The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Bozeman Website

To recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Bozeman e-commerce company we will need to talk with you about your website's objectives. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Bozeman-area websites.

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

Bozeman WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

In Bozeman, we help startups and e-commerce businesses 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 internally developed WooCommerce theme, based on Understrap, which is a great starting point for a custom-designed Bozeman WooCommerce web site. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for Bozeman e-commerce clients.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Bozeman 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 Bozeman who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. 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.
  • Most Bozeman businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. 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 Bozeman websites running Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

Bozeman 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 developer in Bozeman.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce web designers like Shopify:

  • Bozeman merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. If you want to run an ecommerce business in Bozeman, you don't have to worry about constantly updating plugins or software.
  • When Bozeman web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality with Shopify is higher than with 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 Bozeman businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing is Shopify. 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

If you are unhappy with the performance, functionality, or conversion rate of your Bozeman ecommerce website it might be time to think about a redesign or rehaul of your website.

You should approach Bozeman e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. 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.

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

  • Where can people find your Bozeman e-commerce site? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. It's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Bozeman website.
  • What do customers think about your Bozeman website? Making big changes to your website is okay if your online shoppers aren't happy. If your conversion rates are already good, maybe you should consider being more conservative with design changes.
  • Are you migrating e-commerce platforms? If so, understand the new Bozeman 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 Bozeman Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building out an ecommerce website in Bozeman can be an expensive project. Before hiring a local ecommerce web developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Bozeman ecommerce website development 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 Bozeman ecommerce website design projects:

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

Our Montana ecommerce web design services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! If your Bozeman 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 Bozeman Ecommerce Web Designer

There are numerous questions to ask your Bozeman ecommerce website design firm before making a hiring decision. 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 Bozeman ecommerce web development service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce website development questions we get from businesses in and around Montana:

  • Are you outsourcing ecommerce web design? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers.
  • If you change URLs, do you set up 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We create 301 redirects for Bozeman ecommerce web developments that have different URL structures.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Bozeman WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Bozeman ecommerce website development.
  • Do you help Bozeman business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps Bozeman clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • What's the turnaround time for Bozeman ecommerce web design services? WebCitz usually gets most Bozeman-area ecommerce sites up and running within 3-4 months, but it can take up to 9-12 months for really complicated ones.
  • Have you seen your Bozeman ecommerce website designer's past work or recent reviews? Check out our ecommerce development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Bozeman Ecommerce Websites

You should expect Bozeman ecommerce web development companies to have a formal process for how a new e-commerce website will be developed. Here is our process for designing Bozeman ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Bozeman 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 Conversation

If you're happy with our ecommerce web design agency for your Bozeman website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff 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 Search

We'll start with mockups for your Bozeman ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. 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. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your Bozeman ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest part of your Bozeman ecommerce build will be the development. 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.

Training & Launch

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

We've been optimizing our Montana ecommerce website 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 United States!

Additional Services for Your Bozeman Ecommerce Web Design Project

Corey was absolutely amazing in helping me with my issue. He was encouraging as we worked through things that to me were huge, but he made them seem small. Will definitely use WebCitz again!!!

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!!

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!
