Magento Surrey - Brandammo E-Commerce
Brandammo

At Brandammo we specialise in the design, development and maintenance of industry leading e-commerce websites that are both commercially-driven and creatively-led.

The E-Commerce Experts

The last decade has seen online shopping evolve from a relatively specialist sales method to a mainstream retail channel on a global scale. But the attraction of e-commerce (the relative ease at which new businesses can enter a market) has also become one of its greatest obstacles, resulting in retailers having to work harder than ever to attract customers online. At Brandammo we are at the forefront of e-commerce design and development, helping out clients stand out from the crowd and achieve real commercial success.

A Multi-Disciplinary Approach

At Brandammo we combine a wide range of skills and experience in the fields of design, marketing and technical development in each and every e-commerce project we undertake. Our unique multi-disciplinary approach means that we not only build websites that look great and are easy to use, but also actively engage with consumers ensuring maximum online sales potential as well as achieving brand recognition, loyalty and goodwill over time.

A Proven Track Record

Having designed, built and maintained a wide range of successful e-commerce websites, we are able to provide demonstrable examples of how we have helped our clients achieve long-term success in an increasingly competitive online marketplace. To find out more about our achievements in e-commerce please either see our case study or get in touch.

E-Commerce Services

Every e-commerce website we produce is designed from the ground up according to comprehensive research and planning and from both the client’s brand and the end-user’s perspective. Whilst ensuring every website we design looks great, it must also be usable, accessible, relevant and effective in engaging with users and driving sales.
All of our e-commerce websites are built on the Magento framework combined with complimentary platforms (such as WordPress) and extensions (such as Pronav) where required. Ensuring the very highest standards of development our aim is to build robust yet flexible e-commerce websites that combine both optimum performance and back-end functionality.
As e-commerce is growing, so too is the use of mobile devices to access the internet and buy online. Though the use of responsive design and development all of our e-commerce websites are built to work on all mobile devices, however we also offer mobile-specific e-commerce development of new and existing websites where required.
Unlike most forms of traditional marketing, online marketing can be closely targeted and is fully measurable. At Brandammo we combine our traditional and new media marketing expertise to develop strategic web and e-mail marketing campaigns designed specifically to drive quality e-commerce traffic and increase conversion rates.
Maintenance is essential to ensure a website stays live and accessible regardless of outside influencing factors (such as browser updates). Our ongoing support and maintenance contracts are designed to offer our clients complete peace of mind that their website is always online and any minor amends and updates are taken care of.

MAGENTO: A PLATFORM FOR GROWTH

Our Preferred Framework

Used by more than 125,000 businesses worldwide, Magento is the world’s fastest growing open source e-commerce framework and is, in our opinion, the most flexible, scalable and effective platform on the market today.

Whilst we are not certified Magento partners (due to the requirement to only sell the most expensive Enterprise Edition to our clients), Magento is unquestionably our platform of choice and our extensive in-house skills and experience allow us to undertake Magento projects of any size and type for our clients.

Brandammo Commerce

E-COMMERCE PROCESS

1. Research

Through collecting, analysing and interpreting a range of relevant information we aim to build a complete picture of our client’s business and the market within which they operate. Combining research findings with the project brief we can ensure that every e-commerce website we create is carefully considered, effective and relevant to our client’s unique aims and objectives.

2. Planning

In addition to strategic planning, consultation (where required) and content collation we plan every aspect of the website via detailed sitemaps and wireframes. Our primary concern, prior to designing the website from a visual perspective, is website functionality and user experience as well as information hierarchy and meaningful and effective communication with the target market.

3. Design

Whether working with a client’s existing brand or creating a new brand as part of our broader range of services, our creative team will create finished visuals of all areas of the site prior to the build. Focusing on ‘proposition’ including key areas such as calls to action and sales promotion our aim is to ensure a professional, visually appealing and ‘on brand’ look and feel throughout.

4. Development

Our designers and front-end developers work closely with our programming team to ensure every website is implemented as per the design and with maximum attention to detail. Building on the core Magento framework we integrate extensions where required and incorporate any relevant front-end technologies, such as JQuery, with the aim of bringing the website to life.

5. Testing & Launch

Following the technical development stage of the project we carry out full front and back-end testing, covering usability, accessibility, browser compatibility, payment processing and all other aspects of the website. Once our testing is complete we provide online access to the client via a staging url to ensure the client is completely happy to sign-off the website before putting it live.

6. Maintenance

Our relationship with a client doesn’t end once their website is live. In addition to hosting, marketing and design services we also offer our clients ongoing maintenance contracts. These agreements are designed to give our clients complete peace of mind in the knowledge that bug fixes, minor amends and updates are taken care of for a fixed monthly cost.
