Does Parkfield have any exciting news or upcoming plans?
We are about to launch our largest Shopify project yet (netaya.com). The website uses Nextopia and has over 9k products. We’ve also just completed our final eCommerce Meetup in NYC this year, which had an awesome turnout. We gave the audience tips on Drop Shipping, and how to build their eCommerce brand. We enjoy putting these events on for the NYC eCommerce community, as it allows people to meet face to face with industry experts and share ideas.
Why do you think search & navigation is important? What are some of the challenges your customers are facing with search and nav?
We believe Search & navigation is the backbone to any website, it truly is the unsung hero that people only notice the importance of when it doesn’t work. Without good navigation on your website, it doesn’t matter how beautiful your website is or how great your products are. Poor navigation can lead to frustrated people and poor search functionality will lead to unfound products, meaning a loss of sales. Whenever we start on a project we first focus on navigation throughout the site. The next step is the product and category layout which we allow to aid, and sometimes determine, the layout of the site.
What is it like working with the Nextopia team?
The team is fantastic, really responsive and provides a great service for our clients.
What is your company’s favorite quote?
“Can you make it pop?”
