5 Things To Consider Before You Hire A Web Design Company In Nigeria In 2018 by jchima14: 4:19pm On Jan 19, 2018
In recent times, with the ever growing need for businesses to have an online presence, literally every organization is bound at some point or the other to hire a web design company in Nigeria. This is because having a website is the first step for most businesses trying to boost their online presence. However, it is rather so difficult for most companies to get a trusted web designer since there are many web design companies in Nigeria. This post is to going to tell you how you make a differentiation between the good, the bad and the ugly web design companies in Nigeria.

Below are 5 major factors you must consider before you hire a web design company for your website project.

1. Check what their website looks like
It is crucial to do a background check on the web design company you wish to hire their services. What you see is definitely what you are going to get. Check the quality of their website; and if it is not to the standard you want just look for another company.
A great website design company would ensure, based on its skill and exposure that you get the best design that looks very appealing to the eye compelling visitors to want to take the tour around quality content. If you see no such thing on their website, please get moving. That confirms that they can’t deliver. You can’t give what you don’t have.

2. Experience in your line of business:
Knowledge they say is power. A sound knowledge of your business would make things easier. Imagine a web design agency that does not have experience on school portal design, how do you think they are going to deliver. Yes, I know they may have designed thousands of websites for clients but did you see any school website in their portfolio?
A web design company with some experience about your industry, stand 80% chance of getting what you want.

3. Consider the cost and Compare Prices with other agencies:
Prices will definitely differ; but with a survey from different agencies, you would be able to determine when you’re being unnecessarily ripped off or you’re in for a good bargain. But don’t overlook the quality of what you are getting. Most times you get what you pay for. This is why you must place more emphasis on quality instead of price.

4. Go through their portfolio and examine their work
A good website design company should have an outstanding portfolio showing their ability in recent projects. This is because technology changes fast and you want a company that is in tune with the latest tech skills to work for you.
Take your time, go through their works and carefully compare them with work by other web design agencies. This would convince you to hire their services. Their portfolio will to a large extent show their ability to drive a winning and creative concept; design that is totally different from the existing ones but yet well structured.

5. Customer relations
How responsive are they to you inquiries? Can they be available when you need them urgently? What’s their location and distance? And what is the simplest means to contact them if need be – Is it by email or live chat or mobile phone? This is because, there might be a need to reach out to them urgently. Would you be able to contact them? If yes, how fast do they response?

All these should be considered long before any financial commitment is made to the potential web design company.

I don't agree with number 2, any web design company can handle any site irrespective of their knowledge in that particular field, just tell them what you want, they do research of such site and build yours besides, they can build a prototype for you first.

I think it's high time we had a national regulatory body.

Too many quacks have infiltrated the market.

You give a prospective client a fair quote and the next minute you hear him or her tell you they got a fairer deal from demo quacks.

This is sad.

Contact me for your web hosting, seo, design and development all at fairer prices.

Have your website working anywhere.

decent points.

however the most important is that the client know what a good website is made of.

most are just interested in how flashy the front end looks and the cost of the site.

sad but true and that's why quacks are everywhere.

Really?
I once met an a delevoper with NIIT cert. who couldn't develop a site from scratch but had to always depend on WordPress.

Now, this is not just a graduate in Computer Science.

Point ( 1 ) and ( 4 ) are the most important. But then knowing the individuals behind the firm is also very important. At the end of the day people are driven by different things and most guys from Nairaland often don not show willingness to pay for quality work....including 10's of others offering ridiculous amount to build site for clients.


I recently published a post on 9 Questions to ask your website designer as soon as he hands over your site

This "develop from scratch" thing is old school. The most important thing is for a client to get whatever he or she wants...

Yea, very true. Its old school.
Wait till you meet a client who has seen nice to have custom features in different sites and demands to have them on his site too.

That's when you'll know the limitations of WordPress.

Sure
www.deyonline.ng
www.cloudsoft.com.ng
www.tenya.com.ng
www.obadero.com
www.ogsquest.com

These sites are actually worth N7k indeed.

The following unique features:
1. Takes forever to load (www.deyonline.ng)
2. Crappy layout and bad links
3. Some of the links even lead to empty websites

Chai!
