Once you have decided that you are in need of a website for your business, you need to determine who will help you develop your website. There are many options to choose from including student designers, freelance designers, web designers and web design companies. To get the best website for your business you need to choose someone who have a lot of experience designing websites for small business and the portfolio to prove it.

To help you hire the right website design company, here are a few useful tips that you can utilize to make sure that you get the best website design at the best value.
1. Search Online – By searching online for a web designer or web design company, you will return a list of website designers and web design companies. This is often a very good place to start because you can start the vetting process right then and there.
2. Narrow Your List – Start with a list of three to five, and then start narrowing down the list by calling each one of them and obtaining their pricing and reviewing the samples.
3. Identify the Best Value – Look for designers whose prices are in your price range but also have a quality portfolio of professional and eye-catching designs that stand out and make a great impression. Discuss your timeframe for getting the project live and whether or not they are able to fit your project into their roster in order to deliver your project on the go live date that you have set for yourself.
4. Make a Decision – After you have spoken to the designers or a web consultants at a web design company and obtained their pricing, the next step is making a decision on who you would like to move forward with. Think back to how knowledgeable, easy to talk to the people that you spoke to were, perhaps one company you had a connection with rather than the other. Often times these are the little things that can help you make the right choice, when both companies seems to have great work at a price that fits your budget.
