Changing the Face of Natura Health Products
Natura’s vision is to heal the rift between conventional healthcare and plant-based medicine. To ignite passion and confidence within healthcare practitioners to harness the power of botanical and nutritional formulas.
Nearly four decades ago, Donald “Donnie” Yance, a devoted Franciscan monk, left the monastery compelled to transform medicine through plants. A Clinical Master Herbalist and Certified Nutritionist, Donnie now spreads wisdom and promotes optimal health and wellbeing through botanical and nutritional medicine, with a focus on eradicating chronic disease.
Natura has successfully positioned themselves as the trusted brand of therapeutic dietary supplements that effectively promotes health and wellness. Natura Health Products isn’t just about selling products, they are the foremost experts in the clinical application of botanical and nutritional medicine.
NATURA’S TARGET AUDIENCE
Natura’s primary audience is healthcare practitioners who prescribe Natura. They are knowledgeable, forward-thinking, “wholistic” healers with a healthy respect for ancient wisdom as well as ongoing modern medical science.
Our secondary audience is the patient community, especially those looking for a more holistic approach to healing and wellbeing.
THE CUSTOMER JOURNEY OR LACK THEIR OF…
As successful as Natura had become at positioning themselves, there was a clear disconnect with brand messaging and the audience. Likewise, online there was a massive breakdown in the customer journey. This was two-fold in that the website prior to Bigcommerce really only dealt with their B2B customer groups, who were the primary, but this left all end customers really wanting.
Prior to BigCommerce, Natura Health Products was a custom Magento build from the 2007 when Magento first came into play. Over the years, this build became less reliable, less secure and harder to keep up to date. Even as robust as Magento is, Natura had grown to a point where administrative operations for order tracking, shipping and fulfillment were bogging down. Ultimately, they were looking at a significant rebuild on Magento or a new platform.
• To create a site that matched their brand messaging
• To have the ability to scale up
• To have support for keeping site updated as tech changes
• To add subscriptions
• To add loyalty programs and more easily upsell items
• To have a more streamlined registration process
• To be able to integrate the registration process with an automated way to set up certain practioners as affiliates and track those affiliates patients orders for commission.
Given this information, we put Natura in direct contact with BigCommerce and worked with them to accurately convey their specific needs, goals, and required functionality. With an enterprise level migration and build of this size working together effectively is the only way to set up a strategy to get the job done right. With any Big eCommerce build, there are always going to be areas of compromise, but understanding what you absolutely need to have and how to accomplish it are fundamental in making the decision on which platform you proceed with. Ultimately, BigCommerce was able to provide the foundation, the security and the support for what Natura needed to do. Pixel provided the development expertise for goals, sales funnels, and integrations.
