The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Santa Rosa Website

If your Santa Rosa e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that's perfect for every Santa Rosa website.

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

Santa Rosa WooCommerce Website Design Services

The most popular Santa Rosa website content management system is WordPress. If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce web developer in Santa Rosa.

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

Here's why our ecommerce website developers love WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Santa Rosa 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 Santa Rosa WooCommerce websites. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Santa Rosa e-commerce clients.
  • If your Santa Rosa business website runs on WordPress, we recommend WooCommerce. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • The web companies in Santa Rosa who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • Most Santa Rosa businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Santa Rosa websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Santa Rosa Shopify Web Design Services

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

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • Santa Rosa merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Santa Rosa without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When Santa Rosa 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • The best e-commerce platform for Santa Rosa businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Take your e-commerce redesign in Santa Rosa 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 e-commerce website redesign in Santa Rosa. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Santa Rosa ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Santa Rosa. How do people get there? It's important to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects if most of your online sales come from organic search traffic. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Santa Rosa website.
  • How do customers like your Santa Rosa 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.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? If so, you need to understand the new Santa Rosa website won't work like your old one did. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Santa Rosa Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Santa Rosa. Make a list of the things you want your Santa Rosa e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for Santa Rosa ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Santa Rosa business.
  • Upgrade an old Santa Rosa e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • To redesign an e-commerce site 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 California! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Santa Rosa e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Santa Rosa Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design agency in Santa Rosa. 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 good idea for how things will be when the Santa Rosa ecommerce web development service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce website development questions we get from businesses in and around California:

  • Is your ecommerce web design outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce website design because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Santa Rosa website.
  • 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 Santa Rosa ecommerce development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Santa Rosa WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Are you able to help Santa Rosa businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps Santa Rosa clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • What's the turnaround time for Santa Rosa ecommerce web development services? WebCitz usually gets Santa Rosa ecommerce website development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your Santa Rosa ecommerce web designer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce development portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Santa Rosa Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Santa Rosa should follow a formal process. Here's how we design Santa Rosa ecommerce sites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Santa Rosa company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce web development firm for your Santa Rosa website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off 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 Santa Rosa ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify, 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. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your Santa Rosa ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Website Development

The longest part of your Santa Rosa ecommerce build will be the development. It includes 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!)

As soon as the ecommerce web design project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Santa Rosa e-commerce storefront once you're comfortable managing it. You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

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

Additional Services for Your Santa Rosa Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Santa Rosa. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your Santa Rosa e-commerce site:

  • You can get multimedia to showcase your Santa Rosa web business from our on-site video production team.
  • Let our digital marketers help you rank your ecommerce products higher in Santa Rosa search results, or nationwide.
  • We've got a PPC advertising team who can handle any campaign type on Google Ads, Facebook Ads, and Bing Ads.

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!
