Manufacturing Company Ecommerce Website Design Agencies

Our e-commerce web developers have built custom websites for manufacturing companies and other industries for more than 18 years.

Understanding the nature of your manufacturing company ecommerce business is key to developing an effective ecommerce website. The things we talk about with you are things like how you've run your manufacturing company ecommerce business, what platforms you've used, how your manufacturers interact with your brand, what features you need, and how you handle orders.

Having this knowledge allows us to make informed recommendations regarding the best e-commerce platform for your manufacturers. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new manufacturer ecommerce website or redesigning an existing manufacturing company e-commerce website.

Ecommerce web development projects for manufacturers need to start with a clear understanding of the business goals. We'll help you determine the best metrics to use to gauge the success of your manufacturing company ecommerce web design service, regardless if you choose a local manufacturer e-commerce developer or a national ecommerce development company. It will help set expectations throughout the manufacturer ecommerce project so you get the best website.

After your manufacturer ecommerce web design service is complete, we'll even be available to offer manufacturing company digital marketing and website support services!

Benefits of a Custom Ecommerce Website Solution for Manufacturing Companies

We have experience working with local and national manufacturing companies to understand their ecommerce businesses. As an e-commerce developer, we've worked on a lot of custom projects, like:

  • Headless ecommerce developments within Shopify, BigCommerce, or Magento using tools like Laravel or Nuxt.js to bridge the CMS and ecommerce platform.
  • Product Information Management (PIM) systems to improve BigCommerce and Shopify product entry.
  • Sync inventory, list products, and fulfill orders across multiple platforms with multichannel ecommerce.
  • Amazon and eBay integrations to list products in third-party channels.
  • Mobile apps to make B2B shopping easier.
  • Data management solutions to migrate data between platforms, import product data from suppliers, or export sales data to third party systems.

When it comes to developing custom functionality for your manufacturing company e-commerce website, you'll be in good hands with our team. We will work with your manufacturers to understand your functionality requirements, outline the deliverables and turnaround time, and work with you after the launch to ensure everything is running smoothly.

The Best Ecommerce Platforms for Manufacturing Company Websites

If you're an e-commerce manufacturing company, we need to know what your website's goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that's perfect for every manufacturing company website.

For WooCommerce, Shopify and BigCommerce projects, we have separate development teams. This allows our local ecommerce developers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Manufacturer WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

For manufacturing company websites, we help startups and existing companies get started with WooCommerce.

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for manufacturer web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed manufacturer WooCommerce web site. Shopify or BigCommerce theme development can be more expensive for manufacturing company.
  • If your manufacturing company uses WordPress for its main website, 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 manufacturing companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for most manufacturing companies that require a product builder. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for manufacturing companies using BigCommerce or Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

Manufacturer Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular web-based ecommerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify website designer for manufacturing companies.

A lot of our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for new and existing manufacturing companies.

Our ecommerce developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For manufacturers interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business for your manufacturing company, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • When manufacturing companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. 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 manufacturing companies 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.

Manufacturer BigCommerce Web Development Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available for manufacturing companies due to its robust API functionality. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce website designer for your manufacturing company.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing manufacturing company ecommerce websites build out and improve their storefronts.

Our e-commerce web designers recommend BigCommerce for a few reasons:

  • Any manufacturing company looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out BigCommerce. An advantage of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about updating it like you do 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 use a "headless e-commerce" approach for your manufacturing company, which is the integration of a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your legacy website.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in manufacturing company ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for manufacturers who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning an Existing Manufacturing Company Ecommerce Website

Manufacturing Company 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 project for your manufacturing company seriously. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting manufacturing company 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 manufacturer ecommerce websites:

  • Where can people find your manufacturing company 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's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your manufacturing company website.
  • What do manufacturers think of your manufacturing company website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Are you moving your e-commerce platform? If so, you need to understand the new manufacturer 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 the Goals of Your Manufacturer Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site for your manufacturing company. Make a list of the things you want your manufacturer e-commerce website to accomplish before you hire a developer. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. The most common goals we've seen for manufacturer ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online website for a new manufacturing company e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an old manufacturer ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site security.
  • To redesign an existing manufacturing company e-commerce website in the same platform 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.

We've provided such manufacturing company ecommerce solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! If your manufacturing company needs help putting together a list of goals for your ecommerce website just reach out to our team for assistance!

Questions to Ask An Ecommerce Web Designer for Manufacturers

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web design company specializing in manufacturing companies. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the manufacturer e-commerce web design service gets started. Here are some common ecommerce web development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around the local area:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce developments? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers for your manufacturer e-commerce 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 do create 301 redirects for manufacturer ecommerce developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz makes design mockups for all manufacturer WooCommerce development projects, but we don't create design mockups for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that are on a restricted budget.
  • Are you able to help manufacturers choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps manufacturing companies choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast manufacturer ecommerce web development works? WebCitz typically completes most manufacturing company ecommerce development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your manufacturing company ecommerce developer have a design 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 Manufacturer Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website for your manufacturing company should follow a formal process. Here's how we design manufacturing company ecommerce sites:

Discovery Phone Calls

There are typically multiple discovery calls to learn more about your manufacturing 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 Conversation

If you feel confident about our e-commerce design agency for your manufacturing company, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your 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

If your future manufacturer ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of 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. This is where we start helping you select a theme for your manufacturing company ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce.

Ecommerce Website Development

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

Website Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce web design project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your manufacturing company 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 optimizing our manufacturer ecommerce web 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 and Canada!

Additional Services for Manufacturing Company Ecommerce Web Design Projects

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront for your manufacturing company. Here are some other services, which are completely optional, to help you get the most out of your manufacturing company e-commerce site:

  • You can get multimedia to showcase your manufacturing company from our on-site video production team.
