If you are about to invest your money in a website make sure it goes to the right company, if you don't you could end of with a poor quality websites that is simply a waste of money, here are 10 top tips to help you stay on track.
The first tip is to make sure that you can see plenty of previous websites the company has already created, this will give you an idea of what they can do.
Find out what experience existing customers have had, ask for some testimonials or even better actually contact some customers and speak to them directly!
One of the most commons issues is getting carried away with the fluffy stuff. Your web design company might design you an amazing website but once built the code could riddled with errors. You can use this free validation tool to check your websites code - https://validator.w3.org/
Quite frankly if you commission a new website today and it's not mobile friendly stay well clear! It's so essential that your website is mobile ready as Google will penalise in search engines.
I always recommend that you register you own domain name and legally own this yourself. If the relationship with your web design company goes sour you have full control of your domain and cannot be held ransom!

I created my business around 6 months ago with very little capital but needed a website to help market. I was actually recommended Cloud Web Solutions and from day 1 I've had the most amazing experience. Not only was my website designed to a high standard, I pay a monthly direct debit that has helped in my first year. I also know after 2 years, I can rebrand and keep my costs. Jack has been fantastic, and would recommend all businesses to use this fantastic service. I will also add, all my queries and requests are always dealt with very quickly and extremely professionally.
I find Cloud Web Solutions very professional and committed to delivering a first rate service to their customers. Jack's attention to detail and understanding of what the client needs together with his patience with the fine tuning process is a refreshing change to my past experience with website developers. I would definitely recommend Cloud Web Solutions for a first class service whatever the size of your business.

We can't fault Jack and the team at Cloud Web Solutions, Any request is completed without argument or issue and our dreams in regards to our website have become reality. This company is a must use for any business when it comes to website design, they are true geniuses.
Cloud provides a fast accurate and intelligent service both in building sites and maintaining them. It is competitive and effective. It is my first port of call for all my websites and I recommend it all the time to others, so I am glad I have a chance to put something on this site to encourage people to use it.
Cloud is Brilliant. I had been very badly let down by a company who promised the earth and it took them 12 weeks do tell me they couldn't come up with more than a holding page. I didn't know what I was doing!
