Are you working with a website designer?

Friday, January 13th, 2023

Does paying for and watching Netflix make you a TV producer?

Does downloading an app on your phone make you an app developer?

Does installing a WordPress website or using a 3rd party builder make someone a website designer?

The answer to all of the above questions is pretty clearly a no, yet we often see people call themselves website designers with no actual qualifications. Installing software does not make you a website designer or developer, so if your website designer does not know how to code that’s a huge red flag.

From coding to interface design to navigation a well-designed website goes far beyond looking nice on the visual front end. At WebLeaps we have been designing websites since 2005, but personally designed websites since 1997. We have seen it all and are happy to answer any questions that you may have.

When you are looking at getting a new/redesigned website here are a few key questions to consider:

    1.  Are you talking to the person who will be designing your website, or a salesperson?
    2.  Who will be designing/coding/setting up the website? Is it done in-house or is it outsourced?
    3.  Is the company dedicated to working with you after the website is live? Or are they looking to get paid for the website and have no intentions of maintaining it long term.
    4. Who “owns” your website, is it your company? What happens if you want to move your website in 6 months, are you tied to their system?

At WebLeaps we create quality websites in-house, we do not outsource work overseas, you will speak with us directly about designing your website, your website is not tied to our company and can be moved if needed, and we know that the website is just the beginning and are happy to continue to provide services long after your website is launched.
