Our South Bend Web Services

We are a one-stop website design firm with a large group of onsite web designers and ecommerce web developers. Our web development team is separated into two groups, each focusing on either template or custom web design services.

1.) Template-Based Web Designs

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

Rather than designing mockups and developing a custom theme for your website, we can search for a few website templates that match the look and feel you want in your next website or online store.

Rest assured, you'll have the opportunity to select the theme you prefer, which we will then install on your development site.

From there, we'll customize the template to match your color scheme and then set up your web pages.

The starting price for a templated website development is about $3,750, and it can be ready in just a few weeks. For templated ecommerce web developments, the cost and turnaround will be higher.

2.) Custom Web Developments

As a custom web design company, we like to start every South Bend web development service from scratch.

By utilizing this approach, our team can produce customized mockups that align with your brand guidelines. This will give you a glimpse into your website's look and feel prior to the start of website development work. In addition, these mockups can undergo updates until you're pleased with the design concept, enabling you to advance with certainty.

Once you've given your approval for the design mockup, our website development team will merge it into a custom theme. There are many benefits to a custom template, including a simplified codebase that often has better site speed and usability since it was developed specifically for your South Bend 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 South Bend small business access to a web developer or ecommerce developer who can solve nearly any website problem you have.

Here are some examples of site requests that South Bend website support companies might help with:

  • Updating your website platform.
  • Keeping apps, themes and plugins updated.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new products or services.
  • Freshening your blog with new content.
  • Rearranging your South Bend site's navigation menu.
  • Improve your page speed to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Making backups of your website's files and databases.
  • Changing the look and feel of your website.
  • Fixing Google Search Console coverage glitches.
  • Improving technical SEO by adding structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing solutions to other website concerns.
  • Importing / exporting ecommerce product data.

Picking a Platform for Your South Bend, IN Website

Your South Bend site is likely powered by a content management system, or CMS. While our top website designers and ecommerce website designers are well-versed in multiple platforms, we prefer to only provide website development services in WordPress, and ecommerce development services in Shopify or WooCommerce.

1.) WordPress

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

WordPress is the most popular CMS in South Bend, but it's also the best in terms of overall performance and scalability of a customized web design. The following reasons make WordPress the most scalable platform for designing websites, despite the fact there are alternatives for your project.

  • WordPress has thousands of third-party plugins available that can provide additional functionality for your website.
  • There's a huge community of WordPress contributors helping to make the platform more stable, secure, and scalable.
  • WordPress is popular among professional web development agencies and freelance website designers, making it possible to find a local South Bend web developer to work with you.

5 Steps to a Winning Website Project

2.) WooCommerce

If you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web designer in South Bend.

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

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce developers tend to recommend 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 South Bend small businesses with an existing WordPress website. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • Most organizations in South Bend who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce. Alternatively, Shopify has monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce 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 in South Bend, you'll probably need a Shopify web designer.

Our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for online companies in and around Indiana.

Our ecommerce developers love Shopify for these reasons:

  • We often recommend Shopify for South Bend merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in South Bend without worrying about hosting setups or platform updates.
  • We often recommend Shopify for South Bend 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 that really add up, in comparison to the less expensive WordPress plugin options.
  • The best ecommerce platform for South Bend businesses 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 South Bend, IN Web Developer

You should ask a few questions of your prospective South Bend web design or ecommerce web development firm before starting a project. Let's go over some of the most common ones we get asked before starting a custom web design or ecommerce website design project:

  • Does the website developer outsource the project? Because we've got our own team of USA web designers and ecommerce website developers, we don't outsource.
  • Will the web developers make 301 redirects to help preserve search placements? We are careful when it comes to broken URLs, so we plan to implement 301 redirects during any South Bend website redesign project.
  • Does the web developer plan to create a mockup, or provide template samples, before starting the website? We find it is easier to create a design mockup for South Bend website projects to help everyone understand the design direction before the website build gets too far along. However, that is only viable if you choose a custom website design service. If you opt for a theme-based website, we'll provide several template samples for you to review instead.
  • Which CMS platform does your South Bend web designer plan to use on your website project? Because of its ease of use, popularity, and scalability, we prefer WordPress. For ecommerce sites, we recommend WooCommerce or Shopify.
  • How fast can your South Bend website development team turn things around? Most of our custom web design projects are ready in two to three months, but template websites are closer to three to four weeks. Ecommerce projects usually require more time.
  • Does the website design firm have examples of creative solutions? As a comprehensive web development agency, we love a challenge! Let us know what you have for unique needs and we will be happy to assist!

David Wurst and WebCitz have been a great hosting company to work with for over 10 years. They provide exceptional service and knowledge with their customers and always get it done immediately. I will never work with any other company.

WebCitz designed our Alo Health website and did such a great job of walking us step-by-step through the process, knowing the tech world was not a strength of ours. We love that we are able to change content whenever we want, but if we run into problems, they are a quick email away. They have been responsive, reliable and efficient. Thanks, WebCitz!

What can I say about this company? These people that work there? Unbelievable!! It doesn't matter when or why you call, they will help you. The other part of that statement is: I never have to call them! They made a web site for us that works 24/7. But if I do call they actually take care of it right then. ... great bunch of guys...Southwest Radio Church really appreciates you!!

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.
