Bond Media
& Magento

We have been involved in Magento e-commerce design and development since its release in 2008, and have an experienced multi-disciplined team to help you achieve your goals.

We have worked with a variety of clients and delivered interactive e-commerce websites that are feature rich, robust and scalable. Clients come to us not just for our ability to create customised Magento e-commerce stores with an engaging user experience, but also to draw on our knowledge, help, and support.

Need a guide to help you control your store? No problem! We provide user manuals tailored to your website that cover the key aspects of managing your operation. Don't have time to run your store on a day to day basis? We can provide telephone support to help you focus on getting the most from your investment.

FASTER

When Magento is setup correctly, and the site design and code is optimised, it is an extremely fast e-commerce platform. To get the most out of Magento's speed it needs to be hosted on dedicated servers.

We have a network of dedicated Magento optimised servers setup for our exclusive use in a UK datacentre, and an on-site engineer who monitors our hardware to ensure we have constant up-time.

MORE VISIBLE

Out of the box, Magento is very search engine friendly and follows search engine optimisation best practices. You can create friendly URLs, modify meta content, and set image alt tags. There are some additional tweaks and features we can provide that will make your Magento store more visible in search engines, and generate great listings in Google .

INTEGRATED

The days of having your Magento store on one web address, and your blog on another are over. Combine Magento with WordPress on one URL, and you can make products from your inventory appear on your blog, and cross-post content from other areas of your website. That is only the beginning...

All The Reporting
You can Handle

Magento's out of the box reporting is amazing. Want to know your best sellers? Average customer spend? Sales reports by Day? Month? Year? It's all available at the click of a few buttons.

What you do with all this information, how you analyse it, and how you adapt your business to the intelligence you gain from the data determines how successful an online business you will have. Trying to understand all the information Magento provides can be overwhelming. We can customise the reporting dashboard to make the critical information easier to see.

Money on the move
with Bond Media

The rise of the smartphone, the battle between Apple and Google to be the main mobile phone operating system and the increasing power of handsets mean that surfing websites from phones will become as common place as browsing from a computer.

Mobile specific pages, or a fully responsive website will pay for itself as customers make their purchases where and how they feel comfortable. When planned carefully the design can look as great on a mobile as it does on a desktop, and you don't have to sacrifice features either.

High Performance
Magento Hosting with Bond Media

Magento like most e-commerce products is constantly evolving and requires an optimized hosting solution that evolves with it in order to get the benefits it provides to your online store.

Because of this we have developed our own in-house Magento hosting solution which powers your website and ensures it remains fast at all times. Our hosting solution is built on years of experience working with clients large and small and is backed by an experienced team of server administrators.

Using a optimized combination of server technologies like VMware, Nginx and Percona, we are able to provide dedicated resources to run your store efficiently, and most importantly are not shared with any other websites.

Integration
with the tools you use with Bond Media

High volume operators use customer relationship management (C.R.M.) systems and enterprise resource planning (E.R.P.) applications to track customer activity and use data mining to spot buying trends.

Email marketing platforms such as Mailchimp, and Adestra give you complete control over your communication strategy, and provide critical data such as number of times opened, items clicked on within the email, and number of people who purchased as a result of reading the email

Do you have an accounting / invoicing system? How much time and energy would you save if orders taken on your Magento site were transferred seamlessly into your software?

Training.

When you login to the administration area for the first time you have so many options at your disposal it is easy to be overwhelmed.

Regardless of whether you are uploading products, creating a discount code, or reviewing the day's sales performance, there is a process that has to be followed. Some of these tasks you will do over and over until it becomes second nature. Some actions are only done once every so often, and it is all to easy to be confused by the order in which to create a block, assign a widget, apply to a product and so on.

We provide on request a user guide that takes you through the management of your e-commerce website. Unlike generic online tutorials that explain how to create a basic product, the user guide describes how to control your content. The steps are explained in short sentences, with a screenshot for every significant action so the reader can easily match what they have done with the instructions provided. The guide is written with business owners in mind; jargon is kept to a minimum, and sections are clearly labelled.

Perfect for SEO.

Without a comprehensive search engine optimisation (SEO) strategy for your ecommerce site you may as well close your virtual doors.

Magento out of the box has powerful administration features that make the management of meta data, page titles and URLs easy to control, but there's so much more. Site architecture, content strategy, keyword analysis, rich snippets, anchor text .... do these words mean anything to you?

Often SEO is only talked about well after the development phase has begun, and issues which can be addressed by careful planning become complicated due to a poor understanding of what needs to be done.
