Power Gym Fitness is a specialist provider of fitness and gym equipment to gyms and health centres throughout the UK offering products that offer excellent quality, reliability and functionality.


We require a new e-commerce website that will allow us to better organise and sell our product range online. We’ve been trading online for a number of years now but our current website is designed to handle a limited product range and is no longer sufficient for our requirements. The current website was developed in 2016 and in the last two years we have grown significantly. We are targeting high-value orders and as such our website needs to suitably impress any potential customers who visit it. In addition to demonstrating aesthetic and technical excellence the website will have to deliver the following:

– Effectively display our expanded product range
– Allow for unlimited product capacity
– Allow for online payment transactions
– Synchronisation between the e-commerce system and our inventory/account systems
– Be optimised for SEO for related product keywords
– Act as the central hub for all of our digital marketing and social media promotion

We also require guidance on how to optimise the website to achieve excellent search engine rankings. This will involve what type of content we should be producing on an ongoing basis and how we can build links to the site etc. This will need to take the form of a written strategy that our team can use on an internal basis.

Deliverable Timescale

We need the website as soon as possible, ideally by early September 2018.

Indicative Budget £15k+
