The moment that you decide to hire a web design company, you are entrusting to it your company’s success. A big chunk of customers begin as mere web visitors. Their decision to stay and browse through your website depends on two things: the usability of your products and services, and the user-friendliness of your web design. No matter how cool they think your products are, if you have an unfriendly website, you risk the chance of them closing the window anyway.
Ask for recommendations
Don’t have a company in mind? Ask a friend who’s in the same industry if he/she knows a company that can make your website happen? Maybe they have worked with one already before? Can he/she recommend that company? There are a lot of at stakes here, so it’s mighty important that you trust the recommendations being made. Make sure to tap someone who knows the industry you’re in. Don’t just go on asking a random friend about web design.
Scourge the internet
Search for Lakeland web design companies near your location. There should be several out there. Choose from this list based on their geographical nearness and their reachability, meaning they answered the phone in the first three tries and they were friendly in responding to your inquiries.
Look through the Yellow Pages (not!!!)
We have to include this here to remind that you should never check out the Yellow Pages for your web design needs. Why? How would you feel for a company that uses the Yellow Pages to advertise their services, which is internet based? It doesn’t make any sense for web design companies to not use the world wide web to market their own products.
Check out each company’s site
Want to know how creative or innovative these companies are, right? Check out their websites and see how they used each element to their advantage. You will get a sense of how they design websites and how they maximize each of the features. Their websites will be the best portfolio about that company. They will let their best web designer create their website, which means you’re looking at the best they have to offer.
