Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Web Designer

Right now, you're probably interested in hiring someone to design a website for you. But not all web design companies are created equal. Here are some important questions that you should ask a website designer before you consider starting a project.
 

1. Do you have an office?

 

Some designers work from home, and possibly outsource your project to overseas web developers. Ideally, you would hire a firm that has an actual physical location, with in-house designers. This is a good sign that you're dealing with a credible business.

2. Can you show me results of your work?

 

Almost any web designer can build a site, but few will know how to properly promote it, or get you ranked well on search engines like Google.

 

Ask them to email you concrete examples of their clients ranking well for their target keywords. In other words, their clients should show up on the first page of Google for searches related to their product or service - not just searches for the name of that business.

3. Are there client comments and testimonials that I can read?

 

This is critical. A qualified and experienced design company should almost always receive positive comments from their clients. These testimonials should be made available to new potential clients, along with links to the actual work done (not just a generic comment with a partial name).

 

It's usually a bad sign if you visit a design company's website, and you can't find any positive comments from their clients. How do you know that they will really deliver?

4. Will I own the website after you design it?

 

Some design companies have fine print that states that if you stop paying them, they can take the site down. Make sure that the firm you hire gives you complete freedom to take full control of your site to do with as you please after it is online.

5. Can I see some working examples of your websites?

 

If you want to do business with a credible company, ask for samples. Don't settle for just pictures of websites that they claim to have developed. Ask to see a portfolio of websites that are still up and running, or for links to samples of their work.

6. What happens if I don't like the samples you design?

 

It's good to know what a designer will do if you simply aren't happy with the work done. Do they keep a deposit? Do they offer a refund? Will they offer to keep working on it, but charge you extra for revisions? Many web design companies make their money from new revisions that you ask for, only they don't mention this to you before the project starts.

In closing, what you really need to know is if the design firm you are talking to has concrete examples of getting the job done. You will want to hire a credible web design company, one with plenty of clients willing to say that they were happy with the work done. More importantly, you should know that they have experience in getting their clients to rank well on Google.
