As
a new daily deals startup, Delicious Karma worked with Rocket Web to
build out a fully scalable commerce initiative on Magento Enterprise to
support the company’s rapid growth. Rocket Web capitalized on the
private sale functionality built into Magento Enterprise to launch a
public beta six months ago engaging over 5,000 active users with an
average order size of $70.

Michelle Ritchie, chief marketing officer and founder of Delicious Karma
noted the potential that Rocket Web was able to realize, “Magento
Enterprise has enabled us to build something not previously possible: a
network of deeply engaged food lovers that want to discover, learn and
share their passions for delicious, real food.” For more about Rocket

In addition to creative and visually appealing work, this year’s awards
focused on rewarding innovative HTML 5 implementations, responsive web
design, exceptional utilization of Magento’s inherent features and
integration with third party technologies from the diverse
6,000-extension strong Magento Connect marketplace. Most importantly,
the winning submission delivered above and beyond initial merchant
requirements by producing a site that exceeded business goals including
revenue, conversion rate, site traffic, average order volume, and
customer loyalty.

Additional 2013 award finalists included:

Pod1 for Erno Laszlo: www.ernolaszlo.com
Erno
Laszlo, originally a dermatologist brand to the Hollywood stars of the
50’s, approached Pod 1 to create an online storefront that would serve
as the central hub for the brand and today’s consumers featuring an
entire range of products in a luxury environment. Pod1 was able to drive
an increase in new visitors by 50% using a custom HTML integration.
Clients agreed with ecommerce manager Katrina Seitz noting, “The
ErnoLaszlo.com that launched last June succeeds in conveying the luxury,
efficacy and authority of the brand, as well as offering the kind of
personalized experience our clients have at the counter or in our
skincare institute.” For more about Pod1 click here: http://www.pod1.com/
