If you are starting a website soon then you will want to trust an experienced and skilled web design agency. While many will make promises, fewer will keep. To help you discover the ones that do, to avoid setbacks or disappointments, follow these five tips for hiring a web design agency, and you'll be glad you did.

1) Look at past work.

Every worthwhile agency should have a job it is proud of. Ask them to look at some of the examples from their work. Better yet, wait to see if they offer the information first. If they're really good at what they do, you shouldn't have to ask for samples of what your site would look like with a little hard work and creativity in the design department. If nothing excites you, go to another web design agency.

2) Talk to previous or existing clients.

Any business has its share of supporters and detractors. You will have no problem organizing a meeting with existing clients. The agency itself will be more than happy to put you in touch with someone. But if you want a more unbiased point of view, then you may have to do a little more preliminary work and ask. Once you find someone who cut ties, it doesn't hurt to ask why. It could simply be a matter of difficult times for the business, or perhaps something more sinister.

3) Observe how well the agency listens to your ideas.

What are meetings like when you sit down with your advisor? Do they appreciate and value your input, or does it seem like nothing is being transmitted? While you may not be a design expert, you are an expert on your customers, so make sure your voice is heard and make sure you don't have to try too hard to make your voice heard.

4) Accept nothing less than your satisfaction.

If there are problems near the end of the job, don't accept anything less than what you really want. Allowing a business to cut corners now will end up stiffening you with a design you don't like at a price you can't afford.

5) Choose only the most accessible ones.

There may be many worthy web design agencies, but accessibility is important. If the agency does a good job or not, if you can't reach them, what are they doing to you? Give your business only to people, who make it a priority.
