Why Hire A Designer?
A lot of online business owners start with no money. They have to do
everything themselves -- the preparation of a product, the development of
a marketing strategy, the actual building of a website to cater to their
product's marketing needs. As their business expands over time, they will
find that their simple "homemade" site might not be enough to cover
everything, and they will have to take a day or two away to simply
dedicate that to the website expansion.
Sounds familiar? Chances are, you're someone who started everything with
no money too, so you're pretty skeptical when it comes to giving away your
money in exchange for something that you could have done yourself.
However, there is a lot more to hiring a designer than just finishing up a
job that you don't want to do.
When you hire a web designer to do your job for you, you are doing more
than just handing over the "dirty job" to someone else. In fact, by paying
a little money, you can let the designer worry about the little annoyances
that always evade the main picture and only come haunting when you're
halfway through the job. That way, you will be more focused and have more
time to spend on your actual business strategy.
On the other hand, the designers you hire a professionals so they are good
at what they do. By outsourcing your web design jobs to them, you won't
have to worry when problems surface because you can always get them to fix
it for you. Again, they will be able to pin point the problem and fix it
faster than you probably will be able to.
Also, the work you pay for will turn out more professional than what you
can achieve because the designers have been doing it longer than you have.
After all, they do it for a living so they have to be good!
So, remember to not just work your business, but grow your business too!
What can we do?
Nowadays, in this trendy world, people get very uptight when they do not
look entirely presentable. This would also be the case in web designing.
Every individual would definitely want their website to look good, if not,
to the best they can. Here are a few things we could look out for when
wanting to create a professional looking webpage.
Color Schemes and Themes.
When designing, always choose matching colors. An example of a matching
color would be to have a dark background, with visible words and designs.
With the dark theme, try not to mix too many bright colors into the
design. What we should NEVER do, is to mix two very different colors, such
as purple and yellow. Now, of course, it would depend on the purpose of
the website, but those two colors are too striking for one who wants it to
look more professional.
Themes must always suit the company or rather, the organization / etc. If
the website was made to cater for a food company, it would be wise to
stick to that particular category, rather than to revert to a different
theme, such as machinery.
Fonts should be used in regard to the formality of the website. A simple
sans-serif font would suffice in most cases. Exceptional cases such as
design and art groups might want to use fanciful designs and fonts. Of
course, thatís only if you know what youíre doing.
Finally, we must always try to think of our visitors, see the way they
see. The resolutions and file sizes of the pictures must not be too large
in terms of size. This is to allow maximum compatibility and cater our
So, planning is something we should always do, before attempting
