When you first search for a web design company, you probably go for the one that seems to offer the most value for money. This is a good tactic as it means you are likely to get a good website for less cash! Once you have chosen your web designer, it is important that you communicate fully with them to establish the best course of action.
Firstly, make a good list of things you really want from your site – if you plan to sell things through the site, think about how you want to take payments, how you want to display your items and organise your stock.
If you want to have a social media presence, consider which networks you wish to feature on and how often you want to post items. The agency should be able to offer advice and assistance if you aren’t sure which ones would work best for you.
