Choosing the right web design company for your business

Selecting the right web design company for your business’s website can be a challenge. With thousands of agencies and marketing organisations across the United Kingdom and indeed the world, you could be forgiven for feeling a little perplexed, especially if you lack web design or digital content experience.

There are, however, some telltale signs of whether a web design company is right for your organisation. Here at Futura, we have outlined some of the key skills and experiences your chosen web design agency should have.

Business skills

 Working with a company that has a strong track record of helping businesses to grow is essential; without that past experience and the associated skills, they may not be able to properly understand your goals and objectives for your organisation.

Choose a team that can help you to implement a strategic campaign for your website, whether that involves sign ups, data or visitors, as an attractive-looking website alone isn’t going to generate the leads that you need.

Search engine optimisation

If you seek to maximise your site’s likelihood of appearing prominently on Google and other search portals, search engine optimisation is a key skill that you should consider when choosing a web design company.

Although you might hire a dedicated SEO agency to specifically deal with your SEO and content marketing needs, an SEO-ready website design can save time and money. Ensuring that your site is easy for search engine spiders to navigate, for example, can really pay off in the long run.

Brand strategy

Your business’s website could be your first and (for that matter) last point of contact with a given potential customer. It is therefore essential that your chosen web design agency understands your brand strategy and how it dovetails with the design of your site. What personality and unique selling proposition does your new site need to convey to the wider world through its design?  This is a nuanced art and we are one of the very few web design companies that are also business and brand strategists.

Customer service skills

When you allow an agency to assume responsibility for the design of your firm’s new site, communication becomes all the more important. When selecting a web design agency, make sure they offer a customer service that you can rely on. Will they be able to make changes to your website at the top of a hat, or will they be difficult to reach?

Sector experience

It is helpful, wherever possible, to work with a web design agency that knows everything about your business’s sector. That way, they’ll be able to design and organise your site in a way that suits you and your target audience. Whether you require dedicated web design for solicitors or hedge funds, Futura has the sector experience required to design a website that will deliver results and allow your business to compete.
