The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Bakersfield Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Bakersfield ecommerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There isn't one ecommerce platform that's perfect for every Bakersfield website.

For WooCommerce and Shopify projects, we have separate development teams. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web designers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Bakersfield WooCommerce Website Design Packages

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Bakersfield. To run an ecommerce website using WordPress you will likely be searching for a WooCommerce website designer in Bakersfield.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing ecommerce businesses in Bakersfield get started with WooCommerce.

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website developers like WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Bakersfield web development projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce template is a great starting point for Bakersfield WooCommerce website designs. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Bakersfield ecommerce customers.
  • If your Bakersfield business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money rebuilding it just to add ecommerce?
  • The web companies in Bakersfield who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. If you want to use Shopify, you might have to pay a lot of money for the platform, and their apps are often a lot more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most Bakersfield small businesses that want a product builder should consider 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 Bakersfield web companies using Shopify that offer easy configurator functionality.
  • WooCommerce is good if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Bakersfield Shopify Website Design Tactics

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. If you want to run an ecommerce website in Bakersfield, you'll probably need a Shopify website developer.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing businesses throughout California within the Shopify platform.

Our ecommerce developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Bakersfield merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Bakersfield without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • For Bakersfield web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a good option for Bakersfield ecommerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. For testing out a new product, it's usually faster to set up a Shopify website and go through various apps and design ideas to test conversion rate optimization.

Remaking Existing Ecommerce Websites

If you are unhappy with the performance, functionality, or conversion rate of your Bakersfield ecommerce website it might be time to think about a website refresh.

Take your ecommerce web redesign in Bakersfield seriously. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an ecommerce website refresh in Bakersfield. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Bakersfield ecommerce websites:

  • Where can people find your Bakersfield ecommerce site? If most online sales are coming from organic search traffic it will be critical to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Bakersfield website.
  • What do customers think about your Bakersfield website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big tweaks. Consider being more conservative with design changes if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Are you moving your ecommerce platform? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your Bakersfield Ecommerce Web Development Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Bakersfield can be an expensive project. Make a list of the things you want your Bakersfield ecommerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your ecommerce website progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for Bakersfield ecommerce web development projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Bakersfield ecommerce venture.
  • To migrate an old Bakersfield ecommerce website to a new platform to improve functionality, or website security.
  • To remake an existing Bakersfield ecommerce site in the same platform to improve user experience, reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility errors for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such California ecommerce development solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce web development! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your Bakersfield ecommerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Bakersfield Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Bakersfield ecommerce development company before making a hiring decision. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. You'll get a great idea for how things will be when the Bakersfield ecommerce web design service starts up. Here are some common ecommerce website design questions we get asked by ecommerce businesses in and around California:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce development? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce web development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Bakersfield ecommerce website.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We do create 301 redirects for Bakersfield ecommerce web designs that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce development? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Bakersfield WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Can you help Bakersfield small business owners choose the right platform for their ecommerce site? WebCitz helps businesses pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and ecommerce needs.
  • How quick is the delivery time for Bakersfield ecommerce development services? WebCitz usually gets most Bakersfield-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for complicated ones.
  • Have you seen your Bakersfield ecommerce web developer's past work or recent reviews? Check out our ecommerce website development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Bakersfield Ecommerce Storefronts

You should expect Bakersfield ecommerce development companies to have a formal process for how a new ecommerce site will be developed. Here's how we design Bakersfield ecommerce sites:

1.) Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Bakersfield company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. This helps ensure everyone working on your project has an opportunity to voice their opinion, which goes a long way to minimizing confusion throughout the ecommerce project.

2.) Kickoff Conversation

If you feel confident about our ecommerce web design company for your Bakersfield website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit 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.

3.) Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future Bakersfield ecommerce website development is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. This helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an ecommerce developer starts working on it. This is where we start helping you select a template for your Bakersfield ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

4.) Ecommerce Web Design

The development phase of your Bakersfield ecommerce build will be the longest. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout this process, you'll have a password-protected development website to visit so you can follow along and provide comments as necessary.

5.) Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce web development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. If you're comfortable with managing the ecommerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Bakersfield ecommerce site! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been improving this California ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We have a tremendous amount of experience planning, designing, developing, and launching successful ecommerce web sites throughout United States!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
