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, e-commerce can be a good way so sell items from your website to a wider audience. 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. Scroll down for more info..

Moth to a Flame Candles are a well-established craft business but had a limited online presence. It needed:
- Extensive product photography – (portable studio set up in workshop).
- A new WordPress website.
- An online shop (we chose WooCommerce).
- These 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, promoted on Insta and Twitter.
Customer buying habits change, particularly in retail sales, so SMEs need to adapt in order to keep up. An online shop might just be the solution.
