Build meaningful customer relationships

We believe that your entire website is a touchpoint for building customer relationships. With a tailored WordPress overlay, you can create meaningful moments and interactions beyond the checkout process. Share staff picks, promote in-store events, or tell your store’s story – all these elements contribute to a personalized experience that fosters customer loyalty.

Create rich immersive experiences for your customers

Many bookstore websites aren’t equipped to compete on customer experience – a key differentiator online. This gives the edge to brands with an immersive online experience.

Readers that shop at local bookstores are willing to pay a premium for brands with a purpose. Convert physical experiences into virtual ones, promote in store events, and build beautiful booklists.

Capitalise on the eCommerce revolution

In recent years, we’ve witnessed an unprecedented surge in eCommerce sales, with factors like the global pandemic providing a significant boost. This dramatic shift towards online shopping has underscored the importance of having a strong and appealing online presence. Now more than ever, bookstores need to ensure they’re not left behind in this digital transformation. By enhancing your online presence, you can capitalize on this eCommerce growth and secure your bookstore’s place in the digital landscape.

Enhance your Circle POS system – don't ditch it

Our solution doesn’t require you to change your current Circle POS system. By integrating a WordPress overlay, we create a seamless experience that matches the look and feel of your existing site. This enhances your site’s functionality, leading to an increase in time spent on site, pages per session, up/cross-sells, basket size, and sales.

Provide a consistent experience across all devices

In this era of ever-expanding digital consumption, it’s vital to provide a consistent experience across all devices – from desktop to tablet to mobile. As the distinction between in-store and online shopping continues to blur, ensure that your customers enjoy a convenient and enjoyable shopping experience wherever they are.

“We had been talking about overhauling our website for years. Always wanting a level of customisation that wasn’t available with our previous site. We couldn’t recommend Jin & Co. highly enough for other bookstores looking for a more personal presence online.”

Leesa Lambert / The Little Bookroom

Owner of The Little Bookroom

“Cannot give a higher recommendation to Jin And Co – it’s a consensus shared by many of my peers. Most recently the landing page he designed for the ABIA Awards (which were moved online due to COVID-19), was a crucial part of us being able to execute it and bring a lot of joy to our community in such uncertain times. I can’t wait to see what he makes for us next.”

It’s been such an incredible experience to work with Jin on creating the website of my dreams. He was endlessly patient with all of my questions and requests, and was so thorough and responsive with his communication the entire way along. He went over and above to make sure I was happy with every single detail of the finished product — I cannot recommend him enough!

Lynette Noni

“Jin was quick to respond, open to suggestions and overall lovely to work with. The website he’s created for us is functional and beautiful, and all the more better to know that he is always on hand to help if any problems arise. Thanks Jin!”
