What Should I Look Out For In Any Web Design Agency Leeds & Beyond?
There are a number of things you should be keeping an eye out for when it comes to searching for any Web Design Agency Leeds or beyond. You need to be able to clearly see what services they are offering for a start
Are They Just A Web Design Agency? Or Do They Do More?
Web Design Agencies nowadays frequently offer more than just web design. Often they’ll be offering everything from SEO, PPC, to full Digital Marketing packages. My advice to you is try to establish what they do best; because complete Digital Marketing is very different indeed to just simply offering Web Design Services. If it is SEO you are looking for then I would suggest being more specific in your search “SEO Agency Leeds” would be more ideal as opposed to “Web Design Agency Leeds”
Are they Good With Graphics and Image Editing?
A key element in quality Web Design is to be good with graphics and images. Its Okay being able to code but if your niche is very obscure you may need access to very specific graphics and design work. As opposed to just simply utilizing stock images that are readily available online. A good way to establish their abilities in design is to take a look at there portfolio of previous Web Design work. If they don’t have one then this an absolute no-no. Look out for proof that the company in question has actually created the content/web site too. I’ve seen many Leeds based companies try to wing it when they first start out. So this is definitely something you need to be aware of and lookout for because this doesn’t just happen in Leeds. It happens everywhere.
What Are The Recommended Services Along Side Web Design?
Good question, this really depends on your intentions. If your just looking to get a site online for now so you can visually see it; then Web Design alone would be suffice at this point. However, If you are really to hit the ground running and start building your business from the off; you may wish to consider adding PPC to your web design package. Pay Per Click (Formally Google Adwords is a method of obtain immediate visibility in the search results. Using PPC means you will be placed on the top of the search results but the downside to this way is you have to pay each time a visitor clicks. So if your content and pages are not accurate in what they offer you could find yourself in financial trouble very early on.
Another option is to add SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) If done correctly this can also get you to the top of Google. SEO though in comparison to PPC is a long-term strategy. Unline PPC it can several months before you can see your website at the top of the results pages. (timing depends on your competition)
Make Sure The Price is Right!
I see this time and time again… Startups failing because they fail to stay within their budget. Don’t just search “Web Design Agency Leeds” and hope for the best. Do your research.
