It is no longer good enough to just have a website to set yourself apart from your competitors. A professional design is more important than ever, but how do you choose a designer? By making the following five observations, you can choose the designer who’s right for you.
Tip: there are literally hundreds of books, videos, courses and programmes you can buy to learn more about generating traffic for your website, but your agency’s experience will also be extremely valuable.
The primary downside is that if you’re not careful, you may feel like you have traded one job for another. This is what happened to me. After several years, I stopped having fun. I was tired of seeking out new clients, chasing down payments for invoices, and meeting tight deadlines.
What is the cost to design a website? Before you can ask this question, you must determine what kind of website you want to create. Do you want a simple static HTML site? Or are you intending to sell product directly online where an e-commerce site is a must to have? Once you know what kind of website you want to create, ask them for a quote. Once you get the quote, you can plan your budget accordingly.
Check that they can meet your needs. Quite often companies have a client account team in the UK but their main development team may be based elsewhere. Make sure you get a phone number not just an email address (and not a premium rate number either). Ask the web design agency what the turnaround time is for responding to emails.
This can seem expensive, but if you simply hire a company that will do a great job and put your time and energy into another area, where you can make the money to pay for the web work – you can avoid the stress and still produce a positive result.
