eCommerce Success Story: jb and me

JB and Me jb and me sells women’s designer clothing both in their store location in Holland Michigan, and also on their newly developed website at jbandme.com.  jb and me (yes, that’s supposed to be lowercase) contacted Blue Acorn in July of 2008 with the goal of improving their existing eCommerce site.

When we first contacted Blue Acorn, we were looking for a website that was user friendly, fast, and easy to manage. We found Blue Acorn on the Magento website. After a few phone conferences and researching other companies, we knew Blue Acorn would be the best choice for us. We needed our website up and running before the holidays and it had to be cost effective. We had the website up within three months and the price was the best we found.Sara Onken – Website Manager, jb and me

The team at jb and me set forth on a plan with Blue Acorn to drastically improve their web presence in an effort to increase revenue, and put them in a better position against well established online competitors.  Together, we decided to move forward on the Magento Commerce platform, which aligned with their requirements and website goals.  In addition, we provided consultation in numerous areas of online operations, from marketing, to SEO, and custom development for functionality not existing in the out of box platform.  What we put together was a robust web presence, built on a Magento Commerce instance with customizations aimed to improve the user experience, that now generates organic web traffic and does a better job at converting visitors into buyers.

Phase 1 was a success for us. The project was done on time with all of our request completed. Blue Acorn managed all of our request and changes in a friendly and a “Yes we can do that” attitude. We are excited to continue to work with them to continue to grow our website!Sara Onken – Website Manager, jb and me

Since re-launching, and with our SEO efforts, jbandme.com has manged to dramatically improve its search engine positioning for a number of key phrases.  In fact, their top 10 placement for relevant keyphrases increased 400%.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with jb and me as we collaborate on ideas and methods to continue growing the revenue generated from their website.

Overall, we wanted to say thanks to Blue Acorn for all their hard work. The team is very knowledgeable and always willing to offer advice on what avenues would be best to grow the website. We highly recommend this company for eCommerce design and consulting work.Sara Onken – Website Manager, jb and me
