I’ve met many designers in my time as an internet marketer. I’ve steered them in most cases to get from them what I want, however.
I think it’s fair to say every now and then you come across someone that you want to take a step back from and say, “there you go, do what you got to do”.
That’s trust, trust in their abilities and their understanding; I’ve come to realise recently how important this can be in getting a fantastic web design and not just a mediocre web design. Also, it’s all in the method. I’ve been brought up in the school of SEO.
It’s fair to say that SEO has been changing for a while. However, at that time, it’s definitely impacted the way web designers do their designing. Don’t expect a print designer to sit down and design you a website and get it right the first time. They won’t. This is an entirely different medium.
Take, for example, the concept of the fold on screen – most print designers will probably try to keep everything on one page. Fair enough, this is what they are used to – but the scrolling public is used to a much more interactive layout. I think I read somewhere that about 90% of all internet users will scroll.
Once you’ve found a good web designer you want to stick to them like glue, you’ll probably also want to stick with a local web designer, so you go and bash them on the head a bit to get the type of work you want from them.
Also, you usually don’t give your secrets away in this game, but on this occasion, I want to share with you an absolute gem. So if you’re looking for web design in Blackpool, then look no further than Fan Boy Creative.
Sometimes I think I should, then I think: “you know what, my SEO and PPC management speaks for itself, I’m not going to try to pretend that I’m a web designer”.
If anyone there gets back and tells me to redesign, I may just consider it. However, as for now, I think I’m going to leave it as it is.
