La Pulpe is our family business. We run little convenience store inside companies in Costa Rica.

The old site didn’t have any information, just the last 10 post in our Instagram account, we need more than that because in 2020 one of our goals is to open at least one more store.

La Pulpe - Minimarket

Challenge

We are not the typical convenience store, we are focus in a very specific target. So our main goal is that our visitor understand what we do as fast as possible.

La Pulpe - Minimarket

Solution

We create a landing page where we explain exactly what we do and why are the best in doing it.

  1. Tagline: super important, we have to explain what we do in a few words.
  2. Benefits: explaning why companies needs to provide snacks to their employees.
  3. About us: we build stores to suit you and how we do it.
  4. Testimonials: our current customers talked about their experiences.
  5. Contact form: a way to catch leads.

Performance

We need the page to load as fast a possible. Gatsby is a excelent option for static web sites.
