There are TONS of website designing companies which do website designing and everyone regard their own as the best. They design the logo, they write a copy of the social media, they outline the marketing plan.
But they do not fit everyone. I know that they all say that they are perfect for every customer on Earth, but the truth is that when you work in B2B, sometimes you will be networked with another company, and sometimes you will not.
So, if you are shopping for the website design and development company, here are some things (no order) that you need to consider your research:
1. Price: Depending on your business situation, the price may be a huge, if not deciding factor, who designs and builds your website.
2. Portfolio: What did the company do for other companies? Do you like their past work? Look at your web design and development company has completed the project will let you know what they can do for you. Make sure to pay attention to the details of their work so that you can tell them what you like or what you think is not suitable for your business.
3. Partner / value added: Will this company be your partner? Is it open to your idea? Will it be time for you to build a product that you will be proud of? If you pay, will they add value to your site? It is equally important to have chemistry with your web design team in chemistry with other professional relationships. Do not forget trust and patience, too!
4. Time: How much time does this project require? Knowing that when you sign a project with a web design and development company, the company will need to take the time to get relevant information with you to build a website that really reflects your business. You can choose to write your own content for your website, but if you want to hire a writer, check if the company offers this service.
5. Style: Some designers require a simple look, while other designers choose bright and bold. Some designers do these nice two. Talk about your business style and ask the company to show you what they think is right for your vision. Hope your vision is consistent with them!
6. Size: How big is the company – how big are their regular customers? Designing websites for budgeted small businesses is very different from designing websites for large enterprises. If the business does not understand your needs and how to fill in (one-on-one meetings, the ability to change content in the content management system, follow the help after the project is completed), you may need to consider a business that is more appropriate for your size s company.
7. The Packaging: The total packaging of the company can make all the necessary custom coding, so that your site in accordance with the way you want to run? Do they work with e-commerce platforms?
8. Aims: What is your website goal? Does this web design and development company help you develop a strategy to achieve these goals? You should know how the company plans to understand your business, what you want your business to be, and how you wish to arrive.
9. Timeline: Do you need this project? Is there a specific date you want to start? To ensure that the company can develop a reasonable timetable, or in accordance with the timetable you consider helping the project proceed smoothly. Do not forget to ask how the relationship between your company and its relationship will continue once the project is closed. Once the site is launched, they will continue to help, or once they live in the world, their work will be done.
10. Team: Who are your contacts in the company? If you are trying to solve what you need to provide, or just want to check, who can you contact you should meet face to face and see if any work on your site will be outsourced. It is important to note that the structure of your team and whether the company can work with the people you know and trust to build your business. Will they consider the idea or the board of directors? Will they talk to the designer who created your business card? If you need a company to play with other team members, then from the very beginning to discuss this issue.
