With these uncertain times ahead and fewer people leaving the house, it might just be the perfect time to think about moving your business to an online platform. Have you been asking yourself the following questions:
Do I need an ecommerce website for my business?
Online shopping is continuously becoming more popular and a website is commonly becoming the first point of contact a potential customer has with a brand. If you don’t have a website when a customer searches for you online then that could result in a lost sale for your business.
Can I build my own ecommerce website?
Shopify is a commonly used platform when building an ecommerce website and while you could attempt to build a website yourself, customers will likely leave a website that looks unprofessional, unsecure or doesn’t function correctly. This is why it is so important to ensure you have a well designed, secure, and highly functional website. Start your free Shopify trial by clicking here.
Why build an ecommerce website with Shopify?
Shopify is a complete ecommerce platform that provides a user-friendly shopping cart solution to sell, ship, and manage your products. Once your website is up and running you can easily manage your website yourself, update your products and track your inventory, payments, and shipping all in one place.
How long does a Shopify website take to build?
This depends on experience, knowledge and the complexity of the website. If you were to attempt to build a website yourself you would be looking at a few months of work for the initial set up. If you were to employ the help of a web design company then you could have it up and running in a week, giving you more time to make those sales!
Why use a web design company?
At Design Garage we see the impacts of a poor performing website where a client has tried to create a website themselves and then approached us to clean up the mess. If your website isn’t functioning correctly this will impact your Google ranking and you will get a high bounce rate of customers leaving your website. Digitally you can’t just win someone over with a friendly personality and if a customer doesn’t trust your website then that will have a negative impact on your brand and sales.
There is more to a website then just what it looks like, a web design company will analyse the direction of your brand, research your target market and determine how to create your point of difference. The goal is to establish a web presence that aligns with your brand, style and meets the functionality required by your business.
How can Design Garage help?
We understand the importance of a high-functioning website for the growth of your company and care about the success of your business as much as you do. As experienced web designers and developers, we can customise your website and take it to the next level and we don’t leave you once the website is done! We provide training (so you know how it all works) and ongoing technical support for issues you may not be able to fix yourself, allowing you to focus on the important things like building your successful business.
