How to choose a web design company?

Written by Paul Steinbrueck


We’re continuing our series of videos and blog posts to help you understand the website development process. Today we look at how to choose a web design company, including 6 criteria to consider to help you select the web design company that’s got the quality, longevity and best fit for your organization.

You can read the full transcript here: How to choose a website company?

I recommend basing your decision on these 6 criteria:

  1. What is their mission?
  2. Do they understand your organization?
  3. How long have they been in business?
  4. What are the other customers saying about them?
  5. How responsive are they?
  6. Ask for examples of their previous work.

Eventually you’re also going to want to get a quote or proposal before hiring a web design company. However, there’s no point even asking for a quote, if you have serious questions about whether they can deliver a quality website that will help you accomplish your mission and will be around long term to support you.

If you hired a web design company to develop your website, what factors did you consider? What questions did you ask?

What advice would you give someone who was trying to decide among web design companies?
