Louisiana Ecommerce Website Design Experts

Our ecommerce web designers have more than 18 years of experience building custom websites for Louisiana-area businesses.

Developing an effective ecommerce website in Louisiana starts with understanding the nature of your e-commerce business. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your Louisiana ecommerce business, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how customers interact with your brand, what functionality you need to be successful, and how you handle order fulfillment.

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

It is important to begin Louisiana ecommerce web development projects with an understanding of the business goals. Regardless of whether you choose a local Louisiana ecommerce website developer or a national ecommerce web design company, we'll help you gauge the success of your Louisiana ecommerce development service. It will help set expectations throughout the Louisiana ecommerce web development so you get the best website.

We'll even offer optional Louisiana digital marketing and website support services after your Louisiana ecommerce website is done!

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Louisiana Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Louisiana business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Louisiana-area websites.

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

Louisiana WooCommerce Website Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system for Louisiana websites. If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce web developer in Louisiana.

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

Here's why our ecommerce website developers love WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Louisiana 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 Louisiana WooCommerce web site. Theme development within Shopify or BigCommerce is often more expensive for Louisiana e-commerce clients.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Louisiana businesses with an existing WordPress website. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money redesigning it just to add ecommerce?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Louisiana web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify and BigCommerce have expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • For Louisiana businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Louisiana web companies using BigCommerce or Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Louisiana Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular hosted e-commerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify web designer in Louisiana.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • Louisiana merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Louisiana, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Louisiana 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.
  • Shopify is a great option for Louisiana 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.

Louisiana BigCommerce Website Design Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Louisiana. If you want to run an ecommerce site with BigCommerce you'll probably need a Louisiana BigCommerce web developer.

Our BigCommerce web development team helps startups and existing ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online sites.

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

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Louisiana 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 as an external ecommerce platform for legacy websites that can't fully migrate their website to a new platform. We can implement "headless e-commerce" for your Louisiana storefront, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • BigCommerce has a robust API that's really helpful for building custom functionality in Louisiana ecommerce sites.
  • Our recommendation for Louisiana merchants who don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform is BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

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

Before starting Louisiana 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 Louisiana ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your Louisiana e-commerce website? 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 Louisiana website.
  • How do customers like your Louisiana site? 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.
  • Are you migrating e-commerce platforms? If so, understand the new Louisiana website will function differently than your previous website. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your Louisiana Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in Louisiana can be expensive. Before hiring a local ecommerce developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Louisiana ecommerce web development 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 Louisiana ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online store for a new Louisiana business.
  • To migrate an legacy Louisiana ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • 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.
  • For ADA and WCAG compliance.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce website development in Louisiana! If your Louisiana 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 Louisiana Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your Louisiana ecommerce web design company a lot of questions. 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 Louisiana ecommerce development service gets started. Here are a few of the ecommerce web development questions we get from businesses in and around Louisiana:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce website development services? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce web design because we have our own Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your Louisiana website.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? It's hard to keep the URL structure the same during platform migrations, but WebCitz tries. For Louisiana ecommerce development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Louisiana WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Louisiana ecommerce web development.
  • Do you help Louisiana business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Louisiana ecommerce website development services? WebCitz usually gets Louisiana ecommerce web design projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Louisiana ecommerce website designer should have a ecommerce 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 Louisiana Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect Louisiana ecommerce web development companies to have a formal process for how they do it. Here is our process for designing Louisiana ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Louisiana 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 Meeting

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce web design agency for your Louisiana 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 Mockup or Theme Selection

If your future Louisiana 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. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your Louisiana ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The development phase of your Louisiana ecommerce build will be the longest. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce web development project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Louisiana 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 Louisiana ecommerce website development 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!

  • We have an on-site video production team to help with the creation of multimedia to showcase your Louisiana web-based business.
