Choosing A Web Designer
Choosing a web designer you haven't worked with before
is fraught with problems, not the least of which is the
fact that you don't know this person or how they operate.
Before choosing a web designer for you project, you
should ask them these questions and make sure you're happy
with the answers they give you -
websites have you built previously?
Can I speak
to 3 satisfied clients and would you let me see their
websites do you work on simultaneously?
Do you have
any guarantees, for example, guaranteed completion date,
guarantee of the finished product, a money back guarantee
if not completely satisfied, or anything similar?
When can you
start my project?
How long will
it take once you have all the details?
What is the
total of all charges and what extras can I be expected to
What are the
progress payments and how are they structured?
How much are
the ongoing charges?
Will I be able
to change the content of the site myself or will I have to
get you to do that every time?
How long will
I have to wait for you to change content if I need it
These are the bare minimum questions you should ask
before you choose a web designer to create your website.
