Diving into the Digital Dojo
Founded in 2007 by professional fighters, Combat Corner Professional swiftly established itself as a martial arts equipment powerhouse. Boasting impeccable designs and top-tier materials, the company became the go-to choice for world-class fighters. Recognizing the value of their existing platform on BigCommerce, which was already an ideal fit for their ecommerce needs, Combat Corner realized that their digital presence needed more than just a facelift to match their stature.
Click Here Labs saw an opportunity to flex their multidisciplinary muscles and deliver a knockout performance for Combat Corner. Drawing from their versatile pool of talent, the goal was to augment the Combat Corner website with strategic additions, one of which was incorporating WordPress to facilitate easier content publishing for enhanced search engine optimization (SEO).
Unifying Powerhouses: Atlas and BigCommerce Blueprint
Our objective was clear: transform Combat Corner’s site to maximize performance improvements and grant greater front-end customization, all without disrupting the foundation of the existing storefront.
At the core of the transformation was the combination of WP Engine Atlas and the BigCommerce Blueprint. This choice allowed for a robust ecommerce experience primed for future expansion. Combat Corner’s extensive merchandise catalog was now more effectively showcased, powered by a customized ecommerce platform that didn’t disrupt their established workflow.
The implementation not only introduced flexibility for Combat Corner’s internal teams, but also expedited their content publishing, giving a significant boost to their speed to market.
