Choosing a company to design your website can be difficult. With several web agencies in the area, how can you be sure that you are getting the best bang for your buck?
Here are 20 questions to ask your web developer and web designer to ensure that you are getting the site your business deserves.
1. Do you use pre-made templates? Or will my website be custom designed?
Many web development companies use pre-made templates. These templates don’t look bad, but your website could look eerily similar to a few others in their portfolio. Be sure to ask if your website will be custom or template.
At Techno Goober, we create both custom websites and template sites. The main difference between the two is budget. A larger budget receives a custom website, while we use templates on smaller budget designs to save you money. Don’t worry though. We have plenty of templates to choose from that will make your website look one-of-a-kind every time.
Do you need a new website? Are you struggling with where to begin? We understand that web design can be daunting.
When you work with an agency like Techno Goober, our expert designers will ask you a number of questions to get started. Questions like:
- What are some websites for businesses similar to yours?
- Are there any elements on those websites you like or dislike?
- Do you feel there is something missing from your competitors’ websites?
- Is there another website that you like how it looks, feels, or functions?
- Is there another website that you DON’T like how it looks, feels, or functions?
- What images, content or colors would you like to use?
- Do you need us to take or find photos for you?

There are a number of phrases we dread hearing from a client. Whenever we hear them, bad things happen. As a client, your goal is to get the best service and receive the best product. To avoid unleashing the wrath of our web developers and designers, do your best to avoid these phrases.
Once upon a time, Techno Goober didn’t have the greatest marketing strategy. Living in a small town in a small state, we relied on word of mouth and neighborly love to gain clients. That’s not always enough though.
Eventually, we realized word-of-mouth marketing wasn’t sustainable. Business was slow, and we knew if we didn’t do something fast, we would start to struggle. As a web design company, we needed to up our digital marketing game. That’s when Techno Goober went through a sort of Marketing Renaissance.
