Helping you make your decision.

What’s your typical client profile?

Our clients are typically ambitious brands looking to stand out from the crowd without compromising on either form or function. Determined to grow faster on Shopify Plus, their annual revenue tends to be over £1 million; if less, they’re aiming to soon reach that figure!

In terms of verticals, our clients range from fashion and beauty, homewares and gifts, to sports, food and drink. Read more about our clients here.

How much should I expect to pay for the design and build of my Shopify Plus website?

Unsurprisingly, the overall costs will largely depend on the complexity of the design and build. After having a quick, obligation-free chat about your project requirements, we can give you a ballpark starting price. From there, we can put together a detailed proposal with specific estimated costs for the whole project (see details on project proposals below).

How long will it take to design, build and launch my Shopify Plus website?

The length of time from discovery to launch will greatly depend on your specific project requirements. After discussing this with you, we’ll prepare a full proposal including timescales tailored to your project.

In general, for a more complex project involving a fully bespoke theme, we typically estimate a 4-6 month timescale.

What information is included in your Shopify Plus project proposals?

After contacting us to discuss your requirements, we’ll respond with a detailed proposal covering key areas like:

  • blubolt services and processes. We’ll explain what we do, how we do it, and who does it! In short, you’ll know what’s happening at every stage of the project from discovery, design, and build to UAT and launch.
  • Project inclusions. We’ll advise what services are included (like technical and design workshops, frontend build, and data migration to name a few) as well as the specific website pages and integrations included within the project scope.
  • Costs. We’ll give you a clear breakdown of proposed costs for items like the design and build, retainer-only and optimisation services, and Shopify Plus fees.
  • Timings. We’ll give you an estimated timeframe for project completion.

We’ll chat through the proposal on a video call so you’ll have the opportunity to meet the team and ask as many questions as you like! Naturally, you’ll need time to process the information afterwards, but we’re on hand for any follow-up queries you may have.

Can you help me manage and/or optimise my existing Shopify Plus website?

We certainly can! Our growth and optimisation packages - which form your bluprint for success with blubolt and Shopify Plus - are available in Gold and Platinum. Each can be tailored to your specific needs and include:

  • Gold Package. We can take over the management of your existing Shopify Plus website and provide services like website development, design refreshes, and partner recommendations, as well as deliver ad hoc project work.
    Our thorough onboarding process means you’ll hit the ground running. We’ll organise all of your website code into our super-sleek blubolt folder structure, whereby each section of your code is broken down into smaller, consistently labelled folders.
    This becomes our pristine ‘source of truth’ so we can effectively and efficiently manage your website while keeping a clear record of changes. And, crucially, multiple blubolt developers can work on your site without any confusion!
  • Platinum Package. Want to super-charge your site? In addition to the Gold Package services, you’ll enjoy our popular and highly effective optimisation service. We’ll help you seize untapped ecommerce opportunities by analysing data and user research to identify friction points and website opportunities. This ultimately leads to meaningful A/B tests and changes to improve user experience and boost KPIs.
