The Must Have Features of Good e-commerce Design
Each page of your site needs a specific set of measurable goals. Our team use design features and narratives that help to encourage the right buyer behaviour for each page. Whether that’s simple click-throughs, requesting information, making a purchase or sharing content via social media.
Your product pages are the most essential aspect of your e-commerce site and need to be flawless. Priority Pixels can help you realise this vision with clean, clear and well-designed content. Showcasing your products in the best way and giving the buyer all the information they need before they click Buy.
Removing ‘barriers to purchase’ is something we know all businesses look for. This is why we take special care to optimise your checkout process and smooth the sales path to make your customer’s life easier.
Our design team use a number of tools to improve the search functionality of your site to help your clients find the right product quickly. These features also allow you to better understand the behaviour of customers on your site and respond to their needs.
With a comprehensive and information led structure, our build team can create an environment that enhances the chance of follow-up sales by showing users targeted recommendations based on their previous purchases and behaviours.
Making sure your site can be found easily and quickly is all about employing a great SEO strategy that keeps evolving and improving. We build our sites to be SEO focussed and constantly evaluate your results to make sure you achieve the best search results possible.
Many of your customers will view your site and make a purchase using a Smartphone or Tablet. This means your entire web presence and especially your customer’s sales journey needs to be fully optimised. We create responsive websites as standard; fully scalable to work seamlessly on all digital devices.
It’s extremely common for visitors to e-commerce wesites to add items to their shopping cart….only to leave the website without making a purchase. Its predicted that almost every year £18 billion worth of sales are lost every year in Britain alone.
Although this can’t always be avoided there are measures we take to reduce abandoned carts. There are also tactics we can put in place to encourage those who do abandon their cart to come back and complete their transaction.
One of the approaches we employ is to help companies recoup lost sales from abandoned carts by using one or more of the following techniques.
With cart abandonment emails you have the ability to send automated emails to those who have added items in their shopping cart but not completed a purchase. However, in order to do this you will need to know the customers email address. An email can be required by asking them to enter an email address before the checkout process. Or they may be a returning customer meaning you will already have their data. From here you can offer a discount, reminding them about the items they’d added to their shopping cart and left behind.
If someone has shown an interest in a specific product on your website, we have the ability to remind them of this at a later time through re-marketing advertising. We achieve this by installing a simple tracking pixel which logs what customers view on your website. These ads can be displayed anywhere across the Google network and YouTube. Re-marketing, sometimes referred to as retargeting offers a much higher Click Through Rate (CTR) than PPC or other types of Paid Search Advertising. Resulting in an increase in conversion rates.
Having a complex buying system in place presents a huge risk of losing customers…and potential profits. The customer journey needs to be kept simple and have all the necessary details right from initial intense right through to purchase. However, time and time again businesses get this wrong with overly complex systems, insufficient payment gateway integration and missing information.
At Priority Pixels we think like a customer when putting together your e-commerce website. With an end goal of enriching the customers buyers journey and increasing your profits.
Have you ever gone to exit a website and a message or pop up displays, encouraging you to stay? That’s exactly what Exit Intent Technology (EIT) is in place to do. Keep people on your website. EIT is a simple piece of technology but at the same time extremely intelligent. It can detect when a user is about to exit your site and abandon their cart. But with well timed and clever prompts, EIT can encourage the user to complete their transaction.
Before launching EIT on your site we would employ an initial A/B test to assess which styles and types of content your customers best respond to.
Understanding your customer base is a vital part of any marketing plan. This includes knowing which digital spaces they occupy and how they communicate with others and with you.
At Priority Pixels we have industry leading market researchers and analysts who will look at your customers behaviours online to create a marketing plan tailored to your industry, products, clients and long-term goals.

Every business wants to drive as much traffic to their website as possible. However, this traffic doesn’t account for much if they are not securing sales. That’s why our E-commerce Web Development Plymouth service focuses on driving relevant and targeted traffic to your website.
