Why Hire A Shopify Development Agency?

Shopify is a cloud-based e-commerce platform and it's intuitive interface simplifies the process of displaying products, processing payments, and arranging shipments. Our Web Developers in Minneapolis will build your Shopify website, then you’ll be able to easily run your online store and manage maintenance/updates for the site on your own.

Websites designed for commerce have more development needs than standard sites. They typically attract more traffic, and they require more complicated features such as shopping carts, payment processing, taxes, and shipping. Our Shopify Development Minneapolis team uses the following process to address the unique challenges of developing high-performing e-commerce sites:

Phases of Shopify Store Development

Discovery: During this stage, our e-commerce team digs into the details of what your e-commerce site needs to support, such as coupons, inventory tracking, back ordering, customer reviews, shipping, multi-dimensional product attributes, suggested products, and more.

Level of Effort Estimate: Once your requirements are clear, our website development planning team will determine the best platform and tools for your budget. Then, we'll provide you with a detailed estimate that we can review together. You'll be in a position to make an informed decision.

Project Kickoff: With a signed contract in place, we'll schedule a kickoff meeting and outline the project plan and schedule.

Status Meetings: Over the course of your project, we'll hold regular status meetings with you to review progress and keep you informed.

Quality Assurance: We put the best practices to the test to ensure the site is working and functioning the way it should and incorporate regular testing into our development process.

Deployment: We can handle deployment to your established hosting environment, or we can help you decide between our favorite website hosting providers.

Our Shopify agency in Minneapolis process starts with a quality, well-optimized website.

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Shopify Development

Is Shopify the right website platform choice for my business?

Shopify is a great option for businesses looking for a platform that is easy to update and compared to other options, the most maintenance free. That comes with a monthly fee depending on your package. We can discuss your options and whether Shopify is a good fit for your business.

what is the difference between a shopify theme and a custom shopify website?

Shopify themes are prepackaged templates that are available on the Shopify theme store, and they function as the “presentation layer” of your website. They are free to $200.00 to purchase. The benefits include: easy to use, affordable and quick to market. The drawbacks are: generic(your store will look like others), functionally limited, meaning that you have to work within that theme, there isn't much customization and they are limited in their options.

Custom Shopify site provides you a user interface designed specifically for your users’ needs and your business objectives. Everything from information architecture to the aesthetic and functions of the website reflect your business’s brand. This means that your store is truly unique and stands out from the rest of the pack. The benefits include: Unique design, functionality and unlimited options and customizations. Drawbacks are: Cost and time. Custom Shopify will cost more money because of the customization of the code and unique design, although, it is valuable and a great investment for businesses looking for more.

How much would i expect to pay an agency for a shopify site?

A standard prepackaged theme website, assuming you choose to build the site with SEO in mind, would start at $3,000 and go up from there. A custom Shopify theme would start around $7,000 and up. 

We have been doing the same thing for years, nothing really changed. Then we decided to make a change and bring in an agency to assist us with growing our online reach, I'm so glad we did! 301 Madison Consulting did a great job in building our new website and giving our social media the boost it so badly needed.

I've worked with many agencies, but I have not worked with one that has the honesty, integrity and transparency of 301 Madison Consulting. From start to where we are today, they implement strategies and are completely honest and transparent with the process, success and costs. I would recommend Cale and his team to anyone looking for a boost online.
