Improve Your Store Design and Boost Sales!
Adapt to new shoppers... Be responsive! and make your site the same way. You try your best to adapt to your clientele needs; it's normal in any business, I do it too. Responsive sites do the same, the sites will adapt to the device each visitor is using. The responsive design will dynamically resize the content presented on any given page, and is an effective way of designing and building an ecommerce that is compatible in web browsers across various devices.
Many of today's users want to be able to surf the web on a variety of different devices, and responsive design makes this possible. Businesses who have responsive web design done for their online stores can be sure that their visitors will have a better shopping experience and that their sites will be able to rank better in search engines.
If you don't adapt to your customers, they will move on to your competitors and leave you behind; and you don't want to miss out tons of potential new customers and to lose the ones you already have.
Responsive Designing = Crucial Component for Better Customer Experience
- Promotes a consistent look among different devices;
- Boosts customer loyalty;
- Reduced brand confusion;
- Improves shopping experience;
- Better sales conversions

If you run into problems or need a question answered... You will also receive up to 2 hours ($70 value) of support via email or phone during the first 30 days after I start working on your website design.
Please understand that your store will not end looking just like a generic "template" for Zen Cart - this will be a shop made exclusively for your brand and industry. If you just need a template and want to consume the time installing the shopping cart, installing the template, making changes to the code, learning the template system, and configuring up the store yourself, please do a search for Zen Cart templates on your preferred search engine.
I can register your domain for you at an extra cost, and I would be happy to host your store on my dedicated server. I offer my customers reasonable hosting fees, in case you prefer to have that service with us. My server is never overloaded, security and upgrade is a constant procedure, backups are regularly done, and downtime is minimum.
