why choose us as your shopify developer.

Even though Shopify does boast a fantastically user-friendly design tool, you still need to understand why and how the options and strategies work – or don’t work, when it comes to utilising the right set of Shopify apps and features on offer for your particular business. Every business is different, and there is no ‘one size fits all’ magical solution – even on Shopify. You may think your business is doing great on Shopify, but the truth is, it could be doing EVEN BETTER.

A professional Shopify developer who is versed in creating Shopify accounts for many different industries knows the ins and outs of the program and what it can offer, bespoke to different markets, business sizes and financial goals. Having so many options on Shopify can lead you down some rabbit holes that aren’t applicable to your particular business’s bottom line growth which wastes time and potential earnings. A developer can help guide you through the right pathways and optimise every sale you are after by using the right tools. Simple as that. And again, this is so you don’t have to waste valuable time learning to use a brilliant online tool when there is a developer ready to do it all for you!

We had a site designed by Chalk n Cheese in late 2022. They were easy and accomodating to deal with. We couldn't be happier with the result and have had lots of positive comments from our friends and clients alike.

I have worked with the team from Chalk n Cheese for 4 months now and have held off writing a review to ascertain consistency in service and the difference their work has made to our business. We have spent millions over the years in website development but especially on Google Adwords and Social Media. The difference the team at Chalk n Cheese have made to our business so far has been very noticeable and we are so pleased we made the change and put our business in their capable hands. Chalk n Cheese is focused on solutions and a breath of fresh air compared to previous providers. Communication with the team is seamless, speedy and results driven. I could go on but I'd like to say I am grateful working with a team of this calibre of professionalism. Feel free to call me for a reference on 021506789.
