Top 5 Tips When Shopping for Web Design in Nashville

Author: JLB

Published On: May 26, 2016

When you are in the market for a new website or a re-design of your current website, the sheer volume of options can be a bit overwhelming. In order to help simplify the process, we have compiled our top 5 things to consider when you are looking for web design in Nashville, TN.

1. Do They Speak to You in Your Language?

Every industry has jargon that can be practically unintelligible to the rest of the world. A good web design firm should be able to explain the scope of their services in clear, plain language.

2. Do You Like What You See in Their Portfolio?

When it comes to websites, great design is critical. Pay special attention to items in their portfolio from different industries. Can you tell from appearance if a website is for a photographer versus a restaurant? Additionally, keep in mind that great web design goes beyond how the homepage looks. A well-designed website will combine form with function in an intuitive, easy-to-navigate manner and be optimized for mobile as well as desktop viewing.

3. What Services Do They Offer?

While the design is critical, an effective website needs more than great design to drive success. Between web design, development, internet marketing, site hosting, and email services, it is not uncommon to end up working with 5 to 7 vendors just to manage your business website. At JLB, we are a full-service communications and internet marketing company. We offer far more than just web design in Nashville, TN. We also provide hosting, site backup, email, texting, monitoring, maintenance, and more.

4. Do They Offer Ongoing Support?

This ties into the previous question but deserves to be discussed on its own. Once your website is up and running, how will the content be managed and maintained? Social media has transformed the way the world does business. Static websites that are updated occasionally just don’t cut it anymore. Your website should be dynamic and complement your social media presence. In fact, social media is such a huge aspect of internet marketing, we offer social media management services.

5. What Will it Cost?

When comparing companies for web design in Nashville, TN, it’s important to not only ask about cost but also to find out what the cost includes. Most web design and development firms do not provide hosting, support, or social media services. At JLB, we can give you a quote inclusive of all your internet domain marketing needs.

From design creation to site building and beyond, JLB has got you covered. We make it easy to manage your website marketing by offering all key elements in house. With our business class support, any client requesting support will get directed to the right person and department within our company.
