Banana Fingers


Bespoke microsites created and promoted in 5 languages.

Based in Herefordshire, the BananaFingers climbing store has everything a serious climber needs. A successful eCommerce venture mirrors the stock and service provided in the bricks and mortar shop.

With the help of Web-Translations’ skilled project managers and SEO team, BananaFingers launched new microsites in Swedish, Japanese, Italian, French and German.

Acting as portals to their English e-commerce site, the localised pages will target visitors in foreign markets looking to purchase climbing equipment.

BananaFingers opted for Web-Translations’ microsite service as an opportunity to test different markets, and thanks to our helpful follow-up reports, they are able to track numbers and locales of visitors. The service helped to determine the most profitable international markets for BananaFingers so that when they decide to expand into new markets, they do this with an understanding of the demand for their products.
