What Does Your
Website Need to
Win?

Depending on your industry and, consequently, the type of people your website is targeting, it will require a couple of features. However, in our experience, there are a few standard features that just about any e-commerce business can benefit from in the long term. Some of these features can help businesses save money by making often complex tasks quicker and simpler. Below are a couple of features your business website or eCommerce website will need.
If you are running an e-commerce store or maybe any other type of business website, the ease of editing, adding new products, and updating information can be invaluable. Not only does it save you as a business owner from having to hire a professional to handle the job, but it also means that you can handle small tasks quickly, like adding a product page, taking down products that have been sold out or discontinued, etc. If anything, we strive to ensure that the eCommerce platforms we develop for clients are as simple as they can be.
A responsive website can resize itself based on the user’s screen size and resolution without breaking. It ensures that users have a consistent and seamless experience regardless of the device they are using. Many eCommerce website owners spend hundreds of dollars to ensure that their website design scales appropriately because a lot of sales come via mobile devices. As professionals, we start by designing a website for mobile devices. You can learn how we build responsive websites here.
One of the ways that your website will win is with more traffic. More traffic often always means higher sales figures or conversion figures. However, since most traffic to your website will come in through search engines like Google, it pays to ensure that your website is search-friendly. That’s why we work hard to ensure that the websites we design are in line with search engines like Google’s best practices, making them (your eCommerce website) easier to rank.

A great-looking website isn’t necessarily conversion optimized. In fact, the internet is dotted with some great-looking websites built to impress, but their conversion figures are poor at best. Professional eCommerce web development isn’t just about aesthetics in our experience.

While the design is a significant priority for our experts, a ‘conversion focused’ approach to design means that every design element, from the use of color to fonts, has to meet this goal. The end goal is to help potential buyers take the shortest route to buy your product from the time they land on your website. Sure, it may include other parts of your strategy like retargeting and advertising, but a conversation-focused website can help you improve ‘first time visitor’ conversions.

We design and test every phase of the design, from product listing to fonts and color, to help our clients succeed in some of the most competitive markets across the world.

Whether you are selling apparel, electronics, or your service online, our conversion-focused approach to designing your website is sure to produce results like it has for dozens of other clients.

Mobile Friendly eCommerce Business Websites

If you want to do business online, your website must be mobile-friendly or responsive. Just about every online business owner knows this but designing a website that’s mobile-friendly while being just as conversion-focused as its desktop counterpart can be challenging.

Mobile websites need to be scalable so that it fits all screen sizes. However, the design needs to scale while retaining familiar design elements and still ensuring that the web page is conversion-friendly. It should also offer all the information that a prospect will need to convert, i.e., specs, product description, etc. More importantly, the design needs to be consistent across all screen sizes.

To ensure that the websites are mobile-friendly just as much as they are conversion-focused, we start by creating a mobile-friendly website. We take a mobile-first approach since the majority of sales across many industries come via mobile devices. Once we are happy with the mobile version of the website, we then scale it up to finish the desktop version. In our experience as an eCommerce web design company, this happens to be the most effective approach.

Mobile Friendly eCommerce Business Websites​

There are two additional advantages of taking a mobile-first approach to designing eCommerce websites:

mobile first

It allows us to optimize the mobile version in terms of SEO and design aesthetics until we're fully satisfied with the results.

mobile first

It ensures that the resulting website design has a small footprint, consequently loading fast, giving the website an SEO and user experience advantage.

Excellent Customer
Service

We’ve learned over the years that in some industries designing a website isn’t a one-off thing. Many businesses, especially those in the eCommerce space, require us to continue to work on various aspects of their websites or even their online presence. Furthermore, businesses may want to further hone and tweak their websites based on customer feedback or increase brand presence by investing in online marketing. That’s where our customer service comes in. 

We have a team of professionals who work with clients to ensure that not only are they initially satisfied with the custom and conversion-focused web design delivered, but help them choose other services which will further drive conversions. Mobile app development, SEO, and online advertising are just a few of the other services we offer. Each one requires that we continue to work with clients to ensure that they get exactly what they need; after all, nobody understands your business better than you!

Our customer service professionals have an excellent understanding of website development, design, eCommerce, SEO, internet marketing, and social media marketing. Understanding these technologies allows them to work with you, helping you transform your eCommerce website into a truly profitable business.

Our eCommerce Development Services

Our custom development services help ensure that your website and business, in general, benefits from a custom set of features and functionality. One of the drawbacks of using any type of website template is that the features and the functionality are limited to that template. Sure, templates can be customized and unnecessary features removed, but adding features requires a team of seasoned developers. Furthermore, we shouldn’t lose sight of the fact that the website should increase customer engagement, but most templates aren’t designed for engagement or conversions, for that matter.

Our eCommerce Software Development Services

We develop custom features and functionality that can help make administering your website more accessible. Custom features can also help retain customers longer, get visitors to take the desired action, or integrate features with other systems like cloud-based accounting software.

Our eCommerce development services can also fabricate features unique to your needs or to the existing system in place at your company.

We often work with clients to help identify the features their eCommerce website or business processes can benefit from so that those can be developed alongside their website. The approach ensures tight integration of those features with the functionality of the website.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
About Our Services

Our marketing agency offers a slew of digital marketing services, which include building a brand image for businesses or enterprise-level organizations. The campaigns are customized to the type of business we are working with and their goals.
Yes, we do offer SEO services to both businesses that run eCommerce stores as well as other types of businesses. However, our campaigns aren’t just about getting lots of traffic but instead similar to our design; the focus is on sales, i.e., conversions. Furthermore, we can work to optimize major eCommerce platforms. We strongly believe that marketing your products online is just as important as having a professional, highly optimized website to display them. Our eCommerce Search Engine Optimization service helps people searching for products like yours to find your website and then let the sales funnel do its thing. Years in the digital marketing industry have enabled us to develop a strategy to target some of the most competitive keywords successfully. That said, competitive keywords may not necessarily be a difference-maker for your bottom line, which is why we undertake in-depth research before setting out a plan to target keywords that increase conversions. That said, we often tell clients that SEO is just one part of the digital marketing puzzle; you also need to invest in social media and use advertising tools to realize short and long-term goals. In other words, SEO shouldn’t be your only focus.
At True North, we strongly believe that a website should be easy to update and more broadly administer. That’s why we put in the time and effort needed to make sure that your eCommerce website is easy to manage and administer without having technical expertise. Whether you want to add a new product page, run promotions, or send a newsletter, we give you full access and, if required, training to manage the website via the Content Management System. Furthermore, unlike other websites, there is no cap on the number of categories or products you want to sell online that can be added to the website. We customize the content management system based on your specific needs, making it much easier to run the website. That said, we are always here to answer your questions over the phone or via email. Our eCommerce services are also available for ongoing maintenance.
Toggle ContentYes, we can! In fact, we’ve worked with dozens of ERP systems and CRM tools over the years. We have the experience and knowledge needed to integrating most ERP solutions with eCommerce websites. Basic integration will allow for customer data and order information to be transferred from your eCommerce website to the internet system. Then when updates are later made to the order, for instance, when the status is changed to “paid” or “shipped,” the CRM or ERP of your choice will relay this information back to the website, where the status is updated. Integration of this type allows customers to have a better experience, reduces the amount of repetitive manual data entry, and saves money. In fact, we strongly advise that serious eCommerce businesses consider automation as part of their online selling and management strategy because it makes scaling the business easier.

Many of our clients sell physical products via their eCommerce store, which is why having shipping accommodations is just as important as adding payment gateways. However, it may not be important if your store sells only digital goods, which are delivered almost immediately. When designing and developing websites for eCommerce stores, we make sure that if the store sells physical items, there is a way for shipping and handling to be automatically calculated. You can also provide shoppers with a flat shipping rate or choose to ship for free. Regardless of how you want to ship, we are sure that it is possible to build that feature into your eCommerce store.

While we hate to say this but it depends on the type of website we’re designing and the features that need to be built into it. When pricing an eCommerce website, we start with understanding your goals, design direction, marketing needs, and functionality requirements. All of these take time to develop, but the difficulty of adding to your website also varies. Some features may require we deviate slightly from our standard development process. However, we also know that hiring a firm to handle your eCommerce website design is a major decision, but we would like to make the process as easy as it can be. That’s why we provide a free consultation, which allows us to discuss what you need and then provides you with a quote or estimate based on it. Feel free to give us a call or fill out our brief online form, and a member of our team will get in touch to discuss your business goals.

This so-called mobile-first approach ensures that the resulting website is designed to look great on mobile device screens of all sizes and resolutions. However, we also test to make sure that the website will look just as good on larger screens often used by desktop computers.

As the owner of an eCommerce website, you know the value of having a secure website, especially when it comes to safeguarding user data. Our eCommerce developers use SSL encryption which is a standard website security protocol. SSL encrypts information before it is transferred, so it can’t be read even if it were to be intercepted. Furthermore, we develop websites using PCI compliance standards. However, we recommend that eCommerce sellers, especially small and medium-sized sellers, don’t store credit card information on their servers or database. A 3rd party payment gateway works better because that way, your website can process payments without having to worry about the liability that accompanies having to host sensitive information.

We know from experience that having a professional and conversion-focused eCommerce website for start-ups is important, but they are also on a tight budget.

We are the fastest eCommerce development company, currently offering the fastest turnaround time for a professional website, but it isn’t at the expense of the quality we promise clients. That said, the turnaround varies depending on the extent of work needed and how soon you respond to our queries. Generally speaking, we aim to complete most eCommerce websites within a couple of weeks. However, additional revisions and the addition of additional functionality which wasn’t originally part of the plan can further stretch timelines.

Since we offer development services, we can add features to most websites or e-commerce platforms. However, a lot depends on what platform your online store is using and the amount of flexibility it offers. That said, the majority of platforms offer a degree of flexibility, allowing us to add functionality via plugins. However, there can still be limitations to what is achievable, which is why it is essential to discuss what you need in the context of the eCommerce platform currently being used.

Usually, business owners want to discuss what technology will work best for their business model. Our recommendations of what technology to use can vary depending on our client’s industry and their needs. However, for us to make a recommendation, we would have to discuss everything they want to achieve, their current business model, and why the technology currently being used isn’t working for them.
