Create a pleasant, functional eCommerce environment for your customers. It’s the least they (and you) deserve.
Year on year, online spending just keeps growing. To get a piece of the action, you need a scalable, functional, attractive eCommerce website. And that’s our speciality.
Moving into eCommerce – or improving your existing presence – can be a treacherous journey if you put the job in the wrong hands. You need a team which understands how customers think and how they behave online; people with great ideas and the skills to breathe life into them; true experts in user experience. You need dv8media.
It’s not just about creating an online shop. Since we started building eCommerce sites in 2002, we’ve become experts in all the crucial ingredients that go into eCommerce success. In fact, we’ve helped numerous clients become multi-million pound online retailers.
In 2014 alone, dv8media clients collectively processed more than £30,000,000 worth of sales and some 50,000 transactions.
We work with leading software such as Magento and WordPress (as well as employing our own, bespoke platforms) to create flexible, scalable eCommerce websites that are capable of selling via multiple channels such as eBay and Amazon. Additionally, we know how to blend this software with your existing systems including Sage, Xero, third-party warehousing and in-house ERP systems. We know the importance of delivering a system which slots right in.
Is it looking like the prime time to take your sales online? It could be that your existing online shop just isn’t delivering the kinds of leads and conversions that you’d hoped for. Or perhaps you’ve been trading on other online marketplaces and you’re ready to go it alone.
Whatever stage you’re at, we’ll focus on your product, customers and current sales methods to pinpoint exactly how eCommerce should look in your environment. With a blend of creative nouse and practical application, we’ll produce an eCommerce presence that’s designed to have a huge impact on that all-important bottom line.
One of our longest-standing customers, we’ve been working with Roofing Superstore™ for more than seven years. From the company’s inception, they chose us as their trusted partner for brand development, email marketing, online marketing and eCommerce solutions.
Roofing Superstore™ is the largest UK-based online roofing merchant and is a trading style of Construction Materials Online Ltd. Back in 2007, the four people behind the concept of Roofing Superstore™ approached us with a vision of what they wanted to achieve.
Their experience in IT and web-based markets was limited, so recruiting our group of digital creatives to their team was an astute move. They wanted to become the biggest online roofing merchant and needed the right backing to make the dream become a reality.
This was a brand new entity so there were no existing materials from which to work (and actually, we love it when that happens). The crucial element was making sure that Roofing Superstore™ and all its marketing materials conveyed extremely high standards.
The client wanted to know: how could they leave new clients with no doubts as to the quality of their operation? And, how could they make sure that their investment would continue to pay off, no matter how much they grew?
We worked closely with the Roofing Superstore™ team throughout, explaining the benefits of the various tools we were selecting to build their brand. First of all, we created a parent brand: Construction Materials Online. As part of this branding exercise, we developed business packs which the client could confidently present to prospective suppliers.
We then moved on to creating the Roofing Superstore™ brand, building a highly sophisticated eCommerce platform which quickly became the keystone of the whole business model. This system provided an efficient approach to business activities: orders, quotes, purchase orders, inventory, management tools and reporting could all be managed within one streamlined system.
This system allowed the business to grow and thrive without the need for additional human resource. Outsourcing their digital requirements allowed them to keep their team to a minimum while the business gained momentum.
Well, that small team didn't last too long: Roofing Superstore™ is now made up by 18 people and is an undisputed market leader.
The systems we provide are intentionally built to be scalable, which is a good thing considering it’s dealt with tens of thousands of orders to date. The site receives significant traffic and each visitor can quickly find what they need among the 24,000-strong product inventory.
So it’s no wonder that Roofing Superstore™ keeps dv8media on speed dial for their ongoing search engine marketing, email campaigns and software/system development needs.
We did it for them, and we can do it for you. If you want to talk to us about brand development, email marketing or any of our tried-and-trusted services, please contact a member of our team who’ll be happy to help.
