Shopify Website Migration
Whether you’re looking to migrate your business from a custom-built bespoke platform or from another competing platform such as Squarespace or WordPress, we’ve got your back. We have migrated websites from virtually every imaginable platform to Shopify and not one customer has been disappointed with the results. We ensure that your site is highly performing, fast, SEO-ready, and incredibly user-friendly, so that you can be sure that you have a website that is ready to start growing your sales.
User Experience Centric
When we design websites, we ensure that the user experience is as smooth and free from distractions or issues as it possibly can be. User experience is central to achieving a great conversion rate, and also ties in directly with your ability to rank on search engines. We always design with UX principles in mind and ensure that your users have a great experience when using your website.
SEO-Ready Shopify Websites
For all eCommerce businesses that we work with, we recommend focusing on making organic traffic one of, if not the primary traffic source for your business. SEO traffic means that you have a steady source of traffic coming to your store without having to spend a single penny on advertising. What’s more, it can act as a great foundation for layering on additional traffic sources, such as PPC, Google Shopping, Affiliate Marketing and Social Media Marketing.
Shopify Web Development FAQs
Shopify Web Development is the creation and adjustment of an eCommerce theme through the Shopify CMS platform, making use of requisite applications and manipulating Liquid code when necessary. Good Shopify web developers have a sophisticated understanding of Shopify’s code language Liquid and will be able to manipulate it to provide the functionality and design required by the website.
They should also have a good understanding of which applications will be needed to provide various performance enhancements, payment solutions and enhanced functionality to a Shopify site without negatively affecting its performance. There are over 6,000 applications available on Shopify’s store, many of which purport to serve a similar purpose. Knowing which are the best to use makes a huge difference to the quality of site-build.
Yes, but is almost exclusively used in the development of eCommerce websites. Shopify is a platform built specifically for online stores; blogging and media sites will be served better by using a different platform such as WordPress. In addition, without knowledge of Liquid code, it may prove difficult to design a Shopify website exactly as you would like it and you will largely be restricted by your choice in theme at the start.
The introduction of Shopify 2.0 has enabled individuals with minimal Shopify website development skills to modify and change more when it comes to the design of a Shopify theme, but this is only possible with themes that are built on the 2.0 framework. For certain advanced modifications not built into the Liquid code, you will require either the use of an app or a Shopify expert who can write the required code.
As a web developer, you will need to a) select a theme that fits the intended style and requirements of your website, b) populate your store with products, key pages and other content, and c) set up payment gateways, integrate applications and develop areas of code to add functionality to your site. This is a bare minimum to start a Shopify store, and many more areas need to be considered if you are to successfully make sales, not least developing a digital marketing strategy to bring relevant visitors to your site.
