How to Choose the Right Shopify
Web Design Agency for Your Business
Looking for a Shopify web design agency? These tips will help you
choose the right one for your business needs.
If you’re looking to build an online store using Shopify, you’ll want to find a web design agency that specialises in this platform. With so many options out there, it can be overwhelming to choose the right agency for your business needs. Our tips will help you navigate the process and find the perfect Shopify web design agency for your new online store.
Determine your business goals and needs.
If you start out with a great plan you can measure each agency against those. Who has best skill and experience to deliver your goals. Not every agency will understand your goals or be equipped to provide you the site you need.
Check for experience with Shopify and relevant industries.
Your business and website functions may require particular expertise. Integrating correct apps for example to present the products as you want. An agency with experience in your industry can be beneficial but design and development expertise may be more valued.
Consider communication and collaboration.
Don’t underestimate an agency who provides regular communication and many touch points. The biggest complain of small businesses are that their account manager was always changing or never replied to calls or emails.
Look for ongoing support and maintenance options.
When you go live the hard part of business starts and you will benefit from having a great web development support team in your corner.

Miranda Hanger – The It Kit
We could not recommend Johannah and her team more highly. From our initial conversation she understood our brief and really took the time to learn what our end goal was. Her attention to detail was amazing, she challenged us with ideas and guided us through the entire process. Johannah always responded quickly to any queries, communication was fabulous and nothing ever too much trouble. We really felt she wanted the absolute best result for our website as much as we did. We enjoyed the process of working with Johannah and we look forward to continuing to do so with Confetti Design in the future.
Azi – A’ Object
Starting my business from scratch, Confetti Design was the best thing could ever happen to me. When I contacted Johannah for the first time, I was full of unorganized ideas & kind of confused about where to start from. From the very first phone consultation with her, Johannah came forward with lots of amazingly creative & inspiring ideas. She took things to a new level with her fresh ideas. Johannah was super skilled at understanding my style, my brand & the business market & connecting me to the right people to help me with different aspects of my business. Confetti Design professionally planned, designed & delivered my business website. It was always like Johannah was part of my business not an outsider who was hired to mechanically do & finish a job for me. Always an email away! Working with them has been a pleasure!
Common Shopify Design & Development FAQ’s
How easy is it to set up your own Shopify Site?
Do I need to be a Shopify Expert to add in keywords?
The answer to this common question is two-fold, setting it up can be easy but you are most likely going to need a Shopify Expert website designer and developer to make it convert customers and turn it into a site you are proud of marketing.
From a user-friendly perspective, Shopify is much more straightforward than Woo Commerce. We have list below are the basic steps, that certainly make it sound simple! However at Confetti Design we get customers everyday say they tried and got the bones of the site set up but just couldn’t make it look professional enough to go live.
DIY Shopify Set Up – without the help of a Shopify designer or developer
Step 1: Go to https://www.shopify.com and click on the green “Start Free Trial” button in top right.
Step 2: Fill in the details such as your email address, your password for your Shopify account, and your store name. Note that it might take a while for you to find a store name that is available, so you will have to be very creative in deciding what your store name will be. Click on “Next” afterwards.
Step 3: Shopify will ask you two questions; ‘Are you already selling’ and ‘What is your current revenue’ Choose your answers from the dropdown. There is also a tick box asking if you are setting up the store for a client, leave it unchecked if you are creating a store for your own business. Click on Next.
Step 4: There will be a question on whether you’d like to make a brick-and-mortar store or an online shop. Select the Online Shop option and then click next.
Step 5: The next page will ask to fill in personal information such as first and last name, address (configures currencies and tax rate), and phone number. You will then need to click the “Enter my store” button.
Step 6: The Shopify step by step process afterwards are pretty straightforward. You will be asked to add a product first. You will need to fill in details like title, description, price, and vendor. You can add a few products first to test and then add more later when you’ve completed the set up.
Step 7: Select a theme for your website. There are free themes that you can choose from which look amazing and are responsive as well.
Step 8: In your dashboard, set up your domain which you can also buy from Shopify, or you can use the free one they provided.
Step 9: Activate your payment by clicking on the payments tab on your dashboard. You will also need to choose a plan and put your method of payment on file.
Step 10: Once done setting up the payment, click on the Launch Website button to make your website live.
How easy is it to add in SEO to my Shopify site?
Assuming you know what keywords you are going to be adding into your Shopify site, we will be covering what is automatic within the Shopify platform, what is a manual job and where you go to add them.
Shopify has some built in SEO Features
Shopify has a built in SEO feature that helps optimize your content, such as adding canonical tags to pages so duplicate posts do not show up on search engines. This is automatically done for you without having to edit any of these settings yourself or use a Shopify expert developer to do it for you!
Page titles are automatic
Shopify page titles are the default H1 tag for pages created through Shopify—avoid manually adding an H1 tag anywhere else on the page.
In order to make sure your page titles are not cut off in search engine results, keep them under 60 characters. Google consistently displays the first 50-60 characters of most webpages and always include keywords near where you want people see it when they’re browsing (e.g., at beginning). Lastly remember to use more general language instead of writing an essay or complete sentence!
Write compelling page titles and descriptions that are simple, think Grade 8-10 year old.
The copy you write for page titles and meta descriptions should clearly describe the content on each individual webpage, include important keywords in an interesting way that will make users want to click through. Make sure your writing is not only informative but also engaging so people read all about it!
Optimise your URLS
Include a keyword in your page URL. For a Shopify store, the title of a page is like the URL. I recommend that you put your target in there, but keep things short and sweet by not having too many words so people can remember it.
