Your website’s design has a 75% influence on your brand’s legitimacy and credibility. Meanwhile, 88% of consumers won’t return to a site after a bad user experience. An old, outdated website could break your business.
Before you risk losing customers, consider hiring a web design service. A professional website designer can set your website and business up for success.
Not every web designer will have the experience or expertise you need, though.
Here are six questions to ask before choosing a web design team. Asking these questions will help you find the right team for the job.
Start your search for an experienced web designer using these tips today.
1. How Long Have You Designed Websites?
First, determine how long each website designer has worked in the industry. Look for an experienced design team.
Their experience and expertise could indicate they’re capable of accomplishing your goals. Someone who lacks experience might struggle to provide the specific web design you need.
2. What Types of Business Do You Help?
Ask each web designer about the previous websites they worked on. Have they worked on a site for another business in your industry?
These designers might have an easier time understanding what consumers expect from your site.
3. What Services Do They Offer?
Ask each website designer about the services they offer. Make sure their web design services align with your needs and goals.
Website conversions can drop by 20% for every additional second of load time. Nearly 40% of people will stop engaging with a slow site.
Meanwhile, over half of eCommerce revenue is generated on mobile devices.
Look for a team that offers responsive web design services. Ask if they offer web support services, too. You might need help improving load times or developing an eCommerce site.
Ask about additional services they offer, too. For example, you might need copywriting or search engine optimization services.
It’s a great idea to look at all of the services offered so you can choose a design team based on the specific services you need.
4. Can I see Previous work?
Ask each web designer for examples of their work, reviews and references.
Look over example designs or actual designs that are live on the web. Most web designers will have a page dedicated to their past work.
In reviews, was the customer satisfied with the services they received? Did they experience any problems working with the designer? Choose someone with a strong reputation.
5. Can I See Your Past Websites?
Ask if you can have URLs to some of the websites the designer worked on in the past. Make sure their web design services meet your expectations.
Choose someone with the creative talents and abilities you’re searching for.
6. What’s Your Process?
Ask each designer about their work process. They should take the time to understand your needs and goals. They should research your customers and competitors, too. Otherwise, they might not create a site that benefits your business.
Ask The Right Questions
Don’t hire the first website designer you contact. Instead, make sure they offer the web design service you need. Ask these questions to vet your options and find the best web designer for the job.
