The most important measure of an ecommerce site is its sales. If people put items into their shopping cart, go through checkout, and pay, that's a success. If they abandon the cart without buying, something has gone wrong. Not only is that a missed sale, it could be a potential customer who was too frustrated to come back again.
In 2016, we made a conscious effort to grow — both with clients and employees.
Because our development process is focused on prioritization and phases, we require a lot of work managing projects to ensure they start and end successfully.
Last week our team was in Marrakech, Morocco for a company retreat.
Since we're a company with international employees and no office, it makes sense to meet ... well, anywhere, really. We collaborate and communicate every single day, but we don't get a chance to go out to dinner and chat in person as much as some coworkers might.
In 2016, independent research firm Forrester, released a study about how companies use content and commerce. Forrester noted that “working with current legacy CMS or implementing a new CMS were named as two top technology concerns,” for companies.

It’s time to pack the skis (and snowboards, hats, boots, etc.) because we’re heading to the 2017 Outdoor Retailer Winter Show in Salt Lake City!
This will be our second Show but our first winter one. I’m not sure we’ll enjoy a Skratch Labs tofu bowl outside this year, but I’m sure there will be plenty of other delicious food.
In classic end-of-the-year fashion, it’s time to take a look back at 2016.
After an exciting year, I’d like to thank everyone — our clients, our peers, the Drupal community, and the hard workers at Bluespark — for making it so successful. As a digital agency, we’re successful when we produce high caliber work and our clients are happy. And we really truly want our clients to be happy.
2016 has been a year of growth for Bluespark.
We added a number of new positions including CFO, marketing strategist, and Drupal developers, and now, we welcome new VP of Sales Development, Daniel Paul. Daniel brings with him a variety of technology, entertainment, and business experience from large organizations like Apple and Disney to smaller agencies like IMM and Pyxl.
Wouldn’t it be nice if the majority of clients didn’t need to worry about the overall project budget and would just let your team work their development magic and build whatever they need? It would be great, but it certainly isn’t realistic.
