Choosing Someone Local
For companies that are based around Richmond, working with local website designers in Richmond is always to be recommended rather than one that is from outside of London. Even though there are many website designers in London, working locally is always preferred. Rather than having the need to communicate via e-mail and phone all the time. It is always better to meet with them before ‘going ahead’ with them.
- Initial Meeting – this gives a chance to get to know them, ensure that they are what they claim to be on their website (as with websites these days, companies can claim anything) and chat through their industry experience
- Review Meeting – once the website is in place, having a face to face is good in order to look at ways of improvement and further design/development
Experience and industry knowledge are also two things that need to be considered when selecting a company. As there are hundreds of website design agencies around, selecting one that knows your sector will be beneficial.
All website designers set their own rates, some charge per hour, some per completed project. One thing to consider is that all are privately owned businesses, and as such are in place to generate profit. In today’s society of the credit crunch, getting value for money is important.
- Shop around – by getting quotes you can ensure that you are not overpaying
- Quality – by comparing companies you can select the highest quality designer for the best price
- Testimonials – by talking to current clients who the designer is working with, you can get a feel for what they are really like. Do they perform well, stick to time scales, make themselves easily contactable for when there is a glitch, and are they good value for money?
By taking your time and digging beneath the surface you can get the highest quality designer whist not overspending.
Richmond in a Paragraph
This town in the south-west of London, lies within the M25, and is named after the Palace of Richmond, built in 1501 for Henry VII, which existed until 1649 as a royal residence. The town was originally known as Shene, which for some reason was not listed in the Domesday Book of 1086, and is derived from the Saxon name ‘Sceon’. It is known for Richmond Park, London’s largest royal park endorsed by Charles I for hunting. It is very much a residential area of London with local shops and facilities. The council are looking at how to encourage more business into Richmond.
