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

Developing an effective ecommerce website in Montana starts with understanding the nature of your e-commerce business. The things we talk about with you are things like how you've run an ecommerce business in Montana, what platforms you've used, how your customers interact with your brand, what features you need, and how you handle orders.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Montana Website

If your Montana e-commerce company needs a platform recommendation, we need to know what your website's goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Montana-area websites.

For WooCommerce and Shopify projects, we have separate development teams. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce website developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Montana WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

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

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend 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 Montana WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Montana e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • If your Montana business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. 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 Montana who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. As an alternative, Shopify has expensive monthly fees (depending on your plan) and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • Most Montana businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It's easier to build a product builder on WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Montana websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • WooCommerce is great if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

Montana Shopify Web Development Services

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

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

Our ecommerce web developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • For Montana merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Montana, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • When Montana web 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • The best e-commerce platform for Montana businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. It's faster to test out a new product on a Shopify site and cycle through different apps and ideas for conversion optimization.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

Montana ecommerce sites that don't perform, don't function, or don't convert well might need a redesign or overhaul.

You should approach Montana e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your web developer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in Montana. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Montana ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Montana. 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's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Montana website.
  • What do customers think of your Montana 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? It will work different than your old website, if that's the case. You'll have to be prepared to change how you enter products, fill out orders, update customer info, and checkout.

Determine Goals for Your Montana Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Montana. Before hiring a local ecommerce web designer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Montana ecommerce website design service. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for Montana ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Montana business.
  • Upgrade an old Montana 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.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our Montana ecommerce 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 Montana e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Montana Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web development company in Montana. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Montana ecommerce web design service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce development questions we get from businesses in and around Montana:

  • Is your ecommerce web development outsourced? WebCitz doesn't outsource ecommerce website development because we have our own Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Montana 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 create 301 redirects for Montana ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Montana WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Montana ecommerce website design.
  • Can you help Montana business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps clients pick the right platform for their ecommerce websites. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Montana ecommerce development services? WebCitz usually gets Montana ecommerce web development projects done in 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your Montana ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous e-commerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Montana Ecommerce Websites

Efforts to design an e-commerce website in Montana should follow a formal process. Here is our process for designing Montana ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Montana company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. Having everyone involved in the ecommerce project voice their opinion helps minimize confusion.

Kickoff Discussion

When you're ready to move forward with our ecommerce development company for your Montana 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 Mockups or Template Selection

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

Ecommerce Web Design

The development phase of your Montana ecommerce build will be the longest. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! Throughout this process, you'll have a password-protected development website to visit so you can follow along and provide comments as necessary.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

As soon as the ecommerce website development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. We'll schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Montana e-commerce storefront once you're comfortable managing it. You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been improving this Montana ecommerce web design process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout the United States!

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!

What can I say about this company? These people that work there? Unbelievable!! It doesn't matter when or why you call, they will help you.

But if I do call they actually take care of it right then. ... great bunch of guys...Southwest Radio Church really appreciates you!!
