If you have been on the lookout for a web design service that can help you to design your business website, then you’re in the right place! No matter who you hire to design a corporate site for you, it is important that certain points are addressed by their design. Today I want to talk a little bit about what those points are.
What You Should Expect From Your Web Design Service
When you are looking at hiring a professional web designer to redesign or create a design for your business website, always look at their references. A solid designer will have no problem providing you with more than a few references to back up their portfolio. If, however, a designer is reluctant to provide you with any references, drop them like a hot potato and find another option!
2. A Solid Portfolio
Beware the web design service who cannot or will not provide you with a portfolio of their work. Every designer knows that what sells them as a designer is a GREAT portfolio. If your designer does not have a portfolio to offer, you don’t necessarily have to run the other way, but you do have to see their caliber of work prior to paying them ANYTHING.
3. Search Engine Optimization
A professional web designer understands that part of their job is to optimize your website for search engines as they design. This is a crucial key to the success of your site design so if your designer tells you that they don’t “do that”, it’s time to question their credentials. Your web designer doesn’t have to be a search engine guru, but they should know how to create a tidy site that is readable by search engines and has the basic search engine necessities completed.
No, I’m not talking about the designer themselves (whether or not you want a suit and tie guy is up to you!) but I’m talking about the quality of their portfolio of designs. Do their website designs look professional or does it look as though they’ve just thrown together a few quick websites for friends? Remember, the site you have designed is going to represent your business and the last thing you want to do is give the appearance of an amateur!
