THE PROBLEM 

 

Despite having a full catalog of beautiful handmade crosses, Nailed to the Cross was unable to consistently drive sales in their online store until partnering with Pinnacle View. Their ecommerce site was not built according to  online best practices and the business had no strategy for online advertising. Due to these two factors, the only consistent means the business had for creating sales was through trade shows and word of mouth from past customers. Nailed to the Cross approached Pinnacle View to redesign their website, create an online advertising strategy, and execute advertising campaigns that would provide a positive return on advertising investment.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”full_width_background” full_screen_row_position=”middle” scene_position=”center” text_color=”dark” text_align=”left” color_overlay=”#ffffff” overlay_strength=”1″][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” width=”1/1″ tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” top_padding=”40″ bottom_padding=”40″ text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″ column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid”][vc_column_text]

OUR PROCESS

 

The first step in redesigning nailedtothecross.org was assisting the business with new imagery for their product catalog. The site’s original product images were poorly lit, low resolution, and did not highlight the craftsmanship of each handmade cross. We worked closely with them to direct their new product photoshoots.

At this same time, the Pinnacle View team was also designing an entirely new website for the business. The new nailedtothecross.org was was modern and sleek. Our team also ensured that it was an intelligent e-commerce website. Tracking pixels were added to the site that allowed us to launch highly accurate online advertising campaigns on Facebook and Instagram.
