When it comes to choosing a web design agency, it can often be a daunting task as the industry unfortunately has a bad name for being late, poor communication, websites that don’t work and the list goes on.
That’s why we’ve decided to put together the 5 most important things to look for when choosing your web design agency, to help you avoid a project you’d rather forget…
1. Customer Reviews
The best way to get an idea of how a web design agency operates and runs its projects, is to ask those who’ve had projects with them. Look through the company’s website to see if they have a reviews or testimonials page of what clients have said about them.
But don’t just take their word for it, you could even ask to speak with previous clients..
2. Data / Evidence Driven
Whilst good design that’s eye catching and in line with the latest trends might seem like the way forward, especially if your competitors are doing it- we’re here to tell you, it’s not! Whilst good design is important, at Pixel Executive we find that the latest design trends and fads have come about based on zero evidence that it actually gets makes sense for the company, which is why we design our websites around being relevant to your business and industry.
Make sure that the web design agency you go with has their head screwed on when it comes to building a website that achieves the desired results, rather than just incorporation flashy designs that may not be appropriate and could be outdated within a year.
3. Communication is key
This is probably one of the most important aspects of any company. If they’re not able to communicate clearly, frequently and consistently as soon as you get in touch, then it’s very likely that your project will run behind or run into ‘unforeseen issues’ causing delays. At Pixel Executive we pride ourselves in our responsiveness and attention to detail. Plus even after we’ve finished the project, we are keeping an eye out for tweaks and improvements that keep things fresh and reliable so you always know what’s happening!
4. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines
When you choose a web design agency and you start your project, no one likes to be told it’ll be done 1 day and it’s done another day. This leads to not being able to plan your daily work and leaves you in the dark as to when you’ll have your new website. At Pixel Executive, we’ve personally never missed a deadline, and we always make sure to communicate at every step of the process.
5. Pricing, too cheap or too expensive
You may be looking to get a new website without the hefty price tag, but we’ve found that people who go for the cheaper route often end up getting a new website anyway as the cheap website has tons of issues and was delayed and delayed…
But we are also aware that you have your budget, and we build affordable websites that come with excellent customer service and even better results once it’s live!
