Affordable custom website design that looks great, works even better, and gets found online! Now that’s worth talking about.
If you’re looking for a professionally designed User Experience (UX) website that promotes what’s best about your business online, and gets found in search results, then paying a professional to design and optimize it with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the best course of action. “Free” websites give little back in terms of results.
As noted in a previous blog “How much should a successful website cost?” hiring a qualified professional website designer with experience in design, development and strategy (not a Photoshop class student or blogger) will get the best results. A professional designer will discover what’s unique about your company and display it online as a custom design that fits your company. Due to recent advancements in technology, a professionally designed website that builds brands and finds business leads is now within reach for every business, big or small. This wasn’t true just 5 years ago.
Here’s a little history. Like many industries, web design fees dropped up to $25% during the great recession of 2007. And due to the ease of internet connectivity, overseas website design competition increased, driving costs down even further. But most importantly for designers like us, website back-end building technology took a huge step forward allowing skilled designers with knowledge of coding the ability to harness the back-end development and front-end design coding of a website. No longer was a designer required to work with a developer to create the website back-end with a user experience that was interactive and alive with animation. Now experienced designers, like us, can provide the complete package reducing the cost of custom website fees for businesses. Full-on web development built from scratch is still needed for many larger websites so experienced coders are still very much in demand.
