Choose the right eCommerce platform – BigCommerce or Shopify?
“The sooner we drop the ‘e’ out of ‘e-commerce’ and just call it commerce, the better.” Bob Willett, former President of Best Buy International and CIO of Best Buy
Online commerce is rapidly becoming the business norm, and it has created a digital transformation–so whatever area of trade you are involved in, having an e-commerce store is essential. Whether you’re starting out in business or are looking to expand your operation, finding the right builder for your online enterprise is a difficult decision. For most customers, it comes down to a choice between the two leading platforms: Shopify and BigCommerce.
Both platforms make it easy to sell products, regardless of whether they are physical or digital – online. Both platforms run in a web browser. The benefit of this is that you do not need to store anything on your desktop or laptop computer. Everything is stored in the cloud, meaning you can manage your business from anywhere in the world, just so long as you have an internet connection.
Both products allow you to build your online store without needing any design or computer coding skills. You simply choose your desired look based on your favorite Shopify examples or BigCommerce themes, upload your products along with the necessary descriptions and image gallery, set your prices and then launch your store.
Both Shopify and BigCommerce employ a clean, user-friendly interface with a gentle learning curve that makes it easy for new users to get to grips with the system in almost no time at all. However, although you don’t need to use a web designer when creating your Shopify or BigCommerce website, you do need an eye for good design. Furthermore, the pictures of your products also need to be of the highest possible quality if you want to ensure your store looks slick and professional.
This is where Blackbelt Commerce comes in. As both BigCommerce partners and Shopify masters, we can help you to refine your store, tweaking and customizing the themes or templates so that the final product is more individual and fully geared towards the specific needs of your business. Such as which theme and customization are ideal for a business’s brand.
Dazzling Web design by the Shopify Experts
You only get one chance to make a first impression, so it’s important that your online store is instantly appealing to potential customers. Although there are a wide range of both free and paid for BigCommerce templates and Shopify themes to choose from, your store will benefit far more from having a custom design.
Blackbelt Commerce The Top Web Developers will Provide you with:
- A store that is unique and tightly focused on your brand.
- SEO-friendly design.
- Superior user-experience features.
- All the additional functionality you desire.
- SEO & Content Marketing Strategies that will ensure organic traffic
The many customization options available with the two top eCommerce platforms allow you to alter the look, feel, and functionality of your online store to suit your needs. Customization is key to having a product that stands out from the crowd. We at Blackbelt Commerce will dive into the CSS, HTML or Liquid of your theme and make the necessary changes. We will also work in other areas such as product development, advertising or marketing.
Our team can not only create what amounts to a bespoke store based on your basic platform but can also keep abreast of upgrades, bug fixes and other necessary details to keep your store running smoothly.
Customer-Centric Commerce as Shopify Experts Provide Its Clients
It’s also important to ensure your store is both mobile and tablet friendly as an increasing number of customers are making online purchases using such devices. Our established Shopify cheat sheet and BigCommerce developer unit enable Blackbelt Commerce to create your ideal store with ease.
It is essential to be thinking of the customer experience in every aspect of your business. Failure to do so can damage your ability to convert visitors into sales. From Shopify PayPal integration to BigCommerce support, we can help you optimize your store to ensure customers receive the best possible experience each and every time.
“Customer service shouldn’t just be a department, it should be the entire company” Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos
Maximize your marketing efforts
No matter how amazing your e-commerce store ends up looking, you won’t be able to grow your sales and build your business unless customers are able to find your store in the first place. Regardless of how amazing the products or services you sell are, your entire enterprise could fall flat if you don’t have the necessary marketing expertise.
At Blackbelt Commerce, we specialize in social media marketing – SMM, search engine optimization – SEO, and Content Marketing & Content Strategies intended to help your business find new customers. As a business owner, we believe the best use of your time is to run the business itself. To help you do this, we can:
- Optimize your marketing budget for maximum effectiveness.
- Boost your Google rankings through the use of specially selected keywords, tailored especially for your BigCommerce or Shopify store.
- Raise your level of brand recognition.
- Update your social media channels to increase customer interaction.
We can also help you to extend the reach of your brand by using the Shopify affiliate app to bring more potential customers to your site.
First-Class Functionality by the Top Shopify Experts
Having a wide range of products available on your online store is great, but if your store is difficult for customers to navigate, you will be losing potential sales. Regardless of which platform you opt to choose, we can help ensure your customers enjoy a seamless user-experience by organizing your products and collections in the most optimum fashion.
From BigCommerce templates that make the journey from product page to checkout as simple as possible, to know how to send customers a Shopify discount code to encourage them to return to an abandoned shopping cart, we can add the functionality you need to optimize your conversions. Let us help you:
- Install the most appropriate product filters.
- Create ideal tags and product descriptions to help customers find what they are looking for.
- Streamline your check-out process.
Feature-Rich but Fuss-Free All Done by the Best Web Developers
For owners of small businesses making their first foray into the world of e-commerce, it’s all too easy to be swayed by the latest fads and trends such the use of animation, advanced filtering or 360-degree product views, and to spend time attempting to incorporate them onto their sites.
While such elements may help your site appeal to some potential customers, there are a number of e-commerce features that should be higher on the list of priorities when it comes to creating a Shopify or BigCommerce that will best engage customers. Such features include:
- User generated reviews.
- Related items suggestions.
- Detailed shipping information.
Studies show that the star rating of a product is a key factor behind purchasing decisions. Although you may think products with negative reviews will suffer poor sales, this is not always the case as products with only positive reviews are often treated with suspicion as it is assumed they are fake or that negative reviews have been deliberately censored.
Wishlists not only assist customers by helping them to keep track of items they may want to purchase, but also provide valuable insights for future marketing campaigns and assist with making suggestions for related items.
A user-friendly interface that provides clear and detailed shipping information is essential if you want to minimize the chances of potential customers ending their interaction at the checkout stage and abandoning their shopping cart due to encountering unexpected costs.
The Blackbelt Commerce team can ensure your Shopify or BigCommerce site is optimized so that the most popular e-commerce features are available to all of your customers.
If you have a real-world physical shop as well as an online one, we can help you to link the two, ensuring that when items are out of stock, this information is available to online buyers as soon as possible. You can also make use of POS software to replace your traditional till. You will also be able to:
- Save time by having your inventory sync automatically.
- See a visual timeline of sales and orders, all in one place.
- Use your tablet device to account for cash sales in your store.
Linking your online store to the real world, either by having a permanent physical location or by having occasional pop-up stores or live events, can bring you closer to your customers and add value to their transactions.
If you do have a brick and mortar store, adding find-in-store functionality to your website is one of the most popular e-commerce features around. For some shoppers, even same-day shipping isn’t quite quick enough, and they would prefer to have the option of reserving an item and collecting it from your physical store themselves.
Unless your products are truly unique, you are likely to be competing with other companies for the same customer base. Offering genuine additional value and providing them with enhanced levels of customer experience during their transactions can provide a significant boost to your business.
“The reason it seems that price is all your customers care about is that you haven’t given them anything else to care about.” Seth Godin, Founder of Squidoo.com, former VP of Direct Marketing at Yahoo!
Picking a SaaS Platform – Will it be Shopify or BigCommerce?
If you’re still unsure about which platform would best suit your particular e-commerce business, both Shopify and BigCommerce offer a free trial period during which you can try out many of the features to get the best possible feel for what it would be like to run your enterprise from that particular platform.
Ultimately, the choice of platform is likely to come down to personal preference in terms of themes, templates, the ease of transition to the new system based on your existing platform or specific features, and options that make either Shopify or BigCommerce a better match for your specific enterprise.
With extensive experience in both platforms, Blackbelt Commerce is ideally suited to give you the best possible advice to let you make the decision that will help your business succeed.
