Do you find yourself wondering if it's time for a website refresh? Or maybe you are starting a new business and you're in need of your first ever website design.
There are a ton of agencies out there providing this service but how do you know what to ask? We put together 20 questions and their answers to help anyone looking to hire a web design agency so you know what to ask.
Whether you decide we are the right fit for your business or not, whomever you do hire should have answers for any of these questions.
Here is part 1 of 2 of 20 questions to ask before hiring a web design agency.
This is pretty common, people assume when they get a website built that they are tied to that agency to make changes for them ongoing. While this is something we offer, we also make sure that any website we build is editable by the client. We want to give the client as much control to make edits and always improve upon their website. Keep in mind, with a custom website build there are a lot of items that you wouldn't generally edit regularly so they might not be as easy to update as pictures, text and menus.
2. Am I able to monitor your progress while you build the website?
4. How will you measure results? (visitors, bounce rate, conversion percentage?)
5. What type of analytics will I have access to?
6. Will I be trained on how to use the site?
7. Do you specialize in search engine optimization (SEO)?
8. How experienced is your team?
Experience is important with web development. Everyone needs to start somewhere but we are proud to say we have designed, developed and launched over 1000 websites. There isn't too much we haven't seen. When reviewing a web design agency you're going to want to do your research. Check out websites that they have built before and even reach out to some of their customers.
9. Have you worked on projects similar to mine?
10. How is the website built?
This a lot to digest but there are still more important questions you should ask! Stay tuned for part 2 of 20 questions to ask before hiring a web design agency.
