A Holistic Client Approach: Step-by-Step Guides to Go Beyond Online Stores

By Hayley Bell on 24 Aug 2020

You and I both know that in our industry, a mug isn’t just a mug, and a shirt isn’t just a shirt. It’s a connection between a brand and an individual. So why don’t we view online stores the same way?

It’s easy to think of online stores as just being another stand-alone solution. And that’s not wrong. But it’s also not right. From our perspective, the biggest factor preventing an online store from being as successful as it can be is when a distributor or decorator views the online store as just an online store.

So what happens when you include online stores as a single part of a larger initiative, as part of a more holistic approach? Here are some step-by-step guides you can use to stand out and offer a truly impactful experience for your customers rather than ‘just another online store.’
