A good Shopify web developer can help you build a better website. They can help you build a stronger, more secure, more effective and more search engine friendly website. You have control over how much your developer does. Will the developer fix up a few widgets and rearrange your design to make it more consumer friendly, or will the developer reorganize the code, layout, settings and features to make your website more search engine friendly? Here are just a few reasons why you should hire a web developer experienced in Shopify.
Tighten Up Security on Your Website
There are plenty of ways a hacker or online virus can find its way into your Shopify website. This is the flaw with popular website builders, they have people working night and day to find exploits. A developer can tighten security to make it far more difficult for online criminals to gain access to your website.
Reduce Loading Times
Faster loading times means better SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Plus, the people visiting your website don’t want to be waiting overly long times to get to your content. Faster loading can be achieved in several ways, such as by improving the quality of the coding or by trimming off elements that are not being used.
Alter The Design To Make it Look More Professional
The Shopify system is set up to help you create a good looking website, but it is often obvious when a non-professional has created the website. Get a fresh pair of eyes on your design and perhaps have a developer improve it a little to make it look more professional. Even things like how your pages are set out can be improved with just a few minor tweaks. Plus, a professional can take a look at your website on all screen sizes to see if any are rendering in a less-than-perfect way.
Extend Your website’s Core Functionality
There are ways to improve your website and grow its functionality as your business grows. Here is a short list of the ways you could change your website’s features to help you run your business. These are features that the customer cannot see, but that you perhaps may use. These are features that can be added or changed by a developer.
- Inventory management
- Store Design
- Customer Support
- Sales and Conversion
Add Social Media Integration a Little Better
You can experience a lot of different problems when you try to add social media through things like plugins and extensions. A developer can hard code these things into your website so that they load at the same time as other websites, and so that your social media elements appear within apps rather than failing to render.
