What Information Should You Have?
We are keenly aware that this process can be very intimidating for people who
may be unfamiliar with the process of creating a website.
While it is not necessary to understand computers or be knowledgeable about the
Internet in order to have a website, there are some basics that
you might want to know regarding web design. This can not only help you
choose an effective web designer, but help you know what questions to ask
the designer you choose.
Choosing A Web Designer
Web Design is a complex topic, but knowing the style, habits and
knowledge-base of the designer you choose is a good step to ensuring great
website results! Here are a few questions to ask the designer you are considering:
- Does the designer rely completely on an HTML Editor for his/her web
An HTML editor can be a useful tool in website design but their use
is limited. Choosing a designer who is highly proficient in custom HTML
applications will ensure you that the designer is capable of producing
a high quality website.
- Does the designer optimize the web graphics used on your site
Graphics (images) on your website can give the site style and flair and
can also be informative. However, graphics in raw form can also be
massive in file size and can cause your page to load extremely slow.
A slow-loading page alienates visitors. Most will simply move on
to another website. ALL images used on your site should be optimized to
ensure a quick loading site.
- Does the designer test your site using BOTH Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer?
All browsers are NOT alike. Your website may look fantastic when viewed
with Explorer but look like dog-doo when viewed with Firefox (or vice-versa)!
Firefox and Internet Explorer are the two most popular browsers on the web today.
Choose a designer that tests your site for compatibility with BOTH browsers.
- Please change your clothes before viewing this website!
What do you suppose your response would be if you came upon a website
that made such a request!? It may come as a surprise, but many web designers
ask visitors to do just that! Asking visitors to change their
screen resolutions, download plug-ins, change their font sizes, etc., to
view a website is not only ridiculous but it's just plain BAD WEB
ETIQUETTE! Need I say more? Be assured that a website making unreasonable
demands on it's visitors will be left in the dust! Choose a designer
that creates pages that are viewer friendly!
