What we will accomplish:

✓ The smallest time investment from you

GREAT FIT IF YOU:

  • Are comfy with template-based design for a limited revision process to go to market quickly with your products

  • Have a brand that needs a refreshed look online as well coupled with some key conversion improvements

FAQs

For Shopify, what do I need to work with you?

For websites, it’s critical that you have a professionally designed brand, and a suite of brand photography (lifestyle and product shots) otherwise we will hit a roadblock pretty early on in the design process.

Don't worry we can help you take care of your branding and photography needs as well. Our holistic approach to web design has been crafted to walk you through each phase making it easy for you, making it a seamless transition once our project begins.

WHY DO I NEED STRATEGY? I JUST NEED A GOOD WEBSITE.

As much as we’d love to dive right into the design portion of building a website, we believe that great design is rooted in strategy, particularly for eCommerce businesses. You may have a keen sense of the problems and possible solutions, just as any good doctor would ask questions before you walk in and demand surgery. 

For Shopify services, how soon can we begin?

We would love to be able to start ASAP, however our availability varies throughout the year due to the scope of your specific project. We recommend reaching out to us at least 3-4 months in advance of your ideal launch date as we accept a limited number of clients per month. Fill out our client application form so we can assess if we’re a good fit for your brand!

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO WORK WITH YOU?

Every project is different, so we always like to hop on a clarity call to talk about your specific needs first. Then we’ll put together a custom proposal and quote just for you. On average, most clients who want a custom Shopify storefront and/or brand spend anywhere between four to mid-five figures with us. Clients who need something wth a smaller investment or with a quicker turnaround love our Shopify Accelerator or VIP top-up days. Contact us to get pricing tailored to you and your goals.

Design is an investment and we always want to make that investment worthwhile for our clients, so let's chat and we can offer with some honest advice. Our goal is to make growing your business effortless if it makes sense for your stage of growth.

By giving you the tools to utilize your website well and communicate with your customers, you’ll have more confidence to launch that new product, expand your services or open up that brick and mortar. We want nothing more than to see you succeed.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

Yes! This is a business investment, so we try to make payments as simple as possible. While your deposit is required at the time of booking to save your date(s), you will have an equal payment plans over the duration of your project - no crazy math needed. We have also enabled ShopPay - the platform millons of merchants know and love - for you to take an extended payment plan for your service. We would be happy to detail what this looks like for you in your personal investment guide after our Clarity Call.

I DESIGNED MY WEBSITE MYSELF AND JUST NEED TWEAKS, CAN YOU HELP ME?

First of all, absolute kudos to you for taking on such a task to get your market fit and start making profit! The short answer, it depends. We work with clients who are in the 1+ year stage of their business. If you are still in the DIY phase of your brand, we might not be the best fit to work together. If you want to inquire on the baby steps needed to get to our signature website design packages, book a call with us and we can break it down into manageable chunks that push the needle in the right direction for you.

HOW DO REVISIONS WORK? DO I HAVE INPUT ON THE DESIGN?

We work in strict revision cycles which you will see as we move through your project in our per-delivery presentation of how many rounds of revisions are left in the process plus a very guided and direct way to understand the goals of feedback in each phase. We use the one concept method approach which rarely has significant revisions based on our in-depth strategy and alignment before design. We believe your design is tailored to your goals, and we design for the “wow” factor. Our one-concept method funnels us into the strongest design based on our developed style, your needs, and a professionally informed opinion.

CAN WE CUT COSTS BY USING A TEMPLATE?

Here’s the deal: all Shopify storefronts are based off a template in some shape or form unless you do truly custom site – and if you’re not making over 6 figures per month or losing 5 figures a month because of UX issues, you don’t need a FULLY custom template. Templates are pre-built architecture but not the end result. Kind of like those crazy people on pinterest with wild IKEA hacks - we take the frame and create something totally new.

Shopify templates also come in varying degrees of flexibility, speed, well engineered sections, and documentation for upkeep. we only use templates we would recommend, trust and have used in the past and are often our springboard for the strategic design we create. If you wanted to just use a template you still won’t be much closer to that design, aesthetic and usable quality you’re after. All templates need some level of customization to achieve what you want without extra apps slowing you down. So in your investment package is a built-in custom development budget to make your store front really special and cater to your customers needs well. We’ll take care of the details for you, no sweat!

WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING BREAKS AFTER LAUNCH?

Anything we build for you has a 15 to 30-day post launch guarantee on, if it breaks we will fix it! However, there are 2 caveats. Shopify being a SaaS provider is constantly iterating and improving their software for merchants on an ongoing basis. Any updates to the Shopify template language, API and more are not covered if changes were not documented or released at kickoff. Third party app integrations can’t be guaranteed as we have no control over their code base. Understand that Shopify does software version changes over time, so changes to the software requirements is not covered.

DO YOU PROVIDE TRAINING ON MY WEBSITE?

At the conclusion of your project, we'll create personalized website training videos for your use and reference as well as a dedicatde 2 hour live training session for you to get your hands dirty and ask questions along the way. Your recordings are stored for your teams reference later.

DO YOU OFFER SERVICES AT A LOWER COST?

Yes! We offer CRO (conversion rate optimization) services under $1k USD, Strategy and consulting workshops, Design and development accelerators (an intensive service for smaller projects in a quick turnaround), and 1 or 2 day sprint services for merchants. We have offerings from $800-$60,000 USD. Download our service guide to learn more.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FULLY CUSTOM DESIGN AND THE ACCELERATOR?

Accelerator Shopify websites do not allow for fully custom functionality - like a "whatever you want" - we mostly have to work with what comes in the box, with a few exceptions. During the theme selection process, we will walk you through the capabilities and limitations of each Shopify theme. Additional features and functionality can always be requested but will require a re-scope of the project and its pricing.

CAN'T WE USE A TEMPLATE TO SAVE ON COSTS?

Shopify templates also come in varying degrees of flexibility, speed, well-engineered sections, and documentation for upkeep.

I only use templates I would recommend, trust and have used in the past. If you wanted to just use a template you still won’t be much closer to that design, aesthetic and usable quality you’re after.

All templates need some level of customization to achieve what you want without extra apps slowing you down. Semi-custom helps bridge the gap between faster and cheaper but still on-brand and beautiful, where with custom we are achieving speed, functionality, and bleeding-edge performance goals that templates tend to box us out of.

What platforms do you develop websites on?

We have extensive design and development experience in Shopify - we don't claim to be experts in anything else.

Do you work with platforms other than Shopify?

No, this service is ONLY for Shopify entrepreneurs.

WHAT DO I NEED TO PROVIDE?

For web design: To start the web designs, we’ll need high-resolution professional brand or product photography selected to begin. We can, if you choose, provide copywriting services for all of our website clients. Here's some truth for you: professional brand and product photography is an absolute game-changer for your brand and website.

It's not just a trend, it's become the industry standard. Your audience can instantly sense when you've skimped on your visuals, so if you're ready to take your brand to the next level, investing in top-notch photography is a no-brainer. Ask us how we can help you with your brand photography in preparation for your website.
