Tips for Finding Affordable Website Design Services

By Angela Wills

So you’re ready to have your website designed and you’re looking for affordable website design services that also deliver quality at a reasonable pace.

Tough order!

You see, there is a fine balance between finding someone who does quality work and offers amazing customer service. It’s a rare case that you’ll find someone who’s amazing at their work and amazing at relating to the customer. So it’s important to know what you are on the lookout for so you see it when you find it.

Here are some key points to remember when looking for website design services:

1. Know what you want: Before you hire anyone to design your website you must know what you want and what you need. There is no point going to someone and telling them to build you a website that makes money. You must have a purpose and goal for your website before the design stage, it just won’t work out any other way.

2. Find out what is available: There are many website designers out there. The first thing you must do after you know your website’s purpose is figure out what kind of website you want to build. Will you build an ecommerce site purely for physical products? Will you build an ecommerce site purely for digital products? Will you build a website to promote your speaker services and get companies to call you for keynotes? Will you build a website offering your coaching services? All of these sites have different purposes and may be designed in entirely different ways. Figure out what kind of site you want, then do your research to find out the options to building it is. You’ll be WAY ahead of the game if you do this and you’ll dramatically cut your searching and design costs because you’ll know exactly what you need (saving your designer the billable time of trying to help you figure it out).

3. Create your content: Unless you plan on hiring a copywriter then it’s a very good idea to plan out your website content before you go to a designer. Then you can hand it over and have it all added. This will save you cash because if you hand over content piecemeal you’ll be paying for updates every single time instead of all at once. Even if you do decide to hire a copywriter you’ll need to plan out what pages you need so this is something to be done ahead of time so you can go to the designer with a really good image of what you need.

If you follow these three tips you should have no problem finding yourself a website design service that is awesome.

I’ll tell you a little secret: Most of the cost associated with website design is the time it takes the designer to figure out what you need and want in a website. If you figure it out first you can pop that over to a smart designer and get your website done much more quickly.

Or, you can cut out the middle man and learn to create a professional quality website yourself. Who knows better than YOU what your website should look and feel like?
