I am graduate in commerce and a post graduated in computer applications.
I am in the web development field from last 8 years. I started my career as Junior PHP developer in 2010 since then I have worked on more than 200 websites which are mostly online stores. I had promoted as Senior developer and then as a Team leader. I have also done the Oracle-DBA certification in 2008 which helps me always in optimizing large databases for large size online stores.
Over last 8 years, I have helped various clients in deciding proper eCommerce system for their business. There are lots of businessmen who don’t know what type of online stores would be needed for their business. I helped them in deciding suitable eCommerce system for their business. There are lots of open source or paid platforms to create online stores like magento, shopify, woocommerce, prestashop, cscart, xcart, odoo etc. Each has their own features which are suitable for certain type of business. I have a deep understanding of these platforms.
I have worked on cakephp, codeigniter frameworks as well since there are certain business which needs customized solutions and it is better to create such custom systems from scratch like an online contractor booking, tiffine booking etc.
I integrated various accounting and ERP systems with online stores like quickbooks, POS, bar-code inventory management etc.
I have also integrated third-party APIs to manage inventory or drop-shipping orders etc.
I helped various clients in integrating their stores with online marketplaces like Amazon, Ebay, Google Shopping etc. to boost their sales. I have also experience of product scrapping using Amazon Associate Products API which can be used to scrape product information from Amazon.
Marketing campaigns are the important part of each business. I am capable to setting up google analytics, adwords, facebook pixels to create shopping campaigns and setup their tracking for an online store to increase their sales and helps store owner to analyze the statistics to create future marketing plans.
Email marketing is an important part for ecommerce systems now. I integrate online stores with mailchimp, aweber etc. to add/manage website’s subscribers and send marketing emails to these lists.
Catalog management is a very tedious task specially if there is a very large catalog. I help my client to manage large catalogs by adding/updating products with CSV files. Since modifying each single product is very difficult if we have products in thousands. CSVs files are very helpful to manage product data in a quick way and they are easy to manage. Direct import/export of these files is the efficient way to manage large catalogs. I have experience of using CSV files to manage catalog in magento using magmi, shopify using metafield apps, opencart or other cart systems.
Online store page load speed directly affects the sales and retention of customer. I follow coding standards of each shopping carts to make faster online stores by compressing images, css files, minifying js files, using less or CDN systems to increase the page speed of websites.
I have also knowledge of linux server administrations. I have experience in managing dedicated servers as well to install new software, setup multiple domains, backup and restore websites and their databases etc.
When I am not at work, I usually spend my time with my family. I spend weekends with my kids and do some stuff with cooking. I like mountains and in my vacations I mostly visit hill stations.
