Hello again! Today I will explain how to choose the right designer as I received several times questions on the subject of the right and thoughtful choice.
When it comes to finding a good web designer, you must understand that on your choice will depend if your Internet project fill have a success or a failure. Design is also an important factor in establishing the credibility of your resource. Well thought out design can play a crucial role in turning potential customers and regular visitors into revenue generating customers.
Before starting to search for designer, you should decide what you need. Focus on several factors that will help you to choose the best candidate.
What’s your budget?
You should start with budgeting not only for creation of your website, but also for its maintenance and SEO (search engine optimization). Understanding how much you want and can invest in the launch of the website will help you in the beginning. On the one hand, it will immediately weed out candidates that you cannot afford, on another – will allow you have the honest dialogue.
What type of platform do you want to use?
The platform on which you are creating the website is one of the main items of expenditure. If you expect yourself to do a full setup of the site, including the server part, your costs will increase significantly. With WordPress you will find a large selection of tools, from free to custom, but the platform is a little complicated on the stage of support the already running site.
How important is branding for you?
Creating style for your brand that includes a professionally made logo and individual design definitely will affect the final cost of your website. Some designers are developers at the same time, however, you should first look for a graphic designer who can create a style and strategy of promotion of your website, and only then a developer who will write code under conception approved. Graphic designer or company engaged in the design, will help you to come up with the logo, the overall style of the brand, as well as choose the right color scheme, images and fonts to be used not only on your website but also in other marketing materials.
What happens after the site creation?
When choosing a designer immediately stipulate the condition of maintaining the site and learning the necessary skills.
If you still feel the need to hire a designer and/or developer, explain from the beginning what you want to see as the result. When it comes to choosing the best designer for you, the ability to find common language can play a decisive role in the fate of your project.
The ability to think through in advance all from the budget to the platform, design and search engine optimization will help you to ask the right questions before designers. Be sure of your requirements, but also flexible enough and most importantly don’t forget your ultimate goal.
