Custom Solutions We've Built

DYNAMIC CUSTOM PRODUCT & PRICING OPTIONS

EcoEnclose

PROBLEM :

EcoEnclose provides its customers with Earth-friendly and highly-customizable boxes and packaging solutions for all uses. EcoEnclose needed a way to offer their clients multiple customization options, including logo branding, along with a pricing model to match. EcoEnclose wanted our web developers to design a customization feature so that customers could order boxes with specific dimensions and personal branding, according to their needs. With such a customization option, they could automate the process and save on time manufacturing such items.

SOLUTION:

Our objective was two-fold: we wanted to develop this customization feature for the site, which would enhance the user experience, and migrate EcoEnclose from Volusion to BigCommerce. We believe that if you enhance the experience for your customers, then they are more likely to stay on the site and make a purchase. In the end, Optimum7 Bigcommerce web development partners created a dynamic, 5-step customization process for customers to create their own personalized, branded packaging all on one product page.
5/5
I approached Optimum7 with a mammoth wishlist of features we hoped to integrate into our site. Our goals in sum: To create accurately priced and more user-friendly ordering and automate art proofing of custom products. I fully anticipated the dismissal of our lofty objectives. Shockingly, I received an immediate (and enthusiastic!) reply. They persevered and delivered on nearly everything we had only dreamed would be possible.

ADVANCED SEARCH & FILTER

ASMC Industrial

PROBLEM

ASMC Industrial provides wholesalers with premium selections of industrial bolts and nut fasteners. Their niche clientele had to go through the painstaking process of clicking through hundreds of product pages to find the right nut or bolt for their specific needs.

SOLUTION

With careful planning and strategy, Optimum7 created advanced search and filter functionality for every product category. This functionality makes it easier for customers to search for the specific products they are interested in.
5/5
Optimum 7 creates a faceted search to my specs. This replaced a hosted search from Searchspring, which was costing us $500 per month. Even though it wasn’t cheap, we will get ROI relatively quickly, not having to pay that enormous rent.

PRODUCT SMART MATCH

Superior Lighting

PROBLEM

Superior Lighting is a wholesale and retail supplier of discount light bulbs. With over 12,000 similar yet highly specific products, this client needed a custom functionality to group multiple products to make the navigation easier for their clients.

SOLUTION

The team of highly skilled developers at Optimum7 displayed multiple Superior Lighting products on the same landing page. This allowed the client to find similar products with variations without leaving the original product page, improving user-experience and conversions across the board.

ECOMMERCE MIGRATION

Tees2UrDoor

PROBLEM

After being on Volusion for years, Tees2urdoor had outgrown Volusion and needed a more scalable eCommerce platform so we suggested migration. We needed to seamlessly migrate all product data, customer data, order data by implementing 301 redirects. The migration took about 3 months to execute and did not disrupt their ongoing operations.

SOLUTION

With our core objectives being to increase Tees2urdoor.com’s organic visibility and conversions, we migrated Tees2urdoor from Volusion to BigCommerce (a much more SEO friendly and scalable eCommerce platform), implemented an ongoing SEO and content marketing strategy, and developed custom eCommerce functionality to optimize for conversions.

CONVERSION OPTIMIZATION

Furnace Part Source

PROBLEM

When Furnace Part Source came to us, they knew their site was outdated with a menu and calls-to-actions that needed to be optimized. Drop shipping his products was very important so he knew updating his website would take a lot of development work in order to sync his inventory and the brands he sells on his eCommerce site.

SOLUTION

An easy but labor intensive solution was to migrate the site to BigCommerce so that he would never have to worry about his site keeping up with increased business and brands. We also did a complete template redesign for him on BigCommerce. Together with writing SEO content for his category and product pages, thus far we’ve seen Furnace Part Source earning 50% more converting organic traffic year-over-year.

ECOMMERCE SEO & CONTENT MARKETING

Orange Coast Pneumatics

PROBLEM

Orange Coast Pneumatics came to Optimum7 in December 2018, both to increase their website’s visibility and conversions and to improve both technical and internet marketing strategies. Working on several projects such as marketing, a migration from 3D cart to BigCommerce for scalability, custom functionality, and design, together since then, we’ve been remarkably enhancing Orange Coast Pneumatics, Inc.’s conversion rates and revenues.

SOLUTION

We had several objectives with Orange Coast Pneumatics, Inc.: the first was to increase their websites’ conversion rates, SEO performance, and their online visibility. That would help to make them an authoritative and trustworthy brand online. The second was to reach out to their target market and inevitably raise their revenues. The third was to ensure more satisfying user experience and give the ability to select appropriate options and place orders with ease. That would help to engage user’s attention on their websites and turn visitors into customers.

BigCommerce Template Customization

RCsuperstore.com

PROBLEM

RC Superstore came to us in 2018 and initially came to us to design a template customized project for a new BigCommerce store. Once they noticed a change in conversions, revenue, and traffic, they also wanted to improve their metrics.

They also wanted an advanced search filter. With such a filter, the products would display in real-time and we could prioritize them. Then we could put category pages on search results in a drop-down format.

SOLUTION

Our goal was to increase RC Superstore’s conversion rates, SEO and revenue. That would mean increasing their brand authority. The company had partnered with the RC manufacturer Traxxas to sell their wares at a competitive price, so leveraged that partnership to ensure that RC Superstore became an authority on the brand. That meant writing about their products with content relevant to potential consumers.

Optimum7 set up a BigCommerce template to support the custom functionality and integration while implementing the client’s branding. Our web designer also set up BigCommerce store configurations: payments, shipping, store options, related products, category views, product display settings, emails, and more.
