Tips to Hiring Web Designers
Posted by LauraDerb on February 19th, 2021
You've got plenty of options when it comes to website design companies, so why go with us? As a small business owner, your site should operate for you. Since 2021, Star Websites has specialized in building sales-driven, custom websites for home service providers and professional contractors. Our team has years of experience building sites from scratch, for both small and large businesses, with the expertise to create a "wow" presence that brings in new customers and helps build brand loyalty.
There's no need to spend thousands on website design services. Building websites is one of the easiest things you can do and we can do it fast. The key is to get the most from our experiences and learn from what others have done before us. Building customer service websites requires a different approach than designing an in-house SEO page. Customer service and SEO are completely different animals.
Your website design services should be built around SEO, which means making sure your web pages to rank well for specific key phrases your target audience is using to find your site. For example, if your target audience is seeking repair services for vehicles, we'll work with you to develop pages that are search engine optimized for "vehicle repair." These pages would be similar to those we build for home service providers. However, if your target audience was looking for information about running a lawn care business, we wouldn't design our websites around search engine optimization for "mowing."
We use several different techniques to create unique websites that will help your company get noticed. For example, if you're an information product company, you could use how we build our informational websites to give your customers just the information they need. On the other hand, if you're a physical home service provider, you can use our physical websites to provide additional services, such as reminding your customers to schedule maintenance at certain Star Websites Support.
In contrast, in-house website design services require a large staff. Employees must be trained on how to make websites in-house. The costs can quickly become exorbitant, and if you have a strict budget, you won't be able to hire a large web design company. It's important to compare between the costs of in-house design versus hiring web designers.
Many companies expect too much from their website design services and end up with websites that simply don't meet their needs. The biggest mistake that companies make when hiring a web development company is expecting them to have all the skills necessary to create a visually arresting website. Web developers can't know everything. They must understand your company's brand, mission, and business goals. They should also understand your culture and business practices, as well. A good web development company understands that it is an ongoing relationship.
Another mistake that many companies make is choosing a web design or website development project without properly basing their needs on the current situation. For example, if your business has grown significantly, you may want to focus on your audience and make sure you stay competitive. A good web development company will understand this. Instead of hiring a web designer who is inexperienced with your industry or your target audience, hire someone who is skilled in the area of your industry but who also has a broad knowledge of other areas as well. Most experienced designers and developers understand not only which techniques are best for your target audience but also which types of websites are most appropriate for your situation. So, don't let your in-house web designers do the hiring; get them trained on your specific needs.
If you're not getting the results you expect from your web development team, get them together as a group to discuss the issues and come up with a plan of action. Give each of your designer's feedback on the plan - are they happy with it? Do they think it will achieve your goals? If you find that your designers are not aligned with your company's expectations, get them trained elsewhere - the sooner, the better. With good communication, everyone can stay on track and work towards a successful website design or web development project.
