Zephyr Books (since 1998)
Comment Designs has been supporting Zephyr Books for over 20 years. When we first began working with Zephyr Books, we simply provided them with a single-page “billboard” style site that directed visitors to their brick and mortar store. As their needs evolved, we provided a perl script based solution to list their inventory online for browsing, updated them to a Joomla-based CMS, and, when they were ready to sell their inventory online and start managing their own content, we provided them with WordPress blog integrated with a Magento catalog. Their Magento-based catalog now contains around five thousand items, and site-based sales continue to grow year-over-year. We continue to provide hosting, inventory management support, SEO, google advertising support, social networking support, and general technical support for Zephyr Books.
