2.Does the offer include information about after the delivery of the site?
Is there a yearly maintenance cost? For example, does it include only the corrections or/and the changes on the website? Usually only small changes are anticipated, but ask what is counted as big and what as small change?
3.There are no hidden extra costs included.
If you are not sure about something ask! Like in every business, hidden costs that are not estimated by the customer can be a big part of the final cost of the project.
4.Lists from which to choose the web-design company you will work with.
ΜπThere are many ways to search for a web design company. There positives as well as drawbacks in each way.
Here we are going to propose you two ways to choose:

Search for antagonists websites see who has undertaken their project. Usually this can be seen by an electronic signature in the end. These signatures are most times in this way: web design from … . You can click on their website and go their webpage and then contact them.
– Search the local market.
If you aim for personal contact then make the proper searches in web design companies Thessaloniki. The results of this search will bring results from Thessaloniki in order to achieve personal contact.
*it must be noted that personal contact is not always necessary for the construction of a website. You may find professionals from all over the world and still co-operate with them excellently.
5.Clarify the list that you have made in order to conclude in the web design company you will work with.
Examining the above, you should know have a list of 5 to 6 companies that are right for your project. Now what?
– Evaluate their older projects:
take some time and search their portofolio and see what websites have they developed. If you want for example to make an e-shop, see what e-shops have they designed and if they are progressing (you can even ask the owner). If you want to create a business presentation, see what business presentations they have already made.
It is important to make proper research of the projects they have undertaken in order to evaluate their ability and quality. What is needed is something usable, simple and individuality in design.
6.Request and receive offers.
A good web design company is always ready to make a proposition which will include time-schedule and also payments terms and conditions. During the evaluation of the offer you can see the level of effective communication with them.
7.In which way will you be informed about the process of the website?
You must be updated about all the phases of the project, in order to be able to watch the development of the project and make your remarks. A change that is made during the development does not contain any extra cost. A change made after the website has been delivered means that hole parts of the website must be remade.
8.Receive confirmations from the rest website owners that their websites were delivered in time according to the specifications.
Sadly, many companies undertake projects without having the staff required. Ask when the design and construction will begin, when will there be in between deliverables and will it be finished.
9.Evaluation of the offers.
Following the archiving of the offers, compare them. Are they well presented? Can they satisfy any possible need of your? Will your website be in a unique way or will it be based on a CMS? And of course…the cost. Cose is certainly a crucial factor but it should not be the only and the most important. Many times the cheapest ends up being the most expensive. What you must always have in mind is the value for money rule.
As experienced professionals , you can judge which offer is the most beneficial for you.
In conclusion, the selection for the right web-design company of crucial importance for the welfare of your company. It will pull you through unnecessary stress, confusion and expenses. Do not select “a relative” just so they will do it free of charge or for an extremely low cost.
