Our Tampa Web Services

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

1.) Template-Based Website Designs

Looking for a low-cost site? Your Tampa business might be interested in a template website!

Rather than creating design mockups and building a custom template for your website, we can find and share several website templates that closely align with the look and feel you want.

Rest assured, you'll have the opportunity to select the template you prefer, which we will then 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 price for a template website design is around $3,750, and it can be finished in as little as a few weeks. For template ecommerce website developments, the cost and turnaround will be higher.

2.) Custom Web Designs

As a custom website development agency, we prefer to start every Tampa website 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 developers 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 web development team will merge it into a custom template. A custom theme offers numerous advantages, such as a streamlined codebase that typically results in improved page performance and usability, since it was created exclusively for your Tampa small business.

The starting cost for a custom web design is about $9,500, and it can be ready in just a few weeks. For custom ecommerce website developments, 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 web maintenance services.

Web maintenance is a reactive support service that connects you with a website developer or ecommerce website developer on our team who can fix nearly any website issue.

Here are a few examples of website requests that might need Tampa website maintenance services:

  • Upgrading your website platform to the latest version.
  • Updating apps, themes, and plugins.
  • Adding new pages whenever you release something new.
  • Staying fresh with new blog content.
  • Rearranging your Tampa website's navigation menu.
  • Making your pages faster to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Making backups of your website's files and databases.
  • Making your website look and feel better.
  • Fixing Google Search Console coverage glitches.
  • Improving technical SEO by adding structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing a solution to any other website problem.
  • Importing / exporting ecommerce product data.

The following are the most common goals we see for Tampa website development and ecommerce web development projects:

  1. To build a website or online store for a new business in Tampa.
  2. To redesign an existing website or storefront into a fresh web development to give a better first impression to visitors.

Picking a Platform for Your Tampa, FL Website

The foundation of your Tampa website is the content management system you choose for the design project. Even though our top website designers and ecommerce website developers 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

With more than 40% market share in Florida and the country, WordPress is simply the most popular open-source website platform.

We specialize in WordPress not just because it's the most popular CMS platform in Tampa, but just because it's the best for a customized website development service. The following reasons make WordPress the most scalable platform for designing websites, despite the fact there are alternatives for your project.

  • 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.
  • With WordPress, you should easily be able to find a local Tampa website designer to help you with your project.

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 Tampa.

We've helped startups and existing ecommerce companies develop great WooCommerce stores in Tampa 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.
  • If your Tampa business website runs on WordPress, we typically recommend WooCommerce. When you like the look and feel of your content-based website, why spend time and money remaking it just to add ecommerce?
  • We often recommend WooCommerce for Tampa businesses who prefer open-source software. You don't have to pay a monthly fee to use WordPress or WooCommerce. If you want to use Shopify, you'll need a paid subscription for the platform and their apps are often more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • WooCommerce is good if you're in an industry that's not accepted by Shopify.

WooCommerce Development

3.) Shopify

Shopify is the most popular SaaS ecommerce platform. If you want to run an ecommerce website in Tampa, you'll probably need a Shopify web designer.

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

Our ecommerce website developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • We often recommend Shopify for Tampa merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you don't have to worry about hosting configuration or platform updates.
  • For Tampa web companies that don't need a lot of custom features, we often recommend Shopify. It's typically more expensive to develop custom functionality in Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, you'll find getting Shopify apps often require monthly subscriptions versus one-time purchases for WordPress plugins.
  • The best ecommerce platform for Tampa businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround 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 Tampa, FL Website Developer

There are several important questions to ask your prospective Tampa web design or ecommerce website development firm before proceeding with your project. Here are some of the most common ones we get asked before starting a custom web design or ecommerce web development project:

  • Does the web developer outsource the work? Because we have our own internal team of USA website designers, we don't outsource custom website design or ecommerce development projects to other companies.
  • Will the web designers create 301 redirects to help search rankings? We are careful when it comes to broken URLs, so we plan to implement 301 redirects during any Tampa website makeover project.
  • Does the web developer plan to create a mockup, or provide theme samples, before building the site? We always start with a design mockup for Tampa custom website design projects to ensure everyone understands the vision for the site. However, if you choose a template-based website design service we will instead show you template samples before we begin.
  • What CMS platforms is your Tampa website developer experienced in? We prefer WordPress because of its popularity, scalability, and ease of use. For ecommerce sites, we recommend WooCommerce or Shopify.
  • How fast is your Tampa 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!
