7 things to ask your web designer before you hire them.

 Posted by Manjula Kerai on January 21, 2021
  • How do you price your services?

Web design pricing can get a little tricky. After all, there are certain factors that influence how much it costs to build a website.

If you're looking for a web designer, ask them how they price their services. It's common for designers to give you a fixed price, like $3000 for a new website design. But that's not the only way to go. Ask them about pricing models like value-based, value-plus or performance-based.

  • How much experience do you have?

Over the past 5 years, there is no doubt that the web design industry has significantly changed. With the rise of freelancers and start-ups, companies are hiring designers with little to no experience.

What does experience mean and why should you care? Design comes naturally after years of design, so asking this question will help you decide whether or not you should go ahead with their services.

A compelling web design is what makes your online business stand out from the crowd. It’s the first thing people notice and gives them a good idea about how great your products or services are. If you’re looking for a web designer, it’s important to ask questions that will point you in the right direction.

  • What is your design process?

You want to be able to give feedback during the design process as if you are able to do this.

  • Do you work in-house or outsource your projects?

If the project is outsourced then you may experience communication delays or additional costs. Find out who they’re working with and what they’re working on to prevent any misunderstandings on both sides so that you can get the best website for outcomes.

  • Will the website be mobile responsive?

A responsive website is one of the most valuable tools that a business can use in order to provide their customers with quality service no matter what type of device they are using. The site will automatically adjust itself to the size of the screen that is being used by the customer, enabling easy access to all its functions, features and content.

  • Do you offer support and maintanence?

Having monthly website maintenance can ensure a good performing website, including page loading time and functionality. It also improves the 'user' experience builds trust and credibility, giving you peace of mind knowing that your website is always fully functioning.

  • Do I get full control of my website after it's built?

Time and time again, I have seen that despite business owners wanting full control of their business, one thing they don't have control over is their website. If you need to change web designers in the future that you want to be able to have a smooth transition. If your domain name is not registered in your own name but is in the web designers name, you may experience problems accessing the domain name, hence, lose your most important asset, the website name you chose.
