Featured Client: The Devon Beach Co.
A Devon Web Design Company Helping Businesses Grow
Four years ago, Marilu Wren, owner of The Devon Beach Company was looking for a company providing web design in Devon to help her business grow. Hoot Media took on the project, liaising closely with Marilu to create a website that displayed her wide range of products, inspired by the serenity and beauty of Devon’s local landscape, in a way that made it simple for customers to browse and purchase from their extensive range of award winning items.
The website designed by Hoot Media receives more than 11,000 visits each year and presents each of the items sold by The Devon Beach Company in a user friendly manner. Over 200 different products with 300 different options for sizes, colour or fabric textures are presented on the website over four separate groups – Relax, Cook, Décor and Explore.
Along with ensuring the website was responsive for mobile, tablet, and desktop computer users, Hoot Media integrated multiple payment methods and a weight based shipping function that makes it easy for customers in the UK or abroad to calculate postage for their purchases or even arrange to collect from one of three Devon stores in Churchstow, Salcombe, or their latest premises, picturesque Dartmouth. Built on a WordPress platform that makes it simple for business owners to manage their content from, The Devon Beach Company’s customers are able to locate items they wish to purchase and complete transactions in an average of 2 minutes and 24 seconds.
A Rapidly Expanding Devon Based Business
From beanbags to coastal inspired furniture and onto artwork and bodycare products, The Devon Beach Company have covered all customers’ desires to bring a little of Devon’s coast into everyday life. Their dedication to sourcing and designing truly functional, eco-friendly and award winning products has paid off. In 2017, The Devon Beach Company were featured as shop of the month in Coast magazine and in December 2018, their gorgeous Corono blanket and popular Welshman’s Caviar were featured in the Christmas Gift Guide.
The Devon Beach Company’s website has helped the business grow from one retail location to three and enabled customers from all over the UK and Europe to browse their varied range of coastal inspired items with ease.
“Hoot Media took everything I wanted the website to be and delivered a beautifully designed website that was not only noticeable, but a pleasure for my customers to use.” Marilu Wren said.
