Designing and putting a website online is not a big task today. We have several simple drags and drop website builders that can do the job for you. With access to such open source software, many started to introduce themselves as web designers. Hiring such an individual will not benefit you in any way. Web designing required good level of skill, and there professionals can build perfect websites from scratch with perfection. However, avoiding the amateur will need you to dig a bit deeper, and here are some easy ways to look for to understand bad designers.
- Weak or no portfolio: Portfolio is the one thing web designers use to get new clients. The no-professional designers will have a fragile collection, or in some cases, they won’t even have one. Quality consideration should be done more over quantity when analysing their previous works.
- Lack of structured pricing: The one thing a weak designer will have a non-structures price structure. Professionals know they will not have to do something for free when they are good at it, and they will have structured pricing. If the designer you choose is ready to negotiate and give dynamic pricing, you should probably avoid that individual.
- Won’t share client details: Designers who are confident in their projects will be open to sharing few client details with you. But amateurs will give plenty of reasons, including privacy concerns when you ask for client details.
- A weak website: This is something which sounds foolish, but is a real thing. There are web designing professionals who don’t even have a perfect error-free site for themselves.
