FAQs

Q. Will I be able to add and edit products, product photos, prices, and descriptions myself?

You bet! WooCommerce is easy to use, and we’ll provide a training session so you feel confident updating your online store yourself.

Q. Which ecommerce platform is the best?

There are many ecommerce platforms to choose from: SquareSpace, Wix, Shopify, Square, BigCommerce, Volusion, and many more. We prefer WooCommerce because it’s customizable, comes with many great built-in ecommerce features, and has over 400 extensions for added functionality. We also offer custom programming solutions for customers who require niche or more advanced ecommerce functionality.

Q. Is WooCommerce SEO friendly?

Yes! WooCommerce runs on WordPress, which is recognized as one of the best platforms for SEO. And, we follow industry-recognized SEO best practices, such as optimizing for speed/performance, mobile responsiveness, schema markup, and more.

Q. Will my online store work on mobile devices?

Yes! We follow Google’s recommended approach for building mobile-friendly websites, which is responsive design. This means the website “responds” or adjusts to the screen it’s being viewed on, whether that’s a large monitor, laptop, tablet, or mobile device. Given that mobile shopping (or “m-commerce”) is on the rise, you may opt for a “mobile-first” approach, where the site is designed first from the perspective of how it will look and function on a mobile device – paying special attention to things like tap area, offering mobile payments, etc.

Q. Who will I be working with?

What our clients say about us.

“Both our Mepps and Mister Twister fishing lure brands have been fortunate enough to work with DigiSage for the past 23 years and we could not be any happier with the amount of time and professionalism DigiSage has shown us. They are constantly adapting their work to better fit the needs of customers in today’s technology-driven world.

Our very first ever Mepps.com website was created by Tim Lindner in a bedroom of his parents’ house and since that time, Tim, Bob and their great cast of employees at DigiSage have continually helped improve our website design while increasing our sales numbers by offering a state-of-the-art website that is custom-made to fit the needs of our business.

If you are looking for a professional web development & marketing company that will always follow through on their promises and do it with smiles on their faces, then DigiSage is no doubt the company you are looking for. We would absolutely recommend their services to anyone and everyone.”

Need More Help?

We want to set you up for success, so we’re here to help with nearly every aspect of creating your online store (sorry, you’ll need to work with your accountant for tax questions!).

Product Photography Learn More

Good quality photos are essential to selling online. Often, stores will only include one or two images per product—generally, this isn’t enough for visitors to make decisions about a product! Stores should aim to use three to five images per product, and not just for expensive products.

Product photography should show the products in scale, call out special features, show what’s included with the product (such as attachments, add-ons, etc.), show different angles, and include a lifestyle image to help the visitor picture themselves using and enjoying the product. And, the product photos should be of sufficient size and quality to allow visitors to zoom in on the image to get the detail they need in order to make a purchase.

If you need high-quality product photography, we can shoot product photos in our studio, or conduct an on-site photo shoot for lifestyle photography.

Photo Retouching and Customization Learn More

Have photos, but they need a little TLC? Or, do you need product photos customized to show your branding, color options, or other variations? Need the photos’ backgrounds removed? Our Creative Director is a Photoshop and InDesign whiz, and can have a full line-up of your product photos customized and looking their best in no time. For products that have numerous color options, we can create a tool that dynamically generates isolated color options which reduces the need for individual photos of each option.

Graphic Design Support Learn More

If you need additional graphic design support for collateral materials, logo design, packaging design, etc., we can help!

SEO Copywriting Learn More

You know everything there is to know about your products, but if you just can’t quite find the right words to entice buyers, we can help provide expert, SEO copywriting services for product descriptions, your company overview, blogging, and more.

Email Marketing Learn More

Sending regular enewsletters to your customers (and prospective customers) can be a great way to stay top-of-mind and generate sales. Let us take this task off your platewe’ll design a beautiful, on-brand email template, then send regular emails on your behalf using a professional email marketing platform. You’ll receive regular performance reports and updates.

We can also provide expert advice and support to make the most of the other emails your store should be sending: transactional emails such as the order receipt, shipment notification, order cancellation and order refund emails; and marketing emails such as a “welcome” email, thank you emails, product education, and feedback requests.

Digital Advertising Learn More

Competition for online shoppers is high, so it’s important to proactively drive traffic to your online store. We can help by designing and managing online marketing campaigns that generate real results (read: sales). 

Process

You might be wondering how all of this comes together. We’ve developed a streamlined, repeatable, and efficient process for developing ecommerce websites. While there’s many details that occur ‘behind the scenes,’ we’ve outlined at a high level what you can expect, below. Wondering how long your site will take to build? We’ll discuss that following your initial consultation, as it can vary based on the size and complexity of your particular site.

1.

Consultation

During your free, no-obligation consultation, we’ll help you determine which DigiSage ecommerce package is right for you. We’ll discuss which products your site will carry, whether you want inventory management capabilities, which payment processor is right for you, which payment methods you want to accept, and your tax requirements, shipping methods, and ideal checkout process. Based on this initial consultation, we’ll provide a cost estimate and detailed project proposal.

2.

Strategy + Design

If you opted for a custom design, we’ll facilitate a strategy session to determine your design preferences, then our Creative Director will create a made-for-you concept.

3.

Asset Collection & Store Settings

At this point, you’ll need to begin collecting assets for the store. We’ll need a list of your products, including product categories and tags, product options/variations, product descriptions, and product photography; in addition to the regular site content, such as your About Us page, Meet the Team, return policy, etc. (or you can work with us to develop these).

4.

Programming

At this point, the plan for the site has been set, the design is finished, and we have all the assets we need to begin programming.

5.

Testing

Once the site is programmed, we fully test the site in a variety of browsers and operating systems, including mobile devices and tablets, to ensure everything looks and functions as designed. Once we’ve completed our testing, you are invited to review the site as well.

6.

Training

We’ll conduct a training session with you to ensure you’re comfortable managing the site. We also provide a user manual.

7.

Final changes and launch

Now, we make any final changes needed to the site, review our extensive pre-launch checklist, and launch the site!
