5 Things To Keep In Mind When Looking For A Web Designer
1. You can build a relationship with them.
Your business is your pride and joy. We understand that you want to put your best foot forward when you take the step towards your branding and design journey. A good relationship with your designer goes both ways. You should be able to give and take. Your designer should listen to your ideas and be excited to embark on this journey with you, but they should also be able to give ideas too. Bouncing around thoughts, and actions will only but get you the best outcome in this journey.
2. They have a diverse portfolio.
What better way to get to know your designer than by looking at their past work? An extensive yet high-quality portfolio will leave you with the confidence that your designer knows what’s up. You’ll be able to see their skills and how they adapt to diverse industries, and this will give you trust that they’re the right choice for you. You should feel confident in their abilities to turn your dreams into a reality- it is your journey, after all.
3. Which Content Management System (CMS) do they use?
It’s safe to say the decision around CMS can be daunting. There are so many systems available right now to create a website, but which one is right for you? Your designer should be able to point you in the right direction when it comes to your abilities and involvement with your website. They should take in your requirements and priorities and have extensive knowledge of which tools work best with you and your business. If you read our other blogs, we have a handy d-low on what we personally believe will best suit the majority of our customer base.
4. Does their expertise match your requirements?
One thing we recommend is coming in with a list of questions and expectations, that way; you don’t miss anything when it comes to asking the hard questions. Can your designer meet these requirements? It pays to ask up front first; that way, you’re on the same page right from the start.
5. Do they fit your budget?
Let’s talk money. Understandably, you have your “business brain” on when you’re looking for a designer so when choosing the perfect one for you, make sure they fit your budget. By analysing their capabilities and offerings, you’ll be able to see a breakdown when it comes to what services and functionalities you’re getting for your money. However, don’t forget that a good quality designer shouldn’t be cheap as chips. If they take pride in their top-quality work, their pricing should reflect their service and quality.
