How to Choose a Web Design Agency

A few years ago, Barr & Young Attorneys struggled to connect with their prospects. The law firm kept losing traffic every month because visitors did not spend time on their templated brochure site. Their part-time webmaster did not have the ability to grow their company. That was when they reached out to us. Like many small businesses, they knew there had to be a better Web Design Company to help.

First, Let’s Talk Money

If you want professional web design services from an experienced US-based agency, don’t expect it for less than $5,000. Below are different pricing options for a 10-page information enterprise website with varying levels of functionality.

The right investment gives you a responsive website that generates targeted traffic and leads. The wrong site sits alone and unused, forgotten by your prospects. There are numerous custom website design companies to help you create a really great website and increase your revenue, so just choose the right one for you.

web design services

Option #1: $1,000-5,000

Usually, these basic websites suffer from weak design, use a template base, look like everyone else. Often outsourced international web design companies who might not understand US culture.

At this point, you need to manage developers like a part-time job. You spend your time explaining common-sense rules and repeating your instructions repeatedly before it’s somewhat done. If you want to spend 5 grueling months of sweat and tears learning web development yourself then go this route.

Option #2: $5,000-15,000

For an investment of over $5,000, you might get a more qualified web design agency that will offer you a more custom and professional approach with high-quality templates, modern graphics, and animation with an SEO-friendly architecture. However, make sure you have an account manager in the U.S. to ensure the site works for your audience.

With this option, you still outsource the web development process to save on cost and receive the custom features you want.

Option 2 works for companies with revenue between $150,000 – $400,000.

Option #3: 15,000+

The third option works for those who want to work with top web design companies based in the US with good UX experience, quality design, and onsite for your custom needs. This is a great option for well-established companies with revenues of $300,000 and up.

Which option you choose depends on a number of factors. However, if you want to work with professional web developers, you need to aim at a minimum Option 2 and, more than likely, Option 3 if you want a fully customizable site that accomplishes your goals.

Should You Hire an Agency or a Freelancer

Most solopreneurs are on a limited budget because they’ve just started their business.

If a website design and development agency is out of your price range, then work with a freelancer to grow your business initially. A freelancer can set up a rudimentary website when you do not have the money for top-notch service.

While we are not fans of cheap websites, it is nominally better than no site at all.

However, if you want to grow, then one person is not enough to drive significant leads to your business. You need a team with experience in your industry to work on your website development. Having designers, developers, search engines marketers, social media marketing professionals, PPC experts, and copywriters working together will accomplish more professional work than one freelancer doing it on their own.

That is why small to medium businesses (SMBs) hire agencies, not freelancers. They focus on the return on investment rather than the initial costs. They know a quality web design company can improve your conversion rate.

For example, Blackhawk Supply needed more quality traffic to its website. We were able to increase their search traffic by 27% in 5 months. This increase correlated to a 47% increase in revenue from search traffic. Working with an agency that focuses on ROI is vital to the long-term success of your company.

An Integrated Agency with Web Design and Marketing

Not all web design agencies are equal. If you talked to just two agencies, you realize how much they differ.

SMBs usually want an integrated agency that provides web design and digital marketing under one umbrella. When one group manages the entire project, you ensure consistency between your website, social media, and other marketing channels.

If you have any questions about how an integrated agency can help your company grow, then contact us today for a free consultation at 312-265-0580.

6 Tips to Select a Web Design Agency

If you want to find the best web design companies to work with, here are some basic tips you should keep in mind.

1. Experience Working in Your Industry

At Comrade web design agency we have a few specialties. We help attorneys, local small businesses, local clinics and healthcare providers, professional services, construction/remodeling, e-commerce sites, and technology startups.

Most of our clients do work in the service industry, and we know how to help them succeed. In baseball parlance, this is our sweet spot.

However, we are out of our element marketing restaurants or insurance companies. That is because marketing a restaurant and marketing a law firm are vastly different skills.

If the company you work with does not have experience working with your industry, you might want to keep looking. While exceptions exist, remember you do not go to a family law attorney to represent your corporation in a merger.

Find the best web design agency for your specific needs.

2. Review Portfolio/Case Studies

If you own a law firm, you want to see some examples of how they helped other attorneys with their website design and digital marketing.

A few tips when exploring a company’s case studies and portfolio. Do NOT look at their photos. Look for the results and strategies. You are not paying a web design agency for a pretty picture. You pay them to deliver results.

Also, ask the company if you can speak with previous customers. While sometimes they might not be able to connect you with their customers, most agencies can connect you with at least one or two.

If possible, you do not want to be the guinea pig when you work with a web design company. That is why company portfolios are vital to helping you learn more about who you work with in the future.

3. Explore Their Social Media and Blog

Check a web design company’s social media presence. If they are not active on at least a few channels, how will they manage your pages?

While the dynamics change from social network to social network, here are a few things to evaluate for an agency’s social media presence:

  • Read what the agency writes.
  • Check out the quality of the images they use.
  • Assess their attitude to see if it matches your culture.
  • Make sure they post .regularly
  • Ask if their content makes you want to click, like, or share.

Additionally, how do they use their social accounts to offer a remarkable experience for clients? They do not need to put out a stream of one-line jokes and quotes. However, they should post relevant, compelling content for their audience. Many agencies like to share photos of the team to give an insider’s view of the company.

social media marketing

Have you ever seen a blog where the last date of entry is older than your website? Keeping an updated blog is vital for a web design agency.

If they do not create content regularly, then what other things do they miss? Web design and web design continually change. A blog proves that you have the thought leadership to keep up with the changes in the industry.

Also, the content on the blog helps your prospects identify with your style and learn more about how you can help them. In other words, it builds a relationship.

4. Look at the Tools They Use

Every business needs the right tools to get the job done. Just like a contractor needs an assortment of power and hand tools,  web designers need the right tools as well.

For example, a quality web design agency should know how to use WordPress. 30% of the websites worldwide use the content management system (CMS) to manage their site.

However, for e-commerce sites, you might want to use Shopify, BigCommerce, or Magento. A quality web agency can pick the best CMS, so customers get their project completed on time.

Additionally, professional web design agencies rely on tools like SEMrush, CallRail, BuzzSumo, and Moz for search engine marketing. While they are not necessary, these tools keep our search strategy agile while still delivering quality results for clients.

Furthermore, we are proud to be a Google Partner. A Google Partner is a web design agency with at least one certified Google Ads specialist that manages over $10,000 in Google Ads in a 90-day period.

Web Design companies relish the designation because it is a nod from Google that your agency has the experience to help with your next campaign.

Google is not the only software product that has certifications. Tools like HubSpot and Salesforce provide a range of certifications for companies that offer inbound marketing and CRM support.

Make sure you work with a company with the right certifications for the tools your business needs to succeed. They have the necessary training to provide you with the proper guidance for your business.

5. Make Sure You are a Good Cultural Fit

Every company is a bit different. Some agencies are more creative. Creative environments are more dynamic and can adapt quickly to clients’ needs.

Creative companies work great for consumer law firms that work with the public and need something that does not seem so buttoned up. Small businesses like to work with creative firms because they don’t charge as much as enterprise-level bigger agencies and work on your terms.

Also, they make sure the company can work with your budget. We discussed above some general ranges for website design. The question is does a company have the flexibility to help you succeed.

web design agency

Conversely, other firms might do better working in a corporate environment. They are stricter and use more corporate-speak when they talk. The downside of working in a more corporate environment is they are not as quick to move on to changes in the industry and are usually more expensive.

Those same corporate-type agencies also usually have big retainers, strict rules, and lengthy contracts.

Here are some questions you should ask after talking to an agency to see if they are a good fit for your company.

  • How well prepared are they for your meeting?
  • How much work did they put into the proposal?
  • Do they educate you on the industry or just give you pricing packages?
  • Do they listen to you and audit your online presence?
  • What type of website design and digital marketing plan did they present?

What is the best cultural fit for your business? How will working with a specific agency reflect your own culture and goals?

6. Look at Ratings and Awards

Have you ever heard someone tell you they want a subpar attorney or doctor? You want the highest-rated company you can afford. To help you find the best, you want to know what others say about your prospective agency.

Fortunately, a few sites help you discover the best agency for your needs.

The first is Google. Their local search helps you find web agencies and reviews from past and current clients. They are an invaluable source for learning more about how the web design firm can help your business.

web development company reviews

However, if you are not working with someone local, there are other options.

Many firms rely on Clutch, a business rating site that helps you find the highest-rated service providers.

Clutch uses verified reviews vetted by their staff through a phone interview where they ask clients specific questions like:

  • “What was the scope of involvement?”
  • “What is the status of this engagement?”
  • “What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of their engagement?”

At Comrade, we appreciate that an independent third party collects the answers to your reviews. They independently verify how we can help you.

We are proud to say that Comrade was selected by DesignRush, a B2B marketplace connecting brands with agencies, as one of the best eCommerce development companies in the USA.

Yelp also provides reviews of work. We discuss them in further detail below in the social media section.

Don’t rely on the reviews, but also look at the awards a company won. Why do research everything yourself when others already did the work for you?
