Alaska Ecommerce Website Design Professionals

Our ecommerce web developers have built custom websites for Alaska-area businesses for more than 18 years.

Developing an effective ecommerce website in Alaska starts with understanding the nature of your e-commerce business. We talk to you about a lot of things, including your history running an ecommerce business in Alaska, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how your customers interact with your brand, what functionality you need, and how you handle your orders.

We can make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Alaska-based online business based on this information. If you're creating a new Alaska ecommerce website or redesigning an old one, you have to pick the right platform for your needs.

An ecommerce website development project in Alaska needs to start with a clear understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your Alaska online store, whether you use our ecommerce web design agency or a different website designer. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the Alaska ecommerce website development to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

We'll even offer optional Alaska digital marketing and website support services after your Alaska ecommerce website is done!

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Alaska Website

If your Alaska e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Alaska-area websites.

To deliver amazing ecommerce development services in Alaska, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify and BigCommerce projects. This gives our ecommerce web developers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Alaska WooCommerce Web Development Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Alaska. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce website developer in Alaska.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Alaska get started with WooCommerce.

Here's why our ecommerce web designers love WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Alaska web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Alaska WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Alaska e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • If your Alaska business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are happy with the look and feel of your content-based website, why invest the time and money into redesigning that website just to add ecommerce?
  • WooCommerce is a great open-source option for Alaska web companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify and BigCommerce have expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Alaska businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are using WordPress and WooCommerce, there are numerous product builder plugins to consider and we've got experience developing custom builders in WooCommerce. However, there are apps for Alaska web companies using BigCommerce or Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Alaska Shopify Website Design Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Alaska.

A lot of our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for new and existing businesses in Alaska.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce web developers often recommend Shopify:

  • Alaska merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Alaska, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • When Alaska web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • We recommend Shopify for Alaska e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. It is often faster to set up a Shopify website to test out a new product and cycle through various apps and ideas to test conversion optimization strategies.

Alaska BigCommerce Web Design Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Alaska due to its robust API functionality. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce web developer in Alaska.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing Alaska-area ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online websites.

Here are a few reasons our e-commerce website developers often recommend BigCommerce:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Alaska interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. The benefit of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about regularly installing updates, like you'd find with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can implement "headless e-commerce" for your Alaska storefront, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in Alaska ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for Alaska merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Alaska ecommerce sites that don't perform, don't function, or don't convert well might need a redesign or overhaul.

You should approach Alaska e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Alaska ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Alaska ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. You should consider these factors when redesigning Alaska ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Alaska e-commerce site? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Alaska website.
  • How do customers like your Alaska site? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Alaska Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Alaska. Before hiring a local ecommerce developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Alaska ecommerce web development service. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. Here are some of the goals we've seen for Alaska ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Alaska-based company.
  • To migrate an old Alaska ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • For ADA and WCAG compliance.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce website development in Alaska! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Alaska e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Alaska Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design agency in Alaska. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. If you do this now, you'll get an idea of what to expect in future communication. We get asked these ecommerce web development questions a lot by Alaska e-commerce businesses:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce website development? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? It's hard to keep the URL structure the same during platform migrations, but WebCitz tries. For Alaska ecommerce website design, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Alaska WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify and BigCommerce, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Alaska ecommerce development.
  • Can you help Alaska business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz does help Alaska clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Alaska ecommerce web development services? WebCitz usually gets Alaska ecommerce website development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Alaska ecommerce web designer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. Check out our ecommerce development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Alaska Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Alaska should follow a formal process. Here is our process for designing Alaska ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Alaska company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future plans. By having everyone involved in the ecommerce project speak up, you'll minimize confusion and project delays.

Kickoff Conversation

If you're happy with our ecommerce web development firm for your Alaska website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff call! This will be an opportunity for everyone involved in the project to have discussions about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each phase of the design, and anticipated turnaround times for each element of the project.

Design Mockup or Theme Selection

If your future Alaska ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project starts with mocking up your website. This way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Alaska ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest phase of your Alaska ecommerce build will be the development process. Data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce web design project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Alaska e-commerce site! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been improving this Alaska ecommerce website design process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across the United States!

Additional Services for Your Alaska Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Alaska. Let's explore some additional services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your custom Alaska e-commerce website:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help you showcase your Alaska business on the web.
