After tapping 3dcart’s in-house design team for the site’s most recent update, CSS enjoyed a 10 percent year-over-year increase in March sales.
Tamarac, FL and Leominster, MA (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
A few years ago, Mike Josephs moved his online store Custom Sports Sleeves (CSS) to 3dcart. He uses 3dcart for more than just the software; after tapping the company’s in-house design team for the site’s most recent update, CSS enjoyed a 10 percent year-over-year increase in March sales.
“We’ve had more than one great experience with the 3dcart design team,” Mike explains. “Our most recent redesign, however, has helped propel us to a record-high month in March.”
While CSS focused its first two redesigns with 3dcart on aesthetics, the most recent focused primarily on the store’s user-friendliness. The overhaul would target four key areas of improvement.
- Enhanced Category Navigation: To free up space on each page, 3dcart’s design team moved the categories from the left-hand side to a new top navigation. The move simplified navigation and gave CSS more control of page content.
- Drop-Down Menus: Prior to the redesign, customers had to click on a category to view the subcategory listings on a separate page. Now, with new dropdown menus implemented, CSS customers can view subcategories directly on the page to find what they need quickly.
- New Product Listings Page Layout: A new page layout allowed CSS to cut-down and break-up the description content into tabs. For instance, a general description and sizing information can reside on the same page under different tabs, without forcing the shopper to reload the page.
- Sleeker Branding Elements & Design: In addition to user-friendly updates, 3dcart’s design team helped integrate sleeker branding elements into the site to enhance the ‘athletic’ feel the brand communicates.
