Exactly how we help you reach your full
We’ll help you rebuild the house. Re-strategise your brand, redefine your core messaging to reach even more of the right people and we’ll reposition your products with that next level in mind. Through strategic, intelligent, consumer-focused and research-backed design.
When your current site is costing you money and your potential customers time, you know its time to evolve as a brand. We have the hard-won expertise and experience to ensure that a site migration goes quickly and smoothly so that your brand can continue to scale sustainably
A good e-commerce site is the home of your brand. And, like any good home, yours will need maintenance, repairs, upgrades and extensions as you and your business continue to grow. Thats why we have an ongoing partnership program with all of our clients alumni. Oncewe’ve finished your design, build and handed over the keys, we’ll discuss the different options for you that range from ongoing ad hoc maintenance to fill on fractional site management
The Shopify agency you can trust
We give you the tools you need so that you can continue to have the impact and influence you know your brand was meant to.

"Can’t say enough good things about Rainy City. Their attention to detail and communication is top notch. Have seen amazing growth in just a short time since we started working with them. Highly recommend!"
Nick Judge | Untamed Petals
Working with Rainy City has been amazing! They are very responsive and timely at getting things done. We have been around for 10 years and have worked with many developers over the years, and have had problem after problem with every company we've worked with. We finally found a dev team we can rely on, and it has been a game changer for our company! 10/10 recommend this team to anyone with Shopify theme development needs.
Braden Larsen | Sparkle in Pink
“Rainy City was nothing short of awesome to work with! Very knowledgeable in the space and helped us make several much needed enhancements. Would strongly recommend!”
Dane Burneson | Aksels
“Iron Doggy™ has been partnering with Rainy City Agency since Autumn of 2020. We required an agency that would take the time to understand our needs and requirements. Our website has improved dramatically not only visually but functionally for the user and for increased conversions rates. They were extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and fun to work with. They were proactive and we were very happy with the final results. They always went out of their way to help and I have asked them to work with us on additional projects. Thank you especially to Rebecca and Bethan. I highly recommend RCA!”

The Rainy City Methodology
It’s really important to us that you actually enjoy working with us (a radical notion, but we’re sticking to it) which is why we always offer a small project to start with, so we can get to know each other and see how it would feel for us to work together (invoiced for up to 10 hours). We’ve been on the wrong side of hiring external agencies and consultants and that’s no fun for anyone. We spend the time we need to integrate ourselves into your business, your world and understand what really makes your customers tick so we can create a solution that not only does what it’s supposed to (like increasing conversion and CLV) but actually gives you time back to do things like, you know, actually run your company.
- Smaller commitment upfront projects (so you can’t lose)
- Process and project goals that feel good for you
- Current challenges and obstacles
- Discovery workshops
- The big future vision
- Business goals and objectives
We’re not aiming straight for the wallet of your customers. We want to really understand what captures their attention and keeps it. Time is no longer the most valuable resource we have, our attention is. And with more noise than ever before online, it’s important for us to understand the finer nuances of what works to capture the attention of YOUR ideal customers, how they behave online and what keeps them coming back. We do this through things like heat mapping and User Experience research.
• Competitor analysis
• Consumer buying behaviour
• UX research
• Heat mapping
• UX & Tech audits
• Current performance analysis
We’re not simply thinking about what we think looks nice, we’re using our research and the foundational strategy to make strategic design decisions based on what your customers actually want. Then, we're taking a deeper look into your backend, your systems, the entire customer experience from start to finish so that we can create an environment that they want to spend time in, tell all their friends about and come back to again and again.
• Strategic exploration and discovery sessions
• App partners
• Development requirements
• Design direction, ideation and collaboration
• Design guidelines and strategy
• UX/UI Design for maximum conversion
We’ll develop the kind of site that makes you say “how did you get it to do THAT”. The kind of development that takes beautiful, strategic design (and your brand right along with it) to the next level. We design sites with a mobile-first approach (because that’s where pretty much everyone is going to find you), so that you have the absolute best chance at creating next level experiences for your audience that make it super easy for them to say YES to your products.
• Platform Migration
• Full Site Redesigns
• Front-end Development
• Backend Integrations
• Project Management
• QA Testing & Usability
• Site speed (we have our own custom site speed generator)
• App Development & Installations
Once you have the strategy, design, functionality and ongoing support from experts that you really need at the level you’re playing at, the only thing that’s left is to focus on your biggest vision and how far you can really take this thing. Buy-in from investors, bigger and bigger impact and influence, giving back and more. Now the fun really starts. And we can’t wait to help you get there.
• Customer retention optimisation
• Upsells, cross-sells and overall site optimisation
