In short: because it’s the best ecommerce platform available out there.
In a little bit more detail: according to statistics, Magento is the #1 eCommerce CMS globally. More than 150,000 online retailers
use it around the world in different sectors with different profiles.
So it’s very versatile! Magento eCommerce is an open source ecommerce system, therefore it is continuously developing thanks to its creator, Varien Ltd., and to the developer community of thousands
of programmers. A clear proof of success is that Varien Ltd. was fully acquired by eBay in 2011 because, after studying all the significant webshop applications, they saw Magento as the most promising ecommerce application for the future.
The unsurpassed advantage of Magento eCommerce is that even
its basic, community edition contains extra sales boosting functions (e.g. up-sell, cross-sell, coupon code system) that are either completely missing from other eCommerce engines or can be applied only with installing additional plug-ins. Furthermore, it sports the most up-to-date and professional administrative platform specifically “sharpened for” eCommerce―e.g. you can set up categories, manage your customer base, manage orders, assemble turnover figures, connect your webshop with the accounting and inventory system,
or even with the complete ERP system as well.
The Magento eCommerce CMS Community Edition is free. Thanks
to its modular structure, graphic design and all customer related features can be totally adjusted to the needs of your business.
And that’s where I come in!
I guess you wouldn’t be happy to see your Magento template design, basically available for anyone, appear on your competitors’ websites. That’s why it is highly recommended to make a unique ecommerce design for your business. This is where I can really help you.
What I offer:
Attractive and clear-cut home page design
It includes corporate logo design and colour usage, a clear menu structure, appearances of ad spots and special offers, boxes
of top-list items, a fast search function and the basic user
functions that are needed for a smoothly operating webshop.
Professionally designed product details page
It helps you sell your products more effectively. It’s easy to read through, it contains all the necessary information for your potential customer, and, in addition, it offers other related items for sale. Certainly, the sharing functions of the most popular community sites (Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest) will appear on this page
Easy-to-follow category listing
With the professional Magento filtering search function, your shoppers can narrow down search results from thousands
of products to a few ones that most meet their needs, just
in a matter of seconds. I add a detailed description box to each category, which serves two basic purposes: on the one hand it informs the customer about the advantages of a brand or product range, on the other hand it increases keyword density, which enhances the effectiveness of search engine optimisation
because it means useful content for Google.
Shopping cart subpage with an extra sales function
For achieving better sales results, the Magento shopping cart comprises an up-sell block. Naturally, it is easier to motivate shoppers, who already decided to purchase from you, to choose
a better, faster, or stronger variant of a certain product.
One page or multi-step checkout
One of the major advantages of the Magento webshop platform
is that you can have a tailor-made checkout process―either
a one-page or a multi-page solution. Both can increase sales just
the same, but before making a decision, it’s recommended to test
the shopping behaviour of your target group and make
your choice accordingly (A/B testing).
General corporate subpage
It is a general, static subpage where you can share information
and services of your company, terms and conditions, as well as
any other details about your business that you consider important.
Professional community building blog or news page
You can publish informative news or relevant articles regularly
about your company and its products that can be easily shared
on social community websites. We integrate today’s best web
content delivery framework, WordPress, running in the background
of the blog page in a way that the user doesn’t notice at all that
there’s a completely different content management system
behind the whole blog page.
Landing page design
If you need a landing page where you, for instance, present
a product category to customers or set up a user registration
page in order to build up a database, I would be happy
to help you out.
For direct marketing operations, nowadays, it is a must to make
your newsletters and other electronic direct mails or notification
letters well designed, appealing, and easy to read. I can design
the general newsletter template matching the looks of your
Magento webshop and can adjust the system notification
email template to the corporate design as well.
Optimizing sites for mobile devices
Your business needs to follow the trends so it is crucial for your webshop to be optimized for mobile devices. I can elaborate
the responsive web layouts of your Magento webshop
or corporate home pages and subpages for mobile screens.
Magento provides the amazing feature of being able to serve seemingly different webshops of different domain names
from one single admin platform. This is called “multisite
structure”. Many companies choose this solution to get more
Google search hits for the same product group, or they
set up a number of thematic webshops for different product
categories for SEO reasons. In such cases I can either design
completely different webshop layouts or similar ones
as well if, say, the separate pages need to follow a general
