Ecommerce Websites Designed for Efficiency and Value
The true process of building an effective ecommerce website begins with the perfect layout and graphical overview, which are visual elements to illuminate the site. When ecommerce web designers sit down and try to come up with an idea, many just look to create a website that sits in the background and that looks like everyone else’s – including your competitors.
Let’s face it, your true message for the site stands out for the entire world to see. Whatever your product or industry may be, getting customers to purchase a product from your ecommerce store should have the right blend of charisma, unique products, good copywriting and nice images.
The goal of the website must be created around your product. Developer4Lease is just the company to do both. We can create a visually appealing site that puts your online store in the best light in the eyes of your customers.
Getting your site found
Aside from the visual enhancements, making your website search engine friendly is just as important. After all, generating traffic to your ecommerce store is the goal of having a store. Top search engines, like Google, are often changing how the information is relayed or how keywords are chosen for relevancy in the searches. We can offer SEO services from our search engine optimization sister company seo4lease.com, and apply it to your ecommerce solution, to maximize your ability to be found among the many thousands of websites and ecommerce platforms there are right now. Then once the customers find you through the search engines, having that grabbing graphical elements will make them sit up and take notice of your online store, especially if your ecommerce store relies heavily on the web to move products.
Lightning fast page loads
One thing that will make a customer run from your ecommerce website faster than anything else is waiting, waiting and waiting for pages to load. No one has time to wait for a slow website with our busy schedules. While there are many factors that go into the speed in which information flows, one of the biggest time killers for an ecommerce site is the amount of graphics that are being loaded (such as those of flash sites). Even if they do look great, you are just asking for a slow page load by having graphics files that are too big on your ecommerce platform. You can compound this problem even more if the webmaster does not design the website correctly. At Developer4Lease, we have perfected the ability to design an ecommerce solution that has just the right amount of graphics needed to run at an efficient rate.
Cascading Style Sheets and Standard Compliance Codes
A facet of contemporary open source ecommerce sites is their functionality. Having the ability to draw the line between function and form is done with codes. So content is one facet, while the layout and style is another component that is created using style sheets. Style sheets make it easier for visitors to navigate on your online store and also make the progression from choosing items to shopping cart navigation user friendly. Style sheets also make the b2b ecommerce software more controllable to the store owner or manager, allowing swift changes to be made across the whole site with just a couple of clicks. CSS offers endless possibilities for ecommerce solutions; however we still have a need for standards compliant codes for ecommerce platforms.
Web browsers like Firefox or Internet Explorer interpret pages one of two ways; either error-free coding or through standard compliant code. This is not to say that a web page or whole ecommerce site cannot be customized, but it requires a lot more effort to create. As a result, anytime the work is done outside of standard compliant code or external style sheets, you run the risk of slow uploads for the customers.
