Contact us today to find out how we can help your CT business grow with a complete upgrade to the way you manage your e-Commerce website. Too many business owners get bogged down in repetitive tasks that could easily be performed automatically by a piece of software or a program. We build this functionally right into your website, so you can manage your online business in one simple place.
Smooth and ultra-fast checkout
Our CT e-Commerce development team takes pride in building lightning-fast and secure checkout experiences, so that your customers convert as often as possible. The checkout experience on your site is crucial to completing the online sale. One of the top 4 reasons for cart abandonment is a slow or disjointed checkout experience; smooth, fast checkout on your e-Commerce site builds confidence in your buyer, making them more likely to complete the purchase.
Additionally, when a site performs slowly or the checkout is not smooth, payment security concerns arise and customers find it difficult to establish enough trust to enter their credit card information.
Responsive, mobile-friendly E-Commerce design
Today’s online shopper is just as likely to use a phone to access your website as they are to use a computer. Mobile traffic now accounts for over half of all search traffic in the US, which means that e-Commerce sites NEED to be mobile-friendly and responsive (adjusts in appearance based on the user’s device).
Google is giving prime placement in search results for websites that are optimized for mobile-first indexing, and sites that are at the top of search results get more traffic and make more money. To keep users on your e-Commerce website longer, and to ensure the best experience for every visitor, ensure that your website is mobile-friendly. The CT e-Commerce team at Aspire Digital builds sites that are fully responsive, and ready for mobile traffic right from launch.
Exceptional customer experience
From the moment a customer lands on your website, we’ll make sure that every step of the customer journey is hand-tailored for maximum conversions and user experience. Anticipating user behavior, providing easy avenues of access to products, and addressing and responding to drop offs and cart abandonments are just a few of the ways we ensure the best possible customer experience.
Your e-Commerce website represents your brand, and in some cases your physical storefront as well (if you operate from one). In addition to the expert e-Commerce development team at Aspire, we also have in-house graphic designers and branding specialists who can create imagery, logos, brand kits, flyers, email banners and gifs, and more for your online business.
Additionally, we offer reputation management services, which includes features such as review management and collection, social media management and post scheduling (multi-platform), and local listing services.
Design that drives conversion
Design demonstrates quality. This is particularly relevant when it comes to e-Commerce and online shopping. Your e-Commerce website’s design is the first thing a prospective customer is going to see. Not the products, not the prices, not your sale items. They’re going to first see, and judge, the design of your site. It’s a fact – you have less than 0.5 seconds to make a first impression. Make it count! Beyond that, the way design interplays with product layout and overall site aesthetic plays a large role in your conversion rate.
Is your e-Commerce site putting your customer in a transactional, or ‘buying’ mood? Do the visuals on your site guide the eye of the browser to the intended button, or area of the page? Our team at Aspire includes a Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) specialist, because every element of design serves a purpose on e-Commerce websites.
Our E-Commerce Development Team in Connecticut
Our CT e-Commerce development team has decades of combined experience in platforms like Shopify, WooCommerce, Magento, and most other major e-Commerce software. Each of these major platforms have differences in programming language, technology, and features – and our development team in CT knows how to navigate each of these for all of the platforms we work with.
Our team utilizes a custom design and development process – nothing is ‘out-of-the-box’ at Aspire. Before we get started, our team meets with you, we get to know you and your business goals, and we create a timeline and strategy to best suit your needs, goals, and budget. As a full-service professional marketing agency, we’re in the business of helping you make more money.
Not only will we design and develop your site (we’ll take care of the heavy lifting), but we also have an array of supporting team members and specialists to complete the various tasks that make up a successful e-Commerce website. Our graphic designers will ensure your logo, images, and marketing materials are updated and align with your site’s design and your brand message. Our marketing and CRO team will inform on development and site design, to make sure that your site will convert from day 1. Our SEOs check content, meta, and product information for missed opportunities and areas to capitalize on. The list goes on.

Do you offer custom eCommerce website design?
Yes. At Aspire Digital Solutions in CT we build 100% custom e-Commerce websites. Our design and development team does not use pre-made designs or templates. Instead, we create custom designs with full e-Commerce functionality that are both unique and user friendly. We’ll help you bring your vision to life and represent your brand with a custom-built e-Commerce site for your online business.
How do e-Commerce websites work?
E-Commerce websites, in many ways, work similarly to a physical storefront but with obvious differences. Instead of your customer walking through the door, seeing signs for items to purchase, and finally walking to the cashier to complete the transaction – your e-Commerce storefront starts with a landing page, which shows customers an overview of what you sell, and provides ways to navigate to the products they are looking for. From there they easily fill their ‘shopping cart’ with items, and then make their way to checkout to complete the purchase. Virtual payment like credit cards, PayPal, and other digital methods will be available for the customer to use, as well as shipping methods to choose from for product delivery. As the business owner, you will have access to all orders and customer information, and your e-Commerce website will be able to create shipping labels for you to affix to packages for shipping. From the beginning to the end of the customer journey, your e-Commerce site is your entire store, from the front door to the shipping labels on the packages you send out.
Will my e-Commerce website be responsive?
Yes, your e-Commerce site will be 100% responsive. No matter what type of device your visitors are on – from the widest PC monitors to the smallest mobile phones – your site will resize automatically for best appearance on any device. With more than half of internet traffic being logged on mobile devices in 2021, your e-Commerce site needs to be fully responsive to convert visitors on the wide variety of devices they are using to shop online.
What is the best e-Commerce platform for small business?
That depends entirely on your needs. For e-Commerce businesses that need fully custom shop functions, subscriptions, unusual or unique integrations or migrations, oftentimes the best platforms are WordPress-based systems like WooCommerce, or custom standalone platforms like Magento. For stores that sell in a more traditional retail manner, Shopify is one of the industry-leading e-Commerce solutions, providing security and speed along with an interface that customers are used to seeing. At Aspire in CT our e-Commerce development team will help you pick the right platform for your business. Give us a call today to discuss your project.
Can you integrate my CRM/ERP/POS system with my e-Commerce site?
In most cases, yes we can. All but a few of the most antiquated point of sale systems can be integrated with the major e-Commerce platforms used in today’s market. Once set up, the link between your online store and physical POS/CRM/ERP system will allow you to track purchases, inventory, and more. This makes accounting much easier, and brings all of your customer information into one place. In many cases we can also help you bring your customer lists to the digital space, so you can market online with ease.
Do you do e-Commerce search engine optimization (SEO)?
We certainly do. Every e-Commerce website we build is already ‘SEO-friendly,’ meaning that we build or redesign your site with SEO best practices in mind. Once your site is launched, however, we recommend aggressive e-commerce SEO to get your online business more traffic. Some sites will start to rank on their own after launch, but none will achieve top placement and rankings without some dedicated search engine optimization work. Competition is high, especially in the world of online business. To outrank and outperform competitors in the areas where the majority of customers are searching, the most successful companies invest in SEO.
