It’s important to know how much our website should cost. There are different levels of quality that can be implemented on our website, but we should make sure that our website has proper overall design. In a nutshell, quality is often equal to higher costs. Skill and experience are two things that we need to consider, because web designers have varying degree of both. Quality is a very broad topic and depending on person, the level quality is often different. However, quality is often related to visual appeal, functionality and programming back-end. If we want to get quality work, we often need to check designer’s previous work.
We should spend enough time with the designer’s earlier work. It is a good idea to click through the webpages, to know whether we have an overall good experience in it. We should check whether the designer’s website performs equally well on PC and small mobile devices. If the website doesn’t work properly on mobile devices, it is possible that we will lose a lot of opportunities. We need to check whether similar issues are repeated across many websites. This will determine whether the designer is consistent enough. After we determine that the level of quality is acceptable, price is another factor that we should know. It is important to know that price is a touchy matter for both designer and owner. Price could become the primary factor of whether we should choose a web design. Price may vary significantly.
A small website with less than 10 pages and without heavy programming should be quite affordable. A highly qualified and large company may pay more than $10,000 for website development and design. Personal blogs for non-profit or professional purposes can be developed for less than $200. However, we should know that websites that require less than $1,000 to design and develop may look unpolished, but we should be able to quickly develop it. The back end and technology we choose could also affect the overall prices. Web designers may also validate our websites repeatedly, so it will be compatible with W3 standards. In this case, freelance web designers often have problem maintaining keeping level quality at higher level.
They may also be not trained well enough in keep their works at great quality. This may have significant impacts on many areas, including SEO. When assessing the quality of our website, we should also make sure that it has proper SEO performance. It’s essential for the quality of our website. Strong SEO marketing tactics are essential in making sure that we will have excellent sales results. No matter how basic our website is, it is important that it has a strong SEO foundation. As an example, the website should have SEO-friendly URL that contains major keywords of a specific page. It is also important to make sure that we have a simple navigation structure. This will make it much easier for search engine bots to scan our webpages. Bad structure could actually restrict bots and not all of our webpages will be indexed.
