Selling products online is one of the best ways to grow your business, but doing it efficiently and profitably is often a struggle. You need a platform that’s powerful, but not overwhelming. Something that lets you react to changes in your market in a timely fashion. WordPress & WooCommerce let you change most of your website yourself with relative ease.
There is so much choice for businesses looking to start their e-commerce website, or move their existing one. Do you sign up to a service that claims to do the heavy lifting for you, but takes a hefty cut? Do you pay for a totally bespoke system that matches your exact needs, but only one developer knows how to use?
When you start looking around, it’s all too easy to become paralysed by choice and start drowning in jargon.
At Boom, we strongly believe that WooCommerce offers the right level of flexibility and usability that our clients need. We build e-commerce sites using it because it’s one of the most widely used platforms across all levels of e-commerce sites, and it offers a staggering range of plugins (official and otherwise) to help it suit more bespoke needs.
We find that WooCommerce helps us to help you run your business. It’s got a friendly user interface with a text editor that will feel familiar to anyone who’s used Microsoft Word. It can even be powered up to have drag and drop page building tools.
We wouldn’t say all of this if we didn’t believe it. We run our own e-commerce business in-house, which we think gives us insight and empathy that other agencies lack.
We know what it’s like when things go wrong, and we understand the impact it can have on your business. More importantly, we know how to avoid the major potholes and we can share that knowledge with you, so you can avoid them too.
