Trust powered by BigCommerce
With the platform’s ease of use, native functionality and BigCommerce’s support team just a chat away — Keneshia was able to build Baddie Labs’ website in just one month.
“In the first stages, developing the website, having your own URL, having a secure URL with the ‘s’ at the end — those were all extremely important things to not only gain recognition, but also gain trust. Because here you are, a brand new website with no reviews, and people have to trust you. So, I feel like being powered by BigCommerce was extremely helpful,” said Berkley.
When compared to Shopify, BigCommerce initially stood out for its eye-catching design and user experience capabilities. With the tools provided by BigCommerce, Keneshia felt confident in being able to build a beautiful site, just the way she wanted it.
“I felt a stronger pull to BigCommerce,” said Berkley. “I saw a lot of Shopify platforms, and I just didn't feel like they were as interactive or as beautiful. When you go on my site — even though I created it myself — you really feel like you're on a site that houses cosmetic products. When you compare my site to those of bigger brands, I have the same vibe and feel.”
BigCommerce’s ability to scale with the company was another important factor in Baddie Labs’ decision to launch on the platform. BigCommerce provided the necessary functionality to get started, while offering the ability to add additional channels, more robust analytics and third-party applications as the business grew.
