Toast was set up in 1997, and we’ve been working with clients throughout England on a huge range of projects, from microsites to large corporate sites.
If you’re finding it difficult to find the right WordPress Agency for your project, below are some handy points to note and questions to ask any agency before you commission a website project.
Website projects take time, so it’s important that a prospective agency has the staff to manage your project quickly. Freelancers and small studios are great for small one-off projects with limited budgets (if that’s you, get in touch and we’ll recommend some people).

At Toast we can. Our agency doesn’t take on jobs that we can’t complete in-house. We know what we’re great at, and we stick to that. In a competitive marketplace, it can be tempting for agencies to claim they do it all to win jobs. This can lead to delays, spiralling costs and a loss of love for the project.
Any agency you consider should:
The design is a crucial part of any website, but it takes in far more than just what the site looks like. The design stages of any project should also be about user experience, user journeys, information architecture and hierarchy. In our opinion, your potential web design agency should:
It’s very easy to rush into a website project and start designing things – after all, what it looks like is one of the exciting parts of any project; but don’t let your site be led only by design. You’ll end up with a website that looks nice but achieves nothing.
By far the best thing to do is to talk through your requirements with any prospective web design agency. On the phone, via skype or a face-to-face meeting. This way you’ll get a feel for their passion about what they do and a better understanding if there’s a good fit for the project.
The above is by no means an exhaustive list of everything, but it’s a guide to some of the things you should be aware of.
