Pricing for Salem, NH Ecommerce Web Design Services

The cost of our ecommerce web design services is based on the amount of time you can afford to allocate toward the development of your online store. If you are on a tight budget, we recommend you look at a template-based ecommerce website to save money. Alternatively, if customization and performance are of high priority, you could instead consider a from-scratch custom ecommerce website that starts with a design mockup.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Salem Website

If your Salem 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 Salem website.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce development services in Salem, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Salem WooCommerce Website Design Services

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

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Salem 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. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for Salem WooCommerce web designs. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for Salem e-commerce clients.
  • If your Salem 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 Salem who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. Alternatively, Shopify has 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 Salem businesses that require a product builder. 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. However, there are apps for Salem web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Salem Shopify Web Development Services

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

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

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers often recommend Shopify:

  • We recommend Shopify for Salem merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Salem without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • For Salem web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, 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.
  • Shopify is a great option for Salem 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.

5 Ways to Grow Your Ecommerce Business

Salem Ecommerce Developers

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

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

  • You have an e-commerce site in Salem. How do people get there? 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 Salem website.
  • What do customers think of your Salem website? Making big changes to your website is okay if your online shoppers aren't happy. Consider being more conservative with design changes if your conversion rates are already good.
  • Are you migrating e-commerce platforms? 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 Salem Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Salem. Make a list of the things you want your Salem 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. We've seen these goals for Salem ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online store for a new Salem business.
  • Upgrade an old Salem e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • 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.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

Our New Hampshire ecommerce web development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your Salem e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Salem Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website development firm in Salem. 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. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Salem ecommerce development service starts up. Here are a few of the ecommerce web development questions we get from businesses in and around New Hampshire:

  • Is your ecommerce website development outsourced? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce web design services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We create 301 redirects for Salem ecommerce website designs that have different URL structures.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Salem WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Salem ecommerce development.
  • Can you help Salem 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.
  • Can you tell me how fast Salem ecommerce web development works? WebCitz typically completes most Salem-area ecommerce website development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Does your Salem ecommerce web designer have a design portfolio or client reviews? Check out our ecommerce development portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best Salem Ecommerce Websites

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

1.) Multiple Discovery Calls

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

2.) Kickoff Discussion

If you're happy with our ecommerce web development firm for your Salem 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.

3.) Design Mockups or Template Selection

We'll start with mockups for your Salem ecommerce website design if it's built in WordPress with WooCommerce or if your budget allows a custom design built in Shopify. This helps everyone agree on the look and feel of your website before an e-commerce developer starts working on it. Alternatively, if you selected a template-based approach within Shopify, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your Salem ecommerce site.

4.) Ecommerce Web Design

The development phase of your Salem ecommerce build will be the longest. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

5.) Website Training & Launch

Once the ecommerce web design project is close to completion, we'll start working with you to provide any necessary training. If you're comfortable with managing the e-commerce site, let's schedule a time that works for everyone to launch your Salem e-commerce site! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been working on our New Hampshire ecommerce website design process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout United States!

Additional Services for Your Salem Ecommerce Web Design Project

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

  • Let our digital marketers help you rank your ecommerce products higher in Salem search results, or nationwide.
  • We've got a PPC advertising team who can handle any campaign type on Google Ads, Facebook Ads, and Bing Ads.

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!

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
