Here at the Internet Business School, we’re committed to making sure your business stays ahead of the competition with the latest in Internet Marketing techniques. Having an up to date WordPress website is an essential way to keep your online traffic flowing. There are many designers and web design companies out there, but how do you choose which is right for you? Here are the top five questions to consider when you outsource WordPress website creation.

 

What is included in your website packages?

This is a no-brainer. You will want to know what you’ll get for the money you’re paying. If there’s any tech terminology you don’t understand, make sure to ask. When you approach a designer for website creation make sure you have a list of what you want out of your website so you can check and compare. Things you might want to check for include: aftercare, search engine optimisation and links to social media.

 

How do you calculate the cost of your websites? Do you charge by the hour or by the page?

Whilst it may not be the best idea to start off the discussion with finance, you should establish early on how much you will be paying and how often. Different designers charge their customers in different ways so make sure you know to see if the method suits you.

 

Can I edit the website myself?

It’s important to keep your web content up to date so you’ll need to know whether you can do this yourself, or if you have to keep paying the designer to do so. Ideally you’d be able to add and edit content yourself, giving you maximum flexibility over your own website.

 

Do you use templates for website designs or do you custom build them from scratch?

How unique do you want your website to be? Some designers use ‘out-the-box’ templates that can then be customised and altered. Others will build your website from scratch, presenting more opportunities for creativity. You have to consider the uniqueness of your site versus how soon you need it. A templated site may take less time to produce whilst a custom site will certainly be more unique to your business..

 

What do I have to supply?

Normally you will have the supply the content for your website, the designer will make a frame for you and then put that content in.  Make sure to ask exactly what they are expecting you to provide so you don’t end up with uncompleted website or delayed completion when you have to find everything they need.
