Quote: Barbara Karpf, president of DecoratorsBest, says Avalara software has saved time and money by handling the company's complex sales tax requirements, allowing her fabric and wallpaper business to build staff in areas that can help it grow.  "We would be totally bogged down if we didn't have Avalara handling all of our sales tax in over 20 states," she says.

Storefront Newsletter
"DecoratorsBest Makes Way to the Top"
January 2006
"Home decor fabric and wallpaper merchant finds success through StoreFront’s Search Engine Marketing Services.
When Barbara Karpf launched DecoratorsBest back in 2004, she didn’t know what to expect. Fortunately she found StoreFront and was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to get her site up and running. But just getting a site up and running doesn’t necessarily lead to success if you can’t drive the right traffic to your site.
Pleased with the services she received in helping her launch her online store, Karpf elected to turn to StoreFront when she needed help with search engine optimization.
"Our rankings improved since we started utilizing StoreFront. In the last six months, our sales have more than doubled," said Barbara Karpf, President of DecoratorsBest. "We also decreased our pay-per-click advertising expenses and are much more profitable. The traffic to our site is substantial and constant. It increases monthly. A majority of our inquiries turn into sales. We’re so busy we need more help." 
Karpf attributes much of her success to keyword selection. StoreFront’s experts helped her select a set of keywords specific to the products her site carried, which produced better, more cost-effective results than the broader keywords she used previously. Currently, searches for keywords like designer drapery fabric, designer wallpaper, and Ralph Lauren wallpaper all result in a front page listing for on both Google and Yahoo.
DecoratorsBest features the best home decorating upholstery fabrics and designer drapery fabrics plus discount designer wallpaper offered in design centers. Many decorating fabric items are sold exclusively to interior designers for their clients and are now available to the general public through their site. And now, through the help of StoreFront’s Search Engine Optimization Services, they are much easier to find.
