How to Work with Designers and Programmers

Oftentimes, new eCommerce owners will spend thousands and thousands of dollars on a website design when they are just starting out. They want everything personalized and huge from the beginning, when they don’t yet understand what their customers need. It is a known fact that good website designers and developers, let alone some of the best, are not cheap, and not every designer’s style will be a good match for each eCommerce business’s requirements.

Carson McComas is a top-ranked Shopify expert and the founder and designer at ShopifyCustom.com. He has been developing, launching and marketing eCommerce sites since 1998 and currently works with a small number of clients a year to ensure personal attention for each of his clients. This personal care is just one of the things you should expect from any designer you hire. Listen in as Carson shares his knowledge and expertise to help you find the right designer on your first try, before spending thousands. You do not want to miss this episode!
