Whether it’s your first eCommerce website or a ground-up re-launch, we’ll work together to design a site structure and visual style that will be irresistible to your ideal customer. This package includes a Responsive, mobile-friendly visual theme, my must-have suite of security, performance, and SEO plugins, plus any customizations required for your specific business needs.
Having your own eCommerce website on your own domain name, all controlled by you and not some other company, is the most important investment you can make for the future of your online business. If you’re only selling on marketplaces like Etsy, Amazon, or Artfire or on hosted platforms like Squarespace or Wix you’re operating on their terms, by their permission, and you are limited in how much brand equity you can build.
Also, if the service shuts down or changes their terms of service you might lose your whole revenue stream. An eCommerce website of your own puts you in control of your business’s future. You get to call the shots—what features your site has, what it looks like, how your price your products, how you market to your customers—everything. Your eCommerce website is your flagship store, your home online, and is yours forever.
Q: What factors affect the cost and duration of the project?
A: The base price assumes that you already have product listings (photos, pricing, and descriptions) on a service like Etsy. It also assumes that we will be using an existing premium theme and modifying it, as opposed to building one from scratch. If your situation is different, we’ll work together to develop a proposal that meets your needs, and your budget!
Q: What is included?
A: First we’ll evaluate any shops you currently have in marketplaces or hosted platforms and decide which ones to keep, which to shut down, and which to reposition. Then we’ll decide which eCommerce platform is right for you and your business goals, and I’ll take care of setting up the basic infrastructure. Once that’s done we will select and customize a theme (or design a totally custom one from scratch if you select that option), define the functional requirements (features) of the site and install plugins or write custom code to make those features happen. Finally we’ll import all of your product listings and hang up the Grand Opening banner!
Q: What isn’t included?
A: I typically do not offer copy writing, product photography, writing product descriptions, or adding or modifying products (except for performing bulk imports).
