“If you build it, they will come.” In the case of an eCommerce website that’s not exactly true? Or is it?
I know that some of you are afraid of this answer but – it all depends. If your store is slow (loading times), difficult to navigate, or if it makes you think how to make the next (or any) step – I have bad news for you.
But, if your eCommerce website follows all of the UX (user experience) or UI (user interface) best practices, as well as development best practices – I have good news for you.
Now, the question is – is it really that difficult to choose the right eCommerce agency?
To help you answer that question we have collected some of the most important points to discuss and to check with the potential agency for your future eCommerce business.
June 2020 brings us many changes since Magento 1 support is coming to an end. Whether you’re considering building a new store on Magento 2, or you have already started the transition, there are (more than) a few things to keep in mind to ensure your traffic and (more importantly) revenue doesn’t get lost during the migration.
Migration to Magento 2 is stressful for every store owner, but the change is inevitable. We have already prepared a list of the most common SEO mistakes during the migration, but we wanted to do more, so we decided to create this SEO checklist to make your transition as smooth as possible.
What happens when you check your conversion action tab and see new ones that you haven’t set up yourself? You may think at first that someone has unauthorized access to your campaigns, but then, you see that source for these conversions is “Google hosted”.
You have just discovered Local Actions Conversions in your Google Ads account. Google system has set up these automated conversions. Let’s dig in and learn a little more about them, shall we?
Let’s talk about product images as the most important content in your eCommerce website, or is it?
Do not underestimate the importance of product photography because this is one of the most powerful tools in selling of your goods. Humans are visual beings, we process information based on what we see. Studies show that people remember 80% of what they see and 20% of what they read.
According to a research from ViSenze, 62% of generation Z and Millennial consumers want visual search capabilities. Pinterest CEO Ben Silbermann says: “The future of search will be about pictures rather than keywords”. Instead of searching for words, users can drag or snap a photo of clothes, furniture or home decor, etc, without having to describe what they are looking for in a search box with Google Lens.
This is going to be a strange blog post. Why? Because there are two kinds of people. Firsts are those adding negative keywords in their Google Ads campaigns (in mostly) exact match. The second group of people are the ones that are adding negative keywords using more logical, one could say even strategic, way.
Which one are you?
Are your optimizing for conversions? How do you measure the impact of UX design and incremental changes on an eCommerce website? What are the key metrics (KPIs) you should track to effectively monitor your website’s performance?
Is there a one-size-fits-all type of a report that can give you good enough clues on just how successful are all the efforts you (or an agency you are working with) are putting in? To see the results your optimization efforts brought in?

Shop4runners and Inchoo go way back together. In 2014, we started the support of the existing site for these running experts. In 2015, the support leveled up to the point where we modified the existing theme to make it more responsive alongside cleaning the project from numerous core rewrites and bad practices. Their Magento 1.6.2. store was stable, but couldn’t stay that way for too long. After years of operations without performing a major upgrade, the technical debt became too high. It needed a boost!
