How to select the best website design companies in South Africa for your project?

As you can see you will be spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting a website design company to help you on your next website design project.

So how can you go about ensuring you make the best choice?

Understand what your website design needs are first

Before any of the above website design companies can help you, you need to know what you are looking for, or what your end goal is.

Write all your needs down on a Word Doc and start working on some sort of project scope to send through to your designers. This could include:

  • The number of pages you may need your website to have.
  • The features you would like your website to have.
  • Does the website need to intergrate with any 3rd party software? Like email programs etc.
  • Do you want to sell products? If so how many?
  • Do you have all your imagery together?
  • Do you have all your content together?
  • Do you need your website design company to help you with images and copy?
  • Do you want your website to be found on Google?
  • Do you have any websites that you have come across that you like? So you can share these as refference?

Helping your website designer understand some of the above will help them help you determine what you need.

Is your website design company asking the right questions?

Is a website just a website to you? Or is it a tool that you hope to use to grow your business?

A lot of website designers you speak to are good at one thing, designing websites, some of them are not very good at this either, so be sure to ask them for a portfolio.

Many website design companies in South Africa will dive into the website, the features, the look and feel, the colour palettes and wireframes etc. But are they asking you about your business and your goals? What is the point of this website? Who is your target market?

A great website design company will show a lot more interest in understanding your business, your market, and your business goals. This helps determine what direction needs to be taken in order to get a return on investment.

If the company you engage with is just talking about the website “arty-farty stuff” then be prepared to have a pretty website that drives no leads and sales.

Rather engage with a company that understands how powerful a website can be if used correctly, and pay special attention to what questions they are asking.

Before reaching out to anyone, sit down and ask yourself, “why do I need this website”…Once you have that answered, then start having a bigger discussion with agencies that want to rather help your business grow, and are not just in it to design your website and send you on your way.
