Clients’ Overview

Miche.IT - Magento 2 migration and Development

Client’s Challenges = Our Tasks

Initially, our team had one primary task – eCommerce website migration to Magento 2 from another content management system.  Miche wanted to reach more customers, create a loyal base, and grow your sales by leaps and bounds. Building the best online sports store is challenging, especially if you opt to do it alone. However, with our business and tech consulting skills, our experts can help solve all of your tech challenges for both new online and offline businesses.  Moreover, Nike and Helly Hansen currently use Magento for their online sports store. 

Challenge #1. Magento 2 Migration

Helly Hensen is now a spectacular success story, with over 50 distinct sites available in six languages. They also provide a variety of payment and delivery options to satisfy the diverse demands of their clients. 

With Magento 2, they have established a vibrant and bright brand personality through carefully prepared content and the best storytelling, encompassing their various stores such as B2B and footwear. 

Even though the sites might differ in the items they sell, each one is remarkably unified in the overall look and feel, which weaves their brand together seamlessly. The aim is always to produce a one-of-a-kind, entertaining, and out-of-the-box experience. They even embrace third-party integrations. 

The Helly Hansen brand has embraced personalized business-to-business clothes and crafted a dynamic brand history. Theodor Tollefsen, Helly Hansen’s eCommerce manager, is considered a trailblazer and maverick by many with his cutting edge approach. 

Tollefsen stated in a recent Adobe Business article, “We created a solution that allowed us to break into new markets easily. We now have 55 different sites with seven different language options, payment methods, and shipping rules.” 

Helly Hansen has created a genuine one-of-a-kind online shopping experience for their clients by utilizing Magento 2.

What are the outcomes of the Hansen method? They are nothing short of astonishing.

  • 24 % increase in traffic
  • 48 % increase in mobile traffic
  • 45 % revenue increase. 

Since using Magento 2, Hansen has experienced substantial growth.

Further, we had to install the Magento 2 GDPR extension that helps eCommerce stores get ready for the General Data Protection Regulation. 

Challenge #2. GDPR

The GDPR’s mission is essentially philanthropic, with two key aims in mind:

  1. Ensure that individual users’ personal data is always treated with respect.
  2. Remove barriers to data exchange across areas by harmonizing legislation across nations.

Overall, the GDPR is nearly solely concerned with personal data, which refers to a variety of unique user information. Specifically, everything that may be used to identify a person.

Our Point of View

To cap it all, our experts had to handle deep customisations in the online shop’s layout and adjust the front-end part, as well as carry out customisations for a product selection and display. Besides, we should set up a price change on configurable products. 

We have compiled a helpful list of the 9 top features that you need to grow your sales goals successfully. 

Challenge #3. Customisation

We have compiled a helpful list of the 5 top features that you need to grow your sales goals successfully. 

#1. Navigation 

Shoppers dislike confusing and difficult-to-navigate websites. Do not hesitate to use a mega-menu to display things on the navigation website to your shoppers proudly. Also, don’t be afraid to use short links to bring your customers to the information you want them to see.

#2. Filters & Layered Navigation

When designing a sports store website, you’ll want to include filters first, followed by photos to show how they work. In addition, you can list other attributes and sports-related things that will partner well. Consider using images to showcase the filters. The filters may also be found in the sidebar, which is in an easily accessible place of the screen where your customers will be able to view and use the feature.

#3. Needs & Sports Goods Matching 

You may even provide advice to assist the customer in making an intelligent decision. Having a match help section is a significant benefit that most customers appreciate and value. 

#4. High-Converting Product Page

Humans are very visual creatures by nature. Most buyers prefer to look at photos and other appealing items rather than read a lot. People want to see what they’re getting before they buy it; therefore, they’ll want to look at it from every aspect. You simply can’t overdo it with images. Utilise colours and distinguishing typography to make your brand clearly recognisable. You can absolutely attract attention with appealing content, graphics, and colourful font.

#5. Upselling and Cross-Selling 

Upselling techniques, along with renewals, are exceedingly popular. You can add similar goods to the product pages of each sports shop. When potential buyers see anything that interests them, they will click on it. You’ll keep the buyer on your website for a more extended period, which may help them plan and finalise the purchase.
