Things to look for and discuss with your frontrunners
Do they design Content Management Systems?
A content management system (CMS) is needed for your website. Otherwise, you will need a developer every now and then to make the necessary updates. Secondly, Google loves them. They were built for content marketing, one of the leading ways to effectively market your business. If the agency proposes static HTML, RUN!!! They should NOT RECOMMEND STATIC HTML. They should also know how to create responsive websites. Essentially, a responsive design will allow your message to be received the way you intended it to be. Responsive web design is not just a trend. It is essential if you want your website, to be optimized for every device, from small phones to the biggest desktops.

Designing a website that looks good, and easy to use at the same time, is a hard and rewarding task, that all designers need to learn. A lot of developers think that the UX is their responsibility, but in a website, everything starts with the designer. A bunch of mistakes in design can be eliminated by simply thinking like your customer thinks.
Check out some of the designer’s work. See if you can tell if they incorporate the correct:
Having some spaces in the website, in the right places could make all the difference. Every design needs to breathe. How can you expect your future customers to make the right choice if it’s cluttered with unnecessary info?
Colors could make or break your website not to mention that your color scheme is an expression of your business values. There are a lot of resources available online on how to choose the perfect colors for your business.
