Performance Geek – New WooCommerce Shop

Performance Geek - Get Onnit in Canada from PerformanceGeek.caIt’s pretty straight forward; I love WordPress and I love WooCommerce. So when a good friend and I decided to launch an online shop filled with performance supplements and gear, the obvious choice of software was WooCommerce.

The WooThemes team has been diligently plugging away for a couple of years now and the end result is stellar. It’s stable, it’s extensible, it’s user friendly and most importantly it lets us focus on retailing our products without any undue hassle or hardships.

PerformanceGeek.ca was launched well over a year ago and has been trucking along nicely; it’s based on the WooTheme’s On Topic theme with quite a bit of customization and straightforward WooCommerce integration. Retailing performance aids and athletic gear isn’t my primary career, so having a site built on software that lets me tend to customer orders quickly and efficiently is an absolute must.

One of the most interesting facets of this site is it’s ‘sidebar masthead’ which allows us to change out the background photo on a monthly basis. We do our best to use this space to feature our customers performing whatever sporting, athletic or fitness act it is they like to do most often. We had the idea for this rotating, user-submitted image early on and horizontal banners/header and mastheads didn’t do it justice. The vertical masthead to the left of the page was the key element that the rest of the site was built around.

Pop over to PerformanceGeek.ca and have a poke around – we’ve even got some stuff over there for web developers.
