The Burren Perfumery

The team at Milk Bottle Labs did an excellent job of moving our e-commerce presence to Shopify. The project ran smoothly and to schedule, with minimal intervention from our side. We were consulted only as and when necessary, and the team worked to specification to deliver an excellent result. Issues raised in testing were addressed quickly and efficiently. We were extremely pleased with the result and their service.

OUI CHEF

I cannot overstate how helpful Milk Bottle Labs have been in the relaunch of our website. Our choice was between going it alone or bringing them onboard to work alongside us as advisors during the process. Even if you know what you want from your website, it saves you so much time and hassle to have an expert on-hand to keep you on the right track.

Even as somebody who is fairly tech-savvy and computer literate, there were so many settings that needed adjusting that I would just never have known about without their input. They also have so many sales-boosting tips & tricks and so much experience and knowledge of what works best, that you couldn't possibly replicate it on your own. Sure, you could knock up a someway-decent Shopify store yourself but we were ready to take ours to the next level. We wanted a polished, professional store that created the right impression for our discerning customers and we achieved that quickly, enjoyably and painlessly with Milk Bottle Labs. It genuinely was a fun experience!

They also will give you a choice between a select few of the most suitable themes and best apps for each piece of functionality rather than aimlessly spending an age trawling the theme/app stores yourself only to discover the app you've set up is missing a key piece of functionality or doesn't play well with your theme.

In summary, these guys are great to work with - you will save yourself headaches and money in the long-run and you will be delighted with the results. I'm happy to have a chat with anyone who wants more information. Get in touch through our site.

The Lovely Little Label

I knew about Milk Bottle Labs from attending the regular meetups they host here in Dublin, so before even starting I already knew the guys were going to be the right fit for me.

I had a shopify store already that I had built myself and had outgrown & I needed an upgrade. There was no heavy sales pitch, the process was completely transparent and the team were enthusiastic about sharing their Shopify knowledge & best practices from the get go.

I had a very specific look and feel in mind for the website, so the team gave me a theme to play with and break until I was happy with it, that way i could test out the different aesthetics and choose based on what actually looked good. I had no down time on my store and couldn't be happier with the results.

I look forward to working with Milk Bottle Labs again in the future. Thanks guys.

Vallerret Photography Gloves

Don't think I've ever worked with external partners with such dedication to my project (migrating from WooCommerce to Shopify). Pretty much daily updates and very flexible to meet my needs. Highly recommend!

GIY

We worked with Milk Bottle Labs over the last 4 months to develop a brand new shopify store to replace our old online store and for a new product range we've developed called GROWBox.

We can't recommend the team at Milk Bottle Labs highly enough. Designing and creating the platform is one thing (which they did, brilliantly), but they added value for us by helping us to understand online selling more thoroughly. We're more confident now about how to drive traffic to the site, where it's coming from and how to increase our conversion rate. As any successful online retailer will know - the platform is only one part of equation. Knowing how to get the most from it is equally important. Milk Bottle Labs - with their deep knowledge of the shopify platform - were the ideal partner in that respect.

At design stage they listened carefully to what we needed the shop to do, and how we wanted it to look and then cracked on with delivering it for us. They helped steer us back on course a few times when we needed it! We had a very tight and strict deadline to coincide with the launch of our new TV Series and the platform was delivered on time and to budget, with no messing around. Milk Bottle Labs went above and beyond for us in a way that no other IT company we've worked with have in the past. The attention to detail and quality of work was outstanding. They were 'available' to us in every sense of the word. We had an overall feeling that they were deeply committed to delivering an outstanding project for us.

Bottom line? Milk Bottle Labs have put together a best-in-class website that looks great and with a template that easily allows us to add products, change pages, move content around. It's a powerful tool. We've a platform in place now that can drive serious revenue to our social enterprise in the years ahead. Above all they've armed us with the knowledge and passion for online selling that we need to succeed and we know we've a partner ready to support us.

Liwu Jewellery

Peter and the team at Milk Bottle Labs were great to work with on the recent migration of my site to Shopify! Milk Bottle Labs anticipated Liwu's needs from the beginning and set about the migration in a planned, orderly and timed fashion. Communication was excellent and I was kept up to speed on progress regularly. Milk Bottle Labs also listened to my feedback during the migration and I am happy to report we worked well together to achieve a site that I am now very proud of (and I hope everyone in Milk Bottle Labs are too). Overall, they took all the hassle out of creating a new website and were an absolute pleasure to work with! Many thanks to all the team and look forward to working together again. Áine

Anna Fashion + Lifestyle

Working with the Milk Bottle labs on the design of a new website was great. I was working with Peter via emails and Skype calls as I am based in Sligo. The communication was excellent during the process of developing the website. Peter took the time to really understand our requirements and offer suggestions and ways to incorporate the elements and features that I wanted our website to offer. The website was completed within the agreed timelines and to a very high standard. I'd would definitely recommend the Milk Bottle Labs to anyone looking to develop a website using Shopify.

Basketball Ireland

We couldn’t be happier with the help and support provided by the Milk Bottle Labs team as we moved our shop on to the Shopify system. We had very little ecommerce experience and Milk Bottle Labs were able to guide us through the whole process from build to launch. We had ideas that we wanted to consider thoughout and the team listened and gave us invaluable feedback based on their extensive experience. Since launching we have exceeded our own expectations and that is in large part to having such a strong team in our corner. If you’re looking to create a great Shopify experience don’t hesitate in contacting the Milk Bottle Labs team you will be glad you did.

Nimble Fingers

Having a new website designed and built as envisioned was not the easiest of tasks but working with someone as knowledgeable and proficient as Keith made the whole process so much easier.

Top class advice and recommendations throughout the process lead to an end result which we are extremely happy with.

I have been recommending Milk Bottle Labs to anyone looking for any website related work since. By choosing them you'll be in good hands!

BOLD BUNNY

We worked closely with Keith from Milk Bottle Labs to attain a list of achievable goals, all of which were met or tweaked along the way to produce a site that functions far better than it's predecessor, at all stages MBL were helpful, insightful and responsive to questions that came up during the project. Could not recommend them highly enough.

Angler's Choice

The experience of working with the Team at Milk Bottle Labs was exceptionally good.
Right from the off the knowledge of Shopify and general e-commerce this company has was evident, and I always felt they were as engage with the build as me.
The journey to get my store on line was a hard one due to many difficult personal issues, but the guys stuck by me and were as anxious as me to get the store live.
I am blown away by the result, I now have a beautiful fully functioning store which has exceed all my expectations. As a small business owner, it is so reassuring to have the team available at the end of the phone or email, to sort out any issues. The world of e-commerce is a daunting place for a beginner, but Milk Bottle Labs made it very easy for me.
Initially when I looked at going on line the thought of hiring an expert seem total unreachable for me, as like all small business the budget was very tight, however Milk Bottle Labs provide exceptional good value for money, and with fair and reasonable staged payments it is a lot more achievable than you might thing.
If you are thing of trading on line you would be crazy not to talk to Milk Bottle Labs today.
Thank you, Milk Bottle it was an absolute pleasure working with you all and I will definitely be doing so again in the future.

Hanna Hats

At the start of this project I was overwhelmed, but Milk bottle took that extra steep and walked me through the different stages during this project. I soon came to realise I was working with a highly skilled team which in turn allowed me to enjoy the process. Milk bottles recommendations which we have put into place have helped our customers overall experience and in turn increased our sales. I am very happy with the end results and would highly recommend working with the Milk bottle team.

Wonderful experience. The team at Milk Bottle Labs were fantastic. Just wish I had contacted them earlier. Very professional. Their depth of Shopify knowledge, willingness to go outside the scope is their jewel in the crown. Delighted with the end result. Before you go anywhere, talk to these guys. It's worth it in the long run.

The Point of Sale Store

We were looking for a fresh clean look for our new online store and couldn't be happier with what we got. The team at Milk Bottle Labs have been amazing from even before we agreed to ask them to build our new store. They simply CARE about our business and want us to be successful so take great time to understand what's important for us and then put it into action. I'd recommend them highly, they delivered way past what they committed to and are still there for us post-launch to help with follow-on questions. Big shoutout to David who gave us great help with our Social Media and SEO!

Gym+Coffee

We were thrilled with Milk Bottle Labs and the service they provided us. Keith was excellent to deal with. They listened exactly to what was important to us and understood what we wanted to create on our site.

Work was speedily completed within the agreed timelines and to a very high quality. Again Keith was always available to meet us, take our calls and talk us through everything at every step.

We would highly recommend Milk Bottle Labs.

Schoolbooks.ie

I can't speak highly enough of Keith, Peter and the team at Milk Bottle Labs. Our experience of working with them in re-platforming the Schoolbooks.ie website has been fantastic.

From day one Keith understood what we were looking to accomplish and the timeframe we had to work to. Over the months since, MBL has continuously over-delivered in their work. We are delighted with the end result, and furthermore to be told by our Shopify Success Manager that Schoolbooks.ie was the leading Shopify Plus store in Europe in July 2017 - its very first month operating on the Shopify platform!

I would have no hesitation in recommending MBL to anyone considering availing of their service. First class service.

Paul McCann, Director, Schoolbooks.ie

Home Square

Peter and the team have been a dream to work with. They really understood our need of transparency between our retail stores and our online store. They provide us with all the necessary tools to get us started on the Ecommerce platform. They made our work hassle and stress free. We highly recommend Mike Bottle Labs to anyone that thinking of setting up an online store.

My name is Phil Skelly my experience with Milk bottle was excellent. I found the team most helpful in building my site and easy to contact which was most important to me.

The Underwear Boutique

MBL were quick and helpful in advising on store improvements and app suggestions. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to improve their online shop. Good job guy, thank you!

Pixalili

From the outset and even before we engaged MilkBottleLabs Peter gave us invaluable advise on the best way forward with our failing website. Peter turned a complicated and unusable website into a new streamlined version and added custom functionality which our customers now understand how to use. Peter made sure that he fully understood our business and business goals which was refreshing. The whole experience has been a pleasure and I would highly recommend MilkBottleLabs without hesitation.

The Handmade Soap Company

Before deciding on my developer I interviewed a quite a number. I decided fairly early on that Milk Bottle were the right fit for me, Peter was quite confident in his knowledge and in what he could deliver. It turned out to be a fantastic decision on my part. The guys at Milk Bottle really over delivered. Once the project price was agreed the focus was then on making the vision happen. There were no adjustments to the price even though there were adjustments to the spec along the way. I felt that the guys were totally committed to flawlessly executing the brief and that that standard carried all the way through to the far side of the project, particularly impressive was the potentially stressful "going live" period. The service and quality of work was impeccable and I only wish that all third party companies I engage with were as enjoyable to work with as the team at Milk Bottle.

OSAAT

Milk Bottle Labs were a pleasure to deal with at all times.
They have brought my brand to the next level in terms of its CEO, the quality of the design of the website, the funnel for selling products and a huge bonus was their knowledge in how to improve conversion rates for my store with online marketing.
A new website with MBL is just the start of the relationship and i look forward to continuing our work together.

Elivar - Sports Nutrition

We'd been successfully selling online at Elivar.com for nearly three years using a different platform when we decided we wanted more from our e-commerce platform than was available. While we liked the Shopify platform and had decided to use it over the alternatives, it was Milk Bottle Lab’s commitment to our project that made this such a successful project. They took the time to really understand our requirements and in many cases helped us refine those requirements to achieve an even better outcome.

Our existing Elivar.com customers have been hugely impressed with the easy of purchase compared to our previous site, while we have been able to acquire new customers in increasing numbers through the use of some really impressive apps from the Shopify app store.

We'd happily recommend Milk Bottle Labs to anyone looking to implement a Shopify solution.

purplebox.ie

As an ecommerce retailer our website is multi functional – an information and sales tool and as a funnel for customer visits to the B&M store. It reflects our personality & expertise. It has to be inspirational, educational, fun yet with a serious, sincere message on how we can help people change their lives for the better.

MBL understood this concept from our first meeting. Peter listened to my vision, reviewed my previous text heavy website and made insightful suggestions. Very quickly the design was put together, reviewed and completed to my satisfaction.

Knowledgeable on wider aspects – he advised on possible grant schemes & getting the best from site analysis.

His Shopify expertise is excellent – advising on relevant apps that will help the customer and analysis experience. Adding code, where needed can seem daunting, yet Peter is able to step in and simplify the process, working with SEO in mind to improve Google rankings.

I continue to enjoy my relationship with Peter and a simple call can resolve any questions that may arise. If your thinking of establishing an ecommerce site then Milk Bottle Labs should be your first port of call – money & time very well spent

The Irish Celtic Craft Shop

I was very impressed with Milk Bottle Labs. I would highly recommend using them, I enjoyed the whole experience, I learnt a lot from Peter and feel the job couldn't have been done any better.

They gave me ideas and pointers in other areas related to launching an eCommerce site and felt I got as much help and information as possible from them.

Peter is very easy to work it and makes the whole process very interesting.

WF Aviation

Milk Bottle Labs did a great job explaining and implementing the Shopify platform for my business. No task was too much trouble, and I got a lot more that they quoted for in the finished site. They did a good job with apps, SEO and multi currency options for me. My site was complex with 3000 images of aircraft parts that needed a lot of very accurate content uploaded to the site. The end product is very good and has me on Google Page 1 for a given part number search. I don't regret in any way the move from Joomla which is frankly a thing of the past compared to Shopify. Within a week I had the back end interface figured out and with guidance from Milk Bottle Labs I have the back end and Google Analytics constantly open in my browser to check the no of users on my store and the profile of their demographics. I love the abandoned cart feature, and the ability to see what users are searching for on my store. Great job guys, definitely can recommend you to other store builders. The fact Shopify say my store is outperforming 95% of others launched on the same week says it all.

The Drone Store

10/10 - The team at Milk Bottle Labs (cool name) were super supportive, approachable and professional. After poor prior experiences with web developers, the team at MBL made our latest project a breeze and added heaps of digital marketing and social media marketing advice as part of the build. They built us an entire business in less than a month. Wow !! We highly recommend Milk Bottle Labs and will use their services again.

Diamond Furniture

We were delighted with the outstanding service that Keith and his team provided us. They worked closely with us to achieve a seamless and fluid e-commerce experience for our customers. Keith was all hands on deck when it came to support, and he still is even after the project has finished.

Overall 10/10 experience, would definitely recommend.

Farewell Celtic Ashes

Keith was very approachable and always available throughout my entire experience with Milk Bottle Labs. He answered every question I had and was always extremely friendly. He has a good rounded knowledge of Shopify and the general Digi Comms area which is very helpful to a Start up business like mine. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to improve their Shopify website and boost sales.

Studio Dance Wear

Keith has been so professional, never an issue, has been so easy to talk to and he has taken a huge amount of time to understand my needs for my website. It wasn't easy as I have such a wide variety of sizes, styles and colours available. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Keith and Milk Bottle Labs.

Efficient Farm Solutions

We were new to ​e-​commerce and what we thought would have been a stress turned out to be a wonderful experience. Milk Bottle Labs explained everything in detail making our online move so much easier than we had expected. We highly recommend. The team are easily accessible and super responsive.

Chesseire.com

I had started building my own site having a basic knowledge of how it all works, but i was not satisfied with the result i was getting.

I decided to request assistance from a shopify expert and chose Milk Bottle Labs.

The service was great, i got the design i asked for and products etc. were set up correctly. I also had everything set up from terms of service to payment gateways etc.

Apart from the advice, implementation and design i was offered a perfect aftersales service with advice on anything i may not figure out by myself and have always received a prompt reply since putting my store online.

The International Farm Models Store

Highly recommended. Had we known it was going to be so smooth we would have set up our store years ago. We wasted months when we should have hired Keith from day 1. Great communication, excellent support and tuition a long the way. Time lines were reached and after store launch support was super. Not to mention the added digital marketing advice and a wonderful trouble free hand over. We have no hesitation using Keith & Milk Bottle Labs again from start to finish. The International Farm Models Store.

Hi we found Milk Bottle Labs very straightforward, upfront, efficient and no tech jargon, everything was taken care of in a rather short period of time. We have already recommended Milk Bottle Labs to potential webshop client's and will continue to do so.

Water Sense Ireland

Being new to online sales and E commerce it was great working with Milk Bottle Labs and Keith. There was a lot to take on board and its been a whole new learning experience for us here at Water Sense Ireland. From the outset Keith provided a very clear outline of what needed to be done and the time frame required to undertake the work. Everything was completed ahead of time and we are very happy with the way the store has turned out. Keith was a pleasure to work with, totally responsive and always easy to contact. He also provided great input and advise as part of the overall online store development process. Its early days for us selling online, but the store is up and running and fully functional - we are selling and getting paid. Keith's knowledge about setting up all the back office stuff like payment gateways was invaluable. Keith provides an excellent service and we highly recommend him for anybody considering selling online.
