4 Easy Ways To Find The Right Web Designer For Your Project

Knowing that your business’s website needs some work is an important first step in building your brand. Whether you need to give your current site a facelift or are looking to develop a site from scratch, choosing the right professional for the job is essential. Unlike other industries, anyone can dub themselves a web designer, regardless of training or skills. That’s why you’ll want to be discerning as you begin your search. Here are some tips for finding a professional whose skills are a great fit for your design project:

Ask for referrals

If you’ve got friends, family members, or colleagues who’ve completed a design project recently, ask them about their designer. Are they happy with the final product? Would they recommend this person to you? Word of mouth is a great way to find someone to meet your business’s needs.

Check out websites you like

Another easy way to find a designer for your project is to identify a few websites you like. Even if they’re not in the same industry as your business, when you find sites that have the aesthetic you’re looking for, get the name of the person who built them. You can typically find the designer’s company name at the bottom of the site. If you don’t see the information there, you can contact the business directly and ask.

Utilize social media

You can also utilize your social media networks as you begin your search. Pose the question to your followers or utilize Facebook groups where design professionals might hang out. If you’re in community-specific groups (like Nextdoor or a Facebook group for your town) you can ask if any of the members of these groups have recommendations for you.

Ask the colleges or universities near you

If you’ve got a college or university nearby that offers a web design program, contact them and ask if any students might be looking to pick up some extra work. Most students would love to have more samples to add to their professional portfolio, and you may pay a lower rate if you partner with someone who’s still in school.
