Project Spotlight - Direct Blinds 
Direct Blinds have been a thoroughly enjoyable client to work alongside, from the initial successful build and deployment of the website to now where we work closely with the team to continuously improve the website in all areas, with a lot of hard work thrown into the middle.

Direct Blinds are an online-only retailer and as such their primary focus for the website is on increasing sales and conversion rates. They are always open to new ideas and implmentations which could improve their key metrics, some examples of key improvements include:
  • closely monitored hosting requirements and upgrades where necessary 
  • improved variant testing on site to report on key influencers to conversion rate
  • full site rebrand and UX/UI redesign to improve conversion with a key focus on mobile
The website is packed full of features, and includes too many integrations to count, but some of the most well known third party integrations include:
  • Microsoft Dynamics CRM
  • Braintree / Paypal and AmazonPay payment integrations
  • Trustpilot / Google Shopping Reviews
