Important Questions to Ask from your Web Designer Firm

The wave of entrepreneurship is gaining pace dramatically, across the globe. Budding business owners are actively looking for responsive website design agencies in Dubai, so that they could get a hold on to a professional looking website and at the same time do not want to get ripped off completely in terms of cost. To save cost and not burn your resources to zero, you need to find a professional web design agency, particularly in the Dubai region that can guide you through the process. To educate the entrepreneurs of today, I have created this piece that will guide you about the important questions you must ask you web design firm, so that what you get in the end is totally per your requirements and flawless.

Is it your full-time job?

What is mostly observed is that too many times hobbyists are there online working to make a good living. By no means I am raising questions on their skill set but the universal truth is that, no hobbyist can compare his professionalism with that of a professional design agency. Business owners must always work with full time professionals to avoid any potential damage unprofessional designs can bring to their rapport.

What should I provide you to get started?

In order, to receive the best possible designs for your business, it is important that you know and have time to prepare the requirements and provide them to your design firm. Logo examples, color preferences, any other requirements and so on and so forth.

Do you have an in-house design team?

Asking for an in-house design team assures the business owners few things about their designs and the design firm. First this question assures them the professionalism of the design firm that it is equipped with the capabilities o handling tough projects with supreme professionalism and secondly it assures that the designs will be unique and original, as because when multiple brains work on one design, they can create it with complete uniqueness and originality.

Does your company specializes in sales and marketing design collateral?

Think of your designer as one of your sales people. Would you hire a salesperson that doesn’t know how to create a need? Would you pay a marketing director that doesn’t have a proven track record? The best designers are creative people who can sell things with their design concepts. Make sure you hire a sales and marketing expert to be your designer.

Do you offer the full website/Internet marketing package?

By the time your website is live to the world, you might have one company creating your design, another company offering programming services, and yet another providing the web site hosting. There’s nothing wrong with this and it should be expected these days. Online toolbox offer the hosting, marketing, development and management as the full package.

Can there be revisions if required?

Professional design agencies around the globe provide revision service to its clients. Marketing collateral designs are not approved in first go. There are exceptions though, but rare. For all the rest, a free revision service provides the ease of getting your designs per your will.

What is your average turnaround time per project?

The graphic components of most web sites should not require more than two weeks once the content is supplied. It is often the client that is slow in providing content and making decisions resulting in delayed launches. If you know what you want and have the content prepared, the designer can work much faster for you.

Who will own the final ownership?

You should always own your web site design and can change or add content whenever you want to. Be aware that designers are legally able to claim their designs as their own copyrighted work. Negotiate these terms in advance and make sure that YOU will own all original artwork. If something should happen to your designer, you always want to have the originals. At Dubai Monsters, we not only specialize in creating successful brand identity design but also provide full ownership to the owner ones the designs are finalized and delivered to them.
