What is actually involved? Custom designs or just using Content Management Theme?
Ensure you are not charged for development time not required for a Content Management System
Will the site cater to the mobile market? (Responsive Design is the cost effective way to ensure you are reaching those customers)
Will the website look appropriate on all browsers and operating systems?
Some newer technologies may not pass the current web standards as listed by the W3 standards but you don’t want outdated and depreciated code is not used.
Does the developer consider Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
Full SEO is far too big a service to be included in the scope of designing and developing a site but determining your keywords and optimizing the pages to promote those words for the search engine searches should be started in the design phase and implemented as it is developed.
Will there be a contract to outline exactly what is involved and a schedule to completion?
You need to understand the process and also know your responsibilities towards the project.
Prices vary as we customize packages to exactly what your needs are. A fixed price elsewhere typically means you are getting a standard template site with only the basics and this may work good for you but could lead to complications and additional costs to expand it in the future. We can set up the site at the level you want to initially start with while ensuring that it can easily be built upon when you are ready to do so. The scope of the project and your individual requirements will determine the final cost.
Some points to consider to make the best choice on hiring a web design company for your investment are:
*This could include providing approvals of designs, content, images or videos to be used. Confusion of timelines will delay the project
Is there a warranty for the work?
We welcome questions and quote requests for any sized projects and will be transparent to the breakdown of the costs associated.
We look forward to hearing from you!
