The website developers that you might be considering to hire might be giving you cheap deals online (unbelievable prices like 300$ for the entire website), but beware of old and outdated technology being used. The cost of redeveloping and redesigning might cost heavy on your pockets once you realise that the website is not running efficiently on the latest operating systems.
Not having CMS
CMS or Content Management System gives you complete control over your website. You can access it anytime from anywhere if your web designer works with a CMS. Without CMS, urgent updates or changes to be made to the website will be entirely dependent on the web designer’s availability. It becomes scary to think that you can’t bring even minor changes in your website content if you are not working with CMS. Latest CSS and HTML versions should be used.
Poor SEO and Social Media strategies
Overall, the ultimate aim of your website should be to convert visitors into prospective buyers. If your web design company does not rely on SEO friendly techniques, it will be a failure. Social media plays a huge part in marketing a business these days. A web design company should engage interesting and attractive social media content in their website development techniques to ensure maximum traffic.
Your website should be designed in such a way that it grows your business and brings in good revenues. Choose a good web design company wisely to create an impressive business website.
