The idea of an ecommerce business that has a good growth prospect in the local market, which at the same time is also giving back to the community, was very alluring to YoKart team, which has strived to bring a change through innovation and out of the box thinking.

Impact

Startup package

To be double sure about the compatibility of Different of Cause business model with YoKart system, the client chose to first go ahead with the basic (Startups) package with an investment of $250.

Go quick Package

After a few weeks, it became clear that YoKart is the right ecommerce platform for Different of Cause. So the client decided to switch to YoKart’s Go-Quick package ($999) so that they can get their store customized and get more exposure from target audience.

The first customization that took place was definitely charity module integration, after which store observed considerable growth in traction that it was receiving. As a result, Different of Cause began to get more recognition; therefore, grow more rapidly.

Result

After customizing their store, Different of Cause gained a 65% increase in customer acquisition rate and 47% increase in revenue.

Outcome

After running their business on the Go Quick package for a couple of months and observing constant business growth during that period, Different of Cause realized that their business now needed a unique image for their store. After consulting with YoKart team, they decided to move up to the Go Custom package ($5999) to get their entire online store designed from the scratch.

Once the deal was finalized, YoKart team began to build Different of Cause website design from the bottom up. Business coordinators, web designers, & UX experts brainstormed and worked together to come up with a website design that clearly depicts the client’s intention behind opening the business, as well as help them grow their business more rapidly.

Result

Operation Efficiency: increased by 60% after website makeover.
