Things web designers can do other then design your website
By: Jimmy Honsinger
We all know that a web designer can help you build a website. However, did you know that there is plenty more that they can do to help you make money from your site? Let's take a little look at the things that a web designer can help you with. You will be surprised at just how much you can end up getting for your money!
Before we dive into the main thing that a web designer can do when it comes to designer your website, there is one more thing that is also important. Most people who have websites built for them already have a website online. However, they may feel as though their website is not performing as well as it should. This is where a web designer can come into play. They will take a look at your website, and then they will look at how the website works, so that they can make good changes. These changes will be designed to drive up the amount of leads that you generate through your site. As you know, the more leads you have, the more money you are likely to make as a result! There is nobody out there who will be able to do this better than a web designer. After all, they have the best ability to know what needs to be changed and how to make the changes.
You could have the best possible website in the world, but if nobody can find it, it was just a waste of money having it built, right? Well, this is where a decent web designer can help. After they have gone through the help you build a website, then they can help you market it too.
Marketing actually starts during the initial building stages of your website. As you know, the process of getting to the top of the search engines is known as "Search Engine Optimization" (SEO). Many people think that most SEO takes place off page (i.e. posting links around the web). Your website designer will of course be able to do this ‘off-page’ optimization. However, the most important thing that you need to get right is the on-page stuff, which needs to be built into your website right from the start. This includes everything from the content that you post, to the meta tags on a page, and everything in between. If your web designer does not do this on-page optimization then you may want to work with a different team. This is something that is absolutely vital for a website to get discovered online.
On top of all of this there may be a few other services that your web designer may offer, apart from helping you build a website. This does vary from designer to designer, but for the most part they will offer a few extra services. Don’t forget to ask them!
