Why Hire a Freelance Web Designer?
It’s a valid question. In this day and age you can quickly assemble a website using theme builders, drag and drop editors and free templates. Why spend the time and effort paying a freelance web designer?
The answer, in a nutshell, is that everybody’s a critic. With respect to the automated templates, you can spot them a mile off. Websites are for many a first impression of the business, so it stands to reason that it should look polished, built from scratch with that business in mind.
Besides looks, you’d also want your website to work under the hood – search engine optimisation, site speed, web hosting, mobile layout – the list goes on. To get the most juice out of your website, you will need access to these beyond the limitations set by free services. After all, you don’t buy a car for its paintwork, right? The more you research web development, the further you’ll appreciate its many layers, and the skill set needed by the designer.
