We were contacted by Chloe's Nook right around the New Year about their website. We had a great introductory meeting with the Chloe's Nook team, evaluated the current website, and evaluated the company as well as their product.
Chloe's Nook manufactures custom made dog gates. As a new start up company, they had been exhibiting in the local New Jersey / New York metro area at various pet expo's, doggie in the park gatherings, and other pet related events.
Their original website was a lovely WordPress website with a Woo Commerce e-commerce back end. However, since Woo Commerce is essentially just another WordPress plugin dependent on yet more plugins to comfortably function, it wasn't giving this growing company the functionality and flexibility they needed to grow to the next level.
When we came on board, the team was going to be attending the Edison Pet Expo within a few weeks. Given that they were not using a true e-commerce system, we made sure we were available essentially 24/7 as problems with the shopping cart did arise. We made it comfortable for them to get past the issues and integrate with their new Pet Expo clients.
Upon return, we went straight towards the goal of setting up a custom Shopify solution for Chloe's Nook before the next Pet Expo in Chantilly Virginia. Again we made ourselves available basically 24/7 to address everything that came up, so that when the team went to the show, everything worked smoothly.
We are now working on the SEO, marketing and social media marketing for Chloe's Nook - this is the next phase of operations so that they can competitively grow this business and take it to the next level.
