As you search the internet for website design companies in Medford, here is a list of questions you can ask yourself that will help narrow your search.

What to Ask in Choosing a Website Design Company in Medford Oregon:

Portfolio: Do they have their portfolio available online? Is there a variety in their designs and colors? Do they have a broad range of industries that they’ve designed for? The importance with having a variety of Medford Oregon industries is, seeing what is working in a broad scope of industries. This keeps your company out of an industry box and ensures that your site will work in Medford Oregon.

Custom Website Design: Do they offer custom designed websites? Do they have a graphic designer on staff that can work with you in developing a custom website?  Another advantage of working with a Medford based website company, with a graphic designer on staff, is that  it may be a great time to make some small adjustments to your logo, color scheme etc., and often those elements can be rolled into one project.

Website Design Cost: Do they have multiple cost options? While there should be different cost levels, it should be pretty simple and easy for any Medford business owner to be able to understand.

Medford Search Friendly Design: If they can’t find you, then what good is a website? Does the website company understand local search for Medford businesses? eCommerce? How search engines find your site should be critical in the design of your website. WordPress websites are the most search engine friendly, so WordPress architecture is a good place to start.

Customer Service: Do they answer the phone? Do they have multiple ways to contact them and respond in a prompt manner? What is the plan after the website is delivered? If needed is there training involved? What is the method of the training and for how long?

Written Proposal: Do you have a written proposal? Is it thorough? Does it deal with timelines? The size of the website? Who is responsible for hosting? What happens after the site is built?

Testimonials: Do you have access to not only written referrals, but contact information to ask questions about the process. And just as importantly, after the site has been built?

Delivery Date: Setting up expectations on delivery date is one of the most important issues when searching for a company in Medford to design your site. Make sure delivery terms are clearly defined.

Online and Marketing for Website: What happens after the site is built? If you’re working with a full service Medford agency, they can promote the business or brand through social media, Google adwords, search engine optimization, and traditional advertising methods. Can your website design firm manage those marketing aspects for you? The firm you hire should also be able to help you apply the proper online and offline marketing to help you realize your business goals.

Final thought in choosing a Medford website design company: As you’re looking at the website design company’s website, look to see if the personality it represents is what you’re looking for. Is it personable? Does it have a personality that reflects the business? Does it lack personality and is more technical? You should be able to tell a lot about the website development company by their website, so select one that represents your brand and businesses personality.
