How to Choose a Web Agency

Whether you are looking for a website design or website redesign, the first step in this process is choosing the right web agency for you and your business.

This is an important decision and a key investment. 

The ideal web agency will become a trusted partner in your business strategy, in both the short and long term. Most websites have a 'lifespan' of 2-3 years due to emerging technologies. Getting the 'right' web design will impact your business positively during this time. The 'right' website will deliver a measurable return on your investment. 

Choose a web agency that can deliver a custom designed, high quality web solution tailored to your budget.

Getting Started

Begin with research. Be proactive. Ask other businesses for recommendations. Look through web agency portfolios online. Read testimonials. Develop a clear picture of the style of websites you prefer and types of features you wish to include in your project.

Web Agency Shortlist

Which web agency is the best match for you? Develop a shortlist of potential providers. You may be influenced by geographic location as many people prefer a locally based web agency, however Skype provides an opportunity to meet with designers any where in the world. Also consider the size of agency you are looking for. Smaller, boutique agencies often provide greater flexibility, lower prices and a more personal service than their larger counterparts.

Consultation and Quotation

Make contact with one or more agencies from your shortlist. Discuss your brief in detail. Request a quote and timeframe for your project delivery.

Key Questions 

When reviewing your quote, consider the following questions:

  • Do you feel you can communicate with the web designer? 
  • Do they understand your brand?
  • Are the web designers professionally qualified?
  • Can the agency provide a range of web design services, from CMS to eCommerce and Mobile?
  • Does the web agency have comparable projects to yours in their portfolio?
  • Does the web quote present good value for money while keeping within your budget?
  • Can the web agency provide strategies to market your website on completion?
  • Does the agency understand the importance of social media in online marketing?
  • Can the web agency assist with SEO?
  • Does the web agency offer free after sales support?
