Simple Yet Common Sense Steps to Outsourcing Your Web Design

By Carol Wright

There is nothing terribly hard about finding a web designer to make your site, but the novice marketer can be in for a rude awakening if he or she fails to prepare. We have helped lots of folks find outstanding designers for various projects, and here are a few things we have told them.

A lot of things have come and gone on the net such as Flash, but back in the day everybody had it. Flash is just not needed for the usual reasons people had it years ago, so generally speaking be wary if a designer tries to talk you into using it. The truth is, nobody likes flash today which is why most of the major companies are trying to avoid it on their website. Among a handful of other problems it creates for you and the search engine crawlers, there are many people out there who do not have the latest or fastest computers which will be a problem. Flash seems like it is meant to impress people and the site owner, and it does not impress people – so it tends to be limited in value. You can expect to put a down payment of some percentage, many go with 50%, with the final amount due needing to be taken care of when the product is delivered. Any deviations from that will just depend on the particulars of your project. You need to be very clear as far as the payment terms and conditions go because the slightest of misunderstanding can jeopardize your project and leave it hanging. This part here is all about business ethics and building solid relationships with other businesses.

So when you see this, and you probably will, then make your best call and move forward. Also, maybe you want to do those things for your self if you know how, or hire people who only do that and not a bunch of things. So just be careful that you do not get talked into doing something you are not totally comfortable with.

Last but not the least; having a proper design for your website is only the first step. You need to put in consistent action and a solid commitment to make sure that your website is not only designed well, but also performs well on all levels.
