RELATIONSHIP IS A KEY FOCUS FOR US
We won't be just another web development team, we become an extension of your team
I was searching for web design company in Toronto and my friend recommended me Influce. According to the cofounder, Eugene, they just started providing digital marketing services few months ago. Oh, they got talents! Both cofounders know inside and out of web design, graphic design, SEO and etc. They are very friendly and helped me to redesign my family’s business website. I didn’t know anything about websites and Eugene was able to explain everything to me. He made my site look fresh and modern now. Influce is a great web design agency and I would highly recommend it!
Influce team designed, launched and hosted our website. I first discussed our idea with Eugene through a phone interview. Then we met several times to discussed our idea further. After discussing the issues thoroughly, I joined Influce team where every questions quickly answered and brainstorming sessions planned. Not only they were responsive during the design and development process, and equally important is that they always make themselves available to address any issues whether they are technical issues or how to we have with the site after it’s launched. Eugene made us feel confident that they will be there for us whenever we need them. Thank you, Eugene, Yaroslav, and everyone at Influce who has made this experience so satisfying and enjoyable!
The Influce team did a great job for my ecommerce site. They helped me to set up, manage and customize my Shopify team to look and work its best. They made it seem easy, guiding me through the process, from concept to completion. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to build or customize an online shop.
Tips for building a successful e-commerce website
There is more to e-commerce website development than simply building a site where customers can buy from your online store. Much like the local brick and mortar stores, Toronto e-commerce sites need to deliver a good shopping experience. The top e-commerce companies plan every detail from the colors and the layout to developing a buyer’s journey that helps to guide customers from the first visit to the completion of a sale.
The design for e-commerce websites should be clean and simple. Much like a physical store, shoppers do not want to go to website that is cluttered or overly complicated. Identify the content and information that needs to be on each page and stick to what is necessary. Avoid adding any distractions or content that does not serve the purpose of moving the visitor to the next stage of their journey.
With an e-commerce website, your store is not a physical space, but that does not mean that you can forget about organization. Just like in a brick and mortar store, you want to have departments and organize your products by different categories. This way, if customers want to browse, they know where to find the different types of products that they may be interested in. As an additional point, you want to have an easy to use search box so customers can search for specific products. Allowing customers to add filters to search results is another way to make it easier for them to find what they want.
Navigation is an important element of any website. When an e-commerce development company builds a website, they put a lot of thought into making it easy for visitors find their way from one section of the site to the next. The navigation on an e-commerce website should be intuitive. If a visitor needs to figure out how to use the site, they are not going to want to shop there. You also want to avoid overloading your top menu with too many choices. List the main departments in the top menu and then use dropdowns to list the different categories in each department.
So many e-commerce websites in Toronto lose sales because they have a complicated checkout process. If you want to reduce your cart abandonment rate, you need to make purchasing as easy as possible. Think about how many steps you need a customer to take and only make them go through the necessary steps. Along with that, you only want to ask them for the information that is necessary to complete the purchase. Some people will not stick with a long and complicated checkout process, so it is in your best interest to make things as easy as possible.
Reviews from past buyers can play an important role in increasing your sales and winning new customers. Research suggests that 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as they trust a recommendation from a person they know. If you want to take advantage of this type of word of mouth, you should allow buyers to post reviews on the product pages and you should also encourage buyers to post reviews after a purchase.
