How can a web development agency grow your ecommerce business?

Posted on January 9, 2022 at 3:26 pm

If you’re looking to develop your ecommerce website, it makes sense that you might want to find a web development agency who can work closely with your business. However, there are many agencies out there and none of them can 100% guarantee the work they carry out will help you increase sales. So how do you find one that can help grow your business without making false promises? There are some key things to consider when choosing an agency so let’s take a look at this in more detail.

What is their experience with ecommerce?

The first thing I would recommend when finding an ecommerce web design agency is to check their portfolio. This should allow you to see whether they have worked on any big or popular brands before in the past. You’ll also be able to see the kind of work they carry out, whether it’s design, development, marketing, programming or any other form of web development.

Have a look through their website and blog. By having a quick search on Google you should be able to find out some information about the agency. You can most likely find out how long they’ve been in business, which gives you an idea of their longevity – especially important if you’re looking for somewhere with experience.

What is the agency’s approach?

Secondly, I would also recommend checking in with them on the kind of approach they take when working with clients. It’s not just the technical side of things that matter when partnering up with an ecommerce web design agency, so for example, you may want to make sure they provide content and marketing too if necessary. Many web development agencies are in essence digital marketing firms, helping businesses attract the right customers and convert them, meaning they can handle all aspects of your online presence.

What kind of help do you need?

Do you need a custom CMS built to manage all interactions with your customers? Do you need an attractive and user-friendly website to convert customers or require a mix of web development and design services for apps, websites, mail campaigns, and login portals? The majority of successful, large retailers in the UK and across the world have bespoke websites because it’s very rare that an off-the-shelf solution can work for a serious business. Your audience is unique, so you need to optimise your processes and ‘experience’ with their needs in mind. That’s where a web development agency can help, taking your online strategy to the next level.

If you’re planning or considering taking your retail operation online, it’s worthwhile speaking to an experienced digital team with many years of analysis, testing, and development by seasoned professionals who know how to get it right the first time. The UK is competing in the global market and that means online retail is increasingly important. With 400,000 new companies starting each year, you need to know how best to compete.
