Choosing a Website Designer

Choosing a Website Designer

Choosing a Website Designer is as tough a task for the business owner as it is when it comes to buying a website.

The reliability of the website developer or agency being on hand to support your overall marketing strategy and not taking days to respond to requests will be important to you.

Can the developer demonstrate he is more than just a programmer or graphic designer?

Are they willing to work alongside an independent marketing company. 

When you interview your web developer or design agency, how will you know you are getting a search engine friendly website?

Finding evidence of performance figures for websites that the web designers have already built are also vital towards choosing an affordable web design agency.

So, how do you ensure you chose the right website designer and get a website that is both affordable and fit for purpose?
