Making Ecommerce Sites Work Better With Woocommerce

Making Ecommerce Sites Work Better With Woocommerce

Make your ecommerce site run better with woocommerceThis past August we were contacted by the Newton Massachusetts business, Curly Girl Designs. They were having some challenges with their current WordPress ecommerce solution powered by WP-Ecommerce and they were fed up with the poor performance and usability it was providing. It was time to migrate.

Curly Girl Design Woocommerce ProjectCurly Girl Designs was looking for an expert to help migrate their WPEC ecommerce system to a Woocommerce package and make this transition simple for their customers and painless for their office staff who had been struggling with WPEC. Curly Girl understood that Woocommerce would change some of the structural elements of the theme (which was Woocommerce compatible). Our job was to make Woocommerce to look as close to what Curly Girl Design already had as possible. In addition to this, we  had to deal with checkout speed problems and alerts. Site speed was a critical need that had to be addressed.

Launched and the returns have been excellent

Curly Girly Woocommerce Report DataThe new converted site has been live for two months and the feedback and numbers compared to last year at this time have been very encouraging:

  • 20% Increase in overall visits
  • 30% Increase in unique visitors
  • 45% Increase in page views
  • 20% Increase in pages per visit
  • 25% Increase in average time per visit
  • 16% Decrease in bounce rate
  • 7% Increase in new visits
  • $14,000+ of tracked sales in first 30 days with the new platform

All the user access stats have increased in a positive manner. The average order has increased by 8% and the site speed delivery has been drastically improved without the addition (yet) of site caching or CDN tools. This has resulted in a significantly reduced influx of customer service calls and a reduction in abandoned carts due to the simpler and streamlined checkout process.

  1. Wow, these are results are spectacular. (Was the $14k+ incremental?) I am not familiar with Woocommerce but I want to get me some. Hee hee.

    BTW, love the new First Tracks site design. It’s hot!

    1. Hi Steve. Thanks for the shout out on the blog post. The 14K was incremental in the sense that it was taken as a snap shot from the time we started tracking the orders in Google to when I wrote this blog post. Believe it or not this client wasn’t setup with their previous WordPress ecommerce platform to track this data in Google Analytics until we got ahold of it. Now we can see all the trending sales data in conjunction with the visitor data which is going to be invaluable going forward to help create a more and more effective sales funnel for Curly Girl Designs. Oh and thanks for the shout out on the new site design too, it was a LONG hard journey getting this all turned over in time for my WordCamp Boston presentation last weekend but I think it was well worth it! :)
