Product Listing & Optimisation
We will upload your entire product catalogue and will optimise the product listings in line with SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and CRO (Conversion Optimisation) best practices that actually get results.
Adding products to a site without the knowledge of search and conversion optimisation best practices is akin to pouring water into a bucket with holes in the bottom.
We make sure that the traffic we will send to your site converts in paying customers for your business.
While every business and industry is unique there are timeless principles of eCommerce Website Design that produce results over and over again.
We’ve learned these principles over two decades of eCommerce experience and will apply all of them into your new Website Design.
Domain Creation & Store Hosting
We will create your domain and perform your website hosting if you require it. This means we will create your eCommerce website name and register it online for you, then we will create and set up your hosting so that your site can be live online 24/7 and operating at the fastest speeds possible.
We handle all this in-house leaving you free to focus on running your business rather than dealing with complicated time consuming technical matters.
If your store encounters any technical issues we will resolve these issues for you with the help of our team of technical web design experts at no extra cost.
No technical head aches.
Analytics Set-Up & Training
While we build your store we will set up all the back-end analytics platforms. You need analytics to make sure you can see exactly how your store is performing and make informed business decisions to grow your business.
If required we will do a follow-up consultation with you to train you on how to use them so that you can run and manage your new store at a professional level from day one.
We will be using Shopify or WooCommerce as the architecture for your store for your ease of use and professionalism, we will be setting up GA4 (Google Analytics) as your main analytics platform and will also introduce you to Google Search Console to track and understand the issues your site may be facing in relation to SEO.
While these platforms are complicated, a training session with the Experts at BytesizeMe will ensure you will be analysing your business performance like a professional from day one.
Payment Gateway Set Up
We will also set up ‘Buy Now Pay Later’ finance options such as Klarna & Clearpay if required. The inclusion of multiple payment gateways has been repeatedly proven to boost conversion rates over the years so is something we encourage for all our clients.
Whereas most new eCommerce stores have only one payment gateway which we know results in lost sales, we ensure you have the three most important ones so that your conversion rate is as high as possible.
Training On How To Use Your New Store
We will present your working store to you for your approval before we take your store online. We will finalise any further changes you would like to make, once you are happy with the finished store we will provide a training session for you so you know how to use your store, receive and process sales etc… then we will publish your store live to the world.
