Ohio Ecommerce Website Design Specialists

Our ecommerce web designers have more than 18 years of experience building custom websites for Ohio-area businesses.

Knowing how your Ohio ecommerce business works is key to creating an effective ecommerce website. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your Ohio 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.

Having this knowledge allows us to make informed recommendations regarding the best e-commerce platform for your Ohio-based online business. If you're building a new Ohio ecommerce site or redesigning an existing one, choosing the right platform is key.

You need to understand your business goals before you start an ecommerce development project in Ohio. We'll help you determine the best metrics to use to gauge the success of your Ohio ecommerce web development service, regardless if you choose a local Ohio e-commerce developer or a national ecommerce website development firm. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the Ohio ecommerce development to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

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

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Ohio Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Ohio business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There isn't one e-commerce platform that works for all Ohio businesses.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce website development services in Ohio, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify projects. This allows our local ecommerce web designers to specialize in a particular development environment to provide expert advice and service.

Ohio WooCommerce Website Design Services

The most popular Ohio website content management system is WordPress. To run an ecommerce website using WordPress you will likely be looking for a WooCommerce web designer in Ohio.

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

Here's why our ecommerce website designers love 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 Ohio WooCommerce web site. Theme development within Shopify is often more expensive for Ohio e-commerce clients.
  • If your Ohio 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.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Ohio web companies who prefer open-source software. There are no monthly fees to use WordPress or WooCommerce, except the web hosting fee to keep the website online. 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 Ohio businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Ohio web companies using Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

Ohio 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 web developer in Ohio.

Our Shopify web development team has experience designing websites for new and existing businesses throughout Ohio within the Shopify platform.

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

  • We recommend Shopify for Ohio merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Ohio without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • We recommend Shopify for Ohio web companies without a lot of custom functionality requirements. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • We recommend Shopify for Ohio e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. 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

It might be time to rethink your Ohio ecommerce website if you're not happy with its performance, functionality, or conversion rate.

Every Ohio e-commerce redesign project deserves exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your Ohio ecommerce web designer forgets to create 301 redirects, drastically changes your URL structure, or reorganizes your product catalog.

Before starting Ohio e-commerce website redesign projects, we like to thoroughly review your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the things to keep in mind when redesigning Ohio ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Ohio. How do people get there? If most online sales are coming from organic search traffic it will be critical to maintain URL structures or implement 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Ohio website.
  • How do customers like your Ohio site? 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, you need to understand the new Ohio 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 Ohio Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in Ohio can be expensive. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Ohio ecommerce developer before you hire them. This will help keep you on track throughout the design of your e-commerce website, and set measurable objectives for later. The most common goals we've seen for Ohio ecommerce website design projects include:

  • To build out an online store for a new Ohio business.
  • Upgrade an old Ohio e-commerce system into a new one to improve security or functionality.
  • To redesign an existing Ohio e-commerce website in the same platform 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 Ohio ecommerce web development services have helped other businesses before, so we're excited to help with your new ecommerce website! If your Ohio 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 Ohio Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your Ohio ecommerce website development agency a lot of questions. Even though the answer is important, how it's delivered is more important. Pay attention to how receptive the sales team is to being asked detailed questions. This will provide insight into future communication as the Ohio ecommerce website design service gets started. Here are a few of the ecommerce development questions we get from businesses in and around Ohio:

  • Is your ecommerce web development outsourced? WebCitz does not outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers for your Ohio e-commerce website.
  • 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 Ohio ecommerce web designs that have different URL structures.
  • Do you create design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design project? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Ohio WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Ohio ecommerce development.
  • Are you able to help Ohio businesses choose an e-commerce platform? WebCitz helps Ohio clients choose the right ecommerce platform. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • How quick is the turnaround time for Ohio ecommerce web development services? WebCitz usually gets most Ohio-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 Ohio ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Ohio Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect Ohio ecommerce website design firms to have a formal process for how they do it. Here's how we make Ohio ecommerce websites:

Multiple Discovery Calls

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

Kickoff Discussion

If you feel confident about our ecommerce web development company for your Ohio website development, go ahead and sign the proposal, submit a down payment, and schedule your kick off 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 Ohio 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 Ohio ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Website Development

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

Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce web design project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Ohio e-commerce storefront! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been working on our Ohio ecommerce 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 the United States!

Additional Services for Your Ohio Ecommerce Web Design Project

Launching an ecommerce website in Ohio involves more than just building the site. Here are a few optional extras that will help you get the most from your Ohio e-commerce website:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help with the creation of multimedia to showcase your Ohio web-based business.

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!
