Why Do You Want A New Store?
Online retail is very competitive and this means that you have to continually pay attention to your store. Is it still performing as it did? Does it look dated? Are there any problems along the customer journey through your store that are stopping them complete a purchase?
All things that need to be dealt with when the occur. But at some stage you may feel that you have outgrown the platform you are on and you want to migrate to another one. All migrations are risky but sometimes you have no other choice. Even if you just want to keep up to speed with upgrades to your current platform, there are challenges in doing that too.
What We Do
We start by asking some important questions:
- Who are your target audience?
- How have you positioned yourself against your competitors?
- What channels to market will you use?
- What do you want the site to achieve?
- What are your design priorities?
- How many products, pictures, videos etc you want to use?
- What platform do you want to use?
- What hosting do you currently use?
We work with you to make choices about the above and also to develop a clear Functional Specification. Critically, this starts with an analysis stage, where we look at all you site and customer metrics, or develop them if you don't have them, to make sure we make the best choices. We then validate them to make sure that the site will achieve the performance metrics required. We then develop a build and migration plan.
The latter is particularly important to at least preserve, and often improve, SEO rankings. All this before starting to build anything. This way, the build process is more predictable, you get what you want, and the project comes in on time and budget. Without careful planning this is not always the case.
What Does It Cost?
We provide an estimate up front but this can vary greatly depending on the scope of the work. We confirm the price once the Functional Specification is complete. We never offer unrealistically low prices just to get work as it rarely turns out well for either party.
