E-commerce for your business

E-commerce or online shops can be effective and are easily added to a WordPress website. WooCommerce is the most popular. Although online sales are not as high as you might be led to believe (see chart), e-commerce can be a good way so sell items from your website. The initial setup takes time (and I include image Alt Tags for SEO) but updating afterwards is straightforward and you can do this yourself with practice.

Moth to a Flame Candles are a well-established craft business but had a limited online presence. Extensive product photography, a new WordPress website and an online shop were all developed in conjunction with the owner and founder member of Made in Kilkenny craft group, Larry Kinsella. Google page ranking has dramatically improved due to my SEO work. The online shop is still in production but orders have already increased through Instagram posts and a Christmas popup shop in Kilkenny. See website here. 

A great new online presence for 2019 will help offset seasonal sales and create a new market for Larry’s beautiful products.
