Tip For Hiring a Web Designer
Don’t Hire a Web Designer Who is Not a Legitimate Business
Don’t hire a web designer who is not a legitimate business unless you only need a hobby website. The troubles you will have over the long run will make it more expensive and a waste of valuable time. In this business climate you cannot afford to lose money, time and reputation and that’s what I see happening to many businesses on a weekly basis.
The web and SEO industry is fraught with fraud because there is no licencing, certifications or any kind of training needed to go out and sell. That means everyone and their grandmother is a web designer. That makes this industry have a really bad reputation. So we see many people buying from their friends, family, neighbors kid, etc. That’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to your business. Would you take legal advice from a hobbyist who watched legal videos on YouTube? What about medical advice from your neighbor’s kid who’s only qualification is that she’s never had the flu.
I see the damage it does over many areas. Most people think that they really didn’t lose much because they didn’t pay out all that much. But a business that doesn’t show up in the search engines looses market share (cash, sales, opportunities), it looses reputation and brand because know one knows you’re out there. It looses valuable time because you have t make up for not getting found in other ways and usually that costs money. And if you do get found what is that first impression on a non functional mediocre looking website? Basically you are helping your competition get stronger and that’s a bad business model.
Make sure the person you are hiring is a legitimate business that specializes in Web Design and not serving coffee at the local cafe. Make sure they have experience, demos, testimonials, a good reputation and quality website of their own. Look around to other web designers that some of your business friends have used and interview them. Doing a little homework will save you a lot of money in the end, but more importantly it will make you a lot of money as well!
