Magento and Sole Society Join Guidance in a Discussion of Brand Storytelling, Responsive Design, and Conversion Requirements during April 16, 2014 Webinar

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (April 7, 2014) – Guidance, a web and mobile eCommerce design and development agency trusted by Internet Retailer Top 500 companies, invites fashion retailers to discover the best strategies and tactics to increase online sales at their upcoming webinar “Digital Chic: How to Design a Fashion Site That Sells”. Co-presented in conjunction with Magento, this webinar will feature Jon Provisor, Guidance CIO, and Andy Solomon, COO of Sole Society, the leading eCommerce site providing high-quality, on-trend shoes, handbags and accessories at affordable prices.

The webinar will begin at 9am PDT/11am CDT/12pm EDT, on Wednesday, April 16, 2014.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Features Driving Conversion: What design and functional features are converting the most shoppers in fashion
  • Responsive Design: How to improve results and optimize across devices
  • Brand Storytelling: How to communicate your brand online to establish relationships with customers
  • Targeting and Personalization: How to create brand loyalty and repeat business through custom offers

“Reports* indicate 36% of fashion shoppers buy from multi-brand retailers and not directly from brands, themselves,” said Jason Meugniot, CEO of Guidance. “We encourage fashion brands to learn how to capture those shoppers, effectively broadening their reach,” he continued.

Fashion brands such as Sole Society, Robert Graham, and more have partnered with Guidance to launch Magento Enterprise Edition sites that sell not just products but also a distinct and powerful brand experience. Both Solomon and Provisor will offer real world examples of successful strategies employed in the fashion industry.

“Guidance has implemented several fashion-forward Magento Enterprise Edition sites that aim to help businesses drive more traffic, convert browsers into buyers and boost online revenue,” said Jeff Herrera, Head of Partner Marketing with Magento. “Fashion merchants have the opportunity to leverage Guidance’s fashion eCommerce experience to help gain a competitive edge in the fashion space.”
