Selecting Someone Local

Working with a local website design agency in Grantham is more logical than using one that is based in Manchester or London.  It is then possible to meet up with them, to discuss issues, work out design ideas, and talk through approaches.  

A meeting also gives a chance to talk through experience, if they have done much work in your industry, and look at sample websites that they have created.  

Many web design agencies do shy away from meetings, but it gives an opportunity to form an opinion about the designer, chat to their team and come to know the face behind the e-mail.

Do They Know Your Industry?

All web design agencies in Grantham have different clients, so it is wise to talk to someone that has created websites in your market sector.  They should know what designs work, what ‘call to action’ works and hopefully what your potential customers will respond to.  

When considering website designers in Grantham, consider if they know your industry.

Some Questions To Consider

You are doubtless going to have lots of questions to ask agencies when talking or meeting with them, but here are a few things to consider:

  • Website Platform – There are an under of different website platforms available with new ones coming onto the market as technology moves forwards.  Most web designers in Grantham only design and built with one or two, so finding which web platform for your business is important.
  • Website Hosting – There are lots of website hosting companies in the UK to choose from.  Some web designers in Grantham do have web servers, and will encourage you to host with them.  For them it gives them an additional monthly income, but may not be in your best interests.
  • Payment Gateway – Did your website need to be able to take online payments?
  • Mobile Usability – Search engines rank websites based on their mobile functionality.
  • Service Updates – Websites need to be updated from time to time as software updates are rolled out.

Once your website is created, there are ongoing things that need to happen to ensure it is functioning smoothly.  Will you require ongoing support from designers or are you happy to leave things to tick over?

Consider Your Marketing

Once your website is live, the real hard work begins, getting people to it.  This is the challenge for every business, since there are only a few spaces on page 1 of search engines, appearing organically is essential.

Not all website designers in Grantham offer marketing support (also known as digital marketing), so it may be wise to get a few quotes for this.

In the short term, PPC advertising (pay per click advertising) is an option that search engines offer.  In the long term you want to appear in the organic search results.  This is known as SEO or search engine optimisation.  This is a very specialist area of marketing any few web designers in Grantham will be able to do this.

Compare Web Design Prices

All web design agencies in Grantham are different and all will quote different prices; it is wise to look at different companies to get different ideas and website design prices.  

Freelancers tend to be much cheaper than established web designers since running costs and staff costs are significantly cheaper.

Website design can be very affordable, or very expensive, depending on the level/skill of the designer, and also the profit margins they work to.  The larger your website is, the more features it requires, the higher the cost will be as more ‘design’ hours will be required.

A Few Words About Grantham
