Ecommerce in Middlesbrough

 

Whether you are looking for a small online store or something much bigger the process is the same. After an initial meeting to establish the scope of the job and what you want to get out of your website, I will start to piece together some template and layout ideas which we will discuss and refine.

At the same time you will be busy writing your content, either sending it to me page by page, or in a complete bundle. I will also need logo’s and images to be sent to me. Should you need help with imagery I can help you source good quality stock images. Once I have all required content I will start building the site. If it is a small site the build process can be relatively quick, but for bigger sites we will have regular progress meetings.

Regardless of the size of the site you will be able to access the back office of the site to check build progress and suggest any changes

  • Images/Content: For your products it is essential that you provide me with all of the required information. Product images, descriptions of the product and the price of the product.
  • CSV: If you are working with a supplier they may be able to provide you with a CSV file which I will be able to load into the site and create your products in bulk.

The site is finished when you are happy. At that point I will ask you to have a full review of the site to make sure there are no errors that haven’t been picked up. Once satisfied then your site can launch.

All Zodiac Digital shopping websites utlilise a leading shopping platform which allow you to engage with your customers whether this is in a b2b or a b2c ecommerce shopping environment.
