Sandbanks Style

Project Brief

Sandbanks Style Stand Up Paddleboards is a a family owned & run business based at Poole Harbour, Dorset. They have partnered with industry experts and companies who supply the finest materials to set up a Stand Up Paddleboard company that offers the best value, best quality paddle boards in the UK. Stocked in many stores and offered at over 50 rental companies across the UK, Sandbanks Style has provided athletes across the world with a new way to Stand Up Paddleboard, for less.

Although their products were modern, the system and platform they were using did not live up to expectations and could not provide them with the support and demand the business had after growing so quickly. They came to us to help migrate them to the Shopify platform and utilise its adaptability and simplicity for online and over the phone sales, housing all their orders, stocks and customers in one place, rather than spread across various platforms as they currently had.

Migration, design & functionality

We migrated across all the products, customers and current content from their Wix platform and adapted this to work with Shopify. We helped split out the content further across individual pages to create the more intimate and informative experience that the customers had over the phone and in store. It was hugely important to our client to keep this family feel on the website, so we brought this in through graphics and story telling, all whilst keeping it professional and on brand.

We helped make the website feel more current to match the branding and new physical store by introducing icons that embellished the site, video content and using and amending imagery that Sandbanks supplied.

Within a few weeks of the project launching, sales increased and workload for Sandbanks Style had reduced. Shopify was now handling purchases through the website and phone in a more streamlined way meaning Sandbanks no longer had to manually confirm, track and follow orders as these were now sent straight to the warehouse, allowing our client to focus more on the customers themselves.
