Custom e-commerce web design is a very involved subject. E-commerce means that you will be conducting business on the internet, which carries a lot of responsibility on your website’s shoulders.
THE OFFICIAL LIST OF E-COMMERCE WEB DESIGN MUST HAVES
At the most basic level, your custom e-commerce website must have the following:
- Professional web design to ensure your brand’s image is upheld
- Easy and intuitive checkout process
- It must accept payments by credit card
- It must display your products and services in a way that conveys value
- It must be fast and search engine optimized
- It must send you, the website admin a confirmation of a new order
- It must send the buyer an order confirmation or thank you note
- It must contain all of the contact details necessary for potential buyers to contact you
- It must contain a custom user experience that gently persuades the value and sale
- It must have most of these features automated for you, especially #1-9.
HUNTING AN E-COMMERCE WEB DESIGNER
It’s really difficult to trust random strangers – it’s some sort of inheritance most of us have. It becomes even more difficult when your brand’s reputation, and perhaps all of it sales are on the line. You need the best representation of your business at the best price. More than that, you need to hire a custom e-commerce web designer that truly understands what you’re asking for and knows how to deliver it.
Unfortunately, a lot of web design companies are fly by night companies. Recently, while running a competitor analysis (a la SWOT) I ran into a business who was advertising their services on the local chamber of commerce. So, naturally, I had to check them out! When I clicked the web development company’s link on the chamber of commerce’s website – I found this!
Can you imagine if that’s the first impression people have of your business? Not to mention, these are e-commerce website developers! If you go down the road of hiring the cheapest e-commerce web designer you can find, who could not afford to maintain their web design service because it only attracted people who threw pennies at them, their true colors will eventually show, and it’s your business that’s going to be affected. Kapeesh?
When searching for an e-commerce web designer, it’s more than just an upfront cost. It’s an investment on the future of your business. E-commerce business websites are never a one-time project, as many web designers would want you to believe. It requires frequent attention, updating, monitoring, and improving. Otherwise, you may end up looking like those web developers exuding high levels of professionalism on their security-warning-for-a-homepage.
