I was approached by a local angling and tackle shop owner who already had an online ecommerce presense but it was not delivering the results that he had hoped for.
Richard had a basic online store running on one of the major eCommerce platform providers but it had a very rudimentary design that had not been optimised for sales conversions and the website itself was not receiving very much monthly traffic. In addition there was no real cohesive online marketing strategy in place and although Richard himself was extremely capable with all things computer/internet related and was using an eCommerce platform marketed directly to business owners (D.I.Y if you like) he decided it was time to call in the cavalry and contacted daveharrison.net eCommerce Website Consultant in Ballymena
First things first, I conducted a full and extensive assessment of the current situation in terms of what was working and what needed improved. With a limited budget it was clear we would stay with the current platform (which ticked the majority of his boxes in terms of functionality/features) but would put in place a bespoke, contemporary and effective design that would not only give shoppers the confidience required to conduct their online shopping at his store but would also improve security, speed and SEO of the website. In addition I implemented a whole series of improvements to his systems and helped put in place a number of additonal optimisations, think; referral system, reviews process, improved contact protocols to name a few. I also set up an extensive google PPC campaign which continues to drive traffic to the website topping up the constantly improving organic search results
The monthly traffic, conversion rate, orders and revenue has continued to grow year on year. Richard his seen a 300% increase in revenue since we started working together
These figures serve only as indicators of how successful the projects was and show the changes over the previous 2 years, really only Richard's accountant really knows the positive effect it has had on his bottom line.
My website was in need of some TLC and I wanted someone local that I could talk to and meet with as necessary and I’m very pleased that I found Dave Harrison. Dave was upfront from the start regarding costs and time schedules. He completed a comprehensive re-design adding many new features, all on time, within budget and to a high standard. We have been working together now for about a year and I have always found him prepared to listen and flexible in his approach. Anything I have asked of him has been done 100% and I know that on occasions he has gone above and beyond. I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone.Richard McDowell / Owner / Mid Antrim Angling Centre
