Hanajana Swimwear
I acted as a full-stack web developer on this project. I built everything from the UI sketch files to the back-end architecture, as well as the SEO and Facebook advertising strategy. They were using Shopify at the time and wanted to migrate for multiple reasons. The new website had a substantial impact on their business, including the new multicurrency checkout system that allowed them to reach a broader audience, opening to new markets. They saved 6% in revenue from Shopify fees like fixed costs, plugins, and per-sale fees. They reported a 160% increase in unique visitors from France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Austria, and Switzerland. The new website brought over 410% of email subscribers and an 82% ROI in under a month.

Facebook advertising ROAS in new countries went from 5 to 22, representing a 340% increase.
