How can you be sure of choosing the right web designer for your needs?
So... How do I choose the right web designer?
It’s important to remember that not every web designer or web design agency is the same. Some may have limited experience in the industry but can produce a nice looking WordPress site; some may have excellent technical skills in specific coding languages such as PHP; some may be very experienced in website architecture, page structure and UX (User Experience)
There are some businesses whose core business may be to do other things like design logos, or print business cards and stationary, but as a sideline may also offer to build your website too. Does this make them experienced and dedicated enough to build and manage your website to the level you expect?
Whatever their level of skills, knowledge or experience, one of the most important aspects of selecting a web designer is to find one with good communication skills, who seeks to understand your business or goals, and can provide the solution you need.
You are also going to need ongoing support, and maybe someone to handle SEO, Google Ads and Google Analytics, besides development and general maintenance of your website.
So if you can find someone through recommendation, or have a chat with them to get a sense of what they might be like to work with, that would be a good starting point.
If you find the conversation difficult and come away feeling uncomfortable because you haven't understood half of what has been said, try someone else!
