5. Newsletter Integration

We seamlessly integrated newsletter functionality to facilitate customer engagement and nurture long-term relationships. Also, we implemented a 10% discount for the first order feature encouraging sign-up by the users. This enabled Orso to grow its mailing list and execute targeted email marketing campaigns to drive sales and promote brand awareness.

Recognizing the importance of a streamlined return process in building trust and confidence among customers, we implemented a robust return management (RMA) system. This system provided customers with a hassle-free returns experience, enhancing satisfaction and loyalty.

7. Social Responsibility Highlighting

Orso is a socially responsible brand. Throughout the website, we strategically highlighted Orso’s commitment to social responsibility and sustainability. From showcasing their use of recycled materials to highlighting partnerships with eco-conscious organizations, we emphasized Orso’s dedication to making a positive impact on both the environment and society.

8. Instagram Integration

Today, social media is an integral part of any brand and Orso uses Instagram to engage users on social media platforms. We seamlessly integrated Orso’s Instagram feed into the website, allowing dynamic and engaging content to be showcased directly on the platform. This integration helped to further enhance brand visibility, foster community engagement, and drive traffic to the website from social media channels.
