When you entrust the task of web designing to a web design company, you are not only entrusting your future website but also your reputation and your future to people you do not know anything about. This is why you would need to make the right choice. There are several different factors that you should consider before selecting a web design company – right from the presence of its portfolio to the contents of the same.
The presence of a portfolio
Every web design company requires having a web portfolio of its works for its past clients. However, if it does not have one, then it is recommended that you do not approach the company since you do not know the reasons why it does not have one. A portfolio of a web design company is like its face. It must be substantial, complete, and constantly updated, without which it is not necessarily a good company.
The total number of works
The total number of works done by a web design company in the past can tell you a lot about it. There is, however, no standard number that will tell you whether you are dealing with a web design guru or not. Maybe 30 projects are better than 3 but the quality of the past works done by a web design company is also important. Also, make sure to take the services of a web design company, which has handled a few projects over the years (say 70 to 90 projects in 3 years) rather than many projects within a short time since the creation of each website takes at least 3 to 4 weeks’ time.
Types of works
Take a good look at the portfolios of different web design companies before you can go for the services of one of them. What is the rating you think you should give them? A ranking that is greater than 5 out of 10 would be excellent. If not, then you should consider avoiding the services of the company.
