For several years, Countryman was experiencing an increasing amount of challenges and instability with its website, which includes an online store that houses 35,000+ product SKUs for highly configurable audio equipment products. To make matters worse, their website developer disappeared leaving them with a site that would crash when they made any changes to the products or content.
Mode Effect identified one of the primary challenges as the fact that Countryman’s website was running on a website page builder. “The website builder was a beast, slow, crashes browsers and is hard to work with,” said Mike. “We got them off the builder and into something easy to manage. We use a concept called blocks, which allows us to very easily create content and optimize performance.”
The difference in our website uptime, speed, functionality and performance as well as ease of use is night and day. We have received many compliments from our customers and people in our industry on the new website as well,” Chris added.
The changes to Countryman’s website, including the site redesign, product SKU integration and hosting environment migration have resulted in the following positive changes:
Massive improvement in website performance with fast load times and speed as a result of the new theme and site rebuild.
Stable, reliable website that Countryman can easily make changes to on their own without any concerns about creating issues with site stability.
Significant control and autonomy over the site with the ability to manage product pages, marketing page content edits and more.
A modern new site design that their customers and industry partners compliment and enjoy interacting with.

One of the first things Mode Effect did was ask Tyson for a wish list of things to fix and resolve that Tyson had not been able to get resolved with his current vendor. One of the big items on the list had to do with the company’s vendor reporting system.
Another issue that Mode Effect was able to help The Red Headed Hostess address was speed and performance on its WooCommerce site.
“I thought out site was performing pretty well regarding speed,” said Tyson. “But I noticed a big difference when we went to management and hosting with Mode Effect.”

Services offered: WooCommerce development, Website hosting, & e-mail automation
Choq.com launched in 2019, using a WooCommerce website built with some freelancers and some DIY methods and launched on a traditional shared website host. They certainly didn’t expect things to pick up as fast as they did!
After switching hosts as a stop-gap, the site experienced two consecutive Black Friday crashes caused by an overload of site visitors. A second challenge was to boost the site’s sluggish performance for mobile customers, who make up 70-80% of site visitors and purchases.
It became apparent that seeking freelancers and general web development companies to help with higher-volume e-commerce sites wasn’t getting them the support they needed. So they went searching for a company who are experts in WooCommerce to help them.
