What Does it Mean to be a Shopify Expert?

In 2013 we were recognised as a ‘Shopify Expert’ by Shopify themselves. This means that Shopify recommends us directly to their subscribers as a web design agency with a proven reputation for excellence using the Shopify platform. We are one of a select, relative few agencies around the world with Shopify Expert accreditation and serve Shopify’s 160,000+ customers with needs ranging from fully bespoke store design and development to search marketing services and occasional fixes. Each month we provide marketing and ongoing optimisation services to numerous long-term clients.

You can visit our UK Shopify Expert profile to view a selection of our most recent work and read independent feedback and reviews from our clients. One of the goals of the Shopify Expert scheme is to help businesses find Shopify designers, developers, marketers etc that they can trust with their business-critical needs. It’s therefore very important to Shopify – and to us – that we are as transparent as possible in our business, abilities and areas of expertise.

Our Shopify Expert accreditation includes the following services:

1. Shopify Store Setup

We’ll help you get started with setting up your Shopify store. This typically features a range of tasks including establishing the right default settings for your store and installing and optimising the right Shopify apps.

We also help many of our clients to transfer their existing eCommerce store to Shopify. If you’re looking for a Shopify Expert to help you setup your Shopify store then the good news is that this is a quick, easy and effective way to get started with Shopify.

2. Shopify Web Design

Shopify has a great range of themes which you can use for your website, many of which are free. However, many of our clients came to us because they needed a bespoke Shopify web design which goes above and beyond the off-the-shelf themes.

Our clients are typically looking for a Shopify Expert web designer because they have an existing branding package which they want to keep or they’re looking for a bespoke Shopify store which will outperform a standard theme or template.

3. Shopify Web Development

Whilst Shopify is very easy to get the hang of, it’s also a very powerful platform. We do a lot of development work to help our clients get the most out of Shopify. This includes development work on the site itself and the development of bespoke Shopify apps where there isn’t an obvious solution to the challenges that you’re facing.

Whether you’re looking for a site to be developed from scratch – or simply need a Shopify Expert web developer to improve your existing site – we’d love to explore the possibility of working with you.

4. Shopify Marketing

One of the biggest challenges for Shopify store owners is marketing their Shopify store. You can have a beautiful website with superb functionality, but if you’re not connecting with customers then it’s going to be very difficult to remain profitable.

We offer a range of Shopify marketing services to help you generate traffic, increase conversions and maximise your sales.

Our monthly Shopify SEO packages include a range of creative solutions to help you market your business more effectively. This typically includes original content creation, link-building, conversion rate optimisation, ongoing on-site optimisation and monthly SEO reporting to generate the data which we need to continue improving our service. However, we understand that every client is different and so we’re always happy to put together a bespoke package which is appropriate for your business and budget.
