eCommerce Web Design & Development
Creating and running a successful eCommerce business isn’t just about having the ability to sell online. To be successful your store needs to be easily found, look fabulous, engage your customers, inspire trust, have an intuitive customer journey and ultimately convert site visitors into sales and promote repeat buying.
First we get creative!
Our digital designers have a deep understanding of eCommerce platforms. They know what they are capable of (the whizzy stuff), and how your users will interact with your site (the visual stuff). The UX and the UI of your site are all important and need to work closely together to give the perfect package!
All our gorgeous designs will be presented in PDF or Adobe XD format for your approval before we start the website build phase.
Then our coders get busy with the clever stuff
All of our store builds are project managed and you will have full access to our project management system to be able to monitor the development progress of your site. All our sites are responsive and all sites are tested against Google Mobile Standards prior to launch to ensure that your site is indexed and included in both desktop and mobile search engine results.
To be sure, to be sure, to be sure
Before we launch your website into the stratosphere, we test it over and over. Payment gateways are checked and we make sure they are able to take live payments, we ensure there are no dead links on your site and all functionality is working as planned.
Your site will be developed to follow Google webmaster guidelines and SEO best practice as standard. We take search engine performance into account at every stage of your site creation, starting with the design and site architecture and finishing with the creation of xml sitemaps. These are submitted to the Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools.
Before Go-live, we will remove any unused and not needed modules to enable faster site loading. We will also optimise your site images and site files within your hosting environment to reduce page load times.
Teapot Creative have a very experienced in-house digital marketing team. We offer a wide range of SEO services to improve your site visibility within search engines and support you site after build and launch.
Teapot Creative have designed, built, tested and launched more than 50 eCommerce stores. Our web designers have a deep understanding of eCommerce development platforms, what they are capable of and how to create an engaging store design that answers your needs at the same time as utilising all of the functionality that the platform is capable of. All designs will be presented in PDF format for your approval prior to the website build commencing.
All of our store builds are project managed and you will have full access to our project management system to be able to monitor the development progress of your site, communicate directly with the development team and supply resources such as website copy, images, video, etc. We employ responsive design as standard so that your site is well supported cross-browser and across desktop, mobile and tablet devices. All sites are tested against Google Mobile Standards prior to launch to ensure that your site is indexed and included in both desktop and mobile search engine results.
Prior to launch we journey test each site against a strict testing procedure to ensure that your customer journey is sound, payment gateways have been checked and are able to take live payments, there are no dead links on your site and all functionality is working as agreed.
4. Site Optimisation
We are fanatical about preventing any instance of duplicate content and where this is not possible due to business restrictions we will advise on the best way of mitigating the effects of duplicate content via the use of canonical tags.
