How eamon A started their web page design journey
Who are you known as?
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We sell imported Irish food brands to ex pats living in Australia & NZ. We are based in Sydney, Australia. Online shoppers come largely from Australia and Ireland (sending loved ones in Australia gifts)
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the web page?
We first launched in 2005 and have went through 4 style changes. The brand is very well known in Irish-Australian circles. We want to mature the look and feel of the site, making it more foodie (bring the foods we sell alive) and imagery of Ireland to enforce that connection... our shoppers have emotional connection to the brands we sell, evoking powerful memories of home.
So whilst we don't want to lose the commercial importance of a shopping cart, we are niche, we boutique in the B2C channel and this quaintness / irishness will set us apart from everyday shopping carts...
Whilst the basic sturcute of the shopping cart may remain the refresh will add to the visitors experience, visually, emotionally... Facebook and social media is a strong platform for us as we build our community here...
Our multi channel business has four distinct revenue streams: (b2B) Large supermarket, Independent retailers and (B2C) Online & Warehouse Shop. We are currently developing a Retail Portal for Independent retailers to log into and access there pricing and place PO. So whilst the online shopping cart has always been the focus of tasteireland.com.au we want to leverage it to represent our entire business.
I maintain we need a home page refresh to depict a the multi channel nature of our business... a new header banner and repositioning of certain features (menu, social media, newsletter sign up etc)
What to avoid
We don't want to hide the fact that most people visiting tasteireland.com.au are there to shop online.... the shopping cart look & feel needs to be manitained to help increase visitor numbers and conversion rates.
