Glamorous Blog Design & Web Development
A blog can be a fantastic standalone website, or can be used in conjunction with your boutique informational or e-commerce website. Because of the variety of our client base, Miss Blossom Design™ can help advise you as to the right blog choice to suit your end goals, budget and business needs.
Our preference for a stand alone blog is Wordpress®. Wordpress® is a fabulous state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. The coding is open source which means that once installed and implemented, there are no licensing fees or ongoing costs, except when you want us to upgrade the security or look and feel.
If your budget is tight, a free e-blogger account with Google, can provide the basic blogging tools, and doesn't cost a lot to customise (although it is less comprehensive in terms of functions and usability). It can also be embedded into your online store as well.
Miss Blossom Design™ has senior designers to create the look and feel of your blog, as well as install and implement the design in an SEO friendly way, utilising your keywords for optimum traffic.

Introduce your gorgeous products and/or services to the world market through our e-commerce provider, Big Commerce®. You can sell online safely and stylishly. Start selling online with your own secure ordering and shopping cart solution, that is tailored specifically for the feminine market.

Miss Blossom Design™ is flexible with solutions, because an e-commerce site needs to address a wide range of usability issues from the customers' needs, not to mention the needs of the administrator.
A note about apps:
Miss Blossom Design™ has also built several apps for mobile devices that can make your website device specific, so your clients can shop from their phone. If you require a mobile version of your site, please let us know so we can build it into the cost of the site development. It's a little more, but it can make the difference between closing a sale or the customer going elsewhere, so definitely a great add-on.
BeautiFul E-Newsletters With A Strong ROI
Opt-in mailing lists with E-newsletters educate and remind your customers about your boutique web business and it's products and/or services. The return on the effort is high, especially if it is beautiful, targeted and great to read with a high click through rate. We recommend m
Using luxurious, glamorous, enticing and inspiring images, titles and copy can encourage customers to "click through" and improve your boutique website performance.
Keeping in touch with existing and potential customers in a cost effective and environmentally friendly way is fundamental. Not only will you save money on printing, but you'll be saving trees as well. Introduce your new feminine products, sales, new boutique services, techniques and tips.
Implement a newsletter system into your marketing plan that is measurable, cost effective and, importantly is SPAM law compliant. There are several user friendly companies that offer third party newsletter services and we know the best ones for each size and style of business. Not only that, but we can add a newsletter field into your store in a matter of minutes so you can set up a professional database and create professional looking e-newsletters, just like the big guys.
Blossom can design your initial newsletter template so you can complete future newsletters yourself, or we can design your successive newsletters. The choice is yours. You'll be able to track who opens, clicks through and and who forwards your newsletter.
Glamorous, Elegant Graphics, Icons, Titles & Illustrations
Miss Blossom Design™ can create stylish, chic graphics, social media icons, banners, along with many other web based visuals to spice up your internet presence. Fancy animated .GIF, pretty and effective banners and gorgeously girly titles are my specialty.
Powerful Website Management and Development
A website can be one of the most successful tools for the promotion of your feminine business online. A successful boutique website is always well planned and well maintained. This is vital, not for just aesthetics and content, but also security.
Blossom knows that not all small business owners have resources for a staff web designer. If your time is valuable or you don't have the knowledge and skills, you may not be able to do this yourself.
This is the reason Miss Blossom Design™ decided to introduce a website management plan.
The time included in each plan can be used in many ways to improve your website including:
- Design and development of new and glamorous web pages
Updating news, deals/special offers and links pages
Updating security on blogs and shopping carts
Improving search engine placement (SEO)
Updating product information
Replacing outdated prices or updating your price list
Reviewing your online marketing and social media strategy

Miss Blossom Design™ Niche Web Design Philosophy
Miss Blossom Design™ specialise in design for a feminine audience. We don't do "masculine", "masculine", male oriented or plain. If you are after a site that inspires and motivates predominantly women, Miss Blossom Design™ can design a web solution for you. After years of experience we know what works online and what drives women to buy online.
Elegant Websites for women
A common theme that has emerged has been women in small business calling up after having difficulties communicating with their web designer/graphic and not getting the website that they wanted, even after paying up to tens of thousands of dollars. Miss Blossom Design™ can also fix many sites that have been designed with a male consumer in mind, changing icons, graphics and type styles.
People come to Miss Blossom Design™ usually via referrals from previous clients, or word of mouth because Blossom has a proven track record of making the whole process simple without any hidden costs, and we always go the extra step in ensuring online success for our clients.
Boutique, Feminine E-Commerce Specialist
Miss Blossom Design™ will go out of our way to explain potentially confusing aspects of e-commerce and web design to our clients (many of whom are unfamiliar with the technology, making them vulnerable in this relatively new market). We will outline what the costs are up front, what you are actually paying for, and ensure you are totally happy with the concepts before we proceed to the implementation stage.
Women and Men Buy Differently Online
The web can be such a male paradigm and Blossom was set up to address the needs of mostly female business owners/managers, wanting to target a predominantly feminine customer base.
Our market research also tells us not to assume all women are the same. We won't patronise or generalise your website design. We meet so many new client who have gone down the track of design with a larger corporate style web design company and it has not resulted in what they want. We listen and we really "get" the way women and female target market browser, purchase and come back again for more.
High End...Not Lowest Common Denominator
Recently I was working with what I would call an "old school" web developer. I was working on the concepts and he was working on the programming. His primary concern, was to ensure that the site loaded quickly and efficiently on all computers i.e. setting the sit up for the lowest common denominator. Now, while I understand the need for this, he was employing tactics that we used years ago in the days of dial up and tiny screens.
As a result, the client ended up with a fast site, that someone with the slowest computer on the planet could have viewed on the tiniest screen. Guess what though...the product was aimed at a mid to high-end targeted demographic, aimed at the western affluent market...the majority of whom have big screens and super fast broadband.
The Miss Blossom Design™ point is simple. Would you design a walk in shop, for a luxury product, using the same philosophy as a variety store - fast, efficient economical - in case some people were alienated?
No. You would ensure everything was luxurious, of the highest quality, gorgeous, intimate and beautiful. Even if it took the customer a little longer to purchase the product.
Why? Because it is about the experience of the purchase and how you feel about the visit - not about "getting in and out" as fast as possible.
It's food for thought when deciding between high image quality, page load speed and designing for the lowest common denominator.
Shopping Trolley Versus Bags and Baskets
Supermarkets offer trolleys and plastic or wire baskets. Does a boutique operate on a quality rather than quantity basis? Yes. Most women are not overly fond of supermarket shopping, so why have a "buy" icon that looks like one from the supermarket or green grocer if you are selling high end products? Big Commerce® allows us to customise these icons, so we can encourage women to click that "add to bag" icon.
Do You Use A Trolley To Buy Designer Products?
Miss Blossom Design™ prefers to think outside the square, and use a high end looking shopping bag, make up case or nice handbag. While there is a place for the stock standard "cart" most of my clients are boutiques and would prefer a more sensitive, up market approach.
We feel that the shopping cart, while it says "buy me" is not always the most clever answer to inducing a woman to part with her hard earned cash. I'd prefer to see a make up case, shopping bag, pram or even a little wardrobe. Something evocative, glamorous and visually inspiring.
