CONNECTING A GLOBAL AUDIENCE

Developing a secure, scalable, multi-lingual and multi-currency ecommerce platform allowed a global audience to explore, browse and transact at the touch of a button.

Problem

Sony PlayStation had a core vision to provide their global audience with a memorable online shopping experience, one that would allow gamers and fans alike to purchase Sony PlayStation merchandise and products through a seamless one-stop-shop.

To meet the demands of the brief the ecommerce website needed to provide a transactional payment gateway that would allow visitors to purchase from all corners of the globe.

Thinking

Our UX teams got to work wireframing the website structure, user journeys and key functional elements our designers and developers would later build. The approach was to design and build a truly engaging ecommerce website, that aligned harmoniously with the rich media interfaces gamers were familiar interacting with.

The development of the platform would be no small task, with full internal API system integrations including CRM, stock control, logistics and inventory management meaning our teams needed to plan and mitigate for every eventuality.

Result

Using a range of tools to monitor site performance, conduct behavioural analyses and optimise accordingly, the site is now reaching 400,000 sessions, as a result of executing organic and paid campaigns, with a strategy of them working in tandem, ensuring PlayStation Gear is positioned in a prime position within the search engines.

PlayStation Gear has grown in organic visibility for a range of brand and product and search queries since launch. Each localised language version is appearing for over 700 core search queries which are driving traffic and more importantly conversions.
