Our business is growing every day. All of Volusion’s tools have really increased and helped exceed our holiday traffic expectations.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) December 15, 2009
•Volusion, a leading provider of ecommerce software and services for online merchants, today announced its award-winning software platform powers Dreamaker Gifts, the new gourmet gift basket retailer.
•Working with Volusion, the online retailer was able to launch a fully functional ecommerce site in less than one month without relying on expensive design firms or internal technical staff.
•Using Volusion’s built-in SEO, homepage promotions, wish list and coupon tools, Dreamaker Gifts exceeded revenue expectations for their first holiday buying season.
Opening a Store Quickly and Easily
•In the past, Dreamaker leased its domain name http://www.dreamakergifts.com to a gift basket company, but the arrangement was not generating enough revenue. With the goal of becoming the most talked-about gift basket company on the web, Dreamaker decided to launch their own ecommerce site in time for the 2009 holiday buying season.
•As a start-up, Dreamaker was not able to spend a lot of money on web designers or hire an in-house site technician. The company needed a simple, all-inclusive solution with a shopping cart and backend infrastructure. The site would need to be easily managed in-house by non-technical employees.
•Dreamaker chose to work with Volusion because they could create a fully customized site in a short amount of time. Volusion’s built-in SEO tools were also a key selling point.
•Upon launching, the website was highly ranked in most search engines, appearing on the first and second pages of search results.
Products that Sell Themselves
Volusion also offers Dreamaker the following built-in tools that make marketing their business simple. Most importantly, Dreamaker is able to offer shoppers convenience and value during the all-important holiday season.
•Vzoom: With Volusion’s Vzoom feature, Dreamaker customers have the ability to hover over images to get a detailed look at gift baskets before they buy.
•Coupon Creation: Dreamaker easily creates discount promotions through Volusion’s coupon creation tool. The site’s holiday coupons are expected to continually drive sales well into 2010.
•Top Sellers List: One of three homepage promotion tools, Volusion’s built-in Top Sellers list keeps the homepage fresh by automatically rotating the best selling gifts.
•AddThis: With Volusion’s AddThis integration, customers can share Dreamaker’s products across more than a hundred sites.
•Wish Lists: Customers have the option to conveniently browse and add products to their wish lists, and then return to purchase them at a later date.
•Built-in SEO: With the assistance of Volusion’s SEO tools, Dreamaker was able to establish an immediate presence on Google, Bing and Yahoo.
•Premium Live Chat: Quick and easy pop-up notification help to answer customer questions in real-time.
•“Our favorite part of Volusion is their customer service,” said Jordan Greve, Marketing Representative at Dreamaker Gifts. “They have so many ways to be reached and they will literally stay on the phone with you until your problem is fully resolved. I credit their quick, friendly and reliable customer service for helping us launch within one month.”
•“Our business is growing every day. All of Volusion’s tools have really increased and helped exceed our holiday traffic expectations,” said Greve.
