How to Choose the Best Drupal Agency for Your Website?

Drupal - The Content Management Systems You Must Try

Websites are just like online homes and offices and anyone, whether it is a business or an individual, who wants to sell anything and doesn’t have an online home/office (i.e. a website) would struggle to find success in this day and age. What is the first thing that you do when you want to find a new place to eat? You search Google for restaurants nearby and checkout websites of those restaurants before deciding where to go. Now, think about the chances of a restaurant which is great but has no website? What are the chances that you would go to that restaurant? 

Having a website for your business or your entrepreneurial venture or a non-profit organization or self-promotion is extremely important. It’s not just about having a website though. It has now become important to have a functional website which is user-friendly, has good content, is visually stunning and is search-engine friendly. Simply getting a domain name and building a normal website on your own or by using a theme won’t be enough. Even if the design turns out to be great, you would struggle with maintaining the website and in keeping it online if you won’t get professional services to handle the back-end technicalities. 

Drupal is, without a doubt, one of the best content management systems present in the world right now. With businesses, individuals and other organizations all preferring the management system, it would be a wise decision to get yourself a Drupal website. You can get an extremely stunning website with Drupal which isn’t just stylish and user-friendly but which is also easy to edit and is great for search-engine visibility. 

There is no way you can build a Drupal website on your own. While you can give it a try, if you are looking to attract visitors then hiring an award winning Drupal agency for the job is a must. There are a number of things to consider when choosing a Drupal agency to develop your website.

Experience in Drupal

Experience is of great importance in the field of web design and while new comers always add a fresh perspective, it is important to hire an experienced team which has a number of successful websites under its belt. So, when you search for a Drupal agency, make sure that their team has at least a couple of experienced individuals who have a proven track-record of delivering successful and high quality websites. It doesn’t matter if there are a couple of new Drupal designers in the team if there are a few experienced individuals present too. 

A good way to find this is to talk with the team leader before you strike a deal as an experienced bloke would have talked with clients for a long time and would know just what you need as soon as you would start talking. If you don’t get an immediate response that tells you that the developer has got what you need with your website then the experience may be lacking. 

Specialization in Drupal

Many agencies actually say that they are capable of Drupal websites even though they don’t really have any specializing in the platform. Many simply employ PHP developers and think that that would be enough to create a Drupal website. Such agencies may well build you a Drupal website but it would hardly match up to the quality of other Drupal websites. 

So, you should either hire a top web agency which exclusively develops Drupal websites or hire a design agency which has its own separate team of developers who specialize in:

Development of new and entirely customizable Drupal modules

Development of new and totally customizable API through PHP

Programming of JavaScript and PHP

Manipulation of content types as well as views

Availability

The problem faced by quality drupal developers is that they are always swamped with work and sometimes working on multiple projects affects their performance badly. This is why it is important that you never hire an agency which can promise the team’s entire concentration on your project and your project alone. You should be totally honest from the off about availability and should let the agency know that you want undivided attention on your project by at least part of the team if not the whole team. The top 10 drupal agencies take this problem into account and have a good number of Drupal developers in their team so that a few developers can give their undivided attention to one project at a time.
