Pricing for Davenport, IA Ecommerce Web Design Services

The cost of our ecommerce web design services is based on the amount of time you can afford to allocate toward the development of your online store. If you are on a tight budget, we recommend you look at a template-based ecommerce website to save money. Alternatively, if customization and performance are of high priority, you could instead consider a from-scratch custom ecommerce website that starts with a design mockup.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Davenport Website

If your Davenport 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 Davenport website.

To deliver amazing ecommerce web design services in Davenport, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce website designers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Davenport WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

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

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers like 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 Davenport WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Davenport e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • If your Davenport business already has a WordPress site, 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.
  • WooCommerce is a great open-source option for Davenport web companies. 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 Davenport businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Davenport web companies using Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Davenport Shopify Web Development Services

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

With our Shopify web development company, we can design a website for a new or existing business in Iowa that runs on the Shopify platform.

Here are some reasons our ecommerce website developers like Shopify:

  • For Davenport merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Davenport, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • For Davenport 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • Shopify is a great option for Davenport e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. 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

Davenport 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 Davenport seriously. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Davenport ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in Davenport. You should consider these factors when redesigning Davenport ecommerce sites:

  • Where can people find your Davenport e-commerce 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 Davenport website.
  • What do customers think about your Davenport 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.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Davenport Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Davenport. Make a list of the things you want your Davenport e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. This will help keep you on track during the design of your e-commerce site, and set measurable goals for later. We've seen these goals for Davenport ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Davenport-based company.
  • To migrate an old Davenport ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • To redesign an existing Davenport e-commerce website in the same platform to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility problems 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 Davenport e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Davenport Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web development firm in Davenport. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Davenport ecommerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce website design questions a lot by Iowa e-commerce businesses:

  • 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 Davenport e-commerce 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 create 301 redirects for Davenport ecommerce website developments that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Davenport WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Davenport ecommerce web design.
  • Can you help Davenport business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Davenport clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Davenport ecommerce development services? WebCitz usually gets Davenport ecommerce web 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 Davenport ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Davenport Ecommerce Websites

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

1.) Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Davenport company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. By having everyone involved in the ecommerce project speak up, you'll minimize confusion and project delays.

2.) Kickoff Conversation

If you feel confident about our ecommerce website design firm for your Davenport website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your 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.

3.) Design Mockups or Template Search

We'll start with mockups for your Davenport 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. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Davenport ecommerce site.

4.) Ecommerce Web Design

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

5.) Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

As soon as the ecommerce web development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Davenport e-commerce storefront once you're comfortable managing it. If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been working on our Iowa ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!

Additional Services for Your Davenport Ecommerce Web Design Project

Corey was extremely helpful and spent a considerable amount of time going over my difficulties with a newly created website put together by someone else. I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from Webcity and Corey got back to me within minutes!

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!
