Client Profile: Eazyl
Who Are Eazyl?
Eazyl is a first of its kind. The brain child of John Sewell, Eazyl is an online Art broker that connects sellers with buyers and charge 0% sales commissions.
Eazyl combines eCommerce with social networking. Allowing members to sign up to monthly accounts, list their art for sale under the relevant categories and then allow the public to buy, securely, through the website.
After meeting with John to discuss the exact requirements we fine tuned the buying process by adding in an Escrow stage to ensure both buyer and seller are happy with their transaction. Adding in Escrow gives an extra layer of protection to both parties as well as John as money is held safely until both parties mutually agree the release of the money – This also helps prevent fraudulent transactions. Adding in a social network element is what really brings this website to life. Not only can buyers view the wide range of beautiful artwork, but they can also favourite art work and contact the artist directly to ask questions about the pieces of art work before purchasing.
Having a community helps build trust amongst both sellers and buyers which in turn will help increase the number of transactions through the website.
When we decided to redo our website, we called quite a number of web designers and were provided with numerous addresses of sites created by each designer. We found that ALT Web Design had the most sites that we thought were innovative, creative and professional. After speaking a few times with ALT Agency we decided to go with them. It’s the best decision we’ve made in quite some time.
ALT Agency not only gave freely of their time to talk with me long distance, they had the patience to teach me as we went along. They came up with various ideas that allowed me to choose what I liked best and with their guidance we got exactly the website we dreamed about. The hits to our site have substantially increased and so have the many compliments we receive daily. People have told us that our site is attractive, informational and friendly as well as professionally done.
