Massachusetts Ecommerce Website Design Specialists

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

Understanding the nature of your Massachusetts ecommerce business is key to developing an effective ecommerce website. We talk to you about a lot of things, including your history running an ecommerce business in Massachusetts, the platforms you've used to sell online, the quality of your product data, how your customers interact with your brand, what functionality you need, and how you handle your orders.

We can make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Massachusetts-based online business based on this information. If you're building a new Massachusetts ecommerce site or redesigning an existing one, choosing the right platform is key.

It is important to begin Massachusetts ecommerce development projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your Massachusetts online store, whether you use our ecommerce web development company or a different web designer. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the Massachusetts ecommerce development to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

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

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Massachusetts Website

If your Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts website.

To deliver amazing ecommerce web design services in Massachusetts, we have different development teams for WooCommerce projects and Shopify and BigCommerce projects. This gives our ecommerce website designers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Massachusetts WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Massachusetts get started with WooCommerce.

Here's why our ecommerce web developers love 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 Massachusetts WooCommerce websites. Shopify or BigCommerce theme development can be more expensive for Massachusetts e-commerce clients.
  • If your Massachusetts business website runs on WordPress, 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 Massachusetts web companies. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. If you want to use Shopify or BigCommerce, 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.
  • For Massachusetts 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. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Massachusetts websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Massachusetts Shopify Website Design Services

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

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

Our ecommerce web designers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Massachusetts merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Massachusetts, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • For Massachusetts web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we recommend Shopify. It's more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • We recommend Shopify for Massachusetts e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. 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.

Massachusetts BigCommerce Web Design Services

A robust API makes BigCommerce one of the most flexible web-based ecommerce platforms in Massachusetts. To build a successful BigCommerce website you will need to search for an experienced BigCommerce web designer in Massachusetts.

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce businesses in the Massachusetts area build out and improve their online stores.

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

  • Online companies in Massachusetts 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 build out a "headless e-commerce" solution for your Massachusetts business, which is the process of bridging a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming to your existing website.
  • BigCommerce has a robust API that's really helpful for building custom functionality in Massachusetts ecommerce sites.
  • If you don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform, we recommend BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts seriously. You can lose search rankings and sales if your Massachusetts ecommerce web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, changes your URL structure drastically, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Massachusetts ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Massachusetts ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your Massachusetts e-commerce website? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Massachusetts website.
  • How do customers like your Massachusetts site? 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, you need to understand the new Massachusetts 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 Goals for Your Massachusetts Ecommerce Web Design Service

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

  • To build out an online store for a new Massachusetts business.
  • To migrate an legacy Massachusetts 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 improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • For ADA and WCAG compliance.

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

Questions to Ask Your Massachusetts Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website design firm in Massachusetts. While the answer will be valuable, how it's delivered should be even more important. Pay attention to whether the sales team is willing to answer detailed questions. If you do this now, you'll get an idea of what to expect in future communication. Here are a few of the ecommerce web development questions we get from businesses in and around Massachusetts:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce website development services? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? It's hard to keep the URL structure the same during platform migrations, but WebCitz tries. We create 301 redirects for Massachusetts ecommerce developments that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? WebCitz makes design mockups for all Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps Massachusetts clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Typically, the answer is based on the web design and ecommerce requirements.
  • What's the turnaround time for Massachusetts ecommerce web development services? WebCitz usually gets most Massachusetts-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Your Massachusetts ecommerce website developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Massachusetts Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Phone Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Massachusetts company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future plans. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Meeting

If you're happy with our ecommerce website design firm for your Massachusetts website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff 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 Mockup or Theme Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Massachusetts 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 Massachusetts ecommerce site if you opted for a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce.

Ecommerce Website Development

The longest part of your Massachusetts ecommerce build will be the development. Data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout the process, you'll be able to follow along via a password-protected development website.

Training & Launch

When the ecommerce web development 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 Massachusetts e-commerce storefront! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our Massachusetts ecommerce website 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 Massachusetts Ecommerce Web Design Project

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

Corey was extremely helpful and spent a considerable amount of time going over my difficulties with a newly created website put together by someone else. 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. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from Webcity and Corey got back to me within minutes!
