How To Choose The Right Website Design Company

Posted February 8, 2012 at 10:09 am

Many people say that choosing a web design company for your new website is like choosing a life partner; there is nothing better and more convenient if it works out according to expectations, but then there is nothing worse if it turns the other way round. Finding the best web design company becomes even more critical for today’s businesses because running a business successfully without having a substantial online presence is like swimming against rising tides.

So how do you choose the right one? We have put together a list of factors you may need to consider:

Judge a book by its cover

You may raise an eyebrow on the very idea of judging someone by their looks, but a website design firm that is unable to present its strength in a deserving manner should not be considered. Is their website clean, professional and attractive on the eye? Does everything work properly? Do they seem up to date and regularly taking part in online discussion?

Everything costs, but how much?

It is no use going into discussions with a web design firm that charges more than your business can afford to pay. But at the same time, web design on a budget often means cutting corners and compromising on quality. We always suggest the easiest way of judging development affordability is to compare the investment with the returns it needs to generate. How much is each sale / enquiry that your website generates going to be worth to you in monetary value, and how many of these sales or enquiries will your website need to generate each month to break even?

Sample work

One of the absolute basics in determining whether a particular web design firm possesses the level of expertise you are looking for is to scrutinize their portfolio. No one can be good at everything. There might be firms better able to cater to some particular aspects of web designing better than others. The key is to find a website design firm whose sample work gives you solid grounds to conclude that their expertise is the most appropriate one for your type of website. Take a look at our portfolio

Search Engine Optimisation

Do you want to run a business that has a vast outreach? Do you want to bring relevant traffic to your site that is more likely to convert and therefore increase sales? SEO is crucial in order to achieve these goals. You might have the most professional looking, high conversion site on the web, but what is the point if no-one knows about it? This is where SEO comes in. By using a combination of on-page and off-page techniques such as blogging, sitemaps, link development and more, Google can index your site and start moving it up the listings. With 79% of consumers clicking on the first listing, you can’t afford not to invest in search engine optimisation! . Find out about our SEO services

Deadlines

Last but not the least, the ability of a web design company to comply with deadlines is crucial. Time is an element that runs faster than any other, especially when it comes to doing business. A web design company unable to keep to their client’s deadline should be avoided.
