Raleigh eCommerce Website Designers
Introduction. According to our team of Raleigh ecommerce website designers, E-commerce sites are very different from other sites. They are even different from typical business sites. These online stores have to be both attractive, detailed without being overwhelming, navigable and functional. The products have to be easy to find and the entire structure of the site has to be one that inspires trust sand security. There is an increasing number of E-commerce sites in the world as more people move to shopping online.
I. User-Friendly Navigation. This is probably the most critical dimension in an e-commerce site designs. We always make sure that the site is friendly enough for online shoppers to locate items with ease. While there is no particular standard for what constitutes proper navigation,it’s easy to tell which site is navigation friendly and which ones aren’t. The trick is to use beta testers to try out your site and give feedback before launching it.
II. Compatibility with Devices. The major trend right now is that more people are shopping online through their phones. Therefore we ensure that the site is compatible with the new and emerging gadgets in the market. This involves design strategy that ensures mobile optimization, responsive design and one that adjusts to fit the screen size. We know that sites that aren’t optimized for phones will quickly lose their site visitors to their rivals with better mobile optimization.
III. Large Eye-Catching Images. People tend to be more responsive to sites that have images. Therefore we always optimize on the images. We make that sure the images are large and of good quality and they fit properly on the site. We recommend that you pick a professional photographer to capture the pictures of the items that will be on sale. Poor quality images are a turnoff and makes potential clients queasy about shopping from you.
IV. Fast Loading Speed. Site visitors will check out of any site that takes more than 3 seconds to load. This will highly affect your conversion and bounce rates. If you are planning on reaching out to high numbers of clients, then the site has to have fast loading speeds. We tend implement features that speed up the site and plugins that compress loading speeds.
V. Payment Solutions. Given that it’s an online store, it has to have payment methods for the products. There are a number of safe and secure payment platforms that we can integrate into the site. A site can only be termed an e-commerce site if it has a proper payment system. In line with this, the site will have features that enhance card security. Always verify that the payment methods is available and operating in the markets that you target.
