Vermont Ecommerce Website Design Consultants

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

Knowing how your Vermont 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 Vermont 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.

We can make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Vermont-based online business based on this information. The selection of the best platform for your specific needs is critical when developing a new Vermont ecommerce website or redesigning an existing Vermont e-commerce website.

You need to understand your business goals before you start an ecommerce web design project in Vermont. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your Vermont online store, whether you use our ecommerce development company or a different web developer. It will help set expectations throughout the Vermont ecommerce web design so you get the best website.

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

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Vermont Website

If your Vermont 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 works for all Vermont businesses.

To deliver exceptional ecommerce web development services in Vermont, we have separate development teams for WooCommerce projects than for Shopify and BigCommerce projects. This gives our ecommerce website developers the chance to specialize in particular development environments to provide expert advice and help.

Vermont WooCommerce Web Design Services

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

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

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

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Vermont web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. Based on Understrap, our own WooCommerce theme is a great starting point for Vermont WooCommerce web designs. Theme development within Shopify or BigCommerce is often more expensive for Vermont e-commerce clients.
  • If your Vermont business already has a WordPress site, 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.
  • The web companies in Vermont 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 and BigCommerce have high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • For Vermont businesses that need a product builder, we recommend WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. Don't worry though, there are third-party apps for Vermont websites running BigCommerce or Shopify that need a product configurator.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify or BigCommerce, try WooCommerce.

Vermont Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular SaaS e-commerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify web designer in Vermont.

With our Shopify web development company, we can design a website for a new or existing business in Vermont that runs on the Shopify platform.

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

  • For Vermont merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Vermont without constantly updating plugins and software.
  • When Vermont 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 versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a great option for Vermont e-commerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. 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.

Vermont BigCommerce Web Development Services

Because of its API, BigCommerce is probably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Vermont. To run an ecommerce website using BigCommerce you will likely be looking for a BigCommerce web developer in Vermont.

Our BigCommerce web development team has experience helping startup and existing Vermont-area ecommerce businesses build out and improve their online websites.

Here are a few reasons our e-commerce website developers often recommend BigCommerce:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Vermont interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. The benefit of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about regularly installing updates, like you'd find with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can implement "headless e-commerce" for your Vermont storefront, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in Vermont ecommerce websites.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for Vermont merchants who want a hosted ecommerce platform, but don't like Shopify.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

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

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

Vermont ecommerce website redesign starts with a thorough review of your ecommerce business to understand the big picture. Here are some of the important factors to consider when redesigning Vermont ecommerce websites:

  • You have an e-commerce site in Vermont. 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's also good to keep the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Vermont website.
  • What do customers think about your Vermont website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. 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. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Vermont Ecommerce Web Design Service

You can pay a lot of money to build an ecommerce site in Vermont. You should make a list of the goals you'd like to see achieved by a Vermont 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. Here are some of the goals we've seen for Vermont ecommerce website design projects:

  • To build out an online website for a new Vermont e-commerce venture.
  • Upgrade an old Vermont 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.
  • Improving the shopping experience by making it faster and more responsive.
  • To fix web accessibility problems for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such Vermont ecommerce web development solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! Let us help you put together a list of goals for your ecommerce website if your Vermont e-commerce company needs help!

Questions to Ask Your Vermont Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask plenty of questions before hiring an ecommerce website development firm in Vermont. 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. If you do this now, you'll get an idea of what to expect in future communication. Here are some common ecommerce development questions we get asked by e-commerce businesses in and around Vermont:

  • Is your ecommerce web development outsourced? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, 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 do create 301 redirects for Vermont ecommerce web designs that will have a different URL structure.
  • Do you make design mockups before starting a new ecommerce website design? WebCitz creates design mockups for all Vermont WooCommerce developments, but we only create a design mockup for Shopify and BigCommerce projects that have a higher budget for a fully custom Vermont ecommerce website design.
  • Can you help Vermont business owners choose the right platform for their e-commerce site? WebCitz helps Vermont clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • Can you tell me how fast Vermont ecommerce development works? WebCitz typically completes most Vermont-area ecommerce web development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Your Vermont ecommerce website developer should have a ecommerce portfolio or client reviews. WebCitz has an ecommerce web design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Vermont Ecommerce Websites

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

Multiple Discovery Calls

There are usually multiple discovery calls to learn more about your Vermont company, your history with ecommerce, your development expectations, and your future plans. This helps ensure everyone working on your project has an opportunity to voice their opinion, which goes a long way to minimizing confusion throughout the ecommerce project.

Kickoff Discussion

If you're happy with our ecommerce development company for your Vermont 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

If your future Vermont ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. 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 and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you select a theme for your Vermont ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Design

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

Website Training & Launch

When the ecommerce website development project is nearly done, we'll start working with you on training. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Vermont e-commerce storefront! You can even get a checklist for launching the ecommerce site if you're interested!

We've been optimizing our Vermont 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!

Additional Services for Your Vermont Ecommerce Web Design Project

The development of the website is only one part of a successful ecommerce storefront in Vermont. Here are a few optional extras that will help you get the most from your Vermont e-commerce website:

  • We have an on-site video production team to help with the creation of multimedia to showcase your Vermont web-based business.
  • We've got a digital marketing and SEO team to help rank your ecommerce products higher in Vermont search results, or nationwide.
