You’ve decided to open your own online shop, but now what? Choosing the right platform to establish your online presence and host your shop is a critical decision. While Shopify has gained popularity as a user-friendly and convenient solution, there’s a compelling case to be made for the power and versatility of a custom-built e-commerce website.

Inflation… Recession… The market is up… The market is down… How is a small business owner supposed to budget for anything when the economy is so unpredictable? But we can’t really stop moving, can we? As the owner of a small business, I speak first-hand when I say that none of us should be sitting still right now. Now is not the time to be pulling back or slowing your marketing efforts. Quite the opposite – we should all be ramping them up. If you want to grab any piece of business that’s out there, the only way to do that is to get in front of new customers. And nowadays, the only logical way to do that is on the internet.

When properly executed, the form and functionality of a website work together to meet a company’s business goals, while simultaneously building confidence in the brand and highlighting their expertise to potential customers. From a marketing perspective, that can be a tall order to fill. To that end, a website’s user interface (UI) can play a significant role in how people perceive your brand. This is especially true for one of our most recent clients, Wellgate Technologies. As experts in custom software development specializing in mobile apps, Wellgate needed a web design that could successfully portray the high-tech nature of what they do and their own design and development proficiency.

There are many reasons it makes sense to incorporate a location-finder on a website. The most common example is a retail chain with multiple locations. Customers may want an easier way than Google to find the one closest to them. They just enter their zip code and the “store finder” finds the nearest locations, usually ordered by distance. Another good example is a professional organization with many members, each having their own brick-and-mortar establishment. Potential customers want to search only these members since they belong to this trusted organization. That is exactly what the New York State Chiropractic Association’s (NYSCA) Suffolk County chapter needed – an easy way for patients to find participating doctors close to them.
