E-Commerce Web Design

In 2024 customers expect your business to have an online store. They love your business, and they want to order your products online and have them delivered to the door. E-Commerce website design requires expertise and experience. Yes, platforms like Shopify tell you that it’s easy, but they use templates and themes; your websites will look just like all the others. A FutureProof Digital online shop is bespoke, no templates or themes, designed for your business from the ground up.

There’s so much to consider in the design of an E-Commerce website, and we are with you every step of the way. Payment gateways, PayPal and Stripe, product database and stock management, delivery options, customer accounts, discounts codes. And what’s most important is the system we give you is quick and easy for you to keep updated, leaving you free to do what you do best… run your business.

WooCommerce is the #1 WordPress E-Commerce solution, powering more than 12% of all web shops. We use it because it’s the best software available. WooCommerce, and its custom addon software, allows for any type of financial transaction online. If you run a charity you can take donations, a hotel can book rooms, a therapist can book appointments, and of course every type of product or service can be sold with ease.

WordPress Website Design

Our commitment to quality in web design starts with software, we cut no corners, we only use the best. Our software is extensively tested for speed, compatibility and optimization. We take great care to choose the suite of software your business needs, not because of cost, but to maximise the performance of your website…

WordPress powers 40% of all websites on the internet, and 300 of the top 1000. But that’s not why we use it, we use it because of you. WordPress web design is faster and better than any other platform; Wix, SquareSpace or Shopify are not in the same bracket. Faster means efficiency and value for money. Every client asks, “can I easily update the website myself ?” and the answer, most of the time is YES !! Some websites require a little training but in most cases a WordPress website is as easy to run as a Facebook page.

Choosing Your Domain Name. Subdomain vs Subfolder

Domain & Hosting

We work exclusively with a hosting provider called SiteGround, click here to learn more. We design and develop your website on our SiteGround hosting plan, then when complete we transfer the site to a new hosting plan for you. After that you pay them direct, no middleman.

In terms of domain name, it depends. If you plan to use .com then it’s easy; we can take care of all that for you with SiteGround and transfer ownership to you when complete. If you prefer .ie and most small businesses do, then it makes more sense for you to register the domain name yourself, and grant us access to set it up correctly. We recommend Hosting Ireland.

Small Business Web Design FAQ

Choosing a web design company or agency can be a daunting task; Weighing up their experience, portfolio of previous work, pricing, and communication skills. It’s also important to find a company that understands your business and industry and can develop a website that meets your specific needs and goals. Look for a company that has a strong reputation and positive reviews from previous clients, as well as a clear process for designing and developing websites. FutureProof Digital ticks these boxes.

While web design and web development are closely related, there are some key differences between the two. Web design typically focuses on the visual aspects of a website; its layout, colour scheme, typography, and images, with the goal of creating a visually appealing and user-friendly website. In contrast, web development focuses on the technical aspects of a website, including server configuration and database management, with the goal of creating a functional and reliable website. We have both covered, UI and UX.

Web design trends are constantly evolving, as designers and developers experiment with new technologies and aesthetics. Current web design trends include minimalist designs, the use of bold vibrant colours, the use of animations and videos, hand-drawn illustrations, asymmetrical layouts, and 3D elements. However, it’s important to note that not every trend will be suitable for every website. We can help guide you in choosing design elements that are both on-trend and appropriate for your brand.

Responsive websites are optimised for different screen sizes and devices. With well over 50% of all traffic now coming from mobile, having a website that is responsive has become essential. Responsive design ensures that a website’s layout, images, and text adapt to the user’s screen size, providing a seamless and enjoyable browsing experience. It can also have a positive impact on SEO; Google has stated that speed and responsiveness are ranking factors. FutureProof Digital websites are designed with “mobile first” front and centre.

Elementor is a professional web design tool. It is known as a visual website builder, but it does so much more than that. Used in conjunction with WordPress every aspect of your website is designed, not using a theme or template, but with your business branding. Menu, header and footer, single pages, single posts and archive pages. If you run an online store, Elementor is used to create your shop page, the product pages, the checkout pages and the customer account. Elementor is the magic that brings your website to life.

Crocoblock, the new kid on the block. It has changed WordPress, changed web development and changed web design. It’s a database management system and much more. It offers endless customisation and dynamic content possibilities. In plain English; we can develop ever increasing complexity, in half the time, whilst offering our clients a user experience and editing simplicity that was science fiction only a few years ago. Your website, powered by Crocoblock functions with the intelligence that in the past only large corporations could afford.

Having a well-designed, functional website is essential, but that isn’t enough. Equally important is to ensure that your website is found by your target audience. That’s Search Engine Optimization (SEO). SEO is the practice of optimising your website to achieve higher rankings in search engine results, thereby increasing your website’s visibility and traffic. At FutureProof Digital, we understand the crucial role SEO plays in the success of your website, which is why we integrate SEO best practices into every WordPress website design project.

RankMath SEO for WordPress Optimisation

RankMath is a powerful, feature-packed SEO plugin that simplifies on-page optimization and a number of automated tasks, helping to improve the rankings of your website and saving many hours in ongoing maintenance. It offers a range of functionalities that allow us to fine-tune various aspects of your website for your specific needs.

RankMath provides a detailed SEO analysis of each page you create and offers recommendations for improvements. This helps us, and you, ensure every aspect of your site, from meta tags to keyword density and images to internal linking, are optimised for SEO. With RankMath, you can optimise each page and post on your website for specific keywords. It also analyses your content for readability, helping to improve the quality of your content.

WooCommerce is the number one e-commerce solution for WordPress; that allows businesses to create a robust online store quickly and easily. With over 5 million active installations, WooCommerce is the most widely used e-commerce platform globally. It can be customised to meet the specific needs of our clients, and that’s why we use it every time. Events tickets, accommodation booking and product downloads are all just a few clicks away.

WooCommerce is easy to set up, even for non-technical users. It integrates seamlessly with WordPress, allowing businesses to create an online store quickly and easily. WooCommerce offers a wide range of customization options, allowing businesses to create a unique online store that reflects their brand and caters to their target audience. It is incredibly flexible, allowing businesses to sell physical and digital products, subscriptions, and even bookings. It supports various payment options, including credit cards, PayPal, and bank transfers.

WooCommerce is also SEO-friendly, making it easy for businesses to optimise their online store for search engines and attract organic traffic. It provides businesses with access to real-time analytics and reporting, allowing them to track sales, monitor customer behaviour, and make data-driven decisions to improve their online store’s performance.

Booking Appointments

E-Commerce Websites, when designed using WooCommerce, are not limited to selling physical or digital products. We can customise your website to book appointments; spa treatments or personal training sessions for example. Using e-commerce software to book appointments is convenient for both businesses and customers. Customers can book appointments at their own convenience, 24/7, without having to wait on the phone or in-person. Businesses, on the other hand, can streamline their appointment booking system and avoid double-booking or overbooking.

Crocoblock Jet Appointments

We integrate Jet Appointments software with WordPress and WooCommerce to develop a user-friendly booking system (both the client and the user). Crocoblock Jet Appointments is designed to simplify the process of scheduling and managing appointments on a website. It offers a range of features that allow website owners to create customizable booking forms, manage appointments, and communicate with their customers.

Managing appointments is made easy with Crocoblock Jet Appointments. Website owners can view and manage appointments from a central dashboard, making it easy to keep track of all appointments and schedule changes. The software can also send email notifications to clients and admins to confirm appointments and remind them of upcoming appointments. Admins can also sync their appointment schedule with their Google Calendar, making it easy to keep track of appointments on the go.

Selling Event Tickets

WooCommerce can be set up to sell event tickets. These events can be a week, a day, or even an hour in duration, a guided tour for example. Each use case requires WooCommerce to be customised in a different way, and a different software is used for a single ticket event that lasts an hour, than a week-long conference.

WooCommerce Box Office

WooCommerce Box Office is just one of the software extensions we use for configuring E-Commerce Websites for event tickets. The plugin offers a range of features that make it easy to create and manage events, sell tickets, and track ticket sales.

WooCommerce Box Office gives us the ability to create customizable event pages. We create unique event pages for each event, complete with event details, images, and ticket sales information. The plugin includes a range of options for setting event details; date, time, location and more. Ticket prices, ticket availability, and multiple ticket types can also be set up.

At FutureProof Digital, we believe your own website should be an authentic representation of your brand, a powerful tool for communicating your business values, personality, and vision. That’s why we insist upon custom design in each and every development process, ensuring every element aligns perfectly with your unique brand and business goals. Some WordPress themes are great, but they are all in some way, a compromise. We offer 100% satisfaction, we need to be 100% in control of every detail.

The Importance of Custom Design

A well-designed website is much more than just design. It’s a reflection of your business, your brand, and your story. Custom design creates a distinct and memorable brand presence online. Your website has to stand out in a crowded digital market, reinforce your brand identity, and build credibility with your customers. If you have “just another website” that won’t happen.

Pre-built templates might be easy and fast, but they can’t match the level of personalization that a custom design offers. When we create a custom design for your WordPress website, we do it to ensure that your brand’s tone, style, and message are clear, front and centre, a coherent user experience that drives engagement and conversions.

The FutureProof Digital design Process

Our custom web design process begins with understanding your business inside out. We get to know your industry, your target audience, and your business goals. With this understanding as a foundation we create a design strategy tailored to your needs. We work collaboratively with you, taking your inputs and feedback seriously, every step of the way. Every element is chosen based on your brand identity; colours, typography, imagery, and layout, ensuring a visual continuity, to solidify your brand presence.

Every detail of your own website, from the homepage to contact forms, is crafted with purpose. Functionality works hand-in-hand with aesthetics, ensuring your website is not only visually captivating but easy to navigate and user-friendly, driving traffic through the site and maximising conversions.

Custom WordPress Admin Dashboard

Yes, what your customers see is important, but what about you, the person running the website? While an attractive and user-friendly design is crucial, at FutureProof Digital, the inner workings of your website are equally important. A large part of this lies in the admin dashboard – the command centre of your WordPress website. Everything about your new website is a custom design, and that includes the admin area. Our goal is to make the back-end management of WordPress as effortless and efficient as running a Facebook page. We might not be there yet, but we’re close !!

The Role of the Admin Dashboard

The admin dashboard is the control panel for your website, the place where you manage content, track performance, adjust settings, and much more. With an admin dashboard tailored to your specific needs, tasks are streamlined and managing your site is made simpler and faster. It allows you quick access to the features you use most, presenting them in a clear, user-friendly way, avoiding the confusion of 100 menu items that you will never use.

Whether you frequently update your blog, manage an e-commerce store, track visitor stats, or run regular marketing campaigns, we organise your dashboard to make these tasks as straightforward as possible. We rearrange, add, or remove widgets to ensure your dashboard is uncluttered and functional, improving your productivity and making your website a breeze to manage.

Staff Training & Video Guide

While we take care of the initial setup, understanding how to make the most of your dashboard will help you manage your site more effectively. We provide full training and a video guide, everything you need to get the most from your new website, including tips on content management, SEO best practices, and data analysis. In addition, we are always available for support, should you have any queries. More than a website design agency, FutureProof Digital is your partner dedicated to your success.

At FutureProof Digital, our services go beyond just crafting attractive and functional WordPress websites. We offer a full suite of services to not just launch your digital presence, but to nurture, grow, and maintain it. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive solution to all your digital needs under one roof.
