I am a leading freelancer for development because I offer everything you need to succeed online.
I Build Sites Are Powerful Sites
I build powerful eCommerce sites that are easy to use and update and are expandable with excellent support. The stores I help you design and develop will do everything you need without being tied into proprietary or hard-to-move off-platform. I work with WooCommerce and Shopify, the two worlds leading eCommerce platforms.
WooCommerce is an open-source eCommerce plugin for WordPress with a large ecosystem of developers and users. WooCommerce can handle simple to advanced sites making it the most widely used platform in the world. WooCommerce can handle complex features, and since it is self-hosted we have a large amount of control over the site. WooCommerce allows some amazing growth as your business grows that’s why I used it for most of my clients.
Shopify is a cloud-based SaaS (software as a service) shopping cart solution. Shopify charges a reasonable monthly fee, and it offers support. It is easy to use, which is one of the biggest reasons clients love it. Shopify makes it simple to add products, create coupons, and process orders.
WooCommerce is the world’s most popular eCommerce system. It is an eCommerce plugin or add-on for the WordPress Content Management System (CMS).
WooCommerce comes with most of the main features any webshop would require, like the ability to add products, manage customers, process orders, and billing. It enables users to sell anything physical products or digital downloads. WooCommerce, when set up by an experienced developer works fast and reliably. The wide range of official extensions and available extensions for WooCommerce offer expansion to features.
WooCommerce gives you control to own your website and managed all your products or services as you see fit.
It can work for some simple online stores since it is flexible and has features such as inventory and tax management, secure payments, and shipping integration. Gared towards solutions for slightly more complex small and large businesses, WooComemrce works great for services or bookings and is best if you want integration with WordPress.
WooCommerce is developed by a leading team of eCommerce professionals and tested by millions of website owners and users. The WooCommerce plugin offers a simple yet effective solution for eCommerce.
Shopify is a heavily-favored SaaS (software as a service) eCommerce platform. It is the world’s second popular eCommerce system. Shopify serves as a complete platform for your eCommerce website and is easy to use.
Shopify is a hosted solution cloud-based setup and hosted solution where you no need to worry about servers or databases and often makes getting up and running take less time. You can access your store from anywhere.
The built-in marketing tools are also impressive. Shopify is great for SEO and gives tools for titles, meta titles, URLs, meta descriptions, and redirects – to name a few. There are also ways to boost product promotions through Social Media platforms like Facebook.
The security and support are amazing. Since Shopify is a service these are all part of your subscription. Security is integrated and includes payment providers. Besides offering integrations with other 3rd party payment gateways, Shopify offers its own as well.
Shopify also offers a 14-Day free trial. To give it a test drive publishing your domain live is restricted, but you can use a testing domain.
For all sites I create or work on to improve, I look to deliver value.
Discovery and Research
Every engagement gets you a detailed discovery. I engage in discovery so – I understand you, your business, your goals, and what the eCommerce site needs to achieve. From there, I present you with a variety of options and recommendations that align with your business goals and technology needs.
eCommerce Website Design
I work to research, mock-up, and purchase or design from scratch a responsive theme. I seek to create a modern look that looks stunning on every device. With the increase of mobile devices, your site will look great and function flawlessly on all modern desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Mobile shopping had become huge over the last few years. I also seek to create great-looking logos, branding, illustrations, and media to increase engagement and inspire conversions.
Creating a professional online web store requires eCommerce development services to get the highest-quality final result. The development makes things work. From small online stores to large multi-vendor websites, all my eCommerce projects are developed with great attention to detail to ensure my customer’s ultimate satisfaction. I handle all items such as setting up domains, hosting, email, product loading, payment processor setup, shipping configuration – or more complex custom development.
eCommerce SEO Strategy
Since I am a Search Engine Optimization Specialist, all platforms I recommend are SEO-friendly, and the sites I develop help your products or services get found when people are searching. On-page, Off-Page, Technical SEO, and PageSpeed Optimization services are available with every project to help you rank for key phrases and have a technically proficient site. I also can assist with eCommerce product optimization.
Training, Management, and Your Updates
I make training available for all website projects. It is key to be trained and have your eCommerce system be easy-to-use.
It is a breeze most of the time to add or adjust products, pricing, or coupons. I am here to make sure your site grows with your business over time. I offer support.
Transferring your website from one platform to another, I’m here to make sure it goes smoothly. Pages, products, and even orders – can be migrated to your new highly optimized platform.
Powerful and Functional
As a developer and Search Engine Optimization Strategist, I tout my sites can rank due to proper development. Picking a well-developed site or a good-looking site isn’t a choice. A website needs to be both. The right website is powerful, functional, SEO optimized and converts visitors into customers.
Excellent eCommerce development services take time to develop as a skill. I have been at it for more than a decade. What I have learned can be used, and I have applied it to over one-hundred other businesses and projects.

Experience matters and that is what I offer with my services. I started as a student a long time ago. I’ve been doing this almost as Google has been around (1998 vs. 2001). I have seen everything start from simple to and evolve to complex, but oh so fulfilling. I have worked through the evolution of modern eCommerce.
