Maryland Ecommerce Website Design Specialists

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

Understanding the nature of your Maryland 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 Maryland 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.

We can make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Maryland-based online business based on this information. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new Maryland ecommerce website or redesigning an existing Maryland e-commerce website.

An ecommerce development project in Maryland needs to start with a clear understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your Maryland online store, whether you use our ecommerce web development firm or a different website developer. We'll use this information to set expectations on your Maryland ecommerce website design so you get the best website for your storefront.

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

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Maryland Website

If your Maryland 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 Maryland website.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce web development services in Maryland, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. This gives our ecommerce website developers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Maryland WooCommerce Web Design Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system in Maryland. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web designer in Maryland.

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

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers like WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Maryland 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 Maryland WooCommerce web site. Theme development for Maryland e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Maryland 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?
  • The web companies in Maryland who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. 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.
  • For Maryland businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Maryland web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Maryland Shopify Website 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 Maryland.

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

Our ecommerce web developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • We recommend Shopify for Maryland merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Maryland, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • We recommend Shopify for Maryland web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in 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 Maryland e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. For testing out a new product, it's usually faster to set up a Shopify website and go through various apps and design ideas to test conversion rate optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

Maryland ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Maryland ecommerce websites:

  • Where can people find your Maryland e-commerce site? 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 Maryland website.
  • What do customers think about your Maryland website? 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.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, understand the new Maryland 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 Maryland Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Maryland. Make a list of the things you want your Maryland 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. Here are some of the goals we've seen for Maryland ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Maryland e-commerce venture.
  • To migrate an old Maryland ecommerce site to a new platform to improve functionality, or site 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 problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

It's great to be able to help you with your new ecommerce web design in Maryland! If your Maryland 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 Maryland Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website design firm in Maryland. 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. If you do this now, you'll get an idea of what to expect in future communication. Here are some common ecommerce web development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Maryland:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce website development? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. For Maryland ecommerce development, we do 301 redirects with a different URL structure.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? For Maryland WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Maryland ecommerce web development.
  • Do you help Maryland business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • What's the turnaround time for Maryland ecommerce website development services? WebCitz usually gets Maryland 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 Maryland ecommerce website designer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. WebCitz has an ecommerce development portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Maryland Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Maryland company, your history with ecommerce, 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 Conversation

If you're happy with our ecommerce web development company for your Maryland 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 Search

If your future Maryland ecommerce website design is built with WordPress and WooCommerce, or if your design budget can handle a custom design in Shopify, 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. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Maryland ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The development phase of your Maryland ecommerce build will be the longest. 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 Launch (Plus Website Training!)

When the ecommerce web design project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Maryland e-commerce storefront! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

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

Additional Services for Your Maryland Ecommerce Web Design Project

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

  • We have an on-site video production team to help with the creation of multimedia to showcase your Maryland web-based business.
  • We've got a digital marketing and SEO team to help rank your ecommerce products higher in Maryland search results, or nationwide.
  • We have a PPC advertising team who can help you with any campaign type on Google Ads, Facebook Ads, or Bing Ads.
  • With our website accessibility solutions, you'll be able to comply with ADA and WCAG standards.
  • To make your products sell to any audience type, we offer comprehensive product page layouts and conversion rate optimization services.
