Choosing a Web Development Agency

Web Development Buyers' Guide

As mentioned in the previous section, your website is your link to your customer. It therefore needs to represent you in the best way possible which makes choosing the right web development agency absolutely crucial. It is a big investment, and one that could be costly if it goes wrong. So make sure you do as much research as possible.

Look for Testimonials and Reviews

The development of your website can seem like a very complicated process, so the companies that make it sound simple will naturally draw your attention. It is essential that the web development agency is transparent with the service they offer. This may be difficult to tell initially, so see if they have any testimonials or reviews.

Check Out Porftfolios

It can also be extremely worthwhile to have a look at their portfolio of recent work. Most web development agencies have this section on their website. You can then get a feel for the type of work they do and the quality of product. Furthermore, you can actually judge the quality of their own website while you are using it. This may be a simple suggestion, but you can assess the quality of the website they have chosen for their business.

Interview and Vet

Once you are happy with your research and have narrowed it down to a few companies you can then invite the companies to pitch. Their approach to your project and the relationship you're able to form via interviews and initial conversations should help you reach a decision. The ideal web development agency should be the best combination of the following; a great reputation, transparency of quote, a decent portfolio, proven expertise, effective communicators and offer a reasonable price for your package.

Nail Down Costs

Price certainly isn't everything when acquiring web services as the quality of product can range dramatically. Obviously everyone has a budget so it is advisable to stick somewhere below that and allow yourself a reserve in case you need any extras down the line. Make sure when you are receiving quotes that the company details exactly what you are getting for your money. You know then that you are not going to be stung with any additional costs further along in the development process.
