Boston, MA Website Development Consultants

With more than 19 years of experience, we know professional web development! In this time, we've offered Boston businesses fresh web development services to help them build new websites from scratch and redesign their existing websites.

Boston has a population of 689,326, so you'll want to make sure you've got a functional, useful website to keep up with the competition.

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

Throughout the entire process, you'll be excited you chose our expert website design services for your Massachusetts web development service!

Our Boston Website Services

We are a comprehensive website development agency with a large team of in-house website designers and ecommerce web designers. Our web design team is separated into two groups, each focusing on either template or custom website design services.

1.) Template-Based Web Developments

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

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

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

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

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

2.) Custom Web Designs

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

This approach allows our team to design custom mockups specific to your branding requirements. You'll appreciate seeing the look and feel of your future website before our web developers start building the site. Best of all, those mockups can be revised until you're happy with the design concept and are ready to move forward.

Once you've given your approval for the design mockup, our website development team will merge it into a custom theme. Opting for a custom template can provide several benefits, including a simplified codebase that usually delivers enhanced page speed and usability, as it was tailored specifically for your Boston small business.

The starting price for a custom web design is $9,500, and it can be completed in as little as a few months. For custom ecommerce web 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 website support services.

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

Here are some examples of website requests that Boston web maintenance companies might help with:

  • Updating your site platform.
  • Keeping apps, themes and plugins updated.
  • Adding new web pages as you release new products or services.
  • Writing new blog content to help you stay fresh.
  • Rearranging your Boston website's navigation menu.
  • Making your pages faster to pass Google Core Web Vitals.
  • Taking backups of your website's files and databases.
  • Changing the look and feel of your website.
  • Troubleshooting Google Search Console coverage errors.
  • Enhancing technical search engine optimization with structured data, open graph tags, etc.
  • Providing solutions to other website concerns.
  • Importing / exporting ecommerce product data.

Set Goals for Your Boston, MA Website

Before proceeding with the selection of a template or custom web design company for your Boston business, it is important to understand what the goals are for your website project. The most common goals we've seen for Boston web design and ecommerce website development projects include:

  1. To build a website or online store for a new business in Boston.
  2. To give an old website or storefront a fresh look and feel to improve branding and functionality.
  3. To improve user experience, reduce bounce rates, and/or improve conversion rates.
  4. To improve the website's speed and responsiveness.
  5. To comply with ADA, WCAG, and other published guidelines that set the standards for site accessibility.
  6. To improve lead generation through design improvements.

Picking a Platform for Your Boston, MA Website

The foundation of your Boston website is the content management system you choose for the design project. While our top web developers and ecommerce developers are well-versed in multiple platforms, we prefer to only provide website design services in WordPress, and ecommerce development services in Shopify or WooCommerce.

1.) WordPress

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

Our web development agency chooses to specialize in WordPress not only because it is the most popular CMS platform in Boston, but also because it is simply the best overall. 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!
  • There's a huge community of WordPress contributors helping to make the platform more stable, secure, and scalable.
  • WordPress is popular among professional website development agencies and freelance website designers, making it possible to find a local Boston web developer to work with you.

5 Steps to a Winning Website Project

2.) WooCommerce

To run an ecommerce website using WordPress you'll likely be looking for a WooCommerce web developer in Boston.

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

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

  • We often recommend WooCommerce for Boston website design projects that require a custom designed template with complex functionality, but are working on a limited budget. This is mostly due to custom theme and functionality work being cheaper in WooCommerce.
  • If your Boston business already has a WordPress site, we often recommend WooCommerce. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money rebuilding your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • Most businesses in Boston 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.
  • We also recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify.

WooCommerce Development

3.) Shopify

Shopify is the most popular SaaS ecommerce platform. To run an ecommerce website using Shopify you will likely be searching for a Shopify website developer in Boston.

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

Here are some reasons our ecommerce website designers like Shopify:

  • For Boston merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we often recommend Shopify. With Shopify, you can run an ecommerce business in Boston without worrying about hosting setups or platform updates.
  • When Boston web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we often recommend Shopify. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • Shopify is a good option for Boston ecommerce businesses that need fast turnaround times for marketing and development. It is often faster with Shopify to test out new products, themes, apps, or ideas.

Questions to Ask a Boston, MA Website Designer

There are several important questions to ask your prospective Boston web development or ecommerce development company before proceeding with your project. Let's go over some of the most common ones we get asked before starting a custom web development or ecommerce web design project:

  • Does the web designer outsource the work? Because we've got our own team of USA website developers and ecommerce web developers, we don't outsource.
  • Do the website designers plan to create 301 redirects to help with SEO? We are careful when it comes to broken URLs, so we plan to implement 301 redirects during any Boston website refresh project.
  • Does the web designer plan to create a mockup, or provide template samples, before building the site? We find it is easier to create a design mockup for Boston site projects to help everyone understand the design direction before the website build gets too far along. However, that is only feasible if you choose a custom website development 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 Boston website 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 quick is the turnaround time for your Boston website design service? We typically complete custom web design projects in 2-3 months, and template website projects in 3-4 weeks. Ecommerce website projects typically take longer to finish.
  • Does the website design firm have examples of 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!
