Poppy Belle Florals came to us with a website up and running already, so they opted for one of our free website reviews to get some feedback. After our review, they knew it was time to expand their website and move things over to a stronger e-commerce platform built with Shopify.
This brand wanted to sell more products and begin to grow bigger and faster; they wanted to get the brand out into the world and find their perfect client.
Poppy Belle Florals’ main challenge was to continue to serve both business and corporate customers with their floral designs, whilst also building up there work with the general public.
This change for their business needed to increase sales, allow a better understanding of their clientele and put this brand on the map.
So, it wasn’t just developing a Shopify store; it was getting this brand’s message across and speaking to their perfect customer.
When working with Poppy Belle Florals, we took the time to fully understand the brand and what set it apart from its competitors. Once we knew what the brand was trying to achieve and the types of clients it was trying to attract, it was easy to design their Shopify store.
At Breeze Development, we are a Shopify partner, so we can select the best plans for each client. After spending time getting to know Poppy Belle Florals, it was simple for us to share our insights and recommend the perfect plan.
Once that was decided, we set this business up with a customised design that spoke directly to the target audience and brought this brand to life online. We also utilised Shopify’s integrations with social media platforms to expose this brand and give them a competitive advantage.
