Picking the right Web Design Studio

Picking the right Web Design Studio

Hi 123 2 Web Blog readers,

Picking the right web design studio for your website design project can be quite a daunting task for a small business.

Here are a few questions to ask potential web design studios before commissioning your work to them;

1) Will the web design studio quote a fixed price for the project and will they be upfront about all of the costs that you are likely to incur. If the web studio that you are considering doesn't quote their prices on their website and they are vague about what you will be up for then my advice is to steer clear.

2) Will the web design studio write content for you or are you expected to create content yourself. Writing content can be a daunting task for a new website owner. It will make it much easier for you if the web studio either writes the content or edits it for you. Here at 123 2 Web we can either write the content (sometimes from bullet points provided by the customer) or we can edit your content to put it in an internet friendly format.

3) What does the web design studio do in relation to changes that need to be made to the website once it goes live. A lot of web studios will put together cheap websites for customers and then charge the customer serious money to make small changes. What you need from your web design studio is a website with a CMS (content management system) which allows you to make your own changes. Here at 123 2 Web we have a really user friendly CMS but also if you have small changes you can simply ring us up and we will make the changes for free.

4) What sort of contract does your web design studio have for hosting? Some companies will lock you in for 2 years when providing hosting. At 123 2 Web we have no contracts.

5) Where will your web design studio be hosting your site? There is a lot of cheap hosting out there and as with lots of other things in life you absolutely get what you pay for. Make sure you know where your web design studio will be hosting your site and what sort of uptime their host guarantees.

I hope these questions help you in choosing a web studio to help you get your website design project off the ground.
