Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need a new website?

 

The single quality that separates a good website from a great website is harmony: a website should be an organic extension of your company’s core vision, and should work to communicate your message to each potential client, every single time. If your website does not communicate your message, if it looks outdated and needs to be updated, or if it simply isn’t being integrated into Social Media channels, then your website is not in harmony. A rule of thumb: if you’ve been using the same site for the past 3+ years, it’s time to update.

Do I need a web designer to do the job?

 

Hiring a web designer is a choice that is dependent on the degree that you wish to change your website. You may have enough knowledge to edit your existing website’s content, but most people do not possess enough technical skill, time, or experience to manage a full-scale redesign. A web designer, or ideally a web design firm, is able to handle the entire project from concept to finished product, providing you with the end tools that you need to manage your website more efficiently.

How much does a website cost? How long will it take to finish?

 

Like any other project, the price and timetable vary depending on the needs of the client.
The major determinants are:
• The scope of the project
• The designer’s past experience and reliability
• The overall creativity of the designer
• The quality of the work provided
• The technology needed to complete the project
• The marketing services requested
In this way, an individual looking for a simple one-page website will obviously be charged far less than the larger company looking for an all-in-one corporate eCommerce solution. Also, a company that selects a designer based on price alone may get a low price, but sacrifices the designer’s quality, reliability, experience, and accountability in order to do so. For this reason, it is important to select the right designer for your needs.

How do I go about picking the right designer for me?

 

Choosing a web designer or design firm can be a difficult task, as the internet gives you access to thousands of these businesses, making it difficult to differentiate the candidates. If you do decide to interview for the project, it is important to evaluate each candidate for the following factors:

• The scope of the project
• The project’s estimated budget
• The overarching vision of the website
• The technologies used for the website
• The candidate’s portfolio of past work
• The candidate’s experience with similar jobs
• The candidate’s overall project accountability
• The candidate’s ability to adapt to problems
