Hiring a Web Designer for your business is a critical task, as a Web Designer is a key person for meeting the project’s objectives and goals. As we have a number of designers in the market, and each of them promising the best results, it becomes more difficult in deciding what is best for us. This guide will help you to avoid the common mistakes that people make while hiring a web designer.
- Not knowing what you’re looking for
As it is said that ‘the first impression is the last impression’, and so in the first meeting with the designer, there is an opportunity for you to know about the business in order to fulfill the requirements. You need to gather all of the detailed specifications, plans, materials, and goals that you would like to achieve from a website, before consulting a company or a web designer. Thus, giving scope to a designer as what he/she needs to incorporate in the website. For eg: if you are looking in generating a lead from the website, then tell the web designer to focus on creating the website on this goal.
- Paying too little
It is the universal truth that ‘pay for what you want’. Based on this principle we choose what’s best for us. So, for choosing the best web designer do the same by paying the right amount for the task. Rather than feeling guilty in the end for poor and an unprofessional website design which does not meet the business purpose, just because of paying them less, why not go for paying more for the best output? Thus, spending a decent amount on high-quality professional design will be more beneficial.
- Not having an SEO strategy
There is no point in having a website if there is no one who can find it. So, it is important to have some knowledge about SEO. A good designer will always implement the SEO features on the website. So, if you want to be found online, SEO is the only feature which will be beneficial for you as well as in building a website.
- Not checking portfolio and testimonials
Before discussion and meeting go through the portfolio and the testimonials which are briefly described on their website. Check their work and verify whether the work is done properly or not? Ask for references for good reasons to trust them.
- Not having your own domain
The most important part of a website is having your own domain. You can get your domain name and can have full access to it in a very less time. All the efforts you make to drive traffic to your website will be attached to the domain name.
- Hidden fees
Many of website designers will attract you through their rates and at the end surprising you by adding additional fees. The best way to avoid this hazard is to be very clear about the requirements and putting them into the contract for the exact amount to be paid. Feel free to ask whether there are any additional fees. It’s difficult to find an honest, professional company who is not only delivering high-quality website but also open about the fees structure.
