Many business owners these days do not realize the importance of hiring a professional web and graphic designer. Some think they can do it themselves, other know a guy who knows a guy that does it on the side. Well here are some reasons why it may be a good idea to hire a professional.
- Quality of design and user experience
When running a successful business, image is as important as whatever you are trying to sell. Professional designers can create cohesive branding (logo, business cards, website, promotional material) for your company. More important is how your customers will use these branding tools. Professional designers are well versed in the many ways people use their products and they design accordingly. Example: Navigation bars/links on a website. This is probably the most important aspect of your website and if a user cannot find the information they are searching for, well that is a potentially lost customer.
Search Engine Optimization. This is a tricky science. Without optimizing for search engines like Google your website will just get lost in all the other millions of website out there.
- Cross Compatibiliy
With so many ways to access the internet, it is important for your website to work in Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome as well as on any mobile device (iphone, ipad, android tablet). This does not happen automatically when developing a website. Professional web designers know how to make this happen and more importantly, know how to fix a problem if your site does not operate in one the internet programs or mobile devices.
A website that can grow as your company grows saves money and time. A professional can design your site in a way that makes it easy to add/subtract pages and information without having to build an entirely new website once your business takes off.
It is so easy these days just to search for “web designer” on the internet and find someone in who-knows-where to design your company’s graphics and website, but dealing with someone local has added benefits. You can meet in person to brainstorm and go over ideas. Just knowing that your company is in the hands of a competent professional creates a trusting relationship that can grow with your company.
