Responsive eCommerce Website Design Update

Read entire post: Responsive eCommerce Website Design Update

Time to refresh your business website.

Web design and user experience can play a significant part in the success and growth of your online business. You need a design that reflects your brand and one that works across a range of platforms, browsers and devices. You might not know it but eCorner has an in-house design team that can work with you to create the ultimate design!

Online Sales Growth

We’ve seen online sales grow significantly over the last 12-18 months as people shift more towards contact-less trading. The largest growth area that we’ve seen is in mobile sales – that is online purchases made by mobile phones and tablets.

The way in which your website displays and functions on mobile devices is extremely important. It should be “responsive” meaning that it will automatically adapt or respond to the type of device (laptop, tablet, mobile phone etc) that is accessing the site and display the appropriate design.

Design Update Packages

eCorner has some outstanding new design themes that we can tailor to your needs or we can create a custom theme just for your website and online store. You can get a new responsive theme installed from just $1,400.00 or a customised theme from just $2,000.00. eCorner will provide a quote for you based on your initial brief.

Once the new design is installed eCorner will assist to optimise the website and look at key settings and search engines factors. Contact us now for a free consultation and quote.

We’re including some recent design projects to give you an idea of what can be achieved for a very modest investment.

Mobile Responsive Design

Over 70% of ecommerce sales now come from mobile devices. But many online store operators still see the desktop as the main view of their website.

Mobile responsiveness refers to how well a website runs on a mobile device with a smaller screen, such as a smartphone. Mobile responsiveness is important for online retail and ecommerce websites as more consumers are searching and buying using their mobile phones. What makes mobile responsiveness possible is the design used on the website.

Design for mobile devices needs to take into account important features to improve usability:

  1. Size and complexity of the web pages
  2. Size of images displayed on mobiles
  3. Simpler touch navigation
  4. Use of focused icons and not long text links
  5. Reduced text in conversions
  6. Simpler basket process

The design and layout of your website will change when viewed on mobile devices and the design elements will be simplified. But the full functionality of the online store needs to be retained.

Mobile Menu and Search

The website menu allows the consumer visiting the website to browse and find the products that they want to view and buy. So you need to make the process as easy as possible. But the reality is that over 80% of visitors coming to a website on smart phones will use search and not category browse to find what they need. So when transitioning from desktop and tablet view to mobile phone view the category menu will take less landscpe and the search bar should be more focused for visitors.

But with large websites with thousands or categories, browse just may not be practical and so the search capabilities need to be intuitive and fast. Predictive and filtered search results are essential on mobile devices.

What is the next step?

Getting a new design for your website and online shop is a easy process but does need your input. eCorner will provide example designs and recommendations based on what best fits your business. Designs mockups are created on a testing version of the website so that it can be reviewed without impacting the production website. When the design is approved we schedule, and agree, a time to update the production website. This typically is a fast process and does not impact the website operation.
