Designing A New Website
Designing a new website was probably one of the earliest challenges that we came across while working with MyGug. The client mentioned all their requirements for a new website design before we started working on it. Some of the major issues that we came across during the execution phase are listed below:
Designing a website based on the client’s requirements.
Maintaining the same level of enthusiasm among all the team members during the development stages.
Providing constant updates to the client for feedback, thus reducing the possibility of mishaps.
Developing eCommerce Shop
The client wanted to develop an eCommerce section on their website to offer products. The main problem was that the website was not meant for eCommerce, as it lacked the majority of the features and functionalities required by most eCommerce websites.
Developing an eCommerce section was one of the most memorable challenges we faced while working with MyGug. Some of the main problems we had to face were:
Manage customer and user data, which includes login details, usernames, passwords, and many more.

Designing A Custom Page for Product Details
After developing the eCommerce section of the website, our next challenge was to design a custom page for product details. The client wanted to provide the details of their products to make their customers more knowledgeable and informed.

Developing A Custom Shipping Rate
Developing a custom shipping rate was another major challenge we faced while working with MyGug. After working on the eCommerce shop section and adding product details, developing the custom shipping rate was the final step to complete the entire process.
The client wanted to develop a functionality where they would provide a custom shipping rate based on the customer’s location. The primary reason behind such functionality was that the company allows International shipping. They only provide free shipping in Ireland. So, outside Ireland, there would be a lot of factors that could determine the actual shipping rate.
Another problem that we faced was understanding digital trends. The team knew the importance of digital trends as they helped strategize marketing campaigns. Our team had to consider numerous factors, like understanding the new algorithms, government regulations, and new competition in the market. Another challenge that we faced was determining PPC (pay-per-click) for the Google ads.

Custom Shipping Rate Development

Communicate with the client to know how they want to calculate their shipping charge.
For custom shipping charges, develop a functionality where customers could have enquiries via email.
The website admin should handle these emails to answer all customer enquiries.
To overcome the challenges related to PPC (Pay-Per-Click), we decided to increase the overall budget for digital marketing. In addition, the team members also decided to understand keyword match types and add negative keywords to overcome issues like using too many keywords.
