End of Line Golf are one of the UK’s leading suppliers of quality discounted golf equipment. Selling equipment from some of the top brands in the golfing industry, they are a one stop shop for all golfing needs.

The Brief

End of Line Golf wanted a website that would:

  • Demonstrate their offerings clearly, using a naming convention that would generate, intrigue and also enhance their customer engagement with the products on offer
  • Be fully responsive and function across multiple devices
  • Ensure that the user journey was simple and easy to traverse

The Result

We worked with the End of Line Golf team to create a site that would truly engage. We decided to build this site using OpenCart, due to it being a powerful open-source eCommerce system that is designed to be feature rich and user-friendly, and was suitable for the client budget. We went about creating the website and ensured that it had high usability and that the customer journey to purchase goods was as simple as possible. The end result was a new website design that is pleasing to the eye, consistent, and relevant to what the company stands for.

Berkshire Billtong Website

Berkshire Biltong is a unique manufacturer, founded on a passion for high quality Biltong. They use high quality ingredients and do not rush the production process, resulting in the tastiest Biltong that the Zodiac Media team has ever had.

The Brief

  • Create a brand new bespoke website that accurately reflects their brand
  • Provide an eCommerce outlet for all their products
  • Keep their user experience as simple as possible and make the content easy to browse

The Result

With the client’s needs in mind, we decided that Magento would be the best solution. This allowed for greater control in merchandising, promotion, and sales of the products that are available on the site. This also made browsing the site and managing the product catalogue a triviality. The site includes attractive product images and an intuitive navigation system, enabling the consumer to have all the information at their fingertips regardless of the browser used. Responsive templates and a simple Magento CMS meant that the website was ready to go in record time and sell tasty Biltong to the masses.

Nabru Sofas Website Image

Nabru have over eleven years of experience in manufacturing and retailing self-assembly sofas. In that time they have sold over 150,000 products and have serviced more than 50,000 customers. Nabru manufacture all of their sofas in the UK at their headquarters in the Greater London area.

The Brief

Zodiac Media has been involved with Nabru for nearly two years. During this time we have been tasked with:

  • Undertaking a complete rebuild of the site’s frontend and a full backend code refactoring
  • Replacing their mobile site
  • Migrating all the legacy codebase
  • Optimising the site to increase search engine rankings
  • Optimising content so it appears correctly in Google Shopping results

The Result

Nabru wanted an online presence capable of handling whatever advances were thrown at it. As with all of our customers, we implemented all of our new changes in a test environment and then deployed the changes onto the live site without affecting the data in the live database or the customer experience. We built their new site using a "mobile-first" approach.  This meant that Nabru had a single website that could cater to multiple platforms, making it easier to maintain and update.

Nabru's diverse range of current and potential customers is always at the forefront of every decision. A very close relationship has been fostered through daily update emails and weekly meetings. This has allowed us to create as much transparency as possible, giving the client detailed knowledge about the status of the project at all times. We have had a great working relationship with the Nabru for many years, and have developed their website as they have changed and developed as an organisation.
