Deciding what you want from your website can be hard. Getting tangible results from your website can be even harder…
Sure, you could hire the best design team to design a beautiful website that looks great, but is it going to bring you in more profit - the reason you’re in business in the first place? When you’re running a business and reaching out to new customers online, you need to be sure that your website is going to give you the best return on investment.
So, how can you get the best from your designer, and total peace of mind that your website is going to do great things for your business? Here are 10 questions to ask your web designer - hopefully that will be us!
1. Do You Achieve Good Business Results?
Ask how the website designer has helped clients to achieve success online. This could be an increase in sales, or an increase in subscribers to a mailing list. Ask to see proof where possible.
2. How Much Do You Charge?
Whilst it might be tempting to choose the cheapest company, you might regret it in the long run. A good quality website designer will give you a fair charge, but also break down everything you are going to get for that price.
3. How Long Does Planning Take?
A lot of research and planning is involved before a website can be designed. We will sit down with our clients and ask them a lot of questions about their business so that we can build a really good design plan they will be happy with. Planning is everything, and so we set aside a few hours for this phase. It might sound like a lot, but it’s important to get your website right first time.
4. Will My Website Be Easy To Use?
Whether you want to ensure a good user experience, or you need to update your website yourself, ease of use is essential. When it comes to website design in West Lothian, we believe in building powerful and visually appealing websites that are easy to use, and which have a strong call to action.

5. How Is My Website Going To Help Me Achieve My Goals?

In addition to conversions, we look at ways to encourage repeat business and ways in which you can target other areas of your market - for example, through social media.
