One of the best ways to choose is simply to look at the finished products. Ask the potential providers for examples of their work, and review the websites they’ve built. Then search for the services those clients provide, and see where their websites rank on Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and other search engines. Are the sites showing up on the first page with reasonable search terms? Are the sites functioning well with no dead links or lagging page loads? Are the sites regularly updated and attractive? Take the time to evaluate several sites from each of your potential developers, and get a feel for their style, thoroughness, and quality.
Once you’ve selected the right Boston ad agency to handle your web development, make sure that your new site is developed with an eye on Search Engine Optimization (SEO), including keyword-rich content that is frequently updated (preferably via blogging). Make sure that the language and images you choose will not appear “dated” in six to twelve months, but rather are not reliant on current sayings or trends. Keep your branding consistent between your print and online media, both in images and tone. And ensure that your site is properly coded for easy social media sharing.
