WEB DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT SERVICES

 
 

Our e-commerce website design approach

As your e-commerce website design agency, Ketchup develops tailor-made e-commerce website design solutions for many clients. We design each site to suit your bespoke requirements in terms of product options, check out facilities and payment choices. Our platform of choice is WooCommerce, although for some specialist enterprises we build e-commerce website design solutions from scratch, often using specialist software such as Magento.

 

Step 1

Tell us all about your business –  your products and services and how you want to offer these to your existing customers and/or new markets. We’ll help you choose the correct web format and e-commerce solution so that your online presence is maximised. We’ll also advise on additional SEO work to help bring visibility via the organic search engine listings.

 
 

Step 2

Once we’ve collaboratively agreed on the overall scope of your project, we will produce a site map and flat artwork and advise you as to the e-commerce options available to you. We will set out a project timeline complete with an end date. We will ensure that your product catalogue works, your imaging is coherent across your range and your descriptions are crisp and accurately written.

 
 

Step 3

We will guide you through the whole process of producing an e-commerce website. And we’ll recommend other marketing platforms where you can promote your new site in order that you squeeze the maximum marketing potential. We’ll also suggest other methods for signposting potential customers to your site so that your web traffic is optimised.

 
 

E-commerce website design with WooCommerce

As e-commerce website design specialists, we like to use WooCommerce – a flexible, open-source e-commerce website design solution built on WordPress. WooCommerce offers easy product listing, basket facilities and checkout pages and is fully customisable and extendable. All payments made are secure and shipping options are configurable.

WooCommerce integrates with Google Analytics, MailChimp and Facebook making email campaigns, data analysis and social media posting simple and easy to do.

The website development provided by the team at Ketchup did hit a few road bumps along the way, as do most developmental projects such as this, but these were all quickly resolved by the team. Good communication was maintained throughout the project and Michelle continues to support us on an ongoing basis to get the most out of our website, particularly in relation to SEO analytics and strategy.

Dufrain’s whole marketing function has been outsourced to Ketchup since late 2020. The Ketchup team fully manages our marketing strategy and digital content, as well as working closely with our PR agency. This ensures highly-effective communications are delivered at the right time via the right platforms to reach our target audiences. I’m extremely pleased with the results that they are generating.

Frequently Asked Questions

There’s lots to cover here, however a few main pointers would be:
  1. Don’t rush the launch date. It’s always worth delaying slightly to ensure your website is accurate and working correctly in all areas.
  2. Test absolutely everything. Try and break the site. This is imperative, because if you don’t, a member of the public will!
  3. Keep on top of your SEO to ensure maximum visibility.
