Ecommerce Websites

What is ecommerce? It’s the fancy name for having an online shop. You may want to sell physical products on your website or downloads.

With over 20 years experience working for High Street Retailers, we know how important it is to have a good online shop.

If you would like a new ecommerce website or need help with your current website, we can help.

WordPress or Shopify?

We love WordPress and we are a certified Shopify Partner.

Which one is best?

This depends on your business and what you want to achieve with your website.  We’ll listen to your requirements and advise if the website should be built using WordPress (with WooCommerce) or Shopify.


We normally start with an exploratory phone call to find out a little bit more about your business and what type of products you are selling. We’ll find out if you have bought your domain name and if you have organised hosting already. Don’t worry if you haven’t, we can organise this for you. This is your chance to ask us questions.


Based on this call, we’ll send you a proposal detailing the work we’ll do for you along with a confirmed price and a timeline for completion.

We’ll take time to get to know you and your business. We’ll ask lots of questions so we can find out what makes you unique.

We’ll research your competitors, we’ll look at where they rank in Google, what their customers are saying about them.

Most importantly, we get to know your customers. We look at their motivations for buying from you and how we can persuade them to buy from you.

Bespoke Design

We start by working on the basic structure of each page and send these to you for approval.

Once we’ve agreed on the structure, we’ll start the design work. Every website we create is unique, we want you to stand out from everyone else. We’ll send the Home Page design for initial approval. Following this, you’ll receive mockups for every main page, with an example of a product and category page. You’ll be able to see how your website will look on mobiles, tablets and computers.

If you see something you don’t like, now is the time to say, we’ll allow 3 iterations of design changes before incurring extra costs.

Website Build

Once the design is agreed, we get on with the technical stuff and build your website. We’ll set up 10 products for you to ensure that the shop is functioning.

We’ll ensure your website is fast and is optimised for mobile devices.

We’ll install a backup system for you (if using WordPress).

We’ll thoroughly test your website in all major browsers across a variety of different devices. Once we are all happy, your website can go live! Once live, we give you 30 days support to iron out any issues.

We’ll provide training on how to add more products and categories.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

We don’t believe in handing over a website unless it is optimised for search engines.

We’ll ensure every page has meta titles and meta descriptions and every image has an alt tag. In our competitor research, we will have identified keywords and will have given you advice to include these on relevant pages.

We’ll set up Google Analytics, Bing Webmaster and Google Search Console for you to use along with Google My Business.

We’ll show you how to add meta titles and meta descriptions for all your products.
