One way to get a feel for a website design company is to look at their website. This will give an indication of their standards, it will also provide information about their services, examples of their work and customer testimonials.
When speaking with a website development company, it is important that they understand your business and your customers. When you find the right web design company you should have made some kind of connection and mutual understanding of what is required and wanted.
Here are some guidelines to help choose the best web professional:
Can they fulfill your requirements? Go over their portfolio. Take note if their completed projects look very similar in terms of format and structure. You will be paying for a website design that fits your branding, not a run-of-the-mill template.
Are their customers satisfied? Reputable web design companies will always be willing to give you referrals upon request.
How is their response time? The firm should be able to respond to your inquiries in a timely manner.
How reasonable are their prices? You want to get the best value for your money, and if you have a limited budget, that the web design company you choose won’t exceed it. If you can’t afford the one that you feel is most qualified, don’t settle for a cheaper designer. You always get what you pay for! Discuss your options, as reputable web designers will often work with your budget and offer solutions.
Can they deliver on time? Don’t be scared to ask about completion dates, or if you have a set deadline, can they meet it.
Do they have the expertise to effectively market your ecommerce website? Web marketing is vital to your ecommerce site’s success. Find a web designer that is also skilled in SEO, PPC advertising, and social media marketing.
Are they personable and friendly? Is the designer willing to help and suggest their own ideas? Find a website designer that willingly gives input during the initial creativity process, throughout the production and even after completion.
