Choosing A Web Design Company in Kansas City – 5 Questions to Ask Before Committing

by Lifted Logic

At Lifted Logic, we understand that choosing a web design company isn’t an easy decision.  There are a lot of things to take into account such as price, timeline, service, product, and results. Here are some questions (and our answers) to ask before you commit to choosing a web design company in Kansas City!

Is the company established and experienced?

You don’t want to have a website problem, call your web design company, and find out they’re no longer in business. That won’t happen with us.  Lifted Logic has been building websites and growing businesses for the better part of a decade (eight years) and we have no plans of slowing down.  We’ve built thousands of websites and worked with hundreds of clients.  In short, we know what we’re doing and work with businesses who fit well into the culture we’ve created.

Do they custom build websites or use templates?

In web design, you get what you pay for.  We’ve written on this before.  Yes, templates are less expensive, but also look cheap and are easily replicated.  Our clients want their websites to stand out from the crowd.That won’t happen using a template similar to the competition. At Lifted Logic, we custom build all of our sites for our clients’ specific needs and goals.  We will never use a template; you can be sure that any website we build is completely original.

Will they be outsourcing any of the work for the website?

When a company outsources work, it makes it more difficult for you to work directly with the designer working on your site. This allows for miscommunication along with delayed responses to questions you may have.

Everything we do at Lifted Logic is done in-house.  Design, development, videography, photography, and copywriting are all done in the same office.  If a designer has a question for a developer (or a copywriter) they can walk over and ask them.  There’s no phone tag or waiting to hear back on an email.  The constant communication between employees helps us to produce the best product possible.

Will you get to work directly with a designer or will you only be meeting with an account rep?

Constantly going through a third party can create confusion between the client and developer, limit creativity, and waste time. Each of our clients has a project manager who is their main point of contact for their website from start to finish, but also have direct access to the designer and developer.  During our process, after initial meetings with our Adam, our owner, and a project manager the next meeting is with the client and the designer.  This meeting helps the designer to get a better feel for exactly what the client wants their website to look like.

Does the company understand marketing, advertising, & design or are they just coding and management?

The goals you have for your website will dictate how big of a factor this is.  If you’re looking for a way to market, promote, increase leads, and convert those leads you’ll want to choose a web design company that understands how to do all those things, rather than one who is limited to only building websites.  Lifted Logic has experience in brand development, marketing, advertising, and building websites that are SEO friendly.  We include training on how to write blog-friendly SEO content to all our clients.

When choosing a web design company, make sure you have a good understanding of what you’re getting into.  Ask any questions you have and be sure that they can answer to your satisfaction.  Choosing a web design company in Kansas City should be an exciting decision not a stressful one!
