One of the many frustrations San Diego SEO businesses face is cleaning up the damage caused by inexperienced and unprofessional web designers. Whether you have your own in-house web designing team or you’ve engaged an SEO company (or freelancers) for the purpose, here are 5 reasons why your web designer simply sucks.
From using the word “impossible” to the phrase “I can’t do this” or “this job is not meant for me”, a lousy web designer has a laundry list of lame excuses for not getting the job done. If you come across an amazing web design and ask your designer to come up with something similar, and he/she responds with a firm “No. It’s impossible!” then you need a new designer.
There may be a few logical reasons why your web designer is being a pessimist (e.g. budget limitations, site configuration issues, responsiveness or time constraints). Make sure to sit and discuss, in detail, the reasons why your designer is not honoring your request, before considering replacement.
Professional designers take extreme caution when updating a website. Even the slightest change can mess up the website really bad. This is why unprofessional designers often make their web designs almost impossible to update. A well-framed website is designed in such a way so as to survive all plug-ins and updates to the WordPress core. The owner should always be able to update his/her website.
Web design and development is not an easy task. It requires education, training and a lot of practice- along with a creative and alert mind. Because of the rigors and attention to detail involved, web designers don’t come cheap.
If you come across a web designer willing to provide a fully functioning and highly responsive website within $100, then it might be a good idea to look elsewhere for help. There’s always a risk that this web designer is not as experienced as others.
Ideally speaking, a web designer should know the code and have some knowledge of how websites function and the internet works. There’s no point in investing in a flashy and creative web design that takes several minutes to load.
While all businesses want and need professional and attractive web designs, they also want it to function well on all screens. This means that your designer should think beyond installing plug-ins to make your website work. The web designer should also be able to point out and explain why certain web features are likely to affect the loading time.
Many freelance web designers fear of losing customers and clients. As a result, they make their client websites almost impossible to upload. Consequently, the clients turn to web developers to do the trick. This means more repeat clients for the smart, yet unprofessional, designer.
A professional web designer will offer intensive web management training after the website is completed. He/she will also transfer complete administrator rights to the client and will be happy to assist in addressing any post-implementation queries and questions of the client.
