What Is Professional Web Design?
Professional web design is really a combination of several disciplines, including graphic design, copywriting, computer programming, web server configuration, and search engine optimisation and internet marketing.
Professional website design means building websites that should:
- rank highly in Google
- entice people to click on the relevant search engine listing
- gain and hold the readers attention
- provide all relevant information
- convince the visitor to either get in touch with you or buy online
Why Use A Professional Web Design Company?
Using a professional web design company gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your website will be built by experienced specialists, based in the UK.
We Understand The Internet
Traditional marketing agencies and graphic design companies are now venturing into website design as their revenue from print marketing declines, though often without a solid understanding of the differences between designing for print and designing for the web.
Companies whose main experience lies in producing advertising campaigns for radio, newspapers and television will often just translate their traditional marketing ideas to the internet, treating websites like adverts. In practice, many people distrust adverts, so designing a website as an advert can be very counter-productive.
We Offer Better Service
Many freelance web designers offer website design services on a part-time basis, though there is no guarantee that they will be in a position to continue supporting your website into the future. Due to the part time nature of many freelancers, timescales and communication can sometimes be a problem.
We Offer Greater Security
More and more overseas web design companies in countries such as India and Russia are now competing for low-cost outsourced web projects, but should problems arise with your project there may be less comeback than with a UK-based web company. The lack of a common first language can also make it harder to ensure that both you and your web designers have a fully shared vision of your project.
We Make You Look Good
Cheap website creation software means it is now possible to throw together a basic website very quickly, though the software can make it difficult to edit and maintain your website. Some website software creates websites that might not display perfectly on non-standard web browsers, or on mobile phones and PDAs. Additionally, a very basic website, like a cheap business suit, might not give the impression you want to your customers.
We Are Great Value
Finally, particularly in the current financial climate, it can be tempting to delegate the company website to existing in-house IT staff, or to write off the company website completely as an unnecessary expense. But the internet represents probably the most significant emerging market for most industries, and internet marketing has a significantly higher return on investment (ROI) than most other forms of marketing, so cutting investment in this area might be a false economy.
It is worth noting that UK spending on professional web design and SEO services has been affected far less than spending on traditional advertising during the present difficult trading conditions.
Professional Web Designers
Even after you decide to use a professional web design company based in the UK, there is a great deal of choice. The dramatic growth in use of the internet over the last decade has triggered an equivalent rise in the number of UK companies selling website design services, with – as you would expect – significant variations in price and quality.
Since website design is an unregulated profession there are no specific academic qualifications required to set up in business as a professional website designer. Although many web designers do have qualifications in related fields (IT, programming, multimedia, graphic design), the majority of academic courses favour one aspect of web design over another. So your particular web designer may emphasise graphic design over sales copywriting, or web standards compliance over search engine optimisation.
