Do you have a Magento migraine?

Does your website fail to appeal to your tribe and so they are being prevented from reading your brand story and learning more about your products. Here at Folk, we've worked with some of the most discerning brands in the world since 2003 and in that time we have demonstrated that we are the perfect blend of a branding, storytelling and a Magento ecommerce agency.

Read some testimonials from some friends of Folk:

"Folk has been the best agency I have worked with at the Pepe Jeans Group to date. We have worked with several Magento partners in the last few years, including some of the most well-known gold partners. Folk's service - from their detailed initial handover through to the confident and expedient execution of our BaU work - has been first class."

“We’ve been incredibly impressed by their performance ... the guys at Folk took a great deal of trouble to really understand everything that we’re about. Easy to work with, easy to communicate with despite us being in Tokyo, New York and Paris. We would wholeheartedly recommend the gentlemen from Folk.”

Patrick Grant | Creative Director

Gieves & Hawkes
“Results to date have been impressive, we were quickly moved on to our hosting service with delivery ahead of schedule. This was due in our critical retail trading period of November and December where we achieve 40% of our online sales ... I would happily recommend Folk to other retailers.”

Andrew Merriman | Director

“Last year’s Cyber Monday’s sale was not a smooth affair - a lack of planning from our agency at the time meant our servers crashed and we lost countless sales. This year we moved to Folk. They took a proper scientific approach to planning a true load test and got the server specifications to cope with our expected traffic levels just right. We took the specced solution to 80% of capacity, so we had room to spare but not so much that we were paying for more than we needed. What’s more, they gave us really clear advice on how to manage the traffic and ensure we kept everything running smoothly.

We hoped to double the previous year’s figures but we ended up beating them by 230%. We definitely felt like Folk were a safe pair of hands throughout the preparation and execution of this year’s flash sale.”

Magento + folk = great success

There has been a great deal written about Magento in recent months following the launch of Magento 2. Here at Folk, we've worked with some of the most discerning brands in the world since 2003 and thought it was time to review why its still the most well-used eCommerce platform:

  1. Magento has a huge community of developers working on the platform on a daily basis. Therefore you can rest assured that your Magento site is up to date, secure & fast.
  2. Magento is and always has been an open source platform. These are the roots of the platform and why it has been such a success.
  3. Magento was built purposefully for eCommerce unlike many of its counterparts. So unlike other platforms that have evolved into eCommerce platforms, Magento has eCommerce in its DNA. 
  4. Magento is highly scaleable, We have built websites for emerging brands through to multi-national organisations
  5. Integrating Magento with a variety of third party services including payment gateways, database applications, shipment tracking and more is quick and easy. 
  6. Easy customisation is at the core of Magento's design. Rather than being focred to use off-the-shelf templates, Magento allows developers to create truly bespoke designs. Consequently, it’s easy to create both a unique and memorable web presence for your business
  7. Magento is capable of very fast page load times with the right optimisations. Speed has improved massively from release to release with Magento 2 now being much faster out of the box.
  8. Magento has successfully incorporated a number of HTML5 capabilities which ensures your website will always be optimised for whichever device your customer is using.

There are many Magento partners in the world, but there's only one Folk. With our unique blend of brand, creativity, marketing, data and retail expertise we are able to see the big picture, to the day to day, to make Magento flagship stores that are as unique and well-designed as our clients' collections.

If you are searching for an agency that has the perfect blend of creative and technical skills, with a strong understanding of making complex magento stores look elegant, simple and beautiful, come say hello.
