Our ecommerce website developers have more than 18 years of experience building custom websites for Indiana-area businesses.

Knowing how your Indiana ecommerce business works is key to creating an effective ecommerce website. We talk to you about a lot of things, including your history running an ecommerce business in Indiana, 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.

Having this knowledge allows us to make informed recommendations regarding the best e-commerce platform for your Indiana-based online business. If you're building a new Indiana ecommerce site or redesigning an existing one, choosing the right platform is key.

You need to understand your business goals before you start an ecommerce web design project in Indiana. Regardless of whether you choose a local Indiana ecommerce developer or a national ecommerce web development firm, we'll help you gauge the success of your Indiana ecommerce web design service. We'll use this information to set expectations on your Indiana ecommerce website design so you get the best website for your storefront.

Even after your Indiana ecommerce website is designed, we'll be here to help with optional Indiana digital marketing and website maintenance!

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Indiana Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Indiana business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all Indiana businesses.

To deliver amazing ecommerce website development services in Indiana, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify and BigCommerce projects. This allows our local ecommerce web designers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Indiana WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce companies get started with WooCommerce in Indiana or other parts of the United States.

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Indiana web design projects that need a custom theme, but are on a budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed Indiana WooCommerce web site. Theme development for Indiana e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • If your Indiana 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 redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • WooCommerce is a great open-source option for Indiana web companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. If you want to use Shopify or BigCommerce, 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most Indiana businesses that require a product builder. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Indiana websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Indiana 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 website designer in Indiana.

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

Our ecommerce website developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Indiana merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Indiana, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • For Indiana 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, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • We recommend Shopify for Indiana e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Indiana BigCommerce Web Development Services

A robust API makes BigCommerce one of the most flexible web-based ecommerce platforms in Indiana. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce website developer in Indiana.

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

Here are a few reasons our e-commerce web designers often recommend BigCommerce:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Indiana 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 Indiana 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 Indiana ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for Indiana merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

It might be time to rethink your Indiana ecommerce website if you're not happy with its performance, functionality, or conversion rate.

Every Indiana e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Indiana ecommerce website designer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Indiana e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Indiana ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Indiana. 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. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your Indiana website.
  • What do customers think about your Indiana website? It's okay to make big changes to your website if your online shoppers aren't happy. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce 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 Indiana Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in Indiana can be expensive. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Indiana ecommerce web developer before you hire them. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. The most common goals we've seen for Indiana ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online store for a new Indiana business.
  • Upgrade an old Indiana 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 make shopping faster and the website more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce website development in Indiana! If your Indiana e-commerce company needs help putting together a list of goals for your ecommerce website just reach out to our team for assistance!

Questions to Ask Your Indiana Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your Indiana ecommerce web design agency a lot of questions. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the Indiana ecommerce web development service gets started. Here are a few of the ecommerce website development questions we get from businesses in and around Indiana:

  • Is your ecommerce web design outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce website design because we have our own Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your Indiana website.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. For Indiana ecommerce development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? For Indiana 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 Indiana ecommerce web development.
  • Can you help Indiana business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast Indiana ecommerce website development works? WebCitz usually gets most Indiana-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Does your Indiana ecommerce web designer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce development portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Indiana Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect Indiana ecommerce web development firms to have a formal process for how they do it. Here's how we make Indiana ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Indiana company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. 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 design company for your Indiana website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off call. There will be a chance for everyone involved in the project to have a discussion about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for each phase.

Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future Indiana 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 allows everyone to be on the same page regarding the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts the build process. 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 Indiana ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The development phase of your Indiana ecommerce build will be the longest. Data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce development project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Indiana 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 Indiana ecommerce web development 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 Indiana Ecommerce Web Design Project

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