The challenge

Stones4Homes came to me with a outdated site that wasn't performing for them. With declining sales and an unresponsive website that wasn't working well for their customers, they needed a breath of fresh air to reinvigorate their online shop and improve sales.

How I helped

As well as creating a clean, responsive design powered by a WordPress ecommerce solution, I worked closely with Stones4Homes to migrate a wealth of content from their existing web presence, preserving SEO value and search rankings for their landing pages and well-ranked products.

I added a raft of features for their admin team too, such as a 'buy as a customer', custom product shipping label generator, and order date picker.

Finally, the real challenge (and fun part of the project) was developing a highly-customised product pricing model that factored in customers' postcodes and delivery. The whole solution is a well-crafted website that's designed to make it easy for their visitors to find what they need and make a purchase.
