Web design has become a growing interest in the United States for many years. Typically, programmers work in an office setting but often work out of the comfort of their own home. They offer everything from design, online consulting and e-commerce to online marketing, search optimization, and email marketing solutions. With that being said, one may wonder which company/person to trust and why. It is extremely important to check the company portfolio, which you can usually do by visiting their website. Make sure you click through their whole portfolio and not just ease through it. This can be a major mistake which many people have made in the past. One thing to look for is cleanliness; no one wants a website that is all cluttered and messy looking. Clear, crisp photos, as well as easy navigation is important when reviewing these business's. Being that these websites do not come cheap, you want to make sure you are getting your money's worth. A lot of companies out their hold you to a contract which is not necessarily a bad thing but, research before you make a commitment.
Pricing for designs and consulting may vary depending on the amount of content you are looking for. A small website consisting of 5 pages or fewer may run you about $1,000 or less but, if you choose to have a custom site built, that can cost you upwards of $6,000-7,000. A large portion of these companies will allow quarterly payments as opposed to paying all upfront. Most companies have a policy which the abide by. For example, many companies will give their clients the rights to the website and content in which the programmer designed. Taking your business to a company rather than an at-home programmer is what I would recommend. They tend to be faster, safer and more reliable. You don't want to be calling your designer all day and night asking to update content. With one call you should be able to describe what you need done and when. That's not to say at-home programmers don't do their job, because they do. It's just personal opinion and preference due to experience.
With the internet bigger than it ever was and social media only on the up rise, a website for your business is almost a sure way to gain exposure and ultimately boosts profits. Like anything else, it is an investment and a risk however, the reward can be larger than you ever imagined.
