I have just hired SmartTech Pty Ltd to redevelop our website, it is a substantial investment we are making and will be an ongoing project to make stickerart.com.au into the premier sticker website in Australia over the next 2 – 3 years.
The initial project is to completely rebuild the website and the way it works, at SmartTech’s recommendation we will use Woocommerce which is shopping cart software that is open source and is integrated into WordPress (This blog you are reading is WordPress). We will customise to suit the way we sell stickers and our other products, it will work seamlessly across both Desktop and Mobile platforms and the aim is to make the user experience as friendly as possible. It will have a completely new design and feel over the existing site and include features such as designing and purchasing stickers online. Initially you will be able to order custom lettering stickers online and this tool will evolve over time to an online design tool to customise pictures as well, this tool will eventually become an important part of the website and will allow our customers to create quality stickers and signs that express themselves and their businesses.
We live in a diverse community with diverse personalities and my aim is to have a sticker website that anyone feels comfortable using and purchasing from – from a 10-year-old kid to a 90-year-old grandmother. We have much work to do to bring this website to the internet and I am completely confident that SmartTech will deliver what they have promised on time – this website has been hosted with them for the past 2 years and their professionalism and customer service is truly awesome. Their web hosting services are completely affordable and excellently maintained, since moving to SmartTech’s servers I have definitely noticed an increase in traffic from Google’s websites to this website because of the speed of their servers, Google does consider the speed in which a server will deliver a website and ranks it accordingly.
Our new website will allow us to easily expand our sticker range and we will also offer more signage products. The way we handle custom enquiries and orders will change and be streamlined to save both our customers and us time and get orders out sooner. We will combine all our social media feeds to one page on the website to allow potential customers to see more of the day-to-day workings and products we produce, we believe we are a good business and do the right thing by our customers and we’ll set out to prove this.
