How to Choose Your Web Guy
(Page 1 of 3 )
The purpose of this article is by far not to say negative things about other web designers... or programmers, but instead to give website owners a few hints to help them find a designer that may better fit their needs. My hope in writing this article is to create savvier website consumers.
Many website owners are lost, confused and just plain “mystified” about the real purpose of a “web guy”, or web designer. The reason for this is because many designers are often too busy to promptly return emails or give encrypted answers to their client’s questions and concerns regarding their website design needs, its state, and generally what the client is going to gain from having a website.
A friend will suggest his webmaster: “My web designer is great, why don’t you give them a call? Tell them I sent you.” While this may sound like a wonderful idea, you should ensure yourself that your web designer will meet and exceed your “web needs”. You should use the same diligence you’d use if you had to find this person yourself.
So, here are several pointers that website owners should follow when choosing a web designer:
- Check references! Go to sites used as a reference by the web designer and email the owner. Ask questions and see if you get the similar, positive, feedback from the site’s owner.
