Hiring a Professional Web Design Firm
This is the most expensive option, but you are almost always guaranteed good results if you chose a good company. Find a good design firm that can show you previous clients, and many examples of their work. Also contact their previous clients and find out how the company handles its business. You want to pick an organization that will be there to help you down the road, and it not going to abandon you once your website is made.
The design firm should always have a physical address. It is not necessary to go with a local website designer, but you do want to get a designer that has an established physical location. There are thousands of designers out there so it is a little tricky weeding through all of them .
One good way to find a designer is to find ecommerce sites that you like and ask the owners who designs their websites. Most business owners will be happy to tell you who made their site. By finding your designer this way you will know what final product is capable of being in advance.
Due to customer service reasons we will not directly recommend a web design firm.
