When looking for a website designer, make sure that you can go meet with them, in person, at their office.
When you meet with them, ask them questions to see if they understand your business, ensure that they are capable and able to communicate your message to the public.
Make sure the individual has a plan, and a timeline. Don't buy into the "we will just get it done".
Ask for the following:
1) How many hours they will be investing in total, and by week.
2) Which individuals will be working on your site, you don't want the work farmed out overseas.
3) Ask them how they will aggregate the appropriate content.
4) Ask them how much input you will have into the design.
5) Ask to see some templates, to start from.
6) Ask to talk to some local references in Oakville.
It is about getting found on Google first, some of the most beautiful websites are the best kept secret on the internet.
Your website designer in Oakville should be able to develop a stunning website, and put you on the first page of a Google search. Those two tasks are not related, and independent of each other.
Treat your relationship with your designer, as if you were buying a car, ask lots of questions. There are no dumb questions
Every designer should take as much time as needed to talk to you about their processes.
Creating a beautiful website is just the beginning.
You website designer should focus on getting your website on the first page of Google for the service you provide, first then work on the SEO. If your web designer does not have a proven track record of Search Engine Optimization, have someone else do it.
Once your website is on the first page, it still takes work to keep it there. SEO is an ongoing task.
Yes, it is simply hard work.
The most important thing to remember is that Optimization is not the same thing as design. Just like auto mechanics is nothing like auto body repair.
Getting to the first page is one thing, staying there is another.
