Last week we did a review of Shopify Online Store Builder which we had been using on behalf a client for the first time. We had been spending time search engine optimising a tyvek wristbands site. It is pleasing to see that some of the search terms we optimised for are beginning to show up already on the first page of Google. Some of these shows are directly related tot he article we published here last week - one of the values of using this blog software!
Today, we want to return to the eCommerce builder we are more familiar with: Weebly and our own Designer Version we have on www.edityourwebs.com domain. This week much of our time has been spent upgrading www.louknzclothing.co.nz who are our major eCommerce client. In particular in addition to adding new products, we have been working on inventory. It had become apparent that some product variations were out-of-stock. So we are working with our client to make sure that where stock is unavailable or in transit, no one can order and pay for product that cannot be delivered promptly. At this point it is a customer relations issue.
We are also working with this client preparing to issue their first online eNewsletter. We have their client elist on Mail Chimp and are currently reviewing content, including a bonus reward for those on their list. If you visit their site, now might be a good time to join their elist. Whether we will use the Coupon redemption component of the software is undecided but that feature is there if needed. Either way there will be a subscriber benefit out within the week.
While we have talked about this website before in this eNews, you may enjoy visiting to see how it has developed nearly six months on from launch.
The latest edition of our enews has been published and sent to all on our Value Websites eList.

NZ DIA Website Rebuilt by Value Websites
On Our Designer Platform
A digest of what's been happening at Value Websites this winter.
IN THIS ISSUE
Value Websites is able to design web pages that are often known as Squeeze or sometimes Landing pages. Typically these are marketing pages that seek to capture vital information of a prospective customer that can then be followed up with the aim of making a sale. Often a form signup will be invited from a visitor in exchange for something of value like information or a freebie.
To achieve the desired result the page is designed to be free from distractions often provided by links e.g. menu, hyperlink text or image or competing information. The page is designed to be simple with the focus on the centre of the page.
Such a page is provided below. This email news page has one aim - to direct the reader to VW News Posts, and particularly the topmost one at the time of the email's posting in June 2013. Check it out here:
