Building a website that accurately reflects your business and drives new leads is no easy task. It takes a well-educated team of experienced professionals to create a beautiful website that gets results.
Finding and choosing a website design company is no cake walk either. There's a lot of companies out there that will promise the world for a very affordable price. Many of these website design companies are frauds; people looking to make a quick buck off uninformed business owners.
Remember, when you decide to build a new website, you're putting your business in the hands of that company. So before you hand over the keys, make sure you know what to ask and how to choose the best website design company for your budget.
1. Ask to see examples of their work and for figures to prove that their work has driven results.
It is one thing if they can make a website look great but can they make it functional as well. You need to know both of these things. By asking for examples from their website design portfolio, you can see the kind of work they have done for clients in a similar vertical. By asking for figures on driving sales through the website, you can see just how functional it is and if they website is working. Ask them to show you work and prove the results.
2. Ask them the pricing schedule.
You do not want to be surprised with an extra bill later because you did not know the work was not included in the package. Find out what you are paying for and what is does and does not entail. Know what you are paying for up front and definitely shop around to make sure you are getting a good deal.
3. Ask them how they measure results.
Do they look at the bounce rates, the conversion rates, or keyword rankings? Is this data available to you as the company owner? Do they verify the results and do they provide you with the data? You need to know that the numbers they give you later are verified and are accurate. This will also tell you if the results they showed you of other clients carry any weight.
4. Ask them about their other services.
Do they only provide website design or will they incorporate SEO into the mix? Ideally, you want a company that can do it all for you, especially if you have never created and successfully run a website before. Knowing what they offer in addition to website design can help you in the long run. Ideally you want to work with a company that can build an optimized website, and then service the website moving forward with effective SEO practices.
5. Ask them how the work will get completed.
Ask them who will work on it. You need to know that the person is qualified and has experience in your sector. You should also ask what makes the individuals qualified to work on your website. This may seem like it is a lot to ask but your website is very crucial to the success of your company in this modern age.
