When it comes to ecommerce websites, shop websites, mail order websites…. however you want to say it, we create all manner of different types. But what makes a really good ecommerce website design?
Security & Hosting
This is one of the highest in the list, as you are potentially spending money on that website. So it needs to be HTTPS secure, meaning you have the lock in the address bar, and Chrome identifies it as secure.
All our websites are https secure!
As well as this level of security though, you want to be free from any potential ‘bad guys’. So we offer a greater level of protection if you have suffered from that scenario. These options include greater FTP security (to stop bad guys getting to your server files), and Cloudflare is also available, which helps prevent attacks.
This is seen as negative stuff, but you do have to consider it if your website has had really good traffic on it in the past.
Ease of use ecommerce platform
We use WordPress for our commerce websites. over 59% of the World’s websites use this platform, so it’s rather popular! It makes the process of adding products, editing categories, and managing orders so easy. There are multiple addons you can have to make things even easier, plus we have the means to tweak codes and do custom stuff on the website. It’s open to a great many possibilities. It’s why, quite frankly, we love it.
If your website is new then you need everything to be in place at a time when it’s really important. A website might rank fairly well already, but just imagine that it’s now even better. Imagine a car that is fine, but it now has better tyres, leather seats, bigger engine, better AC, more comfy seats and so on. This is still just a car like before, but it can do so much more in a much better more comfortable way.
So the coding is improved, meaning your online shop will actually rank even better, the customer experience is improved, and you might even feel that you can do more too.
It’s really exciting. We love that moment when a client says to us “wow this is way better than we expected”.
