Journey to faster promotional agility using the ‘Headless’ approach

Adopting a ‘Headless’ approach to your ecommerce platform will offer plenty of opportunities… 

 

The term Headless means different things to different people but in essence, it allows you to be in complete control of the customer facing element of your ecommerce store.  Lots of platform providers profess to be headless but not all of them live up to the claim!

Here are the 3 key benefits:

  1. Multiple Channels and Platforms – with the ever increasing number of points you can sell your product from (mobile, tablet, Amazon, eBay, social media etc), the headless approach will allow you to distribute your content from a single backend much more easily.  You can spend your time on producing great new content as opposed to spending that time ensuring you distribute the same content across multiple touch points.
  2. Flexibility – a lot of developers find a traditional architecture restrictive, but headless removes these restrictions to some extent. It allows you the freedom to use a front end that best suits your business and development teams’ expertise, providing freedom of choice.
  3. Scalability – a headless architecture allows you to keep your frontend and backend separated, enabling you to easily upgrade and customise digital assets without compromising on performance…your system can grow easily as you grow!
