BUT YOU’RE NOT E-COMMERCE!
Hydrofarm Commercial had a very robust integration that was similar to an e-commerce platform, but rather than buying products; commercial growers could add them to a wish list. Due to a number of regulatory requirements, this strategy made sense when the site was launched, but as the commercial side of the business grew, and Hydrofarm developed a commercial team of experts to help advise commercial growers from seed to harvest, the self-serve model no longer made sense.
The homepage of Hydrofarm Commercial Solutions begins with an extensive selection of product categories, paired with visuals, to help the buyer begin their search. The home page also includes a unique layered animation of a commercial grow facility to demonstrate the full range of services provided by The Hydrofarm commercial Team. As the user scrolls, the animation layers shelving, lights, and nutrients into the empty room.
