eCommerce Web Design Agency

E-Commerce Web Design Services For RVA Based Businesses

Do you need an eCommerce web design agency in Richmond, VA, to help you sell your products and services? 

Are You Trying To Sell Something Online?

Hello business owners, Mike the CEO here. At some point I’m going to be replacing written introductions with videos, haha! But, I wanted to write this section myself and say thank you for visiting our eCommerce web design agency services page.

Do you own a brick-and-mortar business that has to get started online? Do you have an eCommerce store that isn’t growing? Is your service-based business looking to add online subscriptions? Have you thought about where to start this process?

If you aren’t sure, then you are on the right page. E-commerce competition is fierce, and you want to start at the top of your game with a quality, professionally designed eCommerce website.

E-Commerce Statistics That Make You Say, "What?"

The number of American small businesses without a website is:

It’s 2023 and one-third of American small businesses still don’t have a website. This is insane when you think about how many people are looking to purchase goods and services online. Which leads to our next statistic.

In 2023, an estimated 218.8 million Americans will be shopping online. That is around 65% of the United States population. Now, imagine how much you can make also selling worldwide. It’s important to consider what you’re missing out on if you don’t have a website, or if you need to update your current one.

It takes more than 1.5 seconds to load. Load up your website on your phone. If it takes a bit, would you want to buy from it? What’s worse is that 32% will go to your competitor’s website to make the purchase.

Your e-commerce website isn’t optimized for all mobile devices. This number is staggering. You could be losing tons of business due to a user interface (UI) problem you don’t know about.

What Is It Like Working With Our E-Commerce Web Design Agency?

  • Your Website Will Work On Every Device

    Remember the statistic where 84% of people won't buy if your e-commerce site isn't optimized for mobile devices? You will have a mobile optimized website that has an easy to use UI (user interface) and UX (user experience), making it easy to buy.

  • You Will Have More Time

    Building an e-commerce website is more than just uploading it to the internet. You have to complete market research, wireframe the website, write the content, perform search engine optimization, maintain it, and more. When you have us by your side to work with you, you can dedicate all that time to running your business.

  • Your Business Will Make More Money

    68% of online activities start with typing a keyword into Google, and 75% of people don't look at the second page of the search results. We don't just design your website, we optimize it for Google (search engine optimization). This means your website is more likely to obtain traffic on Google, and you can't sell without website traffic.

  • You Can Save Money

    Hiring an eCommerce web design agency is an expensive purchase you don't want to take lightly. Especially since you're paying for the expertise and experience. Do-it-yourself website builders can sound appealing, but as you start building the website and realize all it entails, all that time you committed can amount to dollars lost.

  • Keep Up With Your Competition

    You will receive regular website management and maintenance reports from us. Every quarter we look at your website and compare it to your competitors. This way, we can help you choose what changes and improvements are needed so you're always ahead of the game.

  • Peace of Mind

    You can retain us to maintain and manage your website for an affordable price. What's this mean? We will provide the security, maintain the website's speed, update the software, and ensure everything is going smoothly. You have peace of mind knowing your e-commerce site is consistently running and making you money.

WooCommerce WordPress Plugin Experts

If you have a WordPress website and want to add e-commerce, WooCommerce is your best option. WooCommerce is a free plugin that gives you full eCommerce capabilities. You can then download more than 400 additional plugins to provide even more functionality. There’s nothing you can’t do with WooCommerce. As the second most popular e-commerce platform, it powers more than 20% of all e-commerce websites.

How to know if WooCommerce is the best option for your business:

  • If you already have a WordPress website and want to add eCommerce features.
  • Business owners who have a Squarespace or WIX website and have outgrown them.
  • If you want full control and ownership over your website, then choose WooCommerce.
  • WooCommerce is more developer-friendly, meaning your web developer can code further customization not available through plugins.

Shopify Professionals

Although WooCommerce has so many plugins that add functionality, it doesn’t mean Shopify won’t be for you. Shopify is excellent for business owners who want to manage their own website on a day-to-day basis vs. retaining a web designer/developer to manage it for them. Here’s the reasons why you might want us to design your e-commerce site using Shopify:

  • Shopify is a hosted solution, meaning you don’t need to worry about your technical setup, software updates, or hosting settings.
  • Shopify has built in security meaning you won’t need to worry about the technicalities or costs of added security.
  • Both Shopify and WooCommerce support multiple payment gateways, but Shopify requires less setup.
  • Has easy to install apps to increase functionality.
  • Built-in themes that let you customize the site to fit your branding.

Discovery & Wireframing

After we complete the in-depth discovery process outlined on our web design page. It is time to create a wireframe. A website wireframe is like a rough draft of the website. It outlines where the major elements will go, their size, and what will link where. This helps us prepare for the full scope of the project and keep it organized.

SEO Optimization

E-Commerce websites don't work by themselves. Just because you upload it to the internet doesn't mean people will find it. Your competitors websites will already be SEO optimized and have higher rankings on Google. But don't worry, every eCommerce website we design and build comes optimized for Google's search results.

E-Commerce Web Design Services: FAQ

If you don’t see the answer to your question, contact us.

Why should I hire a Web Designer to design my eCommerce site?

Your website should be designed around your customers’ problems and how your business/products will solve those problems. It should be designed to sell your goods and services and not just be an online billboard. Nobody wants a website people use to compare to their competition. M.J. Web Design’s goal is to help your online small business sell through eCommerce.

Can you redesign my current eCommerce website?

Sure we can. Statistics show a website should be updated or redesigned every three years. Thanks to how quickly technology, web design, and marketing strategies update, your website will become outdated if you don’t. We can redesign and upgrade your website’s platform as well. If you’re still on platforms that don’t grow well like WIX and Squarespace, we can transfer your data and design a new site using WordPress/WooCommerce, or Shopify.

Is it easy to manage my new eCommerce website?

This depends on how much time you have to dedicate to website management, your technological skill, and whether you want to learn it all. You will receive instructional guides with the new eCommerce site we develop for you, but this doesn’t solve the time you have to take away from running your business and updating/managing the site. Luckily we can do it for you through our website management services.

How much does an eCommerce website cost?

This depends on many factors. If you want to design and build your own website it will come down to the hosting, feature, and security costs. But, the biggest cost is your time. Most agencies will charge a minimum of $3,000 for just the website. This may sound expensive, but the professionalism, SEO rankings, and ease of use for your customers make up for the price.

Will my eCommerce website be responsive?

Yes, it will. Every website we design will resize itself and work on every size screen. That means your customers will get a smooth experience whether they’re shopping on a desktop computer, laptop, or mobile phone. We also optimize websites for speed, that way you won’t lose sales because of a slow mobile website.

Will the website be secure?

We take great care to ensure your eCommerce website is secure. This is vital to protect your customer’s data and keep your business safe from identity theft. In 2022, more than $41 billion dollars was lost through e-commerce fraud. You definitely don’t want this to happen to you.

How do I advertise my websites goods and services?

There’s no end to the ways your business can advertise your eCommerce site. Whether you choose email, social media, or paid ads, you need to drive traffic to the website in order to sell. We can help you through our digital marketing or SEO services. You can even subscribe to our newsletter or check out our YouTube channel. M.J. Web Design is also developing an online academy that helps with web design and digital marketing.

Why is an eCommerce website so important in 2023 and beyond?

ECommerce is growing at a rapid rate and if you don’t keep on top of the changes, your business could be left behind. 1 in 3 (96.9 million) people in the United States shop online each year, and eCommerce sales are expected to reach $2.9 trillion by the year 2026. Finally, 79% of shoppers are recurring shoppers and make an online purchase once a month. This is a lot of money you don’t want to leave on the table.
