DEARBORN, Mich., August 7, 2012 – ChannelNet, a leader in multichannel website solutions for the home improvement industry, has launched a series of highly customizable creative website options for Hunter Douglas Canada retailers.
Retailers now have a variety of website colors, background images, overlay choices and unique patterns. The new “look and feel” themes provide Hunter Douglas retailers with options that allow them to differentiate their business online, as well as a simple way to keep their virtual online store current with the latest trends.
“We’re excited about offering our Hunter Douglas Canada clients more flexible and creative ways to display their product lines on their local retailer website,” says Paula Tompkins, ChannelNet CEO and Founder. “We know customers today research window fashion products online before going in-store. It is essential for today’s small business owners to have a professional and up-to-date website. ChannelNet provides Hunter Douglas retailers with such a program—packaged as a turnkey digital marketing program to help drive more customers in-store to complete their purchase.”
In addition to variable design choices, retailers also receive help desk support to keep their sites current so they attract customers through search, social media, mobile and other techniques. ChannelNet’s eBusiness Support Center (eBSC) conducts monthly calls with retailers to provide training, search optimization, website reporting, creative and other support services. Retailers can update their own microsite via a user-friendly administration tool or ChannelNet’s eBSC will make updates for them at no additional cost.
“ChannelNet makes website management simple and hassle-free for us,” notes Anita Haigh, owner of Blinds By Anita in Brandon Manitoba. “We already have the ability to localize our websites with our own photos, content and promotions. The new creative options give us even more flexibility than before. We are really pleased that Hunter Douglas and ChannelNet continue to enhance the program and support us in this critical online medium.”
