Selecting website designers in Berkshire is something that is personal to each business; as the points above show, each business has their own criteria. For some price may be a factor, for others having one that knows their market may be important.
We do advise you using someone local, as having a face to face meeting can achieve a lot. It gives the chance to brainstorm ideas, have a look at competitors websites and looking at different pictures together.
Using a web designer that knows your industry is also helpful; if the designer has worked in your market, they they will know what designs work and hopefully what kind of website your customers will respond to.
Compare Website Design Prices
Price is always a factor when it comes to getting a website designed, and website design prices do vary a lot. A site could cost £150 or over £150, 000 depending on the features it has, the number of pages it has, the level of design, and so forth. Marketing agencies set their own fees, so there is no standard price for web design.
Websites need to be considered as a your shop window, often the first thing that prospective customers will see. In this technological age, most people will normally check out a website before anything else, so the website does need to project some of the qualities of the business.
Care does need to be given when using a cheap website designer as the site does need to reflect the companies values, without looking cheap. Sometimes it is worth paying a little more for a quality design, rather than trying to cut corners.

A Few Words About Berkshire
Berkshire is an ancient county in the south of England, situated to the west of London, and often referred to as ‘the Royal County of Berkshire’, owing to the presence of Windsor and the royal residences there.
The county’s first mention is in 860 AD, and takes it’s name from the large number of Box trees in the forest, thought to lead to the old Celtic name of ‘Bearroc‘, meaning ‘hilly’.
Berkshire seems a leafy and tranquil county these days, in the non built up areas. However, the county has seen many battles over the centuries, starting with Alfred The Great’s battle against the Danes.
The old county town was Abingdon, but in 1867 this was changed to Reading.
The areas of Berkshire are divided into the following districts:
