When it comes to finding the best website design companies in Ireland, you should first establish what you are looking for and match your needs to the company that can fulfil them. This blog contains some common examples for you to consider during your search.
How far are they willing to go to get my new website live?
Getting a new website developed and designed is all well and good; but will the company who does this for you get it online for you? Your website needs its own registered domain and a hosting package/service in order for it to appear and function online.
Good website design companies and agencies don’t just design a website for you, they should also be able to help and support you in getting it online and functioning live. While they may not have their own hosting/servers, they should at least be able to point you in the right direction using tried and tested recommendations. If you are not IT literate, they should be able to liaise with domain and hosting providers on your behalf.
Will they continue to be there for my website in the long run?
Most website design companies and agencies (and certainly every good one) should have a grace period of free support after your website goes live. This is to action any faults or bugs that only arise or become apparent once your website has gone live and begins to receive interaction from browsers.
Outside of this standard initial support window, a good website design agency will have support options in place for you to constantly maintain your website on either a scheduled or ad-hoc basis. Of course, you cannot expect this to be free – but rather they will have options for you to avail of support services after your website is up and running. A good website design agency/company will not simply move onto their next client after they have finished working with you, they should want to continue to maintain and develop your website (i.e. their work) long into the future.
Will they design a website that can thrive and survive in the competitive online world?
This point exists in the same vein as the previous two in that a good website design agency will not just simply design and then hand over your website. You ideally want a company that will design and optimise your website so that it can stand side-by-side in the pantheon of websites that exist today. A crucial part of this comprises SEO optimisation and responsive design for both mobile and desktop devices. A good website design agency should have a team and team members that specialise in this crucial optimisation facet of good website design.
Does their history speak for itself?
While they do not have to have been in business for years, they should have a good history and track record for you to view. Consider the makeup of a good testimonial. Former clients only leave them if:
- They were happy enough with the design and experience to do so and
- Their expectations were met and their satisfaction was achieved.
These two points in turn show you that:
- The company are pleasurable to work and foster good business relations with their client and
- The client design brief and expectations are worked towards and met.
