Step 2: Choose your website designer
Now that you have a few options in mind, it’s time to choose the web designer who will create the website of your dreams. It should be noted that the most important thing is that you feel that your potential web designer is on the same wavelength as you and that he understands his objective and his brand image.

In addition to this, there are more objective factors that can help you choose. Here is the definitive checklist for choosing the best web designer for you.

The portfolio
To start filtering your pool of web designers (we know you have several options!), Start by looking at your portfolio. You will see the diversity of the talent of the person or company, as well as what it can do. If you need a transactional site, for example, check to see if this is one of the skills of a potential web designer. Tip: Don’t just look at the look of portfolio websites. Also note the speed, ease of navigation, and available features.

Testimonials and opinions
To get an idea of ​​the service and the result you will get, nothing better than consulting the testimonials and opinions of a company. Often, you will be able to find customer testimonials on the website. However, these testimonials were designed or chosen to appear on the website, so don’t just rely on them. See also the reviews on Google and Facebook. Take the time to read customer reviews to discover the strengths of different web designers.

Additional services
Having a website is good, but you still have to see it and generate sales. If the designer or web agency has web marketing skills, this is an advantage. Your new website is much more likely to be designed to be optimized for conversions and sales. Also, if you don’t need it now, you may need other additional services in the future. Here are some examples of interesting complementary services for your new website: Hosting, SEO, conversion optimization, advertising management, etc.

The price
Obviously, your budget is a very important aspect to consider when choosing your web designer! Often you will need to request a quote to get a fixed price for your project. To get a precise price, you will have to answer a few questions, and for our part, we also ask you for your quote for a very specific reason. If your budget is lower than the final price, we can guide you towards setting certain priorities to meet it. Very often, we also establish a step-by-step plan so that your initial budget is respected and that you can then pay for small extras, such as an online store or additional pages.
