Maine Ecommerce Website Design Experts

Our ecommerce website designers have built custom websites for Maine-area businesses for more than 18 years.

Understanding the nature of your Maine ecommerce business is key to developing an effective ecommerce website. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your Maine 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.

Knowing this lets us make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Maine-based business. If you're creating a new Maine ecommerce website or redesigning an old one, you have to pick the right platform for your needs.

You need to understand your business goals before you start an ecommerce web development project in Maine. Regardless of whether you choose a local Maine ecommerce website developer or a national ecommerce web design agency, we'll help you gauge the success of your Maine ecommerce web development service. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the Maine ecommerce website development to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

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

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Maine Website

If your Maine 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 Maine website.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce website design services in Maine, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Maine WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Maine 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 Maine WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Maine e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Maine businesses with an existing WordPress website. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • The web companies in Maine who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. If you want to use Shopify, 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 Maine businesses that require a product builder. 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 Maine websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

Maine Shopify Website Design Services

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

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

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce web designers often recommend Shopify:

  • We recommend Shopify for Maine merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Maine without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • We recommend Shopify for Maine 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 Maine 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

Maine 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 Maine seriously. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your Maine ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

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

  • You have an e-commerce site in Maine. 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 is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Maine website.
  • What do customers think about your Maine 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? If so, understand the new Maine website will function differently than your previous website. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Maine Ecommerce Web Design Service

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

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Maine-based company.
  • Upgrade an old Maine 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 improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Maine ecommerce web 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 Maine e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Maine Ecommerce Web Designer

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

  • Is your ecommerce web development outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce website development because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Maine 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 Maine ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Maine WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Maine ecommerce development.
  • Do you help Maine business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps Maine clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • Can you tell me how fast Maine ecommerce web development works? WebCitz usually gets most Maine-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 Maine ecommerce website developer have a design portfolio or client reviews? Check out our ecommerce web design portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Maine Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Maine 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.

Kickoff Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce website design firm for your Maine website development, sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule a 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.

Design Mockups or Template Search

We'll start with mockups for your Maine 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 Maine ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest part of your Maine ecommerce build will be the development. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce web development project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Maine e-commerce site! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been optimizing our Maine ecommerce website development process for more than 18 years. We've created, designed, developed, and launched successful e-commerce sites across the United States!

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

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.
