Shopify makes it easy to manage an online store and in recent years has seen a rapid rise in it’s popularity to become one of the leading platforms in the eCommerce market. At FHOKE we’ve watched this with interest as more stores move away from the traditional WooCommerce and Magento and wondered what all the fuss was about?
When HiConsumption came knocking, asking us to build their sister site Gallantry, we jumped at the chance to work with them and Shopify. HiConsumption is a lifestyle magazine catering to men, covering the latest news in gadgets, architecture, design, fashion, art, vehicles and much more. So building a store to sell some of these gadgets and products was a natural step in the clients growth plans.
As with HiConsumption building the brand for Gallantry was one of the most important steps in the launch. Creating a good brand makes customers more loyal as they trust you. And when they trust you the customer begins to care and will naturally talk and share their experiences with friends. Gallantry understand this and have positioned themselves brilliantly in the market with the products they sell. People are looking for something different when they buy from independent shops and so the brand we created needed to reflect that, appeal to them and excite them to make a purchase. Everything from what the logo represents to the textures and icons to the colours have all been considered to appeal to the customer, even down to the experience on mobile ensuring things can be done in as few clicks as possible.
The proof has been the consistent and rising sales the site has generated in under one week. And long may it continue.
