Happy New Year From HummingbirdUK

We’d like to thank all of our clients for a wonderful 2014 and are already working towards bringing some more beautifully crafted Magento sites online in 2015!

The last 3 months of 2014 saw us go live with several sites as well as scoring great successes in a number of SEO campaigns we have been working on.

Live Sites

An eccletic mix of sites have gone live over the past few weeks from a lingerie shop to a shop selling vouchers.


Our site for Australian plus-size lingerie company Curvy, is live and looking great. The site is a lovely fluid responsive design which looks great across all devices from Mobile Phones to 40” Desktops. This is the second major project we’ve completed with management team at Curvy and marks the third anniversary of our working relationship with them and we look forward to even more challenges in the future! Have a look for yourselves over at the Curvy website

Half Pint Chic

We took the existing web site of this great children’s fashion retailer and made it responsive. The end result of this conversion has seen a significant increase in mobile conversion rates. We are rather pleased with the end result and so are they!

Love From Indie Street

Just before Christmas Love From Indie Street's site launched, selling vouchers from some of the best independent high street retailers in Edinburgh. We loved working on their site and its awesome illustrations. One of the things that made this site unusual was that all the stock is virtual. The end result is another beautiful HummingbirdUK optimised and responsive Magento site.

Wholesale Add-On

Our Wholesale Add-On for Magento sites is proving to be very popular and so far feedback from users of the Wholesale sites has been fantastic, offering as it does a fast easy repeat order process for both customers and retailers alike. If you are considering expanding into wholesale, get in touch and we can talk you through how the Wholesale Add-On from HummingbirdUK works.


Our SEO team are finding their long term optimisation strategies are starting to pay dividends. Changes to Google’s algorithms had resulted in many sites being penalised for breaking their rules. We have been successful optimising client content for a number of clients that has resulted in their natural climb up the search rankings.

We are now offering long term SEO Care Packages where we will monitor your search rankings every month and adjust content to ensure you are ahead of the game. Packages start from as little as £500+VAT per month. For advice on natural or pay per click SEO, get in touch.
