Benefits of a Custom Kentucky Ecommerce Website Solution

WebCitz was founded on the principle of providing custom web solutions throughout Kentucky and the United States. In the Kentucky-area, we've worked with local clients to understand their ecommerce business and build a custom website that's tailored to their online brand. As an e-commerce developer, we've worked on a lot of custom projects, like:

  • Headless ecommerce websites within Magento, Shopify, or BigCommerce using tools like Nuxt.js or Laravel to bring together the CMS and ecommerce platform.
  • Product Information Management (PIM) systems to improve BigCommerce and Shopify product entry.
  • Omnichannel ecommerce solutions to synchronize inventory, list products, and fulfill orders across multiple platforms.
  • Integrations with Amazon and eBay for third-party channels.
  • Development of mobile apps for B2B storefronts to boost online sales.
  • Data management solutions to migrate data between platforms, import product data from suppliers, or export sales data to third party systems.

You'll be in good hands with us when it comes to Kentucky e-commerce website development. We'd like to work with you and your Kentucky team to understand your functionality requirements, outline the deliverables and turnaround time, and help you with everything after the launch.

Our ecommerce web design agency is happy to provide Ashland, Covington, Henderson, Lexington, and Louisville with professional ecommerce development services.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Kentucky Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Kentucky e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all Kentucky businesses.

For WooCommerce, Shopify and BigCommerce 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.

Kentucky WooCommerce Web Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system for Kentucky websites. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce website developer in Kentucky.

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

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 Kentucky WooCommerce websites. Shopify or BigCommerce theme development can be more expensive for Kentucky e-commerce clients.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Kentucky businesses with an existing WordPress website. If you are happy with the look and feel of your content-based website, why invest the time and money into redesigning that website just to add ecommerce?
  • The web companies in Kentucky who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. Alternatively, Shopify and BigCommerce have high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most Kentucky 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. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Kentucky websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Kentucky Shopify Web 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 web designer in Kentucky.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • For Kentucky merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Kentucky without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Kentucky 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • Shopify is a great option for Kentucky 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.

Kentucky BigCommerce Web Development Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Kentucky. To build a successful BigCommerce website you will need to search for an experienced BigCommerce website designer in Kentucky.

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

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce to Kentucky companies looking for a hosted ecommerce platform. If you use a hosted e-commerce platform, you don't have to worry about updating it like you would 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 Kentucky 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 Kentucky ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for Kentucky merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Every Kentucky e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your website 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 Kentucky. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Kentucky ecommerce websites:

  • How do people reach your Kentucky e-commerce website? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your Kentucky website.
  • What do customers think of your Kentucky 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, understand the new Kentucky website will function differently than your previous website. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Kentucky Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Kentucky can be an expensive project. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Kentucky ecommerce website designer before you hire them. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for Kentucky ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Kentucky e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an legacy Kentucky ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order 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 issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Kentucky 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 Kentucky e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Kentucky Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Kentucky ecommerce web development company before making a hiring decision. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is 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 Kentucky ecommerce web design service starts up. Here are some common ecommerce development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Kentucky:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web development services? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 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 Kentucky ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Kentucky WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Do you help Kentucky business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz does help Kentucky clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • What's the turnaround time for Kentucky ecommerce website design services? WebCitz typically completes most Kentucky-area ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your Kentucky 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 Kentucky Ecommerce Websites

You should expect Kentucky ecommerce web design agencies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here's how we make Kentucky ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Kentucky 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.

Kickoff Meeting

If you're happy with our ecommerce web development firm for your Kentucky website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff 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 Selection

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

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest phase of your Kentucky ecommerce build will be the development process. 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 Training & Launch

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

We've been working on our Kentucky 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 the United States!
