Choosing the Right Ecommerce Solution for Your Business

There are many shopping carts out there that you could select for your business but be sure that you do your research and choose the cart that’s right for YOUR business.  Not just because your competitor is using it!  The cart we use the most is 3D Cart which provides most of our clients with exactly what they’re looking for.

Truth be told, there’s always going to be “something” about your shopping cart that you dislike.  Nothing will be absolutely perfect, but you can find something that’s pretty close.  I’ve found that 3d works for the majority of my clients and offers an affordable startup option so it doesn’t break the bank.  You do not have to purchase software up front or have a huge initial cost.  You can do a free trial and if you like it, their monthly plans are very reasonable.

A few other carts that I like are Ecommerce Templates, Big Commerce and Magento.  Magento does have a large up front cost so it’s not as feasible for small businesses.

Nature’s Premiere gets a facelift

Over the past couple of months we’ve been working on a full redesign and update of scripts, forms and business angle for Nature’s Premiere Diaper Service.  This client has been with us for the several years and receives regular maintenance by our staff.

This redesign took the store from an online boutique focused business to a diaper service focused business.  Still maintaining the boutique but not as the main feature of the site.  The goal was to make things more easily accessible for the majority of their clients which are New York locals that use their diaper service.

Along with the site redesign we also rebranded the company with a new logo / identity.   Taking a company from a kiddish-cartoony look to a more soft, modern look.

We’re very pleased with how everything turned out.  A fresh new look on their existing 3dcart platform.

Green Team Redesign

We’ve been working with Kelly Wels, president of Green Team Distribution, for many years now. This past week we gave Kelly’s distribution website a large overhaul to reflect her business’ growth. The ecommerce website is for wholesale shopping only and has some custom features such as an approved retailer directory and integrated external blog feed from her wordpress blog. So here’s the transformation!  First picture is the before – and then…..
