Our development and partner team have carefully chosen these technology partners based on their effectiveness and value to the store owner. Every store build is designed to meet the business owner’s requirements for superior customer experience, technical reliability, and conversion optimization. Our customer-first focus means your store technology plan will contain the best of breed choices that meet your needs.
14 years of ecommerce experience means that our team has worked with many of the best known shopping carts and has analyzed many more. We have chosen to partner with BigCommerce because its feature set, reliability, flexibility and value represent the best of breed in hosted shopping carts. An API-first architecture allows us to create a customized feature set that rivals open-source solutions at a far lower cost of ownership. In layman’s terms, we can meet or exceed your technical needs, get your store built in far less time, and save you a lot of money. Savings can amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars per year for larger stores. Want proof? Ask us why we are such huge fans of BigCommerce.

We recommend Remarkety for those stores who want to add more personalized email campaigns and more finely detailed automation. Remarkety can also replace the native transactional emails and abandoned cart emails so you can maximize the sales potentials of these emails.
We <3 Mailchimp because it’s super easy to use and includes plenty of automation features that let smaller businesses run email campaigns like the big boys do. Mailchimp offers the best value out there for email marketing software which is why it is also one of our core recommendations for the stores we build.
Are you ready to bump up into a full-featured product review program? When you are, we’ll recommend Stamped.io. Stamped makes it very easy for your customers to submit product reviews, even when they include photos! This can have a great impact on your conversion rates. The software also includes a robust set of features including feeding your review stars out to Google search and shopping, a shoppable Instagram feed, product Q&A sections, and a Net Promotor score for your brand. They offer features usually only found on more expensive review products but do so at a very reasonable price. They even have a “free” plan so smaller stores can get started.
Smile.io is our recommendation for stores seeking to add a loyalty rewards or referral program to grow their customer base and sales. It’s easy to use and, like all our favorites, kind on the wallet. Yes, there’s a free plan for beginners.
There are a number of great chat software programs on the market. We like Olark because it’s simple. It’s simple to use and simple to install. They also have a free plan for those just starting out. This is why Olark is also a core recommendation for our clients.
We have partnered with Siteground’s hosting services because they offer consistently reliable hosting and excellent customer service. Siteground offers hosting packages at competitive prices that work even for small businesses. Hosting packages start as low as $3.95 mo!
What’s in a name? Could be everything if it’s the domain name for your business. We prefer Namecheap for domain registrations because they live up to their name with lower prices and they provide excellent service without the hard upsell for features you don’t really need.
