All too often, I get requests from visitors to help them salvage their web site. They have already hired someone to design it, they are horribly disappointed with the results, and now they
"need it fixed."
It is much more difficult to try to "fix" a web site then to start from scratch. I'd like to suggest a few things to look for before you hire someone
to create an online extension of who you are.
- Get references - nothing speaks louder than clients that have had experience with the company that you are considering hiring.
- Call them on the phone!
If you are comfortable talking to them, and they explain everything to you without making you feel "dumb," this is a good sign! Do they sound like they know what you're trying to achieve on your site? YOU are hiring them to do work for you. Feel good about it!
- How easy is it to get in touch with this company? Have they responded to your inquiry? Have they made themselves available to you in a timely
- View their portfolio. Is the work that they've done of good quality? Does it appear that they will be able to do what you're looking
for in your site? Are they experienced?
Finally, as in all aspects of life, don't try to cut corners now by hiring the least expensive. It may cost you more in the long run if you are not happy with the results. The reverse is
true also. The most expensive doesn't necessarily mean the best!
Ink2Art takes pride in being very intuitive when listening to you describe what you imagine for your web site. If you describe the feelings that you want your visitors to experience the moment
that they enter your site, the ambiance, the colors and the mood, I can usually produce that for you. I believe that comes from the creative "artist within," and my life experiences. It is very important to me to create a site
that portrays those feelings for you.
Whether it's a personal site, or a business site, what you show the world when they visit your web site for the first time will determine whether they stay, come back, or tell anyone else
about your site. It is extremely important to make your visitors feel welcome, and happy to have entered your little corner of the web. I know that I can accomplish that for you.
Ask anyone that has worked with me, and they will tell you that. You can contact any one of the clients that are listed in my portfolio for more information.
