How would a Magento 2 website help my business?
It’s simple: customers love websites that are fast, well-designed, easily navigable and hassle-free. So when you combine the Magento 2 functionality with our knowledge and experience of designing amazing websites that are optimised to be search engine and user-friendly, you can expect to:
- Attract more users
- Convert more clicks
- Generate more sales
Magento 2 sites are scalable and adaptable. They can handle 28% more orders per hour, allowing your website to:
- Accommodate surges around peak sale times
- Grow as your sales, inventory and company expands
Websites should be hassle free, not just for the customer but also for you the administrator. Your Magento 2 website comes with a simplified, intuitive dashboard, and we’ll also provide you and your team with indepth training on how to use the platform.
HOW WE’LL WORK WITH YOU
The first step will be a free consultation where we will assess your website and your company’s requirements. After this, we will work with you to develop a roadmap that will lay out clearly how we will upgrade your website to achieve your business’s vision, goals and objectives. Finally, we’ll move on to development and testing.
Your dedicated project manager will walk you through every step of the process and give you a clear timeline of what you can expect and when from your Magento 2 migration.
WHAT ARE THE TIME SCALES?
Magento 2 is a new platform, which means you should expect it to take the same length of time as any new website build. Typically, we’d allow between three to six months, but this will vary depending on:
- Design requirements
- Complexity of the data
- Level of customised functionality required
- It’s also a good idea to allow for plenty of time for any last-minute contingencies.

I-COM delivers SEO, PPC, brand marketing and web development for us - that wide digital marketing strategy encompasses everything we want to achieve across our digital channels.

As an agency, I-COM is ahead of the curve - anticipating what Google and other search engines will be looking for in the future and making recommendations on how best to react.
From the outset the I-COM team invested the time and resource to understand our business needs, in-line with our overall objectives. We had a fixed monthly budget and it was their role to convert that into placement fees through a hardworking, integrated online marketing strategy. Through a combination of SEO, PPC, Link building, PR and content marketing, together we implemented a really well executed campaign that generated the results that we were looking for.
The marketing team at Lanes have been working with I-COM for the last couple of years. The team at I-COM are a breath of fresh air. They have put some meaningful projects together, that have delivered demonstrable results and they can and do respond to matters that are time sensitive. I love the can do attitude of the team.
It's critical for a business like Sellick Partnership to be at the forefront of digital in what is such a competitive landscape. It's therefore essential for us that we have a digital partner that can provide strategic advice and practical support to ensure we stay ahead of the competition. Sellick Partnership have worked with I-COM for over nine years now, which is testament to the relationship that we have with them and the exceptional results that have been enjoyed along the way. The skill, experience and expertise of I-COM, perfectly complements that of our in-house team, making it the ideal partnership for achieving results.

I-COM has been truly instrumental in bringing SafetyBuyer online as well as establishing us as a key player within our industry. We operate within a highly competitive market and although I had every faith I-COM’s paid search expertise, I would not have envisioned achieving such consistent success throughout the last few years. I-COM’s activities are at the core of all our digital marketing activity and we see the team as a digital extension of our business. SafetyBuyer would not be the successful brand it is without I-COM’s support.
Before we signed up to work with I-COM I was invited to a meeting with members of the I-COM team, from content to paid search and organic. I was really impressed with the different ideas the different team members were coming up with and the level of creativity and ability they showed. That made me sure that I-COM was the agency we wanted to work with.
In the first year of working with I-COM our new inquiries in my department increased by approximately 20%. That’s the key improvement that we want and so we’re very pleased indeed. The I-COM team are great to work with, we have our own Project Manager who looks after us and it’s been a real pleasure to work with them.
