1. What does a web designer do?
A website designer (or sometimes referred to as a web developer) manages the process of building a website from start to finish. They usually have a mix of skills from creative to technical and if they are freelance then they will generally have client facing skills as well.
Web designers trained in the design process will follow the process to build a website. This includes;
- discussing with a client their outcome for having a website (or for changing their current website)
- organising the content into pages and creating a navigation structure, normally called a site map
- assess whether the client will benefit from using a CMS like WordPress
- creating a designed layout(s) or design concepts
- converting the layout into HTML/CSS code
- testing the website
- make the website live
2. What is a Web development company?
A web development company will employ lots of website designers and developers so they can scale up the number of customers they have. Depending on your priorities you might find a web development company will work out for you. If however you like a more personal service and would prefer someone who can be more flexible in their approach then a freelance web developer might suit you better.
3. How do I hire a web designer?
Firstly you should think about if you actually need to hire a web designer. If you are a new company just starting out your budget for a website might not be much. You might find that you can get away with using a cheap website building service from companies like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace or GoDaddy. They'll offer pre-made templates that you can select to add your website content to.
On the other hand if your budget allows and you are ready to move on from having a Wix website, hiring a website designer is the next logical step. Do some research on Google for local companies or ask friends for recommendations then get in contact with the web designer and discuss through with them your requirements for a website and the goals you would like to achieve from having a website designed and developed.
4. How much should I pay someone to make a website?
Generally there are two sets of costs, fixed costs such as website hosting, domain names etc and variable costs. The costs to hire someone to design a website all depend on the specific requirements you have for a website. This will determine the amount of time required to build your website. Most professional website designers and developers will discuss through with you your goals for having a website then quote one price to build the website. Hourly rates are normally used after the website is live for changes / additions to the website.
5. Is Web Dev hard?
I take the view that anyone can learn anything. So in that context no, website development isn't hard. If you are running your own business and are thinking about building your own website yourself, assess whether you have the time to learn the necessary skills and knowledge to be able to build your own website. Your time will probably be more effective in running your business rather than learning a new skill.
6. Which Web technology is best?
7. Should I put pricing on my website?
A lot of clients ask if they should publish their pricing information on their website. Whether you should do this or not really depends on what your business is selling. If it's physical products that you are looking to sell online then having pricing information published will help potential purchasers of your product decide if they want to buy or not.
If your business is offering a service then you might want to put indicative pricing on your website to give potential customers an idea of costs, then provide specific pricing depending on what each client needs.
8. How can I design my own website?
If you have decided that you can devote the time into designing your own website, then the cheapest and quickest way to design your own website is to use the off-the-shelf services provided by website building services from companies like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace or GoDaddy. You might find however that they are limiting in the layouts they provide or functionality. If this is the case you should probably look at hiring a website designer or developer to build your website for you.
9. Which framework is best for web design?
Web frameworks are technologies that allow the rapid creation of websites. The best web framework for web design is WordPress as it allows the rapid creation of websites tailored to each individual projects needs.
10. Is SEO worth the money?
Whether or not SEO is worth the money depends on what outcome you want from an SEO service. You may want more immediate sales from your website, or you might want to increase your organic rankings. Costs for SEO services vary depending on your outcomes but it can be an effective way to reach your goals for your website.
11. Can I do SEO on my own?
Basic SEO can be done on your own, such as creating your page title and meta tags. For more advanced SEO you will want to hire someone skilled in those techniques or decide if you can devote the time and effort into gaining the required knowledge in implement SEO on your own.
12. Is WordPress better than Wix?
Wix (and similar services from Weebly, Squarespace and GoDaddy) are website design platforms developed to make the process of building a website easier. Depending on your website project goals they may be a good fit however you may find their services can be limiting in what they offer and that the process of using them takes up too much of your time. WordPress offers much more flexibility and has thousands of themes and templates on offer. WordPress can also have functionality like eCommerce added to it.
13. Is Wordpress better than Wix for SEO?
WordPress is better than Wix for SEO in that is has more flexibility when building websites with advanced SEO techniques. WordPress also allows additional functionality to be added to make the process of SEO a lot easier and quicker.
