Frequently Asked Question

Q: How can I decide a Web Designer?

A: Spend a while over Skype or phone with your designer. When you're talking, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do they have a proper process for designing or they're just going with the flow?
  • Are the photos and images used by them in color and in focus?
  • How does their web design look like? Original or template?
  • Do you have access to the designer's portfolio or client list?
  • Do they come up in Google if you enter a search: ex – Maine Website Design – are they TOP TEN in Google?

Q: What's the need of hiring a Pro Website Designer?

A: We all know people getting designs from a person who take it as a hobby results to be repetitive and poor. It's not just waste of money, but time as well. One cannot afford their online presence to be so bad. They do not try to bring as much change in their style since they are not pro.

Let's say you hire your nephew or an employee's relative who "creates websites in her spare time". The Result: Your website does not have the professional look that shows in your other marketing campaign so the first impression could be negative. Your site might be hard for website visitors to navigate, the pages might take too long to load, or it could be just… plain boring, causing people to leave your website without contacting you.

Websites require the first impression to be best, because visitors take their business seriously and decide whether to take it to your competitor or not. Web Design requires an immense amount of knowledge in page layout and graphic designing for the internet. It's a unique design medium, and only gives window of 4 seconds to grab visitor's attention. The visual nature of the internet makes or breaks a business. You fail to grab attention in provided window, you lose your client!
