How to get the most out of your web design company – expert advice from Peter Weeks at Daneswood Solutions Ltd
Secondly, decide what your budget for the project is going to be and share it with the companies who are quoting. It really shouldn’t be a state secret — after all, if you were going to buy a new car, you wouldn’t expect the showroom to have to guess whether you were in the market for a Fiat five hundred or a Lamborghini. It saves the company wasting your time and theirs preparing a proposal for a Lamborghini, when you’ve only got a budget for a Fiat.
Thirdly, be prepared to make some decisions — you’ll be asked for feedback on designs, layout, site structure, images and graphics and so on. Try to be decisive and always base your decisions on what is best for your customers rather than based on your personal likes and dislikes. Don’t forget the site is for our customers not for you.
Finally, try to meet the people who’ll be working on the project. Your website is a big commitment and you really want to make sure that you get on with the people you’ll be getting on with.
Getting your website developed should also be fun and developing a good working relationship with your web design company is essential.
