The 2019 Magento Imagine Excellence award finalists have been announced and we’re thrilled to be finalists in not one, but TWO categories!

We’re finalists in the Best Magento Upgrade category for our work on the new Tile Giant website and the B2C Growth Award category for our work with the British Heart Foundation.

What are the Magento Imagine Excellence awards?

The Magento Imagine Excellence awards are an annual event hosted by Magento. These highly sought after awards celebrate the exceptional creativity, innovation and success of Magento merchants and partners across the world.

This year’s event will be held in Las Vegas in May and Nick, Neil, Hedds and Pembo will be heading stateside to represent team iWeb. Aside from the celebrations on the night, there will also be a keynote speech by Gary Vaynerchuk.

Gary Vaynerchuk 101

Gary Vaynerchuck is chairman of VaynerX (a modern day media and communications agency) and also active CEO of VaynerMedia (a full-service advertising agency). Gary is a prolific angel investor with early investments in companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Venmo and Uber. All of this combined with the fact that he is a 5 time New York Times bestselling author, host of a top 100 global podcast
‘The GaryVee Audio Experience’ and #AskGaryVee and appearing as a judge in Apple’s ‘Planet of the Apps’ has earned his status of ‘web personality’ in the digital world and highly sought after public speaker.

So, a little more about the awards we are shortlisted for…

Despite a more rigorous submissions process this year and over 250+ entries across 15 categories, we are honoured to be shortlisted for two awards!

B2C Growth Award

The B2C Growth Award recognises the retailer, brand, or branded manufacturer who has experienced the most significant sales growth percentage in the past 12 months via channels powered by Magento Commerce.

We worked with the BHF (the largest charity retailer in the UK and leading independent funder of cardiovascular research) to upgrade their Magento 1 site that had served them well since it was first launched in 2011 to a new Magento 2 site.

This opened the door to more possibilities and functionality for a truly engaging shopping experience. Developing a new solution for their Magento 2 site resulted in a massive 90% increase in online donations!

Best Magento Upgrade

This award recognises the company achieving a high impact upgrade from Magento 1 to Magento 2 and we’re thrilled to be recognised for our work with Tile Giant.

Tile Giant has over 90 stores nationwide and are a leading provider of tiles to the trade and DIY markets, providing thousands of lines to suit all styles and budgets.

When Tile Giant approached us to upgrade their Magento 1 site we provided a brand new Magento 2 solution to help take full advantage of the built-in native features and custom integrations to overhaul their customers’ online experience.

Providing a new design and reimagining the user journey allowed us to drive a 28% increase in revenue and 35% increase in conversion rate.
