Our Lakeland Web Services

We are a complete website design firm with a large staff of internal web designers and ecommerce web developers. Our web development team is broken into two groups, each specializing in either template or custom web design services.

1.) Template-Based Web Designs

Searching for an affordable website option? Your Lakeland business might be interested in a template website!

Instead of creating design mockups and developing your website in a custom theme, we can hand-pick several website templates to share with you that closely match your desired look and feel.

But don't worry - you'll have the option to choose your most liked template for us to install on your development site.

Next, we will modify the theme to use your color scheme and then add in your web pages.

The starting cost for a template web design is around $3,750, and it can be finished in as little as a few weeks. For template ecommerce website developments, the price and turnaround will be higher.

2.) Custom Web Designs

As a custom website design firm, we love to begin every Lakeland web design service from scratch.

Our team can create tailor-made mockups that adhere to your brand's unique specifications, providing a preview of your website's aesthetics before our web designers begin their work. These mockups can be altered to your satisfaction, allowing you to finalize the design concept and proceed with confidence.

Once you've given your approval for the design mockup, our website development team will merge it into a custom theme. A custom template offers numerous advantages, such as a streamlined codebase that typically results in improved site speed and usability, since it was created exclusively for your Lakeland business.

The starting cost for a custom web development is about $9,500, and it can be ready in just a few weeks. For custom ecommerce web designs, the price and turnaround will be higher.

3.) Website Maintenance

After the launch of your website, or if you have one, you might be interested in website maintenance services.

We view web maintenance to be a reactive support service that provides your Lakeland small business access to a web developer or ecommerce developer who can solve nearly any website problem you have.

Here are a few examples of site requests that might need Lakeland website support services:

  • Updating your website platform.
  • Updating apps, themes, and plugins.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new information.
  • Freshening your blog with new content.
  • Rearranging your Lakeland website's navigation menu.
  • Improve your site performance to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Backing up your website's files and databases.
  • Making your website look and feel better.
  • Troubleshooting Google Search Console coverage concerns.
  • Enhancing technical SEO with structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Investigating and solving any other website issue.

Picking a Platform for Your Lakeland, FL Website

A content management system, or CMS, is what powers your Lakeland website. Even though our top website designers and ecommerce web designers are well-versed in multiple platforms, we only use WordPress for new content-based website projects. For ecommerce websites we use Shopify or WooCommerce.

1.) WordPress

More than 40% of websites in Florida and the rest of the country are powered by WordPress.

Our website design firm chooses to specialize in WordPress not only because it is the most popular CMS platform in Lakeland, but also because it is simply the best overall. Although there are dozens of content management systems to choose from, we've found WordPress to be the most scalable for designing websites.

  • You can add new functionality to your website through third-party WordPress plugins. Not everything has to be built from scratch!
  • WordPress has a huge community of contributors that work together to improve its security, stability, and functionality.
  • WordPress is popular among professional website design firms and freelance web designers, making it possible to find a local Lakeland website designer to work with you.

5 Steps to a Winning Website Project

2.) WooCommerce

If you want an ecommerce website using WordPress, you'll likely need a WooCommerce web designer in Lakeland.

We've helped startups and existing ecommerce companies develop great WooCommerce stores in Lakeland or other parts of United States.

Here's why our ecommerce web developers love WooCommerce:

  • If you need a custom theme with complex functionality, but have a limited budget, we often recommend WooCommerce. This is mostly due to custom theme and functionality work being cheaper in WooCommerce.
  • We often recommend WooCommerce for Lakeland businesses with an existing WordPress website. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money remaking it just to add ecommerce?
  • Most businesses in Lakeland who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. As an alternative, Shopify has monthly fees and their apps are often more expensive than WooCommerce or WordPress plugins.
  • If you're in an industry that's not supported by Shopify, try WooCommerce.

WooCommerce Development

3.) Shopify

Shopify is the most popular hosted ecommerce platform. If you want to run an ecommerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Lakeland.

We can design a website for your online business in or around Florida that runs on the Shopify platform.

Here are some reasons our ecommerce web developers like Shopify:

  • For Lakeland merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we often recommend Shopify. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Lakeland without the hassle of hosting configurations or platform updates.
  • For Lakeland web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we often recommend Shopify. The cost of developing custom functionality within Shopify is often higher than in WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • The best ecommerce platform for Lakeland organizations that rely heavily on fast delivery times for development and marketing is Shopify. It is often faster with Shopify to test out new products, themes, apps, or ideas.

Questions to Ask a Lakeland, FL Web Designer

You should ask your prospective Lakeland website development or ecommerce web development company several questions before you get started. Here are some of the most common ones we get asked before starting a custom web development or ecommerce development project:

  • Does the website designer outsource the site project? Because we've got our own team of USA website designers and ecommerce website designers, we don't outsource.
  • Do the website developers plan to create 301 redirects to help with SEO? For any Lakeland web design project that will replace an existing website, we plan out 301 redirects early in the project.
  • Does the website designer plan to create a mockup, or provide theme samples, before building the site? We always start with a design mockup for Lakeland custom web design projects to ensure everyone understands the vision for the website. However, if you choose a theme-based web design service we will instead show you template samples before we begin.
  • Which CMS platform does your Lakeland web designer plan to use on your website project? Due to its popularity, scalability, and ease of use, we love WordPress. For ecommerce sites, we recommend WooCommerce or Shopify.
  • How fast is your Lakeland web design service? It takes us about 2-3 months to complete custom web development projects, and 3-4 weeks to complete template websites. Ecommerce developments often take longer.
  • Does the website design firm have examples of creative solutions? As a comprehensive web development agency, we like unique design and functionality requirements! Just let us know what you have in mind and we will be happy to help!
