Shopify web design + set-up

e-commerce web design from a team who understand product presentation, online + direct marketing and the customer journey from discovering your brand to being an advocate of your business

  • why Shopify?

    I have designed and built websites for clients on all of the usual platforms over the years but I firmly believe Shopify is the best for small-to-medium size businesses wanting to do any level of e-commerce - other platforms might offer equally good design but they seriously lack when it comes to data, customisations and strategic systems.

    Its also key to small business owners to be able to adapt, update and optimise continually - for that you need to have full access, control and understanding of your website.

    We don't just 'design websites'; we develop online stores and sales systems with your brand, product and customer in mind, and show you how to run with them or continue to work with you to ensure you get the most from your investment

Hand-in-hand with becoming a freelance stylist in 2018, I set up my own Shopify website for selling photography backdrops under the brand, Black Velvet Styling.

After working in other peoples businesses in direct marketing and content creation for over 15 years, I decided it was time to take the plunge and sell my own products (plus my house was getting a little crowded with props, I had to legitimise my obsession!).

Its been the most rewarding work (both financially and creatively) I've ever done, so I really love helping other people branch out online whatever their passion and product may be.

E-commerce web design is as much about online marketing and customer service apps as it is layouts and branding; I attribute much of my success to having full autonomy of a commercially-focused, content-driven Shopify website, and I'm very proud it's in the top 1% of Shopify stores globally.

We bring the same proven, holistic approach to your websites too.

Another reason we love Shopify is because they charge a modest monthly fee (from just $29) for hosting/using the platform and earn money by processing card payments via their own Shop pay system.
This means that small and new businesses have a flat monthly fee and pay a competitive commission on sales in line with their turnover (taken before Shopify pays in to your bank account - so you don't feel it as a bill at the end of each month).
And more importantly, it means that Shopify are incentivised to help you succeed and grow your sales because the better you do the more they earn. And they really do try to help you - their support team is fantastic, as is the abundance of advice and training available from Shopify directly and via their many advocates.
