Need a landing page for your marketing campaign? Want to revamp your existing website? You need a competent team that can offer web design services to suit your project. Even companies that have the budget to hire an in-house team of web designers and developers prefer to outsource their requirements, primarily because it saves effort, time and money. Here are some quick things to know before you consider outsourcing web design.
Find more about the company
The scope of web design is huge. For example, a company might be great at designing landing pages, but they may not offer web design services. We strongly recommend that you find a company, like Landinfy, which specializes in diverse projects, CMSs and programming languages. For that, you can ask a few basic questions-
- How long the company has been in business?
- Do they work with large businesses and small brands alike?
- Have worked with clients with a similar profile as yours?
- Who are the core web designers and developers?
- Will they offer an estimate for free?
Most website design services will offer a no-obligation estimate, but price alone is never a reason to select a company. The estimate, however, should be based on the scope and requirements of your project. Keep in mind that web design is a scalable job, but no two websites have same requirements, so steer clear of services that charge a fixed price for almost every job. A professional company will want to know your requirements, and based on that, they will offer an estimate. In most cases, you can expect to get some level of tech support for bug fixes and other issues for at least a month, but if you don’t plan to manage the website, ask for a maintenance contract and get an estimate additionally for that.
Reviewing work profile
The work profile of a web design company is something you need to check in detail. Any random service can claim great things, but only live and running projects can substantiate what they say. Make sure that you review their recent work, and if required, get client references. A company that has been around for a while or has worked with clients across niches will never step back from discussing work.
Make sure that there is someone from the core web design team that can answer all questions and offer updates on the go.
