David got in touch as his site www.essentialbathing.co.uk needed updating and re-designing. After our initial meeting I started work on a redesign of his site and started to plan how I was going to help move his email and site from his previous designers servers.
Initially we set up a site showcasing his Walk In Baths and Japanese Deep Soaking Baths with no online purchasing options, the idea being to direct customers to phone in their orders. After the site was live for a while though David decided that he wanted to expand the site and add ecommerce functionality.
Adding a shop to a wordpress site was something that was new to me, so it was a bit of a learning curve, one through that I was happy to undertake as many subsequent sites have made use of the skills I learnt though setting up this site’s e-commerce functionality.
I decided to use Woocommerce as the solution as it easily integrated with the Genesis/Wordpress site that I’d previously set up. After switching all the pages over to product pages, setting up the redirects, the shop was in place and making sales within a week or so.
