What are the unique selling points that you have to be on the lookout for to make you choose one company over any other.
This question really depends upon the type of business that you are in, eg. if you are a fancy hotel with a number of restuarants, you are going to need a website a little more upmarket than say a local tradesman such as a plumber or an electrician; this is obviously going to reflect in the price that is charged Website Design.
If you are going to want regular updates to your website this will also be reflected in the price you pay either monthly or at the beginning.
One of the most overlooked items when looking for a website designer is whether or not any search engine optomisation (SEO) is included, without this your website will never get seen by people/customers searching for the keywords relating to your website/business, this is probably the most important factor when deciding who to get to design your website.
Designing websites today is relatively easy compared to 5 or ten years ago, you have content managed websites such as WordPress these can be built by anyone with an intermediate knowledge of computers, you do not have to have any website design or html knowledge. Hence the reason why there are so many website design companies springing up, what
companies don’t or can’t do is the most important thing to do with a website and that is SEO, the problem is that it takes a very long time to do it rightnow.
If you are looking for a website design company in your local area simply type in to Google “website design” + your locality, for example website design in Lincoln, this will bring you up a list of website designers in Lincoln showing with a map in the top right hand corner and little red flags showing where the businesses are located, you need to be choosing one of these businesses as there SEO skills have been shown by them being on the first page of Google.
Now you have to decide what you want to pay for being on the first page of Google, I can pretty much guarantee that 98 percent of website designers will only want to build you a website first then charge you a fee for doing SEO work, what you need is the 2 percent of website design companies that do everything as a package and that allow you to pay for it monthly and without signing any kind of contract, let me explain.
