Q1. Do you offer customized website design or just template designs?
For starters, web design template and custom web design are both effective approaches for website design. An overwhelming number of web development and designing firms however, offer just template designing; because that’s much easier and faster (not much training or coding expertise required either). However, while template design might suit the needs of low budget small website, a solid custom design is the best way to go for large e-commerce based websites, to ensure optimal performance, scalability and security.
Q2. How long will you take to complete my website?
One of the most common pain for businesses is about delayed projects by the firms. So, if you want to avoid the pains of project delays make sure you ask firmly and positively about the project timeline. Remember, don’t settle for an estimated timeline, rather for with an executable timeline; by dividing the project into small sub-tasks with a shorter trackable timelines. This way you will be able to effectively monitor and supervise the entire timeline of the project.
Q3. Do you have the expertise of logo designing?
While you may choose a different company to get yourself a business logo, that will be more time taking and expensive. Moreover, since logo is an important business marketing component that works as a face to your business, it’s only natural to get a business logo designed from the same firm who are designing your website. This is because they will be more closely aware of your business model and use the project knowledge to design an aesthetic and intriguing logo.
Q4. How many changes will they implement in the website design?
Website designing is a tedious work that often comes with repeated changes. While, you may have already finalized the overall design concept with the company, there always remain some room for change and improvement. A professional web design company will offer you as many changes as required (talking about minor changes) till the project completion and then some minor changes as well for small fee. Thereby, confirm from the company is they are offering any free changes during project or after project changes.
Q5. Who will be working on my project?
This is an important and absolutely critical question to ask. Many web design companies tend to over-claim their expertise and staff by bringing in their best members for the initial meeting. However, once they have the project they throw it to the junior staff without adequate senior level management. Thereby, before you handover your project, make sure you are able to meet the entire team whose going to be working on your project.
