How to Find the Right Website Development Firm (Part 1)

A polished website speaks volumes about your company’s brand and can also increase sales. That’s why most business owners choose to work with a qualified web development company.

We know how challenging it can be to find a professional web development company you can trust, that’s why we’ve decided to share several key questions you should ask potential vendors in a two-part blog series. Read on to learn more about what you should ask before deciding to work with a web development firm:

1. Do they have experience in your specific industry or niche?

One of the first things you should find out is if they have experience designing websites for companies in your specific industry or niche. Firms with experience in your field will be more equipped to anticipate your needs and solve potential pain points because they understand the industry.

2. What services do they offer?

Next, find out what type of services they offer. Some companies only focus on web development while others offer a wide range of services including internet marketing consulting and mobile application development. Try to consider your company’s short and long-term goals before you decide to work with a company.

3. How will they add value to your website?  

Another question you should ask potential companies is how they plan to add more value to your website. Can they describe how the new website design layout will bring in more leads or make it easier for visitors to navigate? A professional website development firm should be able to clearly explain their entire process and how it will help improve your company’s bottom line.

4. Can they optimize your new website for search engines?

Search engine optimization (or SEO) is crucial for businesses that want their website to rise to the top of search engines. Ask about their experience developing high quality SEO websites and how they plan to drive more traffic to your site.
