If you are trying to find a web designer for your small business, be aware that there is a lot more to think about than just making sure your site looks nice.
A professional looking site is, of course, important. But there are a lot of designers out there that are absolutely fantastic at making a site look good.
However, unfortunately they do not know how best to set up a website to maximize conversions.
They also don’t know to make sure that search engines such as Google know what your site is about.
And if Google doesn’t know what your site is about, they will not be able to match you up with your potential customers.
Below we have an infographic which takes you through ten things that you can discuss with any third party that may be helping you with the design of your website.
If you avoid these ten small business web design problems then you give yourself a fighting chance of success in your online endeavors.
Use it to quiz candidates on how they will approach each of these points.
And if they can answer knowledgeably on each of the subjects there is a much better chance you are dealing with a good designer.
If you really like to do your homework before you spend your money, ask to see their previous work.
Then run those sites through the five tests which are listed in the infographic.
The proof is in the pudding after all! 😉
