The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Burlington Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Burlington e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Burlington-area websites.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce web development services in Burlington, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. This allows our local ecommerce website developers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Burlington WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

In Burlington, we help startups and e-commerce businesses get started with WooCommerce.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • If you need a custom theme, but have a limited budget, we recommend WordPress or WooCommerce. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Burlington WooCommerce websites. Shopify theme development can be more expensive for Burlington e-commerce clients.
  • If your Burlington 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Burlington web companies who prefer open-source software. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. Alternatively, Shopify has high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most Burlington businesses that require a product builder. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Burlington websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Burlington Shopify Web Development Services

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

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • Burlington merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Burlington without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Burlington web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • We recommend Shopify for Burlington 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.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

You should approach Burlington e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your Burlington ecommerce web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Burlington e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Burlington ecommerce websites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Burlington. 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's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Burlington website.
  • What do customers think of your Burlington website? Making big changes to your website is okay 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 Burlington 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 Burlington Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Burlington can be an expensive project. Before hiring a local ecommerce website developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Burlington ecommerce web design service. This will help keep you on track throughout the design of your e-commerce website, and set measurable objectives for later. The most common goals we've seen for Burlington ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online website for a new Burlington e-commerce venture.
  • Upgrade an old Burlington 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.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Iowa ecommerce development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Burlington e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Burlington Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Burlington ecommerce web development firm before making a hiring decision. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. Pay attention to how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the Burlington ecommerce web design service gets started. Here are some common ecommerce website design questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Iowa:

  • Is your ecommerce development outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce web development because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Burlington website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We create 301 redirects for Burlington ecommerce website developments that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Burlington WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Are you able to help Burlington businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps Burlington clients choose the right ecommerce platform. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Burlington ecommerce web design services? WebCitz typically completes most Burlington-area ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your Burlington ecommerce web developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce website development portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Burlington Ecommerce Websites

You should expect Burlington ecommerce web design companies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here is our process for designing Burlington ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Burlington company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future goals. 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.

Kickoff Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce development agency for your Burlington website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a kick off call. Everybody will have a chance to talk about how the project will unfold, who will handle each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for completion.

Design Mockups or Template Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Burlington ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. 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 Burlington ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify.

Ecommerce Website Development

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

Website Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce website development project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Burlington e-commerce storefront! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this Iowa ecommerce web design process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites 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.
