You always remember your first.
That first time a “Paid” notification popped into your inbox. That first online sale, and the knowledge that this webshop will keep on selling.
It’s an amazing feeling!
But there’s a lot that goes into getting to that place, and there’s a lot to do once you’re there. You know there’s key areas of the business that need your attention, and you need help to push profitability, improve automation, and reduce customer service costs.
We’ve helped businesses go from zero to first, and from $100,000 to $1,000,000+ in annual revenue. We bring the strategic and technical help you need to take the next step.
Build with the best
Your e-commerce platform is the foundation that you’ll build on for years to come, and that’s why we specialise in WordPress and WooCommerce as an e-commerce platform.
Flexibility and Freedom
WooCommerce is the world’s most widely-used sales platform because there is no lock-in and there’s ultimate flexibility.
With WooCommerce you can sell physical and digital products. Memberships, subscriptions and payment plans. Downloads, goods, services, online learning experiences, conference tickets, club fees… everything you can sell, you can sell with WooCommerce.
Since you host and own the platform yourself, there’s no chance a change of pricing model or terms of service might damage or shut down your business — unlike on hosted platforms like Shopify or Wix.
A skilled developer can change every single line of code, and with a combination of off-the-shelf and custom development, you can make an e-commerce experience that’s truly your own.
Why customers choose Performance Foundry for WooCommerce Development
Bryce runs an established boutique store that sells specialist goods worldwide. He was struggling with his WooCommerce performance. He had good hosting, but still didn’t see the speed results he was after. The real goal was more sales… We decided to work on speed, and add on some SEO analysis work. After six months, visits have gone up over 300% and sales up 250%.
Bryce saw issues with speed. And conversions. And search. And automation. And we’re working on it, one step at a time.
It’s our mission to help you grow and succeed. We understand that businesses need to solve different problems depending on where they’re at in their business cycle. It’s our job to help pinpoint and solve the current pain point, then hit the next, and the next.
Can we help solve pain points for you? Book an exploratory call, and we’ll find out.
Common WooCommerce Development Requests
We do lots of e-commerce development work for WordPress, and much of it is custom.
Our most successful projects begin with analysis of current user data, and moves into some hypothesis and tests to improve site performance.
Fix WooCommerce Site Speed
There are so many different ways to measure site speed, but only a few are key to your site visitors and search bots.
Generally, we’d escalate through these steps:
- At first, band-aid site speed problems by removing excess code, fixing errors, and performing on-page and on-server optimisations
- Review, reduce, replace and re-code around bottlenecks using application performance monitoring tools
- Shift your site from a Frankenstein’s monster of competing plugins to a well-oiled machine
- Consider a custom theme rebuild, or moving from a standard WordPress theme to a headless WooCommerce implementation, where WooCommerce runs the back-end, and a custom application runs the front end
Specialist AWS WooCommerce Hosting
We don’t always need to shift hosting providers to get results, but Performance Foundry has specialised Managed WordPress Hosting plans for e-commerce stores – both budget and enterprise options available.
Improve WooCommerce sales (CRO) or search visibility (SEO)
Want more sales? Want more traffic?
Both Conversion Rate Optimisation and Search Engine Optimisation really starts with understanding your current traffic data, your competitors advantages, and your customer wants… and building from there.
Often important checkout data is missing from analytics, like add-to-cart actions or even completed checkout data. Where we spot those discrepancies, we add data points to improve the accuracy of the model.
You get a complete report that drives decisions, actions and development priorities. Most clients choose to have this updated every month to deliver ongoing insight to executives and their marketing or PR agencies.
We can work alongside you to deliver the technical needs, and keep pushing results upwards and to the right.
Create a new WooCommerce store/webshop
Start from a dream, add WooCommerce to an existing WordPress site, or re-platform to WooCommerce when Shopify, Wix or another solution stop being enough.
In the last 12 months, our clients have paid from $10,000 to $75,000 for complete e-commerce builds. If that’s within your scope, let’s get a project going. (Yes, we have payment plans available.)
Add custom funnels or WooCommerce checkout hacks
Cross-sells, upsells, downsells, offer bumps… One step checkouts to multi-page wonders… We’ve seen them all!
Luckily WooCommerce has some options and add-ons that can help power almost any checkout flow, and Performance Foundry can further customise to meet your needs.
Integrate WooCommerce with CRM, ERM, or accounting software
We have integrated WooCommerce with Salesforce to InfusionSoft, Mailchimp to Zoho, Xero to MYOB and almost every flavor of customer relationship manager or enterprise resource management tool there is.
There are several off-the-shelf tools we can set up with you, and we have significant expertise in adding functionality to these, or creating custom integrations from scratch.
Integrate WooCommerce with email automation or marketing software
There are specialist WooCommerce email marketing solutions, like Metorik and Jilt, as well as general email marketing and automation solutions that integrate, such as Klavio, Drip and Mailchimp.
We can integrate with your current lists, or analyse and recommend a solution that meets your automation needs and budget.
