KeenStores Custom Storefronts rock, let us tell you why!
- Your customized Keen Store will take on the life of your brand beyond ordinary template manipulation. Adding your logo, matching colors and setting fonts is just the beginning.
- Stores are designed to look clean and attractive while being easy to navigate.
- Updating Stores is easy with our simple Admin system.
When we say a customized storefront, we mean customized! Your KeenStores home page incorporates modern web design with a large banner area front & center to feature what’s most important to your store & customers today. Banner images rotate when multiple are uploaded
Once customers get to your site, helping them find what they will buy is the next priority. Our storefront helps you do this with the ability to feature a handful of products right on the front page. Maybe you want to display your most popular products, you can choose to automatically show the most the popular products based on sales. Alternatively, you may want to display products connected to a promotion – in which case just manually select which products to display.
In addition to your home page and product pages, you have the option to build out additional static pages. You can use these pages for anything – common uses include telling customers how to get in touch with you, about your shop’s history, additional services, and promotions.
Our admin system makes publishing additions or changes to your site simple so it won’t become the dreaded task at your shop. But don’t worry, if you can’t figure something out, call our support team and we’ll help you!
Other frills include adding Newsletter subscription fields and social media buttons to your site. Newsletter subscription fields enable visitors interested in engaging with your business to provide their email address. Use this email list to keep your shop top of mind through newsletters and promotional emails. Another bit of icing optional through our customization is the ability to add social media icons. A strong presence on social media platforms gives your shop the opportunity to extend its personality and possibly draw business. Connecting social users with your store and vise versa can have great benefits.
Private Storefronts make your biggest customers think they’re No. 1!
Do your biggest customers place repeat orders or have custom pricing? If so, save them time and effort by creating a store just for them! Private stores have the same level of flexibility as your public KeenStore and can be customized to a particular customer with the products they buy most, their templates and special pricing. These stores require a login. Our product cloning and linking features makes it easy to add & update products across your public & private stores, and cuts out double work. Have your private stores further resonate with big customers with customizations based on the look and feel of their brand.
And, don’t worry – all sales from all of your storefronts are funneled into one feed within the admin site making it easy to process all of your orders!
