Shirt Collective's homepage WooCommerce website design with model in banner area

WooCommerce Website Design

Selling your products and services online with a WooCommerce website design can be the first step to automating the purchasing process for your company. Shirt Collective was looking for a simple to manage and cost-efficient solution to sell their t-shirts online, and WooCommerce was it.

WooCommerce Website Design

Shirt Collective was looking for a simple to manage and cost-efficient solution to sell their t-shirts online, and WooCommerce was it. By creating a product database, managing price, shipping, and sales across the board are easy. We focused on several key components to creating an enjoyable user experience:

  • High-impact home page
  • Minimal easy-to-navigate design
  • Large product imagery
  • Newsletter Sign up
  • Paypal Integration

These five elements of this WooCommerce website design were important not only to the client but would be to the user. Creating a clean, conversion-optimized experience for visitors is the goal of any website, but especially important for brands looking to compete online. Capturing visitor information with a newsletter signup or blog subscription can be critical to generating and nurturing leads.  Not every user will come to your site ready to buy- in fact, the average is 3%.

Maintaining a relationship with those that show an interest in your products and services can now be accomplished with automated marketing strategies.

Homescreens of desktop and mobile website design for Downers Grove Auto Rebuilders

Mobile Website Design

We created a mobile-friendly version of our client’s site when it was launched many years ago, but over time, Google updated their standards for mobile website design and it required a re-tooling.

The original site was built on WordPress making it an easy conversion from a desktop-only site to a layout that smoothly responds and adapts to any screen size. More than half of all searches come from a mobile device now, meaning it is almost equally as important to have as the traditional desktop version.

Downers Grove Auto Rebuilders stayed ahead of the curve and maintained their visibility in search engines, even as their competitor’s created their mobile sites. We now work with them on a regular basis to keep current on both content and Google algorithms, helping further maintain their placement in search results.

Remarketing Ad Design

Our client was looking to improve the return on investment of their pay-per-click campaigns for wakeboard towers and accessories.

Man speaking to camera about Unicus Fitness' video marketing project

Video Marketing

Frank Nunez wanted to tell the world about the inspiration behind Unicus Fitness without repeating it millions of times.  The opportunity arose after taking portrait photography of his staff and realizing we had about thirty minutes to spare.

Unicus Fitness Video Marketing Project

We decided to set up an impromptu video shoot. On an extremely limited time frame with two minutes of test shots, we captured our client with a personal and professional piece of video marketing for his brand. We added photos of Frank in his college and bodybuilding years to engage the user with a visual sense of his history, starting as a skinny Michigan fan to a slightly larger Chicago fitness professional.

We uploaded the video to YouTube and embedded on the About Us page of the Unicus website.

Watch the video here.

One minute of video is worth 1.8 million words- not to mention it is the most viewed content on the internet.  We can help your company create engaging, entertaining and informational videos your audience will gravitate towards.  Creating a video marketing strategy does not take a Hollywood budget.

Man talking into two-way radio for a web banner advertisement

Web Banner Ad Design

The nation’s largest B2B distributor of Motorola two-way radios hired us to create a click-inducing web banner ad design.

Looking to advertise their new promotion of one free radio with every six purchased, we created a series of high-impact, industry-specific banner ads. These would increase web traffic and visibility with contractors, manufacturers and property managers. They were placed on other high-traffic sites to direct users to personalized url’s that are specific to that audience. This helps increase click through and conversion rates.  It will also increase brand awareness with consumers who have a pre-established trust with the site you are advertising on.
