BigCommerce Design, Development, and SEO

If you’re serious about your BigCommerce store and its online success,


Since 2012, 1Digital® has been a top-rated BigCommerce Enterprise agency and elite partner. 1Digital® helps eCommerce merchants work on multiple facets of their online presence, consisting of but not limited to BigCommerce custom design, BigCommerce custom development, platform migration services, along with BigCommerce SEO and digital marketing services. Plus, we have been known as the “go-to agency” for on-going BigCommerce support and enterprise-level advanced customization. Here at 1Digital®, we custom tailor our work towards what our clients are in need of, meaning every project is uniquely built around each and every client specifically. At the beginning of the process, our expert BigCommerce team acts as consultants in many ways in order to not only comprehend what is needed but to also bring a level of expertise to the table in order to recommend not just fixes but also talk about custom solutions that may bring a new level of performance to a BigCommerce site.

What type of BigCommerce projects does 1Digital® typically work on? From a very high-level, the easy answer to the question is BigCommerce custom design projects, BigCommerce custom development projects, and BigCommerce marketing projects, however for obvious reasons each of those categories can qualify as a large umbrella which encompasses many different classes within them. To start, BigCommerce custom design projects include having 1Digital®’s trained BigCommerce designers work with the client in order to frame a contemporary and custom aesthetic that acts as the face of brand and BigCommerce store. When custom designing, in many instances the design team is building deliverables like homepages, category pages, product pages, about us pages, but certainly the number of pages being built from scratch varies. Our BigCommerce designers also design with BigCommerce functionality in mind, ensuring any/all mock-ups are perfectly aligned with the BigCommerce platform which ensures a smooth and efficient development process. While drafting a BigCommerce site’s front-end aesthetic encompasses a considerable amount of what “BigCommerce custom design” can include, our team also designs a myriad of other elements for BigCommerce clients which can include branding packages, custom logos, bespoke marketing emails, welcome and/or newsletter pop-ups, unique menu layouts, custom tool user interfaces, and much more.

BigCommerce development is most likely the largest high-level category when talking about 1Digital® projects. While BigCommerce development certainly comprises of taking custom designs and building them into the BigCommerce platform in order to allow for the unique aesthetic to display and function properly, the development grouping also contains a great deal more. One of those sub-categories is eCommerce platform migrations and eCommerce data migrations. When migrating to the BigCommerce platform there is a considerable amount to account for, however, 1Digital®’s experience and processes ensure an effective and professional transition.

1Digital® Agency has been “the” BigCommerce migration team for almost 8 years and is continually recommended by the BigCommerce team for all types of migration projects. Whether a merchant is migrating from an open-source platform like Magento, WooCommerce or if a client needs BigCommerce Enterprise level solutions to be built during the migration to ensure no functionality is lost during the transition or if simply making sure designs are redeveloped and data is migrated properly, 1Digital® can accommodate. While many companies still perform data migrations using thrid-party “cart-to-cart” tools which can be very harmful when talking about eCommerce data migrations since data almost always lands on the new platform in an unorganized and unstructured manner, 1Digital® takes a unique approach in order to protect the integrity of a client’s data. We custom build temporary servers in order to field map data to the new platform and take advantage of BigCommerce’s API in order to drive data into BigCommerce in the most effective manner possible.

What else besides BigCommerce platform migrations does custom development include? Stencil migrations are another service 1Digital® performs regularly on behalf of the BigCommerce team. Since the BigCommerce Blueprint framework is no longer being supported, 1Digital® has overseen countless BigCommerce Stencil migrations in order to ensure a merchant is transferred to the most up to date version of the platform while also not losing critical elements of their site along the way.

And lastly, this custom development umbrella consists of creating and integrating custom tools, custom solutions, and custom BigCommerce functionality in order to bring a new level or robust functionality to a BigCommerce store that previously did not exist. Creating new tools, functionality and operations varies in regards to size and could include extremely large custom systems with many moving pieces in order to ensure BigCommerce API integrations are properly constructed, it may include creating tools that allow for a user to customize a product prior to checkout or a custom checkout process as well. Some BigCommerce custom functionality may consist of small items that give users additional abilities when navigating a site or to allow customers to more easily locate the products which they are looking for. In other instances, custom development includes building conversion rate optimization tools into a BigCommerce site and allowing for a merchant to take full advantage of all the traffic they receive.
