I had the privilege of working with Plastiflo, a manufacturer of polyethylene plastic feeding and watering troughs for livestock, to create them a brand new website.
Their old website needed an upgrade in a number of areas.
First off, it wasn’t mobile friendly. That means reading the site’s pages on a mobile device was a chore.
Their target market is the South African livestock farming community.
Most farmers are out of office during the day.
But smartphones make it easy for farmers to access information relevant to their farming activities.
But a non-mobile-friendly website makes getting the right information harder.
For a company like Plastiflo, getting a mobile-friendly website was of utmost importance.
But Plastiflo wanted to take things a step further.
They wanted their catalogue available in digital format with an option for people to request a quote.
So I created them a website using an ecommerce solution, but instead of letting visitors add items to a cart, I set it up to let visitors add items to a quote. I call it fauxmerce.
Once the visitor sends the request for quote, a company rep can put together a quote and email it to the interested party.
Of course, the website comes with all the other bells and whistles my full marketing website package offers.
Plastiflo’s website’s already showing a return on investment. They’ve received a number of quote requests since I started work on the site and it’s early days still.
