Web design for e-commerce is just like any other retail concept – where presentation is everything. Focus on the top line and the bottom line will follow.
Because we get to know you, your business and how you want to sell up front – we ensure the system is perfectly tuned to you. By asking the right questions up front we can also ensure fewer ‘surprises’ (of the worst kind!) in the project cycle when it comes to costs. We understand the fundamentals of selling online; multiple unique buying options, bulk purchasing, tiered pricing and delivery, user accounts, stock control etc etc. We know that from the get go you want to know you can log in to the system and start to update and grow your store without worrying about whether a piece of functionality is going to be there or not.
We know all about effective web design and web design for e-commerce. Our clients have enjoyed a huge amount of success by launching websites we’ve both designed and built. There are a world of e-Commerce systems out there, all have their own pros and cons – but the one we’ve found to be the most robust is Magento.
We don’t throw the kitchen sink at you, nor do we take away the basics (and then charge you to put them back in!). We offer a well thought out tailored solution that does everything you want it to do from day one. And we constantly work with you after launch – overseeing the store and making sure that as you confidently take full ownership over it we’re with you every step of the way to make sure it’s selling your products. We’re proactive in coming forward with new ideas and ways of helping you sell.
Magento is used by some of the largest online retailers in the world. We’ve been using Magento since it was called ‘osCommerce’ – we don’t just know the system, we grew up with it! And we’re proud of our achievements with Magento. Just ask Pineapple Shoes, who got a store that ticked all the boxes when it came to the fundamentals and client expectations of online retailing, but who also got an online store that looked like nothing else in their market and directly targeted their core audience through design and planning. The bespoke adaptation of Magento and the design we delivered means Pineapple Shoes will stand head and shoulders above their competition for a long time to come.
Having a beautiful e-commerce web design is one thing, but having one that is secure, functions as expected and integrates into your own internal stock / CRM systems is quite another. Your web design needs to build trust and faith in your customers, after all, they’re about to hand over credit card details to you and no one will do that on a website they feel they can’t trust. We work with you and your bank to ensure the highest level of data security transfer – building trust in your customers through clearly labelled shopping processes and understanding their needs as a consumer.
We can also integrate your online business with your offline business. If you’re currently running an internal system we’ll work closely with you to make sure that your workload doesn’t double when you launch your website. Stock control, customer management, sales reports etc etc – we’ve got it covered. We’ve found that our clients will start using their online system that we’ve designed and built more and more to manage both aspects of their business.
