Over lockdown we saw the closure of an already struggling high street. With sadly many businesses not making it through when restrictions had eased – a shift towards a digital market has been a must, as more than ever, shopping habits are taking place online.
We were delighted to work on a small project with the Dorset based business Mine to give their high-street boutique an online presence.
The independent lifestyle boutique specialising in fashion, jewellery, beauty and more is based in the lovely town of Shaftesbury. Having to shut-shop for a couple of months, their customers were struggling to get their ‘Mine’ fix which can include anything from cashmere jumpers to Bramley hand cream. It’s the perfect and much-missed gift shop for those Zoom celebrated birthdays!
Recognising the need to go digital, Mine wanted a user-friendly website to showcase their stunning collections. They previously had a portfolio site, but this didn’t include a shop for their customers to browse and buy as and when they wish, nor did it connect with the Instagram Shop feature – an absolute must in 2020!
So the result, a simple yet stylish Shopify site. Easy to use for both Mine’s employees and the customer, shoppers near and far can now browse their collections and receive a delightful parcel of goodies with a click of a button.
Due to Shopify’s accessible nature, companies no longer need to have an extensive technical knowledge in order to make sure everything ticks. The activities of uploading, tracking and processing items, are made super simple. Compared to other platforms, it also works collaboratively with social media, so that you can easy link and take advantage of the Facebook and Instagram Shops. Which in itself, is a quick, efficient and hassle-free way to shop for customers and companies alike.
Always trying to do our bit for our local highstreets and the many fabulous stores in the county, we were thrilled Mine came to us to help enhance their online presence. Whether you’re treating yourself or buying a gift for a friend, we’re sure you’ll be tempted by Mine’s beautiful product range. Visit their new website here: https://mine-boutique.co.uk/
