There are thousands of website creation agencies in France. Which provider will be the right one for the design of your business website? We exchange daily with entrepreneurs who do not have skills in the field of the Web. When they are looking for an agency to create or redesign their website, they don’t know where to start, and for lack of a method sometimes choose a service provider according to subjective criteria that they then regret.
The purpose of this article is to give you some food for thought to help you choose the right web agency for the creation of your website .
If you have the right approach, choosing the right agency can be easier.
What resources do you have internally?
Unless you have a very large budget for your website, you won’t be able to hire a specialist for each of these areas. Start by answering the following question: what roles can we fulfill using the skills available internally?
Each skill that you can eliminate from the combination will make choosing a provider easier. Plus, having an internal resource who already knows your business will speed up the process.
What skills are you looking for in a provider?
There are three main skills required to build websites: strategy, design, and integration. If you can drive the strategy internally, then the service provider needs to be efficient in the areas of design and integration. Knowing exactly what skills you need is crucial in choosing the right agency.
What is your approximate budget?
The price range for website creation is impressive. Some agencies are specialized to work within a budget of 2,000 to 5,000 euros. To do this, they build their design and development process around a fixed and repeatable process.
Other agencies need a budget of 8,000 euros to start. They can serve clients with significant design constraints, or a technically complex website with many types of content and hundreds of pages.
It is important to know what your budget range is so that you can target your search on the agencies that correspond to it.
