Introducing Critical Impact K9 Supplies – a family-owned venture led by Sam & Ellen Barraclough. Fuelled by necessity and a passion for flyball, their journey began with a family of six with twelve dogs between them, seeking affordable yet durable collars, leads, tuggies, and clothing.
Racing the indomitable Jess, they recognised the financial strain of frequently replacing gear.
Enter the turning point: their acquisition of an Industrial Sewing Machine, initially for repairs. But the desire for more propelled them. As flyball's grip tightened, they discerned ways to enhance product longevity. From these roots emerged Critical Impact K9 Supplies, now equipped with specialised Industrial Sewing Machines.
Their mission? To offer visually captivating, top-tier products that stand the test of time.
It was evident that they had ambitious goals, yet their existing EKM platform fell short of meeting their requirements for growth and innovation. While their aspirations were clear, their existing toolkit was limited, lacking the comprehensive capabilities they needed.
The urgency for a seamless transition to a more adaptable and scalable solution was undeniable. The company's vision was resolute: they aimed to establish a dynamic ecommerce store capable of winning over customers' hearts and setting the stage for future expansion.
Our mission encompassed turning this vision into reality by addressing critical concerns, including mobile optimisation, SEO enhancement, and a holistic improvement of the user experience. Simultaneously, the company sought to lay the groundwork for an affiliate system, a strategic move to create alliances and significantly extend their market reach. Although the challenges were substantial, our team was eager to fashion a solution that would not only fulfill expectations but exceed them.
In the face of ambitious aspirations, the company was contending with the restrictions of their existing EKM platform. Misaligned with their growth ambitions and the need for a technological uplift, the company envisioned a leading-edge ecommerce platform that would captivate their audience and provide a strong base for potential future growth.
Seamless Transition to Greater Potential
The company embarked on a transformation journey, which was not just a mere platform switch but a complete transformation . A notable highlight was the rise in the click-through rate from 3.3% to a commendable 8.5%, signifying an increase in audience engagement and a renewed interest in the website's content and offerings.
Search Engine Supremacy
The new platform brought along a marked enhancement in the website's visibility on search engines. This growing online footprint is paving the way for a broader organic reach and potential expansion of the customer base.
Beyond the evident changes, the technical backbone of the website witnessed a significant overhaul. Enhanced indexability on Google ensures greater accessibility and visibility to a wider audience. Meanwhile, the integration of the affiliate system, although in its initial stages, promises expansive market outreach and burgeoning business alliances.
User Experience Transformed
The transformation left no stone unturned, with the front-end user experience receiving a substantial uplift. With optimal mobile responsiveness, refined SEO strategies, and an overall improved user interface, the site stands as a modern, efficient, and user-friendly platform.
A pivotal change post-transition is the empowerment bestowed upon the client. They now command a heightened control over the website's design, features, and functionalities. This autonomy translates to agility, enabling the client to introduce new elements, adapt existing features, and seamlessly pivot their content and marketing strategies in tune with evolving digital trends.
The path to transformation, though fraught with challenges, has been a resounding success. The early results signal the immense potential inherent in this new platform.
The company's vision, paired with our unwavering commitment, has ensured that the groundwork for future expansion isn't just established but is already showing considerable promise.
