Magento, in particular, is a big hit among online shopping sites because it is e-commerce friendly, helps manage your stocks & supplies, print shipping labels and a whole lot of activities.
Here are 5 intuitive tips from an expert developer to break down all apprehensions on how to go about building a website exclusively for your business. Of course, an easier way out is to hire a developer or hire our team to build your online shopping store.
Decide on a theme
Pick out a theme keeping in mind your business goals, growth forecast and the size of the business. Developers tend to make the error of choosing a theme which may work well in the beginning but have issues later, while stress testing. Small businesses selling a few products might work well with some of the Magento themes. Larger online sellers may not find it suitable for their requirement. They will have to settle for a theme meant for a bigger store.
Hiring a Magento expert developer is recommended to personalize and optimize your site for business. Faster theme files ensure swifter page loading. Definitely, one of the best ways to achieve a great Google grade - the faster the website loads, the better!
Responsive to mobile devices
More than 50% of the online purchases happen on mobile devices. Moreover, Google penalizes websites that are not mobile friendly. Might as well make your e-commerce website mobile inclusive to avoid starting off on the wrong foot!
Amazing user experience
Designing the perfect user experience for every prospective buyer is vital. This prevents cart abandonment and is a solid sales builder. The features such as search, add to cart and check out transactions should be quick and smooth. Establish a good user experience applying UX expert and wireframe; it usually precedes the website graphic design work.
A good branding for your product using dynamic graphic design attracts prospective buyers to explore the site. The design has to convey a clear message on what products you sell and what they can expect from the company. Showcasing exceptional category pages, perfect images and product pages are imperative to keep the customers interested.
Seamless Site Navigation
Online shoppers tend to exit a poor navigation site in seconds. Hiring an expert developer to design a robust, fast navigation site should be your primary goal. Searching and accessing products online should be made easy and simple, with products neatly categorized.
It really doesn’t matter whether you are selling the best products at very attractive prices, offering discount coupons or on sale.
