How to Hire a Santa Rosa Website Design Company
The look and feel of your commercial site play a huge part in whether consumers will want to do business with you. You may know everything about coffee beans, women’s fashion or whatever product or service you offer, but you likely need the help of a Santa Rosa website design company to bring out the most in your business site. Here are five tips from us here at Fitz Designz.
1. Understand the Process
Time is of the essence, and time is also money. That’s why you need to understand the design process you’re paying for. Ask about each individual step in the site creation process and how much time and resources are devoted to each step. The company should be able to give you a detailed breakdown that fully answers your questions and reassures you.
2. Ask About Outsourced Work
You may be all too familiar with the benefits of being able to outsource work for your business. You may also be familiar with the pitfalls involved with outsourcing work. Ask prospective website design companies if they plan on outsourcing anything. By keeping everything in house, you’ll have a direct connection to the professionals handling your site, which can speed things up for everyone. In-house site design also helps when error resolution, as well as keeping your overall design consistent with a shared vision.
3. Go Beyond the Visuals
Of course, it makes sense to take a look at the sites a design company has created in the past. That said, you’ll do well to think beyond a company’s visual portfolio. Specifically, will you have to handle the content that’s displayed on your site, or does the company have writers to take care of that for you? Does the company have any experience creating a site for a business in your industry? What about a business of your specific size? You may not like the idea of being the design company’s guinea pig.
4. Understand How Payment Works
Get a thorough breakdown of the costs involved in creating your business site. Do you pay for the total project or just the individual hours involved with creating your site? Are there fees or discounts of which you need to be aware? Is the price breakdown you receive an estimate or an actual final bill? Are there ongoing costs once your site is complete and up and running? It’s nearly impossible to ask too many questions when your money is involved.
5. Ask About Overall Experience
Working with an experienced website design company is sure to make you feel more confident in the final product. That isn’t to say an up-and-coming company will do a terrible job, just that the site you’ve got in mind may require a well-experienced hand. Well-established companies are not only more likely to do a great job, but they’re also more likely to have the revenue necessary to get the job done from beginning to end. Imagine learning the company is going out of business halfway through the completion of your site.
