A knowledge of the common mistakes when hiring a Web Designer will give you a walk through what you should pay attention to when hiring a Web Designer and also demystify the steps involved in hiring a web designer.
A lot of Web Designers think they have a monopoly of knowledge, key secrets, and talents used in designing a website, it is, however, funny that these acclaimed talented Web Designer tend to flummox clients with many techno-jargons by throwing around SEO, meta tags, analytics, and miscellaneous items at their clients and the clients are then left with no option than to smile and nod in satisfaction.
Clients, however, end up with a bad and unproductive website even after paying a fortune for it. Finding and choosing a Web Designer that can accurately design a website that will yield results can be a frustrating and confusing process for many people. People end up making wrong choices and in the long run, they are left with a bad website because they ended up hiring an unqualified vendor.
This post will help identify some of the common mistakes to avoid when hiring a Web Designer. These common mistakes are:
Spending too LITTLE for a great Website:
This is very common among people intending to hire a Web Designer especially if it is for the first time. They often mistake a website for a regular day to day item used in business activities such as business cards, safety pins and so on. The result of this false comparison is that it creates a mental picture that a great website should always be cheap, fast and easy to get and the truth of the matter is that “cheap” always eventually cost most and yields fewer or no result.
Another consequence of spending too little for a great website is that it creates room for a recommendation from family members, friends and colleagues about Web Designers (who everybody says is good at his/her work) that can do the job at a cheap rate or even for free. It is necessary to realize quickly that if you are to use these recommended Web Designers, whatever impression you will be creating to your customers will be in the hands of these Web
Designers who most of the time do not know anything. Another case is with people that make use of cheap or free online website builders when trying to see that they spend too little for a great Website. An example of a website builder is Godaddy’s Website Builder which is free at first or Wix where you can drag and drop your website into existence. These website builders do not work for real businesses and you will only suck your time into months of work and what you will be left with is a cheap time-sucking website for all your work. It is therefore important to avoid spending too little if you want to get a great website.
