Are you about to take the leap and invest in a custom beautiful website, or are you throwing in the towel on creating your own site? (There’s no shame in that, web design can definitely be a challenge!)
Finding a web designer can be overwhelming, there are so many of us out there! Here are the top FIVE things to look for when searching for a web designer:
Oftentimes, when business owners need a new website it’s because they have just launched their business, or because their business is going through a rebrand. I highly suggest finding a web designer who does both! Having a web designer do both will allow both your brand and your website to collide seamlessly.
Because what’s the point of having an amazing website if no one will be able to find it? SEO, or Search Engine Optimizing, isn’t something that we are all well versed in! This is something that you definitely want your web designer to be proficient in because you may not be able to do this on your own, and hey, that’s normal!
This is important simply because you may have a different style than some designers and if they tend to lean one way or another you will see it in their work! Find designers that previous work is similar to something to you are dreaming of! This way you know your vision for your website is in their wheelhouse.
There are so many different website hosting platforms out there, you may have a personal favorite, or one may benefit your business better than another. Such as Shopify if you are selling a product, or Square Space if you have a blog, etc. Do your research and find the hosting site that works best for you! Then find a designer who works specifically on that platform.
The last thing I suggest asking about is what else they offer, or better yet – what else they will add on for free! Branded social media templates + highlight covers, branded program mockups, even Canva account set up! These details are crucial when it comes to launching your site because you want your social channels to match your new beautiful website! I definitely recommend asking what other services your web designer offers to ensure you get the most of our site!
