Optimize your ecommerce website through good web design techniques

With the increased number people doing their shopping online there has been an increase of businesses offering ecommerce services on the web. Ecommerce is the selling of products and services online. With the increase of business offering Ecommerce services online, it is very important for people wishing to setup ecommerce websites to ensure that they stay ahead of the competition. This is because some Ecommerce sites might be selling products or services similar to what you are selling. To do better than the rest Ecommerce site owners should ensure that their websites are optimised for use. One way that your website may be optimised is by ensuring that it is designed properly. Design of the website should be user centred. User centred websites designers focus on user experience when designing their websites.

In this article we are going to discuss about some of the design tips for ecommerce websites. These tips should be considered by designers who want to design ecommerce websites. Proper design is necessary since it keeps users focused on what you are offering on your website. By customers being focused on your products your business can make more sales than when your website is no designed to be user friendly.

Only important visual content should be used

Designers should first of all ensure that the website they are designing does not have much visual and audio content which may slow down the loading of the website on a customer’s browser. While visual effects are important to a website, when they are over done they make the website load slowly. With excessive visual effects the website looks cluttered and customers may fail to see the products you are selling. Due to the slow loading of websites with much visual content users may be impatient and cancel navigation to the site. Designers should therefore concentrate on what the main objective of an ecommerce website is. The main aim is to sell products.

Provide users with simple navigation system

Designers should also ensure that the website they have designed has a simple navigation. When a designer uses a complex navigation system users may find it difficult to find what they are looking for. This will make the user frustrated and he/she may leave the site.

Ensure payment and checkout system is easy to use

The checkout and payment system of the website should be easy to use. When complicated systems of payment and checking out of the website are used, users may opt to cancel their orders.

Provide auto complete search bar

An ecommerce website designer should always consider having a search bar on the website. The search bar should not be the traditional search bars which only return results. A good search bar for an ecommerce website should also have an auto-complete feature which gives user suggestions on what they are looking for.

Provide easy to access product reviews

An ecommerce site should also consider provide easy access to product reviews. Designers should consider this since most customers are not convinced to buy a product by viewing minimal information about it. The best product review feature is one which shows up when the user hovers the mouse over it.

Update user on product availability

Product availability and the current number of the product in your store should be shown clearly. If not shown clearly users may reach the checkout page and realize the product is out of stock. This makes customers lose faith in your business.

Provide a shopping cart at every page

A good ecommerce site should provide an easy to use shopping cart. The shopping cart should always be accessible no matter what page a user is accessing. This makes the customer know what he/she has already ordered and how much it’s going to cost him/her. This improves the overall customer experience.

Ten steps to set up your own website

GeoCities Closing 1. All websites need a website address. This is also known as a ‘domain name‘, or ‘url’. These can be purchased through numerous companies on the internet, but we can purchase these on your behalf to make the whole process easier for you.

2. What next? Once you have a domain name you will need some ‘web hosting’. This is in effect rented space on a server. Payment for this is usually paid on an annual basis and allows you to display web pages on the internet. Again this is something we can arrange for all our clients.

3. The points above give you an idea of a couple of the terms involved with web design, but there isn’t much point in arranging to purchase either, unless you have an idea of the cost involved in creating your website and if it falls within your budget. So your first port of call is to obtain a quote(s) for the design of your website.

Quotes will vary from company to company and from project to project, obviously the more complex the project, the higher the price you will be quoted. (click to here to request a free quote from us)

4. Ok, so you have your quote what’s next? Well if you are happy with the quote you can give the design company the go ahead to design your website for you. They will probably then issue you with an invoice for a deposit, which in most cases is used to purchase your domain name and web hosting, mentioned above.

You will then need to have an idea of the pages you will want on your website. Typically these will include pages such as an ‘about us’ page, a ‘services’ page, a ‘contact us’ page and so on….

Getting your content ready for your site is your next step. We recommend typing your content up using a program like Microsoft Word or Works.

5. While you are putting your content together your web designer will be putting together a layout for your site. After your initial enquiry we will ask you for any ideas you have regarding the colour scheme or ‘look and feel’ of your website. Some clients have logos, or have seen something on another website that they perhaps want incorporated into one of their own.

6. Your designer will present you with an initial layout(s) they have put together. We initially design a layout for a site using Photoshop, making it easy to alter and update.

7. The client then advises the designer of their initial thoughts, whether they like the design, any changes required etc. and the process moves forward from there. Once the design has been finalised it can then be turned into a web page. Once this is done they will ask you to check it and then work can commence on creating all your web pages.

8. Your content, is then used for each of the pages you require and designed using the design that has been put together for your website.

9. Once all your web pages have been designed, you effectively have your website. These can be uploaded to your ‘web space’ (eg. web hosting) and checked.

10. You have set up your own website. Your website is ready to test and to go live, ready to bring in that extra business for you!

You can usually force a search engine to include a stop word in your query by using the inclusion operator (the plus sign), but must use the operator for each stop word in your query.
