Trying to figure out what makes a web design company good is one of the most difficult and challenging tasks people have had since websites were invented. From small business owners to Fortune 500 companies, having a reliable web team is always a challenge because you need the work done quickly and correctly. Any mistakes can cause damage to the entire site and keep you from getting conversions from internet marketing. Web designers are often compared to contractors, good ones are hard to find and reliable ones are even harder to keep. Here are some things to look for when you are choosing a company or designer.
They Answer The Phone
Nope, this is not a joke. One of the most frustrating things about dealing with web design companies is that they do not answer the phone or return emails. Anyone who has had more than five years of experience in the industry can tell you that they’ve worked with someone who gave them a great price and had a great ability to work, but they never returned phone calls or emails and it was extremely frustrating. This is something you need to be aware of as you start to look for the right company.
Strong Proposal & References
You have to observe the work they’ve done and contacted the company as well. If someone says they’ve built a Shopify site in the past and sends you examples, don’t hesitate to call those companies up and ask about the work that was done and if they had a good experience. Good teams stand by their work and are excited for the chance to show it off to potential clients who want similar types of sites.

An HTML or WordPress site may be a great option and deliver high-quality results, but if you sell hundreds of items from your business, there may be other sites to check out including Shopify or even Magento. Depending on your budget and needs, a good company will work with you to find what works best for you, not just sell you on whatever makes them the most money.
Following these tips gives you the best chance to find a reliable web design company because these are the things that make them great. If you aren’t sure where to begin, try asking around and contacting businesses where you frequently use their sites to shop on or get information from.
