Ascend , a company committed to making cardio and fitness equipment affordable, confronted a steep challenge in an industry dominated by steep pricing and physical store purchases. Our agency stepped in to enhance their digital presence, streamline their customer journey, and create a clear pathway from product discovery to checkout, thus boosting their online sales.

Ascend  navigated a unique landscape - a shift from traditional physical store purchases to online shopping for significant investments like cardio equipment. The primary issue was the fear of customers feeling lost or overwhelmed while making online decisions about high-stakes purchases. To combat this, the website needed to offer clarity, reassurance, and a sense of familiarity as if customers were physically inspecting the products.


Our agency adopted a comprehensive approach, ensuring every part of the customer journey was intuitive, reassuring, and resonated with Ascend's mission. We ensured that the website, product pages, and checkout process were seamless and user-friendly. Our solutions did not stop at the initial launch; we remained committed to continuous improvement and conversion rate optimization (CRO), consistently analyzing customer behavior and data to enhance various website sections and ensure ongoing performance improvement.
