Here is our list of the top WordPress website designers we have found based on the strength and quality of their portfolio vs the cost vs features of a WordPress website design package. Here are the key features we looked into when we created our list.
Looking at what a company have created is the biggest factor in your decision making for choosing a WordPress website designer. In my opinion, a portfolio is more important then customer reviews. Lets face it, if you’re in business yourself you know how clients expect the world in return for their money! Even though you clearly identify everything thats included and deliver an excellent end product/service, they are still not happy and leave a negative review against a company.
Reviews are not always accurate, positive or negative. Since anyone can leave a review without any form of validation, company reviews cannot be trusted. Portfolio’s however can.
Browsing a clients portfolio however can be trusted. You can see exactly how a website can look by viewing the work the website designer has done for other clients. If you can see their portfolio is updated regularly, it gives you an indication that the company is popular, building websites on a regular basis and produce quality work time after time.
The price is important for anything you purchase. With website design, most companies think they can charge £1000’s for something that should cost a few hundred quid. Why? because these design companies are still living in 2001 where websites used to cost a small fortune.
Today, websites cost no where near that amount and you shouldn’t be paying those prices. With software and technology available today, websites can be built quickly and efficiently, which will reduce the cost on website builds.
Now here is where new business owners usually mess up and end up spending a load of money in addons. There are a number of must have features required for any new website to perform well on today’s tech. The whole point of a website is for it to be found by new customers. You need to make sure the below are a must have within your WordPress website design package.
- SSL Certificate (makes the site secure)
- Responsive (mobiles and tablets)
- Performance and Load Speed
- High quality hosting
- Onsite SEO
