The Differences in Web Designers
Honestly, there are so many people who call themselves "web
designers" simply because the field of web design is a
totally unregulated profession. It can be difficult to
determine if someone is just a good "sales person" or if
they really are a good professional web designer.
Are web designers really that different?
How do I know if they are a good web designer?One way to help you make a decision whether they are a good web designer is by viewing a LOT of examples of their work, and a LOT of client feedback and testimonials.
Don't just take their word for it that they are the greatest! I've met many people who unknowingly wasted years of valuable marketing time and a lot of money just because their poorly-designed, under-optimized website was doing them no good and losing potential business.
What about ...
Can I use a premade web template?Yes, maybe you can. . . but do you really have time to try to figure out how to use a template, and struggle with the limitations of using a premade template? And, very importantly, do you know how to optimize it well enough for the search engines to find your website?
Can my nephew or a friend make my website?
But is someone who only sort of knows how to make a
website the right person to create the most valuable
marketing tool for your business? Do they have the life
experience to know what a comprehensive overview or your
business should be in your web presence?
Professional full-time web designerDo you want to trust someone who only "does websites on the side" whenever they can snag a web client or have the experienced full-time web designer working for your business?
Who is the web designer you're considering?
Do you want to work with an anonymous web designer who
doesn't even put their name on their website? Wouldnt you
rather be able to sit down face-to-face, and know they are
established, mature, reliable and stable. Is the web designer
even in the
USA? Do you want to risk
working with a web designer who isn't even in this country?
Can I get a cheaper website?
Yes, but does it sound realistic that a 5 page website for $99 could be a GOOD/EFFECTIVE website? Find out if the potential web designer is going to sub-contract out your project so you can check the sub-contractor's work and reputation There's a lot more to creating a good website for you than the look of it. If it's not properly optimized, it's not going to be found!
You need a website that is professional looking and one that will "work" for you!
You want your website to look professionally designed?
You want your website to be a custom fit to your services or products?
You want your website to be found on the internet?
You want your website to function properly without any bugs?
What to Look for in a Web Designer
It is important to work with someone you feel comfortable communicating with, because designing your website needs to be a collaborative effort. No one wants a web designer who talks down to them, acts temperamental, disappears for long periods of time, and takes FOREVER to finish a website!!
Web Designer or So-Called "Full Service" Company?
are a lot of "web optimizing" companies, (and computer
repair guys) who "claim" to offer web design, but generally, they are
not web designers and often sub-contracting out pieces of
your website to various sources that you'll never even know
about. That can be very detrimental to you getting a good
cohesive and functional
website. Many like that will throw together an
un-optimized website, then charge you monthly to "keep you
up in the search engines". If your website is made
correctly... you won't need to pay extra fees to anyone.
