How to Find the Right Website Development Company

Every business or organization needs a website in order to gain trust among people. To make that happen, you need a website development company.

There are so many Singapore-based website development companies out there. That’s why it’s important for you to determine which one is right for your business or organization. Here are some tips for you on how to find and choose the right Singapore web design agency for you.

First, identify why you need a website development company.

There are two reasons why you would probably need a website development company. First, is to simply put up a website, since you’ve never had one. Second, is to restructure your website. Maybe you want to restructure your website to make it easier to navigate. Or maybe you’ve rebranded so you need to overhaul how it looks.

Second, take a look at your internal resources.

Then, look whom among your people can help you develop or restructure your website. You need to bring in your internal marketing and communications team to help you strategize and write for your website. You can also ask your IT specialists if they have expertise in and can help you with website development. But what if they don’t have the skills, or wouldn’t be able to handle the workload? Then it’s time for you to look for an agency.

Third, identify which skill you’d need.

The first and second steps are very important because they help you identify which skills you need. There are three crucial skills for website development: strategy, development, and design. Businesses with in-house strategy and design teams may only need an agency to develop and manage their website. But if your team isn’t that big, then you would most likely need to outsource an agency which can provide all three. You can also look for a company that knows about mobile app development. That’s because they have expertise on mobile web that they can bring in.

Fourth, set a budget.

Now that you know what you want to do and what services you need to make that happen, then it’s time to set a budget. You can browse the web to ask “how much does web design and development typically cost in Singapore?” There are agencies which post their rates on their respective websites.

Identifying skills and setting a budget is important so you can shortlist agencies as candidates. The ideal number of shortlisted candidates is three. You can also ask for references from colleagues for possible candidates.

Fifth, look for a project manager.

What you can also do is assign or hire a project manager to oversee the whole process. Your project manager needs to know a lot about website development, strategy, and design. Hiring a project manager can help you communicate your needs clearly to the agency and make implementation a breeze.

Sixth, screen shortlisted candidates.

After preparing thoroughly, it’s time to sit down with your candidates. These deliberations would eventually help you find the right agency for you.
