01

Website Design

When your audience visits your website, it gives them their first impression of your business. They will judge your business within seconds. In these first few seconds, you want to make a positive impact on your audience. The impression you make on them can either get them to remain on your page and learn about your business or leave your page and turn to a competitor. A good website adds to your credibility and helps you keep your leads on your page.

We’re proud to have helped many clients build a solid online brand!

02

Ecommerce

From startups to small businesses right through to huge brands, there are a huge number of companies that can benefit from their own ecommerce website, where they can sell their own products or services. In todays competitive and convenience focused society, no longer do consumers want to venture to the shops in order to buy items, instead consumers want to shop from their own homes, making ecommerce a flexible solution for both businesses and buyers.

At Genius Series we love creating new opportunities for our clients through building their online stores.

How secure is Genius E - Commerce?

ensure the security of your data — and your customers’ data.
We start with a direct, secure, encrypted (256-bit) connection directly from your customers to your payment
gateway. Customer payment information is tokenized — a fancy term that means that at no time does any
customer payment data ever touch our servers. We never store it, and we never see it.

customers, is protected by multiple firewalls and Cloudways security. On top of that, there is no central Genius E
– Commerce database to hack. Every Genius E – Commerce user account has its own, isolated database. That
means it’s practically impossible for anyone to breach Genius E – Commerce and run off with “everyone’s data”.
Finally, Genius E – Commerce is extremely reliable too! Today’s internet-driven businesses run 24/7/365. Any
downtime is lost money. So we’ve gone the extra mile to ensure the reliability of Genius E – Commerce for your
business. Genius E – Commerce’s digital infrastructure runs on the best — top-tier storage, hosting and delivery
providers including Cloudways, Google, and Vimeo. This is your assurance that Genius E – Commerce will be
there for you, day in and day out.

How is your pricing so good?

That’s the million-dollar question, isn’t it?
Maybe what we really should be asking is, “Why does other eCommerce software cost so much?”
Because truly, in this day and age, there is no sane reason for you to have to pay hundreds or even thousands
of dollars a month on multiple apps to get the minimum necessary functionality you need to run your online
training business.
Nor should you have to spend the time to research hundreds of apps to find the right combination for your
business, learn how to use each app, and spend money on programmers to integrate them so they can share
data. Again, in this day and age, that’s just insanity.
After struggling ourselves for over 10 years (2001 – 2010) to try and find a viable solution for our business (and
clients) and coming up empty, we decided to do something about this.

Do I need coding skills?

Genius E – Commerce simple drag-and-drop interface and menu wizards lets you do everything without any code
whatsoever — from designing and configuring your training courses and assessments; to uploading your products
and taking payments.

Genius E – Commerce makes it even easier for you with its wide variety of gorgeous, pre-designed “drag and
drop” course builder templates, getting you going in record time. (All built with your users in mind to help increase
user engagement and experience – UX / UI – from the get go!)

pages etc just a few hours – not days or months! No code required!

Does Genius E - Commerce integrate with other platforms and services?

Absolutely! “Open API” allows you to connect your new E – Commerce website with other platforms that you
currently use or would like to use in the future.
