Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 1 What is the Scale of their competencies?
  • A companys website is the best promotional
    asset. Selecting the right website design partner
    that understands marketing is pivotal in this
    respect. A website design project to be
    successful, involves the efforts of not just web
    designers but marketing strategists, writers,
    photographers etc. It is always advisable to hire
    a company that has most of these capabilities and
    can provide the same on need basis.

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 2 Do they have similar industry experience?
  • This might not be a critical point, but if your
    company works in a specific industry, the
    learning curve required for the website design
    partner to adapt to your speed scale can be
    steep. Choosing the company with similar industry
    experience can have its advantages and can be
    beneficial for your website. However, if the
    design partner has experience in other industries
    as well that experience can come in handy when
    you need a resourceful and wider approach. 

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 3 How can they help in bringing in more traffic
    and leads?
  • Whether your business is B2B or B2C in nature,
    search engine traffic and lead generation are
    vital components of its design. You need your
    website to draw traffic and generate new leads
    for you. Hence, you must consider this factor
    throughout the design and development process.
    From strategy to content planning, to design and
    development and ultimately launch, all these are
    important and are helpful. 

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 4 How do you plan to optimize the website for
    search engines?
  • SEO or Search Engine Optimization has experienced
    extensive change since the past few years.
    Earlier it used to be a highly technical
    exercise however, now it has become much more
    about content marketing and planning and
    publishing content that the target audiences
    might be interested to search online. There are
    still certain best practices that must be
    implemented, which can contribute to your SEO
    strategies. Ask the company you decide to
    collaborate with, how they plan to approach SEO
    and strive to understand how your website can
    have the right content and the required technical
    expertise for optimization.

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 5 Do they follow responsive web design to
    ensure a consistent experience for the users?
  • Google recommends responsive web design and
    almost all of the top web development firms in
    the Middle East follow it. It is considered an
    industry best practice to build websites that are
    compatible on any smart device and offer an ideal
    user experience for all devices.

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 6 What aspects of the website will be worked
    in-house and outsourced?
  • While getting your website developed and
    designed, you need to understand what aspects of
    it will be worked on in-house and what aspects
    will be outsourced. Deciding to outsource certain
    aspects of your website design or development to
    a third party can add to the complexity, cost and
    collaboration to the project. If your partner
    plans to outsource certain portions, it is
    important that you ask who they will be using and
    what portions will be outsourced?

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 7 What is their teams web design and
    development process?
  • A companys process plays an important role in
    designing and developing a website. It varies
    from company to company as everyone has their own
    way of approaching project development.
    Understanding what the process is and how it will
    be implemented will ultimately affect your
    website and its future prospects.

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 8 Can they work according to our budget?
  • Companies might feel hesitant to reveal their
    budgetary estimates at the first go with a
    potential web development and design partner
    however, they need some kind of budget estimation
    to show you how they will be working on your
    project. It is important for you to understand
    how a potential web development partner will work
    on your budget.
  • Determining which company is fully equipped to
    handle your website and choosing whom do you want
    to finally go for, extends further than their
    expertise and capabilities. Asking relevant
    questions and seeking great answers is key to
    making a fine selection. 

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 9 Can design changes be added later?
  • A web site should never be considered "done."
    They're always evolving. If you're open to
    comments from friends and colleagues, you will
    routinely want to test, edit and change your
    website content. Make sure to hire a designer
    that knows this simple element for success.

Questions to Ask Your Potential Web Site Designer
  • 10 What do I need to supply you to get started?
  • Some designers will respond to this question in
    this way "Just send any pictures you want and a
    logo if you have one and they'll "take it from
    there." That approach is scary to me! The
    appropriate response should be something like
    this "I have an extensive questionnaire to go
    over with you which will help us to create a
    powerful Internet presentation strategy that will
    optimize your return on investment."
