My ExperienceThe approach taken for this site was pretty simple, it has one goal and only one goal, to sell fabrics at a customised length. With that in mind it only seemed logical to use WordPress with Woocommerce since both these products combined will give the client a full store. I teamed up with a local hosting provider (Digital Exchange) who’s infrastructure is second to none in terms of performance, easy of management and allows me to have full autonomy over the envrionment.
The client isn’t tech savvy and why should they be, their focus is their business, so I will be doing all their product updates and pretty much handle everything for the website it gives them peace of mind that this has been taken care of by someone who is an expert in this field.
From a technical perspective, I set up the following plugins for WordPress then configured each one.
|Contact Form 7||Just another contact form plugin. Simple but flexible.|
|Regenerate Thumbnails||Allows you to regenerate all thumbnails after changing the thumbnail sizes.|
|Storefront Product Pagination||Add unobtrusive links to next/previous products on your WooCommerce single product pages.|
|WooCommerce||An e-commerce toolkit that helps you sell anything. Beautifully.|
|Woocommerce CSV Import||Import and Export Woocommerce products|
|Woocommerce Products Per Page||Integrate a ‘products per page’ dropdown on your WooCommerce website! Set-up in seconds!|
|WP Gallery Custom Links||Specify custom links for WordPress gallery images (instead of attachment or file only)|
|All In One SEO Pack||Out-of-the-box SEO for your WordPress blog. Features like XML Sitemaps, SEO for custom post types, SEO for blogs or business sites, SEO for e-commerce sites, and much more.|
|All Meta Stats All in One SEO Pack Addon||With the help of this add-on we can see the stats of Keywords for All in One SEO Pack.|
I did all the heavy lifting, this includes hosting, installation, configuration and customisation of their website and any future maintenance I will handle. This is why going for someone like myself makes it easy and simple to not only get online but stay current with trends and designs.
