Step 1 – Identify a solid track record
Look at how long a website design company has been in business. Chances are, the more established companies will have more experience of working across different industries and so will have previous knowledge on delivering similar, proven solutions.
Step 2 - Look at their portfolio and testimonials
A company’s portfolio is the best way to see if they design the types of websites you like. Are their websites leading edge? Have they designed lots of different types of websites? It also helps to go through any customer testimonials to see what past customers have to say about their experience of working with the web design company.
Step 3 – Establish how much they charge
Let’s face it, cost is most likely to be the biggest factor influencing your decision when it comes to which web company to choose. The old saying of “you get what you pay for” definitely rings true in the world of web design and development. If a website design company can provide clear evidence of the value delivered through tangible results and can provide you with a solution that brings a Return On Investment (ROI), then cost shouldn’t be a deal breaker.
Step 4 – Look at what other services they offer
The digital landscape has changed. Before it was enough to have a website with some Search Engine Optimisation and get found on the likes of Google but it’s different now. You need to choose a company who has experience in other fields such as Email Marketing and Social Media and can work with you not just on your website but on your web marketing strategy.
At Woocom we take your website seriously and want to do more for you than simply churn out the same website template for every company. We take the time to understand your business, your audiences, and the image you want to portray for your company and deliver a customer built website to suit your needs. Areas that we are keen to understand include:
- What are the desired outcomes for your business?
- What is your company history?
- What does your company offer?
- What do your want to achieve with your website?
- What design elements need to be incorporated into the website design etc.
This information is then used to complete a creative brief, and from there, we can provide you with a quote and let you know how much time it will take to build your website.
We’ll be in regular contact with you throughout the process to give you updates on progress and also get content and images that will be needed from you to create the website.
Once the website is live, you will be invited into the Woocom offices to get trained on how to make changes to your website and make sure it’s up to date. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. It takes a combined effort on the part of the website design company and each individual client to deliver a website that looks stunning, can be found on search engines and delivers against your objectives. With Woocom, you won’t be disappointed, because we know what we are doing and are experts in our field.
At Woocom we offer a holistic approach and want to be recognised for our integrity, innovation and our ability to constantly deliver online marketing solutions that achieve the highest possible ROI for our clients. We work closely with our customers and genuinely care about the results we deliver to them. That’s why we only take on one client per industry type to ensure there are no conflicts of interest and at the same time, deliver more effective Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and value.
We offer everything you will need to make your online business a success. And to make things easier on your cash flow, we offer flexible payment terms through our 12 month payment plan. Typically, we see our clients getting results and value from their website before they have finished off paying for it!
We have been in business for over 10 years and serve clients large and small across Australia and globally. Our client testimonials speak for themselves.
“The great thing about Woocom is the passion they have for their client’s success. They go over and above and they deliver. If you are smart, you will speak to these guys before your competitors do”.
