How to Improve Product Search on Shopify with Variants and Meta Fields

One of our clients, windfalllumber.com, has dozens of variants of products which differ mainly in color only. They wanted to improve the search ability on their site so that when a visitor searches for a particular color, all relevant results are returned. Also, the client wanted the search results to display individual variants, not simply their parent product, which is the typical Shopify search result.

For more than half a year, I’ve worked directly with Andrew at Btown. Hands-down, Andrew has been an invaluable asset for our company. He’s extremely knowledgeable, work is top grade, and the turn-around is amazing. I would highly recommend Btown for UX and back-end work in Shopify.

BTownWeb’s strongest suit is that they are small, nimble, and agile. They are willing to work with you to develop the right solution for your business. They were very responsive from start to finish, even when a lot of hand-holding was necessary. They took responsibility for their work all the way through the end and was always available to solve issues.
I would definitely work with them again.

From the initial conversations to the final decision BTown Web was a cut above. They were low pressure, flexible and capable – a combination we find rare and enjoyable in a business relationship. They were also completely transparent both in their capabilities and in their input on our requests which always let us know exactly where things stood. It was just as you want a consultant experience to be, consistent, confident, capable and flexible.

In the end, they helped us get the site we wanted, and helped our team without reservation which is refreshing in an age where some want to keep the “magic” of web design to themselves.

The more I use SS the happier I am. Love the ease of sales reports info at my fingertips. I’ve never had that before. Plus today I had a order from Europe and the customs form was complete populated with the order content. Yay! I’ve been needing this in my life so very much but didn’t know it.
I also had some time to brows your articles on FB. Your passion for what you do is contagious and that’s such a compelling quality in a business owner. I feel really lucky that I opened your email that got me on board. I look forward to exploring my little micro businesses potential over time. I had no idea so much great stuff was out there in a non threatening accessible format, i.e. Shipstation and Mailchimp.

I called Chad with Btownweb.com when my other website designer skipped town and left me in a lurch. He and his staff were able to attend to the damages after hours and I was up and running that night.
