What Are Some of the Characteristics You Look for When Selecting a Company to Build Your Website?

By Jason Freda · Posted on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 · Tagged in Business Website

Many small business owners have different criteria for selecting someone to build their business' website. Some care about price alone while others care more about personalized service and are willing to spend a bit more for that. What are your thoughts as small business owners?

Confidence and experience to me are key. And yes customer service is also very important too. It shows they actually care about your project. I personally have 20 years experience and my other developers all have at least 6 years of experience or more. If you ever need anything and I mean anything when it comes to a website and/or mobile app development let me know. I can get you or anyone else taken care of for an affordable cost. We also support all our work for life in case there are updates or something buggy or if something breaks. We always provide free... (more)

Some people might recommend to check out their portfolios but choosing a web designer based solely on a portfolio is like falling in love on a dating site based solely on their profile picture, you might be in for a surprise. It's static and doesn't really tell you anything else besides that picture (or website).

So my advice is to meet in person, there you can really gather if you two are a good fit. Listen to them, are they all about themselves? (how many years of experience they have or how the agency has grown etc.) or can they put that aside, sit down and... (more)

Depending on the features and functionality, the building of your website may be trivial. What matters is will your new website be able to achieve your business goals?

Traditional business website design risks include:

Bad customer experience. Lots of lost revenue. Sluggish or limited growth. Subjective design (Not based on data). No major updates for 2+ years, until a redesign. Poor results, low conversion rates.

We fix problems everyday left behind by so called "Web Designers", that didn't have a clue what they were doing in terms of achieving the desired... (more)

As a small business owner that makes websites I charge only based on the amount of work that will be done. Some website companies/individuals will try to charge the most for the least of amount of work. To test this, you can ask what the software engineer would offer and what it cost. After getting that information, ask the developer what it would cost if you remove 1 piece of functionality from their work they've estimated. If this number seems ridiculous , then seek a second estimate.

If anyone charges for an estimate then don't go with them. If they... (more)

A great firm will ask you what is your business model. What product or service do you have that solves a pain in your clients life. Then either make a site to generate leads or make sales on the spot. It depends on price points and product/service.

Most designers design sites without any idea about conversions/sales. So you get a pretty site and nobody buying or calling. So look at their portfolio and see if they have sites that are geared towards conversions.

Like I tell my clients, If I help you make money with your site you will have more money for me.... (more)
