End To End
Cart Consultant is a dream team of end-to-end eCommerce consultants, web designers, developers, marketers, project managers, and sales leaders, each at the top of our respective fields.
We specialize in transforming Enterprise eCommerce business concepts into scalable, high-performing storefronts with powerful, functional, easy-to-use back-ends.
Based in Austin, TX. We do whatever it takes to achieve success for our eCommerce clients and to make their visions a reality.
If you need a call same day, we’re there. If you need someone to come through on a business-critical objective on short notice, you’re in good hands with us.
Cart Consultant builds custom eCommerce applications and implementations using primarily the MERN tech stack.
If an existing solution exists on the market and we believe it will suit your needs and save you money, we will introduce you to one of our many amazing tech partners.
While we work with all platforms, we prefer to implement our eCommerce solutions using the BigCommerce Enterprise SaaS platform due to its flexibility, scalability, strong IT backbone, and excellent Partners ecosystem. BigCommerce centers its company values around doing whatever it takes to help its clients grow, which aligns perfectly with our own core values.
We love Linnworks because it is One Platform.
Total Commerce Control.
Linnworks connects, manages and automates commerce operations, powering businesses to sell wherever their customers are and capture every revenue opportunity.
Vesta works as a pre-PIM software that helps companies with large or complex product catalogs sourced from multiple manufacturers normalize their data and gather it in one place. Think of it as a train station for your product data that has multiple trains coming in (data sources or feeds from manufacturers), and multiple trains going out (pushes to platforms and storefronts i.e. BigCommerce, Amazon, eBay, WooCommerce). Vesta Central does the difficult, dirty eCommerce data work and does it incredibly well. They are an invaluable piece of builds in many verticals such as hardware or automotive.
We recommend ShipStation in nearly every eCommerce build we take on. They simplify multi-channel order management, discounted label printing and order fulfillment, branding shipping, and they integrate with nearly every platform imaginable: BigCommerce, Shopify, WooCommerce, Amazon, eBay, Quickbooks, Channel Advisor, and over 70 more.
The first marketing channel you need to have up and running for an eCommerce business regardless of your vertical is email. To this day, email marketing provides the best return on investment and engagement of any other marketing channel bar-none. Klaviyo is a customer-data centric platform that allows you to automate your email marketing efforts by sending emails based on customer action triggers. They also provide lead generation forms to capture the email addresses of your customers. The email address is the currency of eCommerce marketing and you can use these emails as the foundation of your other marketing channels such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Google AdWords, etc by creating look-a-like audiences.
The hands-down best-in-class enterprise solution for Affiliate marketing. Refersion simplifies affiliate marketing by allowing clients to track, manage and grow their affiliate networks in one easy-to-use dashboard. Built to handle complexity with ease, Refersion allows for effortless creation of affiliate links for your influencers, promotion management, and includes the ability to set custom rewards and commission structures for your affiliates. Refersion integrates with many platforms and systems including BigCommerce and Klaviyo and has an open API.
Shogun offers enhanced, quick-and-easy blog page and web page design. Rather than needing to constantly reach out to a developer for work, a marketing team can easily design their own blog posts in minutes using Shogun. Shogun is an integral part of an eCommerce build on BigCommerce, Shopify, or Magento. Shogun is constantly developing new tools to make the lives of its customers and partners easier and we love to work with them.
In complex eCommerce builds with advanced shipping and logistics needs such as multi-origin shipping, backup carriers, shipping logic based on date and time, in-store pickup and backup carriers, ShipperHQ is a mission-critical tool. When dealing with a tool designed to fit custom and complex needs, world-class customer support and service is a must. We are ShipperHQ evangelists for not only the tool but the wonderful people that make up the company.
Twenty years of eCommerce experience is a long time to test out different PPC (Pay-Per-Click) advertising agencies and after many years of trial and error, we’ve found an agency for Google AdWords and Social Media Marketing that kills it for our clients. Delegator starts their service by offering a complimentary audit of your existing AdWords, or Social Marketing implementation and will sit down with you for an hour explaining exactly what’s wrong with them and how they’d fix them. For absolutely free, no questions asked. During the discovery call, Delegator asserts their expertise and ability to maximize your revenue through Google, Facebook, Youtube, Linkedin, Pinterest, and Reddit. We recommend Delegator to any eCommerce client with more than $5,000/mo AdSpend in their budget.
Cart Consultant Services
We meet with our prospective clients and perform a 100% complimentary analysis of their needs to identify gaps and plan for success in these areas:
- Storefront Design and Extended Functionality
- B2C vs B2B Assessment
- Product Catalog
- Misc. (EDI, Technical Documents)
- Platform Selection, and Extended Functionality
- Software, App and Tech Stack Integration
- Tax and Accounting
- Shipping and Logistics
- Custom Software
One week before launch, we meet with our clients to determine what success looks like six months, one year, three years and five years down the line. We sync up to agree on a shared vision and decide how to make it a reality.
We do not sell pre-set retainer packages. There is no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all solution to any clients’ needs.
Our clients have existing teams and systems to handle different pieces of their business and our goal is to seamlessly work with and integrate with them.
We understand that not every vertical or customer can be reached in the same way. For example: If your customer base is mostly comprised of people aged 65+, we don’t recommend Instagram.
We want to customize a package for our clients geared toward establishing a life-long relationship. That means all value and efficiency, no fluff.
