My Role…

In my role as Media Manager at Better Bedding, I was tasked with (solely) the development of a brand new eCommerce website. This exciting project involved implementing a PrestShop eCommerce platform, establishing stock control systems, and setting up the financial back-end for seamless transactions. We used SiteGround to host the website.

I uploaded hundreds of product images, product information and price, making sure that the on-line discount, was in tandem with our monthly/seasonal sale adverts and Facebook advertising.

Variants…

I added variants to a product that had more than one option, such as size or color. Each combination of option values for a product can be a variant of that product. I could adjust the pricing, inventory, and shipping settings for the product from the product details page created.

 

One of the key responsibilities I had was to ensure that the website was user-friendly and visually appealing, while also being functional and easy to navigate for customers. Working solely, I created a website that not only showcased our products effectively but also provided a smooth and enjoyable shopping experience for our customers.

Crucial Role…

In addition to the website build, I also played a crucial role in implementing/monitoring the necessary back-end systems to ensure that the business could efficiently manage inventory, process orders, and handle financial transactions. This required a thorough understanding of eCommerce platforms and financial software (Stripe), as well as a keen attention to detail to ensure that everything ran smoothly and efficiently.

 

Another key aspect of the job was to design and create monthly newsletters using Mailchimp, a popular email marketing platform. These newsletters were an essential tool for us to connect with our subscribed customer base and keep them up to date with the latest news and offers. In addition to providing information about new products or services, the newsletters also included special deals and discounts that were exclusive to our subscribers.

 

Overall, my experience as a Media Manager at Better Bedding allowed me to gain valuable knowledge and expertise in the development and management of eCommerce websites. I am proud to have played a significant role in the successful launch of the new website and the continued growth of our online sales. This project has provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the importance of a strong online presence and the essential components needed for a successful eCommerce platform.
