With more than 19 years of experience, you can trust we have professional web developers on our team! Through our cutting edge website design services, we help Davenport companies build new websites and redesign old websites.

Davenport has a population of 102,199, so you'll want to make sure you've got a functional, useful website to keep up with the competition.

In addition to UX web development, our award-winning team offers web services like digital marketing, website hosting, and web maintenance with you.

Throughout the template or custom web design process, you'll be so glad you chose us instead of an alternative Iowa website design service!

Our Davenport Website Services

We are a one-stop web design company with a large group of onsite web developers and ecommerce developers. Our website design team is broken into two groups, each specializing in either template or custom web development services.

1.) Template-Based Website Designs

Searching for an affordable website option? Your Davenport company might be interested in a template website!

Rather than designing mockups and developing a custom template 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.

But don't worry - you'll have the option to choose your favorite theme for us to 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 template-based website development is $3,750, and it can be completed in as little as a few weeks. For template-based ecommerce web developments, the cost and turnaround will be higher.

2.) Custom Web Developments

As a custom web design company, we love to begin every Davenport 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. These mockups can be altered to your satisfaction, allowing you to finalize the design concept and proceed with confidence.

Following your approval of the design mockup, our web development team will integrate it into a custom template. Opting for a custom theme can provide several benefits, including a simplified codebase that usually delivers enhanced website speed and usability, as it was tailored specifically for your Davenport organization.

The starting price for a custom website design is around $9,500, and it can be finished in as little as a few weeks. For custom ecommerce website developments, the cost 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.

We think of website maintenance as a reactive support service where we provide your Davenport business access to a website developer or ecommerce web designer who can fix just about any problem.

Here are some examples of website requests that Davenport website maintenance firms might help with:

  • Making sure your website's platform is up to date.
  • Installing app, theme or plugin updates.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new products or services.
  • Freshening your blog with new content.
  • Rearranging your Davenport site's navigation menu.
  • Making your pages faster to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Backing up your website's files and databases.
  • Changing the look and feel of your website.
  • Troubleshooting Google Search Console coverage errors.
  • Adding structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing a solution to any other website problem.
  • Importing / exporting ecommerce product data.

  1. To build a website or online store for a new business in Davenport.
  2. To give an old website or storefront a fresh look and feel to improve branding and functionality.

Picking a Platform for Your Davenport, IA Website

Your Davenport website is likely powered by a content management system, or CMS. Even though our top web 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

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

WordPress is the most popular CMS in Davenport, but it's also the best in terms of overall performance and scalability of a customized web design. Although there are dozens of content management systems to choose from, we've found WordPress to be the most scalable for designing websites.

  • WordPress has thousands of third-party plugins available that can provide additional functionality for your website.
  • WordPress has a large community of contributors helping to improve the platform's functionality, stability, and security.
  • WordPress is popular among professional web development agencies and freelance web designers, making it possible to find a local Davenport website developer 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 website developer in Davenport.

We help Davenport startups and ecommerce businesses build and launch awesome stores with WooCommerce.

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

  • We often recommend WooCommerce for Davenport web design projects that need a custom template with complex functionality, but are on a budget. This is mostly due to custom theme and functionality work being cheaper in WooCommerce.
  • If your Davenport organization already has a WordPress site, we often recommend WooCommerce. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redoing your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • WooCommerce is a good open-source option for Davenport businesses. There are no monthly fees to use 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 SaaS ecommerce platform. If you want to run an ecommerce website using Shopify, you'll need a Shopify web designer in Davenport.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce developers like Shopify:

  • Davenport merchants looking for a hosted ecommerce platform should check out Shopify. With Shopify, you don't have to worry about hosting configuration or platform updates.
  • When Davenport web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, 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.
  • We often recommend Shopify for Davenport ecommerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. It is often faster with Shopify to test out new products, themes, apps, or ideas.

Questions to Ask a Davenport, IA Website Designer

You should ask a few questions of your prospective Davenport website design or ecommerce development agency before starting a project. Here are some of the most common ones we get asked before starting a custom website design or ecommerce web design project:

  • Does the web designer outsource the work? Because we've got our own team of USA website designers and ecommerce website developers, we don't outsource.
  • Will the website designers make 301 redirects to help preserve search placements? For any Davenport website development project that will replace an existing website, we plan out 301 redirects early in the project.
  • Does the web designer plan to create a mockup, or provide template samples, before starting the website? We create design mockups for Davenport clients that choose a custom web design service, and provide template samples for customers that choose a theme-based web design service.
  • Which CMS platform does your Davenport 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 can your Davenport web design team turn things around? 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 provide creative solutions? As a comprehensive web development agency, we enjoy a design or functionality challenge! Simply reach out to set up a phone call to discuss your needs!

I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website. I had reached out to a number of website developers for help but only heard back from WebCitz and Corey got back to me within minutes!
