Website Design South Africa: How to Choose a Website Designer

Posted by robertwell on June 13th, 2013

If you run any sort of business then it is essential that you have a professional website. A website will act as a 24 hour sales brochure for the products and service that you offer. If you have no experience in web design then you will need to hire a web design team to create a functional and visually attractive site for you. This article takes a look at some of the things that you should take into consideration before you hire a web designer.




The location of the web designer  should not make any difference to who you choose to work with. If you live in South Africa then you can type in ‘web design South Africa’ into your search engine in order to find web design companies that are located in your country. However, they do not have to be located in the same country or even on the same continent. As long as you are able to communicate with them via email, Skype or phone then they can work on your project from anywhere in the world.




You should check what education and qualifications the designer has, and you can also ask them how long they have been working in the industry for.




You will want to make sure that the website designer is able to create a site in a style that you like. You can do this by checking out their portfolio of work. Most web designers should display the websites that they have designed and built for past customers on their own website.




It is also worth getting some client reviews on the web designer. You can do this by searching for independant reviews online, or by asking them if they have any testimonials.




The cost of the web designer will also affect who you choose to hire. Remember, you should never hire a designer based on how much they charge alone. Instead you should choose the person who you think will be able to build you the best possible website that is easy to navigate and that reflects your brand’s identity.
