To keep ahead of the curve, savvy online retailers are enabling their customers to experience optimal viewing across multiple platforms—from desktop, to mobile to tablet. When that is your objective, we use our expertise in responsive design to size and adapt images on your main site to mobile environments without compromising the user experience.
Conversions are important, but does a low conversion rate signal 'game over'?
Absolutely not. High conversion rates can turn more browsers into buyers, but there's more to the story. Remember, your website is iterative. We can provide you with analytics that help you measure your results to determine what in your marketing and/or site functionality is, or isn't, user friendly. Then you can test the waters to determine what will work better. As important, our value of seeing Done The Wright Way clients as partners results in our building long-term relationships with them. A website launch does not signal our work is done. Our clients typically choose to engage with us long after their site is launched to keep on top of changing trends and enhance their sites as their business grows.
How can I be sure that my website will display on all browsers?
Browser compatibility is very important to growing your business. CSS, the base of responsive design, addresses this issue and allows your visitors to view your website with the precision of its design in most browsers—and, you're right, there are plenty of new ones. What's more, while some of the older browsers versions may be more challenging, our knowledge of web technology and our comprehensive testing during development enable us to work out any bugs.
Our website relies on photos of varying sizes to showcase our product lines. Can I be sure the photos will display accurately from wide-screen desktops to smaller sizes like tablets & mobile?
We can help you to optimize your image content and help you downsize the resolution of your images so that they adapt to the size of the screen on which your customers view your site at any given time. The point is to optimize your images by preventing them from having a too-high resolution from the get-go. An approach recommended by many experts: Find a common ground. Design (images) for the smaller device and prepare to adjust up for larger screens.
Does marketing become more difficult because responsive website design accommodates a range of screen sizes
Many experts believe that marketing actually becomes simpler through a website developed with responsive website design. With responsive web design, you are driving people toward a single URL and a single site. There is no confusion over URL for either website search or email interaction because there is no ".m" or ".t." This makes your marketing efforts easier and less time-consuming for your customer.

We also integrate Google Analytics which supports features such as cross device and cross platform measurement and social reports.

I started my business as a second and part-time career and early on employed apps that are siloed for the growth my business is experiencing today. Where do I go from here?

SEO / SEM
I heard SEO for eCommerce websites differ from normal SEO. Is this true, and, if so, why and how?
Yes, that's true. SEO for eCommerce is more detailed than traditional SEO. Successful eCommerce SEO relies on many disciplines: conversion rate through optimization, analytics, web design and development preferably in eCommerce, economy, usability and user experience. An understanding of buying behaviors, a knowledge of commerce and retail business functions, and social media marketing and communication are also essential. Because of these diverse requirements, experts recommend eRetailers turn to consultants or companies who have this depth and breadth of expertise.
At what point in the development process should I expect to integrate SEO into the design process?
Immediately. SEO must be integrated into the business website early in the planning phase, before you even start working on your wireframes and design. Failing to carve out your SEO strategy on the front-end can cause unexpected problems when you're ready to launch or create obstacles to success later.
Can I continue to manage SEO for new products when my product line is always changing; both seasonally and otherwise?
This has to be handled carefully but is manageable with the right skill—another reason experts recommend that retailers turn to consultants and companies with SEO expertise. At Done The Wright Way, we understand that establishing good information architecture, website structure and internal link architecture at the outset are essential to rank new product pages well.
If I use your services, or the services of another SEO professional, how long will it take me to get on Page 1 of Google?
If you're initiating a paid Search Engine Marketing ad, you can be placed on the first page of Google within about 24 hours if the services firm uses Google AdWords. We do an organic campaign, however, takes more time. Organic search involves natural listings. To produce these results, Google uses a series of metrics to ensure that your site is relevant. To have your site show here, you have to score well on that algorithmic test, and many variables are involved. To get a handle on your organic search potential, it is best to meet with Done The Wright Way' SEO team.
For effective search, what is the best organization for my website?
We subscribe to the sequence of home page, category then products. Next to the home page, category pages are the most popular and influential ones. Therefore, we treat category pages as individual home pages. We also believe in building deep links to product categories: guest blogging, content marketing, paid ads and social media work well in this hierarchy. This approach provides users with the best, most informative and fastest service.
I'm just starting my business and understand that mobile is a driving force in eCommerce. I want to spend start up money wisely, so if I initially invest in mobile may I eventually expand to a desktop and tablet version of my site?
Without question. In fact, the uptick in mobile shopping usage is inspiring many of us in the development space to think mobile first, particularly with images, and design for these smaller devices, then fine-tune for larger screens. We are also mindful of overcrowding and eliminate details which will distract from your brand presentation. This also applies to content. Because we want your customer to be able to read the same content from one device to another, we advise breaking up text over multiple pages.
My robust product line is dependent on an appealing display of photos to attract buyers. How can I reproduce this with limited mobile website real estate space?
With mobile the online shopping powerhouse it is today, developers are well-versed on how to reproduce a visually robust product roster in a way that will attract customers. At Done The Wright Way, we have the know-how and leverage the frameworks like Sencha's ExtJS5, for example, and design with a grid that is conducive to the mobile format. We can help you downsize the resolution of your images so they adapt to the size of the screen on which your customers view your site at any given time. The point is to optimize your images by preventing them from having a too-high resolution from the get-go.
Though mobile is growing, research shows that most buying, and therefore, most conversions occur on desktop sites. What's the point of adding mobile application development to my budget?
Respectfully, don't be misled into believing that the actual point of purchase represents a conversion. Remember, buyers are doing a lot of research and comparison shopping via mobile, and the actual point of purchase may be the final stop on a buying journey that starts with mobile.
My wife and I own a high-end clothing store in an upscale community. Is mobile just a trend or can we derive a benefit from adding a mobile application offering to our brick-and-mortar operation?
You absolutely can derive a benefit from adding a mobile feature. For example, progressive brick-and-mortar stores will endorse geo-location based mobile beacons as the way to deliver digital and mobile couponing to keep the in-store shopping experience contemporary, not antiquated. In fact, we are seeing more examples of large, traditional retailers like Target turning to mobile as a chance to ratchet up their eCommerce channel.
I understand that personalization is important to online shopping. How does mobile inform that trend?
Personalized offers will be served to customers via their mobile devices—and this extends to what and where they're shopping. This is a big plus if you have a brick-and-mortar retail offering. The same goes for online shopping. To combat the deadly abandoned shopping cart, consumers will be retargeted on social media channels for products they put in their cart. This puts them one step closer to clicking the "buy now" button.
What information should I have ready upon purchasing my design package?
We will need your company profile, contact info, products and services, and any other information you intend to present on your website.
How much input do I have?
We welcome your input! The more input we receive from you the better we're able to satisfy your needs and produce a site that will have the desired look and impact that you want. It’s your website, we want it to look the way you want it.
If I already have a site can you help me improve it?
Yes. We can usually like to design or freshen up an existing site for less money than from scratch, reason being sometimes cleaning up an existing website from a non professional company or single person can have a lot of behind the scene issues. Whether your company’s website “doesn’t look professional” takes too long to load or the navigation is baffling to visitors, we can help.
Does my business need to be computer-based in order to have a website? Do I need to know about computers?
NO, you do not need to own a computer or have computers involved in your business in order to have a website. Many companies do filing, invoicing and more without a computer.
What does 'website maintenance' or 'website updates' mean?
Website Maintenance or Website Updates refers to changes made to your website after the initial design, setup & launch. Keeping a website up-to-date is essential in having repeat visitors to your site.
Can I use my existing website address if I host with you?
Yes, we can easily retain your old domain name and move it over to the new site.
