New Website Launch: Calvin L. Hinz Architects


Calvin L Hinz Architects is a firm which provides architectural services nation-wide to a vast array of industries. Priding themselves on professionalism, beautiful design and thorough work, its previous website did not accurately represent those trademarks, and the team decided to redesign with JM’s Omaha web design team.

CLH’s new website has a most impressive portfolio, featuring their completed projects. This portfolio, and the entire site, utilizes a WordPress content management system. This CMS provides CLH with ease in updating the website. This pre-built responsive WordPress theme was also updated with several custom layouts – including the team, portfolio and home pages – to help showcase their talent and projects more effectively.

This new website is functional and beautiful, and we’re thankful that CLH trusted our Omaha web design team to redesign and rebrand them for a more professional and clean look.

Website Holiday Tip, Maximize Ecommerce Website Revenue with Simple Checkout Updates

checkout-newsletter

Maximizing revenue with an optimal checkout process during the winter season is critical for your holiday sales. Shopping cart abandonment occurs when checkout is confusing, when users are forced to create an account and there are payment security concerns.

When shopping cart abandonment does occur, there is a WooCommerce plugin that can help recover 30% of revenue lost by abandoned carts. By sending email reminders to customers and guests, the plugin helps go for the close. However – why even get to cart abandonment? Let’s focus on some key ways you can improve your ecommerce website’s payment process and convert prospects into customers quickly and effectively.

Build trust with your customers for an effective online sale. Make sure your website makes clear your shipping and return policies – instead of leaving customers guessing. In the event that customers have questions, easy access to customer service is vital. Live Chat is an affordable and simple way to make sure customers can have their questions answered quickly so you don’t lose the sale.

Checkout obstacles are also detrimental to closing your online sales. We know you want to collect customer data. It’s helpful for marketing, support and research… but forcing customers to create accounts will cause lost sales this holiday season. Offer a guest checkout option to ensure completed sales.

Investing in mobile-friendly, responsive website technology is also going to help close online sales. If customers need to zoom in/enlarge the browser to click on the appropriate product, can’t read the text, cannot easily enter info in checkout fields or are waiting for pages to load… you’ve likely lost that sale. Having a mobile-friendly website is no longer optional – it’s a must-have, make-or-break, you-better-get-it-now decision for your business.

Lastly, offering more payment options may help close your online sales. WooCommerce offers a deposit extension which allows for monthly payment options, and PayPal offers a credit solution to merchants that comes at no risk to merchants. And during the holidays, everyone knows that monetary flexibility can be critical to closing a sale.

Having trouble closing online sales? Give us a call at 402.292.7500 ext. 102 to find out how we can optimize your website’s checkout process.

Website Holiday Tips – Additional Plugin Functionality for Increased Sales

ecommerce holiday tip

Wanting to enhance your ecommerce website for the holiday season? With the ease and flexibility of WooCommerce, our Omaha web design and development team can assist in plugin upgrades and additional extensions that can increase sales and enhance user experience at an affordable cost.

WooCommerce is widely used and revered for providing a customizable ecommerce platform that’s easy to update, simple to use and affordable to improve. WooCommerce has hundreds of free and paid extensions to extend a website’s functionality. From complex SEO plugins, simple widgets, and everything in between – if you can think of it, there’s probably a plugin for it.

Out of the box, WooCommerce gives online businesses the ability to sell multiple types of products, including physical goods, items with variations and digital products. But having our Omaha web development team add in extensions, your online store can start selling memberships and subscriptions, export customers for extended marketing and add more sophisticated product search and sorting. Additionally, as the holidays approach, it may be beneficial to look into more customizable shipping – to stay competitive with larger retailers – as well as dynamic pricing for offering bulk discounts, category discounts and role based discounts.

Making updates to your ecommerce website before the holiday rush begins will ensure your success and profitability during the largest online retail time of year. To learn more about extensions and upgrades for the holiday season, call 402.292.7500 ext. 102.
