What We Do

As a Shopify partner and Shopify Expert I have built several private apps to enhance stores that I manage. I also manage several stores, helping to improve the user experience, enhance profitability and reduce what customer service agents have to do to handle orders..

VitaMist retail site

VitaMist retail site

Developed and maintained the VitaMist retail site on shopify.

After managing the previous iteration of the site, which was run on Volusion, I proposed a move to Shopify. The new site is designed to integrate with the VitaMist business model using custom Apps. I manage the site, handling SEO, products and apps. I regularly update and review each aspect of the site, ensuring that it is held to modern techniques, current technologies and best practices with SEO. This process has brought the ecommerce conversion rate from under 1% to nearly 2%, higher than the comparible industry average.

VitaMist is the original manufacturer of VitaMist Spray Vitamins.

App Development

USPS lookup and cleaning Shopify App

USPS lookup and cleaning Shopify App

This app is a private app written to help our customer service agents handle orders in Shopify.

This app will take the shipping and billing address of the selected order and process it through the USPS API to clean up and prepare the address according to USPS requirements for accurate mailling.

Team member referral tracking Shopify App

Team member referral tracking Shopify App

This app is a private app written to act as part of an affiliate style system that tracks our team member retail referrals.

All the existing apps for affiliate marketing assistance in the app store were designed to include payouts, and since VitaMist uses an internal, custom software package to handle commissions, we couldn't use them.

This system allows Team Members to be given a specific snippet to add to the end of URLs on the VitaMist retail site. When a customer comes to the site via a url with this snippet it tags them with a cookie that will mark them as a customer of the referring team member. If the customer subsequently places an order it modifies the customers note and the orders note with a notation to let Customer Service know that it was a referral order.

This is an informational site built on Laravel with OctoberCMS

This redesign was intended to update the site from using simple and hard to manage HTML to a more modern system that will be easier to manage going forward.

In addition, moving to a managed platform makes it easier to ensure that the site, while easier to use for non-technical people, will still be secure and kept up to date.
