As a business, finding the right web development company is not easy; as there are lots around offering state-of-the-art services at record low prices.
They are after all cheaper (mostly) and may be able to do a better job. You can also opt for a website development agency in Sacramento such as Tech Cells.
Using a local web development agency.
The main benefit of working with a local agency is that you can visit them and discuss the project face to face. Having an initial meeting with the agency will ensure they are competent and also help in communicating what the project is.
What about using an offshore web agency?
Quality – this would be hard to control if you cannot meet the agency. Skype and webinars are all well and good, but nothing beats a face-to-face for being able to communicate and discuss.
Remembering that only 10% of communication is verbal, talking on the phone or via e-mail means that the web agency misses 90%.
There are criteria that most companies look for when choosing a web agency
- Do they understand the project?
- Have they experienced your industry?
- What will it cost?
These are the main things that come up when looking for a web company.
Meet with the agency (as mentioned) is the best way to a/ get a feel for the agency and if they are the sort of agency for you b/ they do understand your project. Many companies will say they understand when they really do not (as no one wants to tell a customer 'we do not understand' – could lose the client) understand.
