Marketing Simplified

We believe a successful e-commerce transaction is the ultimate expression of ‘like.’ Our marketing programs are optimized to enhance and complement each individual e-commerce site and build long-term customer relationships. We focus on four key areas to drive success. Simple!

Interest & Desire

To drive interest in key products and create desire, we focus on building brand trust through content strategy and user experience. We develop consumer personas and map their unique journeys to ensure we capture and cultivate their interest. Starting with content strategy, we develop a site with a focus on information architecture, user experience, and user interface, with the goal of optimizing category, catalog, and product pages. To maximize desire, we focus on merchandising, pricing, and promotions to create compelling product offers.


Customer acquisition starts with awareness. We partner with our clients to craft customized strategies to reach target consumers and drive brand awareness. Using a combination of search engine optimization, marketing newsletters, the social ecosystem, blogs, and influencers and ambassadors, complemented with paid strategies as needed, we simultaneously optimize home page and landing page content to ensure consumers find relevant information to further drive interest and inspire content exploration.


Our team can help build long-term relationships with key consumers through optimized transactional emails and lifecycle marketing programs. By focusing on retention and cohort performance, we maximize life-time value and repeat purchase.


Conversion is the goal. We maximize conversion rate by building a strong funnel and streamlining the checkout process. We focus on simplifying the user experience and removing roadblocks to checkout. We also optimize abandoned cart programs to ensure we capture consumers’ desires and convert them to action.
