Online shop website design on Shopify

Ready to elevate your website and want somebody to do the work for you? Hand the project over to an ecommerce expert and get the benefit of my 1:1 training as well. Whether it's a new or existing Shopify store I'll take care of it and you can continue to optimise your website once I hand it back over to you.

For new Shopify stores

Want to focus on launching your brand and not learning to create an ecommerce website? It's so exciting starting a new brand but there's a lot to do, I know because of worked with lots of founders who are just starting out. Instead, you can hand over the design and build of your Shopify store to me and you'll also benefit from 11+ years of ecommerce knowledge in our training sessions.

From £4,000

For existing Shopify stores

Ready to hand over your website to an expert? If you feel your current Shopify store isn’t good enough or perhaps you started with a free theme and haven’t had the chance to update it. I'll fully audit your existing store and then recommend, design and install a new Shopify 2.0 theme for you, which will make you feel like you have a brand new website which is also now optimised for conversion.

How we'll work togther on your Shopify store

Discovery call

It's always great to chat first and make sure we're the right fit for each other. I start all my projects this way so you know who you'll be working with and to make sure you like me

Project management

I manage the whole Shopify project on Trello (don't worry if you haven't used it before I'll show you around). So you'll be invited to join your own private board where we can communicate and see what tasks we each have to get the project finished. I'll also need you to send over all your assets and brand guidelines which will help me get started on designing your website.

Brand questionnaire

Within your Trello board will be an in-depth brand questionnaire, this helps me get to know you and your brand before we start the project so I can fully absorb and understand your goals.

Kick-off call

The kick-off call is our chance to run through any problems, issues or questions you might have before I start to build and design your website. I'll also make sure you're happy with the theme choice and a rough outline of the website layout and functionality. It's also a great time to discuss any apps or extra customisations that are needed

Website build + training

This is where you can sit back, relax and leave the hard work to me. I'll be building or redesigning your website and ensuring we regularly catch up if needed, you'll get the chance to see the progress at every stage and make comments and changes. We'll also start your training right away so get ready to learn

Support + aftercare

Once the website is ready to launch, we'll have another call to make sure you're happy with everything. I'll also schedule some training calls, depending on what you need most help with so that you can fully manage your site going forward. I am also on hand for two weeks post-launch for any extra questions you have.

Why ask me to design your Shopify store?

I specialise in all things ecommerce for small and growing online businesses. I created The Ecommerce Assistant to help busy brand owners make more sales on their own websites by teaching them how to use Shopify + Klaviyo.

Shopify store design FAQs

How long does a Shopify store take to build?

I usually like to quote 4-8 weeks for a Shopify website project. It will depend on the complexity of your website and how much work needs doing. I only ever take on one or two projects like this at once so you'll always have my undivided attention for the duration of our time together

Do you only design online shops on Shopify?

Yes. Because I'm an expert in using Shopify and this is what I spend my time on, whether that's training, building websites or my online courses. I am not a web developer so I find that Shopify is the best platform for most people as it is so easy to use and keep updated and you don't need to learn anything complicated to then fully manage it yourself. My website is also built (by me) on Shopify so you can see what yours might look like

How you take payment for projects?

I take a 50% deposit to get you booked in, this is because I only work with one or two clients at a time on a bigger project like this and you're securing a time in my diary to get started. The remaining 50% is due once your website is completed. If you need to discuss payment plans, please get in touch as I am happy to chat more.

Can I do some of the work myself?

Sure, the majority will be done by me but often to save on cost and time clients will make product page updates themselves (with full training and guidance from me). I find this helps you learn more going forward too. If you would prefer to just learn from me, then take a look at my training packages instead. On our discovery call we can discuss what sort of level of work you need me to do and what you'd like to tackle yourself

What other small businesses have you worked with?

I've worked with a huge variety of small business, from net curtains to handmade chocolate, t-shirts to notebooks. I don't have a niche and I love the variety of clients I get to work with. To read what pervious clients have to say about me click here.

When can we get started?

Typically I book a few months ahead of time, but I try and keep my contact page and emails up-to-date with my next available slot. If you have a certain deadline in mind just get in touch and we can talk more.
