4 things to look for in a design agency

If you found this article, then maybe you’ve already decided that you need to invest some money into your online presence. This could be a new website, an advertising campaign or maybe you just need someone to look after it all for you. Finding the right person or design agency to work with is vital to the success of any project.

Let’s take a look at some top things to look for when choosing a team or web developer to work with.

1. Do you get on with the design agency?
The relationship that you create with your designer / agency has the potential to be a long thing. Do you get on with them or do your personalities clash? If you have already started a conversation with them, was it hard work or was it natural. It’s hard to put down in writing exactly what this means, but if your initial impression is not good, then walk away. A few years ago I went to buy a new car so I went with my wife to the local dealership to arrange a test drive. The car was great, but the salesman was really hard work. In the end we walked away and bought a car from somewhere else.

Increasingly, our priorities are changing when it comes to SEO.

1. Start with the basics
In our very first client consultation, we will discuss keyword, the scope of the business and type of customers they are targeting. It is vital to know your target market before you think about structuring the content.
