We have put together a few things to consider when selecting the best website designer in 2020 to build your website.
It is always best to use a designer that is local. Why if you are based in Brighton would you use a website designer in Dundee? It does not make sense. Use someone that is local. A meeting face to face is always good. This way you can insure they are what they claim, and not someone in India using a .co.uk website domain. The best website designer in 2020 for you will only be found when you meet them and sit down with them.
How long have they been trading? Why use a designer that has only just started their business? By using an established designer, they will have more experience in creating the website for you. Equally using someone that has a development team to support them. How your website functions ‘under the bonnet’ is just as important as the design. Do they have any SEO experience? What about your SEO strategy, do they know how your new website is going to get visitors?
Creating a website is one thing, but you need that website to function for you. SEO goes hand in hand with design. The best website designer in 2020 for you will combine good SEO with functional design.
Have they created websites in your industry before? Have a look at their portfolio to get a feel for their industry experience. If they have designed lots of websites for florists, can they create a website for an accountancy firm?
Your website will have words on it. Are you doing the ‘copy’ or is the designer? Do they know what you want to communicate on each page? This all links in to their experience. Do they know the jargon terms you will want to use? Do they know the industry events you want to feature on your events page?
How does the designer compare price wise? Website design prices range from a few hundred pounds up to tens of thousands. How do you know you are paying a fair price and not being ripped off? Have you compared like for like? You want to get the best website possible, but you do not want to pay the maximum price for it.
Bearing in mind all website designers are privately owned companies that need to make a profit. How else do they afford to pay for their house, their holidays, the children school fees. Do you want to contribute to their income? This is why you need to shop around and compare quotes. We want to help you find the best website designer in 2020, just fill in the form for quotes.
