You are looking for the best St. Louis web design agency, and we think we are that agency. Let’s go over what to expect from the best local web design company including experience, honesty and a great plan of attack. Any company that supports your web projects should be known for these qualities.
There are lots of people that will build a website for your business. Many may have a good-looking portfolio of websites, and they will do it on the cheap. It may be true that inexperienced companies are often cheap, but the results can end up costing you money.
There are things we have learned, because we have worked on hundreds of websites over the past 12 years. We have built multi-million dollar eCommerce sites, a powerful social network for professional athletes and web applications that are helping businesses grow. If there is an obstacle, we have faced it.
If your web company tells you they know everything there is to know about web design, SEO, SEM and development, you should run. Run fast. This is a fast-moving world, and there are lots of moving parts. We hire the best and the brightest in web design, development and marketing, but we are always working hard to learn more.
A good web design company should tell you when they don’t know something. A great web design company will then find the answer for you.
You know you want a website that increases conversion, excels at user experience and shows that you are head-and-shoulders above your competition. How do you do that?
You need to make sure that the company building your website gets the following steps right:
Discovery. There is no turnkey solution for your company’s website. Your business is successful because of the ways you are different from your competition. Discovering exactly what you need to succeed online is the most important part of creating a website.
Design. Do you want a pretty site, or a site with great user experience? Why chose? The best web design company in town should know how to make it look spectacular, have intuitive functionality and have it done quickly. It is also critical at this point that your web design company creates clearly defined goals and works closely with all stakeholders.
Development. There are few things worse than seeing an awesome design and learning it can’t be done. At Integrity, we pull in the development team at the wireframe stage, so we know we can build your site exactly right the first time. The best web companies have the project manager, designers and developers in-house, so every step of the process is vetted for success.
Testing. You can have the most popular website in the world, but if your forms are not processed properly, or you have broken links on your site, it can decimate your conversion rates. Make sure you know from the very beginning that your website is going to work in every popular browser and operating system your users have.
Support. Do you want a website, or do you need more? Your web company better know what level of support you need. You don’t want to get left with a website you can’t manage, but you also don’t want to be paying your web company for work long after you have everything you need.
Integrity has worked hard over the years to becomes experts at every part of the web development process, but don’t take my word for it. Check us out, ask lots of questions and make sure you are comfortable with the agency you hire to create your website.
