How to choose your web agency to develop your site. You have decided on your activity on the internet, but you do not know where to start to develop your site. So, to support you, you have decided to use the services of a web agency. It is, indeed, a wise choice, since these web professionals have the skills to create your website from A to Z, but also to take care of its referencing and all the communication around your project. There are a large number of web agencies and choosing the right provider can be very complicated. In order to help you, we invite you to discover in this article 4 tips for choosing your web agency.
Tip #1: Define your website needs
Before approaching web agencies, we advise you to clearly define your needs. Indeed, you will find many web agencies. Some are generalists, others are specialized in a field such as SEO or website creation… You must therefore write down in black and white the reasons why you are looking for a web agency and what your expectations are. Indeed, you must determine precisely if you have an agency to build your site only if you want the agency to monitor the site, and ensure its referencing if you also need the development of an application… This will allow you to more easily select web agencies adapted to your needs.
Tip 2: Check the agency’s website
From the list of your needs, you will be able to select several web agencies that meet your needs. You can do research on the internet or ask the opinion of colleagues for example. Once you have established a list of web agencies that may be suitable for you, we advise you to go to their website to see a live demonstration of their know-how. For a web agency, their website is a real showcase. Notice if things are done well or if you notice things sloppy. You can also look at the websites already created by the agencies if you have the names of their client.
Tip #3: Trust customer reviews
To choose your web agency, we advise you to rely on customer reviews. Indeed, it is the best feedback you can hope to get on the ability of the web agency to support your project and meet your needs. You can check the references of the agency by asking them for the names of their clients, do a search on the internet, or know the solutions used (WordPress, Prestashop, Magento, etc.). Then go to the sites to find out about the skills of the web agencies, especially if they are companies in the same sector as yours. You can also contact clients to get their feelings about the agency’s work and their way of working.
Tip 4: Ask the right questions to the agency
From your initial research, you should have established a list of web agencies that can meet your needs and support your projects. Now is the time to contact them. Before doing it, we advise you to prepare the questions you want to ask them. We recommend that you ask the sales representative:
- What is the scope of the agency’s services?
- What are its prices?
- How can the agency be reached during the project?
- How is the follow-up ensured once the mission has been carried out?
Also, take into account your feelings about the welcome you receive when you make contact to make your choice.
