AspDotNetStorefront Skins: 6 Questions You Should Ask

Are you looking for a skin for your AspDotNetStorefront site?  Here are 6 key questions to ask to ensure your skin can maximize your online revenue.

  1. Is it responsive?
    With the growth of mobile, if you are re-skinning your site, you should strongly consider a responsive skin.  The good news for AspDotNetStorefront customers is that support for responsive skins has been available since 9.4.1. 
  2. How are the search results styled?
    Are users driven to product pages through product photos and the page layout?  Is it easy for customers to scan the results and decide where they want to go next?
  3. How are users driven towards conversion with site styles?
    Do all of the buttons look the same?  Small changes can drive dramatic conversion rate improvements and increased revenue for your company.  How does the skin you are evaluating guide users towards a conversion?
  4. How easy is it for mobile users to use the search?
    If mobile users want to search your site, is it simple for them to navigate to the search box and type in their text?  Search is frequently used by users as a navigation method.  Make sure your mobile users can easily find it as well.
  5. Have the Smart Mini-Cart and Smart One Page Checkout styles been defined for the skin?
    The Smart mini-cart and Smart One Page Checkout are add-ons that we use on almost every AspDotNetStorefront site we work with.  It is important to have a consistent style for these critical add-on’s.  If this is built into your skin template, it will save you time and money and result in a better experience for your end users.
  6. What browsers has it been tested on?
    Do you know if it has been thoroughly tested on iPad’s, iPhone’s, Android phones, Mac, and PC?  Has it been tested on Safari, Internet Explorer and Firefox?
