Before picking a SEO and web design provider, you are recommended to pay attention to the following factors:
Price. Ask yourself how much you are willing to spend for SEO and web design. Neither of both comes cheap, especially if you want them done professionally. But now is not the best time to get into serious debts just to establish an online presence. On the other hand, you should not expect to get high quality service for a few hundred pounds either. So if you are a little bit tight on money, it is probably best to invest in web design first and launch a SEO campaign when you gather enough funds. It is a lot better to have at least one thing done right. If you do not have a website yet, you obviously need to create an online presence before you can move to SEO.
References. When you come across a company that seems to offer a good value for your money, do not hire them just yet. They all promise to be the best choice but you should not settle with good sounding promises. Instead, look for proof that they really deliver what they promise. And the best proof is a long list of happy clients. Contact previous clients and ask them about their experience with the company. Are they satisfied with the results? Would they recommend it to you? Was there anything they did not like about the company? Did they get what they paid for?
Packages vs. custom SEO and web design. Package deals are very popular among website owners. They come with a fixed price and fixed set of services both of which are known in advance. But you have the ability to choose between a few packages only no matter if you want to launch a personal or corporate website. Any additional services that are not included in the package a charged extra. And since it is nearly impossible to create a few packages that would meet everyone’s needs, it is a lot better idea to choose custom SEO and web design. In contrary to the common misconception, it is often actually less expensive than the packages.
