Title: Web Design Company Mumbai (1)

How To Choose The Right Web Design Company Mumbai
Web Design The Good,The Bad, The Downright
Frustrating. Ok, you know you need a website.
Where to begin? Undertaking a website design
project can be frustrating, but it doesn't have
to be. We know first-hand here at makespace!
media design lab, because approximately half of
the projects we're hired for involve recreating
or redesigning a website that was poorly designed
in the first place. Web Design Company in India
This is unfortunate on many levels, as the client
has now had to pay for a website at least twice,
and has lost untold business due to a bad
website. Like most things in life, if it's
important, the best way to begin is to hire a
professional. The trick is to distinguish the
true professionals from the one's just claiming
to be, and to find one that offers value and an
solid return on your investment. Easy, right? If
you know what to look for, and what to avoid.
How To Choose The Right Web Design Company Mumbai
AVOID Web design firms that are not local. Web
Design Company Mumbai Why Your website will be a
direct extension of your business, so it's
important that the design firm that creates it
knows your business first-hand. They need to know
your products and services, your long- and
short-term goals, as well as be able to recommend
features and content that will help you achieve
those goals. If you do business locally or
regionally, it's important that your web design
firm be familiar with the specifics of your local
market and target demographic. Also, your
relationship with your web designer will ideally
last the lifetime of your business, so you'll
want to maintain it's a relationship built on
face-to-face contact rather than just phone calls
and emails. As well, you want to make sure that
your design firm is accessible, accountable, and
trustworthy before you give them any money. Plus,
don't you want to make sure your money stays in
your city or state, at the very least in the
United States?
How To Choose The Right Web Design Company Mumbai
AVOID Web designers that farm out programming to
other countries. Why Many website design
companies that do business in the US are actually
owned by foreign nationals, and many are located
in Mumbai, India. While you may have an American
sales rep, the design work and/or programming
will be done overseas because they are willing to
do it for pennies on the dollar. While initially
cheaper, this may end up costing you much more in
the long term. Moreover, foreign designers and
programmers have absolutely no idea of your local
market or demographics, and are unaccountable as
they are literally a world away. What happens
when your site goes down suddenly or you want to
make quick changes? Make sure your designer is
accountable and local, not just a voice at the
end of a phone line. AVOID One-man shops that
'do it all'. Why The vast majority of existing
websites on the Internet right now could use some
improvement, and most could use an overhaul in
more than one category. This is the direct result
of designers who are incompetent in one or more
required fields in designing a website that has
all the elements in needs to reach maximum
performance. Your project, regardless of size,
requires several skill sets to accomplish the
needed goals. You need a Graphic Designer, a
Content Manager, and a Programmer at the very
least. To get a better idea, it's important to be
at least a bit familiar with these different
AVOID Doing it yourself. Why Because you are a
specialist in a different field and with
different skill sets. As stated above, it takes
several people to design a site that has all the
elements for success, each of which needs years
of training and experience. You are in business
because you do what you do better than 99 of the
population and you know that you can accomplish
your job more efficiently and more professionally
than someone not in your field. So it goes with
web design. It's also important to remember that
a great graphic artist is indeed an artist, and
an art talent, while it can be refined, cannot be
taught. Even most self-described Web Designers
should be in another field. If you want a website
done right, leave it to the experts. AVOID
Design firms that only offer web design. Why
Odds are you'll need more design work at some
point in your professional career. You'll need
business cards, stationery, advertisements,
brochures, etc., and it's important to be able to
get these things from one source if at all
possible. Not only is it convenient and
efficient, it allows for consistency, a very
important element in branding. What often happens
after a business gets a new and spectacular
website, it injects a refreshing surge into the
business image, and the owner(s) often take their
business image to the next level, so it's
important to retain a design firm that can handle
your needs as you grow.
AVOID Templates, or "Instant" Websites. Why A
template is a prefabricated website design
frame into which your own content is placed.
Because a template is a one-size-fits-all, cookie
cutter solution, odds are your business' needs
won't be adequately addressed. Your business is
unique, and therefore needs a website that is
created specifically to deliver the results you
need. Plus, how many other businesses have the
same template? This is the online equivalent of
walking into a party where someone is wearing the
exact same outfit as you. Again, most web
designers don't fully satisfy a business' needs
with a custom design, so using a templated
website will prove even worse. Many companies,
both local and national, try to pass themselves
off as 'custom' design, then have you choose from
a template and then slap your logo and copy into
it. That's not true custom design and I can
guarantee you it will not bring the results you
need from the web. AVOID Amateurs, your
cousin, students and IT guys. Why The same
reason you don't hire your neighbor, a medical
student, or veterinarian to operate on you.
Unfortunately in this business, we don't have a
Bar exam to pass before we're considered Web
Designers and we don't get a cute little 'WD'
next to our name. Basically, any hack with a
computer and a design program can pass themselves
off as web designers, and the Internet is full of
their unhandy work. Also, many people lump all
computer related professions into one, and
therefore assume that the guys that installed
their network can also design a good website. The
trick to avoiding those self-described web
designers is simple Look at their portfolio. Are
the sites contemporary without being trendy? Do
they look like every other website of their kind?
Are they easy to navigate? Are they attractive?
And the ultimate test Are they still online?
Don't be afraid to ask for references.
AVOID Big, high profile firms. Why They command
big, high profile rates. And the people getting
the bulk of those rates are sitting in a
boardroom, not in front of a computer screen
designing your site. The person actually
designing your site is making 12.00 an hour
churning out your site and 20 others. We call
then Code Monkeys. You'll never actually talk to
this person, as he gets his or her orders from
their Project Manager. Our bet Neither of their
hearts is in their work, because if they were,
they would quit and start their own company, just
like you did. At the end of the day, you paid not
only for your website, you also paid for their
billboard. AVOID Designers that work from their
mom's basement. Why Because you want to know
that you're going to get something for your
deposit and where to find them if they don't
return your call. You also want the very best
website design for your money. Like any other
specialty, if they offer value, professional
results, and are experts at what they do, they'll
be successful enough to invest back into their
business. Look for web design firms that are
members of associations like local Chambers of
Commerce, professional guilds, and the Better
Business Bureau. If they have a studio or office
that is open to customers, you know they'll be
accessible when you need them.
AVOID Web designers whose own sites are lacking
or are not ranked on the first page of Google for
their key terms, such as "best web design
Louisville". Why You can expect yours won't be
much better. You wouldn't want to hire a company
that talks the talk, but rather than one that
takes their own advice. If that can't rank
themselves on the major search engines, you can
be sure that they won't be able to rank you
either. Hiring them, regardless of price, would
be like taking marriage counseling from Liz
Taylor. Ok, now that you are frozen with fear and
have given up on getting a website... What Should
