Now, we don’t want to scare you too much, but we bring this up because there’s a point that desperately needs to be driven home: When it comes to advanced e-commerce sites, the more you put in, the more you get out… There, that wasn’t so bad.
The cost of e-commerce website development depends on a variety of factors, including the size of your business and your desired features. Some of the costs to consider are platform and content management system fees, design and coding, hosting, and other expenses, all of which we offer. The cost of e-commerce site development should be calculated before any work begins so that you can budget accordingly and avoid overpaying for unnecessary services.
And we’ll help you do this. All of it. You’re not alone, and you certainly don’t have to feel that way. At LeftLane Media, we value transparency as much as collaboration.
Creating an Online Store
When developing your e-commerce website, we’ll help you create a clear plan for how the site will function and what features it will include. This includes what pages it will have, whether it will have an automated checkout process or a manual one, and how it will be organized and structured.
Having a well-designed site can boost your conversion rates and keep your customers engaged (They’ll come back for more). The design should be intuitive, appealing, and user-friendly. A good design should communicate your goals and inspire trust in your brand.
As always, a fast-loading website is a must for any e-commerce site. If your site takes a long time to load, you risk losing customers and damaging your brand reputation. Our development team automatically optimizes your website for speed and performance which is guaranteed to improve conversions.
Let’s Talk About the Fun Stuff
Once our plan of action is created and work starts, there’s still more to do. Thankfully, it’s the fun stuff. Sure, you could figure this out on your own, but we’d like to help:
- Product Photography: The quality of your product photos can make or break your e-commerce website. Having high-resolution images will help you stand out from the competition. In addition, the quality of the product photos will affect your website’s ranking in search engine results.
- Creating Dedicated Product Pages: It’s crucial to have separate pages for each product that you sell. This will help with search engine optimization and allow your customers to access the specific products they’re looking for without navigating through the entire website.
- Adding a Search Bar: A search bar allows your customers to find items by using keywords, categories, or other search parameters. This will increase your search engine ranking and drive more traffic to your website.
- Integrated Payment Methods: It’s important to have a variety of options for customers to pay, such as credit cards, PayPal, and Stripe. This can help you expand your business and increase your bottom line.
Embedded Analytics and Reporting: It is crucial to have an analytics dashboard to keep track of your business’s progress and provide a real-time view of what’s working and what’s not. This will help you make better-informed decisions about your marketing strategy.
