The question that people ask themselves when it comes to building a business presence online is – “can I do this myself, or do I need a web developer?” The answer to this question depends on you & the skill set within your company, and also your aesthetic & functional requirements for the eCommerce website. There are different kinds of web design strategies one can employ:
Amature built, from scratch, uploaded via FTP & no Content Management System (CMS):
These are pretty rare these days. They are harder to update and require a knowledge of HTML, although the site pages can be edited/updated using a desktop editing tool such as Dreamweaver. This would undoubtedly be the last thing I considered if I were trying to create an eCommerce business.
Standard off the shelf CMS with an off the shelf template:
eCommerce websites can be created quite cheaply using standard packages. If you are not really that interested in a whizzy eCommerce website and just want to showcase your products, this is probably the best solution for you. But then again, selling your product & services, establishing your business, and generating revenue can be very challenging. Who would want to trust a site that looks & feels unprofessional?
Off the shelf, CMS tailored for your business:
If you need a bit more wow factor – you can hire an eCommerce Web Design Agency to create a unique template for you. Hiring an eCommerce Web Design Agency to install software such as WordPress and then creating a unique template based on your design requirements is a route many people go down. This will vary in price depending upon how much work you need for the design. If they are simply installing the CMS and making it look pretty, then that is one thing. If, on the other hand, you are taking them with creating all the pages and adding the content, the bill will go up.
Custom eCommerce site:
If your web presence is very important to you, and a simple off the shelf CMS solution doesn’t cover it, then you should consider contacting a top eCommerce Web Design Agency who will spend time analyzing your requirements & creating a website to match your expectations. If you require top functionality – UX, interactive content, responsive site or widget, & applications, you should consider approaching a reputable & established eCommerce Web Design Agency.
