5 Smart Questions to Ask Your Calgary Web Designer

With a seemingly endless choice of web design companies, it’s not easy to compre providers and choose the right website designer for your business needs. That’s why it’s so important to build a relationship and open line of communication with your designer from the outset as this will ensure your project will be set up for success.

To be confident that a website designer will deliver a website that looks great, works the way it should, and represents your business in a professional way, here are 5 smart questions you should ask any designer before you hire them:

1. Can I See Examples of Your Work?

Before you work with any website designer, make sure you ask to see some examples of the websites they’ve created in the past. Make sure that you are satisfied with this, as it’s likely your new website will be similar in style to what they are proficient in creating.

Take this to the next level: Ask if you can contact a few of their clients so that you can determine if they were happy with the process and the end result, and to find out how long the project took.

2. What Happens If I Don’t Like the Initial Design?

It’s important to know how many rounds of changes you will be allowed to make in your scheduled fee. Some companies may offer unlimited changes until you are satisfied, while others will require additional payment if you don’t accept one of the first few rounds of designs.

Before you begin, have your designer outline the creative process so you can be sure you’ll be happy with:

  • The end design
  • Any images
  • The proposed colours and fonts

Ideally, you should have a very good idea of what the end result will look like before production begins. Many companies have multiple sign-offs, which help keep your project in scope.

3. What About Content?

Most people become so focused on the design of their website that they completely forget about the content until later. This can be a very costly mistake! A successful website is one that communicates its content effectively. Good content will:

  • Provide your customers with the information they want
  • Convert website visitors into clients
  • Be optimised for search engine results

Content creation is key to ranking well on Google and establishing a strong case of capability with your clients. At Stylelabs, our online tools and research methodology empower us to write on your behalf and position your organization as a key opinion leader to your customers and ranking authority to search engines.

4. How Long Will It Take To Build and Launch The Website?

Every project requires a realistic turnaround time. Based on the agreed specifications, your website designer will be able to tell you how long your project will take. Make sure you know what will be expected of you during the process, so you can respond quickly to any decisions that need to be made.

In addition, make sure to discuss what happens if completion of the project is taking longer than what was initially discussed.

5. How Do You Ensure a Consistent and Usable Experience on All Devices?

Responsive web design is the Google-recommended best practice for building a website that isn’t just mobile friendly, but optimized to create a consistent and ideal user-experience for all devices. Understanding how each firm approaches mobile users and responsible web design throughout the process is important to ensure the success of your project.
