Many businesses want to promote their business and attract a large number of customers. A website is a way of reaching a wider range of audience. Often times, a website gets a lot of visits but little conversion. Why is that?

Every web design company will always want to display themselves as the best but some end up delivering web design services of low quality. The question is how can I avoid awarding my website project to low standard agencies and get a top notch agency with an exceptional standard?

Below are things to consider before appointing any web design agency for your project:

  • Do they listen to, and share their ideas?

Good web design agencies should be great listeners and at the same time willing to share their own ideas. They must be able to listen to their client ideas since the website they want to work on belongs to their client and the client understands his business more than anyone else. Likewise, while the agency listens to the client’s idea, he should also bring in an idea since he is the one designing so as to help the whole web designing process. A web designing agency that does not give a contribution but just keeps nodding at the client’s idea or does not listen to a client idea and just want his own idea to dominate is not worth patronizing.

  • Level of Experience

You do not just want to give your website project to just an amateur that has little or no knowledge about the whole thing. A good web designer needs to have great and vast experience in web technologies and must have dealt with more than one industry.

  • How long have they been in existence and do they have a going concern?

You do not just want to award your project to an agency that just commenced yesterday and is not sure whether they’ll exist in the nearest future. It’s advisable to go for an agency that has been in existence for a while because, the more their existence, the higher their level of experience. It is also important to know that the existing company will still stick around in subsequent years to support you with your newly built website.

  • Up to date

A web design agency that always keeps itself updated with current technologies and newest design should be what you should always look out for.

  • Deadline Conscious

It is very normal for every project to have a completion period. Usually, web design isn’t a child’s play that will take few days to complete because it takes more than that. Therefore, any designer that promises to deliver within, say, 2-4 days will likely produce a design that is below standard.

  • Excellent communication and customer service

Communication is key.  A web designer should always be willing and available 24/7 to communicate with, and render effective services to customers through any channel.
