How to improve your Digital DNA

Category: Tips and Tricks
July 5, 2017

Every business in 2017 has its own unique Digital DNA. This encompasses every single aspect of your business identity online. Sure, you may have an amazing bricks-and-mortar business, but in the 21st century this needs to be accompanied by a thriving online presence.

Improving your Digital DNA can start with small tasks and gradually work its way into shaping your complete online presence. Your website and social media accounts should reflect your branding and users should have a streamlined experience going from one medium to another.

The simplest factor in refining your user’s online experience is to have a strong company logo that is used at every opportunity online and offline. Your logo should work with your brand identity to ensure that your colour scheme and feel is used everywhere. This gives you a professional identity online.

Having accounts on the various social network sites also forms part of your Digital DNA. Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter have been traditionally the most popular, but more and more enterprising companies are using Instagram and Snapchat to promote their products and services. Setting up social media accounts is usually a straightforward process, but keep in mind that your personal accounts and business accounts usually should be separate. Nobody wants to see 100s of photos of your cat – unless you’re a business selling products for our feline friends!

A strong website and regular blog updates are crucial to your Digital DNA. People will look to Google when searching online and your website is often the first time a potential customer is introduced to your company. Therefore your website needs to be professional, user-friendly, and accessible – this is especially true if you are selling goods or services through an eCommerce website or a mobile application.

If you’d like to improve your website, social media, brand identity, or want a Digital DNA assessment and overhaul, contact 2Cubed today!

Bespoke Web Designs from 2Cubed

June 9, 2017

Summer is finally here! Well, it was for a few days at the start of June where we all had an ice cream and thought “how amazing would Ireland be if it was sunny all the time?” The rain came back a couple of days later – we should have known it wasn’t to last! So we decided to bring the laptops back inside and design and develop some bespoke websites!

Despite the distraction of the sunshine, we have launched a lot of beautiful new bespoke websites in the past couple of months. These websites involved a lot of custom coding for special features unique to the companies involved.

The Gift & Art Gallery

We recently launched the new website for The Gift & Art Gallery, Dundalk, Co. Louth. Michelle wanted a clean, easy-to-use website to help promote her product range and also sell her products online. The Gift & Art Gallery has a huge following on Facebook, but needed a web presence and online shop to help you find the perfect gift!

Killowen

Killowen Farm is one of our favourite Wexford businesses – mainly because we love their delicious natural yoghurts. They worked with 2Cubed redesigning their existing website and giving it an upgrade – making it much more user-friendly, slicker, and helping fit in with their beautiful branding.

IMCA

The IMCA are the Institute of Management Consultants and Advisers in Ireland and needed a website to cater for the needs of their members. Their new website has many private sections and areas filled with resources that are only accessible to members – and you can even sign up and become a member through the website if you’re not already involved!

Shopify eCommerce Design

February 16, 2017

Many businesses choose to use Shopify as their eCommerce platform when selling products online. Shopify can work wonderfully for shops who wish to take the hassle out of their online presence, and are looking for something that is easy-to-use and customer-friendly.

Simple Shopify websites can look very templated, and therefore often do not reflect a company’s brand identity. However, at 2Cubed, we can create a beautiful bespoke Shopify website that looks and feels like an extension of your offline businesses.

2Cubed offer integration with Shopify, custom Shopify websites, and even can redesign existing Shopify websites to give them a brand new website design for 2017.

We work with companies in Dublin, Wexford, and throughout Ireland to help them create, integrate, and develop bespoke Shopify websites.

Magento 2 & eCommerce Website Design

Category: Projects
February 10, 2017

For many businesses, a simple eCommerce website will not cater for all their requirements. They need more than just a simple shop, and require specific shipping, order tracking, logistics, and fulfilment needs. They might need to use multiple currencies, or multiple languages; they may have different product needs for different locations e.g. some products may be restricted in certain countries. They may need to link their online shop with their EPOS or stock management systems.

When building eCommerce websites, 2Cubed often design and develop bespoke Magento 2 websites with specific database implementation to meet your business’s exact needs. We can custom-build a website to match your company’s requirements. No two companies are exactly the same. We know your business is unique, and we can build a unique eCommerce website that is exactly what you need.

We have vast experience designing and developing Magento and Magento 2 websites, and know exactly how to deliver a beautiful bespoke eCommerce website that performs exactly how both you and your customers expect it to.
