South Dakota Ecommerce Website Design Consultants

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

Developing an effective ecommerce website in South Dakota starts with understanding the nature of your e-commerce business. We take the time to discuss with you a number of topics, including your history running your South Dakota 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.

Knowing this lets us make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your South Dakota-based business. If you're creating a new South Dakota ecommerce website or redesigning an old one, you have to pick the right platform for your needs.

You need to understand your business goals before you start an ecommerce website design project in South Dakota. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your South Dakota online store, whether you use our ecommerce development agency or a different website developer. We'll use this information to set expectations on your South Dakota ecommerce web design so you get the best website for your storefront.

Even after your South Dakota ecommerce website is designed, we'll be here to help with optional South Dakota digital marketing and website maintenance!

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your South Dakota Website

If your South Dakota 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 South Dakota-area websites.

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

South Dakota WooCommerce Web Development Services

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

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce companies get started with WooCommerce in South Dakota or other parts of the United States.

These are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers like WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for South Dakota web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for South Dakota WooCommerce websites. Theme development for South Dakota e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify.
  • If your South Dakota business already has a WordPress site, we recommend WooCommerce. If you are happy with the look and feel of your content-based website, why invest the time and money into redesigning that website just to add ecommerce?
  • We recommend WooCommerce for South Dakota web companies who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. 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 South Dakota 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. However, there are apps for South Dakota web companies running Shopify that offer product configurators.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

South Dakota Shopify Web Design Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. If you want to run an e-commerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in South Dakota.

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

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

  • We recommend Shopify for South Dakota merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in South Dakota without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When South Dakota 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.
  • Shopify is a great option for South Dakota 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.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

You should approach South Dakota e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. For instance, you may lose search rankings and online sales if your South Dakota ecommerce web developer 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 South Dakota. You should consider these factors when redesigning South Dakota ecommerce sites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in South Dakota. 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. Maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and content throughout the development of your South Dakota website.
  • What do customers think about your South Dakota website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. 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. The way you enter products, fulfill orders, update customer information, and go through the checkout will be different.

Determine Goals for Your South Dakota Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in South Dakota. Before hiring a local ecommerce website developer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the South Dakota ecommerce web design service. 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 South Dakota ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your South Dakota-based company.
  • Upgrade an old South Dakota 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 make shopping faster and the website more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such South Dakota ecommerce development solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! We can help you put together a list of goals for your South Dakota e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your South Dakota Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce web development firm in South Dakota. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. 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 South Dakota ecommerce web design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce website design questions a lot by South Dakota e-commerce businesses:

  • Is your ecommerce development outsourced? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce web development services because we have our own team of Shopify and WooCommerce developers.
  • When the URLs change, do you create 301 redirects? While WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, sometimes it can't be done. We do create 301 redirects for South Dakota ecommerce website developments that will have a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For South Dakota WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom South Dakota ecommerce web design.
  • Can you help South Dakota business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz does help South Dakota clients select the platform for their ecommerce website. The answer is typically dependent upon the web design and ecommerce functionality requirements.
  • Can you tell me how fast South Dakota ecommerce development works? WebCitz usually gets South Dakota 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 South Dakota ecommerce website developer's past work or recent reviews? Check out our ecommerce web design portfolio, ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews!

How We Design the Best South Dakota Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your South Dakota company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. By having everyone involved in the ecommerce project speak up, you'll minimize confusion and project delays.

Kickoff Discussion

If you're happy with our ecommerce website design firm for your South Dakota website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff call! There will be a chance for everyone involved in the project to have a discussion about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each stage of the design, and how long the turnaround time will be for each phase.

Design Mockups or Template Search

If your future South Dakota ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. 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 South Dakota ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

The longest phase of your South Dakota ecommerce build will be the development process. This includes everything for data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and much more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Website Launch (Plus Website Training!)

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 South Dakota e-commerce site! We can even share a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been optimizing our South Dakota 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 the United States!

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.
