Our Process

Ensuring you have a fantastic project experience matters just as much to us as the quality of the final product we hand over. 

E-commerce can feel like a complicated beast, that’s why we’ve designed our process framework to accommodate everyone from seasoned e-commerce professionals to those getting their first taste of selling online.

First, we take the time to fully understand your business objectives and products so that we are certain we are starting from a place of unity and know what direction is best suited to the needs of you and your online store.

Every online business is unique – there is no one-size-fits-all approach to developing a successful e-commerce website. We carefully research your industry, competitors and information gathered during the discovery phase to produce a plan of action and low fidelity wireframe to help us clarify what information is to be presented.

Once a wireframe and general site structure has been established, we turn our focus to the appearance and user experience of your website. Our design process begins and ends with creating a positive experience that converts visitors into customers.

The next stage of our process involves implementing our design into a functional and fully product integrated store.

In the back-end of your website, we carefully follow best practices to ensure your website is fast, mobile friendly and search engine optimised. Stock control, pricing, introducing multiple currencies and payment processing is handled at this stage.

Our e-commerce websites are developed to be easily managed by our clients. We provide you with training on how you can manage your shop so that you are comfortable managing it after completion.

Built-in analytics tools mean you can easily view your website and sales performance, and custom integrations allow you to create special offers, sales, launch marketing campaigns, discount codes and update product details in minutes.

You also have access to a range of aftersale support and SEO packages, should you want to invest in keyword driven content to drive organic traffic to your website.

Every e-commerce website is unique in size and scope, so it is difficult to give any sort of generalised time-frame to a project without accessing further information. We always discuss deadlines in our initial meeting, so if there is a pressing launch date it is really important that we know before starting work. We will never commit to a hard deadline we aren’t sure we can make and will talk to you about how you can help us stay on-track and keep the project running smoothly.

Without understanding your unique requirements, we can’t provide an accurate quote for an e-commerce website. We set out to create truly bespoke websites and every online store varies considerably in complexity. However, as a rough guide, a simple one-product store tends to start from £2000; exceptions can be made for smaller budgets with limited specifications, such as landing pages and redesigns.

Yes. Once the development of your e-commerce website is complete, we will begin a handover process which includes demonstrating the functionality of your store.

We are committed to seeing our clients grow and succeed, which is why we offer several affordable support packages so that you can receive ongoing assistance whenever you need it.

You will not be locked in to using Wilkes Wood as your web design agency and can move or transfer the site as you wish. In addition, you can easily manage which individuals and agencies have access to your store through the Shopify CMS.

We are more than happy to investigate issues and look into developing solutions for existing sites, yet these may be limited by the choice of theme or previous development work. We take these projects on a case by case basis and will always discuss options with you after auditing the current state of the store or site.

What Now?

All of our e-commerce projects start with a free no obligation chat. That gives us the chance to discuss where you are now, where you want to be, and how we can get you there…
