E-commerce is more than just selling online: it’s a key element in the customer journey. Some customers start their journey online and finish the purchasing process in your garden centre. Other customers might visit your garden centre to browse only to purchase items online. So whether you want to drive footfall or boost online sales: having a webshop will help you cater to a larger customer base.
At Garden Connect, we believe a webshop should be an integral part of your garden centre rather than a stand-alone point of sale. It’s a key element of a true omnichannel strategy. We take the time to learn your ambitions and business so we can offer you a solution which blends well into your business, brand and target audience.
At Garden Connect, we know your time is precious. That’s why we have integrations with over 35 EPoS systems. Our EPoS integrations make sure your webshop is always up to date on:
- Prices & offers
- Product data
- Order information
- Customer data
These integrations ensure products, prices and customer data are accurate at all channels. The Garden Connect CMS is an open platform allowing you to integrate with any third party you want to. On top of that, we have integrations with all premier payment providers.
The main challenge for garden retailers who are setting up a webshop is to get all relevant product information online. The team of content marketers at Garden Connect can help you to optimise your product listings:
- As EFSA member, we have excellent contacts with many premier suppliers to the industry to request and process your product info
- We can help you to create Google-friendly content, bespoke for your garden centre, to boost your Google-rankings
- Themed landing pages will help you to inspire customers to buy online or visit your garden centre.
We ensure the content matches your ambitions. If you intend to have an online showroom, we make certain local customers find you. If you want to sell online, we focus on online users looking for a place to buy. You can download our eBook with more information on how to create content for your webshop.
At Garden Connect, we believe transparency is the starting point of a long-term relationship. That’s why we always work with fixed quotes. During an onboarding meeting, one of our experienced account managers will discuss your challenges, goals, and ambitions. Based on that, we can provide you with a proposal covering all your needs.
Our quotes always include webshop hosting, updates, and support. You’ll never get an unexpected invoice from us.
