we can get a complete picture which will allow us to create the website that will be most profitable for your business.
Every business and market place is different, it would be easy to assume that every builder just build new houses, but the reality is that most don't build new houses; they build walls, they convert garages and they convert lofts! We have a large amount of experience of different industries which helps when understanding your business. Whether you're a butcher in Torrington, a florist in Barnstaple, a restaurant in Bideford or sell teddy bears online from your rural North Devon home then we can create the perfect website for you.
