Shopping for a web design company can be a difficult task. As a consumer, you have to educate yourself as to what you are looking for, and try to arm yourself with enough knowledge to carry on a conversation or negotiation with the web design firm. Straight-forward Web Design Packages go a long way toward making this conversation, and decision much easier. What should you look for when shopping for web design packages?
Web Design Packages should clearly state features.
Be wary of packages that only focus on page counts. In today’s world of content-management systems, page counts really aren’t an adequate measurement of the size of a website. Overall complexity and the number of features have much more to do with the price of a web design project. Check the company’s packages for clearly stated features and benefits, and look for benefits that result in bottom line increases.
Web Design Packages should be fairly priced and budget minded.
Web design packages are often the best bet for small businesses, non-profits and individuals that need to stick to a certain budget range. If you are company that is large enough to put a website out to bid – then you are likely not a great candidate for a package, but would need to make sure that the web design firm customizes a website solution specifically for YOUR needs.
Web Design Packages should be built upon standard and open source technology.
Make sure the web design company uses standard, open source solutions in the development of their website solutions. Look for an industry standard content management system, standard server technologies and programming languages. Having a solution built in something other than standard tools means you run the risk of having an unusable website should your web design firm go out of business, or should you want to move your website to another hosting provider. Avoid proprietary solutions at ALL COSTS.
